2015 Château de L'Ou "Secret de Schistes" Côtes Catalanes (Elsewhere $40) Top Pick!
2015 Château de L'Ou "Secret de Schistes" Côtes Catalanes (Elsewhere $40)

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I was blown away by the IGP Côtes Catalanes Secret de Schistes, and it’s unquestionably my favorite vintage of this cuvee to date (I’ve compared this wine to a Syrah from Manfred Krankl’s SQN in the past). Notions of crème de cassis, lead pencil shavings, roasted herbs and crushed rock nuances give way to a full-bodied, gorgeously textured red that has terrific concentration and a great, great finish. Like all the cuvees here, it’s 100% Syrah that was fermented and aged all in barrel. Count me as a fan.

2016 Domaine de Verquière Côtes-du-Rhône

Wine Spectator: "Direct, with rounded plum and cherry fruit flavors, backed by a light red licorice note on the open finish. (JM, Web-2017)" K&L Notes: The Verquiere estate has been passed down from father to son for many generations and is now managed by brothers Romain and Thibaut Chamfort. Following age-old traditions and sustainable practices, the estate was recently certified organic. The Cotes du Rhone is a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah, grown on chalky clay soils with loads of large pebbles in the vineyards. Verquiere recently returned to us after a long hiatus and we a...

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Starting out with the 2015s, the 2015 Côtes Catalanes Infiniment de l'Ou comes from vines around the estate and is distinctly different than the two releases from the Agly Valley, offering a ripper, rounded style as well as ample dark fruit, graphite, tobacco and scorched earth.

2015 Chateau Puech-Haut "La Closerie du Pic" Coteaux du Languedoc Pic Saint Loup

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Just bottled three weeks ago, the 2015 Pic Saint Loup La Closerie Du Pic is certainly one of the gems in this terrific vintage. Its vibrant purple color is followed by sensational notes of black raspberries, toasted spice, cassis and even a hint of bacon fat. With medium to full-bodied richness, a seamless texture, integrated acidity and a blockbuster finish, drink this straight up fabulous Pic Saint Loup anytime over the coming 7-8 years. Hats off to the team at Puech-Haut, and consultant Philippe Cambie, for this sensational wine! (JD)" (4/2017)

2015 Château Saint Roch "Kerbuccio" Maury Sec

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Sporting a deep, inky color, the 2015 Maury Sec Kerbuccio is fabulous stuff, as well as a smoking value. Blackberry jam, roasted herbs, black licorice, tapenade and saddle leather give way to a rich, concentrated, seamless red that has moderate acidity, sweet tannin and a great finish. The blend is 80% Grenache and 20% Carignan, aged in 50% new demi-muids, and as I said when I tasted it from barrel, it’s heavenly juice that tastes like it cost three times its price."

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A stunning bargain from Lafage is the 2014 Tessellae Old Vines, a blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre, all aged in concrete. Much of it comes from 70-year-old vines planted in limestone and clay soils. A delicious, dense ruby wine with notes of red and black cherries, earth, spice, pepper and a touch of Provençal garrigue.

2016 Domaine la Croix Belle "Caringole" Côtes de Thongue Rouge

Just outside the city of Montpellier lie the vineyards of La Croix Belle, a family owned and operated Domaine that traces it roots back to the region more than two centuries. Francoise and Jacques Boyer assumed contril of the property in the late 70s with an eye towards making clean expressive wines reflecting the region. A lot of replanting was done, yields were lowered and modern winemaking techniques and facilities were adopted. This eye for detail had delivered us some of the freshest and most compelling values of the season. The Caringole is a b... Read More »

2015 Clos de l'Anhel "Les Terrassettes" Corbières (Previously $17) Top Pick!
2015 Clos de l'Anhel "Les Terrassettes" Corbières (Previously $17)

Our dear friend and vigneron Sophie Guiraudon is always such a delight to visit. Her vineyards are in one of the higher altitude parts of Corbières. I met winemaker Sophie Guiraudon a while back at the organic wine fair Millesime Bio. It's an annual event where organic winemakers from all over the world gather to show their wines. She adores Carignan as a grape variety and has become one of its great champions in the region. She also farms delicious Grenache, Syrah and a tiny amount of Mourvèdre. We call her the one-woman wrecking crew, as she farms, per... Read More »

