2015 E. Guigal Côtes du Rhône Blanc

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another terrific white is the 2015 Côtes du Rhône Blanc, a cuvée that continues to over-deliver in just about every vintage. Tasting like a top-flight Condrieu with its tangerine, honey and floral aromas and flavors, it’s pure, elegant and impeccably balanced on the palate.

These carry to a medium to full-bodied, elegant and balanced red that gains depth and richness with time in the glass, has loads Provencal character and a great finish.

2015 E. Guigal Condrieu (Pre-Arrival)

Aged in one-third new barrels and two-thirds in tank, it’s a rich, unctuous, thrillingly textured beauty that has plenty of orange blossom, flower oil, tangerine and peach. Fruit-loaded, with just a touch of minerality, it should be drunk over the coming 2-4 years."

(JL)" (4/2017) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I was able to taste all of the components of the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape and this is a vintage described by Marc Perrin where every variety excelled. The Grenache and Mourvèdre were the clear standouts, both possessing terrific concentration, purity of fruit and ripe tannic structure. This will certainly be an outstanding wine, and it has a touch more concentration than the 2012. This reference point ...Read More »

2012 Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes (Previously $110)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Up in the top handful of wines in the vintage (which should come as no surprise to anyone who follows this estate), the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, rich and layered Châteauneuf that doesn’t put a foot wrong. Made from 85% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre and the rest Syrah, it offers blockbuster notes of blackberry, liquid-violets, spice and serious minerality to go with awesome mid-palate depth and layers of sweet tannin. Like the Cuvee Chaupin, it will be better in another handful of years and thrill thro ...Read More »

2009 Clos Saint-Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Similar in style to the 2011, yet with additional richness, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes boasts knockout aromas and flavors of blackberry liqueur, orange rind, sweet spice and crushed flowers to go with a full-bodied, rich, layered and sexy feel on the palate. A gorgeous effort that's hard to resist now, it will nevertheless have 15 years or more of evolution. (JD)" (8/2014) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Ripe blackberry and cherry on the nose, with dark chocolate and licorice adding complexity. Deep, spice-accented cherry liqueur and bitter chocolate flavo ...Read More »

2014 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Saint-Joseph

92-94 points Vinous: "Tasted in components: #1, from Bachasson: Highly perfumed aromas and flavors of fresh dark berries and cherry, bearing an intense floral overtone. Juicy and precise with excellent clarity and finishing lift. #2, from 90-year-old vines in Clos Florentin: Potent dark berry and pungent flowers on the mineral-accented nose. Deeply concentrated yet lithe, offering vibrant blackberry and violet pastille flavors that open up slowly on the back half. Rich but nervy, displaying outstanding closing thrust and lingering sweetness. The final wine should be a weighty ...Read More »

2015 Château de Saint Cosme "Hominis Fides" Gigondas (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A wine that might rival the 2007, the 2015 Gigondas Hominis Fides (100% Grenache from sandy soils located just down from the estate) offers full-bodied, massive and unctuous notes of currants, crushed rocks, smoked meats and licorice. Fermented with 100% whole clusters and aged mostly in older barrels, this sensational Gigondas might end up being the wine of the vintage, from the entire Southern Rhone valley! It has masses of tannin, so it’s going to require patience. Unquestionably one of the reference point estates, not only for Gigondas, but for th ...Read More »

2005 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The most masculine and structured of the group, the 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape is locked and loaded, with serious concentration, big tannin and no shortage of length on the finish. Coming from a year that featured a cool summer and then scorching temps around harvest, this beauty doles out loads of creme de cassis, licorice, graphite and crushed rock-like minerality, as well as a seamless, perfectly balanced profile. Give it another 2-3 years and drink it through 2025. (JD)" (8/2014) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Showing beautifully, with intense fig, black currant and boysenberry fruit ...Read More »

2011 Alain Voge "Vieilles Vignes" Cornas

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A remarkable effort, the 2011 Cornas Vieilles Vignes is one of the stars of the vintage. Superbly concentrated with an inky/purple color and a layered texture, it reveals copious aromas of blueberries, blackberries and spring flowers intermixed with hints of pen ink, lavender and graphite. Full-bodied as well as supple and accessible, it should keep for 12-15 years. (JD)" (12/2012) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Vibrant, with terrific, chiseled cut to the range of briar, anise, blackberry compote, bay leaf, iron and sanguine notes, all wrapped with singed alder and juniper accents on th ...Read More »

2013 Bernard Levet "Les Journaries" Côte-Rôtie

94 points Vinous: "(aged in all older foudres): Dark purple. Powerful, strongly perfumed blackberry and cherry liqueur scents pick up sexy floral and spicecake nuances and a hint of smokiness with aeration. Rich, seamless and broad on the palate, offering concentrated yet lively black and blue fruit and violet pastille flavors energized by juicy acidity and an intense mineral quality. Finishes smooth, sweet and extremely long, with velvety tannins and a strong echo of peppery spices and smoky minerals. (JR)" (3/2016)

2015 M. Chapoutier ""Invitare" Condrieu (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As to the Condrieu, I was shocked at the quality of both new releases. The entry-level cuvée is the 2015 Condrieu Invitare. A flat-out great example of the appellation, it offers lots of caramelized peaches, tangerine, orange blossom and crushed rock-like characteristics in its rich, yet fresh and elegant style. Not enough can be said about the quality that consistently comes from this estate. From the top to the bottom of the range, you can’t go wrong. And while the prices at the top are frightfully expensive (they’re out of my zip code), there are i ...Read More »

2012 E. Guigal "Château d'Ampuis" Côte-Rotie

97 points James Suckling: "The nose has a complex array of fine-ground eastern spices, strong cardamom, fine dark chocolate, ripe black cherry and plums. There's even some liquorice. It has a neatly composed and elegant feel on the palate; it really flows long, rippling with spicy flavors and a smooth, dense and creamy finish. Best from 2028 for a decade or more." (10/2016) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Côte Rôtie Château d’Ampuis is a bigger, richer wine that offers full-bodied richness and a broad, expansive style on the palate. Black raspberries, toasted spices, cured meats and licorice all emerge fr ...Read More »

2000 Domaine de la Mordorée "Cuvée de la Reine du Bois" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A wine that always does it for me, the 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de La Reine des Bois is open for business and has a sexy, voluptuous texture to go with classic Mordoree spice, licorice, graphite and black cherry and currant-styled fruit. Beautifully complex, full-bodied and with brilliant purity of fruit, drink it over the coming 3-5 years. (JD)" (8/2014) 94 points Wine Spectator: "A sensational Châteauneuf-du-Pape that's sleek, yet rich and thick.

2015 Chateau de Saint Cosme Gigondas (Pre-Arrival)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Starting with the 2015 Gigondas Classique from Barruol, this blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre and the rest Syrah and Cinsault will be a wine that readers will want to stockpile. Full-bodied, rich, beautifully textured and layered, with killer notes of crème de cassis, white pepper, spice and garrigue, it’s a classic Gigondas that will drink well for 15+ years. Unquestionably one of the reference point estates, not only for Gigondas, but for the entire Southern Rhône, Louis Barruol’s Chateau de Saint Cosme lies just outside the village and covers 2 ...Read More »
