94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One surprise to emerge from this blind tasting was the super performance of Chante Cigale's 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape. This full-bodied blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault boasts wonderfully supple, creamy tannins, raspberry and cherry fruit, and a dusting of cinnamon and allspice on the long, dusty finish.

Kirsch, loads of black and blue fruits, flowers and lavender notes all emerge from this full-bodied 2015 that has fine, fine tannin, solid mid-palate depth and a great finish.

Super-rich with layers of glycerin and fruit, this full-bodied classic smells like a Provencal open-air fruit and vegetable market.

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+ points. (JebDunnuck.com)" (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 P ...Read More »

2016 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (6-pack OWC) (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the reds, I was able to taste all of the components of the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape and this will unquestionably be another terrific vintage from this estate. All of the samples had inky, purple colors, classic aromatics, good acidity and freshness, and balanced profiles. The Mourvèdre, in particular, was beautiful. (JebDunnuck.com)" (10/2017) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "No surprise, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape takes the quality of the Coudoulet and ratchets it up a notch (or two!). I tasted the preliminary blend from foudre and was blown away by its potential. At 35% Mour ...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.

2015 Roger Sabon "Réserve" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Réserve comes from two terroirs: la Crau and la Grenade. It’s aged 60% in foudre and the rest in larger oak tanks. Elegant, medium to full-bodied, with ripe tannic structure, it has lots of scorched earth, darker berry fruits, smoked herbs and licorice aromas and flavors. It’s not a massive wine, but it shines for its purity and length. (JD)" (10/2016) 91-93 points Vinous: "Vibrant ruby. Energetic red and dark berry aromas are complemented by suggestions of candied flowers, licorice and incense. J ...Read More »

2014 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

93 points Wine Spectator: "A gutsy style, with a frame of brick dust around a core of steeped cherry, plum and blackberry fruit. The back end pulls in dried sage, savory and tobacco notes. The finish lingers over a singed chestnut hint. Rock-solid and unabashedly old-school. Best from 2020 through 2030. (JM)" (5/2017) 91 points James Suckling: "A wild, rustic edge to this assertive and punchy fruit-driven Châteauneuf-du-Pape. A smooth black cherry and blood plum-flavored palate. Appealing tangy freshness to close. The rusticity denotes drink now or as a much older wine." (8/2017) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As to the 2014 Châteauneuf du P ...Read More »

Rich, full-bodied, unctuous and yet always pure and elegant, it’s one of the finest wines coming from this hallowed appellation."

2016 Bosquet des Papes "Tradition" Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Starting out, the estate made a terrific white and their 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc is based on Clairette, Grenache Blanc, and Bourboulenc. It offers textbook notes of white peach, spice, buttered citrus and hints caramelized pineapple in a clean, refreshing, balanced style that’s going to drink beautifully for 4-5 years (and longer I suspect).

2016 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the grand vin, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is backward and dense, with a huge mid-palate, notes of framboise, black cherries, roasted herbs, nori, and spice, a thick, opulent texture, and yet no sense of weight or heaviness. With ripe, polished tannin and a blockbuster finish, it might just be the greatest wine from this estate to date.

Everything is in lockstep through the finish, where buried minerality adds the final touch. (JM)" (7/2017) 93-95 points Vinous: "Lurid ruby. Ripe cherry and dark berries on the explosively perfumed nose, complicated by hints of smoky minerals, incense and potpourri.
