2015 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape is a classic blend of 75% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault, mostly from rolled stone terroirs, that was partially destemmed and will see 15 months all in foudre. It boasts a deep ruby/purple color as well as full-bodied richness, sweet tannin and textbook Southern Rhône notes of cured meats, toasted spice, garrigue and ample red and black fruits. It will have two decades or more of prime drinking. Along with a small handful of other estates, I consider Claire Michel’s le Vieux Donjon at the top of the hea ...Read More »

2015 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc (Elsewhere $36)

93 points Wine Spectator: "Intense, with bitter almond, citrus oil, white peach, nectarine and ginger notes tightly coiled together and driving through the anise- and wet stone-accented finish. (JM, Web-2016)" 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from equal parts Bourboulenc, Clairette, Grenache Blanc and Roussanne, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc is a beauty! Medium-bodied, fresh, elegant and nicely balanced, it sports a very light color, yet has impressive intensity in its crisp peach, spice and mint aromas and flavors.

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 Chante Cigale "L'Apostrophe" Mediterranée Top Pick!
2015 Chante Cigale "L'Apostrophe" Mediterranée

Chante Cigale means singing cicada (a type of grasshopper/cricket). The property has been in the family since the 19th century and is currently run by Alexandre Favier who assumed the reins at the ripe old age of 20. The domaine is planted to 40 ha of red and 5 ha of white on 45 different parcels throughout the appellation. L'Apostrophe is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah grown in Travaillan, about 15 km from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This is a fresh and fruity everyday sipper to drink early and often.

I’m not sure I agree, but there’s no denying the quality in this 2014. Sporting a deep ruby color and terrific notes of blackberries, ground herbs, pepper and Provençal s pice, it shows the more forward, charming nature of the vintage and is medium to full-bodied, pure and balanced.

2015 Clos Saint Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape offers tons of black cherries, dried herbs, graphite and licorice to go with sweet tannin, medium to full-bodied richness and no hard edges. The two Maurel brothers, along with the ever-present Philippe Cambie, have brought this large estate up to the pinnacle of the Châteauneuf du Pape hierarchy, and they’ve produced so many monumental bottles over the past decade or so it’s not even funny.

2015 M. Chapoutier "Croix de Bois" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Croix de Bois possesses a more fruit forward and exuberant character compared to the Barbe Rac and dishes out tons of blackberry, blueberry, raspberry, violets and spice characteristics. Beautifully pure and fresh on the palate, with full-bodied richness, building, sweet tannin and blockbuster length, I wouldn’t be surprised to see this be the best vintage for this cuvée to date.

I suspect this beauty will close down relatively quickly after bottling and take 5-6 years to show at its best, but it will drink well for 15+ years.

Aged in foudre and demi-muids, it offers textbook notes of black raspberries, kirsch, garrigue, pepper and leafy herbs, as well as full-bodied richness, ripe, polished tannin and a great finish.

The Grenache and Mourvèdre were the clear standouts, both possessing terrific concentration, purity of fruit and ripe tannic structure.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Chaupin, which I was able to taste (and drink) from multiple bottles, is a beautiful Grenache that comes from the cooler, northeastern edge of the appellation. Coming almost all from the Chapouin lieu-dit (it gets a small bit from La Janasse), it gives up the classic notes of black berries, spring flowers, violets, and licorice that I always seem to find in this cuvee.

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2001 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (96RP, 95VN, 94ST, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Also brilliant, the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reserve is full-bodied and concentrated, with classic Pegau wildness, beef blood, saddle leather and garrigue all emerging from the glass. Slightly lighter in color and weight when compared to the 2003, it’s showing some maturity and can be consumed anytime, but will without a doubt continue to evolve gracefully for another decade or more.

2006 Clos Saint Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From an under-the-radar vintage, the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape is another full-bodied, layered and beautifully rich wine from this estate. Up-front, perfumed (kirsch and assorted red fruits, leather, wild flowers), concentrated and layered, it-s drinking nicely now and will continue to do so for at least another 5-7 years. (JD)" (8/2014) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Fresh red and dark berry aromas are complemented by cracked pepper and pungent herbs. Sweet raspberry and kirsch flavors are braced by zesty acidity and framed by gentle tannins. The finish is nicely focused and t ...Read More »

2015 Domaine de la Mordorée "La Reine des Bois" Châteauneuf-du-Pape(1.5L) (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 Grand Veneur Chateauneuf-du-Pape "Le Miocene" (Pre-Arrival)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Le Miocène is a classic blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre that offers terrific notes of black raspberries, blueberries, violets, pepper and garrigue. It’s a medium to full-bodied, rounded, low acid and sexy beauty to drink on release and over the following 7-8 years. The two special cuvées both see aging in barrels, and I think the estate is doing a better job today with the oak integration than in the past. (JD)" (10/2016)

