2013 Château Pesquié "Terrasses" Ventoux

These carry to a medium to full-bodied, elegant and balanced red that gains depth and richness with time in the glass, has loads Provencal character and a great finish.

2015 Domaine Durieu "Lucile Avril" Chateauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Domaine Durieu "Lucile Avril" Chateauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I loved the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Lucille Avril, and I’ve bought and cellared this cuvée for years (the 2007 is killer juice). Big, structured and tannic, yet with sensational purity and classic notes of blackberries, raspberries, roasted meats and roasted herbs, it expands on the palate, is impeccably balanced and will be an age-worthy Châteauneuf du Pape. I’ve had numerous splendid bottles from this estate over the past decade and I continue to love the wines from the young Vincent Durieu."

2015 Domaine Michel & Stephane Ogier "La Combe de Malleval" Condrieu

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Stephan commented that he did everything he could to maintain freshness in his 2015 whites, and he’s done a fabulous job with both Condrieu releases. The 2015 Condrieu La Combe de Malleval comes from two separate parcels and offers a textbook array of apricot, flower oil, crushed rocks and sappy flowers, with building depth and richness on the palate. It’s a gorgeous Condrieu that will be even better this time next year and drink well for 4-5 years at a minimum. Over the last decade or so, Stephane Ogier has raised the bar in just about every way poss ...Read More »

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

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...

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 Domaine des Bosquets "La Colline" Gigondas (Pre-Arrival)

96-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Coming from a small corner parcel of the La Colline vineyard, the utterly sensational 2015 Gigondas La Colline is primarily Grenache that includes a touch of whole clusters and is still aging in one- to three-year-old demi-muids. It possesses a huge nose of black raspberries, blackcurrants, toasted spice and garrigue in a stacked, full-bodied, concentrated, yet weightless style. It’s certainly up with the top handful of wines in the vintage and should not be missed! Readers wanting to get a hold of the best of the 2015 vintage need to latch onto these wi ...Read More »

2012 Bosquet des Papes "Chante le Merle Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A remarkable effort, the blockbuster 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Chante le Merle Vieilles Vignes comes close to the 2010 in terms of quality. Coming from a selection of the top plots and old vines of the estate, co-fermented, and with no destemming, it offers off-the-charts notes of cassis, chocolate-covered cherries, garrigue, licorice and toasted spice. Possessing massive richness and depth, with tons of glycerin, texture and length, it stays remarkably elegant, balanced and pure on the palate, with building tannin and yet no hard edges. This knockout Châ ...Read More »

2014 Domaine Charvin Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94-95 points Vinous: "Brilliant ruby-red. Powerful raspberry, floral pastille and Asian spice aromas show outstanding clarity and vivacity. Energetic flavors of red fruit preserves and lavender are given spine and definition by zesty minerality. The floral and red fruit notes carry strongly through a clinging, sharply focused finish framed by smooth, slow-building tannins. This wine is shaping up to be a classic Charvin rendition of Châteauneuf, displaying abundant upfront fruit along with the depth and balance to ensure a long, graceful evolution. (JR)" (4/2016) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the gem ...Read More »
