2009 E. Guigal "Brune et Blonde" Côte-Rôtie (Pre-Arrival, Previously $60)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Possessing additional richness, the 2009 Cote Rotie Brune et Blonde boasts rocking cassis, scorched earth and chocolate to go with more classic cured meats, mineral and violet-like nuances that emerge with time in the glass. Full-bodied, gorgeously pure, with a core of sweet fruit, it too will totally thrill over the coming decade or more. One of the reference point estates for top quality wines in the world today, the family run Guigal operation was created in 1946 by Etienne Guigal.

2012 Michel Gassier "Cercius" Vieilles Vignes Côtes du Rhone Rouge (Elsewhere $15)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A joint venture between Gassier, Philippe Cambie, and importer Eric Solomon, the 2012 Cercius Vieilles Vignes is a year in, year out ridiculous value that also drinks well past its humble price point. Comprised of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah that was aged for 6 months in concrete, it has loads of raspberry, licorice, mineral and Provencal herbs as well as a soft, supple and silky textured feel on the palate. Coming from old Grenache vines (70-90 years in age) located on the Plateau de Domazan - which lies on the right bank of the Rhone river, just west of ...Read More »

Full-bodied, concentrated, locked and loaded, it's another 30+ year wine from this team that readers should purchase by the case. 93+ points.

2012 Domaine la Colliere "La Fontaine" Rasteau Top Pick!
2012 Domaine la Colliere "La Fontaine" Rasteau

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even more impressive, the estate's old vine cuvee, the 2012 Rasteau La Fontaine, is consistently one of the top 2-3 wines in the vintage. 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. Black fruits, dried spices, garrigue and mineral-like aromas all flow from the glass and this full-bodied, concentrated and blockbuster-styled Rasteau will benefit from a year or two in the cellar, and evolve gracefully for upward of a decade.

2010 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $100+)

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "The 2010 Beaucastel is a tour de force, brilliantly combining espresso and black olive notes with bright raspberry fruit, while dark earthy notes provide a solid base. The feel on the palate is ample, with tannins that are a bit dusty but not tough or chewy. The long, mouthwatering finish bodes well for the future. Drink now–2030."

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Beautifully perfumed, the 2012 Rasteau offers a sweet bouquet of red and black fruits, pepper, underbrush, incense and spices to go with a medium to full-bodied, deep and layered profile on the palate. Possessing solid mid-palate depth, fine tannin and rocking length, it should be a no-brainer purchase and drink nicely for 7-8 years. Located in Rasteau, Domaine La Colliere is run by the talented Georges Perrot, with consulting advice from Philippe Cambie. Both of these 2012s are excellent and some of the top wines in the vintage.

Showing its Syrah component, with sappy black and blue fruit flavors sharpened by a spicy nuance. A sexy floral note comes up on a gently tannic finish that lingers with very good persistence.

A dense dark ruby color is followed by a sexy nose of raspberries, ground pepper, spice box, damp earth, kirsch and dark currants.

It’s a beautiful wine that, unsurprisingly, bares more than a passing resemblance to a high-quality Côte Rôtie from the southern part of the appellation.

Thick, unctuous, full-bodied and shockingly concentrated in the vintage, it should be reasonably approachable on release but evolve gracefully. (JD)" (12/2015) Jancis Robinson: "Blackish crimson.

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Domaine Bois de Boursan Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Felix is superb. Showing a mature, yet still lively and fruit-driven profile of sweet currants, saddle leather, truffle, and garrigue, it stays beautifully rich and seductive on the palate, with layers of sweet fruit, no hard edges and a great finish. Certainly a ripe vintage, yet everything is perfectly proportioned, the tannins are sweet and it is a joy to drink. A blend of 65% Grenache and the balance a mix of Mourvedre and Syrah, from 90-year-old vines, it held up beautifully with air and ...Read More »

2012 E. Guigal "La Turque" Côte-Rôtie (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Taking longer to develop in the glass than the exuberant and sexy la Mouline, the 2012 Cote Rotie la Turque (93% Syrah and 7% Viognier that will see four years in new oak) offers Bordeaux-like notes of lead pencil and graphite to go with olive, smoked herbs, pepper and ripe dark fruits. Possessing a touch less raw material than both the 2009 and 2010, it nevertheless has full-bodied richness, serious mid-palate depth, lots of sweet tannin and a fabulous finish. It will need 4-6 years of cellaring and drink well over the following two to three decades. On ...Read More »

2012 Famille Perrin " Les Hauts de Julien Vieilles Vignes" Vinsobres

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing much more open and expressive than when I tasted it last year (or said another way, I under-rated it), the 2012 Côtes du Rhône Villages Vinsobres les Hauts de Julien comes from close to 100-year-old vines located in the northern part of the Southern Rhône. A blend of Syrah and Grenache that’s still in barrel, it offers thrilling notes of smoked dark fruits, pepper meats, graphite and big minerality to go with a full-bodied, focused, concentrated and serious feel on the palate. This is impressive across the board, and might be the greatest Vinsobr ...Read More »

