93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I was able to taste all of the components of the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape and this is a vintage described by Marc Perrin where every variety excelled. The Grenache and Mourvèdre were the clear standouts, both possessing terrific concentration, purity of fruit and ripe tannic structure. This will certainly be an outstanding wine, and it has a touch more concentration than the 2012. This reference point estate continues to achieve incredible quality in just about every vintage. They’ve certainly made the wine of the vintage in 2014 with their Hommage a ...Read More »

Inventory: San Francisco
90-92 points Vinous: "Vivid ruby. Fresh red berries, Asian spices and potpourri on the highly perfumed nose. Juicy and sharply focused on the palate, offering energetic raspberry and floral pastille flavors that put on weight and open up steadily with air. Closes spicy and long; harmonious tannins add shape and grip. (JR)" (2/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014s from this estate are solid. Offering lots of cedary spice, dried red fruits and garrigue, the 2014 Gigondas Tradition is medium-bodied, rustic and charming. Drink it over the coming 7-8 years. (JD)" (12/2016) K&L Notes: Jean-Baptiste Meunier is the fift... Read More »
91 points Vinous: "Deep ruby. Spice- and smoke-accented cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by suggestions of candied violet and cracked pepper. Spicy, energetic and sharply focused on the palate, offering concentrated bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors that open up slowly with air. Distinctly northern Rhône in personality and texture, featuring a peppery, floral-dominated finish, smooth tannins and excellent closing thrust and persistence. The quality of this bottling consistently outpaces its price and appellation, and that's especially true in this vint ...Read More »
93 points Vinous: "Vivid ruby-red. Exotically perfumed scents of raspberry liqueur, potpourri and Asian spices, with a zesty mineral nuance adding lift. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering sweet red fruit flavors that expand and deepen with air. Floral pastille and spicecake notes add complexity to the very long finish, which features gently gripping tannins. (JR)" (4/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Offering more kirsch and dark fruit (over the straight Châteauneuf), with plenty of ground pepper and minerality, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Les Safres is medium to full-bodied, layered and satiny ...Read More »
94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is reminiscent of a slightly improved 2005 and has a fresh, classic style with beautiful concentration, notable freshness, first-rate tannin quality, and the classic spice and sweet red and black fruits this cuvee is known for. I suspect this beauty will close down relatively quickly after bottling and take 5-6 years to show at its best, but it will drink well for 15+ years. (JD)" (10/2016)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Côtes du Rhône Sélection Laurence Féraud offers lots of peppery, leather and garrigue characteristics in a medium to full-bodied, classy, charming style. Drink it over the coming 2-4 years (JD)" (10/2016) K&L Notes: Laurence Feraud and her father Paul run the benchmark Chateauneuf du Pape estate Domaine Pegau. Laurence also runs a successful negociant business purchasing grapes farmed to her specifications and they often represent some of the best values in the region. The 2015 Selection Cotes du Rhone may be the best yet from one of the most highly antici... Read More »
Costières de Nîmes is at the southernmost part of the Rhône Valley sitting on the opposite bank of Chateauneuf du Pape. One of our best new finds is Chateau de l'Ermitage which produces three terrific values with imminent drinkability. The estate's history traces back to the 12th century when the winery produced wine for the pilgirms of Saint Jacques de Compostelle who were traveling the Santiago de Compostela. The property is now owned by Castillon family and today Michel and his son Jerome manage the vineyards and winemaking. The "Victor" is named for ... Read More »
An award winner at many French wine competitions, the Dame Victoria is an impressive Rhône red raised not far from the fabled vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Warmly fruited and full of robust, rustic character, the nose offers minerality and blue fruit notes, which are echoed on the palate and joined with berries, berries, and more berries. Elegant on the supple finish, this is just the red to pair with chicken, burgers, roasts and cheesy vegetarian dishes.
95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The inky, black and blue-colored 2015 St-Joseph Sensonne is a tiny-production release (200 cases) that comes from very old vines around the villages of Mauves, Tournon and Saint Jean de Muzols. Aged in 100% new barrels, it offers sensational notes of cassis, black raspberry, toasted bread, spice and dried flowers, as well as full-bodied richness and fabulous mid-palate depth; it has building, fine tannin and a great finish. There is an inherent elegance and purity here, but it's going to take a decade to hit maturity. One of my favorite estates in the ...Read More »