2015 Famille Perrin "Domaine du Clos des Tourelles" Gigondas (Pre-Arrival) New!
2015 Famille Perrin "Domaine du Clos des Tourelles" Gigondas (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The finest vintage to date, the 2015 Gigondas Le Clos des Tourelles comes from a tiny vineyard located just inside the village of Gigondas. Incorporating a touch of Syrah, this Grenache dominated beauty reveals a deep ruby/purple color as well as off the chart notes of black raspberries, black cherries, pepper, garrigue, and tons of that classic Gigondas spice. I wrote “Wow” more than once in my notes and this full-bodied 2015 has ultra-fine tannin, perfect balance, and a stacked mid-palate. Give bottles 2-3 years and drink over the following 15+ years. ...Read More »

2015 Cécile Chassagne Gigondas

90-92 points Vinous: "Vivid ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of ripe red berries, candied flowers and garrigue pick up a hint of peppery spices as the wine opens up. Juicy and expansive in the mouth, offering sweet, spice-tinged raspberry, cherry and floral pastille flavors lifted by a spine of tangy acidity. Finishes long and appealingly sweet, featuring smooth tannins and suave, floral-dominated persistence. (JR)" (9/2017) K&L Notes: Named for the family's second-generation winemaker, Cécile Chassagne took over the vineyard in Gigondas that had been originally planted by her father in 1974. Th...

2016 #Lou by Peyrassol Côtes de Provence Rosé Top Pick!
2016 #Lou by Peyrassol Côtes de Provence Rosé

A blend of Cinsault, Grenache, and Syrah, this Provence Rosé is a perfect apéritif. The pale salmon color introduces a spicy nose with reverberates on the palate with red berries and peach and transitions to brighter, more more citric tones on the finish.

2015 Clos de l'Anhel "Lolo de l'Anhel" Corbieres

I met winemaker Sophie Guiraudon a few years ago at the organic wine fair Millésime Bio. It's an annual event where organic winemakers from all over the world gather to show their wines. I tasted with her and was immediately impressed with the quality of the wines. So much so, I made an arrangements to visit her winery right after the fair ended. Sophie is a true one-woman show, farming 25 acres of vines while running her humble facility in the region of Corbieres. The vines for the "Lolo" cuvee are planted on silty-clay limestone soils which lend freshn... Read More »

2015 Domaine Viticole "Malmont" Côtes du Rhône (Previously $19)

Wine Spectator: "Fresh, with a full-throated display of lively raspberry and plum sauce flavors, inlaid with enticing anise and black tea accents. Offers a long, fine-grained finish. Grenache and Syrah. Drink now through 2018. 450 cases made. (JM)" (4/2017) K&L Notes: Malmont is a single-vineyard labor of love. Deeply terraced and steep, with plentiful rocky soil, the Malmont vineyard is no breeze to cultivate -the vineyard's name means "bad mountain." But it produces deeply colored and structured wines that have made the effort worth it for vigneron Nicolas Haeni, who was able to s... Read More »

2015 Bosquet des Papes "Tradition" Chateauneuf-du-Pape

90-92 points Vinous: "Bright ruby-red. High-pitched, spice-accented red fruit aromas are complicated by floral and herb nuances that build with air. Sweet, penetrating raspberry and cherry flavors show very good depth and energy, while licorice pastille and white pepper qualities develop slowly. Rich yet lively in style, finishing with very good focus and gentle tannins that frame the appealingly sweet fruit. This wine is an excellent example of a "basic" Châteauneuf." (3/2017) 91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the 2015s from bottle, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape checks in as a blend of 75% Grenache, 1 ...Read More »

2016 Domaine de l'Ermitage "Victor" Costières de Nîmes Rosé Top Pick!
2016 Domaine de l'Ermitage "Victor" Costières de Nîmes Rosé

