2009 Domaine de la Janasse "Tradition" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape is probably one of the strongest “regular” efforts I have ever tasted from Sabon. This dense purple blend of 75 to 80% Grenache and the rest Mourvedre and Syrah, aged in truncated wood cuves and foudres, has a beautiful, sweet nose of black cherry jam intermixed with roasted herbs, black currants, forest floor and a hint of charcoal. The wine has great intensity, full-bodied opulence, and a striking seductiveness that is already irresistible. (RP)" (10/2011) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Powerfully rendered, with a large core of fig sauce, plum preserves an ...Read More »

2009 E. Guigal "Brune et Blonde" Côte-Rotie

91-94 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. (JD)" (8/2014) 93 points Wine Spectator: "A rich, fleshy style, offering lots of pastis-soaked plum, blackberry and currant fruit at the core, backed by ganache and singed juniper notes that add texture and length on the finish, with a terrific ir ...Read More »

2009 Paul Autard "Cuvée Juline" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

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. (JM)" (10/2011) 93 points Vinous: "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 dar ...Read More »

2009 Domaine de la Jaufrette Gigondas Top Pick!
2009 Domaine de la Jaufrette Gigondas

A gem from Gigondas, the Jaufrette is 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre from an exciting vintage. It’s held in the winery’s own cellar until it’s ready for release. Blackberries, Maraska cherries, garrigue, cocoa powder and coffee lead to a mouthfilling wine. The more this opens, the more you’re pulled in. (Keith Mabry, K&L Rhone buyer) More on the domaine, from the importer, Paris Wine Company: "The wines of Domaine de la Jaufrette are resolutely old-fashioned, as the domaine has refused to change the winemaking style since the André and Paulet...

2009 Domaine de la Jaufrette Châteauneuf-du-Pape

According to the importer, Paris Wine Company: "The wines of Domaine de la Jaufrette are resolutely old-fashioned, as the domaine has refused to change the winemaking style since the André and Paulette Chastan moved to Orange in the 1950s... Today, the Domaine de la Jaufrette is run by Alain’s son Frederic, who has maintained the same traditional winemaking philosophy. Vinification is a slow process - the fermentation occurs naturally in large concrete tanks, where the wine is allowed to sit for up to a year. It is then aged in a mix of used foudres and ...

2009 Château Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $90)

96 points Wine Spectator: "One of the more endowed 2009s, this is packed with dark smoldering cocoa, mesquite, tobacco and roasted fig notes, all inlaid with pure cassis and plum preserves fruit flavors. Long and authoritative on the finish, with singed vanilla bean and tar notes adding length and dimension. Best from 2015 through 2026." (2/2012) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape is reminiscent of their brilliant 1985. It will be one of the rare Beaucastels that is drinkable upon release. Made from this estate’s classic blend, it possesses soft tannins as well as a silky, open ...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 Beaucastel "Vieilles Vignes" Roussanne Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

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 du Vieux Telegraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L)

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. (JS)" (10/2011) 93 points Vinous: "(65% grenache, 15% each of mourvedre and syrah, and the rest all the other varieties; aged in a combination of foudres and concrete): Bright ruby.

Spicy cherry and blackberry aromas, with an energetic floral note adding complexity and tangy mineral providing lift. Silky and sweet, with sappy berry liqueur and candied violet qualities on the palate. The seductive, persistent finish shows smoky spiciness and lingering florality. (JR)" (03/2012)

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."

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.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine Vincent Paris "Granit 60" Cornas ((93-95RP), 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dense purple-colored 2009 Cornas Granite 60 Vieilles Vignes exhibits aromas of black raspberries, blackberries, licorice, camphor, subtle barbecue smoke and meat juices. This full-bodied, massive 2009 needs at least 5-6 years of bottle age. It should keep for 20-25 years. While the 2009s are softer and more accessible (because of lower acids and more opulent textures), they are extremely large-scaled, substantial reds that will benefit from a few more years of cellaring.

2009 Auguste Clape Cornas

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Almost as good, yet in a completely different style, the 2009 Cornas is about as sexy and voluptuous as Cornas gets! Loaded with kirsch, licorice, dried flowers and smoked meat-like aromas and flavors, this awesome 2009 has thrilling concentration, full-bodied richness and knockout length. It has the fruit to impress today, but needs 3-4 years of bottle age and will have over two decades of longevity.

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

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full ruby. Intense black raspberry and mulberry aromas are complicated by suggestions of Asian spices, licorice and musky herbs. Bright and sappy on the palate, with a seamless texture to the spice-accented red and dark berry compote flavors. Notes of lavender and allspice carry through the long, juicy, nicely focused finish. I suspect that this wine will drink well on the young side. (JR)" (1/2012) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dark ruby/plum 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Mon Aieul (in most years a blend of 95 to nearly 100% Grenache, aged 90% in cement tanks and the remainin ...Read More »

2009 Roger Sabon "Secret de Sabon" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I was surprised by the softness and silkiness of the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Le Secret des Sabon. Largely a field blend estimated to be about 90% Grenache and 10% unidentifiable varieties, it is the most accessible Secret des Sabon made to date. Its opaque purple color is followed by hints of coffee beans, new saddle leather and vanillin (the wine was aged in 1-2 year old 600-liter demi-muids), broad, powerful, concentrated flavors and tannins in the finish. Although it is not currently strutting its stuff as impressively as the Prestige, it should come ...Read More »

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 Château de Beaucastel "Hommage à Jacques Perrin" Chateauneuf-du-Pape

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Shockingly good, the 2009 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage À Jacques Perrin offers an off-the-charts bouquet of Provençal herbs, truffle and wet-dog-like qualities intermixed with classic blueberry, blackberry and cassis fruit. Massive and full-bodied on the palate, with a sheer density and decadence that’s hard to believe, this is a pedal-to-the-metal effort that has the fruit to drink beautifully today, yet the concentration, mid-palate, tannin and balance to age for 3-4 decades. Made from a blend of 60% Mourvedre, 20% Syrah and the rest Counoise and Grenac ...Read More »

2009 Domaine de la Janasse "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5)

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is considered by many observers in Chateauneuf du Pape to be the wine of the vintage, and it can most certainly be counted among the finest. A blend of 80% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Mourvedre tipping the scales at 15.5% natural alcohol (which is slightly less than the Chaupin), the wine has an inky black/purple color as well as incredible density and richness, with notes of soy, blackberry, and blueberry liqueur, incense, acacia flowers and licorice. The layered, full-bodied mouthfeel displays no heat, b ...Read More »

2009 Château des Tours Vacqueyras New!
2009 Château des Tours Vacqueyras

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 »
