94-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the reds, I was able to taste all of the components of the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape and this will unquestionably be another terrific vintage from this estate. All of the samples had inky, purple colors, classic aromatics, good acidity and freshness, and balanced profiles. The Mourvèdre, in particular, was beautiful.

2015 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I loved the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape from Claire Michel and it’s a classic blend of 75% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault, mostly from rolled stone terroirs, that was partially destemmed and brought up all in foudre. It’s a downright sexy, voluptuous 2015 offering textbook notes of kirsch liqueur, ground pepper, herbes de Provence, and incense. It picks up more dark fruit with time in the glass, is full-bodied, has plenty of fat and glycerin, and ample tannin, although they’re so polished you have to hunt for them.

Kirsch, loads of black and blue fruits, flowers and lavender notes all emerge from this full-bodied 2015 that has fine, fine tannin, solid mid-palate depth and a great finish.

92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I loved the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Lucille Avril, and I’ve bought and cellared this cuvée for years (the 2007 is killer juice). Big, structured and tannic, yet with sensational purity and classic notes of blackberries, raspberries, roasted meats and roasted herbs, it expands on the palate, is impeccably balanced and will be an age-worthy Châteauneuf du Pape. I’ve had numerous splendid bottles from this estate over the past decade and I continue to love the wines from the young Vincent Durieu.

2015 Clos Saint Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape

90-92 points Vinous: "Brilliant ruby. Pungent dark berry, licorice and garrigue aromas are energized by a hint of white pepper. Chewy and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry, cassis and blood orange flavors that show very good structure and depth. Closes long and spicy, displaying lingering dark fruit character, building tannins and a touch of succulent herbs. (JR)" (3/2017) 91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Leading off the 2015s from bottle, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape sports a vibrant ruby color as well as an elegant, classic, pure style that just begs to be drunk.

1995 Domaine de Pégaü "Cuvée Reservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1995 Cuvee Reservee exhibits an opaque black/purple color, and extraordinary rich, intense aromas of smoke, black raspberries, kirsch, and spice. Exceptionally full-bodied, with an unctuous texture, and a thick, rich, expansive mid-palate, this superbly concentrated wine appears to be a worthy rival to this estate's phenomenal 1989 and 1990. Interestingly, the average alcohol level achieved by Domaine du Pegau in 1995 was 14.5-15.5%. This is a blockbuster Chateauneuf du Pape. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2020. (RP)" (1/1997)

2015 Château de Beaucastel "Hommage à Jacques Perrin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A classic blend of mostly Mourvèdre, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin is a blockbuster that’s certainly the wine of the vintage. Possessing an inky purple color to go with an incredible bouquet of blueberries, garrigue, olive tapenade, beef blood and pepper, it's rich, full-bodied, powerful and layered, with sweet, ripe tannin. It's a more approachable example of this cuvée that past vintages, yet will keep for 3 decades or more. The Perrin family continues to knock it out of the park and have produced some of the wines of the vinta ...Read More »

2015 Chateau Sixtine Chateauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Decanter: "Southern density on the nose. Strong core of flavour – discreet power but very long; connects to its terroir. Drinking Window 2020 - 2036. (JLL)" (3/2017) 95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The estate’s top cuvée is the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Chateau Sixtine, and it's a blend of 45% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre and 25% Syrah brought up mostly in older barrels, with 7% in new oak. It's more firm and focused than the sexy Cuvée du Vatican and offers lots of blackberries, black raspberry, toasted spice, licorice and garrigue aromatics. Big, rich, tannic and structured, yet gorgeously textured, gi ...Read More »

2014 Clos Saint-Jean "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Top Pick!
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 »

2014 Le Clos du Caillou "La Réserve" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $110)

93-95 points Vinous: "Dark ruby. Potent, mineral-accented blueberry, cherry compote and licorice aromas are complicated by suave floral and Asian spice qualities, picking up a cola note with air. Seamless, round and alluringly sweet, offering intense red and blue fruit preserve and floral pastille flavors and a touch of five-spice powder. Finishes sappy and extremely long, displaying velvety tannins and a late jolt of dark berry liqueur. (JR)" (4/2016) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A candidate for the wine of the vintage, the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape La Reserve is the classic 60/40 split of Grenache and Mou ...Read More »

2015 La Ferme du Mont "Côtes Capelan" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 La Ferme du Mont "Côtes Capelan" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even better than the Vendange cuvee, and I suspect one of the wines of the vintage, Stephane’s 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Côtes Capelan is the top wine of the estate and is made from 80% Grenache and 10% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre, raised 70% in concrete and 30% in barrels. There’s under 500 cases of this beauty and it reveals a deep purple color as well as decadent notes of blackberries, blackcurrants, crushed rocks and melted licorice. Full-bodied, thick, unctuous and massively concentrated, with ripe tannin and a killer finish, don’t miss it! If you ...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. (JebDunnuck.com)" (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 P ...Read More »

2015 Bosquet des Papes "Tradition" Chateauneuf-du-Pape

90-92 points Vinous: "Bright ruby-red. High-pitched, spice-accented red fruit aromas are complicated by floral and herb nuances that build with air. Sweet, penetrating raspberry and cherry flavors show very good depth and energy, while licorice pastille and white pepper qualities develop slowly. Rich yet lively in style, finishing with very good focus and gentle tannins that frame the appealingly sweet fruit. This wine is an excellent example of a "basic" Châteauneuf."

2015 Château de la Font du Loup Châteauneuf-du-Pape

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The grapes for Font du Loup's 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape weren't destemmed, and it shows in the wine's pretty, garrigue-scented floral aromas. Ripe cherries take over on the full-bodied, creamy-supple palate, ending on a bright, berry-like finish. This is deceptively easy to drink already, but it should evolve gracefully for up to 15 years. (JC)" (10/2017) Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape from is a fresh, elegant expression of this cooler terroir. Strawberries, wildflowers and hints of spice all flow to a medium-bodied, silky, elegant and polished 2015 that has ...Read More »

2015 Chateau de Vaudieu "Val de Dieu" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

93-95 points Vinous: "Brilliant ruby. Sexy, intensely perfumed raspberry, boysenberry and rose pastille scents are complemented by hints of cola, rhubarb and peppery spices. Palate-staining red and blue fruit flavors show impressive power as well as vivacity thanks to a spine of juicy acidity. The floral quality comes back emphatically on a very long, sappy finish shaped by smooth tannins. This wine's urgency and power are superb, as is its balance.