2012 Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes (Previously $110)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Up in the top handful of wines in the vintage (which should come as no surprise to anyone who follows this estate), the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, rich and layered Châteauneuf that doesn’t put a foot wrong. Made from 85% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre and the rest Syrah, it offers blockbuster notes of blackberry, liquid-violets, spice and serious minerality to go with awesome mid-palate depth and layers of sweet tannin. Like the Cuvee Chaupin, it will be better in another handful of years and thrill thro ...Read More »

2007 Domaine de Ferrand Châteauneuf-du-Pape

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the wines of the vintage is the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape from Philippe Bravey, and I’ve drunk more than a case of this wine and have consistently rated it at the upper end of the spectrum (however, some bottles suffer from too much volatile acidity). Big, full-bodied, layered and unctuous, it has a huge nose of garrigue, black fruits, saddle leather and licorice. I absolutely love this wine and would happily drink bottles over the coming decade. (JD)" (2/2017) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Expressive aromas of raspberry, cherry, blood orange and dried flowers, with ...Read More »

2015 Château Beaucastel Roussanne Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Vieilles Vignes (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even better than the Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc, the richer, more concentrated 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Roussanne Vieilles Vignes comes from a single parcel of vines located beside the Chateau that were planted in 1909. Full-bodied, rich, gorgeously concentrated and textured, with fabulous notes of orange blossom, buttered citrus, marmalade and honey, it will be up with the crème de la crème of the vintage. It’s worth noting that since 2009, the estate has changed the viticulture with regards to their whites, moving to slightly larger yields, with the goa ...Read More »

2012 Bosquet des Papes "Chante le Merle Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A remarkable effort, the blockbuster 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Chante le Merle Vieilles Vignes comes close to the 2010 in terms of quality. Coming from a selection of the top plots and old vines of the estate, co-fermented, and with no destemming, it offers off-the-charts notes of cassis, chocolate-covered cherries, garrigue, licorice and toasted spice. Possessing massive richness and depth, with tons of glycerin, texture and length, it stays remarkably elegant, balanced and pure on the palate, with building tannin and yet no hard edges. This knockout Châ ...Read More »

2006 Roger Sabon "Prestige" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dense ruby/purple-colored, full-bodied 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige offers up notes of licorice, kirsch liqueur, lavender, and spice box. (RP)" (10/2008) 93 points Wine Spectator: "This is very alluring, with warm raspberry confiture gliding over incense, spice bread and fig sauce notes. The long, silky finish has nice dark licorice and black tea notes. Fine-grained and persistent. Drink now through 2028." (10/2008) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Expressive aromas of dark cherry, blackcurrant, Indian spices and smoky herbs. Round, supple dark fruit flavors coat the palate, sweetened by suav ...Read More »

2005 Domaine Préfert "Collection Charles Giraud" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the strongest wines in the vintage, Ferrando’s 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape Collection Charles Giraud continues to show brilliantly, and has rated in the upper 90s every time I’ve had it in the past 2-3 years. Made from 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre that comes from a small plot in the Serres lieu-dit and a small part of the Cristia lieu-dit, it offers a beefy, meaty array of dark fruits, cured meats, chocolate and tapenade to go with a full-bodied, powerful, chewy style on the palate. It’s a big, full-flavored Châteauneuf du Pape that will continue t ...Read More »

2003 Domaine Bois de Boursan "Cuvée des Félix" Chateauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Domaine Bois de Boursan Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Felix is superb. Showing a mature, yet still lively and fruit-driven profile of sweet currants, saddle leather, truffle, and garrigue, it stays beautifully rich and seductive on the palate, with layers of sweet fruit, no hard edges and a great finish. Certainly a ripe vintage, yet everything is perfectly proportioned, the tannins are sweet and it is a joy to drink. A blend of 65% Grenache and the balance a mix of Mourvedre and Syrah, from 90-year-old vines, it held up beautifully with air and ...Read More »

2007 Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2007 Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Vieux Telegraphe may be the greatest wine made at this property since the 2005 and 1998. Dense ruby/purple-tinged with an exquisite nose of salty sea breezes, licorice, ground pepper, jammy black cherries, black currants, figs, and plums, this is a full-bodied, rich, Provencal-styled offering with lots of sweet, ripe tannin. It is surprisingly accessible for a Vieux Telegraphe (this wine normally shuts down several years after bottling), but it should have great longevity (25+ years) given its power, full-bodied mouthfeel, and enormous length an ...Read More »
