2016 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the grand vin, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is backward and dense, with a huge mid-palate, notes of framboise, black cherries, roasted herbs, nori, and spice, a thick, opulent texture, and yet no sense of weight or heaviness. With ripe, polished tannin and a blockbuster finish, it might just be the greatest wine from this estate to date." (10/2017) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In contrast to the Piedlong, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is a darker, richer wine. Yes, there are ripe cherries but also cola, blueberries and spice. Full-bodied and rich, it should easily outdistance ...Read More »

2016 Chateau Sixtine Chateauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The flagship is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Château Sixtine, and it's a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre brought up in barrel. Black and blue fruits, graphite, licorice and pot roast like nuances all emerge from this huge, unctuous, concentrated beauty that tick s all the pleasure boxes. Despite its richness level, it stays balanced and pure. Reminding me slightly of an improved 2003, don't miss it." (10/2017) Jancis Robinson: "50% Grenache, 25% Mourvèdre, 25% Syrah. Cask sample. Sumptuous, succulent red fruit on the nose. Lovely savoury note on the palate lending gr ...Read More »

2015 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Elsewhere $40)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One surprise to emerge from this blind tasting was the super performance of Chante Cigale's 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape. This full-bodied blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault boasts wonderfully supple, creamy tannins, raspberry and cherry fruit, and a dusting of cinnamon and allspice on the long, dusty finish.

2016 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A wine that’s going to be up with the finest vintage ever from this estate, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape (75% Grenache, 10% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre, and the balance Cinsault) offers a southern Rhône smorgasbord of aromas and flavors including huge pepper, black raspberries, blackberries, new saddle leather and garrigue. Reminding me of the 1998 with its huge, full-bodied, unctuous texture and present tannin, it’s going to need 2-4 years of cellaring and keep for 15+."

2016 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "Piedlong" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Piedlong comes at you with waves of flowing stone fruit, from cherries, to apricots, to plums. It's richly concentrated yet velvety, with a long, peppery finish. It looks to be a beauty. Daniel Brunier said that all of the estate's 2016 reds are 15.5% alcohol or more, yet I didn't find excessive heat in any of them—a testament to the richness of the wines and the balance achieved in this vintage. With similar growing seasons and yields between 2015 and 2016, Brunier says, "I don't know where comes the differences." The fam ...Read More »

Deep, rich, unctuous and decadent, with huge extract and richness, yet never over the top or overripe, it's a killer wine that's going to flirt with perfection on release."

Just a huge, rich, unctuous wine, it offers everything you could want from Grenache and is certainly going to challenge the 2007 and 2010 as the greatest expression of this terroir to date."

2014 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape is a charming, surprisingly ripe, textured effort in the vintage and is well worth your time and money. Bing cherries, kirsch, roasted herbs and licorice all flow from this medium-bodied, balanced and lengthy 2014 that will drink nicely for at least 5-6 years. (JD)" (10/2016) K&L Notes: Chante Cigale means singing cicada.

95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A vintage compared to 2010 by Laurence, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape looks to be one of the big successes in the vintage. Possessing ripe, rounded, sexy style backed up by solid density and concentration, it offers classic Pegau notes of currants, pepper, and cured meats.

This behemoth offers awesome notes of blueberries, plums, violets and spring flowers, with hints of sandy/loamy/soil notes developing with time in the glass. Full-bodied, fat, unctuous and hedonistic, it stays balanced lively and fresh on the palate, with no weight. Sign me up."

It shows hints of new oak in its black raspberries, blackberry, cured meats, crushed violets and spice-driven aromatics. This gives way to a rich, incredibly concentrated base cuvée that could easily be mistaken for the Vieille Vignes from another good year.

Light savory and sanguine accents emerge steadily through the finish. A light echo of brick dust at the end keeps this in the old-school camp. Best from 2018 through 2025.

