2016 Clos Saint-Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes is cut from the same cloth, yet ratchets the intensity level up another notch. Possessing lots of dark fruits (and some blue fruits), beautiful minerality, notes of garrigue, roasted meats and melted licorice and full-bodied richness, this big, unctuous beauty may just surpass the 2010 (which has drunk incredibly well since release). I’ve written so many glowing reviews on the wines of Clos Saint Jean I sometimes feel like a broken record. Nevertheless, this estate continues to go from strength to strength an ...Read More »

2016 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

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." (10/2017) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "No surprise, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape takes the quality of the Coudoulet and ratchets it up a notch (or two!). I tasted the preliminary blend from foudre and was blown away by its potential. At 35% Mourvèdre, 25% Grenac ...Read More »

As is normal I was able to taste through numerous foudre of different blends, as well as a foudre of the final blend, all of the samples showed distinct, rich, even opulent profile, terrific purity and ripe backbones. The final cuvee shows the classic sweet core of fruit that’s the hallmark of this estate, as well as notable complexity in its peppery herbs, dried flowers, scorched earth and graphite aromas and flavors. This is a darker fruited cuvee than normal, and I suspect it’s goin ...Read More »

2016 Roger Sabon "Réserve" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Réserve is a downright sexy, exuberant barrel sample that delivers the goods. Blackcurrants, licorice, roasted herbs and hints of flowers all emerge from this full-bodied beauty that has sweet, sweet tannin and a great finish. This cuvée is 80% Grenache and 10% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre, aged mostly in foudre, and it’s possibly the finest vintage of this cuvée to date."

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.

(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.

2016 Bosquet des Papes "Chante le Merle" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The old vine cuvée from the estate is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Chante Le Merle and it’s always a rough blend of 85% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Syrah that’s fermented with 100% whole clusters and aged mostly in foudre and old barrels. This classic Châteauneuf du Pape is bursting at the seams with notions of blackberries, peppery herbs, scorched earth, and licorice. With full-bodied richness, terrific depth of fruit and extract, fine tannin and first-rate purity, it’s going to benefit from short-term cellaring and cruise for 10-15 years." (10/2017)

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+."

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.

It literally made my heart rate increase. From 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre brought up all in demi-muid, it’s going to be over the top for some, yet is an incredible wine that could come from nowhere else. Bravo!" (10/2017)

A blend of 95% Grenache and 5% other permitted varieties, partially destemmed and aged all in concrete, its deep ruby color is followed by awesome notes of blackberry jam, crushed rocks, graphite, and garrigue. A big, rich, unctuous wine, it has beautiful purity, integrated acidity, building tannin, and a great, great finish. I wouldn’t touch bottles for another 4-5 years, but it’s a tour de force in Grenache I wish every reader could taste! This is an estate r ...Read More »

2015 La Ferme du Mont "Vendanges" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

91-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Vendange checks in as a blend of 80% Grenache and 10% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre that was raised mostly in concrete tanks, with just 10% in barrel. Plums, blackberries, licorice, hints of pepper and smoked herbs all emerge from this full-bodied, fruit forward, beautifully textured Châteauneuf du Pape that has solid underlying structure. It will keep for 10-15 years. If you haven’t figured it out yet, Stephane Vedeau’s La Ferme du Mont is one of the up and coming superstars of the Southern Rhône. Moreover, don’t miss his C ...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.

2016 Clos Saint-Jean "Sanctus Sanctorum" Chateauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

97-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Vincent told me that they harvested very late for the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Sanctus Sanctorum, yet there’s absolutely no sense of overripeness or heaviness, and this beauty has everything you could want. Offering a profound nose of blackberries, blueberries, graphite, lead pencil, scorched earth and even a hint of spring flowers, it hits the palate with incredible density and richness that carries an absurd amount of fruit, ripe tannin and a finish that won’t quit. Give this undeniable blockbuster 3-4 years and enjoy over the following 20." (10/2017)

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

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Just sensational, and one of the best examples of this cuvée out there, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc boasts phenomenal notes of orange blossom, salty minerality, caramelized peach, and spice. Rich, full-bodied, unctuous and yet always pure and elegant, it’s one of the finest wines coming from this hallowed appellation." (10/2017) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The family is a great believer in Roussanne as the white grape of the Southern Rhône, and the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc includes 80% of that variety. Waves of honeyed pineapple and tangerine sorbet flood the senses. Thi ...Read More »

2016 Clos Saint-Jean "Combe des Fous" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Combe des Fous is the classic blend of mostly Grenache mixed with a small amount of Syrah and Vaccarèse. It’s a huge, unctuous effort that packs an incredible amount of blackcurrants, garrigue, pepper and dried flowers into its balanced, elegant, layered personality. It picks up a charcuterie meatiness with time in the glass, as well as the telltale melted licorice characteristic of perfectly ripe Grenache. Count me as a fan and this heavenly juice shouldn’t be missed by any Rhône lover." (10/2017)

2015 Château de Vaudieu Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Wine Spectator: "Richly layered, with hedonistic fig, boysenberry and raspberry confiture flavors that roll over each other while mouthwatering anise, fruitcake and black tea notes chase from behind. Shows loads of heft but remains driven by fresh, deeply inlaid acidity that pulls everything together on the finish. A flashy style and impossible to resist. Best from 2020 through 2040. (JM)" (7/2017) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Vaudieu is on a roll. Even the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is a star, boasting forward aromas of garrigue and ripe raspberries. Full-bodied, richly textured and tannic, this wine w ...Read More »

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 »

2015 Bosquet des Papes "Chante le Merle" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I love the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Chante Le Merle Vieilles Vignes, and it's the most balanced and complete of this estate's 2015s. Garrigue, kirsch, spice, dried earth and garrigue nuances all flow to a full-bodied, supple, beautifully textured red that has classic aromas and flavors, polished, elegant tannin and a great finish. It's approachable today, yet will be even better with short-term cellaring and drink well for a decade or more. The 2015 is 86% Grenache and 7% each of Mourvèdre and Syrah, from 80-90-year-old vines, fermented with 100% whole c ...Read More »

Blackberry, hints of cassis, licorice, toasted spice, and graphite give way to a rich, full-bodied, concentrated barrel sample that has terrific purity and balance. It still plays in the elegant, seamless style of the estate, yet has terrific length. This is another great lineup from Chateau de Vaudieu, who have risen to the top of the heap recently.

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.

All of the samples had inky, purple colors, classic aromatics, good acidity and freshness, and balanced profiles. The Mourvèdre, in particular, was beautiful.
