  • ARBALEST 2015 BORDEAUX

    Item #: 345941
    Bottle Size: 750ml

    From the highly regarded winemaker from Hartwell, Realm, Kata and Fait Main (Teeter Totter) comes an absurd value. The inaugural release of the Arbalest is a project involving winemaker Benoit Touquette and importer/distributor Kimberly Jones. Our French and California wine buyers sampled this wine together last week and absolutely loved it. After tasting it, we knew we had to bring it into the store and quickly snapped up every single bottle that was available. This lush and juicy full-bodied wine boasts an abundance of dark fruit flavors and incredible texture with silky smooth tannins.

    The idea of Arbalest was born when Benoit and Kimberly were traveling in France. They tasted a lot of wine in Bordeaux and both felt they could improve the quality of reasonably priced wine from the region. Benoit drew on his relationships in Bordeaux and found a source for high quality grapes. Benoit then did what he does best. He made this wine in his style consistent with his other wines, but kept the price amazingly low.

    Benoit was born in Bordeaux where he was surrounded by family and friends in the wine business. He was amazed at the passion people had for wine and soon felt it himself. He graduated from Bordeaux University with a Master’s Degree in Oenology and learned from one of Bordeaux's greatest, Michel Rolland. After some time, Benoit decided it was time for a new challenge and decided to go to Napa. There he worked with another legendary winemaker, Andy Erickson, whose resume includes such iconic estates as Dalla Valle, Screaming Eagle and Spottswoode.

    The mentorship of Michel Rolland and Andy Erickson was transformative for Benoit. He has learned well and clearly knows how to make delicious wines. In the spirit of full disclosure, we have to admit this wine possesses the character of Touquette’s full-bodied Napa reds. The quality of the perfectly ripened fruit flavors and creamy texture in this Bordeaux blend made us feel like we were enjoying a much higher priced wine. It does have a touch of minerality you might encounter in Bordeaux, but this is a dead ringer for a high quality Napa wine.

    Enjoy the inaugural release of this limited production wine while you can.

    Arbalest displays aromas of blue florals, blackberry, boysenberry and plum. On the palate, this wine is full-bodied with well- integrated tannins and flavors mirroring the nose. Fresh dark fruit including blueberry and creme de cassis are followed by beautiful hints of umami on the mid palate. The finish is seamless and persistent. Drink now through 2022.

    eROBERT PARKER 93-95 POINTS: "Probably the wine of the vintage, once again. Only 9,000 bottles of the 2013 Ausone were produced, as crop size was 50% of normal. However, proprietor Alain Vauthier and his daughter certainly have proven a truly great wine can be produced in some of the most trying conditions Bordeaux wine producers have had to deal with over the last 20 years. Yields were only 22 hectoliters per hectare and the final blend was 55% Cabernet Franc and 45% Merlot. The haunting aromas of wet rocks, spring flowers, blue and black fruits and forest floor are followed by an incredibly dense, attractive wine with sweet tannin, stunning concentration and texture, medium body and a depth that is essentially unreal in a vintage such as this. The wine is a superb example of great winemaking under the most difficult circumstances. Unlike more recent Ausones, this should be reasonably drinkable in 5-6 years and yet be capable of lasting 25-30."

    Born out of a strong attachment to the appellation of which this is most representative and most distinctive, Château Belle Coline comes from a 12-hectare domain recently acquired by Christophe Reboul Salze, a merchant of Bordeaux wines for more than thirty years and owner of Château Les Grands Merechaux and of Château Gigault. Scents of spicy cherry, persimmon, raspberry tea and light florals lead to a palate filled with high-toned fruit, red plums, cherry heering, light sweet brown spices and mixed red berries. Excellent acidity and biggish tannins shore up the fruit flavors, ready for some red meats, game or similar rich fare.

