2009 E. Guigal "Brune et Blonde" Côte-Rôtie (Pre-Arrival, Previously $60)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Possessing additional richness, the 2009 Cote Rotie Brune et Blonde boasts rocking cassis, scorched earth and chocolate to go with more classic cured meats, mineral and violet-like nuances that emerge with time in the glass. Full-bodied, gorgeously pure, with a core of sweet fruit, it too will totally thrill over the coming decade or more. One of the reference point estates for top quality wines in the world today, the family run Guigal operation was created in 1946 by Etienne Guigal. Today, Etienne’s son, Marcel, and his son Philippe, are firmly in cont ...Read More »

2009 E. Guigal Hermitage (Pre-Arrival, Previously $65)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A big, massive and rich effort that needs to be forgotten for 4-5 years, the inky colored 2009 Hermitage reveals terrific aromatics of cassis, blackberry, smoked herbs, graphite and seared meats. Full-bodied, concentrated, locked and loaded, it's another 30+ year wine from this team that readers should purchase by the case. 93+ points. (JD)" (9/2015) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Features a slightly roasted frame, showing espresso and bittersweet cocoa notes, with a rock-solid core of dark plum, black currant and licorice flavors that flow through the grippy, tar- and loam-edged finish ...Read More »

2009 Domaine Charvin Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape (which tips the scales around 15% natural alcohol) is a great example of traditional Chateauneuf du Pape winemaking. A dense dark ruby color is followed by a sexy nose of raspberries, ground pepper, spice box, damp earth, kirsch and dark currants. Full-bodied, complex, elegant and already irresistible as the tannins have completely melted away, it can be drunk now and over the next 15+ years. (RP)" (1/2011) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ruby-red. Highly perfumed bouquet evokes candied red fruits, potpourri and allspice, with notes of licorice and white pep ...Read More »

2009 Domaine de Saint Prefert Collection "Charles Giraud" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Wine Spectator: "This gushes forth, with loads of plum, blackberry and cassis that saturate the palate, while apple wood, tobacco and perfumy incense keep everything fresh and alluring through the very lengthy finish, where a lively peppery hint leaves a mouthwatering feel. Best from 2013 through 2024." (10/2011) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "What I tend to think of as the top cuvee, although it is not that certain when you taste these wines next to each other, is the Chateauneuf du Pape Collection Charles Giraud. The 2009, which is showing better from bottle than it did last year, is a wonderfully com ...Read More »

2009 E. Guigal Hermitage

92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Hermitage possesses a dense purple color as well as lots of creme de cassis, camphor and acacia flowers. Deep, rich and full-bodied, this massive blockbuster will need a decade of cellaring after its release. (RP)" (12/2013) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Features a slightly roasted frame, showing espresso and bittersweet cocoa notes, with a rock-solid core of dark plum, black currant and licorice flavors that flow through the grippy, tar- and loam-edged finish. Reveals singed alder and bay accents in the background. Needs cellaring to settle into itself." (2/2015) Jancis Robinson: "Very dark. Spi ...Read More »

2009 Paul Autard "Cuvée Juline" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Wine Spectator: "A beauty, with lush, velvety structure wonderfully embedded in the dense, fleshy core of warm plum, fig compote, hoisin sauce and melted licorice snap notes. The finish is inlaid with spice and Lapsang souchong tea notes, with a flicker of anise as well. Not shy about its toast, but wonderfully integrated from start to finish. Best from 2013 through 2025." (10/2011) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque purple. Wild, exotically perfumed bouquet evokes black raspberry, cassis, apricot and incense, with a strong jolt of Asian spices. Lush, creamy and palate-coating, offering deep dark fru ...Read More »

2009 Henri Bonneau "Réserve des Célestins" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even better, the 2009 Châteauneuf du Pape Reserve des Célestins is similar to the Marie Beurrier, yet has additional concentration, mid-palate depth and sweet tannin. The balance here is superb, and it gains more and more structure with time in the glass. There’s plenty of similarities to the ’07 (and to a lesser extent, the 2011), and given this showing, it should have a broad drink window. I continue to be baffled by this estate, and given the cellar conditions, I've no idea how what comes out of these filthy barrels tastes so sweet and heavenly. (JD ...Read More »

2009 Château de Montfaucon Côtes du Rhône (1.5L)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cotes du Rhone (80% Grenache and 20% Cinsault) exhibits attractive notes of sweet strawberry and black cherry fruit intermixed with damp earth, herbs and pepper. It should drink well for 5-6 years." (10/2010) Wine Spectator: "Light but persistent, with a good juicy edge to the red currant, floral and red licorice notes that hang through the warm stone-tinged finish. Drink now." (10/2011) K&L Notes: 14% abv.

