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."

2012 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $80)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of my favorite wines, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Réservée is a classic. Beautiful on the nose, with notions of ground pepper, wild herbs, minerality and smoked plum and dark fruit, it’s medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and has plenty of tannin that comes through on the finish. Similar in style to a lighter-weight 2010, drink this beauty anytime over the coming 12-15 years. (JD)" (10/2014) 93 points Vinous: "Opaque ruby.

2014 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I love the traditional 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc and this blend of equal parts Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc and Clairette offers classic notes of citrus blossom, dried herbs, spice and hints of white flowers on the nose. 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)

Spicy, sweet and penetrating, showing excellent depth to its black raspberry and floral pastille flavors, which spread out nicely on the back half. Pure, focused and seamless in texture, finishing with outstanding thrust and spicy persistence. (JR)" (4/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "92+ points.

2013 Domaine Grand Veneur "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $80)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In the top 1-2 wines of the vintage, the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a Mourvedre shifted blend of 40% Grenache, 40% Mourvedre and 20% Syrah that saw 16 months in 60% small barrels, with the balance in concrete tanks. There’s just over 400 cases produced and this inky colored, beautifully concentrated effort offers loads of roasted meats, licorice, chocolate and sweet black fruits.

It shows the purity and balance of the vintage, and will dish out loads of pleasure over the coming decade or more.(JD) In case you haven’t been following any of the Wine Advocate reports over the past decade, Domaine de La Janasse, under the leadership of siblings Christophe and I ...Read More »

2010 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne "Les Trois Sources" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Trois Sources comes from the estate's vineyards planted in sandy soils. About 10,000 bottles have been produced. One of the great wines of the vintage, this unbelievable Chateauneuf is still extremely young and primary. Its opaque purple color is followed by scents of ink, acacia flowers, blueberries, black raspberries and blackberries. While full-bodied, extremely concentrated and massive, the wine is totally harmonious with beautifully integrated acidity, tannin and alcohol (which is no doubt in excess of 16%).

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 ...

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."

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 »

2014 Chante Cigale "l'Extrait" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc

Jancis Robinson: "Tasted blind. Greenish straw. Honeyed, rather succulent nose with an interesting green streak to it. Not the weightiest but well balanced with a fruity core." (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.

Supple, open-knit and appealingly sweet, with a hint of white pepper sharpening the zesty redcurrant and raspberry flavors. The spicy quality repeats on the clinging finish, which shows just hint of dusty tannins. I suspect that this wine will provide plenty of appeal soon after release.

2013 Domaine Saint Prefert "Classique" Chateauneuf-du-Pape

Shows very good clarity and lift on the palate, with sweet raspberry and rose pastille flavors sharpened by a jolt of blood orange. This supple, open-knit wine is firmed on the back by smooth tannins and should be delicious right out of the gate.

2013 Olivier Hillaire "Les Petits Pieds d'Armand" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $70)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Similar to the classic cuvée, only richer, the 2013 Chateauneuf du Papes Les Petits Pieds d’Armand (100% Grenache from the sandy parts of La Crau) knocks it out of the park with its Bing cherry, kirsch, red licorice and floral aromas and flavors. It’s medium to full-bodied, voluptuous and textured, all while staying nicely focused and elegant. There’s enough sweet tannin here to allow it to evolve gracefully, but the overall feel is one of upfront fruit and texture. (JD)" (10/2014)

Full-bodied, concentrated and layered, it's perfectly balanced and never puts a foot wrong. It will benefit from short-term cellaring, but should be approachable at an earlier age than the 2010, and have 20 years of overall longevity. (JD)" (9/2015)

Incorporating more Mourvèdre than normal (a blend of 55% Grenache and 45% Mourvèdre), this smokin’ southern Rhône sports a deep ruby/purple color to go with notes of blackcurrants, white pepper, orange liqueur and graphite.