    When I have some in my glass, I can't help thinking of Bellevu'’s subterranean, chalk-walled cellar. I taste it in the wine a chalky tannin and sort of a dusty coating on the wild berry fruit. Think about it gorgeous tannin with fruit and flesh to match. Kermit Lynch

    ROBERT PARKER 97 POINTS: "Once again in 2010, notes of mocha, espresso roast, chocolate, creme de cassis and scorched earth soar from this opaque purple-colored wine. It is aged in 100% new oak, but that is hardly noticeable given the wine's sensational richness and extravagant fruit. This wine is classic, full-bodied and intense. It's just a shame that less than 8,000 bottles are usually made. This wine is still backward, but very full, rich, and impressively pure in texture. Give it another 5-8 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 20+ years."

    WINE SPECTATOR 94 POINTS: "Loaded, with intense bittersweet cocoa, mulled blackberry, steeped fig and warm plum reduction notes, all layered together and pushed by a loamy finish. Dark, deep and intense, showing some serious grip. Best from 2016 through 2030."

    eROBERT PARKER 91 POINTS: "Probably the flagship estate of visionary Stephan von Neipperg, the 2011 Canon La Gaffeliere is less exotic and open-knit than usual, but it exhibits beautiful notes of black currants, licorice, camphor and forest floor. A burgeoning complexity as well as medium to full body and well-integrated wood are found in this pure beauty. Drink it over the next 10-12 years."

    WINE SPECTATOR 93 POINTS: "Offers a deliciously mouthwatering range of red currant, damson plum, blackberry and loganberry fruit, spiced with hints of black tea and cinnamon and backed by a long, briary, fine-grained finish. A sleek, refined wine that should age well. Best from 2016 through 2028."

    Chateau Soubiran is located in the Cotes du Marmandais in South West France, just east of Bordeaux. Using Bordeaux varietals, this wine features an abundance of rich, flavorful fruit and represents an excellent value in comparison to wines of comparable quality coming out of Bordeaux.

    The Soubiran family property is located on the slopes of the right bank of the Garonne River. Vineyards have been planted on the property since 1868 and the estate totals approximately 30 acres under vine. The vineyards were replanted in the 80's with two principal grape varieties, Merlot and the Malbec to take advantage of the clay and limestone dominant soil.

    Deep ruby with purple highlights. This wine has an elegant bouquet with florals along with red and dark fruits which are perfectly ripened, complemented by notes of spice, herbs and licorice. On the palate, the wine is round and plush in texture with velvety tannins. Rich in flavor, this wine boasts flavors of plum, cherry and blackberry culminating in a pleasing finish.

    WINE ADVOCATE 92 POINTS - The wine offers up notes of jammy black cherries, black currants, licorice, camphor, underbrush and some subtle vanillin. The wine is full-bodied, voluptuously textured and rich, with good acidity, surprising freshness and laser-like definition given its ampleness and length. It can be drunk early on for its beautiful fruit, but look for this wine to hit its stride in 5-7 years and last for two decades. The 2010 is a very strong effort from this 33-acre vineyard, which is located primarily on the south-facing hillside of the Cote Pavie, with current super-achiever Larcis Ducasse nearby. From vines cropped at 14 hectoliters per hectare, the wine’s final blend is 73% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, but the alcohol hit 15.5%, making it one of the highest official levels in all of Bordeaux. No doubt their southerly exposure rather than late harvest accounted for such ripeness. Robert M. Parker., Jr.

    WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - One the finest Clerc Milons I have ever tasted, and showing better from bottle than from barrel, this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and the rest a tiny bit of Carmenere and Petit Verdot has a complex nose of cedar wood, red and black fruits, white chocolate and creme de cassis. A very powerful wine at 14.5% natural alcohol (quite high for a Medoc), this wine has impressive purity and texture, a full-bodied mouthfeel, relatively sweet tannin, but an already endearing complexity, length and richness that are hard to ignore. This is a superb effort and one of the wines that is usually reasonably priced among the classified growths. Robert M. Parker, Jr.

