2009 Domaine de la Mordorée "Reine des Bois" Chateauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blockbuster-styled effort, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de La Reine des Bois doesn’t pull any punches and gives up rocking aromas and flavors of black raspberry, cassis, graphite, spice-box, lavender and herbs. Possessing full-bodied richness, sweet tannin and thrilling purity, it can be enjoyed now for its exuberant character, but will also evolve gracefully going forward. As I wrote in the intro for this domaine last year, Domaine de la Mordoree is a reference point estate for Chateauneuf du Pape. Run by the talented brother duo of Fabrice and ...Read More »

2009 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Wine Spectator: "Sinewy and reserved, with a light dusting of cocoa powder over the tangy damson plum, red licorice and cassis notes. 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. One of the more backward 2009s, though this should pick up steam in the cellar. (JM)" (11/2011) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Considered by Paul-Vincent to be a hypothetical blend of the '05 and the '07, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape was showing its Mourvedre component on this occasion and had lots of kirsch, ...Read More »

2009 Paul Jaboulet Aîné "La Chapelle" Hermitage

98 points James Suckling: "Lots of ripe fruit in this, with plum and blackberry character. Very floral and fresh with citrus undertones, dried meats and smoke. Full body with an incredible texture of ultra-fine tannins, and length and beauty. This is like the unrated, incredible 1959. Incredible harmony and beauty. I am speechless. Drink or hold. This will be wonderful for ever." (12/2014) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As I wrote last year, the 2009 Hermitage La Chapelle is easily the greatest, most profound La Chapelle since the 1990. Most of this cuvee comes from Le Meal and Les Bessards vineyards, with a touc ...Read More »

2009 Château Beaucastel Roussanne Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes Blanc

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Vieilles Vignes (Roussanne) is a staggering wine of extraordinary complexity and richness. Aromas of rose petals, exotic fruits such as mango and nectarine intermixed with peach marmalade, honeysuckle and crushed pineapple emerge from this full-bodied white along with good acidity and lavish amounts of fruit and glycerin. It offers a nearly out of body wine tasting experience.

2009 Domaine de Marcoux Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Just a touch darker in color than the traditional cuvee, the blockbuster 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a big, full-bodied and concentrated beauty that's overflowing with Provencal notes of cured meats, garrigue, licorice, black cherries and crushed rock. Thick and unctuous on the palate, it has put on weight since release, and the tannin is also sweeter and more polished, all suggesting it will have a long life. This is a gorgeous Chateauneuf du Pape! 97+ Points (JD)" (10/2016) 96 points Wine Spectator: "Offers a deep, dark well of lush plum cake, hoisin sauce, roasted ...Read More »

2009 M. Chapoutier "Vin de Paille" Ermitage (375ml)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are two wines readers should keep an eye out for, even though they are very limited in availability (just under 300 cases of each). Both are potentially immortal offerings. The 2009 Ermitage Vin de Paille and 2010 Ermitage Vin de Paille are both made from the l’Ermite lieu-dit. Both possess deep gold colors as well as off-the-chart levels of residual sugar, acidity and concentration. These massive, unctuously textured, phenomenally great sweet dessert wines have incredible precision as well as intensity. Available only in half bottles, these connoi ...Read More »

2009 Clos Saint-Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Similar in style to the 2011, yet with additional richness, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes boasts knockout aromas and flavors of blackberry liqueur, orange rind, sweet spice and crushed flowers to go with a full-bodied, rich, layered and sexy feel on the palate. A gorgeous effort that's hard to resist now, it will nevertheless have 15 years or more of evolution. (JD)" (8/2014) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Ripe blackberry and cherry on the nose, with dark chocolate and licorice adding complexity. Deep, spice-accented cherry liqueur and bitter chocolate flavo ...Read More »

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

95-96 points Vinous: "Deep ruby. Seductive scents of ripe blackberry and boysenberry, singed plum and star anise, lifted by an intense floral topnote. Sweet, expansive dark fruit flavors show excellent concentration, with suggestions of licorice pastille and orange pith giving the wine an exotic character. Shows outstanding clarity and power on the extremely long finish, which is shaped by smooth, slow-building tannins. (JR)" (4/2015) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted from bottle include the 2009 Châteauneuf du Pape Reserve des Célestins, which was purchased stateside.

2009 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Wine Spectator: "This captures terrific ripeness, intensity and density with stunning mouthfeel, as layer upon layer of fig sauce, braised plum, cassis, cherry eau de vie and pastis glide along together, with notes of spice, ganache and graphite hanging in reserve. The very long finish has cut and precision, despite its weight. Should age effortlessly. Best from 2014 through 2035. (JM)" (6/2012) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Starting with the 2009, it is a beautiful Chateauneuf du Pape that shows surprising elegance and polish in the vintage.

2009 Pierre Usseglio "Reserve des Deux Freres" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Vinous: "Bright violet color. Wildly complex scents of black raspberry, cherry compote, sassafras, allspice and licorice. Lush and palate-staining, with noteworthy intensity to its open-knit dark berry, spicecake and floral pastille flavors. Silky tannins come on late and meld smoothly with the deep, sappy fruit, which refuses to let go of the palate. I underestimated this powerful, vibrant wine last year. (JR)" (1/2012) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve des Deux Freres is probably the softest, most forward and evolved wine the Usseglios have made under this des ...Read More »

2009 Domaine Clos du Caillou "Reserve" Chateauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More open and ready to go, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Le Clos du Caillou is a perfumed, sexy wine that thrills with its cassis, candied licorice, violets, flowers and spice. Surprisingly up front and open, yet with smoking purity of fruit and fine tannin, it can be enjoyed anytime over the coming 10-15 years.

Pungent, assertive aromas of candied red fruits, cola, incense and potpourri, with a hint of vanilla in the background. Stains the palate with deep raspberry and cherry flavors ...Read More »

2009 Clos du Mont Olivet "Cuvée du Papet" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Needing more patience, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Papet (75% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre and the balance Syrah aged in foudre) comes from the estate’s oldest vines planted in such famous sites as Mont Olivet and Bois Dauphin. Usually about 1,000 cases are produced and the 2009, which tops the scales at 15.5% alcohol, is brilliant. A gorgeously aromatic bouquet of dark fruits, kirsch, underbrush, raspberries, licorice, spice box and pepper soars from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-tinged wine. Opulent and voluptuously textured with moderate tan ...Read More »
