2015 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

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 estate continues to achieve incredible quality in just about every vintage. They’ve certainly made the wine of the vintage in 2014 with their Hommage a ...Read More »

2012 Le Clos du Caillou "Les Safres" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Elsewhere $75)

93 points Vinous: "Vivid ruby-red. Exotically perfumed scents of raspberry liqueur, potpourri and Asian spices, with a zesty mineral nuance adding lift. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering sweet red fruit flavors that expand and deepen with air. Floral pastille and spicecake notes add complexity to the very long finish, which features gently gripping tannins. (JR)" (4/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Offering more kirsch and dark fruit (over the straight Châteauneuf), with plenty of ground pepper and minerality, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Les Safres is medium to full-bodied, layered and satiny ...Read More »

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.

Juicy and sharply focused on the palate, offering energetic raspberry and floral pastille flavors that put on weight and open up steadily with air.

2015 E. Guigal Condrieu (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Guigal’s 2015 Condrieu is a blockbuster that, if not for its big brother, would be one of the wines of the vintage. 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." (12/2016) 94 points James Suckling: "Peach and apricot-pie character that's very showy and very much within the sweet-pastry spectrum.

2015 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is reminiscent of a slightly improved 2005 and has a fresh, classic style with beautiful concentration, notable freshness, first-rate tannin quality, and the classic spice and sweet red and black fruits this cuvee is known for. I suspect this beauty will close down relatively quickly after bottling and take 5-6 years to show at its best, but it will drink well for 15+ years. (JD)" (10/2016)

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

(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.

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.

A step up over the traditional cuvee, the 2014 Gigondas Ventabren (70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Cinsault aged all in old foudre) is loaded with Provencal notes of garrigue, cedary spice, saddle leather and sweet red fruits.

2012 E. Guigal "Brune et Blonde" Côte-Rôtie

94 points James Suckling: "Bottled as a single blend in 2012, this has a fine, peppery edge to the nose with elegant dark-chocolate aromas ahead of brambly dark plums and black-cherry fruits. 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. Best from 2018 and for at least a decade afterwards." (11/2016) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Scheduled to be bottled in two weeks, the 2012 C ...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.

2013 Domaine des Remizières "Cuvée Christophe" Crozes-Hermitage

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Crozes Hermitage Cuvée Christophe should be in the same ballpark as the 2014 (which shows just how good the 2014 is, as 2014 is a much more difficult vintage for Crozes Hermitage). 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 »

Offering incredible notes of black powder, crushed rocks, black and blue fruits, violets and even a hint of lavender, this sensational-looking barrel sample is full-bodied, utterly seamless and polished, with building tannin and perfect structure. It will have 2-3 decades of longevity and might end up being the greatest wine ever made from St Joseph."

95-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Crozes Hermitage excelled in 2015 and all three of these releases from Chapoutier are more than notable. The 2015 Crozes Ermitage Les Varonniers comes from a cool, west-facing parcel just beside the Bessards lieu-dit of Hermitage. My money is on this being the finest Crozes of the vintage. It has beautiful notes of crème de cassis, black currants, wood smoke and charcoal in a full-bodied, massive, rich and concentrated style. It will have two decades of longevity -- I know, because I just tasted the 1996 this year and it was gorgeous." (12/2016) Wine Spectator: "The 2015 C ...Read More »

Medium to full-bodied, rich, textured and layered, it will have another decade of thrilling drinking.

Beautifully pure and fresh on the palate, with full-bodied richness, building, sweet tannin and blockbuster length, I wouldn’t be surprised to see this be the best vintage for this cuvée to date.

Made from 100% Marsanne all from the St Joseph lieu-dit, aged 80% in demi-muids (15% new) and the rest in stainless steel, this sensational white offers loads of minerality in addition to citrus blossom, buttered hazelnuts, toasted bread and hints of orchard fruits.

92 points James Suckling: "A really classical expression of Condrieu with fragrant, musky white flowers and apricots and gentle spices. It smells soft, and the palate has impressive weight and core strength in what is essentially a deeply flavored yet elegant white. The palate's chiseled and shows great balance and depth. Drinking well now through to 2020." (11/2016) 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 wel ...Read More »

2015 M. Chapoutier "Barbe Rac" Chateauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 100% Grenache 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Barbe Rac sports a deep ruby color as well as blockbuster notes of black cherries, crème de cassis, graphite, crushed rock and Provençal spices. This full-bodied beauty has terrific mid-palate density, building, ripe tannin, and serious length, all while still showing the hallmark elegance and minerality of this cuvée. Give bottles 4-5 years in the cellar, and enjoy over the following decade or more. While I’ve always preferred the Barbe Rac cuvée in the past, the quality of the Croix de Bois cuvée continues to ...Read More »

