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 »

2012 Château de Montfaucon "Baron Louis" Lirac

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A new cuvee, the 2012 Baron Louis Lirac is a gorgeous Lirac that has pretty black raspberry, spice and floral aromatics, medium-bodied richness and an overall elegant, polished and layered style. It's a serious wine that will have 8-10 years of longevity. (JD)" (1/2015) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Offers a lush, flattering feel, with velvety raspberry and plum sauce flavors gliding along, carried by twinges of anise, fruitcake and singed cinnamon stick. Fresh acidity lets everything meld on the finish. Drink now through 2017. (JM)" (11/2015) K&L Notes: An 88-acre estate, Château de Montfaucon sit... Read More »

2013 Moulin de la Gardette "Tradition" Gigondas

91 points Vinous: "Ruby-red. Fresh red berries and candied flowers on the assertively perfumed nose. Silky, seamless and appealingly sweet, offering intense raspberry and lavender flavors and building spiciness. Sweet and penetrating on the subtly tannic, clinging finish, which leaves behind notes of red berries and spicecake. (JR)" (5/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted out of bottle, the 2013 Gigondas Tradition is a blend of 50% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 25% Mourvedre that fermented with 100% whole clusters and aged all in ancient foudre and old barrels.

2014 E. Guigal Côtes du Rhône Blanc

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another rock solid vintage for this cuvee, the 2014 Cotes du Rhone Blanc (65% Viognier) offers terrific clarity and purity in its tangerine, citrus and orange blossom, in a clean, crisp, elegant package. 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 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. Located in Rasteau, Domaine La Coll ...Read More »

Long and authoritative on the finish, with singed vanilla bean and tar notes adding length and dimension. Best from 2015 through 2026."

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. (JR)" (4/2016) Jancis Robinson: "Bright crimson.

2010 Xavier Vins "Cuvée Anonyme" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The powerful, rich 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Anonyme reveals an off-the-chart level of extract, lots of glycerin (nearly 16% natural alcohol) and copious black cherry, blueberry, forest floor, lavender and graphite characteristics. 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)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of my favorite wines, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Réservée is a classic. Beautiful on the nose, with notions of ground pepper, wild herbs, minerality and smoked plum and dark fruit, it’s medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and has plenty of tannin that comes through on the finish. Similar in style to a lighter-weight 2010, drink this beauty anytime over the coming 12-15 years. (JD)" (10/2014) 93 points Vinous: "Opaque ruby.

2012 Domaine la Colliere "Rasteau" Côtes du Rhône

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.

Delivers a steeped feel through the finish, with a long charcoal thread. This is quietly always one of the smartest buys in high-end Northern Rhône reds. Best from 2016 through 2025."

An inky/ruby/purple color is followed by a glorious nose of blue and black fruits, truffles, pen ink, licorice, and meat juices as well as glorious levels of acidity and sweet tannin, buttressing the fruit’s fabulous freshness and vibrancy. This full-bodied effort still displays considerable tannin, no doubt because of the relatively high Mourvedre content. It should resolve its tannins in 2-4 years, and last for 25 or more.

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 »

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 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. The long finish lets the pepper ...Read More »

2012 M. Chapoutier "Le Pavillon" Ermitage Rouge (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2012 M. Chapoutier "Le Pavillon" Ermitage Rouge (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sharing some similarities to the le Meal (yet its from a very different terroir), with its full-bodied, decadent, heavenly profile that somehow stays pure, poised and elegant, the 2012 Ermitage le Pavillon (767 cases) offers an extraordinary perfume of cassis, raspberries, crushed flowers, powdered rock and smoked earth. Coming all from the granite soils of the les Bessards lieu-dit, which produces some of the most muscular, concentrated wines on the planet, this serious 2012 is more approachable than either the 2009 or 2010, yet certainly is at the same ...Read More »

