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

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape is a classic blend of 75% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault, mostly from rolled stone terroirs, that was partially destemmed and will see 15 months all in foudre. It boasts a deep ruby/purple color as well as full-bodied richness, sweet tannin and textbook Southern Rhône notes of cured meats, toasted spice, garrigue and ample red and black fruits. It will have two decades or more of prime drinking. Along with a small handful of other estates, I consider Claire Michel’s le Vieux Donjon at the top of the hea ...Read More »

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The entry level 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Les Olivets comes from the young vines of the estate. Made from 80% Grenache and 10% each of Syrah and Cinsault, aged in foudre, concrete tanks and tronconique tanks, its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a medium to full-bodied, textured red that has lots of red black fruits, roasted garrigue and hints of meatiness, sweet tannin and outstanding length.

98 points Wine Spectator: "This has a drop-dead gorgeous core of cassis and raspberry pâte de fruit flavors that holds center stage but still allows notes of Lapsang souchong tea, anise, incense and shiso leaf to chime in. Very long, with a sublime feel through the mineral-tinged finish. So seductive already, but this will cruise in the cellar. Drink now through 2040."

95-97 points Rhone Report: "A vintage compared to 2010 by Laurence, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape looks to be one of the big successes in the vintage. Possessing ripe, rounded, sexy style backed up by solid density and concentration, it offers classic Pegau notes of currants, pepper, and cured meats. Big, rich, concentrated and beautifully textured, it offers a rare depth of fruit and richness in the vintage. 95-97+ points.

It’s aged 60% in foudre and the rest in larger oak tanks.

Shows loads of heft but remains driven by fresh, deeply inlaid acidity that pulls everything together on the finish. A flashy style and impossible to resist. Best from 2020 through 2040.

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 reds from these two brothers are some of the gems in the vintage. Similar to the classic cuvée, except with another level of concentration and elegance, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes sports a deep ruby/purple color to go with classic, Provençal notes of black cherries, cured meats, toasted spice and garrigue.

It’s easily the largest, richest and most full-bodied of the lineup and has lots of blackberry, plum, peppery herbs and roasted herb characteristics.

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.

2016 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc

2015 Chateau de Vaudieu "Amiral G" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Amiral G. comes from a single parcel and is a huge wine that I suspect will be in the top one to two wines of the vintage. Giving up awesome notes of Provençal garrigue, strawberry jam, kirsch, incense and peppered meats, it has full-bodied richness, a broad, expansive feel on the palate and sweet tannin. I don’t think it has the density and structure of the 2010 (which is a monumental wine!), but this is a tour de force in Grenache that Châteauneuf du Pape lovers shouldn’t miss!

2015 Chateau de Vaudieu "Val de Dieu" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Made from 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, aged mostly in demi-muids, it has a kiss of toasty oak as well as notes of crème de cassis, toasted spiced, candied cherries and potpourri. This full-bodied, pure, elegant effort packs a ton of fruit, but like all of the wines here, is never over the top, stays balanced and graceful.

2010 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape (375ml)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "On another level, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape is rock-star stuff, and is probably my favorite vintage from this estate to date. Deeply colored, it boasts masculine, meaty aromas and flavors of smoked herbs, pepper, licorice, lavender, crushed rock and blackberries to go with a full-bodied, concentrated and rich style on the palate. There’s ample tannin here, yet they’re sweet and beautifully integrated.

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.

2005 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Laurence" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Laurence is terrific, and is certainly the finest release since the ’98 and ’01. The same blend as the classic cuvee (85% Grenache, 10% Syrah and the rest Mourvèdre and other varieties), it spent a full 48 months in old foudre prior to bottling. Gorgeously complex, with soaring garrigue, saddle leather, beef blood, iron and distinct minerality, this beauty is full-bodied, rich and layered on the palate, with a massive amount of fruit and tannin.

Finely beaded acidity lets the fruit stretch out, while a light mineral edge adds range. Shows an echo of licorice snap at the very end. Dense, but there’s remarkable grace here. (JM)" (7/2017) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Vieilles Vignes checks in as 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and the rest Mourvèdre and Cinsault, with 30% whole cluster.

