2015 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

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+" (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 Pape.

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. The property has been in the family since the 19th century and is currently run by Alexandre Favier, who assumed the reins at the ripe old age of 20!

2015 Baron de Montfaucon Châteauneuf-du-Pape

91 points Wine Spectator: "Youthfully taut, with singed alder and cedar notes framing the core of red currant and cherry fruit paste flavors. Light savory and sanguine accents emerge steadily through the finish. A light echo of brick dust at the end keeps this in the old-school camp. Best from 2018 through 2025.

It's about 85% Grenache, with the balance made up of Mourvèdre, Counoise and Cinsault. What makes it so compelling is the combination of fragrant raspberries, sinewy tannins and silky finish, all of which suggest it will age well for 20 years after the vintage.

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.

A blend of 60% Grenache, 25% Mourvèdre and the rest Counoise, Vaccarèse and Muscardin, it offers a huge nose of blackberry jam, garrigue, crushed violets, and incense. Ripe, unctuous and opulent, yet not over the top, it reminds me of the Trois Source cuvée from Vieille Julienne.

2009 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The bottled 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee is as compelling as I thought it would be after tasting it last year. A blend of 85% Grenache with the rest Syrah, Mourvedre and small dollops of the other authorized varietals, this wine tends to come from the estate’s holdings in the eastern sector of Chateauneuf du Pape. The opaque purple-colored 2009 exhibits magnificent, rich berry fruit intertwined with cedar, Christmas fruitcake, licorice, charcuterie, roasted meats, smoked duck, kirsch, blackberries and god knows what else. It is an amazingly co ...Read More »

2015 Clos Saint-Jean "Combe des Fous" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Combe des Fous shows the seamless, silky side to the vintage, and has closed down slightly since I tasted it from barrel. Its big, intense nose of black cherries, blueberries, white chocolate, and garrigue gives way to a full-bodied, plush, gorgeously layered 2015 that will benefit from 2-4 years of cellaring. (JebDunnuck.com)" (10/2017) 93-95 points Vinous: "Opaque ruby. Intensely perfumed aromas of ripe dark berries, candied lavender, cola and white pepper, accompanied by a hint of musky earth in the background. Juicy and broad on the palate, offe ...Read More »

2015 Isabel Ferrando "Colombis" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Top Pick!
2015 Isabel Ferrando "Colombis" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From some of the appellation's cooler sites and 60- to 80-year-old vines, the 100% Grenache 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Colombis is a stunner. It has a true sense of garrigue, along with dark fruit, peppery spice and rich, velvety tannins. I wouldn't turn down a glass now, but it should be even better in a few years' time. (JC)" (10/2017) 95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Colombis is a more open, sexy wine based on very old vine Grenache from the sandy soils of the Colombis, Cristia and Rayas lieux-dits. Framboise, incense, potpourri and floral notes all emerge fr ...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 »

1998 Lucien et Andre Brunel "Les Cailloux" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full bright, deep red. Knockout, pinot-like aromas of strawberry, cherry, blood orange and flowers, complicated by a smoky minerality and a building peppery quality. Wonderfully elegant and silky wine, with perfectly integrated acidity giving it noteworthy energy. This saturates the palate without leaving any sense of undue weight. Showed some superripe notes as it opened in the glass, but without losing its shape or grip.)" (5/2009) 89 points Wine Spectator: "Mature and ready to drink, showing spice, plum sauce and raspberry ganache, with a hint of cocoa on the silky finish. Elegan ...Read More »

2015 Roger Sabon "Prestige" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Prestige checks in as a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and the balance a mix of permitted varieties. Like the other cuvées, it’s completely destemmed and aged in a mix of larger foudre, demi-muids and tronconique tanks. Voluptuous, full-bodied, gorgeously polished and pure, with ultra-fine tannin, it has beautiful Grenache fruit, lots of pepper and underbrush nuances, a great mid-palate and a big finish. More nuanced and elegant than outright powerful, it's going to evolve gracefully on its balance and purity. (JebDunnuck.c ...Read More »

2012 Clos Saint-Jean "Combe des Fous" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2012 Châteauneuf-du-Pape la Combe des Fous is more elegant and silky, with full-bodied notes of crème de cassis and black raspberry fruits intermixed with loads of spice, incense, and dried flowers. More approachable and seamless than the Deus Ex Machina, it’s nevertheless powerful and concentrated, with fine, elegant tannin. It’s another awesome wine from the Maurel brothers and consultant Philippe Cambie that will keep for another 15+ years." (2/2018) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape la Combe des Fous is another gorgeous wine from this estate that offers ...Read More »

2012 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Laurence" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Wine Spectator: "A throwback style and proud of it, with warm chestnut and bay leaf notes taking the lead, followed quickly by worn leather and smoldering tobacco accents. The core of dark currant, warmed cherry and mulled blackberry lies in reserve for now, while the finish lets singed iron and brick dust details hold sway. Just wait for everything to pull together in the cellar. Best from 2020 through 2032. (JM)" (3/2017) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Pegau's Cuvée Laurence is aged in wood for longer than the Cuvée Resérvée, but is otherwise nearly identical. The 2012 version is full-bodied, dense an ...Read More »

2015 Chateau de Vaudieu "Amiral G" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "My favorite in the lineup is the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Amiral G., and like all the cuvées here, it has a voluptuous, sexy, yet elegant style. Black raspberries, framboise, spice-box, and floral notes all give way to a full-bodied, powerful, yet incredibly elegant Châteauneuf that has a weightless texture and a blockbuster finish. It's already drinking nicely, yet should cruise for a decade. This is another great lineup from Chateau de Vaudieu, who have risen to the top of the heap recently. They make a perfumed, elegant style of wine, and have started ...Read More »
