2012 Bosquet des Papes "Tradition" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bottled in March, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape is ripe, textured and downright sexy wine that has overflowing notes of sweet cherries, raspberry, chocolate and spice all emerging from the glass. This full-bodied, dense, concentrated and layered effort is one of the top efforts in the vintage, and will have upward of two decade of longevity. In my view, no estate has made more qualitative gains in the past 3-4 years than Bosquet des Papes. I still remember being floored by the quality of their 2010s, and they've almost matched those efforts with these inc ...Read More »

2007 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "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 mouthfeel, and enormous length an ...Read More »

2012 Domaine de la Mordorée "Reine des Bois" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the blockbusters in the vintage, the inky-colored 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape La Reine des Bois – 80% Grenache, completely destemmed and aged 12 months in 80% stainless steel and 20% old barrels – offers fantastic richness and depth in its blackberry liqueur, graphite, wood smoke and crushed-rock-like aromas and flavors. An elegant, stylish and polished example of this cuvée, it comes closest in my mind to a lighter-weight 2010. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and with fine tannin, it will drink well for 10-15 years. (JD)" (10/2014) 93-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby.

2012 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Jancis Robinson: "Dark and ripe with some savoury character. A cool finish and both very round and mineral. Interesting wine!" Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The straight Châteauneuf du Pape (65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre and 5% Cinsault) comes mostly from rolled-pebble terroir, yet also has a fair chunk from sandy soils as well. A beautiful traditional cuvee, it gives up notions of sweet black cherries, leafy herbs, olive and underbrush to go with a medium-bodied, elegant and textured mouthfeel. Leaning more toward the pretty, finesse-driven end of the spectrum, it drinks beautifully today, but ...Read More »

Lush and pliant, offering juicy red fruit and lavender pastille flavors that become spicier with air. Silky tannins add grip and shape to the long, spice-accented finish, which shows superb clarity and thrust.

Silky, sweet and open-knit, offering intense black raspberry and lavender pastille flavors that put on weight as the wine opens up.

2007 Domaine de la Jaufrette Châteauneuf-du-Pape

According to the importer, Paris Wine Company: "The wines of Domaine de la Jaufrette are resolutely old-fashioned, as the domaine has refused to change the winemaking style since the André and Paulette Chastan moved to Orange in the 1950s. The couple both came from winemaking families in the Southern Rhone (André from Vaqueyras, Paulette from Gigondas), but they wanted to create their own doamine, so as a young married couple, they purchased land just on the edge of Chateauneuf-du-Pape and planted 5 hectares of Cotes-du-Rhone.

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "A big, rich wine with huge amounts of fruit oozing out of the glass. Great concentration and intensity, with licorice flavors from the Mourvèdre, finishing with chewy tannins. A great year for this wine, which should age well for 15 to 20 years." (12/2001)95 points Wine Spectator: "Very youthful, with a juicy blast of red plum and fig fruit flavors on a racy frame, this also has plenty of spice, tar, plum cake and mineral in reserve, as the finish shows more structure and slowly darkens with time in the glass.

Hefty, but suave and seamless. The finish lets graphite and licorice elements glide through. The structure is dense, polished and perfectly integrated, resulting in lovely length. Should be a beauty after cellaring. Best from 2017 through 2032."

Chocolate-laced fruits, cured meats, spice, crushed rock and sweet spice all show from this perfumed, up-front, sweetly fruited Chateauneuf, and it still has a core of concentrated fruit and solid tannin structure.

Dense and grippy, showing a slightly old-school shading. Should cellar well. Best from 2016 through 2030." (11/2014)93 points Antonio Galloni: "Opaque ruby. An intensely perfumed bouquet evokes spicy dark berries and potpourri, with zesty mineral and incense qualities adding complexity. Pliant boysenberry and candied lavender flavors are impressively fresh and focused, with a hint of licorice adding depth. Closes ...Read More »

2008 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Laurence" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Just hitting the market, the 2008 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Laurence is one of the candidates for the wine of the vintage. Copious aromas of charcuterie, smoked duck, Chinese hoisin sauce, kirsch, black currants and black tea jump from the glass of this dense, full-bodied, rich, concentrated, impressive wine. (RP)" (10/2012)93 points Antonio Galloni: "Vivid ruby. Complex bouquet of fresh red fruits, blood orange and floral oils, with a mineral element adding lift. Graceful and focused on the palate, offering gently sweet raspberry and lavender pastille flavors that deepen and become ...Read More »

