Wine Enthusiast, 92 points: This château is progressing well in raising its quality as this big, chunky wine shows. The fruit has a solid texture, with great black swirls of dark berry and smoky flavors in a tannic cloak.
Wine Enthusiast, 96 points: Definite richness alongside classic elegance. It's a stylish wine the fruit integrated into a beautiful structure. It's not all refinement because there is also a weight to the black plum skin and dark berry character. A...

Wine Enthusiast, 93 points: Aromatic wine with richness as well as soft tannins. It's quite a mouthful of explosive red berry fruits with delicious acidity. The finish is is easy and rounded. R.V.
Wine Enthusiast, 91 points: Smoky aromas emerge and the palate follows with black currant and an initial edge of bitterness. There's intense acidity on this balanced medium-term aging wine. R.V.

Vinous, 90 points: The 2008 Kirwan has a clean and fresh bouquet with lifted, quite pure blackberry, raspberry and violet aromas that blossom in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe, crisp and fresh tannin, vivid blackberry and...
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 93 points: Another incredibly successful sleeper of the vintage the 2008 Lascombes confirms just how many top 2008s were produced. A dark plum/ruby/purple-tinged color is followed by a sexy up-front perfume of forest floor damp...
Vinous, 93 points: The 2008 Malescot St Exupery has a conservative, correct bouquet that to be frank is rather unexciting compared to its peers, although it does open and reveal briary and crushed rose petal scents and bingo, you are soon...

JJ Buckley provides an opportunity for me to find fine wines in low (or no) quantity in my area. Always a great alternative to trying to find local (which is often times hard).
