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."

2007 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

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."

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 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)

2009 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... Today, the Domaine de la Jaufrette is run by Alain’s son Frederic, who has maintained the same traditional winemaking philosophy. Vinification is a slow process - the fermentation occurs naturally in large concrete tanks, where the wine is allowed to sit for up to a year. It is then aged in a mix of used foudres and ...

(11/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Starting with the whites and made from 60% Roussanne and 40% Grenache Blanc that was raised in one- to three-year-old demi-muids, the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc Extrait (Roussanne) is racy and lean, with pretty notes of buttered citrus, honeysuckle and toasted bread.

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.

Kirsch, licorice, garrigue and sweet spice all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced 2006. It benefits from a short decant, and while showing plenty of maturity, it will evolve gracefully for at least another decade.

2012 Domaine la Barroche "Signature" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing slightly better now than it did on release (which is common for all of Julien's wines, and the '12s in general), the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Signature is a blend of 65% Grenache, 16% Mourvedre, 13% Syrah and 6% other permitted varieties. It's young and fruity, yet still delivers tons of pleasure with its cassis, licorice, crushed flower and garrigue aromas and flavors. Beautifully fruited, rounded, supple and with sweet tannin, I suspect it will age gracefully (similar to '06) and drink well for all its life. (JD)" (9/2015) 92 points Vinous: "Deep ruby. Heady spice- ...Read More »

2007 Domaine de la Janasse "XXL" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A curiosity is the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape XXL, a blend of 95% Grenache and 5% Mourvedre that fermented for nearly three years. Bottled earlier this year, it reminds me of some of the Cuvee Speciales that Henri Bonneau made, particularly the 1990 and 1998. One would think it might taste like an Amarone, but in fact, it doesn’t. It is a very thick, unctuously-textured, over-the-top wine with unbelievable concentration that is technically dry, even though the alcohol level is extraordinarily high. Only 1,400 bottles were produced. Several California Rhone ...Read More »

2003 Domaine du Clos du Caillou "Les Quartz" Châteaunuef-du-Pape

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As expected, the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Quartz is a ripe, exuberant effort. Plum, figs, licorice, roasted herbs and roasted meats are just some of the nuances here, and it has full-bodied richness, good concentration and sweet tannin. Drink it over the coming couple of years. (JD)" (8/2014) 91-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Soaring aromas of red berries, Asian spices and pungent rose oil. Thick and creamy on the palate, with flavors of kirsch, spicy strawberry and plum jam. This is carrying about 16% alcohol but it's detectible only in a bit of warmth on the finish. (JR) ...Read More »

2010 La Celestiere "Tradition" Chateauneuf-du-Pape

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 70% Grenache and the rest Mourvedre, Cinsault and other varietals, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition exhibits a classic Provencal nose of roasted herbs, kirsch liqueur, lavender, forest floor and balsam wood. It is an impressively built, concentrated, deep ruby/purple-colored effort that should drink well for 10-15 years. (RP)" (10/2012) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright purple. Aromas and flavors of black raspberry and blueberry with spice and floral notes adding complexity. Juicy and focused, with very good finishing clarity and lingering floral and spicecake nuanc ...Read More »

2000 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The opaque ruby/purple-colored 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape offers a profoundly sweet perfume of melted licorice, blackberries, and black cherries backed up by loads of glycerin, full body, and moderately high but sweet, well-integrated tannin. There is a seamlessness to the 2000 that will make it accessible early in life, and thus atypical for Beaucastel. The 1985 behaved in this manner when young, but the 2000 possesses even more stuffing. Like its 2001 sibling, it is a classic blend of 30% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, 10% Counoise, and the balance ...Read More »

1998 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

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." (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. Only just starting to hit its stride. (JM)" (9/2007) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The atypically Grenache-dominated 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape is fully mature and gives up ton ...Read More »

2008 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Wine Spectator: "Dark, inviting and very alluring, with captivating black tea, charred mesquite and kirsch aromas and flavors allied to a remarkably silky mouthfeel. Superlong, with mineral, violet, pepper and additional crushed cherry and plum fruit notes all gliding through the finish. Best from 2011 through 2027. (JM)" (10/2010) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Vincent Avril fashioned one of the finest 2008 Chateauneuf du Papes of the appellation. Made from a classic blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah and the rest an assortment of permitted varietals, it exhibits a dark color as well as a ...Read More »

2003 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "While I've always loved the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape, it was extremely controversial in its youth due to its exuberance and ripeness. Yet today, with the wine at maturity, all of that controversy has been put to bed and I know of no one contesting the beauty of this wine - the 2007 vintage in Chateauneuf du Pape will be the same. Looking at the 2003 vintage, Paul-Vincent told me that they started harvest on September 5, but quickly had to stop due to rain on the September 7. They waited for the vineyards to dry out and the last plots weren't brought in u ...Read More »

2003 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* One of the big names of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and this wine justifies the fame of the Perrin family’s property. It is a rich style, but, more importantly, it is beautifully made, structured, dense, with red jelly fruits, a touch of vanilla and a fat, full-bodied, but firm aftertaste. This is a wine for aging—give it at least five years before touching it. (RV)" (12/2005) 94 points Wine Spectator: "*Highly Recommended* Young and tight, with garrigue and roasted game aromas peeking out from a core of ripe black currant, plum and fig fruit. Lots of toast tobacco and ir ...Read More »
