Offered FEB 16th, 2018

This is an excellent opportunity to lay in a couple of 2009s that present some of the best value of all from this brilliant blockbuster vintage, just as they step into their 40-year drinking window.
With so many 1er and even village Burgundies racing through this price-point, it is a relief to see lofty scoring Bordeaux from this magnificent year still available after they’ve had a chance to shake off the awkwardness of youth.
Offered by the case from European stock, in order to get these excellent prices.

St. Pierre 2009
$1,380 per case (= $115 per bottle)
98 points Robert Parker: “The all-time greatest wine I have ever tasted from Saint-Pierre, this estate, the smallest of the grand cru classes of St.-Julien, has an opaque purple color and a spectacular nose of subtle charcoal, creme de cassis, blackberry, and incense. Full-bodied, with striking intensity and flamboyantly rich, exuberant flavors bursting with extract, the St. Pierre has no hard edges, but rather massive, incredibly well-endowed blockbuster style, which should prove to be monumental. Give it 6-8 years to take on more definition and calm down, but this is a 30- to 40-year wine. Bravo!” Drink 2018-2058


La Lagune 2009
$948 per case (= $79 per bottle)

95 points Robert Parker: “It is not unusual that the 2009 La Lagune is a spectacular effort given the fact that this estate has been making terrific wines over the last decade or more. It boasts a dense purple color as well as a beautiful perfume of blueberries, mulberries, cassis, white chocolate and subtle toasty oak. Notes of Chinese black tea, cedarwood and forest floor also make an appearance in the singular aromatic and flavor profiles. This sumptuous, full-bodied La Lagune possesses low acidity, abundant but ripe, sweet tannin and a long, 45-second finish. Give this beauty 5-7 years of bottle age and drink it over the following three decades.” Drink 2017-2047
