Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 96 points: Coming in at 140-grams-per-liter residual sugar, the 2009 de Fargues was picked from September 28 over three tries until October 19, a day before heavy showers curtailed the vintages. It seems to have gone into its shell...
Wine Enthusiast, 94 points: Superbly ripe this wine shows upfront botrytis and honey flavors. At its core it bears opulence with depth and concentration. The open character of the wine is shot through with lemon and orange zest flavors.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 93 points: The blend for the 2009 is mostly Merlot with some Cabernet Franc but hit over 14.5% natural alcohol. This is a big chewy wine made under the guidance of Hubert de Bouard. Dense ruby/purple with notes of blackberry and...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 95 points: Possibly the best second wine ever made at Latour (and I love how the 1982 is drinking at age 30), the 2009 Les Forts de Latour is composed of two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot blended with a tiny dollop...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 100 points: An opulent Petrus very much in the stylistic family of the 1990 this 100% Merlot has a dense plum/purple color and a sweet nose of mulberries black cherries some subtle toast and licorice as well as a floral element. A...
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 95 points: The Sigalas Rabaud was sensational out of barrel and served blind, the wine does nothing to dispel my initial optimism that this is the apogee for the estate – so far. It is bestowed with an intense bouquet of quince...

My wine buying experience with JJ Buckley was fantastic. They had inventory of what I wanted at the right price and got it delivered to me on time and in perfect condition. I will buy from them again and again and again.