90 points Wine Spectator: "This sports a brambly feel, with lots of dark licorice and warm fruitcake notes mixing with lightly steeped plum and blackberry fruit. Maintains good energy through the modestly toasted finish. Drink now through 2017. 4,200 cases made. (JM)" (11/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The top red of the estate is the 2013 Baron Louis Lirac and it’s a blend of 55% Grenache, 15% each of Syrah and Cinsault, and the rest Carignan and Mourvèdre. More concentrated and structured than the straight Lirac, yet also more austere and firm, it has savory notes of wood smoke, black currants, sandalwood ...Read More »
90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The straight up fabulous 2015 Tavel Les Lauzeraies is a layered, medium-bodied, beautifully textured Tavel that offers lots of flowers, lavender, spice and both cherry and raspberry fruit. Showing a touch of saltiness on the finish, drink this beauty with food over the coming year or so. (JD)" (5/2016) Wine Spectator: "A ripe rosé, with cherry and anise notes that stay focused and fresh, showing a flash of warm stone accents through the finish. Offers a juicy feel overall. Drink now. (JM)" (8/2016) K&L Notes: Rejoice Tavel! In a time when very high quality rosés line our shelves, when ... Read More »
94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An incredible wine, the 600-case 2015 Saint Joseph L'Olivaie comes from 60-year-old vines and is aged in 25% new French oak. Crushed rocks, blackberries, blueberries, lavender, wet rock and hints of truffle all emerge from this full-bodied, incredibly pure, elegant wine that will drink well in a handful of years and keep for over a decade. One of my favorite estates in the Northern Rhône is that of the young Jerome Coursodon, who makes a bevy of brilliant St Josephs from his roughly 16 hectares of vines. He’s another progressive winemaker who has one ...Read More »

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014s from this estate are solid. A step up over the traditional cuvee, the 2014 Gigondas Ventabren (70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Cinsault aged all in old foudre) is loaded with Provencal notes of garrigue, cedary spice, saddle leather and sweet red fruits. It’s mid-weight and charming, with notable elegance and purity. I suspect it will drink well for a decade, yet I see no need to hold off either. (JD)" (12/2016) 88-90 points Vinous: "Full ruby. Dark berries, pungent flowers and a suggestion of cured meat on the deeply perfumed nose. Round and expansive on the palate, ...Read More »
Alain Corcia founded his negociant company back in 1983. Originally focused on bottling urgundy, they expanded their grower relationships to include wines from the Rhone, Bordeaux and even Champagne. Our relationship with the 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 negociant, 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 t...

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The largest production release is the 2015 Saint Joseph Silice, which is a mix of estate parcels aged in a combination of demi-muids and barrels. It offers full-bodied aromas and flavors of wild strawberries, black raspberries, cassis and crushed violets, a rocking texture and sweet, polished tannin. It’s probably the finest vintage of this cuvée to date. One of my favorite estates in the Northern Rhône is that of the young Jerome Coursodon, who makes a bevy of brilliant St Josephs from his roughly 16 hectares of vines. He’s another progressive winema ...Read More »

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Looking at the reds and the only 2011 I was able to taste (I’m not sure if they produced their other two cuvees or not), the 2011 Vacqueyras G (50/50 blend of Grenache and Syrah aged in 1-3-year-old barrels) is a fruit loaded, medium to full-bodied effort that has fresh, lively aromatics (plum, violets, underbrush and spice), juicy acidity and quality tannin. It’s a rock star in the vintage and should drink nicely through 2021. Covering 45 acres in Vacqueyras, Domaine le Colombier produces four cuvees; a classic white; a traditional, concrete tank-aged ...Read More »

