2016 Delas Freres "Saint-Esprit" Côtes du Rhône Rouge

95 points Decanter: "60% Syrah, 40% Grenache. Lovely rich opulent and floral, black berry and plum nose, the palate is big with well layered fruit, attractively firm but soft tannin and hints of oak, a big wine with a lovely finish. *Gold Medal Winner Decanter Asia Wine Awards*" (7/2017) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Grenache, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone Saint-Esprit is a screaming value.

2015 Domaine Calendal "Plan de Dieu" Côtes du Rhône-Villages Top Pick!
2015 Domaine Calendal "Plan de Dieu" Côtes du Rhône-Villages

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Always a value and well-known Rhône oenologist Philippe Cambie’s own label, the 2015 Côtes du Rhône Villages Plan de Dieu Calendal is a blockbuster blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Mourvèdre that offers full-bodied, rich, even decadent notes of cassis, crushed flowers, licorice and hints of vanilla bean. It has a killer mid-palate, sweet tannin and a big finish, all of which make it just about impossible to resist. Still, it should keep nicely for at least 5-7 years. (JD)" (10/2016)

This full-bodied blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault boasts wonderfully supple, creamy tannins, raspberry and cherry fruit, and a dusting of cinnamon and allspice on the long, dusty finish.

2016 Chateau Sixtine Chateauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The flagship is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Château Sixtine, and it's a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre brought up in barrel. Black and blue fruits, graphite, licorice and pot roast like nuances all emerge from this huge, unctuous, concentrated beauty that tick s all the pleasure boxes.

2016 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "Piedlong" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

It's richly concentrated yet velvety, with a long, peppery finish. It looks to be a beauty. Daniel Brunier said that all of the estate's 2016 reds are 15.5% alcohol or more, yet I didn't find excessive heat in any of them—a testament to the richness of the wines and the balance achieved in this vintage.

Hermitage-like with its cassis and blackberry fruits, scorched earth and graphite aromatics, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, terrific purity, ripe tannin and outstanding length.

The nose is an exciting blend of flowers, minerals and fruit, while the palate is full-bodied and generous without the hardness or austerity of the 2015.

94-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Lastly, the 2015 Gigondas Hautes Garrigues (60/40 Grenache and Mourvèdre) is a beauty boasting killer notes of dark fruits, crushed rocks, pepper, garrigue and scorched earth. This seriously good 2015 has building richness, a stacked mid-palate and a huge finish, all suggesting short-term cellaring will be your friend. It will keep for two decades of more." (10/2017) 93-95 points Vinous: "Full ruby. Smoke-accented aromas of red and dark berry liqueur, incense, spicecake and candied flowers show outstanding energy and clarity. Sweet, seamless and broad in the mouth, offering con ...Read More »

2015 Ferraton Père et Fils "La Source" Saint-Joseph

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another huge, sexy wine is the 2015 St Joseph La Source, which at this quality, sells for a song. Black raspberries, cassis, red currants, licorice and graphite all emerge from this full-bodied beauty that has sweet tannin and a stacked mid-palate. It will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and drink well for over a decade. Twenty-eight bucks? More please. The quality (and number of cuvées) from this estate continues to soar, and this is easily the finest lineup up of wines I’ve tasted from this team.

2016 Vincent Paris "Granit 30" Cornas (Pre-Arrival)

91-93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Looking at the Cornas releases, the 2016 Cornas Granite 30 comes from the Patou and Saint Pierre lieux-dits and was completely destemmed before aging in a mix of barrels. It’s a ripe, vibrant beauty that's overflowing with fruit. Blackberries, blueberries, violets, spring flowers and hints of minerality all give way to a full-bodied, unctuous effort that has good acidity and sweet tannin. It's another no-brainer wine from this estate." (1/2018) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Cornas Granit 30 had been blended and was in tank awaiting bottling during my visit.

2016 Tardieu-Laurent "Cuvée Spéciale" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The tiny production 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Spéciale is Grenache dominated and comes from 100-year-old vines planted in the sandy portions of the famed la Crau lieu-dit. It looks to be one of the stars in the vintage. Blackberries, pepper, violets, and earth all emerge from this full-bodied, massively concentrated, Grenache that has sweet tannin, no hard edges and the opulence and purity of this sensational vintage."

2015 Domaine Raymond Usseglio "Cuvée Girard" Chateauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The stunning 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Girard is blended exclusively for the American importer, Peter Weygandt, and bottled unfiltered. It's about 85% Grenache, with the balance made up of Mourvèdre, Counoise and Cinsault. What makes it so compelling is the combination of fragrant raspberries, sinewy tannins and silky finish, all of which suggest it will age well for 20 years after the vintage. It's powerful, concentrated and yet feels fresh and lively. (JC)" (10/2017) 93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Slightly deeper and richer, yet no less tannic, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée ...Read More »

