2016 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (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."

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! The domaine is planted to 40 ha of red and 5 ha of white on 45 differe... Read More »

2016 Bosquet des Papes "A la Glorie de Mon Grand Père" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Made from 100% Grenache that was partially destemmed, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape A La Gloire de Mon Grand-Père is straight up awesome looking barrel sample. Sporting a deep ruby color and perfumed notes of strawberries, incense, Asian spices and dried garrigue, this beauty is full-bodied, layered, and opulent on the palate, yet with no weight and a graceful, balanced style. It has fine tannins which are still mostly covered by loads of fruit at this stage. It’s going to be hard to resist on release, yet should have two decades of longevity." (10/2017)

2016 Chateau Sixtine Chateauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The flagship is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Château Sixtine, and it's a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre brought up in barrel. Black and blue fruits, graphite, licorice and pot roast like nuances all emerge from this huge, unctuous, concentrated beauty that tick s all the pleasure boxes. Despite its richness level, it stays balanced and pure. Reminding me slightly of an improved 2003, don't miss it." (10/2017) Jancis Robinson: "50% Grenache, 25% Mourvèdre, 25% Syrah. Cask sample.

Big, rich, unctuous and layered, yet still fine and finesse-driven, drink this full-bodied powerhouse anytime over the coming decade or more."

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.

2016 Domaine de la Janasse "Chaupin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

97-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Made with close to 50% stems (the highest in a while) and brought up in foudre and demi-muids (20% new), the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Chaupin sports deep ruby/purple color as well as sensational notes of kirsch liqueur, black raspberries, crushed flowers, crushed rocks, and incense. Just a huge, rich, unctuous wine, it offers everything you could want from Grenache and is certainly going to challenge the 2007 and 2010 as the greatest expression of this terroir to date."

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

With ripe, polished tannin and a blockbuster finish, it might just be the greatest wine from this estate to date." (10/2017) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In contrast to the Piedlong, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is a darker, richer wine.

2016 Bosquet des Papes "Chante le Merle" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The old vine cuvée from the estate is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Chante Le Merle and it’s always a rough blend of 85% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Syrah that’s fermented with 100% whole clusters and aged mostly in foudre and old barrels. This classic Châteauneuf du Pape is bursting at the seams with notions of blackberries, peppery herbs, scorched earth, and licorice. With full-bodied richness, terrific depth of fruit and extract, fine tannin and first-rate purity, it’s going to benefit from short-term cellaring and cruise for 10-15 years." (10/2017)

For example, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Renaissance (60/40 Grenache and Mourvèdre) is easily the finest vintage of this cuvée I’ve tasted and it’s loaded with awesome notes of cassis and blackberry fruit intermixed with notions of crushed flowers, cured meats and hints of vanilla bean.

It literally made my heart rate increase. From 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre brought up all in demi-muid, it’s going to be over the top for some, yet is an incredible wine that could come from nowhere else. Bravo!" (10/2017)

The Mourvèdre and Grenache come through in equal measure on the nose, as scrubland herbs, liquorice and blueberries. It's full-bodied, ...Read More »

2015 Xavier Vignon Cairanne

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A new addition to the portfolio and from very old vines, the 2015 Cairanne looks to be outstanding, with terrific notes of lavender, garrigue and flowers grounded by a core of darker berry fruit. Rich, seamless and downright polished, it’s a no-brainer purchase that will offer tons of pleasure through 2025. The blend is 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, aged all in concrete tanks.

2015 Domaine de la Janasse "Tradition" Chateauneuf-du-Pape

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is a terrific effort. Blended from six different lieux-dits, it's roughly 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre. The result features bright raspberry fruit, plenty of weight and richness, a supple, velvety mouthfeel and a touch of chocolate (but notably no heat) on the finish. (JC)" (10/2017) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and focused, with lively plum, raspberry and blackberry pâte de fruit notes that race along nicely, flecked with anise and fruitcake accents. A flash of shiso leaf adds life and cut to the finish, while the fruit streams through. ...Read More »

2015 Domaine Saint Préfert "Classique" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Top Pick!
2015 Domaine Saint Préfert "Classique" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Wine Spectator: "Energetic, with a big ball of kirsch wound tightly with licorice, graphite and raspberry coulis notes. Shows lots of bright spice accents through the finish, which is carried by finely beaded acidity. (JM, Web Only-2017)" 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is a great effort that should be reasonably available. Produced from vines under 30 years old, it's a blend of 85% Grenache, 5% Cinsault, 5% Mourvèdre and 5% Syrah. There's a tinge of chocolate to the raspberry and licorice flavors but also hints of orange zest, cinnamon and clove. It's full-bodied and lush, w ...Read More »