Named for the family's second-generation winemaker, Cécile Chassagne took over the family vineyard in Gigondas which was planted by her father in 1974. This blend of Grenache, Mourvedre, and Syrah is made in a traditional method without destemming. A long fermentation in open-topped wood tanks followed by aging the wine for four months in new Allier oak. The resulting wine is medium-bodied in a meaty and elegant expression of Gigondas terroir.
Wine Spectator: "Fresh and direct, with plum and blood orange flavors racing throughout, this is lined with a twinge of sandalwood that leads to a lavender-flecked finish. Drink now. (JM)" (10/2016)
Chante Cigale means singing cicada (a type of grasshopper/cricket). The property has been in the family since the 19th century and is currently run by Alexandre Favier who assumed the reins at the ripe old age of 20! The domaine is planted to 40 ha of red and 5 ha of white on 45 different parcels throughout the appellation. L'Apostrophe is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah grown in Travaillan, about 15 km from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This is a fresh and fruity everyday sipper to drink early and often.
Vinous: "Brilliant ruby-red. Musky cherry pit and garrigue scents are sharpened by a suggestion of cracked pepper. Taut and focused on entry and then fleshier in the middle, offering bitter cherry and raspberry flavors and a touch of succulent herbs. Closes clean and taut, with good length and very soft tannins that make a late appearance. (JR)" (6/2016) Wine Spectator: "Fresh, dusty-edged cherry and plum notes stream through, with flecks of dark tea and sandalwood on the finish. (JM, Web-2016)"
Praise for the current release from Wine Advocate: "These impeccable beauties are made by Stephane Vedeau, who’s the driving force behind the quality coming from his Ferme du Mont estate in Châteauneuf du Pape." (JD, 10/2016)
92-94 points Vinous: "Inky ruby. Expressive aromas of cherry, black raspberry, licorice and smoky minerals, with a dark chocolate element building slowly. Then tightly wound and focused on the palate, offering intense flavors of dark berries, bitter cherry and candied flowers. Powerful but at the same time quite elegant, finishing with wonderful clarity and length and smooth tannins. (JR)" (4/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape is a beauty and has a rare level of concentration and depth in the vintage. Blueberry, crushed flowers, pepper, and violet aromas and flavors flow nicely ...Read More »
95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Croix de Bois possesses a more fruit forward and exuberant character compared to the Barbe Rac and dishes out tons of blackberry, blueberry, raspberry, violets and spice characteristics. Beautifully pure and fresh on the palate, with full-bodied richness, building, sweet tannin and blockbuster length, I wouldn’t be surprised to see this be the best vintage for this cuvée to date. While I’ve always preferred the Barbe Rac cuvée in the past, the quality of the Croix de Bois cuvée continues to soar, and today I find these two wi ...Read More »

Domaine de Fontbonau is a partnership between the president of Chateau Latour, Frédéric Engerer, and Jérôme Sarda Malet. This blend of Grenache and Syrah is sourced from vines aged 30-70 years. Though the 2012 vintage has yet to be reviewed, Wine Spectator praised the 2011 bottling: "The core of juicy raspberry and blackberry fruit has melded with briary tannins and a backdrop of pepper, tobacco and anise in this late-release. Solid." (Web Only—2015)
90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Competing with many a Chateauneuf du Pape, the 2014 Côtes du Rhône Villages Valréas (50/50 Grenache and Syrah, aged in concrete) has lots of ripe black and blue fruits, pepper, asphalt and melted licorice aromatics. Medium to full-bodied, layered, even decadent, it looks to be a sensational 2014 that will drink nicely on release. (JD)" (3/2016)
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape is a beautiful wine in the vintage, and Marc compares it to the 2012. I’m not sure I agree, but there’s no denying the quality in this 2014. Sporting a deep ruby color and terrific notes of blackberries, ground herbs, pepper and Provençal s pice, it shows the more forward, charming nature of the vintage and is medium to full-bodied, pure and balanced. Drink it anytime over the coming decade. (JD)" (10/2016) 91-93 points Vinous: "Deep ruby. Potent smoke- and peppery spice-tinged cherry and black raspberry aromas are complemented by suggestions of lic ...Read More »
The Leperchois family, who has been making wine in the Rhône Valley since 1920, turned to organic farming in 1997 when they realized that pollution was impoverishing their soil. Their Lunar Apogé line takes this ethos one step further--it is Demeter-certified organic and biodynamic. They use only natural yeasts and hand harvesting, working intricately with the rhythms of the seasons. A blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre from 35-year-old vines.

