Under-The-Radar Gems. Potential 100-Point Perfection. Difficult Finds.
Featuring Petrus (99-100JS), Feytit-Clinet, Trotanoy (100JS), La Fleur Petrus (99-100JS), Bélair-Monange (95-98AG)

Bordeaux 2016 remains hot, and it is not just the regions of Saint-Julien, Saint-Estephe, and Pauillac, but the small and treasured appellation of Pomerol cannot be overlooked. In fact, in 2016 there are many tiny estates that challenged their 2015 and 2009 performances, which are widely considered the new benchmarks for the region. When Pomerol is on, there are few wines in the world that deliver such a sensual pleasure with underlying structure from the glass. In 2016, there are many wines bordering on perfection and they are released in minimal quantities to a handful of merchants around the world – best of all, they are not all at Petrus and Le Pin prices.

Just look at the approachable gems of La Cabanne (94-95JS) and Maillet (94-95JS), each available under $40; or the rising star of Feytit-Clinet (93-96AG/93-95WA), which has been reviewed as the “Best ever?” and delivered with “such purity on the nose that you would almost consider this to be a Grand Cru Burgundy.” And it would not be complete without including the overachieving Gazin (94-96WA), “which is enjoying its finest run of form since I began tasting the wine in the 1990s.”

Well, we are now adding the recent and monumental debuts that are synonymous of the region, the highly allocated giants of Petrus (99-100JS), Lafleur (97-100AG) and Trotanoy (96-99WS/96-98WA) – a wine that Neal Martin ranked as the most memorable for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate alongside Clinet (96-98WA), stating “Trotanoy was truly magnificent: regal, unfathomably complex and simply up there with the very best Pomerol produced in 2016.” And while many collector eyes are on the 100-point potential from Petrus (99-100JS), Lafleur (97-100AG) and Vieux Chateau Certan (97—100AG), we encourage you to explore and look at wines like La Conseillante (99-100JS), that truly “is one of the undisputed stars of the vintage” and the Petrus neighbor of La Fleur Petrus (98-99JS/95-98AG), which has been called “about as close as one can get to the mythical wine [Petrus].” Like the Château Canon that we so emphatically preached about over the past few weeks before it sold out, these are among the “must-buy” wines from the 2016 Bordeaux vintage that were so striking, they will be remembered for decades to come.

Cheers,
Jeff