2013 Clos Bellane "Les Echalas Blanc" Côtes du Rhône Villages Valréas (Elsewhere $37)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The top white from the estate is the 2013 Côtes du Rhône Villages Valréas les Echalas Blanc. Made from 100% Roussanne and brought up all in barrels (and taking more than a year to ferment dry), it’s a serious, layered, gorgeously full-bodied white that gives up lots of honeyed nuances, buttered peach, citrus and broche on the nose. Possessing solid freshness, building richness and blockbuster finish, it’s a hidden gem in the vintage. (JD)" (3/2016)

2008 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Wine Spectator: "Dark, inviting and very alluring, with captivating black tea, charred mesquite and kirsch aromas and flavors allied to a remarkably silky mouthfeel. Superlong, with mineral, violet, pepper and additional crushed cherry and plum fruit notes all gliding through the finish. Best from 2011 through 2027. (JM)" (10/2010) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Vincent Avril fashioned one of the finest 2008 Chateauneuf du Papes of the appellation. Made from a classic blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah and the rest an assortment of permitted varietals, it exhibits a dark color as well as a ...Read More »

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 »

2009 Château de Montfaucon "Baron Louis" Côtes du Rhône (1.5L)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Baron Louis Cotes du Rhone, made from six grapes (40% Grenache and the rest various proportions of Syrah, Cinsault, Carignan, Mourvedre and Counoise) displays gamey balsam wood notes intermixed with underbrush, forest floor, black currants, sweet cherries and a hint of mulberries. There are plenty of various berry fruits and spices in this wine... (RP)" (10/2011) 90 points Wine Spectator: "A rock-solid red, with crushed plum and fig fruit layered with cassis, black licorice and toasted spice flavors. Offers depth and character, with nice notes of tar and singed bay leaf rol ...Read More »

2013 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage Rouge Top Pick!
2013 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage Rouge

94-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Still in barrel at the time of this tasting, the 2013 Hermitage will certainly be one of the wines of the vintage. Offering classic, granite-induced notes of smoked dark fruits, graphite, searing minerality and bouquet garni, this sensational Hermitage has medium to full-bodied richness, beautiful mid-palate density and building tannin, all with the freshness and purity of the vintage. Reminiscent of a more backwards, tight, focused and granite-driven year (I asked Jean-Louis if there was a similar vintage he could recall, he commented that he couldn't t ...Read More »

2006 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As I stated last year, there is no Hommage a Jacques Perrin in 2006, but Beaucastel’s 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape is performing even better from bottle than it did last year. Its dense plum/ruby/purple color is followed by a big, sweet perfume of black truffles, camphor, earth, incense, new saddle leather, and loads of peppery, blackberry, and herb-infused, meaty, black cherry fruit. Deep, full-bodied, and dense, with sweet tannin, this explosively rich Chateauneuf is a stronger effort than the 2005, 2004, or 2003. (RP)" (10/2008) 95 points Wine Spectator: "*Collectibles* Powerful, wit ...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)

2013 M. Chapoutier "La Mordorée" Côte-Rôtie

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing beautifully from barrel and now from bottle, the 2013 Côte Rôtie la Mordorée comes from schist soils, was completely destemmed and spent 18 months in 25% new French oak. Its deep purple color is accompanied by classic notes of raspberries, bay leaf, olive tapenade and violets. Possessing beautiful minerality, a full, layered mid-palate and building tannin, drink this beautiful wine anytime over the coming 15 or more years... With respect to the reds, 2013 is a serious vintage at this estate, and at the top end, they’ve produced the wines of the v ...Read More »

2015 M. Chapoutier "Les Greffieux" Ermitage Vieilles Vignes (Pre-Arrival) Back In Stock!
2015 M. Chapoutier "Les Greffieux" Ermitage Vieilles Vignes (Pre-Arrival)

97-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Last of the Hermitage releases, from a vineyard that lies just underneath le Méal, the 2015 Ermitage Les Greffieux is another huge, almost primordial release that tastes like it had just completed fermentation. Inky black in color, with tons of black olive, melted licorice and unctuous levels of black fruit, it should match the 2006 for its concentration, sweet, building tannin and blockbuster finish. Hide this puppy in the cellar for 7-8 years and enjoy over the following 3-4 decades." (12/2016) Wine Spectator: "The 2015 Ermitage Les Greffieux is remarkably fresh, with a ...Read More »

2012 Domaine de Marcoux Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes (Previously $170)

96 points Wine Spectator: "Offers a deep well of succulent, fleshy fig, boysenberry, plum and raspberry fruit, while notes of fruitcake, red licorice and singed apple wood remain prominent. Long, dense, poised and polished through the finish, this has finely beaded acidity and perfectly inlaid tannins to let everything come together in the cellar. A stunner, presenting a combination of depth, breadth and poise. Best from 2016 through 2035. (JM)" (10/2014) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are roughly 2,800 bottles of the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes to go around. Always a blend of 100% Grenache fro ...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 »