For example, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Renaissance (60/40 Grenache and Mourvèdre) is easily the finest vintage of this cuvée I’ve tasted and it’s loaded with awesome notes of cassis and blackberry fruit intermixed with notions of crushed flowers, cured meats and hints of vanilla bean.

(8/2017) 93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Mourvèdre, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Piedlong is gorgeous, and I’d certainly be happy to drink a bottle. Blackcurrants, kirsch, seaweed, tapenade, and shitake notes all flow to a ripe, supple, sexy red that has fine tannin, solid depth, a ...Read More »

2015 Domaine Grand Veneur "Le Miocène" Chateâuneuf-du-Pape

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Almost as terrific as the Les Origines, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Le Miocene is a traditional blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, matured in older wood. Dark-skinned fruit, like blueberries and black cherries, form the full-bodied core of the wine, accented by hints of garrigue and dried spices. The texture is rich and creamy, turning softly dusty on the long finish. (JC)" (10/2017) 91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The base cuvée is the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Le Miocène, and it's a terrific wine in the vintage as well. Black raspberries, ground pepper, spice and ample ...Read More »

2007 Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (375ml)

96+ points Robert Parker: "The 2007 Vieux Telegraphe may be the greatest wine made at this property since the 2005 and 1998. Dense ruby/purple-tinged with an exquisite nose of salty sea breezes, licorice, ground pepper, jammy black cherries, black currants, figs, and plums, this is a full-bodied, rich, Provencal-styled offering with lots of sweet, ripe tannin. It is surprisingly accessible for a Vieux Telegraphe (this wine normally shuts down several years after bottling), but it should have great longevity (25+ years) given its power, full-bodied mouthf...

2015 Domaine Giraud "Tradition" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is a terrific effort. Cherries and dried spices mingle easily on the nose and palate, and while the wine is full-bodied, it's also amazingly supple, turning silky on the long finish. It may not be tremendously long-lived, but it's delicious. (JC)" (10/2017) 91-93 points Vinous: "Bright ruby. Intense cherry and red berry aromas pick up notes of incense, anise and lavender with aeration. Spicy, concentrated and focused on the palate, offering appealingly sweet raspberry, cherry liqueur and floral pastille flavors underscored by a vein of juicy acidity ...Read More »

2016 Domaine de la Janasse Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to their Châteauneuf du Papes and a blend of 40% Roussanne and the rest Grenache Blanc and Clairette, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc now has the Roussanne brought up in demi-muid as opposed to the barriques, with the goal of better-integrated oak. Orchard fruits, lemon, honeysuckle, and hints of buttered citrus all emerge from this gorgeous, elegant, seamless white that has both richness and elegance. With integrated acidity, impeccable balance and a great finish, it offers pleasure today, yet will keep for decades." (10/2017) 92 points James Suckling: "A creamy, honey-dr ...Read More »

2014 Clos Saint-Jean "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

92-94 points Vinous: "Brilliant ruby. A powerfully scented bouquet evokes ripe red and dark berries, incense and pungent flowers, and a smoky Indian spice nuance builds in the glass. Fleshy and broad on entry and then tighter in the middle, offering juicy, concentrated black raspberry and boysenberry flavors given spine by juicy acidity. Rich yet energetic, finishing with outstanding clarity and sweet persistence and shaped by smooth tannins. (JR)" (4/2016) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Richer, darker and also slightly more polished, the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is another beautiful wine and ...Read More »

2015 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A vintage compared to 2010 by Laurence, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape looks to be one of the big successes in the vintage. Possessing ripe, rounded, sexy style backed up by solid density and concentration, it offers classic Pegau notes of currants, pepper, and cured meats. Big, rich, concentrated and beautifully textured, it offers a rare depth of fruit and richness in the vintage. 95-97+ points." (10/2017) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee (scheduled to be bottled November 2017) is a very fine, elegant example of Châteauneuf du Pape. Garrigue and ...Read More » 