Costières de Nîmes is at the southernmost part of the Rhône Valley, on the opposite bank from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. One of our best new finds is Château de l'Ermitage, which produces three terrific values with eminent drinkability. The estate's history traces back to the 12th century, when the winery produced wine for the pilgrims of St-Jacques de Compostelle who were traveling the Santiago de Compostela. The property is now owned by the Castillon family, and today Michel and his son Jerome manage the vineyards and winemaking. The "Victor" is named for th... Read More »

2010 Domaine des Sénéchaux Châteauneuf-du-Pape Top Pick!
2010 Domaine des Sénéchaux Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from an identical blend, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape is a hedonistic Chateauneuf du Pape fruit bomb. Super-rich with layers of glycerin and fruit, this full-bodied classic smells like a Provencal open-air fruit and vegetable market. Loaded with slightly blacker fruits than its 2011 counterpart, there are also hints of charcuterie, spice box, cedar and Christmas fruitcake in this full-throttle, rich, concentrated wine. Drink it over the next 12-15+ years. This nearly 65-acre estate is owned by the famous and much loved Bordeaux proprietor, Jean-Mi ...Read More »

2014 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape Top Pick!
2014 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape is a charming, surprisingly ripe, textured effort in the vintage and is well worth your time and money. Bing cherries, kirsch, roasted herbs and licorice all flow from this medium-bodied, balanced and lengthy 2014 that will drink nicely for at least 5-6 years. Another rising star, the young Alexander Favier continues to release deep, rich and concentrated Châteauneuf du Papes that have beautiful purity of fruit as well as classic Southern Rhône characters. (JD)" (10/2016) K&L Notes: Chante Cigale means singing cicada. The property has be... Read More »

2014 Château Saint Jacques d'Albas "Le Chateau d'Albas" Minervois

90 points Decanter: "A wine of great elegance, with juicy fruit cast against a lovely evolution of floral, savoury characters, with more development to come. *Decanter World Wine Awards 2017*" (5/2017) K&L Notes: Situated to the east of the walled city of Carcassonne and in the shadow of the Montagne Noire (Black Mountains) lies Minervois. The village of Laure-Minervois is home to the winery Chateau Saint Jacques d'Albas, a 90 hectare estate in the hills above the village. Some 26 hectares of the estate are planted to vines with the rest composed of forests and creeks acting as a natura... Read More »

2015 Comte Louis de Clermont-Tonnerre (Alain Corcia) Rasteau (Previously $15)

Alain Corcia founded his négociant company back in 1983. Originally focused on bottling Burgundy, they expanded their grower relationships to include wines from the Rhône, Bordeaux and even Champagne. Our relationship with Alain goes back over three decades, and he and his wife Patricia have supplied us with some of our greatest values from their respective regions. As a négociant, Mr. Corcia is very hands-on with the wines, making each one in its home region and choosing not to blend across appellations, all the better to reflect each wine's true terroi...

2015 Domaine de la Mordorée "La Reine des Bois" Lirac (Previously $30)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Moving to the reds from Lirac, the estate releases two cuvées: the base la Dame Rousse and the flagship La Reine des Bois. The 2015 Lirac Cuvée de la Reine des Bois is a beauty and has a distinct minerality in its black raspberry, black cherry, graphite and bouquet garni-like aromas and flavors. Beautifully rich, supple and textured on the palate, yet with plenty of underlying grip and structure, it should hit the ground running and drink nicely through 2025. Since the untimely death of Christophe Delorme last year, the winemaking at Domaine de la Mor ...Read More »

2015 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I loved the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape from Claire Michel and it’s a classic blend of 75% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault, mostly from rolled stone terroirs, that was partially destemmed and brought up all in foudre. It’s a downright sexy, voluptuous 2015 offering textbook notes of kirsch liqueur, ground pepper, herbes de Provence, and incense. It picks up more dark fruit with time in the glass, is full-bodied, has plenty of fat and glycerin, and ample tannin, although they’re so polished you have to hunt for them. This gorgeous example ...Read More »
