2009 Domaine Santa Duc "Grand Grenache 66" Gigondas

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The newest cuvee, the 2009 Grand Grenache 66 (16.2% alcohol) is a tiny cuvee bursting with kirsch liqueur, lavender, licorice and spice box. This is a stunning example of Grenache at its best, with wonderful freshness, and for Grenache afficionados, this is one to buy and drink over the next 15 or so years. 94-96+ (RP)" (10/2011) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Explosive scents of red fruit preserves, mocha, lavender oil, black cardamom and star anise. Plush, sweet and seamless, with expansive raspberry and cherry flavors and a touch of candied flowers. Wonderfully pure and ...Read More »

2009 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

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. Best from 2013 through 2025. (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 occ ...Read More »

2009 Château de Montfaucon "Baron Louis" Côtes du Rhône (1.5L)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Baron Louis Cotes du Rhone, made from six grapes (40% Grenache and the rest various proportions of Syrah, Cinsault, Carignan, Mourvedre and Counoise) displays gamey balsam wood notes intermixed with underbrush, forest floor, black currants, sweet cherries and a hint of mulberries. There are plenty of various berry fruits and spices in this wine...

2009 Château des Tours Vacqueyras Réserve

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The sensational 2009 Vacqueyras should age as well as its 2004 counterpart, but it is a headier cuvee with relatively high alcohol (probably 15+%). It exhibits abundant notes of kirsch liqueur, licorice and raspberry in addition to a full-bodied style filled with fruit and character. Aged completely in tank, it comes across like a family member of the great Chateau Rayas. This is the home estate of Emmanuel Reynaud, who has been producing the wines of Rayas since 1997. A relatively large estate of nearly 100 acres, Domaine des Tours fashions some remar ...Read More »

2009 Domaine Jamet Côte-Rôtie (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Wine Spectator: "A stunner, with captivating damson plum, bitter cherry, blood orange and blackberry fruit all melded together and lined with savory, black olive, rosemary and saucisson sec notes. The finish delivers mouthwatering cut, with an iron frame that should carry this easily for two decades. A distinctive and singular expression of old-school Côte-Rôtie. Best from 2017 through 2030. (JM)" (11/2013) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Possessing more stuffing than the '12 (but maybe not its purity and seamlessness), the 2009 Cote Rotie offers tons of cassis, black raspberry, incense, peppery herbs an ...Read More »

2009 Clos du Caillou "Les Safres" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(70% Roussanne, with Clairette and Grenache Blanc, raised in four- and five-year-old barriques): Bright yellow-gold. Ripe yellow plum and dried pear on the intensely perfumed nose, with complicating notes of flowers and herbs. Smooth and concentrated, offering sappy citrus and orchard fruit flavors and notes of chalk, anise and honey. The finish shows a refreshingly bitter note and lingers with impressive spiciness and tenacity. (JR)" (1/2012) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Le Clos du Caillou’s 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape blanc, also called Les Safres, is an intriguing blend of 70% Roussan ...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 Lucien & Andre Brunel "Les Cailloux" Châteauneuf-du-Pape New!
2009 Lucien & Andre Brunel "Les Cailloux" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "***Editors' Choice*** 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. It's excellent now, but will be even better in 2016 and beyond. (JC)" (2/2013) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape is a blockbuster. Deep ruby-colored and a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Mourv ...Read More »

2009 Domaine La Milliere "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (from 80-100 year old vines) exhibits a dark ruby/plum color as well as a big, voluptuous mouthfeel revealing copious pepper, garrigue, black cherry, lavender and damp earth notes. It is a full-bodied, luscious, sexy example of Chateauneuf du Pape to enjoy over the next decade." (10/2011) 90-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Powerful aromas of black raspberry, licorice, garrigue and smoked meat. Dense and ripe, with good depth adding to the dark berry and licorice pastille flavors.

2009 Paul Autard "La Côte Ronde" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Autard's quasi-modern-styled offering is the dense plum/purple-colored 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee La Cote Ronde, a blend of equal parts Grenache and Syrah from relatively old vines (60 plus years) that sees some new oak barrels. However, the 2009 shows only subtle evidence of vanillin and toast. It is a seductive, full-bodied, opulent effort displaying notes of caramelized red and black fruits, herbs, licorice and a hint of ink. This full-bodied, rich 2009 is ideal for drinking over the next 12+ years." (10/2011) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Beautifully rendered, with sleek, polis ...Read More »

2009 Delas Freres "Domaine des Tourettes" Hermitage

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A wine that flirts with perfection is the inky and opaque 2009 Hermitage Domaine des Tourettes. Coming from L'Ermite, le Sabot, and Les Bessards, and aged in a combination of new and used French oak barrels, it gives up a heavenly bouquet of crushed rocks, blackberries, leather, wild herbs and earth. Massively concentrated on the palate, with another level of fruit and texture over the 2010, it has brilliant purity, building tannin and a blockbuster finish. There's enough tannin here to warrant hiding in the cellar for 4-5 years, but it should last for 3 ...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.

Abundant aromas of blackberry fruit, white chocolate, espresso roast and acacia flowers jump from the glass of this opulent, full-bodied, powerful Hermitage. With great intensity as well as silky tannins, this chewy, thick, well-endowed wine should evolve for 20-25+ years." (12/2011) K&L Notes: 13.5% abv.

2009 M. Chapoutier "Les Granits" Saint-Joseph Rouge

95 points Wine Spectator: "Densely packed, delivering layers of roasted fig, crushed blackberry and macerated plum fruit, all stitched together with singed apple wood and cocoa powder notes. The finish hints at a tangy iron edge, but is cloaked in fruit and toast for now. Terrific cut and length. Best from 2014 through 2024. (JM)" (9/2012) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More sweetly fruited (not unlike the 2011), the 2009 Saint Joseph Les Granits literally bursts from the glass with ripe black raspberry, kirsch, toasted bread, spice and floral-like aromas and flavors.

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 »

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 M. Chapoutier "Vin de Paille" Ermitage (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

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 Mayard "La Crau de Ma Mere" Chateauneuf-du-Pape

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Drinking the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape La Crau de Ma Mere is like drinking a liquid version of an open-air Provencal fruit and vegetable/charcuterie market. Lavender, pepper, salami, sweet red and black currant and gamey aromas jump from the glass of this sexy, full-bodied, opulent wine made from 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre, all from 105-year-old vines located in the famous lieu-dit in the eastern sector of Chateauneuf du Pape, La Crau.

Usually about 1,000 cases are produced and the 2009, which tops the scales at 15.5% alcohol, is brilliant.

2009 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The greatest wines Chave has produced since 2003 are the two cuvees of 2009 Hermitage. The 2009 Hermitage exhibits a black/purple color along with a sumptuous nose of roasted meats, ground pepper, black currants, blackberry jam, and subtle smoke and licorice. The extraordinary bouquet is followed by a wine of extravagant intensity as well as tremendous focus and precision. While not as powerful as the blockbuster 2003, the amazing 2009 may turn out to be a modern day version of their magnificent 1990 (which is drinking incredibly well at present).