2015 Chateau de la Font du Loup "Le Puy Rolland" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Puy Rolland (100% Grenache) is similar, with pretty notes of strawberries, flowers, and sappy underbrush. It too is medium-bodied, elegant and silky, with ripe tannin, it has slightly more depth and length than the base cuvée. It's going to shine on the dinner table and keep through 2030. (JebDunnuck.com)" (10/2017) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape le Puy Rolland is an all-Grenache cuvée. Full-bodied and extremely round in the mouth, it offers copious amounts of red raspberry and cherry fruit underscored by just a hint of garrigue ...Read More »

2011 Clos Saint Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $40)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape offers gorgeous kirsch and strawberry-styled fruits to go with notions of spring flowers, licorice and rose petal. A perfumed, medium to full-bodied effort, it has loads of charm and class and will have a decade of overall longevity. (JD)" (8/2014) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Brilliant ruby. Black raspberry, lavender and white pepper on the expressive nose. Juicy and open-knit, offering lively red fruit flavors and a jolt of bracing acidity. Closes silky and sweet, with no obvious tannins and very good fruity persistence. This is already delicious.

2016 Château Beaucastel Roussanne Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Vieilles Vignes (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Also bottled two weeks ago, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Roussanne Vieilles Vignes is utterly killer and is as good as it gets. Huge notes of orange blossom, peach, tangerine, honeysuckle, and caramelized citrus flow from this insanely good, unctuous, heavenly textured white that possesses full-bodied richness and power, yet stays light, graceful and perfectly balanced on the palate. Drink bottles anytime over the coming 4-6 years, or cellar for a decade or more. Robert Parker once famously called this the Montrachet of the Rhône, and I wholeheartedly ag ...Read More » 



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 »

2016 Tardieu-Laurent "Cuvée Spéciale" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The tiny production 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Spéciale is Grenache dominated and comes from 100-year-old vines planted in the sandy portions of the famed la Crau lieu-dit. It looks to be one of the stars in the vintage. Blackberries, pepper, violets, and earth all emerge from this full-bodied, massively concentrated, Grenache that has sweet tannin, no hard edges and the opulence and purity of this sensational vintage."

2016 Clos Saint-Jean "Sanctus Sanctorum" Chateauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

97-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Vincent told me that they harvested very late for the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Sanctus Sanctorum, yet there’s absolutely no sense of overripeness or heaviness, and this beauty has everything you could want. Offering a profound nose of blackberries, blueberries, graphite, lead pencil, scorched earth and even a hint of spring flowers, it hits the palate with incredible density and richness that carries an absurd amount of fruit, ripe tannin and a finish that won’t quit. Give this undeniable blockbuster 3-4 years and enjoy over the following 20." (10/2017)

2015 Domaine de Cristia "Renaissance" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Wine Spectator: "This has an intense core of crushed plum, raspberry and boysenberry fruit flavors, draped with melted licorice notes and backed by a wave of warm fruitcake. Hedonistic for sure, but accents of anise, violet and singed apple wood dart around, adding extra facets of intrigue to hold your attention. Grenache and Mourvèdre. Best from 2020 through 2040. (JM)" (9/2017) 95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Renaissance is a gem and as always is a 60/40 split of Grenache and Mourvèdre brought up in demi-muids and smaller barrels (one-third new). Blackcurrants, blackberries ...Read More »

2016 Domaine de la Janasse "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape(1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

98-100 points Vinous: "Incorporating 8% Mourvèdre, 12% Syrah and 5% other permitted variety, 60% destemmed, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Vieilles Vignes sports a deep, inky color as well as sensational notes of black currants, smoked meats, earth and crushed rocks. Deep, rich, unctuous and decadent, with huge extract and richness, yet never over the top or overripe, it's a killer wine that's going to flirt with perfection on release."

2015 Xavier Vignon Vacqueyras

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the standouts in the portfolio is the 2015 Vacqueyras and it’s a full-bodied, charming, even sexy blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Grenache and 10% Mourvèdre that’s aged in a combination of one- to three-year-old barrels. Giving up loads of black raspberries, plums, spice box and garrigue, it hits the palate with an expansive, rounded and ripe profile that just begs to be drunk. I expect it will benefit from a year or two of bottle age and shine through 2025. (JD)" (12/2016)

Big, structured and tannic, yet with sensational purity and classic notes of blackberries, raspberries, roasted meats and roasted herbs, it expands on the palate, is impeccably balanced and will be an age-worthy Châteauneuf du Pape. I’ve had numerous splendid bottles from this estate over the past decade and I continue to love the wines from the young Vincent Durieu.
