Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou St. Julien 2004 750ml
93 Robert Parker - 92 Wine Spectator - 92 Decanter
Rated 93 - One can’t say enough about the efforts Bruno Borie is pouring into this wonderful estate that I have often called the “Lafite Rothschild of St.-Julien.” An undeniable success, the 2004 Ducru...

Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou St. Julien 2005 750ml
97 Robert Parker - 95 Wine Spectator - 95 Decanter
Rated 97 - The 2005 Ducru Beaucaillou is a 10,000-case blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Merlot (they used to produce 18,000-20,000 cases). It is an exceptionally powerful wine with a dense purple...

Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou St. Julien 2008 750ml
95 Robert Parker
Rated 95+ - One of the stars of the vintage, and a remarkable achievement in 2008, with impressive richness, this dense purple colored wine is almost as opaque as the 2010. Spring flowers, crushed rocks,...

Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou St. Julien 2010 750ml
100 Decanter - 98 Robert Parker - 97 Wine Spectator
Rated 99-100 - I can’t believe the precision and complexity in this wine. This is really amazing with minerals, berries, currants and blackberries. Full and extraordinary. It goes on and on and on. Tasted...

Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou St. Julien 2011 750ml
94 Wine Spectator - 93 Decanter - 92 Robert Parker
Rated 94 - This is rather well-endowed for the vintage, with thickly layered ganache, currant paste, fig sauce and blackberry confiture notes still grappling with one another, while briary grip and dark...

Chateau Gloria St. Julien 2008 750ml
93 Robert Parker
Rated 93 - This estate has been fashioning terrific wines over recent vintages, and the 2008 is an opulent, dense purple-hued effort displaying sweet creme de cassis fruit intermixed with hints of tapenade,...

Chateau Gloria St. Julien 2010 750ml
93 Robert Parker - 90 Wine Spectator
Rated 93 - The 2010 Gloria is an ass-kicking, fabulous value once again from this estate, which would probably be classified if the 1855 hierarchy of the wines of the Medoc were ever done again. Abundant...

Chateau Gloria St. Julien 2011 750ml
91 Robert Parker - 90 Wine Spectator
Rated 88-91 - This estate continues to go from strength to strength. Another sleeper of the vintage, the 2011 is excellent, possibly outstanding. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by abundant aromas...

Chateau Gruaud Larose St. Julien 2009 750ml
95 Robert Parker - 92 Wine Spectator
Rated 95 - As I wrote in my barrel tasting note, the 2009 appears to be the finest Gruaud Larose since their 1990. Some of my concerns about too much brett in previous vintages are long gone as the purity...

Chateau Gruaud Larose St. Julien 2011 750ml
91 Robert Parker - 90 Wine Spectator - 90 Stephen Tanzer
Rated 89-91 - I would have rated the 2011 Gruaud Larose slightly higher if it had not been for the abundant, dry, slightly astringent tannins in the finish. Nevertheless, there is a lot to like about this...