2013 Alain Graillot Crozes-Hermitage

91 points Vinous: "Bright purple. Energetic black raspberry, cherry, Asian spices and olive paste on the seductively perfumed nose. Fleshy and expansive in the mouth, offering juicy red and dark berry liqueur flavors and a suave note of candied violet. Picks up spiciness and smokiness with air and finishes on a sweet dark berry note, with good nervy cut and floral persistence. Maxime Graillot told me that this wine is made from a site in Chassis that was planted 45 years ago and has never been treated with any chemicals. -- Josh Raynolds (JR)" (2/2015)

2013 Clos Saint Jean "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

91-93 points Vinous: "Opaque ruby. Smoke- and spice-accented red fruit and potpourri scents show very good clarity and suggestions of allspice and licorice. Silky, sweet and open-knit, offering intense black raspberry and lavender pastille flavors that put on weight as the wine opens up. Deeply flavored but lively too, finishing with excellent focus; dusty tannins lend shape and grip. (JR)" (4/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes a gorgeous drinker that gives up lots of black cherry, lavender, peppery spice and Provençal notes to go with a medium to full-bodied, e ...Read More »

2011 Domaine Michel & Stéphane Ogier Côte-Rôtie (Previously $100)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Cote Roties are all brilliant, and at the upper end, some of the best wines in the vintage. Perfumed and fragrant, the 2011 Cote Rotie Classique isn’t holding much back, with loads of spice, lavender, bacon fat and sweet blackberry fruit all soaring from the glass. Very pure and lively, with great acidity, medium to full-bodied depth and superb length through the finish, this knockout 2011 will have 10-15 years of longevity. (JD)" (12/2013) 93 points Wine & Spirits: "This is spot-on Côte Rôtie, earthy and animal, floral and spicy, a world contained in a mouthful of liquid. ...Read More »

2011 Roger Sabon "Réserve" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

91-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque ruby. More civilized than the Olivets, offering aromas and flavors of candied red fruits and flowers plus a subtle spiciness. Becomes more perfumed with air and finishes sweet, silky and long, with harmonious tannins." (1/2013) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Features a brambly spine, with chestnut and dark licorice snap notes poking out from the core of steeped plum and blackberry coulis. Delivers a juicy, grippy feel through the finish, but this remains silky, with a lingering accent of warm paving stone." (10/2013) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Also showing some dry tannin and savoriness, the 2011 Chateauneuf ...Read More »

2014 M. Chapoutier "Le Pavillon" Ermitage Rouge (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Both the Pavillon and l’Ermite see a touch more new oak, with the wine aged 18 months in 30% new French oak barrels. The 2014 Ermitage le Pavillon will without a doubt be one of the top two to three wines in the vintage; it offers an incredibly granite character in its burning embers, graphite, crème de cassis and campfire-like bouquet. Big, concentrated, full-bodied, thick and yet still with the always present hedonistic slant of this cuvee, it will need 4-5 years of cellaring and have three or more decades of longevity. Looking at the 2014 whites from ...Read More »

2011 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival, Previously $100)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the stars of the vintage and coming from absurdly low yields of 18 hectoliters per hectare, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape is a full-bodied, seamless effort that exhibits copious kirsch, ground pepper, dried flowers and underbrush as well as incredibly fine tannin, great mid-palate concentration and ample length on the finish. Relatively forward by this estate’s standards, it will be approachable at an earlier age than normal. Nevertheless, it will have 20+ years of evolution and is an awesome effort in the vintage. Drink 2015-2030. One of the ben ...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 »

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

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 »

2014 M. Chapoutier "Les Varonniers" Crozes-Hermitage Rouge (Pre-Arrival)

90-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of my favorite Crozes Hermitage is Chapoutier’s les Varonniers which comes from a cool, west-facing terroir located just to the west of the famed Bessards lieu-dit in Hermitage. The inky color of the 2014 Crozes Hermitage les Varonniers is accompanied by Hermitage-like notes of graphite, currants, black raspberry, pepper and liquid violets. These give way to a medium to full-bodied red that has juicy acidity, excellent purity of fruit and ripe tannin. It has more depth than most in the vintage and will have 10-15 years of overall longevity. (JD) ...Read More »

2009 Henri Bonneau "Réserve des Célestins" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even better, the 2009 Châteauneuf du Pape Reserve des Célestins is similar to the Marie Beurrier, yet has additional concentration, mid-palate depth and sweet tannin. The balance here is superb, and it gains more and more structure with time in the glass. There’s plenty of similarities to the ’07 (and to a lesser extent, the 2011), and given this showing, it should have a broad drink window. I continue to be baffled by this estate, and given the cellar conditions, I've no idea how what comes out of these filthy barrels tastes so sweet and heavenly. (JD ...Read More »