    WINE ADVOCATE 96 POINTS - The 2010 Lynch Bages is an absolutely brilliant wine, and somewhat reminiscent at this stage in its development of the profound 1989. Jean-Charles Cazes, who took over for his father a number of years ago, has produced a magnificent wine with the classic creme de cassis note intermixed with smoke, graphite and spring flowers. It is a massive Lynch Bages, full-bodied and very 1989-ish, with notable power, loads of tannin, and extraordinary concentration and precision. This is not a Lynch Bages to drink in its exuberant youth, but one to hold on to for 5-6 years and drink over the following three decades. Robert M. Parker, Jr.

    ROBERT PARKER 91 POINTS: "The beautiful second wine is Alain Vauthier’s 2011 La Chapelle d'Ausone. It possesses a dense ruby/purple color along with the nobility, class, finesse, precision, purity and copious blue and black fruits intermixed with a floral component, good minerality, and a medium-bodied, intense, rich personality. Never heavy or over-bearing, this is a beauty. As I have written many times in the past, the Vauthiers are making a "second wine" that is greater than many of the outstanding wines produced at this estate in the 20th century. This wine should drink well for 15 or more years."

    eROBERT PARKER 87 POINTS: "A dark and fruity style of wine, Blaignan’s 2012 exhibits ripe tannin and medium body in an endearing, charming style. An equal-part blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon hardly explains the plumpness and juiciness, given the high Merlot content in this cru bourgeois. It is a pretty as well as seductive style of wine to drink over the next 4-5 years."

    ROBERT PARKER 92 POINTS: "The 2014 Carbonnieux Rouge has a delightful, clean and pure bouquet with gravel and sous-bois scents neatly interwoven into the blackberry fruit. It feels quite understated, but it gains intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a keen line of acidity that lends this impressive tension and vibrancy. There is not enormous length here, but the sorbet-like freshness wins you over. Keep in the cellar for 2-3 more years and then enjoy over the next 15-18 years."

    ROBERT PARKER 90 POINTS: "This is another over-achieving estate that tends to produce wines with lots of intensity and structure. This wine certainly has the formidable intensity one expects from Charmail, but the tannins are silky smooth and the result is the sexiest Charmail to date. An opulent, even voluptuously textured wine, full-bodied and dense purple in color, it is a seductive blend of 47% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered and came in with natural alcohols of 14%. The low acidity, plush fruit and silky tannins all suggest drinking this over the next decade. It is another sleeper of the vintage, of which there is nearly an endless supply in this great year."

    DECANTER 2012 BORDEAUX VINTAGE OVERVIEW -" Without replacing St-Julien as a beacon of reliability, this appellation makes progress year on year. The more clayey soils retain water in dry years to provide a certain freshness that blends well with the general meatiness of the St-Estèphe style. With only five classed growths (though two are 2CCs, same as the much better-endowed Pauillac) the crus bourgeois have a place to shine, which they did in 2012."

    Chateau Marsau is located just a few kilometers east of Saint Emilion near the historical village of Francs and has been heralded by Robert Parker as "The Petrus of the Côtes de Francs.” Here, the vines are located on gentle, south facing slopes, penetrating deep into the red and grey clay soils. Marsau’s aim is to take advantage of each grape’s natural concentration and faithfully extract the personality of the terroir and the variety. Each parcel is vinified separately and aged in French oak barrels for 12 months prior to assemblage of the final blend. The resulting wine is delicious, fully expressing itself with its rich, ripe fruit flavors and silky tannins.

    Deep purple in color. Very aromatic with lifted violets and a core of dark plum, berries, and dark currant fruit followed by notes of tobacco, organic earth, leather, roasted coffee beans, cocoa, and cedar. On the palate the wine is full-bodied with tannins smooth as silk. Impressive depth to the dark fruit flavors, blackberry paste, warm baking spice, graphite and cocoa. A very complete wine with excellent persistence and length.

    JAMES SUCKLING 92 POINTS - "Bright nose with blueberry, violets and vanilla. Crushed blackberries and some sweet licorice. Wonderful layered texture on the palate with velvety tannins and pure dark fruit. Hints of chocolate and new oak comes through on the finish. Give it at least until 2016 to open."
