The Great and the Good - new GrapePip lots live this morning

While I am never quite sure of the meaning intended by the use of words such as "great" and "classic" when applied to wines and vintages, the following have, between them, garnered glowing reports in the press and include some 100-pointers among the list:

2009 Château Pichon Longueville au Baron de Longueville, Pauillac
"It is a voluptuous, opulent Pichon Longueville Baron that may eclipse anything they have made in the past." Robert Parker
N.B. And a case of bottles here

2009 Château Haut Brion, Pessac-Léognan
" remains beautifully balanced with a sumptuous finish to die for." Neal Martin
N.B. And a two-bottle lot of the 1990 here

2009 La Grande Rue Grand Cru, Francois Lamarche
"This is very stylish with lovely acid/fruit/tannin harmony and outstanding length." Burghound

2007 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge Clos des Papes
