2015 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $40)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One surprise to emerge from this blind tasting was the super performance of Chante Cigale's 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape. This full-bodied blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault boasts wonderfully supple, creamy tannins, raspberry and cherry fruit, and a dusting of cinnamon and allspice on the long, dusty finish. Bravo!

Some white peppery elements, violets, brooding dark spices, blue fruits and dark plums. Builds from the ground up. Dark stones. Impressive, powerful wine. Drink from 2025. *Top 100 of 2017*" (8/2017) 97 points Wine Spectator: "A stunner from the get-go, with waves of thoroughly seductive boysenberry, plum, blueberry and raspberry reduction forming the core, while roasted apple wood, rooibos tea, bergamot, and anise notes flash throughout.

94-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the reds, I was able to taste all of the components of the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape and this will unquestionably be another terrific vintage from this estate. All of the samples had inky, purple colors, classic aromatics, good acidity and freshness, and balanced profiles. The Mourvèdre, in particular, was beautiful.

Very long, with a sublime feel through the mineral-tinged finish. So seductive already, but this will cruise in the cellar. Drink now through 2040."

An iron girder drives the finish, pulling everything along. This is defined by pure, sleek cut. Best from 2020 through 2035."

2015 Famille Perrin "Domaine du Clos des Tourelles" Gigondas (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The finest vintage to date, the 2015 Gigondas Le Clos des Tourelles comes from a tiny vineyard located just inside the village of Gigondas. Incorporating a touch of Syrah, this Grenache dominated beauty reveals a deep ruby/purple color as well as off the chart notes of black raspberries, black cherries, pepper, garrigue, and tons of that classic Gigondas spice. I wrote “Wow” more than once in my notes and this full-bodied 2015 has ultra-fine tannin, perfect balance, and a stacked mid-palate.

It’s a downright sexy, voluptuous 2015 offering textbook notes of kirsch liqueur, ground pepper, herbes de Provence, and incense. It picks up more dark fruit with time in the glass, is full-bodied, has plenty of fat and glycerin, and ample tannin, although they’re so polished you have to hunt for them.

Huge notes of orange blossom, peach, tangerine, honeysuckle, and caramelized citrus flow from this insanely good, unctuous, heavenly textured white that possesses full-bodied richness and power, yet stays light, graceful and perfectly balanced on the palate.

It’s a big, downright-sexy St Joseph that does everything right.

This inky black/blue-colored Hermitage offers an off-the-charts array of blackberries, blueberries, crushed rocks, wood smoke and charred meats.

Mostly destemmed and aged in 40% new French oak, it offers full-bodied notes of blackberry and cassis, impressive purity of fruit, fine tannin and a lengthy finish.

98 points Wine Spectator: "This has a drop-dead gorgeous core of cassis and raspberry pâte de fruit flavors that holds center stage but still allows notes of Lapsang souchong tea, anise, incense and shiso leaf to chime in. Very long, with a sublime feel through the mineral-tinged finish.seductive already, but this will cruise in the cellar. (JM)" (8/2017) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bottled in May, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is a floral, elegant, unbelievably complex wine. Roses and violets, cherries and stone fruit, cinnamon and allspice and more are carried across the full-bodied yet almost weightless pala ...Read More »

2015 Alain Voge "Vieilles Vignes" Cornas (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Also showing the incredible purity and elegance that's the hallmark of this estate, the 2015 Cornas les Vieilles Vignes comes from the La Côte and Mazards lieux-dits and is a bigger, richer, more mineral-laced version of the Les Chailles. Black raspberries, blueberries, crushed rocks, liquid violets, black olives and new saddle leather all flow to a full-bodied, rich, concentrated Cornas that has sweet tannins (but plenty of them), impeccable balance and a killer finish. Buy it by the case (there’s a little more than 1,000 cases made) and enjoy bottles o ...Read More »

2015 La Ferme du Mont "Côtes Capelan" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 La Ferme du Mont "Côtes Capelan" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even better than the Vendange cuvee, and I suspect one of the wines of the vintage, Stephane’s 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Côtes Capelan is the top wine of the estate and is made from 80% Grenache and 10% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre, raised 70% in concrete and 30% in barrels. There’s under 500 cases of this beauty and it reveals a deep purple color as well as decadent notes of blackberries, blackcurrants, crushed rocks and melted licorice. Full-bodied, thick, unctuous and massively concentrated, with ripe tannin and a killer finish, don’t miss it! If you ...Read More »

2015 Domaine Courbis "Champelrose" Cornas (Pre-Arrival)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sexy, rounded and voluptuous, the roughly 1,500-case 2015 Cornas Champelrose is the entry-level cuvée that’s all destemmed and aged in 25% new barrels. It's easily the most approachable in this lineup and has gorgeous notes of cured meats, toasted spice, black raspberries, black cherries and licorice. Full-bodied, layered and rounded, it should drink beautifully on release, but evolve gracefully. (JD)" (12/2016) 94 points Wine Spectator: "This sports some seriously delicious plum, blackberry and boysenberry fruit flavors, inlaid with ample brambly grip and backed by lively anise and ...Read More »