2013 Château de Beaucastel "Vieilles Vignes" Roussanne Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Similar in color to the classic white, the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Roussanne Vieilles Vignes is deeper and richer, with more viscosity, glycerin and minerality. Loaded with notes of buttered citrus, flowers, orange marmalade and crushed-rock nuances, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied power, juicy, lively acidity and terrific length. Like the classic white, this does not go through malolactic fermentation, but sees slightly more oak (some new) in its élevage, which always gives it slightly more richness, as well as hints of vanilla in its yout ...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 »

2006 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As I stated last year, there is no Hommage a Jacques Perrin in 2006, but Beaucastel’s 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape is performing even better from bottle than it did last year. Its dense plum/ruby/purple color is followed by a big, sweet perfume of black truffles, camphor, earth, incense, new saddle leather, and loads of peppery, blackberry, and herb-infused, meaty, black cherry fruit. Deep, full-bodied, and dense, with sweet tannin, this explosively rich Chateauneuf is a stronger effort than the 2005, 2004, or 2003. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028." (10/2008) ...Read More »

2012 Domaine de la Cote de L'Ange "Tradition" Chateauneuf-du-Pape

91 points Wine Spectator: "A dark, slightly brawny style, with fig and plum fruit studded with licorice root, Turkish coffee and tar notes. Sage, bay leaf and lavender details line the fleshy finish. Drink now through 2022." (10/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape checks in as a blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 15% Mourvedre that’s aged in a combination of foudre and tronconique tanks. It has classic and old-school notes of ground pepper, saddle leather, garrigue and bouquet garni to go with a medium-bodied, tight, firm and tannic feel on the palate. I like the ripeness here thou ...Read More »

1998 Roger Sabon "Cuvée Prestige" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Back In Stock!
1998 Roger Sabon "Cuvée Prestige" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Wine Spectator: "Showing more maturity than most, with colors of garnet and brick and aromas of brick dust and sandalwood. But don't be fooled, this still has a solid core of sweet cherry, currant and brandy-soaked plum fruit, layered with sweet spice, tobacco and mineral notes that drive the structured finish. Tender for the most part, but with some latent grip, this is a lovely version of the traditional style." (9/2007)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sabon’s 1998 Cuvee Prestige has reached full maturity. Dark plum/garnet, with notes of smoked duck, garrigue, licorice, cedar, and blue and black fruits ...Read More »

2012 Domaine Grand Veneur "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is in the top 2-3 wines in the vintage. Possessing rock-star concentration and depth, full-bodied richness and loads of sweet tannin, it offers layers of ripe blackberry, graphite, licorice and toasted-spice aromas and flavors. One of the more powerful and structured efforts in the vintage, it nevertheless always stays balanced, graceful and light on the palate. Give it 2-3 years and enjoy bottles through 2027. (JD)" (10/2014)93 points Antonio Galloni: "Opaque ruby. Highly perfumed bouquet of ripe dark berries, potpourri and sandalwood, w ...Read More »

2012 Chateau de Vaudieu "Val de Dieu" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A knockout bottle of wine, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Val de Dieu is made from 78% Grenache, 13% Syrah and 9% Mourvedre, is completely destemmed, and aged 18 months in new demi-muid, of which every trace is soaked up. Showing fabulous sweetness and purity on the nose, with black raspberry, black cherry liqueur, crushed flowers, white pepper and hints of licorice, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, solid mid-palate depth and ultra-fine tannin. I think it will age beautifully, but given its polish and seamlessness, it’s a superb drin ...Read More »

2011 Domaine de la Janasse "Chaupin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Coming from a cooler, sandy terroir in the northeastern part of the appellation, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Chaupin (which comes 80% from the Chaupoin lieu-dit and 20% from the La Janasse lieu-dit, hence the subtle name change) is 100% Grenache, from vines planted in 1912, that’s aged two-thirds in foudre and one-third in demi-muid. Gorgeous all around, with plenty of similarities to the traditional cuvee, yet slightly richer and fuller, it delivers beautiful mulled red and black fruits, licorice, spice and tinges of stony minerality on the nose. ...Read More »

1998 Paul Autard "La Côte Ronde" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

97 points Wine Spectator: "Fantastic red. Big-bodied, velvety and suave, with mocha, spice and gorgeous ripe fruit, it walks a thin line between modern and traditional, delivering mineral and terroir quality thanks to its great concentration. The fruit and tannins are so sweet. Tempting now. Best from 2005 through 2030." (12/2000)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It often has an abundance of pain grille and smoky, oaky notes in its youth, but that has all been integrated into the wine at age 12. This wine is fully mature, displaying beautiful, sweet notes of black currants, kirsch, lavender, Provencal herbs, and a ...Read More »
