2010 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $100+) Top Pick!
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: "*#8 on 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.

2014 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Not yet bottled, the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape is one of the few inky colored wines in the vintage. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and ripe with notable tannin, it offers beautiful notes of blackberry, shitake mushrooms, licorice and pepper meats. It plays in the 2014 vintage’s forward, supple nature, but has real depth and concentration. I don’t think it will be the longest lived Beaucastel, but it will have 15-20 years of overall longevity. While 2013 and 2014 are no doubt difficult vintages, this is still a brilliant lineup of wines from the Per ...Read More »

2009 Domaine Charvin Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape (which tips the scales around 15% natural alcohol) is a great example of traditional Chateauneuf du Pape winemaking. A dense dark ruby color is followed by a sexy nose of raspberries, ground pepper, spice box, damp earth, kirsch and dark currants. Full-bodied, complex, elegant and already irresistible as the tannins have completely melted away, it can be drunk now and over the next 15+ years.

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 »

2014 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I love the traditional 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc and this blend of equal parts Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc and Clairette offers classic notes of citrus blossom, dried herbs, spice and hints of white flowers on the nose. 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)

2013 Bosquet des Papes "Tradition" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

90-92 points Vinous: "Ruby-red. Smoky red berry and cherry scents show good clarity and pick up a spicy element with air. Supple, open-knit and appealingly sweet, with a hint of white pepper sharpening the zesty redcurrant and raspberry flavors. The spicy quality repeats on the clinging finish, which shows just hint of dusty tannins. I suspect that this wine will provide plenty of appeal soon after release.

2012 Domaine Pierre Usseglio "Mon Aïeul" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $90)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Usseglio's 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Mon Aieul is a beautiful wine that comes mostly from three terroirs: Les Grand Serres (96-year-old vines) in the south, la Crau (78-year-old vines) in the eastern portion of the appellation, and La Guigasse (75-year-old vines), which is roughly in the middle/north central portion of the appellation near Rayas and Pignan. Coming from 100% Grenache and miniscule yields of 22 hectoliters per hectare (which is basically nothing), it offers gorgeous black raspberry, black cherry, herbes de Provence, pepper and Asia ...Read More »

2009 Paul Autard "Cuvée Juline" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Wine Spectator: "A beauty, with lush, velvety structure wonderfully embedded in the dense, fleshy core of warm plum, fig compote, hoisin sauce and melted licorice snap notes. The finish is inlaid with spice and Lapsang souchong tea notes, with a flicker of anise as well. Not shy about its toast, but wonderfully integrated from start to finish. Best from 2013 through 2025." (10/2011) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque purple.

2014 Château de Beaucastel "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A big step up over the classic cuvee (which isn’t always a given), the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Roussanne Vieilles Vignes is 100% Roussanne from ancient vines, some of which are over 100 years in age. A deeper, richer version of the traditional cuvee, it reveals a medium-gold color to go with sensational notes of white currants, quince, brioche, honeysuckle and lemon curd. Full-bodied, beautifully concentrated and rich, yet with plenty of acidity, drink this elegant, balanced beauty anytime over the coming 2-3 decades.

Showing a mature, yet still lively and fruit-driven profile of sweet currants, saddle leather, truffle, and garrigue, it stays beautifully rich and seductive on the palate, with layers of sweet fruit, no hard edges and a great finish. Certainly a ripe vintage, yet everything is perfectly proportioned, the tannins are sweet and it is a joy to drink.

Becomes more perfumed with air and finishes sweet, silky and long, with harmonious tannins." (1/2013) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Features a brambly spine, with chestnut and dark licorice snap notes poking out from the core of steeped plum and blackberry coulis. Delivers a juicy, grippy feel through the finish, but this remains silky, with a lingering accent of warm paving stone."

2011 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival, Previously $100)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the stars of the vintage and coming from absurdly low yields of 18 hectoliters per hectare, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape is a full-bodied, seamless effort that exhibits copious kirsch, ground pepper, dried flowers and underbrush as well as incredibly fine tannin, great mid-palate concentration and ample length on the finish. Relatively forward by this estate’s standards, it will be approachable at an earlier age than normal. Nevertheless, it will have 20+ years of evolution and is an awesome effort in the vintage.

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. (JD)" (10/2014) 93 points Vinous: "Opaque ruby.

Shows very good clarity and lift on the palate, with sweet raspberry and rose pastille flavors sharpened by a jolt of blood orange. This supple, open-knit wine is firmed on the back by smooth tannins and should be delicious right out of the gate.

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.

It offers awesome black and blue fruits, violets, licorice and crushed rock-like minerality in its full-bodied, balanced, pure and elegant profile.

2012 Château de Beaucastel "Hommage à Jacques Perrin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $500)

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wine of the vintage is the Perrin’s 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin, and it will most likely merit a perfect rating in another couple of years. Full-bodied, massive and layered on the palate, with awesome purity and freshness, it delivers incredible aromatics of beef blood, truffle, graphite, iron and black and blue fruits. Given all of the fruit and texture, you almost have to hunt for the structure here, but trust me, it’s there.

