2015 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

97 points James Suckling: "All 13 grapes. This has a dark fruited, blueberry and blue plum nose with wide swinging tannins. 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.

2015 Domaine de la Charbonnière Châteauneuf-du-Pape "Les Hautes Brusquieres - Cuvèe Speciale" (Pre-Arrival)

96 points James Suckling: "A masterpiece of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The fruit power leads this wine and lends that effortless sense of power and length that only old vines can muster. Oak adds spice but the blood plum and dark cherry fruits take center stage here. Best from 2020." (8/2017) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "My favorite of the multiple cuvées was the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Hautes Brusquieres Cuvee Speciale.

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

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I loved the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape from Claire Michel and it’s a classic blend of 75% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault, mostly from rolled stone terroirs, that was partially destemmed and brought up all in foudre. 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.

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Coming from an old vine selection and a smaller production release for the US market, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes tastes like the classic cuvée, only on steroids. Kirsch, loads of black and blue fruits, flowers and lavender notes all emerge from this full-bodied 2015 that has fine, fine tannin, solid mid-palate depth and a great finish. It certainly offers pleasure today, yet will keep for 10-15 years.

As is normal I was able to taste through numerous foudre of different blends, as well as a foudre of the final blend, all of the samples showed distinct, rich, even opulent profile, terrific purity and ripe backbones.

2015 Roger Sabon "Réserve" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

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. (JD)" (10/2016) 91-93 points Vinous: "Vibrant ruby. Energetic red and dark berry aromas are complemented by suggestions of candied flowers, licorice and incense. J ...Read More »

2015 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I loved the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape from Claire Michel and it’s a classic blend of 75% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault, mostly from rolled stone terroirs, that was partially destemmed and brought up all in foudre. 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. This gorgeous example ...Read More »

2015 Domaine Durieu "Lucile Avril" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I loved the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Lucille Avril, and I’ve bought and cellared this cuvée for years (the 2007 is killer juice). Big, structured and tannic, yet with sensational purity and classic notes of blackberries, raspberries, roasted meats and roasted herbs, it expands on the palate, is impeccably balanced and will be an age-worthy Châteauneuf du Pape. I’ve had numerous splendid bottles from this estate over the past decade and I continue to love the wines from the young Vincent Durieu. (JD)" (10/2016) 91-92 points Vinous: "made with whole clusters and aged in concre ...Read More »

2015 Bosquet des Papes "A la Gloire de Mon Grand-Père" Châteauneuf-du-Papes

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Made from mostly Grenache, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape A La Gloire de Mon Grand-Père is another beauty that's up with the crème de las crème of the vintage. Kirsch, strawberries, dried flowers and spice notes give way to a full-bodied, supple, sexy red that has sweet tannin and a great finish. While it's a big, rich wine, it glides across the palate and is never heavy. It should keep for 10-15 years. This estate is managed by the larger than life Nicolas Boiron and his wines span the gauntlet from very traditional and old-school (Chante le Merle) to pol ...Read More »

2005 Roger Sabon "Prestige" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

93+ Robert Parker. "The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige is a classic. Full-bodied, powerful, dense, with a complete personality, it exhibits terrific peppery, licorice-infused, black currant and kirsch-like fruit, a broad, savory, expansive mouthfeel, and a powerful, long finish with sweet but not very noticeable tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025." (Drink: 2012 - 2025. Wine Advocate # 173 October 2007)

2015 Domaine Charvin Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points James Suckling: "Astounding purity and depth. This wine emanates old vine concentration with deep raspberry and red plums, spicy complexity and a sappy, bracken-like edge. Powerful and elegant tannins, reminiscent of great Barolo! Drink from 2023." (8/2017) 94-96 points Vinous: "Lurid ruby-red. Sexy, highly perfumed raspberry, boysenberry and floral pastille scents are complemented by hints of musky rhubarb and Asian spices. Palate-staining sweet red and blue fruit and spicecake flavors show power as well as superb vivacity thanks to a spine of juicy acidity. The floral quality comes back empha ...Read More »

2016 Le Clos du Caillou "Reserve le Clos du Caillou" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

96-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Possessing a more discrete, nuanced style than the blockbuster-styled Cuvée Quarts, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Reserve reveals a deep ruby color as well as more focused, pure notes of blackcurrants, graphite, crushed rock and mineral nuances. Just gorgeously pure, seamless, impeccably balanced and with a finish that won’t quit, give this power-packed, concentrated 2016 4-5 years of bottle age and enjoy over the following two decades.

2009 Domaine Pierre Usseglio "Mon Aïeul" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another wine that got better and better over the evening was the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul. I've drunk through my fair share of bottles of this over the past few years. It has never shut down and has always shown well. A ripe, forward and sexy wine, it has lots of kirsch, garrigue, exotic spice and floral notes to go with a ripe, concentrated feel on the palate. It certainly has the vintage's Provencal character and is an exuberant, hedonistic Grenache to enjoy over the coming 10-12 years. (JD)" (9/2015) 93 points Vinous: "Full ruby. Intense black raspberry ...Read More »

2014 Le Clos du Caillou "La Réserve" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $110)

93-95 points Vinous: "Dark ruby. Potent, mineral-accented blueberry, cherry compote and licorice aromas are complicated by suave floral and Asian spice qualities, picking up a cola note with air. Seamless, round and alluringly sweet, offering intense red and blue fruit preserve and floral pastille flavors and a touch of five-spice powder. Finishes sappy and extremely long, displaying velvety tannins and a late jolt of dark berry liqueur. (JR)" (4/2016) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A candidate for the wine of the vintage, the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape La Reserve is the classic 60/40 split of Grenache and Mou ...Read More »

2016 Domaine Grand Veneur Chateauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes(1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes is sensational, with notes of blackberry jam, blueberries, crushed flowers, licorice, and graphite all soaring from the glass. Deep, rich, unctuous and still structured, with masses of tannin, it's a beast of a wine, yet stays impeccably balanced, pure and clean. It's going to need 4-5 years of cellaring. 97-99+" (10/2017) 95 points Decanter: "A remarkable combination of freshness, concentration and lightness of touch. Very long, with vivid aromatics and lovely balance. It's hard to fault really, but is painfully young at this stage ...Read More »

2010 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (375ml)

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Showing consistently with the barrel review, the 2010 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (30% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, 10% Counoise, and the remainder an assortment of varieties) is a classic Beaucastel that has both richness and elegance. Showing loads of black cherry, new leather, licorice, pepper, and hints of flowers on the nose, this full-bodied, structured, yet surprisingly elegant and polished 2010 has fantastic purity of fruit, superb balance, and knockout length. Showing more and more structure with air, this needs 3-5 years of ...Read More »