2013 Domaine Grand Veneur "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $80)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In the top 1-2 wines of the vintage, the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a Mourvedre shifted blend of 40% Grenache, 40% Mourvedre and 20% Syrah that saw 16 months in 60% small barrels, with the balance in concrete tanks. There’s just over 400 cases produced and this inky colored, beautifully concentrated effort offers loads of roasted meats, licorice, chocolate and sweet black fruits. Seamless, sexy and seamless, with uncommon polish and ripeness to its tannin, it will have 10-15+ years of longevity. (JD)" (10/2015) 91-93 points Vinous: "Vivid purple. Complex, expan ...Read More »

2013 Domaine du Clos du Caillou "Réserve les Clos du Caillou" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $100)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The cream of the lineup and one of the stars of the vintage is the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Reserve le Clos du Caillou. Incorporating more Mourvèdre than normal (a blend of 55% Grenache and 45% Mourvèdre), this smokin’ southern Rhône sports a deep ruby/purple color to go with notes of blackcurrants, white pepper, orange liqueur and graphite. Big, full-bodied, supple and elegant, it’s certainly not as massive as some of the greats from this estate (2001, 2005, 2007 or 2010), but hats off to the team for producing a wine of this quality in a difficult vint ...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)

2012 Mas de Volques "Cuvee Speciale" Volcae Rhone Valley

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Also superb, as well as a fantastic value, the 2012 Volcae Cuvee Speciale (a custom cuvee made specifically for the U.S. market) checks in as a blend of 40% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 20% Carignan that spent 12 months in barrel (Grenache all in tank). Hedonistic, up-front and voluptuously textured, with medium to full-bodied richness and depth, it offers loads of kirsch, raspberry, spice box, incense and hints of flowers on the nose. Possessing no hard edges and a forward personality, it can be consumed anytime over the coming 4-5 years, and given its balan ...Read More »

2010 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne "Les Trois Sources" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Trois Sources comes from the estate's vineyards planted in sandy soils. About 10,000 bottles have been produced. One of the great wines of the vintage, this unbelievable Chateauneuf is still extremely young and primary. Its opaque purple color is followed by scents of ink, acacia flowers, blueberries, black raspberries and blackberries. While full-bodied, extremely concentrated and massive, the wine is totally harmonious with beautifully integrated acidity, tannin and alcohol (which is no doubt in excess of 16%). Give thi ...Read More »

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)

2013 Bernard Levet "La Chavaroche" Côte-Rôtie

95 points Vinous: "Brilliant violet. An explosively perfumed bouquet displays intense black and blue fruit liqueur, incense, olive and floral pastille scents underscored by a smoky mineral quality. Broad, weighty and surprisingly lithe on the palate; sweet, palate-coating blueberry, cherry cola and candied violet flavors show superb concentration and energy thanks to a spine of juicy acidity and repeating minerality. Strikingly vibrant, seamless and persistent on the finish, where the mineral and floral notes emphatically repeat.

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape (70% Grenache and 15% each of Syrah and Mourvedre) is beautiful, with medium to full-bodied richness, lots of sweet black raspberry fruit, graphite, bouquet garni and licorice aromatics, and sweet, building tannin that comes through on the finish. It shows the purity and balance of the vintage, and will dish out loads of pleasure over the coming decade or more.(JD) In case you haven’t been following any of the Wine Advocate reports over the past decade, Domaine de La Janasse, under the leadership of siblings Christophe and I ...Read More »

2003 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "While I've always loved the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape, it was extremely controversial in its youth due to its exuberance and ripeness. Yet today, with the wine at maturity, all of that controversy has been put to bed and I know of no one contesting the beauty of this wine - the 2007 vintage in Chateauneuf du Pape will be the same. Looking at the 2003 vintage, Paul-Vincent told me that they started harvest on September 5, but quickly had to stop due to rain on the September 7. They waited for the vineyards to dry out and the last plots weren't brought in u ...Read More »