(JS)" (10/2011) 93 points Vinous: "(65% grenache, 15% each of mourvedre and syrah, and the rest all the other varieties; aged in a combination of foudres and concrete): Bright ruby. Intense red fruit and potpourri aromas show excellent precision and a suave, spicy character. Licorice and lavender nuances add c ...Read More »

2011 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Laurence" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Wine Spectator: "*Collectibles* A solidly grippy, old-school version, with lots of brick dust, roasted chestnut and fresh tobacco leaf notes coating the core of steeped plum, raspberry and black cherry fruit. Offers a broad and woodsy feel through the finish, with singed cedar and juniper details pumping throughout, delivering ample flesh and fruit for balance. This has grip to burn and should cruise in the cellar. (JM)" (2/2016) 93 points Vinous: "Bright ruby-red. A highly perfumed and complex bouquet evokes mineral-accented dried cherries, raspberry liqueur, garrigue and potpourri. Sweet, ...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 »

2010 Domaine Galevan "Saint Georges" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape St.-Georges possesses magnificent fruit in addition to a skyscraper-like mouthfeel, majestic richness, a layered texture, phenomenal purity and a classic style displaying plenty of bouquet garni, licorice, seaweed, cassis and kirsch characteristics. This sensational 2010 is soft enough to be drunk now, but will be even better with 2-3 years of cellaring. It should last for two decades. A microscopic estate owned by Coralie Goumarre, Domaine Galevan was established, remarkably, in 1780, but the first estate-bottled wine did no ...Read More »

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 Les Cailloux (Lucien et André Brunel) "Cuvée Centenaire" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Two brilliant successes are Brunel’s cuvees of 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape. His limited cuvee of approximately 500 cases of the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Centenaire (made from 80% Grenache aged in foudre, and the balance Syrah and Mourvedre aged in one- to three-year-old small barrels) comes primarily from a parcel of 120-year-old vines in the northern part of the appellation in the lieu-dit known as Farguerol. This cuvee has only been made in vintages such as 1989, 1990, 1995, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2006, and now 2007. Deep ruby/purple in color ...Read More »

2013 Domaine de Ferrand Châteauneuf-du-Pape

92-94 points Vinous: "Saturated ruby. Complex, highly perfumed scents of fresh red and dark berries, incense and Asian spices, with a smoky nuance gaining power as the wine opens with air. Supple and expansive on the palate, offering sweet black raspberry and floral pastille flavors that display excellent clarity and well as depth. Rich yet lithe wine, with outstanding finishing focus and length and supple, even, late-arriving tannins. (JR)" (2/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The only 2013 presented (I reviewed his two Côtes du Rhône from barrel last year) and a pretty, perfumed wine from Bravey, the 20 ...Read More »

2013 Chapelle Saint-Theodoric "La Guigasse" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

About the producer: "Chapelle St. Theodoric is not a domain in the usual sense of the word. The grapes for the wine come from 3 ha of AOP Chateauneuf du Pape since 2009 belonging to the american wine importer Peter Weygandt. The cultivation of the vines and the winemaking is done by the team at Domaine de Christia. The 3 ha are situated at two lieux-dits Guigasse and Pignan both areas where the soil is sandy and nearly without stones. All parcels contain only Grenache Noir with an average age of 50 years - some vines are up to one hundred years old. The ... Read More »

2013 Château de Beaucastel "Hommage à Jacques Perrin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage a Jacques Perrin is a beast of a wine that’s shed most of the baby fat it showed from barrel. A normal blend of 60% Mourvèdre, 20% Grenache, and the rest Syrah and Counoise, this tiny production release has incredible minerality to go with searing black and blue fruits, forest floor, smoked earth and leather. Full-bodied, inky, concentrated and backwards with a serious kick of tannin, it will need a decade of cellaring to be approachable. I suspect it will have 2-3 decades of longevity.

2003 Domaine Bois de Boursan "Cuvée des Félix" Chateauneuf-du-Pape

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. A blend of 65% Grenache and the balance a mix of Mourvedre and Syrah, from 90-year-old vines, it held up beautifully with air and ...Read More »
