2009 Château Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $90) Top Pick!
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 »

2013 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape Top Pick!
2013 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape

91 points Vinous: "Deep red. Fresh, mineral-tinged red and dark berry scents are given depth by suggestions of licorice and cola. Sappy raspberry and boysenberry flavors show very good depth and pick up a suave lavender pastille nuance on the back half. Concentrated yet lively, delivering strong thrust and smooth, even tannins that build steadily through a long, floral-dominated finish. (JR)" (4/2016) Jancis Robinson: "Bright crimson. Firm and substantial with more obvious tannin than most but sufficient (just) fruit too. Not that sweet. Racy, food wine. Cool overall."

2010 Xavier Vins "Cuvée Anonyme" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The powerful, rich 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Anonyme reveals an off-the-chart level of extract, lots of glycerin (nearly 16% natural alcohol) and copious black cherry, blueberry, forest floor, lavender and graphite characteristics. This full-throttle red requires 3-4 years of cellaring and should keep for two decades. Xavier Vignon, along with Philippe Cambie, are probably the two most highly renowned oenologists in Chateauneuf du Pape as well as some of the surrounding Cotes du Rhone regions. (RP)" (10/2012)

2012 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $80)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of my favorite wines, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Réservée is a classic. Beautiful on the nose, with notions of ground pepper, wild herbs, minerality and smoked plum and dark fruit, it’s medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and has plenty of tannin that comes through on the finish. Similar in style to a lighter-weight 2010, drink this beauty anytime over the coming 12-15 years. (JD)" (10/2014) 93 points Vinous: "Opaque ruby.

Then tightly wound and focused on the palate, offering intense flavors of dark berries, bitter cherry and candied flowers. Powerful but at the same time quite elegant, finishing with wonderful clarity and length and smooth tannins.

2007 Château Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2007 Château Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Beaucastel’s 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape has turned out even better out of bottle than I predicted. An inky/ruby/purple color is followed by a glorious nose of blue and black fruits, truffles, pen ink, licorice, and meat juices as well as glorious levels of acidity and sweet tannin, buttressing the fruit’s fabulous freshness and vibrancy. This full-bodied effort still displays considerable tannin, no doubt because of the relatively high Mourvedre content. It should resolve its tannins in 2-4 years, and last for 25 or more. One of the great estates of the ...Read More »

2001 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Beaucastel has been on a terrific qualitative roll over the last four vintages, and the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape (which Francois Perrin feels is similar to the 1990, although I don’t see that as of yet) is a 15,000-case blend of 30% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, 10% Counoise, and the balance split among the other permitted varietals of the appellation. This inky/ruby/purple-colored cuvee offers a classic Beaucastel bouquet of new saddle leather, cigar smoke, roasted herbs, black truffles, underbrush, and blackberry as well as cherry fruit. It is a ...Read More »

2014 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I love the traditional 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc and this blend of equal parts Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc and Clairette offers classic notes of citrus blossom, dried herbs, spice and hints of white flowers on the nose. Medium-bodied, pure, elegant, and lively with racy acidity on the finish, it’s beautifully done and will drink nicely for 4-5 years. (JD)" (10/2015)

2010 Raymond Usseglio "Cuvée Impériale, Vignes Centenaires" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A candidate for perfection, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Imperiale Vignes Centenaire is clearly the greatest wine I have ever tasted from Raymond Usseglio, even eclipsing their remarkable 2007. Don’t be surprised if it merits a three-digit score in five or six years. Somewhat closed, but bursting with potential, the wine is inky/purple to the rim and boasts abundant amounts of concentrated, jammy blackberry, kirsch, licorice, lavender, forest floor, white chocolate and a hint of truffles in its magnificent perfume.

Superlong, with mineral, violet, pepper and additional crushed cherry and plum fruit notes all gliding through the finish. Best from 2011 through 2027.

2013 Domaine Saint Prefert "Classique" Chateauneuf-du-Pape

91-93 points Vinous: "Vivid ruby-red. High-pitched, mineral-tinged aromas of fresh red berries and flowers, in a style that's strongly reminiscent of a ripe-year Burgundy. Shows very good clarity and lift on the palate, with sweet raspberry and rose pastille flavors sharpened by a jolt of blood orange. This supple, open-knit wine is firmed on the back by smooth tannins and should be delicious right out of the gate.

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.

2005 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Wine Spectator: "*Collectibles and #1 of Top 100 Wines of 2007* Really tight now, but packed with dark fig, currant, espresso, licorice and chocolate notes. Superfleshy but seriously structured, there's layer after layer of sweet spice, fruit and minerality pumping through the finish, with lots of latent depth and power. Far more backward than the 2003 or 2004 on release, but since this red typically puts on weight as it ages, it should be a monster--à la the 1990--when it reaches its peak. Best from 2009 through 2030. (JM)" (12/2007) 95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Explosively perfumed nose of ...Read More »

2013 Domaine du Clos du Caillou "Réserve les Clos du Caillou" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $100)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The cream of the lineup and one of the stars of the vintage is the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Reserve le Clos du Caillou. Incorporating more Mourvèdre than normal (a blend of 55% Grenache and 45% Mourvèdre), this smokin’ southern Rhône sports a deep ruby/purple color to go with notes of blackcurrants, white pepper, orange liqueur and graphite. Big, full-bodied, supple and elegant, it’s certainly not as massive as some of the greats from this estate (2001, 2005, 2007 or 2010), but hats off to the team for producing a wine of this quality in a difficult vint ...Read More »

Still beautifully put together and aging gracefully, with a core of sweet fruit, it is certainly drinking well now, yet should continue to hold and drink nicely through 2020.

