2010 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Performing considerably better than it did prior to bottling, the 2010 Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape is one of the all-time great Vieux Telegraphes I have tasted in the last 3+ decades. I believe it is even superior to the 2007, which I had several weeks ago. The 2010 boasts a dense purple color along with a sumptuous bouquet of spring flowers, boysenberries, black cherries, black currants, nori (the sushi seaweed wrapper), black olives, licorice and pepper. This full-bodied, meaty, thick, juicy effort possesses a boatload of tannin, but it also h ...Read More »

2013 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape Top Pick!
2013 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape

91 points Vinous: "Deep red. Fresh, mineral-tinged red and dark berry scents are given depth by suggestions of licorice and cola. 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. Firm and substantial with more obvious tannin than most but sufficient (just) fruit too. Not that sweet. Racy, food wine. Cool overall."

2010 E. Guigal Châteauneuf-du-Pape

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A stunning effort and showing the class of the vintage, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape is comprised of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre that spent 24 months in foudre prior to bottling. Rich, textured and medium to full-bodied, with ample black cherry, olive tapenade and subtle meatiness, this traditional effort stays pure and lively, with fine tannin emerging on the finish. (JD)" (12/2013) 93 points Wine & Spirits: "Long aging in cask and bottle has mellowed this wine into a complex beauty, as notes of smoke, herbs and baking spices weave through the cherry liqueur flavors. ...Read More »

2012 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $80)

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.

2010 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $100+)

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "The 2010 Beaucastel is a tour de force, brilliantly combining espresso and black olive notes with bright raspberry fruit, while dark earthy notes provide a solid base. The feel on the palate is ample, with tannins that are a bit dusty but not tough or chewy. The long, mouthwatering finish bodes well for the future. Drink now–2030." (2/2015) 96 points Wine Spectator: "*Ranked #8, Top 100 Wines of 2013* Dark, dense and very closed now, this has a tremendous core of crushed plum, linzer torte and blackberry confiture waiting in reserve.

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Up in the top handful of wines in the vintage (which should come as no surprise to anyone who follows this estate), the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, rich and layered Châteauneuf that doesn’t put a foot wrong. 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 »

Medium-bodied, pure, elegant, and lively with racy acidity on the finish, it’s beautifully done and will drink nicely for 4-5 years. (JD)" (10/2015)

96 points Wine Spectator: "One of the more endowed 2009s, this is packed with dark smoldering cocoa, mesquite, tobacco and roasted fig notes, all inlaid with pure cassis and plum preserves fruit flavors. Long and authoritative on the finish, with singed vanilla bean and tar notes adding length and dimension. Best from 2015 through 2026."

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Chaupin, which I was able to taste (and drink) from multiple bottles, is a beautiful Grenache that comes from the cooler, northeastern edge of the appellation. Coming almost all from the Chapouin lieu-dit (it gets a small bit from La Janasse), it gives up the classic notes of black berries, spring flowers, violets, and licorice that I always seem to find in this cuvee. Building nicely on the palate, it is medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured, has tons of sweet fruit and solid, if not firm, tannin that come out on ...Read More »

2010 Raymond Usseglio "Cuvée Impériale-Vignes Centenaires" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A candidate for perfection, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Imperiale Vignes Centenaire is clearly the greatest wine I have ever tasted from Raymond Usseglio, even eclipsing their remarkable 2007. Don’t be surprised if it merits a three-digit score in five or six years. Somewhat closed, but bursting with potential, the wine is inky/purple to the rim and boasts abundant amounts of concentrated, jammy blackberry, kirsch, licorice, lavender, forest floor, white chocolate and a hint of truffles in its magnificent perfume. Some tannins appear in the mouth, ...Read More »

2012 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "What I think might end up being the best Beaucastel since the 1990 or 2001, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape offers a full-bodied, decadent style to go with awesome black and blue fruits, garrigue, licorice, crushed flowers and violets. The purity here is truly something, and it has fabulous mid-palate concentration, building tannin and massive texture. Given all of the fruit and texture here, it will no doubt drink well in its youth, but it should still be alive and kicking after two decades as well.

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.

It’s a gorgeous wine that can be consumed in its fresh and vibrant youth, or cellared for a decade or two. It’s a knockout white that should not be missed! Drink now-2032."

2010 Domaine Bois de Boursan "Cuvée des Félix" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Absolutely magnificent is the opaque ruby/purple 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Felix. Notes of root beer/beet root interwoven with roasted Provencal herbs, black currants and even blacker fruits such as blackberries are prominent in this full-bodied, concentrated wine, which has fabulous fruit, sumptuous, a deep, multi-layered texture and a sensational finish of close to 40+ seconds. Acidity is present and there is precision and uplift to the big, bold flavors the 2010 Cuvee de Felix possesses. Drink it over the next 15+ years. This has been a reliab ...Read More »

2013 Château de la Font du Loup Châteauneuf-du-Pape

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape is a classic wine from this estate and gives up pretty notes of strawberries, licorice, peppery herbs and leather. The wine is made from 60% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 15% Syrah and the rest Cinsault. Drink this medium-bodied, elegant and lightly textured 2013 over the coming 5-6 years. It’s a sexy, forward beauty that’s hard to resist. While no 2014s were submitted, both 2013 Châteauneuf du Papes were outstanding and had seductive, supple, if not sexy profiles that are geared for near term drinking." (10/2015)

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 »