2009 Henri Bonneau "Réserve des Célestins" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

The balance here is superb, and it gains more and more structure with time in the glass. There’s plenty of similarities to the ’07 (and to a lesser extent, the 2011), and given this showing, it should have a broad drink window. I continue to be baffled by this estate, and given the cellar conditions, I've no idea how what comes out of these filthy barrels tastes so sweet and heavenly. (JD ...Read More »

2010 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne "Les Trois Sources" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

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. While full-bodied, extremely concentrated and massive, the wine is totally harmonious with beautifully integrated acidity, tannin and alcohol (which is no doubt in excess of 16%).

Showing an almost Pinot Noir-like texture with medium to full-bodied richness, sweet tannin and outstanding length, it will certainly be one of the more approachable, forward wines from this estate, and it should be a low to mid-nineties scoring effort.

Muscular and powerful, with a serious, full-bodied profile, it gives up incredible aromas and flavors of creme de cassis, licorice, graphite, beef blood and loamy earth.

(11/2014) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Lastly, the flagship 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape is a classically structured, elegant effort that will evolve gracefully on its balance and harmony. Showing the telltale seaweed, currants, olive, licorice and ample minerality so common in this cuvee, it’s medium to full-bodie ...Read More »

2001 Château Rayas Châuteauneuf-du-Pape Réservé

95 points Wine & Spirits: "No tasting note given." (10/2004) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2001 Rayas Chateauneuf du Pape is more structured and slightly deeper ruby-colored than the light-colored 2000. It also possesses more acidity as well as depth. This terroir-driven effort reveals aromas of raspberries and sweet kirsch as well as a medium-bodied, vigorously fresh, lively style. There is also good flavor authority. (RP)" (2/2004) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Nose initially dominated by meat, toasted nuts and orange peel; showed a lively raspberry aroma with aeration. Tight, dense and peppery on entry, then lush and silky i ...Read More »

2007 Mas de Boislauzon "Cuvée du Quet" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The biggest surprise in these tastings was the phenomenal performance of the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Quet. Normally a blend of 65% Grenache and 35% Mourvedre, the 2007's composition changed to 80% Grenache (all aged in tank) and 20% Mourvedre (aged in small oak barrels.) This wine literally blew me away. Since this is a PG-rated publication, I can not print my original comments upon tasting this wine. Let’s just say the exquisite aromatics were astounding. They include creme de cassis, lavender, roasted meats, new saddle leather, and spice box. ...Read More »

1995 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

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) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A light nose of red cherries, raspberry, lawn cuttings and a touch of iron rust, all with very fine definition and lift. The palate is soft on the entry, full of rounded red-berried fruit with a touch of leather. Very harmonious, gaining wei ...Read More »

2012 Domaine la Barroche "Pure" Châteauneuf-du-Pape New!
2012 Domaine la Barroche "Pure" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing beautifully (a lot of 2012s have put on weight since I tasted them on release), the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Pure has plenty of similarities to the 2010, with terrific purity and freshness in its blackberry, kirsch, currants and ground herb-driven bouquet. Full-bodied, concentrated and layered, it's perfectly balanced and never puts a foot wrong. It will benefit from short-term cellaring, but should be approachable at an earlier age than the 2010, and have 20 years of overall longevity. (JD)" (9/2015)

2007 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "With no Reserve bottling in the vintage, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape incorporates all of the top plots of the estate. An incredible wine that’s always performed brilliantly any time I’ve opened a bottle, it gives up layered, ripe aromas and flavors of black raspberry, crushed violets, black licorice and graphite (the wine see only very old foudre and no new oak? ever) to go with a voluptuous, concentrated and structured personality. While there’s no shortage of tannin here, they’re sweet, polished and integrated. Give it another year or two and drink it ...Read More »

2012 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

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. Heady aromas of black and blue fruits, potpourri and Indian spices, with a smoky element emerging with air. Taut and sharply focused on ...Read More »

2012 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

97 points Wine Spectator: "A stunner, with a gorgeous cassis aroma that soars from the glass, reinforced by a core of cassis, cherry and plum pâte de fruit, hoisin sauce, warm ganache and well-roasted apple wood notes. Hefty, but suave and seamless. The finish lets graphite and licorice elements glide through. The structure is dense, polished and perfectly integrated, resulting in lovely length. Should be a beauty after cellaring. Best from 2017 through 2032." (9/2014) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Moving to the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape, this is a vintage that’s loved by Paul-Vincent, and one that he compares to ...Read More »

1998 Domaine Marcoux "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I have had some issues with corked bottles, but the only bottle opened for this tasting was spectacular. Still rather deep bluish/purple in color, with an extraordinary nose of spring flowers, melted licorice, truffles, blueberries, and blackberry liqueur, it is jammy, thick, and unctuously textured, but exhibiting tremendous freshness and vibrancy for a wine this massive and powerful. This is an extraordinary wine without any hard edges. It seems to be close to full maturity, yet capable of staying there for up to two more decades when well-stored. This ...Read More »

2001 Domaine de la Solitude "La Réserve Secrète" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Absolutely prodigious, and unquestionably one of the vintage’s most illustrious wines, is the modern-styled 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape La Reserve Secrete. A blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah, aged 75% in small oak casks and 25% in tank, an awesome nose of creme de cassis, graphite, kirsch, licorice, and vanilla soars from the glass of this saturated ruby/purple-colored wine. With extravagant richness, a sumptuous texture, and tremendous opulence as well as purity, this stunning, modern-styled Chateauneuf du Pape retains the soul and typicity of Provence ...Read More »