2016 Château Beaucastel Roussanne Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Vieilles Vignes (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Also bottled two weeks ago, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Roussanne Vieilles Vignes is utterly killer and is as good as it gets. Huge notes of orange blossom, peach, tangerine, honeysuckle, and caramelized citrus flow from this insanely good, unctuous, heavenly textured white that possesses full-bodied richness and power, yet stays light, graceful and perfectly balanced on the palate. Drink bottles anytime over the coming 4-6 years, or cellar for a decade or more. Robert Parker once famously called this the Montrachet of the Rhône, and I wholeheartedly ag ...Read More » 



2015 Domaine Saint Préfert "Classique" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Top Pick!
2015 Domaine Saint Préfert "Classique" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Wine Spectator: "Energetic, with a big ball of kirsch wound tightly with licorice, graphite and raspberry coulis notes. Shows lots of bright spice accents through the finish, which is carried by finely beaded acidity. (JM, Web Only-2017)" 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is a great effort that should be reasonably available. Produced from vines under 30 years old, it's a blend of 85% Grenache, 5% Cinsault, 5% Mourvèdre and 5% Syrah. There's a tinge of chocolate to the raspberry and licorice flavors but also hints of orange zest, cinnamon and clove. It's full-bodied and lush, w ...Read More »

2015 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes

92-94 points Vinous: "Lurid ruby-red. A highly perfumed, expansive bouquet evokes ripe red berries, Indian spices and candied lavender, along with a smoky mineral topnote. Juicy, focused and impressively concentrated, offering intense black raspberry, cherry and spicecake flavors that become more lively on the back half. Clings with excellent tenacity on the youthfully tannic finish, leaving star anise and floral notes behind. (JR)" (3/2017) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The pricier 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a traditional blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre.

2016 Chateau de Vaudieu Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Vaudieu's classic white is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc, and it's a blend of 66% Grenache Blanc and 34% Roussanne brought up in 20% new oak. Its light gold color is followed by classic notes of buttered citrus, flower blossom, and honeysuckle. Possessing medium to full-bodied richness, terrific minerality, and bright acidity, as well as concentration, it's a gorgeous effort to enjoy over the coming 3-4 years, and I suspect even longer. This is another great lineup from Chateau de Vaudieu, who have risen to the top of the heap recently. They make a ...Read More »

2016 Domaine de la Janasse "Chaupin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape(1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

97-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Made with close to 50% stems (the highest in a while) and brought up in foudre and demi-muids (20% new), the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Chaupin sports deep ruby/purple color as well as sensational notes of kirsch liqueur, black raspberries, crushed flowers, crushed rocks, and incense. Just a huge, rich, unctuous wine, it offers everything you could want from Grenache and is certainly going to challenge the 2007 and 2010 as the greatest expression of this terroir to date." (10/2017) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted from a single foudre representing the La Crau Est lieu-dit, the ...Read More »

2016 Domaine de la Janasse "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape(1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

98-100 points Vinous: "Incorporating 8% Mourvèdre, 12% Syrah and 5% other permitted variety, 60% destemmed, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Vieilles Vignes sports a deep, inky color as well as sensational notes of black currants, smoked meats, earth and crushed rocks. Deep, rich, unctuous and decadent, with huge extract and richness, yet never over the top or overripe, it's a killer wine that's going to flirt with perfection on release." (10/2017) 96 points Decanter: "Part destemmed and fermented in concrete before being aged in foudre and demi-muids for 12 months. It has an agreeable nose, brood ...Read More » 



2010 Le Clos du Caillou "Les Quartz" Châteaunuef-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even better, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Quartz offers additional depth and richness, with ample dark fruits, blackberry, crushed rock and edgy minerality giving way to a full-bodied, big, powerful wine that won’t hit prime-time for another 3-4 years. When all is said and done, it will have two decades of longevity. (JD)" (8/2014) 95 points Wine Spectator: "This is fruit in hyperdrive, with a torrent of crushed blueberry, boysenberry and blackberry flavors rushing along, laced with sweet licorice and fruitcake and driving through the long, very polished finish, where a nice ech ...Read More »
