91 points Wine Spectator: "#43 Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2016!! Ripe, with vivid blueberry and boysenberry fruit, harnessed on the back end by a bold graphite edge.

2014 Vincent Paris "Granit 60" Cornas Vieilles Vignes

91-93 points Vinous: "Bright violet. Heady, smoke-accented black and blue fruit and floral pastille scents show excellent focus and a peppery spice accent. Sappy, penetrating and gently sweet, offering intense black currant and boysenberry flavors that tighten up and become spicier with air. Densely packed but lithe, finishing with powerful thrust and silky, slow-building tannins. I really like the blend of richness and vivacity here. (JR)" (3/2016) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Similar in style to the Granit 30, yet with additional structure, the 2014 Cornas Granit 60 Vielles Vignes comes from older vines ...Read More »

2012 Domaine de la Janasse "Chaupin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

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. Building nicely on the palate, it is medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured, has tons of sweet fruit and solid, if not firm, tannin that come out on ...Read More »

2015 M. Chapoutier "Les Granits" St-Joseph Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A wine I’ve always loved, the 2015 St Joseph Les Granits Blanc is, I suspect, the greatest white to ever come from this appellation. Made from 100% Marsanne all from the St Joseph lieu-dit, aged 80% in demi-muids (15% new) and the rest in stainless steel, this sensational white offers loads of minerality in addition to citrus blossom, buttered hazelnuts, toasted bread and hints of orchard fruits. It needs a year or two of bottle age, but is an incredible white. Bravo to the team at Chapoutier for this effort." (12/2016) Wine Spectator: "The 2015 St-Joseph White Les Granits ...Read More »

2015 Roger Sabon "Réserve" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Réserve comes from two terroirs: la Crau and la Grenade. It’s aged 60% in foudre and the rest in larger oak tanks. Elegant, medium to full-bodied, with ripe tannic structure, it has lots of scorched earth, darker berry fruits, smoked herbs and licorice aromas and flavors. It’s not a massive wine, but it shines for its purity and length. Didier Negron has been the winemaker at this remarkable estate since 2001, and he’s yet to put a foot wrong. It’s important to realize t ...Read More »

2014 Vincent Paris "Granit 30" Cornas

90-92 points Vinous: "Inky ruby. Deep-pitched aromas of cherry compote, cassis, licorice and smoky herbs gain vivacity from a peppery overtone. Sappy and precise, showing strong mineral lift and energy to the sappy dark berry and licorice flavors. Closes smoky and very long, with a whiplash of juicy dark berries and slow-mounting tannins. (JR)" (3/2016) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Paris did well in 2014, and while the wines lack the density and depth of the 2015s, they have pure, classic and balanced characters. They’ll certainly be drinkable at an earlier age than his 2015s. The 2014 Cornas Granit 30 is ...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.

2013 Domaine des Remizières "Cuvée Christophe" Crozes-Hermitage

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Crozes Hermitage Cuvée Christophe should be in the same ballpark as the 2014 (which shows just how good the 2014 is, as 2014 is a much more difficult vintage for Crozes Hermitage). Possessing a touch of modern sheen in its graphite, black raspberry and crushed violet bouquet, this beauty hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, a tight, focused, yet gorgeously pure texture and good, maybe not great levels of concentration. It’s still a touch backwards and reticent, and my money is on it benefiting from a year or three in the cellar, and drin ...Read More »

2015 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is reminiscent of a slightly improved 2005 and has a fresh, classic style with beautiful concentration, notable freshness, first-rate tannin quality, and the classic spice and sweet red and black fruits this cuvee is known for. 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. (JD)" (10/2016) 94-96 points Vinous: "(raised in foudres) Deep ruby. Hugely aromatic red and dark berry, potpourri and floral scents are underscored by smoky minerality and an e ...Read More »

2005 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The most masculine and structured of the group, the 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape is locked and loaded, with serious concentration, big tannin and no shortage of length on the finish. Coming from a year that featured a cool summer and then scorching temps around harvest, this beauty doles out loads of creme de cassis, licorice, graphite and crushed rock-like minerality, as well as a seamless, perfectly balanced profile. Give it another 2-3 years and drink it through 2025. (JD)" (8/2014) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Showing beautifully, with intense fig, black currant and boysenberry fruit ...Read More »

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 »
