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

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. So seductive already, but this will cruise in the cellar. Drink now through 2040." (8/2017) 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 swe ...Read More »

2015 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Réservée is beauty, and about as classic an expression of this estate as I can recall. Blackcurrants, peppery herbs, roasted meats and garrigue all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, balanced, nicely concentrated 2015 that has ripe tannin and a great finish. It’s not on par with the 2010, 2009 or 2003, but it should surpass the 2012 and have two decades or more of longevity. When it comes to traditional Châteauneuf du Pape, no one does it better than Domaine du Pégaü’s Laurence and her father Paul Feraud. This e ...Read More »

2015 Le Clos du Caillou "Les Quartz" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

97 points Wine Spectator: "A total stunner, with a long, pure beam of raspberry and red currant coulis streaming through, flanked by light violet, iron and incense notes before picking up lilting rooibos tea and rose petal accents on the finish. The fruit never fades, and there’s perfectly embedded acidity weaving everything together. A dreamy wine. (JM)" (9/2017) 94 points James Suckling: "Very attractive dark plum and blackberry fruit on the nose. Old vine grenache is working powerful and commanding style into this wine. The palate has sweeping tannins that carve deep channels of red fruit flavor. Warm fini ...Read More »

2015 Le Clos du Caillou "La Réserve" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The crème of the lineup and made from the normal blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre, aged in 20% new demi-muids, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape La Reserve is a full-bodied, polished and elegant example of this cuvée that offers lots of toasted spices, black raspberry and cassis fruit, beautifully ripe tannin and a great finish. I’d like to see a touch more mid-palate depth and concentration, but this is flat out gorgeous nonetheless.

2010 E. Guigal Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Rich, textured and medium to full-bodied, with ample black cherry, olive tapenade and subtle meatiness, this traditional effort stays pure and lively, with fine tannin emerging on the finish.

2010 Domaine des Sénéchaux Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from an identical blend, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape is a hedonistic Chateauneuf du Pape fruit bomb. Super-rich with layers of glycerin and fruit, this full-bodied classic smells like a Provencal open-air fruit and vegetable market. Loaded with slightly blacker fruits than its 2011 counterpart, there are also hints of charcuterie, spice box, cedar and Christmas fruitcake in this full-throttle, rich, concentrated wine. Drink it over the next 12-15+ years. This nearly 65-acre estate is owned by the famous and much loved Bordeaux proprietor, Jean-Mi ...Read More »

2014 Baron de Montfaucon Châteauneuf-du-Pape

One of our most popular direct imports, the price-to-quality ratio we've found in these wines year after year is simply unbeatable. Our customers have come to rely on this family-run winery to provide great quality, drinkability and value. The 2014 is the first vintage of Chateauneuf du Pape produced by Montfaucon.

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape is a beautiful wine in the vintage, and Marc compares it to the 2012. 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.

Made from a blend of mostly Grenache, with Syrah and Mourvedre that was brought up in foudre, barrels and concrete, it’s a fruit-filled, medium to full-bodied, seamless and beautifully Provencal effort to drink over the coming decade.

97 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and focused, with a delightful mix of cassis, blood orange and cherry coulis flavors streaming through, backed by black tea and apple wood accents. Finely beaded acidity lets the fruit stretch out, while a light mineral edge adds range. Shows an echo of licorice snap at the very end. Dense, but there’s remarkable grace here. (JM)" (7/2017) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Vieilles Vignes checks in as 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and the rest Mourvèdre and Cinsault, with 30% whole cluster.

2015 Chateau de Vaudieu Chateauneuf-du-Pape "Amiral G"

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Amiral G. comes from a single parcel and is a huge wine that I suspect will be in the top one to two wines of the vintage. Giving up awesome notes of Provençal garrigue, strawberry jam, kirsch, incense and peppered meats, it has full-bodied richness, a broad, expansive feel on the palate and sweet tannin. I don’t think it has the density and structure of the 2010 (which is a monumental wine!), but this is a tour de force in Grenache that Châteauneuf du Pape lovers shouldn’t miss!

Fleshy and broad on entry and then tighter in the middle, offering juicy, concentrated black raspberry and boysenberry flavors given spine by juicy acidity.

Lush, fat and full in the mouth, with superb concentration and richness. A seamless wine with great Chateauneuf du Pape character. Complicating notes of tar and chocolate. Finishes with dusty, broad tannins and great persistence. This can be enjoyed now with the right dishes but should age gracefully."

