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.

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.

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 »

2007 Domaine de la Charbonnière "Les Hauts Brusquières Cuvée Spéciale" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine is composed of a selection the Maret family makes from their holdings in one of the great sites in all of Chateauneuf du Pape, the lieux-dit known as La Crau. The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Hautes Brusquieres Cuvee Speciale is a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah. The Grenache is aged in large oak foudres and most of the Syrah in smaller barrels. This fabulous, inky/ruby/purple-tinged wine offers up sweet, jammy aromas of black raspberries, licorice, truffles, underbrush, and Provencal herbs. It is the deepest colored of these four wines, an ...Read More »

2010 Domaine de la Charbonniere "Les Hauts Brusquieres Cuvée Speciale" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The sensational 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Hautes Brusquieres Cuvee Speciale explodes from the glass with aromas of roasted Provencal herbs/garrigue, cassis, blackberries, kirsch, loamy earth, and a subtle nuance of spring flowers. Full-bodied with superb definition, massive fruit concentration and a long finish displaying dazzling purity, texture and length, this sensational wine is one of the finest wines Domaine de la Charbonniere has yet produced. It should age gracefully for two decades. (RP)" (10/2012) 94 points Wine Spectator: "A very lively, energetic style, with lots of bramb ...Read More »

2001 Domaine Grand Veneur "Les Origines" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Robert Parker: "...exhibits an even more saturated ruby/purple color as well as glorious aromas of acacia flowers, blackberries, licorice, chocolate, and kirsch liqueur. With fabulous richness and purity, medium to full body, undeniable elegance for its size, and a long, textured multidimensional finish, it is the finest Les Origines Alain Jaume has yet produced. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2016."

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+. (RP)" (10/2012) 95 points Wine Spectator: "This has power and guile, with dens ...Read More »

2010 Domaine de la Janasse "Tradition" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape is the most widely available (nearly 30,000+ bottles produced even in a small vintage such as 2010) of Janasse's Chateauneufs. It exhibits a dense purple color along with a glorious perfume of blackberries, creosote, scorched earth, smoked herbs, cassis and kirsch. Full-bodied with impressive purity, structure and precision, this is a more reserved, backward and structured effort than its 2009 and 2007 counterparts." (10/2012) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark purple. Aromas and flavors of cherry compote, black raspberry and candied flowers. Densely pack ...Read More »

2012 Raymond Usseglio "Cuvée Impériale" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "My favorite of the lineup, and one of the top Châteauneufs in the vintage, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Imperiale is 95% Grenache (5% other varieties) that comes from 100-year-old vines and the pure sand soils of the Piallon (near Rayas) and Girardette (near Charbonnière) lieux-dits. It offers awesome black and blue fruits, violets, licorice and crushed rock-like minerality in its full-bodied, balanced, pure and elegant profile. Impressively concentrated, inky colored and with sweet tannin, it’s capable of evolving for 12-15 years or more. (JD)" (10/2014) ...Read More »

2009 Clos Saint Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sleeper of the vintage, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape is much less expensive than the other cuvees and represents a noteworthy buy. Classic kirsch liqueur, roasted Provencal herb and sandy, loamy soil characteristics are found in this dense, opulent, voluptuously textured wine that is on a much faster evolutionary track than the 2010. It should drink well for a decade." (10/2011) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Ripe black raspberry and cherry on the fragrant nose. Spicy and precise on entry, then deeper in the mid-palate, offering pliant red and dark berry preserves flavo ...Read More »

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 »