2013 Bosquet des Papes "Tradition" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Supple, open-knit and appealingly sweet, with a hint of white pepper sharpening the zesty redcurrant and raspberry flavors. The spicy quality repeats on the clinging finish, which shows just hint of dusty tannins. I suspect that this wine will provide plenty of appeal soon after release.

2013 Olivier Hillaire "Les Petits Pieds d'Armand" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $70)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Similar to the classic cuvée, only richer, the 2013 Chateauneuf du Papes Les Petits Pieds d’Armand (100% Grenache from the sandy parts of La Crau) knocks it out of the park with its Bing cherry, kirsch, red licorice and floral aromas and flavors. It’s medium to full-bodied, voluptuous and textured, all while staying nicely focused and elegant. There’s enough sweet tannin here to allow it to evolve gracefully, but the overall feel is one of upfront fruit and texture. (JD)" (10/2014)

2012 Domaine du Clos du Caillou "Réserve les Clos du Caillou" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Reserve le Clos du Caillou is a classic example of this cuvee. Made from 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvedre, aged all in demi-muid, it offers ample dark fruits, chocolate, bouquet garni and licorice in its full-bodied, supple, forward and elegantly styled profile. As with all of the 2012s here, the tannin is wonderfully ripe, the wine has solid concentration and everything is perfectly balanced. While it’s hard to resist already, it will be better with short-term cellaring and have 15+ years of overall longevity. (JD)" (10/2014) 95 points Vinous: "In ...Read More »

2013 Bosquet des Papes "Chante le Merle Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

92-94 points Vinous: "Deep ruby. Exotically perfumed scents of dark berries, dried flowers, incense and peppery spices; there was a lot of stem inclusion here and it shows. Spicy, sweet and penetrating, showing excellent depth to its black raspberry and floral pastille flavors, which spread out nicely on the back half. Pure, focused and seamless in texture, finishing with outstanding thrust and spicy persistence. (JR)" (4/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "92+ points. One of the most structured wines in the vintage, the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Chante le Merle Vieilles Vignes gives up ample kirsch, licoric ...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." (11/2011) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 is showing better out of bottle than it was last year. Gorgeous kirsch liqueur notes, raspberry jam, forest floor, spice box, new saddle leather and a ...Read More »

2012 Domaine de la Janasse "Chaupin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Chaupin, which I was able to taste (and drink) from multiple bottles, is a beautiful Grenache that comes from the cooler, northeastern edge of the appellation. Coming almost all from the Chapouin lieu-dit (it gets a small bit from La Janasse), it gives up the classic notes of black berries, spring flowers, violets, and licorice that I always seem to find in this cuvee. Building nicely on the palate, it is medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured, has tons of sweet fruit and solid, if not firm, tannin that come out on ...Read More »

2014 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Not yet bottled, the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape is one of the few inky colored wines in the vintage. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and ripe with notable tannin, it offers beautiful notes of blackberry, shitake mushrooms, licorice and pepper meats. It plays in the 2014 vintage’s forward, supple nature, but has real depth and concentration. I don’t think it will be the longest lived Beaucastel, but it will have 15-20 years of overall longevity. While 2013 and 2014 are no doubt difficult vintages, this is still a brilliant lineup of wines from the Per ...Read More »

2010 Domaine Galevan "Saint Georges" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape St.-Georges possesses magnificent fruit in addition to a skyscraper-like mouthfeel, majestic richness, a layered texture, phenomenal purity and a classic style displaying plenty of bouquet garni, licorice, seaweed, cassis and kirsch characteristics. This sensational 2010 is soft enough to be drunk now, but will be even better with 2-3 years of cellaring. It should last for two decades. A microscopic estate owned by Coralie Goumarre, Domaine Galevan was established, remarkably, in 1780, but the first estate-bottled wine did no ...Read More »

2001 Pierre Usseglio "Reserve des Deux Freres" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $200.00)

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve des Deux Freres elicits 'wows'. Aged 60% in neutral wood foudres and 40% in one, two, and three-year old Burgundy barrels, this 2001, which tips the scales at an awesome 16.2% natural alcohol, boasts an inky/purple color along with a sensationally pure bouquet of blackberries, graphite, acacia flowers, licorice, and sweet kirsch liqueur. Unctuously textured and full-bodied, with high tannin as well as a closed personality, this prodigious yet fabulous Chateauneuf du Pape is a potential legend in the making. It require ...Read More »

2014 Domaine Beaurenard "Cuvée Boisrenard" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc

96 points Wine Spectator: "Youthfully coiled, this features loads of white peach, yellow apple, green fig and melon flavors at the core, surrounded by notes of jasmine, acacia and honeysuckle. Shows beautiful purity through the finish, with a long quinine thread adding even more nuance. The rare white Châteauneuf to cellar. Best from 2016 through 2024. 110 cases made. (JM)" (11/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More tight and focused than the classic cuvée, the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Boisrenard Blanc has a kiss of barrique to go with lots of apple blossom, caramelized citrus, and white flower-like arom ...Read More »
