100 Point Bordeaux Collection

Price: $2,399.00

 
Many avid Bordeaux collectors (and Robert Parker) consider the legendary 2009 and 2010 vintages to be amongst the very best in history. We have assembled an exclusive collection of “Perfect 100” point bottles from relatively under-the-radar Chateau that represent perhaps the best ‘value’ among all of the most acclaimed bottlings.


Six bottle collection includes two bottles each of:

Chateau Montrose 2010 - RP 100
Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou 2009 - RP 100
Chateau Leoville Poyferre 2009 - RP 100

Note: these coveted bottles have been aging gracefully under pristine conditions in Bordeaux until now to guarantee 100% provenance. Each collection is imported directly from Bordeaux, arriving March, 2018. 

Chateau Montrose 2010
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 100 Points
This is considered to be among the greatest vintages ever made in Montrose, right up with the 1929, 1945, 1947, 1959, 1961, 1989, 1990 and 2009. Harvest was October 15 to 17. The wine has really come on since I last tasted it, and it needs at least another 10 years of cellaring. The blend was 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. The wine is opaque black/blue, with an incredible nose of blueberry and blackberry liqueur, with hints of incense, licorice, and acacia flowers. Tannins are incredibly sweet and very present. The wine is full-bodied, even massive, with great purity, depth and a finish that goes on close to a minute. This is a 50- to 75-year-old wine that will repay handsomely those with good aging genes. (Note: The Chateau Montrose website gives an aging potential of 2020-2100.)

Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou 2009
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 100 Points
The 2009 Ducru Beaucaillou will eclipse the brilliant wines produced in 2005, 2003 and 2000. It will be interesting to see how the 2009 fares against the 2010 after twenty years of aging, but my money is on the 2009. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot that achieved 13.5% natural alcohol, this inky purple, unctuous wine possesses classic aromas of graphite, creme de cassis, blueberries, violets, licorice and Christmas fruitcake. Full-bodied and intense with Ducru’s inimitable elegance and purity, it should firm up in the bottle after 7-10 years of cellaring and last for 40-50 years. Magnificent!

Chateau Leoville Poyferre 2009
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 100 Points
One of the more flamboyant and sumptuous wines of the vintage, this inky/purple-colored St.-Julien reveals thrilling levels of opulence, richness and aromatic pleasures. A soaring bouquet of creme de cassis, charcoal, graphite and spring flowers is followed by a super-concentrated wine with silky tannins, stunning amounts of glycerin, a voluptuous, multilayered mouthfeel and nearly 14% natural alcohol. Displaying fabulous definition for such a big, plump, massive, concentrated effort, I suspect the tannin levels are high even though they are largely concealed by lavish amounts of fruit, glycerin and extract. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2040.