1995 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Wine Spectator: "Very youthful, with a ripe core of red currant and raspberry fruit and licorice flavor surrounded by creamy tannins. Plenty of smoke, mineral and tobacco notes chiming in, but this still has a ways to go, with plenty of grip still on the finish.--1995 Châteauneuf-du-Pape retrospective. Drink now through 2025." (3/2006) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Still closed and tannic, the 1995 requires an additional 5-6 years of cellaring. It should keep well through 2020. (RP)" (1/2003) K&L Notes: 93 points Neil Martin's Wine Journal: "A light nose of red cherries, raspberry, lawn cuttings and a touch of iron... Read More »

2001 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Beaucastel has been on a terrific qualitative roll over the last four vintages, and the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape (which Francois Perrin feels is similar to the 1990, although I don’t see that as of yet) is a 15,000-case blend of 30% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, 10% Counoise, and the balance split among the other permitted varietals of the appellation. This inky/ruby/purple-colored cuvee offers a classic Beaucastel bouquet of new saddle leather, cigar smoke, roasted herbs, black truffles, underbrush, and blackberry as well as cherry fruit. It is a ...Read More »

2005 Domaine De La Vieille Julienne Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The most masculine and structured of the group, the 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape is locked and loaded, with serious concentration, big tannin and no shortage of length on the finish. Coming from a year that featured a cool summer and then scorching temps around harvest, this beauty doles out loads of creme de cassis, licorice, graphite and crushed rock-like minerality, as well as a seamless, perfectly balanced profile. Give it another 2-3 years and drink it through 2025. (JD)" (8/2014) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Showing beautifully, with intense fig, black currant and boysenberry fruit ...Read More »

2007 Tardieu-Laurent "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Wine Spectator: "This is crammed with a massive core of blueberry compote, braised fig and mulled blackberry and boysenberry fruit flavors, all wound up with graphite tannins and backed by a strong, iron-filled spine. This has serious depth and drive, with gorgeous mocha and espresso aromatics flittering throughout. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Best from 2010 through 2024. (JM)" (11/2009) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is fashioned from old vine Grenache (90%) and the rest Syrah and Mourvedre, the last two components aged in new oak.

2013 Chateau de la Font du Loup "Le Puy Rolland" Châteauneuf du Pape

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Similar in style to traditional cuvée, the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape le Puy Rolland is 100% Grenache that spent 18 months all in older foudre. It too offers a perfumed, medium-bodied, supple and sexy style to go with lots of wild strawberry, dried underbrush, kirsch, and river rock like aromas and flavors. It is a relatively forward Châteauneuf du Pape that’s geared for drinking in its youth, but it will dish out tons of pleasure and is a great drink." (10/2015)

2012 Domaine la Barroche "Signature" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing slightly better now than it did on release (which is common for all of Julien's wines, and the '12s in general), the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Signature is a blend of 65% Grenache, 16% Mourvedre, 13% Syrah and 6% other permitted varieties. It's young and fruity, yet still delivers tons of pleasure with its cassis, licorice, crushed flower and garrigue aromas and flavors. Beautifully fruited, rounded, supple and with sweet tannin, I suspect it will age gracefully (similar to '06) and drink well for all its life. (JD)" (9/2015) 92 points Vinous: "Deep ruby. Heady spice- ...Read More »

2005 Domaine du Clos du Caillou "Les Quartz" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Despite its heft, it is polished and driven, showing the strength of this great vintage. (JM)" (12/2007) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Crushed rocks, spring flowers, black cherries, raspberries, and cassis all make an appearance in the gorgeous dark ruby/purple-colored 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Quartz. This impeccably well-made effort possesses the most minerality, and is a distinctive expression of Chateauneuf du Pa ...Read More »

2009 Domaine de Saint Prefert Collection "Charles Giraud" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Wine Spectator: "This gushes forth, with loads of plum, blackberry and cassis that saturate the palate, while apple wood, tobacco and perfumy incense keep everything fresh and alluring through the very lengthy finish, where a lively peppery hint leaves a mouthwatering feel. Best from 2013 through 2024." (10/2011) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "What I tend to think of as the top cuvee, although it is not that certain when you taste these wines next to each other, is the Chateauneuf du Pape Collection Charles Giraud. The 2009, which is showing better from bottle than it did last year, is a wonderfully com ...Read More »

2009 Domaine Grand Veneur "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The most limited cuvee (350 cases) is the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (a blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah from 50-100 year old vines located in the northern sector of the appellation). Its opaque purple color is accompanied by a gorgeous perfume of graphite, truffles, damp earth, cassis, kirsch, licorice and spice box. Despite the fact that it sees a lot of new oak, it reveals no evidence of wood. The fruit dominates in this quintessential, classic, full-bodied, powerful, massive as well as surprisingly pure and elegant Cha ...Read More »

2010 Domaine Galevan "Saint Georges" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape St.-Georges possesses magnificent fruit in addition to a skyscraper-like mouthfeel, majestic richness, a layered texture, phenomenal purity and a classic style displaying plenty of bouquet garni, licorice, seaweed, cassis and kirsch characteristics. This sensational 2010 is soft enough to be drunk now, but will be even better with 2-3 years of cellaring. It should last for two decades. A microscopic estate owned by Coralie Goumarre, Domaine Galevan was established, remarkably, in 1780, but the first estate-bottled wine did no ...Read More »

2012 Clos Saint-Jean "Deus Ex Machina" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Deus Ex Machina is a blend of 60% Grenache aged in foudre (from close to 100-year-old vines) and 40% Mourvedre aged in demi-muids. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by incredible notes of cassis, roasted meats, licorice, toasted spice and a liquid rock-like minerality. Full-bodied, massive and concentrated, yet also seamless, elegant and incredibly polished, it flows onto the palate with building tannin, no hard edges and perfect balance. I wouldn’t be surprised to see this merit a perfect rating in the future, and it sh ...Read More »
