2012 E. Guigal Côtes du Rhône

91 points Vinous: "Deep ruby. Spice- and smoke-accented cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by suggestions of candied violet and cracked pepper. Spicy, energetic and sharply focused on the palate, offering concentrated bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors that open up slowly with air. Distinctly northern Rhône in personality and texture, featuring a peppery, floral-dominated finish, smooth tannins and excellent closing thrust and persistence. The quality of this bottling consistently outpaces its price and appellation, and that's especially true in this vint ...Read More »

2013 Château de Montfaucon "Baron Louis" Lirac Top Pick!
2013 Château de Montfaucon "Baron Louis" Lirac

90 points Wine Spectator: "This sports a brambly feel, with lots of dark licorice and warm fruitcake notes mixing with lightly steeped plum and blackberry fruit. Maintains good energy through the modestly toasted finish. Drink now through 2017. 4,200 cases made. (JM)" (11/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The top red of the estate is the 2013 Baron Louis Lirac and it’s a blend of 55% Grenache, 15% each of Syrah and Cinsault, and the rest Carignan and Mourvèdre. More concentrated and structured than the straight Lirac, yet also more austere and firm, it has savory notes of wood smoke, black currants, sandalwood ...Read More »

2013 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape

91 points Vinous: "Deep red. Fresh, mineral-tinged red and dark berry scents are given depth by suggestions of licorice and cola. Sappy raspberry and boysenberry flavors show very good depth and pick up a suave lavender pastille nuance on the back half. Concentrated yet lively, delivering strong thrust and smooth, even tannins that build steadily through a long, floral-dominated finish.

It’s a great value to enjoy over the coming 2-3 years. (JD)" (12/2015) 90 points Vinous: "Light, bright yellow. Dried pear, Meyer lemon, white flowers and beeswax on the seductively perfumed nose.

2012 Domaine Le Colombier "Cuvée G" Vacqueyras (Previously $30)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the top Vacqueyras out there, the 2012 Vacqueyras G is an even split of Grenache and Syrah that’s aged 12 months in barrel. Tasting more like a Chateauneuf du Pape than a Vacqueyras, it boasts stunning notes of black raspberry, kirsch, licorice, roasted meats and spice-box, all of which have sticking purity, freshness and detail. Full-bodied, voluptuous and also concentrated, this is one sexy 2012 to drink over the coming 7-8 years, if not longer. (JD)" (1/2015)

2015 Tardieu Laurent "Cuvée Spéciale" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As to the reds, all of these show beautiful purity of fruit and impeccably made profiles. As a whole, 2015 was consistent throughout the Southern Rhône, and you see that consistency in this lineup. From 100-year-old Grenache vines planted in sandy parts of the La Crau lieu-dit, the blockbuster 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Spéciale knocks it out of the park with its decadent notes of kirsch, blackberries, Provençal garrigue and graphite aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, deep, rich and concentrated, it has an inherent, Grenache-driven sexiness that I ador ...Read More »

Showing a touch of saltiness on the finish, drink this beauty with food over the coming year or so.

Possessing a touch of modern sheen in its graphite, black raspberry and crushed violet bouquet, this beauty hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, a tight, focused, yet gorgeously pure texture and good, maybe not great levels of concentration. It’s still a touch backwards and reticent, and my money is on it benefiting from a year or three in the cellar, and drin ...Read More »

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.

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Looking at the reds and the only 2011 I was able to taste (I’m not sure if they produced their other two cuvees or not), the 2011 Vacqueyras G (50/50 blend of Grenache and Syrah aged in 1-3-year-old barrels) is a fruit loaded, medium to full-bodied effort that has fresh, lively aromatics (plum, violets, underbrush and spice), juicy acidity and quality tannin.

There's a wealth of richness and power here, and it's so layered and dense. A wine that shows a smooth build of fine and even tannin. The gentle pepperiness cracks into the finish, where there's another warm dark chocolate afterglow. This spent 36 months in oak, of which 50% was new.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Beaucastel has been on a terrific qualitative roll over the last four vintages, and the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape (which Francois Perrin feels is similar to the 1990, although I don’t see that as of yet) is a 15,000-case blend of 30% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, 10% Counoise, and the balance split among the other permitted varietals of the appellation.

