89-91 Robert Parker's WIne Advocate:
"The 2012 Meursault 1er Cru Sous Le Dos d’Ane has a refined bouquet with subtle scents of almond and white chocolate tincturing the tightly wound bouquet. The palate is refined, almost introspective on the entry. It is well-balanced with fine acidity, though it remains very focused and linear. There finish is bright and vivacious with citrus lemon and sour lemon lining the long finish. Very fine." - Neal Martin (December 2013)

"This is a crazy red with dried chipotle and red chili pepper character with hints of dark fruits. Blueberry concentration. Full body, with fabulous fruit and an underlying firm tannin structure. Very silky tannins. This is the best carmenere-based red from Chile. 92% carmenere and 8% petit verdot." (6/20/14)

"I love the crazy character of this carménère-based red with hints of petit verdot. Red chilli pepper character with hints of dark fruit, full body and very silky tannins." (07/22/2014)

100 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"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.)" -Robert Parker (Aug 2014)

97 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Rock solid, displaying a dense core of plum, steeped currant and braised fig fruit, with racy charcoal and ganache notes. Intensely chalky, offering flesh and refinement to match the bracing minerality, this shows hints of grilled savory, iron, warm paving stone and bitter orange on the riveting finish. Should age very slowly. Best from 2019 through 2038." -JM (Mar 31, 2013)

97 Points - James Suckling:
"A perfumed and pure Montrose, with lots of currants, berries and spices that evolve to chocolate and light coffee. Full body, with super racy tannins and bright and clean finish. Very fine and structured. A balance and freshness to it all as well as beautiful form and tension. Try in 2018." -James Suckling (November 14th, 2013)

96 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This is such an elegant wine that has all the structure of the vintage. Surrounding the tannins, the wine is sweet and ripe, with smokiness from the wood. It’s powerful, elegant and sophisticated with a strong sense of poise. The tannins promise long-term aging." -Roger Voss (5/1/2013)

94(+?) Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Bright, deep ruby-red. Superripe, deep aromas of black raspberry, cassis, plum, minerals, licorice and bitter chocolate. Densely packed, elegant and classically dry, with creamy depth of dark fruit and mineral flavors given definition and cut by terrific vinosity. This compellingly pure, extract-rich wine showed increasing energy as it opened in the glass. Finishes with big, dusty tannins and outstanding length and perfume. A great vintage for Montrose, in a modern style. Following the first couple vintages made under the direction of Jean Delmas, the '09 and '10 have shown considerably more stuffing. I would not be at all surprised if my score proved to be overly conservative." -Stephen Tanzer (Jul/Aug 13)

"Bursting with youthful fruit and structure, this is just beginning to mellow.

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Dark ruby. Cherry and dark berries on the nose, with a hint of dark chocolate adding depth. Round and fleshy on entry, then lively and more taut in the mid-palate, with the dark fruit qualities repeating. Finishes with good focus and a lingering note of candied dark berries." -Stephen Tanzer (Sep/Oct 13)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2011 Vinas de Gain red is pure Tempranillo from Laguardia made from vines averaging 30 years of age, fermented in open vats and aged in barrique for one year. Expressive and fruity in the nose, the palate is much more powerful; it has great purity, with clean flavors and a special freshness. It’s very primary, built of pure fruit, raspberries and strawberries. Drink 2015-2020." -Luis Gutierrez (Dec 2013)

95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Things start heating up with the awesome 2009 Pagos Viejos, which is a blend of Juan Carlos's old plots of vine. It demands coaxing from the glass, the broody dark berry, licorice-tinged fruit remaining bashful under a cloak of French oak, but intimating something alluring ten years down the line. The palate is full-bodied with a silky smooth texture, the oak singing from the same hymn sheet as the precocious fruit that is underpinned by super-fine tannins. It offers weightless intensity. The Pagos Viejos has fine symmetry and poise towards the finish with a just a faint tang of Seville orange marmalade on the aftertaste. Everything is in place - just add time. Drink 2018-2030." -Neal Martin (Aug 2012)

Alicante (Artadi) "Vinedos de El Seque" DOC 2012 (Alicante, Spain)

CASE PRICE = $9.99 per bottle (add 12+ quantity to your basket)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2012 Vinedos de El Seque is 85% Monastrell and the rest Syrah. It’s a young wine, fermented in open vats with natural yeasts. Only 30% of the wine ages in barrel for four months and the rests stays in stainless steel to preserve the fruit. Clean nose of red fruits, licorice, cassis and spices. The meaty note of Syrah develops with time in the glass. Very fresh, polished tannins, easy to drink, just a little warm in the finish (14.5% alcohol). It represents a good introduction to fresh Monastrell at a good price point. An every-day wine, a crowd pleaser. Drink 2013-2014." -Luis Gutierrez (Oct 2013)
