2015 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc (Elsewhere $36)

93 points Wine Spectator: "Intense, with bitter almond, citrus oil, white peach, nectarine and ginger notes tightly coiled together and driving through the anise- and wet stone-accented finish. (JM, Web-2016)" 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from equal parts Bourboulenc, Clairette, Grenache Blanc and Roussanne, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc is a beauty! Medium-bodied, fresh, elegant and nicely balanced, it sports a very light color, yet has impressive intensity in its crisp peach, spice and mint aromas and flavors.

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

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.

2014 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape is a beautiful wine in the vintage, and Marc compares it to the 2012. I’m not sure I agree, but there’s no denying the quality in this 2014. Sporting a deep ruby color and terrific notes of blackberries, ground herbs, pepper and Provençal s pice, it shows the more forward, charming nature of the vintage and is medium to full-bodied, pure and balanced.

2010 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "The 2010 Beaucastel is a tour de force, brilliantly combining espresso and black olive notes with bright raspberry fruit, while dark earthy notes provide a solid base. The feel on the palate is ample, with tannins that are a bit dusty but not tough or chewy. The long, mouthwatering finish bodes well for the future. Drink now–2030.

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The most masculine and structured of the group, the 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape is locked and loaded, with serious concentration, big tannin and no shortage of length on the finish. Coming from a year that featured a cool summer and then scorching temps around harvest, this beauty doles out loads of creme de cassis, licorice, graphite and crushed rock-like minerality, as well as a seamless, perfectly balanced profile. Give it another 2-3 years and drink it through 2025. (JD)" (8/2014) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Showing beautifully, with intense fig, black currant and boysenberry fruit ...Read More »

2014 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Decanter: "Paul and Vincent Avril, a father and son team, have established themselves as one of the finest producers of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Despite being predominantly Grenache, it is reminiscent of an elegant northern Rhône Syrah with the texture of a Pinot. With a medium bodied intensity, it has a beautiful red fruit expression with some savoury notes. Harmony, finesse and elegance are probably the three words that best describe this beauty. One for the cellar." (11/2016) 93-95 points Vinous: "Deep ruby. Highly perfumed scents of candied dark berries, cola and lavender oil develop a su ...Read More »

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Domaine Bois de Boursan Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Felix is superb. Showing a mature, yet still lively and fruit-driven profile of sweet currants, saddle leather, truffle, and garrigue, it stays beautifully rich and seductive on the palate, with layers of sweet fruit, no hard edges and a great finish. Certainly a ripe vintage, yet everything is perfectly proportioned, the tannins are sweet and it is a joy to drink.

2010 Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Performing considerably better than it did prior to bottling, the 2010 Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape is one of the all-time great Vieux Telegraphes I have tasted in the last 3+ decades. I believe it is even superior to the 2007, which I had several weeks ago. The 2010 boasts a dense purple color along with a sumptuous bouquet of spring flowers, boysenberries, black cherries, black currants, nori (the sushi seaweed wrapper), black olives, licorice and pepper. This full-bodied, meaty, thick, juicy effort possesses a boatload of tannin, but it also h ...Read More »

2009 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Châteauneuf-du-Pape

The very long finish has cut and precision, despite its weight. Should age effortlessly. Best from 2014 through 2035. (JM)" (6/2012) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Starting with the 2009, it is a beautiful Chateauneuf du Pape that shows surprising elegance and polish in the vintage.

2014 Château Beaucastel Roussanne Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Vieilles Vignes

Piecrust and orange sabayon details line the finish. Drink now through 2024. (JM)" (11/2016) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A big step up over the classic cuvee (which isn’t always a given), the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Roussanne Vieilles Vignes is 100% Roussanne from ancient vines, some of which are over 100 years in age.

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. (JM)" (11/2011) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Considered by Paul-Vincent to be a hypothetical blend of the '05 and the '07, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape was showing its Mourvedre component on this occ ...Read More »

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 »

2013 Raymond Usseglio "Cuvée Impériale-Vignes Centenaires" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

2010 Roger Sabon "Prestige" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An absolutely profound offering, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige requires 5-6 years of cellaring given its massive concentration and tannic structure. The wine was relatively closed the day I tasted it, but it did display an inky/purple color along with hints of camphor, graphite, creme de cassis, kirsch, licorice and espresso beans. Full-bodied and moderately tannic with gorgeous freshness, glycerin and a skyscraper-like texture, this superb cuvee should be at its finest between 2018-2030+.

It offers a nearly out of body wine tasting experience.

