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. It's excellent now, but will be even better in 2016 and beyond. *Editors' Choice* (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% Mourvedre ...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 Clos Saint-Jean "Combe des Fous" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A wine that blew me away, and the best bottle of this I've tasted, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Combe des Fous gave up exotic and intense aromas and flavors of ground pepper, kirsch liqueur, incense, white chocolate and crushed flowers. About as seamless and sexy as they come, this extraordinary Chateauneuf boasts incredible concentration, no hard edges and insane length on the finish. Much more forward and open than the 2010, drink it over the coming 10 to 15 years (JD)." (8/2014) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full ruby. An exotic, highly perfumed bouquet evokes red and dark berry pr ...Read More »

2009 Domaine du Tunnel (Stéphane Robert) Cornas

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cornas exhibits a black/purple color along with aromas of blackberries, creme de cassis, licorice, espresso roast, forest floor and hints of new saddle leather as well as crushed rocks. This velvety textured, full Cornas can be drunk now or cellared for 15 years. (RP)" (12/2011) 90-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark purple. Smoky dark berry and cherry compote aromas, with hints of licorice, olive and black pepper. Deeply pitched blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors show very good depth and are lifted by tangy acidity. Dense but not heavy, with very good finishing clarity and sp ...Read More »

2009 Paul Jaboulet Aîné "La Chapelle" Hermitage (stained labels)

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 »

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are approximately 10,000 bottles of the sensational 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Anonyme, which is fashioned from an unusual blend of 25% Grenache, 25% Mourvedre, 25% Syrah and the remaining 25% Counoise, Vaccarese and other authorized varietals. Its opaque purple color is followed by a wine of extraordinary intensity. Copious notes of licorice, garrigue, underbrush, blackberries, black currants and graphite are present in this full-bodied, modern-styled, fragrant, distinctive Chateauneuf.

2009 Henri Bonneau "Réserve des Célestins" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

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 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 Domaine Beaurenard "Cuvée Boisrenard" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points 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) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Boisrenard (60% Grenache and 40% other varietals from 60- to 100-year-ol ...Read More »

2009 Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes (99RP, 95VN, 95WS). 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, but the wine has massive concentration and a silky, smooth finish. Because of the low acidity in the 2009s, and sweet tannins, this has turned out to be a glorious example of Chateauneuf du Pape to drink over the next two decades. (RP)" (10/2011)

2009 Clos Saint Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A spectacular showing, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape was firing on all cylinders at this tasting. As sexy and seamless as they come, with blackberry liqueur, kirsch, creamy licorice, orange peel and dried flower-like aromas and flavors, it hits the palate with a full-bodied, up-front, decadent style that just begs to be drunk. Drink this puppy while you wait on the 2010. (JD)" (8/2014) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Ripe black raspberry and cherry on the fragrant nose. Spicy and precise on entry, then deeper in the mid-palate, offering pliant red and dark berry preserves f ...Read More »

2009 Janasse "Chaupin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of my favorites was already the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Chaupin (which is always aged in foudres and 600-liter demi-muids, two-thirds in the former and one-third in the latter) and this wine has really put on richness and intensity since I tasted it last year. An absolutely magnificent wine, it scored a good four points higher this year, and it is unusual for me to vary that much from one tasting to the next. Tipping the scales at 15% natural alcohol, this dense purple wine has noble sweetness and an extraordinary concentration of lavender, black ch ...Read More »

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

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another wine that got better and better over the evening was the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul. I've drunk through my fair share of bottles of this over the past few years. It has never shut down and has always shown well. A ripe, forward and sexy wine, it has lots of kirsch, garrigue, exotic spice and floral notes to go with a ripe, concentrated feel on the palate. It certainly has the vintage's Provencal character and is an exuberant, hedonistic Grenache to enjoy over the coming 10-12 years. (JD)" (9/2015) 93 points Vinous: "Full ruby.

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 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 »

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.

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.

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 »

Spicy and focused on entry, then deeper in the mid-palate, offering juicy redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors with a touch of succulent herbs. The smoky note comes back on the pungent finish, which is taut, brisk and very persistent."

Lush and palate-staining, with noteworthy intensity to its open-knit dark berry, spicecake and floral pastille flavors.