2015 Domaine de Cristia "Renaissance" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Wine Spectator: "This has an intense core of crushed plum, raspberry and boysenberry fruit flavors, draped with melted licorice notes and backed by a wave of warm fruitcake. Hedonistic for sure, but accents of anise, violet and singed apple wood dart around, adding extra facets of intrigue to hold your attention. Grenache and Mourvèdre. Best from 2020 through 2040." (9/2017) 95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Renaissance is a gem and as always is a 60/40 split of Grenache and Mourvèdre brought up in demi-muids and smaller barrels (one-third new). Blackcurrants, blackberries, win ...Read More »

2015 Ferraton Pere et Fils "Lieu Dit Saint Joseph" St. Joseph (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I had a few expletives in my notes for the 2015 St Joseph Lieu Dit St Joseph and like many of these 2015s, it’s easily the best example of the cuvée to date. This sensational, inky-colored beauty offers of a huge bouquet of incense, blueberries, cassis, black powder and graphite. It’s full-bodied, concentrated and ripe, with building tannin and a blockbuster finish. Aged all in 15% new barrels, do your best to give bottles 2-4 years of bottle age. The quality (and number of cuvées) from this estate continues to soar, and this is easily the finest line ...Read More »

1990 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Seamless, silky and just drinking perfectly. I don’t think the 1990 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape is going to fade anytime soon but I’d drink them if you have them and I can’t imagine this getting better." (7/2008) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Two great back to back vintages are the 1990 and 1989. The more developed 1990 boasts an incredible perfume of hickory wood, coffee, smoked meat, Asian spices, black cherries, and blackberries. Lush, opulent, and full-bodied, it is a fully mature, profound Beaucastel... (RP)" (1/2003) 95 points Decanter: "A clear red now, like its peers. There are raisins ...Read More »

2016 Domaine La Roquete "Clos" Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Wine Spectator: "Broad and ripe, with a gorgeous creamy texture to the melon, fig, pear and yellow apple fruit flavors, all inlaid liberally with heather, singed almond and sweetened butter notes. A light stony spine gives this just enough support, letting the flattering flavors play out beautifully through the finish. Grenache Blanc, Clairette and Roussanne. Drink now through 2019."

2015 Ferraton Père et Fils "Les Calendes" Crozes-Hermitage (Pre-Arrival)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even better than the La Matiniere cuvée, the 2015 Crozes Hermitage Les Calendes (100% Syrah, destemmed and aged in concrete) offers lots of graphite and minerality, as well as full-bodied richness, a thick, unctuous texture, present tannin and a great finish. Again, the value here is about as good as it gets. At the moment, all of the Crozes Hermitage releases share a lot of similarities, but I’m sure they’ll show more singular characters with additional time in barrel. The quality (and number of cuvées) from this estate continues to soar, and this is ...Read More »

2015 Domaine de la Mordorée "La Reine des Bois" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the more polished, seamless and sexy vintages of this cuvée I can remember, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée de la Reine des Bois sports a deep ruby/purple color to go with fabulous notes of black raspberries, graphite, creamy licorice, garrigue and sappy flowers. Full-bodied, silky, impeccably balanced and with impressive tannic grip and length, which builds with time in the glass, this sensational 2015 will be reasonably approachable by this estate's standards, yet have 15-20 years of prime drinking. Since the untimely death of Christophe D ...Read More »

2015 Domaine La Bastide Saint Dominique "Les Hesperides" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Like the 2016, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Hesperides is an even split of Grenache and Mourvèdre, from the les Bedines lieu-dit (100% sandy soils), that was completely destemmed and brought up mostly in stainless steel, with 20% in demi-muids. It’s a brilliant wine that offers lots of meaty, spice, licorice nuances, tons of blackberry and black raspberry fruit, full-bodied richness, sweet tannin and a blockbuster finish. It’s up with the crème de la crème of the vintage and will keep for two decades. (JebDunnuck.com)" (10/2017) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "All of the special cuvé ...Read More »

2015 Château de Saint Cosme "Valbelle" Gigondas (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Incorporating 10% Syrah, the Grenache-dominated 2015 Gigondas Cuvee Valbelle is another heavenly wine from Louis Barruol. Full-bodied, seamless and elegant, with lots of crème de cassis, crushed flowers, incense and white pepper, it has a touch less mid-palate depth than the single vineyards, but is impeccably balanced and will have two decades of longevity. Unquestionably one of the reference point estates, not only for Gigondas, but for the entire Southern Rhône, Louis Barruol’s Chateau de Saint Cosme lies just outside the village and covers 25 hect ...Read More »

2007 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Chateau Beaucastel (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A straight up, phenomenal wine, this bottle of 2007 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape was double decanted (poured into a decanter and then back into the bottle) 12 hours prior to drinking and boasted gorgeous aromatics (blackberry, cassis, lavender, garrigue and roasted meat), full bodied power, serious concentration and unreal purity. Very polished and almost civilized by Beaucastel standards, this beauty should drink beautifully for 3 decades. Wow.