93 points Wine & Spirits: "This feels regal and old-fashioned in the best way, a gruff, gravelly Gigondas made charming by its subdued fruit and sweet earthiness. Two years in oak foudres—half of them new—has added a brown-sugar richness to the fruit; any charry notes have been incorporated fully, turning the flavors toward roast meat. Firm and savory, this is a pleasure to drink now, and it’s sure to age well over the next decade." (2/2016) 91 points Vinous: "Opaque ruby. Pungent, floral red and dark berry scents, along with a smoky mineral quality and a hint of olive; seems like there's more Syrah i ...Read More »

Medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and with ripe tannin, it’s a beautiful Vacqueyras that should drink nicely on release and evolve gracefully. 89-91+ (JD)" (3/2016) Vinous: "Brilliant ruby.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The basic 2010 Cotes du Rhone is excellent. It exhibits very good ripeness and lots of minerality along with floral, red and dark fruit notes. (RP)" (10/2012) Wine Spectator: "An open, friendly style, with a light briary note propelling blackberry, anise and plum sauce flavors. (JM)" (10/2013) K&L Notes: Montfaucon crafts their Côtes du Rhône to express the intense fruit characteristics of the appellation.

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The finest vintage of this cuvee I’ve tasted, the inky 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape a la Gloire de Mon Grandpere comes from old-vine Grenache vines planted in mostly sandy soils of the Gardiole lieu-dit. Aged in a combination of concrete tank and older, larger barrels, it’s a drop-dead gorgeous 2012 that reveals tons of sweet red and black fruits, lavender, pepper, licorice and hints of garrigue. Beautifully concentrated, seamless and textured, with extraordinary elegance and polish to its tannin, it’s up with the top 2-3 wines of the vintage and will have t ...Read More »
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 »
94 points Vinous: "Vivid ruby. Exotic, expansive aromas of fresh red and dark berries, incense, anise and garrigue. Deep, sappy black raspberry and boysenberry flavors show excellent clarity, with a hint of spicecake building in the glass. Nicely balances power and finesse and shows outstanding vivacity. A smoky mineral note adds lift and cut to the long, fruit-driven finish, which shows just a hint of silky tannins.

You almost need a fork to drink this beauty, yet it’s never heavy or over the top, has incredible purity and present, ripe tannin. I followed this bottle for two days and it only got better with air.

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 »
93-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As to the reds, all of these show beautiful purity of fruit and impeccably made profiles. As a whole, 2015 was consistent throughout the Southern Rhône, and you see that consistency in this lineup. From 100-year-old Grenache vines planted in sandy parts of the La Crau lieu-dit, the blockbuster 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Spéciale knocks it out of the park with its decadent notes of kirsch, blackberries, Provençal garrigue and graphite aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, deep, rich and concentrated, it has an inherent, Grenache-driven sexiness that I ador ...Read More »

There are plenty of various berry fruits and spices in this wine...

92 points Vinous: "Bright ruby. Assertively perfumed aromas of fresh black and blue fruits, spicecake and garrigue, and suggestions of cola and woodsmoke.

Supple tannins build on the tenacious finish, which shows outstanding clarity and resonating spiciness.

It is fresh, voluptuous, and opulent in the mouth, but the fresh acids and vibrancy give it exceptional precision as well as a refreshing style despite its weight, richness, and length. This is a superb, young Chateauneuf du Pape from an up-and-coming star of the appellation. Give it 1-3 years of bottle age and drink it over the followin ...Read More »

90 points Wine Spectator: "Well-built, with a juicy core of raspberry and plum coulis flavors, stitched with fresh acidity and carrying through a finish edged with violet, lavender and light chalk details. Should knit nicely with modest cellaring. A new project from Nicolas Haeni, formerly of Domaine de Cabasse. Grenache and Syrah. Best from 2017 through 2020. (JM)" (10/2016) K&L Notes: Malmont is a single-vineyard labor of love.

The Leperchois family, who has been making wine in the Rhône Valley since 1920, turned to organic farming in 1997 when they realized that pollution was impoverishing their soil. They are committed to making delicious wine in the most natural, sustainable fashion, using low sulfur, natural yeasts, and immaculately clean facilities. Their work pays off in complex, sophisticated wines that let the Rhône terroir shine through.
95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As I stated last year, there is no Hommage a Jacques Perrin in 2006, but Beaucastel’s 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape is performing even better from bottle than it did last year. Its dense plum/ruby/purple color is followed by a big, sweet perfume of black truffles, camphor, earth, incense, new saddle leather, and loads of peppery, blackberry, and herb-infused, meaty, black cherry fruit. Deep, full-bodied, and dense, with sweet tannin, this explosively rich Chateauneuf is a stronger effort than the 2005, 2004, or 2003.