2016 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape(1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the grand vin, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is backward and dense, with a huge mid-palate, notes of framboise, black cherries, roasted herbs, nori, and spice, a thick, opulent texture, and yet no sense of weight or heaviness. With ripe, polished tannin and a blockbuster finish, it might just be the greatest wine from this estate to date." (10/2017) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In contrast to the Piedlong, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is a darker, richer wine. Yes, there are ripe cherries but also cola, blueberries and spice. Full-bodied and rich, it should easily outdistance ...Read More »

2015 E. Guigal Condrieu (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Leading off the 2015 whites, the 2015 Condrieu is a blockbuster that delivers gorgeous notes of apricot, white flowers, tangerine, and crushed rocks. Offering a level of depth and richness normally reserved for the La Doriane cuvée, it’s full-bodied, layered, pure, and straight up delicious. Drink 2018-2024." (1/2018) 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 or ...Read More »

2016 Domaine des Remizières "Cuvée Christophe" Crozes-Hermitage Blanc

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Incorporating 15% Roussanne, the Marsanne dominated 2016 Crozes-Hermitage Cuvée Christophe Blanc spent 10 months in barrel before bottling. Its medium gold color is followed by a terrific bouquet of buttered pineapple, citrus blossom and honeysuckle. Clean, pure and beautifully balanced, with good acidity and ample density and texture, it's a big step up over the base cuvée." (1/2018) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Barrel-fermented in 40% new oak, the 2016 Crozes-Hermitage Cuvee Christophe Blanc is a blend of 85% Marsanne and 15% Roussanne. It smells of singed marshmallow, which gives w ...Read More »

2016 Ferraton Pere et Fils "Lieu Dit Paradis" St. Joseph (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2016 Ferraton Pere et Fils "Lieu Dit Paradis" St. Joseph (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another wine that has a smokin' good bouquet is the 2016 Saint Joseph Lieu Dit Paradis. The Paradis Lieu-Dit is located just outside of Mauve and is a mix of granite, loess and alluvial soils. Cassis, blackcurrants, crushed rocks, peppery herbs and earth all give way to a medium to full-bodied, concentrated, structured yet still elegant Saint Joseph. It shows the vintage’s forward, charming style, yet will be at its best with short-term cellaring. The only downside to these latest releases from Ferraton? They’re made in tiny quantities and there’s just ...Read More »

94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of 70% Grenache and 15% Syrah and Mourvèdre that’s from the sandy soils around the estate, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Mourre des Perdrix offers more elegance and purity, with terrific notes of incense, lavender, spice and assorted red and black fruits. It’s going to be the finest vintage of this cuvée to date and has sweet tannin, moderate acidity and a great, great finish." (10/2017)

97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Coming from Barruol’s favorite vineyard located on just up the hill from the domaine, the 2016 Gigondas Le Poste is another huge wine, and probably the richness, ripest example of this cuvee I’ve tasted. Possessing almost overflowing amounts of blackberry fruits, graphite, spring flowers and huge minerality, it offers awesome purity, full-bodied richness, and a great, great finish. I can’t wait to taste this from bottle. Louis Barruol’s Chateau de Saint Cosme is unquestionably one of the reference point estates in Gigondas, as well as the entire souther ...Read More »

2005 Château de Montfaucon "Baron Louis" Côtes du Rhône

90 points Wine Spectator: "Still muscular, with blackberry and black currant fruit, black tea, graphite and espresso notes that all meld together nicely on the lengthy finish. (Web-2009)" Jancis Robinson: "Very rich and smooth and still quite vigorous. No loss of fruit from its time in bottle. There is still considerable ripe fruit character and quite a bit of dry tannin on the finish. No hurry to drink this." (12/2009) K&L Notes: Just across the Rhône river from the esteemed vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, this 88-acre estate is owned and operated by Rodolphe de Pins, a UC Davis graduate and former member of t...

2016 M. Chapoutier "Croix de Bois" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Last of the 2016-barrel samples, the 2016 Châteauneuf-Du-Pape Croix de Bois comes from a parcel on the eastern side of the appellation and is, as always, 100% Grenache brought up in concrete. It's similarly colored to the Barbe Rac and offers the classic ripe, pure, sexy style of the cuvée. Blackberries, blueberries, crushed herbs, pepper and beautiful minerality all emerge from this full-bodied, uber-concentrated, ultra-pure 2016 and like a lot of 2016s might just be another best yet.

2016 Domaine Giraud "Les Sables d'Arene" Côtes-du-Rhône Vieilles Vignes Rouge

The 2016 Côtes du Rhône Les Sables d'Arène comes all from Lirac and is a blend of 80% Grenache and 10% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre, aged all in concrete. Its medium ruby color is followed by perfumed notes of red and black fruits, garrigue and sandy/loamy soil aromatics. Fine, elegant, medium-bodied and seamless on the palate, it’s ideal for drinking over the coming 4-6 years."

Take the 2015 Côtes du Rhône Jules Rochebonne, for instance; this beauty has tons of black and blue fruits, roasted herbs, pan drippings and hints of chocolate in a medium to full-bodied, mouth-filling, chewy and rich style. It has outstanding potential and is a big, rich, age-worthy red.(JD)" (10/2016)