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 Château des Tours Vacqueyras Réserve

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The sensational 2009 Vacqueyras should age as well as its 2004 counterpart, but it is a headier cuvee with relatively high alcohol (probably 15+%). It exhibits abundant notes of kirsch liqueur, licorice and raspberry in addition to a full-bodied style filled with fruit and character. Aged completely in tank, it comes across like a family member of the great Chateau Rayas. This is the home estate of Emmanuel Reynaud, who has been producing the wines of Rayas since 1997. A relatively large estate of nearly 100 acres, Domaine des Tours fashions some remar ...Read More »

2013 M. Chapoutier "L'Ermite" Ermitage Rouge (Previously $230)

97 points Wine Spectator: "*Collectibles* Sleek, with mouthwatering flavors of red currant, raspberry and cherry preserves forming the core, while a dusting of cocoa, a snap of red licorice and a long, lingering iron spine complete the picture. Very pure and focused. The minerality wins out in the end. Best from 2019 through 2032. (JM)" (4/2016) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More backwards, tight and structured than either the Méal or the Pavillon, the 2013 Ermitage l’Ermite was similarly completely destemmed and raised in a scant 30% new French oak. Inky purple/blue colored, it reluctantly yields incredibly min ...Read More »

2001 Domaine du Vieux Lazaret "Cuvée Exceptionnelle" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Structured, dense, and tannic is the dark ruby/purple-colored 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Exceptionnelle. It possesses crisp acidity as well as a tightly-knit personality, but sizeable weight and depth on the palate. (RP)" (2/2004)

2013 M. Chapoutier "de l'Orée" Ermitage Blanc

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Leading off three single-vintage whites from Hermitage, the stunning 2013 Ermitage Cuvee de L’Orée has an off-the-hook bouquet that includes just about everything you could think of when considering Hermitage Blanc. White peach, white flowers, almond paste, quince and wet rock are just some of the nuances, and it packs a serious punch on the palate, with full-bodied richness, a flamboyant, expansive texture and riveting focus and purity. Give it a year or so and drink it over the following 2-3 decades. (JD)" (12/2014) 96 points Wine Spectator: "This has a weighty, honeyed feel, with ...Read More »

2008 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

93 points Wine Spectator: "*Collectibles* Ripe and very sleek, with a dense core of cassis, blackberry and anise framed by violet and spice. The long finish drips with juicy fruit and subtle toast, with a flash of iron boding well for cellaring. Shows great freshness and balance for the vintage. Drink now through 2024." (6/2011) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid ruby. Enticing aromas of raspberry, dried flowers and spice cake. Sweet and penetrating, offering sappy flavors of red and dark berries, candied flowers and chewing tobacco. Combines depth and juiciness smoothly, finishing with gentle grip and persiste ...Read More »

2005 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

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. (JD)" (8/2014) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Showing beautifully, with intense fig, black currant and boysenberry fruit and dark chocolate, date bread, spice and mineral not ...Read More »

2014 Yves Cuilleron "L'Amarybelle" Saint-Joseph Vieilles Vignes

91-93 points Vinous: "(aged in 25% new oak for 18 months): Saturated ruby. Ripe cherry and blackberry on the deeply perfumed nose, complicated by notes of pipe tobacco, violet and candied licorice. Smoky and focused on the palate, offering gently sweet dark berry and floral pastille flavors sharpened by zesty acidity and a peppery nuance. Finishes sappy, gently sweet and very long, offering slow-building tannins and a late hint of cola. (JR)" (3/2016)

2006 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From the normal tiny yields of this estate (on the order of 22 hectoliters per hectare), the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape from Paul-Vincent has shed its baby fat and now shows a supple, elegant, seamless profile that's hard to resist. Kirsch, licorice, garrigue and sweet spice all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced 2006. It benefits from a short decant, and while showing plenty of maturity, it will evolve gracefully for at least another decade. (JD)" (3/2016) 95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Highly expressive aromas of raspberry, cherry, lavender, smoked ...Read More »

2012 Domaine de la Janasse "Chaupin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Chaupin, which I was able to taste (and drink) from multiple bottles, is a beautiful Grenache that comes from the cooler, northeastern edge of the appellation. Coming almost all from the Chapouin lieu-dit (it gets a small bit from La Janasse), it gives up the classic notes of black berries, spring flowers, violets, and licorice that I always seem to find in this cuvee. Building nicely on the palate, it is medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured, has tons of sweet fruit and solid, if not firm, tannin that come out on ...Read More »

2013 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

93-95 points Vinous: "Vivid ruby-red. Potent raspberry, potpourri and garriguescents expand with air, picking up smoke and mineral nuances and a hint of olive. Sweet and seamless in texture, offering intense cassis and red berry compote flavors and a touch of licorice. Blends richness and vivacity smoothly, finishing spicy, focused and very long, with dusty tannins adding grip. (JR)" (4/2015) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Very juicy and lively in feel, with pepper, tobacco and bay leaf notes leading the way for a core of raspberry, bitter plum and red currant coulis flavors.

2003 Pierre Usseglio "Mon Aïeul" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The best bottle of this I've had (and I've had plenty), Usseglio's 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul is a blockbuster and one of the true stars of this vintage. Almost all Grenache (there's a small part of Syrah and Cinsault) that was harvest between September 1-13, partially destemmed and aged in both tank and foudre, this massive, voluptuous effort is almost overflowing with notes of ground herbs, chocolate dusted meats, black fruits and licorice. Showing none of the negative traits of the vintage, with beautiful purity and freshness, sweet t ...Read More »