2015 Clos Saint Jean "Deus Ex Machina" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deeper, more masculine, graphite-laced and structured, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Deux Ex Machina (60/40 Grenache and Mourvèdre) always shows a huge, meaty, roasted herb, kirsch and darker fruit profile. Like the other 2015s here, it shines for its purity, but this is a big, mouth-filling and unctuous beauty that’s both a hedonistic and intellectual turn on.

2009 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Wine Spectator: "Sinewy and reserved, with a light dusting of cocoa powder over the tangy damson plum, red licorice and cassis notes. The long, supple finish, with a lovely wafting note of Lapsang souchong tea, is packed with minerality and tight-grained tannins that will need time to fully evolve. One of the more backward 2009s, though this should pick up steam in the cellar. Best from 2013 through 2025. (JM)" (11/2011) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Considered by Paul-Vincent to be a hypothetical blend of the '05 and the '07, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape was showing its Mourvedre component on this occ ...Read More »

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.

2009 Lucien & Andre Brunel "Les Cailloux" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

The blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 12% Syrah and 3% Cinsault starts off with lovely notes of wild thyme and dark fruit, then adds herbal complexity and chocolaty richness.

It is a full-bodied, slightly more reserved and less exuberant effort than the 2007 was at a similar age. It will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age, and last for 10-15 years."

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape is a classic blend of 75% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault, mostly from rolled stone terroirs, that was partially destemmed and will see 15 months all in foudre. It boasts a deep ruby/purple color as well as full-bodied richness, sweet tannin and textbook Southern Rhône notes of cured meats, toasted spice, garrigue and ample red and black fruits. It will have two decades or more of prime drinking. Along with a small handful of other estates, I consider Claire Michel’s le Vieux Donjon at the top of the hea ...Read More »

2015 Domaine La Bastide Saint Dominique Chateauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

91-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape was tasted out of barrel and offers a full-bodied, mouth-filling, even sexy, style to go with ample amounts of plums, blueberries, violets and floral aromas and flavors. Count me a fan and this is a big, fruit-loaded beauty that will drink nicely for a decade or more.(JD)" (12/2016) 90-92 points Vinous: "Deep ruby. Highly perfumed aromas of raspberry, boysenberry, licorice and smoky herbs are complicated by a sexy potpourri flourish. Juicy, expansive and concentrated, offering spice-accented red and blue fruit flavors and a touch of floral pastilles ...Read More »

2009 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (375ml)

96 points Rhone Report: "The 2009 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape had just been bottled at the time of the tasting but you wouldn’t know it by tasting it. A blend of 30% Mourvèdre, 30% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Counoise, and 20% assorted varieties, the wine delivers a superb aromatic display of kirsch and black cherry-like fruits to go with a solid dose of underlying meat, truffle, earth, and leather. Full-bodied and gorgeously concentrated through the middle, with fleshy, ripe fruit, good acidity, and an abundance of structure, this will ideally be left alone for 7-8 y ...Read More »

2015 Domaine Durieu Chateauneuf-du-Pape New!
2015 Domaine Durieu Chateauneuf-du-Pape

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The reds from barrel include the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape, which should end up being an outstanding wine. Offering textbook notes of black raspberries, roasted garrigue and tapenade, it’s medium to full-bodied, upfront and soft, with tons of fruit and charm. It should drink nicely right out of the gate. 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." (10/2016)

2015 Domaine de Cristia "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Domaine de Cristia "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Wine Spectator: "This delivers a lush, enticing blast of cassis and raspberry and boysenberry preserve flavors, carried by a silky structure that lets the fruit play out at length, giving adequate time for black tea, singed apple wood, dried anise and fruitcake notes to fill in throughout. Dreamy. Grenache. Best from 2020 through 2040." (9/2017) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As for the reds from barrel, I found a touch of volatile acidity in all of the barrel samples, as well as a touch less exuberance and concentration than in past vintage. My favorite of the barrel samples was the 2015 Châteauneuf du ...Read More »