2009 Clos du Caillou "Les Quartz" Côtes du Rhône

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Intense red fruits on the nose and palate, with spicecake and mineral qualities adding complexity. Juicy and vibrant, with very good depth and clarity on the long, spice-accented finish. These vines lie within the Clos du Caillou, just outside the Chateauneuf border and next to the vines from which the estate's Chateauneuf du Pape Les Quartz is sourced. (85% grenache raised in foudres and 15% syrah raised in barriques). (JR)" (1/2012) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even better is the broader, deeper, richer, more complex and minerally 2009 Cotes du Rhone Les Quartz. Th ...Read More »

2009 Domaine Beaurenard "Cuvée Boisrenard" Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Bid on this bottle of 2009 Domaine Beaurenard "Cuvée Boisrenard" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (96WS, 93RP, 91ST). Wine Spectator: " *Highly Recommended* This powerful red offers a muscular core of roasted fig, blackberry and cassis fruit framed by thick, mesquite-tinged tannins, with loads of tobacco, pepper and tar coating the finish. Yet despite its power, this is racy and defined, with mouthwatering cut on the finish, where the mesquite note lingers. Ambitiously toasty, yet fully integrated. On par with the superb 2001 and 2005 vintages. Best from 2014 through 2024. " (10/2011)

2009 Domaine Grand Veneur "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The most limited cuvee (350 cases) is the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (a blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah from 50-100 year old vines located in the northern sector of the appellation). Its opaque purple color is accompanied by a gorgeous perfume of graphite, truffles, damp earth, cassis, kirsch, licorice and spice box. Despite the fact that it sees a lot of new oak, it reveals no evidence of wood. The fruit dominates in this quintessential, classic, full-bodied, powerful, massive as well as surprisingly pure and elegant Cha ...Read More »

2009 Roger Sabon "Secret de Sabon" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Similar to the 2011, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Le Secret du Sabon sports a big, full-bodied and mouthfilling profile to go with ripe blackberry, kirsch, flowers, licorice and earth-like aromas and flavors. Although showing incredibly well on release, and also at this tasting, I've had a few disappointing bottles of this from my cellar. Nevertheless, all of the wines have been fabulously concentrated and rich, so I suspect it just needs another year or two in the cellar. (JD)" (8/2014) 93-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Glass-staining ruby. A highly perfumed, seductive bouquet displays da ...Read More »

2009 Delas Freres "Les Bessards" Hermitage
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Delas Freres "Les Bessards" Hermitage (100RP, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Every bit as profound as the 2010, yet in a more voluptuous, lower acid, hedonistic style, the inky colored 2009 Hermitage les Bessards (aged all in new French oak) offers incredible intensity and depth in its black raspberry, toasted bread, graphite and spice-like aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, massively endowed and with a wealth of raw material, it has high, yet sweet tannin and a finish that just won't quit. Give it 4-5 years and drink it over the following 3-4 decades. Unfortunately, this is made in tiny quantities, but count yourself lucky if you were able to grab a few bottles of either the '09 or '10. (JD)" (09/2015)

2009 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Wine Spectator: "This is crammed with fruit, spice and structure, as braised fig, plum skin, cassis and anise notes wrestle with roasted apple wood, melted red licorice and tar for now. The embedded grip should carry the finish until this assimilates fully. Best from 2014 through 2024." (10/2011) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Intense red fruit and potpourri aromas show excellent precision and a suave, spicy character. Licorice and lavender nuances add complexity to juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors, with the wine putting on weight in the glass. Finishes taut and youthfully tangy ...Read More »

2009 Château de Beaucastel "Hommage a Jacques Perrin" Chateauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival) New!
2009 Château de Beaucastel "Hommage a Jacques Perrin" Chateauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Potentially the wine of the vintage, the 2009 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage a Jacques Perrin had just been bottled two weeks before my visit. A wine of extraordinary density, richness, precision and unreal flavor intensity, it reveals abundant gamey, meaty notes intermixed with smoked duck, Provencal herbs, blueberries, blackberries, kirsch and licorice. This loaded, multidimensional, massively concentrated 2009 is much softer than most Hommages. It should be drinkable in 3-4 years and keep for 30-40 years thereafter. Kudos to one of the world’s ...Read More »
