Bordeaux reigns supreme in 2019 achieving a brilliant vintage! The wines are impressive, elegant, and balanced across the board. The vintage is everything a winemaker could wish for: ripe, lush, and abundant in quality. Warm days in the beginning of the summer provided for healthy, vibrant, and powerful fruit that is clearly demonstrated in these spectacular wines. 2019 is already buzzing as a candidate for vintage of the century and it is not hard to see why. This is an extremely high-quality vintage that we recommend collecting and enjoying for years to come.
Although the global landscape is tougher than ever, the first estates we are offering today have placed their prices 30% lower than last year to show their support for the market. These are the lowest prices we’ve seen since 2014 and the early ratings from the critics have been incredible including a 97-99+ WA rating for Cos d’Estournel and a 98-100 point rating for Pontet Canet. Quantities are limited, place your order today! - Laurent Jaubert, Wally's Bordeaux Buyer

2019 Chateau Malescot Saint Exupery
Wally's Price: $44
2019 Chateau Pontet Canet
Wally's Price: $80
The blend this year is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Very deep purple-black colored, the 2019 Pontet-Canet has the most gorgeous, lifted perfume of lilacs, dark chocolate, Morello cherries and rosehip tea over a core of crème de cassis, plum preserves, licorice and woodsmoke with a waft of fragrant soil. Full-bodied, rich and fantastically opulent, the palate offers layer upon layer of ripe, finely grained tannins and seamless freshness, finishing very long and mineral laced. A real head-turner, this beauty is absolutely going to steal your heart! LGB-06/2020

2019 Chateau Cos d’Estournel
Wally's Price: $149
Harvest for the grand vin began on the 23rd of September and finished on the 7th of October. Composed of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot (with no Petit Verdot or Cabernet Franc this year), yields for this wine in 2019 were 43 hectoliters per hectare, and it is aging in 55% new oak. It came in at an alcohol level of 14.02% and an IPT of 67. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Cos d'Estournel soars out of the glass with vibrant black raspberries, Black Forest cake and crushed blackcurrants scents plus nuances of red roses, wild sage, dark chocolate and cast-iron pan with a waft of woodsmoke. The medium to full-bodied palate is taut, muscular and built like a skyscraper, with firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness supporting the concentrated black fruit flavors, finishing with incredible length and depth. This wine so beautifully, clearly captures the juxtaposition between the periods of dry heat and those hallelujah moments of refreshing rain - the hallmarks of this great vintage. It's a vinous masterpiece in the making. LGB – 06/2020