2015 Domaine Grand Veneur "Les Origines" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Les Origines (50% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre and 20% Syrah aged in a mix of concrete tanks and small barrels) has fabulous notes of crème de cassis, blackberry jam, roasted herbs and graphite. Full-bodied, ultra-pure and with incredibly polished tannin, it’s up with some of the best vintage of this cuvée to date. It will need 2-3 years of cellaring and have two decades of longevity. This sensational estate consistently produces some of the top whites of the appellation (in addition to the reds), and they’ve done well in 2015. ...Read More »

2014 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Decanter: "Paul and Vincent Avril, a father and son team, have established themselves as one of the finest producers of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Despite being predominantly Grenache, it is reminiscent of an elegant northern Rhône Syrah with the texture of a Pinot. With a medium bodied intensity, it has a beautiful red fruit expression with some savoury notes. Harmony, finesse and elegance are probably the three words that best describe this beauty. One for the cellar." (11/2016) 93-95 points Vinous: "Deep ruby. Highly perfumed scents of candied dark berries, cola and lavender oil develop a su ...Read More »

2000 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape reveals 14.6% alcohol, and is stylistically similar to the great 1990. The 2000 is open-knit and fat, with higher levels of glycerin as well as a more corpulent style than the structured, backward 2001. A deep ruby/purple color is followed by sweet, black cherry/kirsch liqueur-like notes presented in a voluptuous, full-throttle, intense style. It is already revealing such secondary nuances as pepper, garrigue, and truffles. Chewy, full-bodied, and moderately tannic, this cuvee is accessible, but not ready to drink. (JD) ...Read More »

2012 Le Clos du Caillou "Les Quartz" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape les Quartz is one of the more powerful, structured 2012s and exhibits wonderful black raspberry, creamy licorice, smoked earth and crushed rock/liquid minerality. Medium to full-bodied and classically styled on the palate, with a broad, expansive feel, it has sweet fruit, plenty of tannin and beautiful length. (JD)" (10/2014) 94 points Vinous: "Vivid purple. Deeply pitched black and blue fruit scents are complicated by notes of licorice and cola. In quite a different style than the Safres, offering sweet boysenberry and black raspberry flavors an ...Read More »

2015 Domaine La Bastide Saint Dominique "Secrets de Pignan" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "My favorite barrel sample was the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Secrets de Pignan, which comes from a site just to the north of Rayas, with a similar, yet slightly coarser, soil. Voluptuous, layered and elegant, yet not pulling any punches on the fruit, this beauty is loaded with notions of blueberries, plums, strawberries and violets. It’s all fruit at the moment, but this is impressive and will certainly be one of the gems in the vintage. (JD)" (10/2016) 95 points Rhone Report: "While I wasn’t able to taste the traditional cuvée, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Secrets de Pignan certain ...Read More »

2015 Roger Sabon "Secret de Sabon" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

97 points Wine Spectator: "Gorgeous, with a velvety, caressing mouthfeel to the waves of linzer torte, warm cassis and raspberry pâte de fruit flavors, laced with black tea, mulled spice, singed alder and melted licorice notes. The long finish has latent grip and a beautiful iron accent but remains beguiling overall, letting the fruit and perfume play out beautifully. (JM)" (7/2017) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The smallest production cuvée is the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Le Secret des Sabon, which is a field blend of primarily Grenache that’s brought up all in oak tanks. It sports a deep ruby color, full body, ...Read More »

2015 Chateau de Vaudieu "l'Avenue" Chateauneuf-du-Pape

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "100% Grenache that’s aged all in demi-muids, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape L'Avenue is similar to the Amiral G., yet is slightly more tight, focused and concentrated. Coming from a tiny strip of vines located right next to Rayas, it offers sensational notes of strawberry jam, kirsch, mulled blackberries, graphite and exotic spices to go with full-bodied richness and depth, as well as fine, sweet tannin. Give bottles 2-3 years of cellaring, count yourself lucky, and drink them over the following 15 years or more.