2009 Lucien & Andre Brunel "Les Cailloux" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "The 2009 Les Cailloux is a classically built Châteauneuf that should age well through at least 2025. The blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 12% Syrah and 3% Cinsault starts off with lovely notes of wild thyme and dark fruit, then adds herbal complexity and chocolaty richness. It's full bodied yet firm, with some dusty but elegant tannins on the finish.

2014 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Wine Spectator: "A gutsy style, with a frame of brick dust around a core of steeped cherry, plum and blackberry fruit. The back end pulls in dried sage, savory and tobacco notes. The finish lingers over a singed chestnut hint. Rock-solid and unabashedly old-school. Best from 2020 through 2030. (JM)" (5/2017) 91 points James Suckling: "A wild, rustic edge to this assertive and punchy fruit-driven Châteauneuf-du-Pape. A smooth black cherry and blood plum-flavored palate. Appealing tangy freshness to close. The rusticity denotes drink now or as a much older wine." (8/2017) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As to the 2014 Châteauneuf du P ...Read More »

2007 Domaine de Cristia Châteauneuf-du-Pape

A terrific base cuvée that has loads to love, it offers lots of black cherries, blackcurrants, peppery herbs and licorice in a medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated style.

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.

The long, supple finish, with a lovely wafting note of Lapsang souchong tea, is packed with minerality and tight-grained tannins that will need time to fully evolve.

2015 Domaine Durieu "Lucile Avril" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Domaine Durieu "Lucile Avril" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

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.

2012 Domaine Olivier Hillaire Châteauneuf-du-Pape

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the top classic cuvées, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape (90% Grenache and 10% Syrah aged in a combination of different sized barrels) is medium to full-bodied, layered and downright sexy, with loads of sweet kirsch, blackberry, ground herbs and truffle. Already hard to resist, drink bottles over the coming 7-8 years. (JD)" (10/2014) 90 points Vinous: "Opaque ruby.

2013 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes (Previously $50)

92 points Vinous: "Bright ruby. Assertively perfumed aromas of fresh black and blue fruits, spicecake and garrigue, and suggestions of cola and woodsmoke. Sappy and seamless on the palate, offering deeply concentrated boysenberry, black raspberry and floral pastille flavors that become spicier and more energetic with air. Supple tannins build on the tenacious finish, which shows outstanding clarity and resonating spiciness.

2012 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Laurence" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Wine Spectator: "A throwback style and proud of it, with warm chestnut and bay leaf notes taking the lead, followed quickly by worn leather and smoldering tobacco accents. The core of dark currant, warmed cherry and mulled blackberry lies in reserve for now, while the finish lets singed iron and brick dust details hold sway. Just wait for everything to pull together in the cellar. Best from 2020 through 2032. (JM)" (3/2017) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Pegau's Cuvée Laurence is aged in wood for longer than the Cuvée Resérvée, but is otherwise nearly identical. The 2012 version is full-bodied, dense an ...Read More »

2010 Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (375ml)

96 points Rhone Report: "As good, if not better, than the stunning ’07, the 2010 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Crau is a knockout effort that will delight traditional Châteauneuf-du-Pape lovers. It’s ruby/semi-opaque color is followed by a sumptuous, savory bouquet of ground pepper, rolled stone and oyster shell like minerality, seaweed, and garrigue that’s anchored by a vibrant core of sweet red fruits. Full-bodied, textured, fresh, and with chewy, ripe tannin on the finish, this will not be a wine for instant gratification and needs a solid 5-6 years of bo ...Read More »

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.

A flash of shiso leaf adds life and cut to the finish, while the fruit streams through. Best from 2018 through 2030."

2012 Domaine de la Janasse "Chaupin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $65)

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 Domaine Grand Veneur "Les Origines" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Les Origines (50% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre and 20% Syrah aged in a mix of concrete tanks and small barrels) has fabulous notes of crème de cassis, blackberry jam, roasted herbs and graphite. Full-bodied, ultra-pure and with incredibly polished tannin, it’s up with some of the best vintage of this cuvée to date. It will need 2-3 years of cellaring and have two decades of longevity. This sensational estate consistently produces some of the top whites of the appellation (in addition to the reds), and they’ve done well in 2015. ...Read More »
