2015 Château d'Aqueria Tavel Rose Top Pick!
2015 Château d'Aqueria Tavel Rose

95 points Decanter: "*Platinum Medal - Decanter World Wine Awards* The bouquet is shapely with red fruits and garrigue herbs. The palate extends well with modest berry fruit, strawberry and red cherry at its heart. There is a mineral clarity and a firm acidity which ensures an intense finish. This is a well made wine with classic terrior and style. (JR)" 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A smokin' effort that readers should check out is the 2015 Tavel Rosé from Chateau d'Aqueria.

2012 Domaine Le Couroulu "Vieilles Vignes" Vacqueyras

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even more impressive, the 2012 Vacqueyras Vieilles Vignes is an inky colored blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah that also was aged completely in concrete tank. Loaded with mineral-laced blackberry fruit, earth, wild herbs and roasted meat-like aromas and flavors, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness and depth, bright acidity and stunning purity of fruit. More than a little impressive, it’s an age-worthy 2012 that should benefit from a year or two in bottle and have over a decade of longevity. Don’t miss it!

A blend of mostly tank-aged Grenache, with a splash of Mourvedre (aged in demi-muid), this gorgeous effort tastes like the essence of Rasteau.

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)

2012 Bernard Levet "La Chavaroche" Côte-Rôtie

94 points Vinous: "Dark purple. A heady, exotically perfumed boquet evokes black and blue fruit liqueur, incense, smoked meat and floral pastille, with a minerally nuance lending vivacity. Broad and sappy on the palate, offering intense boysenberry and cherry compote flavors and a wild twist of passion fruit. Densely packed yet lively, finishing with outstanding power and persistence. Even tannins come in late and fold smoothly into the wine's intense fruit. (JR)" (2/2015)

2014 Domaine Faury Saint-Joseph

90-92 points Vinous: "Inky ruby. High-pitched aromas of cherry, black currant and cracked pepper, and subtle floral and olive nuances in the background. Juicy and taut on entry, then more broad and supple in the mid-palate, offering spicy black and blue fruit flavors and a hint of bitter chocolate. Smooth tannins add grip to the appealingly sweet finish. (JR)" (12/2015)

2012 E. Guigal Hermitage Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing similar to last year, the 2012 Hermitage Blanc (which doesn’t include the grapes that went into the Ex Voto) is a fabulous white that gives up classical notes of acacia flowers, buttered citrus, wood smoke and crushed rock. Medium to full-bodied, rich, textured and layered, it will have another decade of thrilling drinking. (JD)" (12/2015) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Rich, almost unctuous in feel, with melon, apricot and glazed peach flavors layered with notes of orange sabayon and singed hazelnut. Cuts a long and broad swath through the finish, showing lingering paraffin and ...Read More »

2013 Bosquet des Papes "Tradition" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

90-92 points Vinous: "Ruby-red. Smoky red berry and cherry scents show good clarity and pick up a spicy element with air. 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. (JR)" (4/2015) 91 points Wine & Spirits: "This is fresh and fragrant, a pretty Châteauneuf with a rose fragrance and sappy, spicy red fruit. It feels vivacious despite the significant wood spice, the ...Read More »

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

91-93 points Vinous: "Vivid ruby-red. High-pitched, mineral-tinged aromas of fresh red berries and flowers, in a style that's strongly reminiscent of a ripe-year Burgundy. 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. (JR)" (4/2015) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Features a well-packed core of plum, black currant and raspberry preserve flavors, harnessed for now by singed alder, shiso leaf and anise notes. The ...Read More »

2014 Domaine Faury "Vieilles Vignes" Saint-Joseph

92-94 points Vinous: "Vivid ruby. Seductively perfumed aromas of dark berry liqueur, spice-cake, olive and candied flowers and an emerging smoky mineral note. Offers deep-pitched blueberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors, along with a peppery spice nuance that builds slowly with air. Weighty, sweet and impressively lively on the minerally finish, showing excellent clarity and fine-grained tannins that come in late. (JR)" (3/2016)

2014 E. Guigal "Lieu Dit" Saint-Joseph Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Wine Spectator: "Flamboyantly gorgeous, with toasted macadamia nut and warmed butter notes leading the way for a rich core of papaya, creamed white peach and Cavaillon melon flavors. Verbena and heather details frame the finish, which lets the fruit pump through. A beauty. Drink now through 2022." (8/2016) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 St Joseph Lieu Dit St Joseph Blanc is 100% Marsanne that was raised all in wood, with the normal 100% new oak regime pulled back to just 50%. It’s a rock star white that plays in the top handful of white from the appellation, and would easily stand in a lineup o ...Read More »

2014 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Not yet bottled, the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape is one of the few inky colored wines in the vintage. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and ripe with notable tannin, it offers beautiful notes of blackberry, shitake mushrooms, licorice and pepper meats. It plays in the 2014 vintage’s forward, supple nature, but has real depth and concentration. I don’t think it will be the longest lived Beaucastel, but it will have 15-20 years of overall longevity. While 2013 and 2014 are no doubt difficult vintages, this is still a brilliant lineup of wines from the Per ...Read More »

2014 E. Guigal Condrieu (Pre-Arrival)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Philippe and Marcel continue to pull back on the amount of oak used for their Condrieu, and the wines show more and more freshness and purity, without sacrificing texture. The 2014 Condrieu has lots of minerality as well as classy citrus blossom, white peach and a kiss of apricot to go with a medium-bodied, pure, elegant feel on the palate. It has plenty of fruit, a big mid-palate and is a gorgeous Condrieu ... (JD)" (12/2015) 92 points Vinous: "Green-tinged yellow. complex scents of yellow peach, tangerine, mango and chamomile take on a dusty mineral flourish as the wine op ...Read More »

2013 Paul Jaboulet Aîné "La Chapelle" Hermitage (Previously $160)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A much more structured, even austere, Hermitage than the La Petite Chapelle release, the 2013 Hermitage la Chapelle came from minuscule yields of ten to 18 hectoliters per hectare and was aged 15-18 months in 20% new French oak. Not harvested until the 12th of October, it offers a sensational bouquet of blackberry and black raspberry fruits, powdered rock, gunpowder and pepper. Medium to full-bodied, with good (though maybe not great) levels of concentration, it has high, yet beautifully polished tannin, integrated acidity, and terrific cut and focus on ...Read More »

2012 E. Guigal "La Mouline" Côte-Rôtie

96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Possessing slightly more purity (but maybe not the complexity) than the 2011, the 2012 Cote Rotie la Mouline offers a heavenly perfume of cured meats, pecking duck, violets and cassis. This flows to a full-bodied, seamless, absolutely hedonistic Cote Rotie that has good acidity, ripe, polished tannin and a great finish. Of the three single parcel Cote Roties, it’s the most approachable, but will still drink beautifully for three decades or more. One of the highlight tastings during my two weeks spent working in the northern Rhône was with Philippe and Ma ...Read More »