1999 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A solid step up over the '98, the Close des Papes 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape (one of Paul-Vincent's favorites) offers a more youthful color to go with Burgundian notes of spice, dried flowers, black cherries and licorice. More fresh and lively, with medium to full-bodied richness, it has a youthful feel and has another decade of longevity. (JD)" (9/2015) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Moderately saturated red-ruby. Complex nose melds redcurrant, kirsch, iron, tobacco, mocha and spices. Chewy, intensely flavored and fairly deep, but rather tight following the bottling. As usual for this e ...Read More »

2014 Domaine Charvin Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94-95 points Vinous: "Brilliant ruby-red. Powerful raspberry, floral pastille and Asian spice aromas show outstanding clarity and vivacity. Energetic flavors of red fruit preserves and lavender are given spine and definition by zesty minerality. The floral and red fruit notes carry strongly through a clinging, sharply focused finish framed by smooth, slow-building tannins. This wine is shaping up to be a classic Charvin rendition of Châteauneuf, displaying abundant upfront fruit along with the depth and balance to ensure a long, graceful evolution.

2003 Chapoutier "Croix de Bois" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Reminiscent of a liqueur of herbes de Provence intermixed with notes of saddle leather and licorice, the dark ruby/plum/purple-tinged 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Croix de Bois reeks of herbs, pepper, and spice box. Smelling and tasting this wine is like walking through an open air Provencal market. It is beautifully fragrant, rich, full-bodied, heady, and long. Drink it over the next 15+ years." (2/2006) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Mixed red and dark berry fruit, along with plenty of dark cocoa, mineral and tar notes. Muscular finish shows more pepper, tobacco and structure, with fresh ...Read More »

2007 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "With no Reserve bottling in the vintage, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape incorporates all of the top plots of the estate. An incredible wine that’s always performed brilliantly any time I’ve opened a bottle, it gives up layered, ripe aromas and flavors of black raspberry, crushed violets, black licorice and graphite (the wine see only very old foudre and no new oak? ever) to go with a voluptuous, concentrated and structured personality. While there’s no shortage of tannin here, they’re sweet, polished and integrated. Give it another year or two and drink it ...Read More »

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2007 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (99RP, 97WS, 95ST).

Brought up all in older foudre, it's a blockbuster, almost over-the-top, effort that gives up notes of kirsch, incense, dried flowers, spice and pepper.

2007 Château Simian "Les Grandes Grenachieres d'Hippolyte" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An astonishing effort, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Grandes Grenachieres comes from a combination of Grenache vines planted in 1880, and younger vines planted in 1948. An incredible sleeper of the vintage to the extent anyone can find any of the 350 or so cases produced, it boasts a dense ruby/purple color in addition to an awesome aromatic display of spring flowers, sweet black raspberries and black cherries, and forest floor. The wine possesses amazing density and richness, yet flows across the palate like a delicate ballerina. This incredibly old ...Read More »

2012 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Vinous: "Vivid ruby. Exotic, expansive aromas of fresh red and dark berries, incense, anise and garrigue. Deep, sappy black raspberry and boysenberry flavors show excellent clarity, with a hint of spicecake building in the glass. Nicely balances power and finesse and shows outstanding vivacity. A smoky mineral note adds lift and cut to the long, fruit-driven finish, which shows just a hint of silky tannins. (JR)" (4/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A classic wine from this estate, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape has beautiful kirsch, roasted meat, ground pepper and assorted wild herbs and laven ...Read More »

2010 Château de Beaucastel "Hommage à Jacques Perrin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tight, dense and backward, the 2010 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage À Jacques Perrin was one of the least approachable wines in the lineup, yet certainly has incredible potential. Offering lots of liquid minerality, crushed rock, blueberry, truffle and cassis, it’s massive and concentrated on the palate, with building tannin, good acidity and a firm, focused feel that begs for cellaring. Hide these in the cellar for another decade. Coming mostly from a plot of old vines located behind the estate, the Perrin Family’s Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage à Jacques Per ...Read More »

2007 Domaine de Ferrand Châteauneuf-du-Pape

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An amazing effort, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape eclipses what I wrote about it last year. Every time I went back to it, the wine revealed more nuances as well as greater depth. Full-bodied and powerful, it exhibits a compelling bouquet of creme de cassis, ground pepper, incense, seaweed, garrigue, and licorice. The knock-out aromatics are followed by a wine with colossal richness, a multilayered texture, no sense of heaviness, an incredibly deep, penetrating palate feel, and a finish that goes on for 50+ seconds. Philippe Bravay is one of the most modest ...Read More »

2010 Château de Beaucastel "Hommage à Jacques Perrin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L)

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "No such issue exists with the perfect 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage a Jacques Perrin. I don't know what more a wine could offer. Inky blue/purple, with an extraordinary nose of smoked duck, grilled steaks, Provencal herbs, blackberries, blueberries, kirsch, licorice and truffle, enormously massive, concentrated, full-bodied and built for 30-50 years of cellaring, this wine, which is dominated by its Mourvedre component, is a tour de force, a spectacular, world-class wine. It is going to require some patience, though, and seems to need 4-5 years of cel ...Read More »
