2009 l'Avocat "Cuvée Speciale", Graves

Wine Enthusiast: "This spicy, full-bodied effort shows the generosity of 2009. It has firm tannins, but they are matched by the full blackberry and black currant flavors. The dry core from wood aging is likely to soften over the next 2–3 years." (02/2013) Wine Spectator: "Tar and tobacco notes frame a core of currant fruit in this muscular red. A bit earthy, but has good concentration and a smoky finish. Best from 2012 through 2020. (Web-2012)" K&L Notes: Released from the Chateau in 2019- L'Avocat is in the small commune of Cerons, which is located j ...

2015 L'Avocat Rouge, Graves

Ch. L’Avocat is from the small commune of Cerons, which is located just north of Barsac and Sauternes in the southern Graves appellation. I met Nicola Allison at a small conference of Women from Bordeaux and Napa Valley in Napa earlier. She followed my advice by sending her wines to our hotel in April to be tasted, and Clyde and I liked them. I followed up by visiting the estate almost eight weeks later and was shown the gravely, plateau vineyards by her husband Sean, who manages the vines. The vineyards were purchased by the Allisons in 2002; the fruit ...

The palate is medium-bodied with impressive, tightly knit black fruit laced with cedar and white pepper.

2017 Pessac-Léognan de Haut Bailly, Pessac-Leognan

This is the third wine of Château Haut-Bailly. From the winery: "Our third wine bears the name and style of its prestigious appellation, known for deep, dark, fruit-driven wines. Pessac-Léognan by Haut-Bailly originates from the estate’s youngest vines, which contain low levels of tannin. A brief stint of barrel ageing provides a little more structure and softness, while retaining a wine that is enjoyable after a couple of years in bottle."
