2016 Delas Freres "Saint-Esprit" Côtes du Rhône Rouge

95 points Decanter: "60% Syrah, 40% Grenache. Lovely rich opulent and floral, black berry and plum nose, the palate is big with well layered fruit, attractively firm but soft tannin and hints of oak, a big wine with a lovely finish. *Gold Medal Winner Decanter Asia Wine Awards*" (7/2017) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Grenache, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone Saint-Esprit is a screaming value. If offers bold black cherry and blueberry fruit aromas, lively fruit flavors, silky tannins and a crisp, lengthy mocha-tinged finish.

2015 Château de Montfaucon Côtes du Rhône

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The assemblage of the 2015 Cotes du Rhone includes only 50% Grenache, with the balance made up of 20% Syrah, 15% Carignan, 10% Cinsault and 5% Counoise. Perhaps as a result, it displays ample complexity on the nose and palate, with scents and flavors reminiscent of thyme, lavender and bay leaf alongside cherry and red berry fruit. It's medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, dry finish that elevates it well above ordinary. No, it's not a massive blockbuster, but it's a fine, elegant, unoaked table wine at a bargain price. (JC)" (10/2017) K&L Notes: Just across ... Read More »

2016 Saint Cosme Côtes du Rhône Top Pick!
2016 Saint Cosme Côtes du Rhône

It's unusual to see Syrah-led blends coming out of the southern Rhone but this has become one of the signature wines of prestigious Gigondas producer Château de Saint Cosme. The fruit comes from the Vinsobres appellation in the northern part of the southern Rhone and the terraces of the Villefranchian subregion on the Gard side of the Rhone River. Imbued with the full flavor and richness that Syrah provides and from this exceptional 2016 vintage, you can't go wrong with this pleasing and intense French red.

2016 Moulin de la Gardette "Cuvée Ventabren" Gigondas

98 points Decanter: "From 65 to 115 year old vines with no destemming, aged in old foudres. A discreet but intriguing nose of flowers, fruits and herbs. It's fresh and almost cleansing on the nose. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is concentrated but not overly so, with incredible brightness and vivacity leading into a mineral, saline finish that refreshes and lifts the spirits. Perfectly balanced, poised and seriously elegant, this is an absolute joy. It has an unforced and natural demeanour that is the sign of great terroir and a natural, sensitive touch in the cellar.

2016 Domaine de Verquière Côtes-du-Rhône

Wine Spectator: "Direct, with rounded plum and cherry fruit flavors, backed by a light red licorice note on the open finish.

Following age-old traditions and sustainable practices, the estate was recently certified organic. The Cotes du Rhone is a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah, grown on chalky clay soils with loads of large pebbles in the vineyards. Verquiere recently returned to us after a long hiatus and we a...

2015 Domaine Calendal "Plan de Dieu" Côtes du Rhône-Villages

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Always a value and well-known Rhône oenologist Philippe Cambie’s own label, the 2015 Côtes du Rhône Villages Plan de Dieu Calendal is a blockbuster blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Mourvèdre that offers full-bodied, rich, even decadent notes of cassis, crushed flowers, licorice and hints of vanilla bean. It has a killer mid-palate, sweet tannin and a big finish, all of which make it just about impossible to resist. Still, it should keep nicely for at least 5-7 years. (JD)" (10/2016)

2016 Clos Saint-Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes is cut from the same cloth, yet ratchets the intensity level up another notch. Possessing lots of dark fruits (and some blue fruits), beautiful minerality, notes of garrigue, roasted meats and melted licorice and full-bodied richness, this big, unctuous beauty may just surpass the 2010 (which has drunk incredibly well since release). I’ve written so many glowing reviews on the wines of Clos Saint Jean I sometimes feel like a broken record. Nevertheless, this estate continues to go from strength to strength an ...Read More »

It should drink nicely right out of the gate. Located between Valréas and Vinsobres, in the southern Rhone, Mas de Sainte Croix covers 27 hectares of vines and makes a number of cuvees.

Black olives, smoked earth, pepper and plenty of dark fruit all emerge from this inky-colored, straight-up impressive Côtes du Rhône.

94-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The flagship is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Château Sixtine, and it's a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre brought up in barrel. Black and blue fruits, graphite, licorice and pot roast like nuances all emerge from this huge, unctuous, concentrated beauty that tick s all the pleasure boxes. Despite its richness level, it stays balanced and pure. Reminding me slightly of an improved 2003, don't miss it." (10/2017) Jancis Robinson: "50% Grenache, 25% Mourvèdre, 25% Syrah. Cask sample. Sumptuous, succulent red fruit on the nose. Lovely savoury note on the palate lending gr ...Read More »

2015 Xavier Vignon Cairanne

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A new addition to the portfolio and from very old vines, the 2015 Cairanne looks to be outstanding, with terrific notes of lavender, garrigue and flowers grounded by a core of darker berry fruit. Rich, seamless and downright polished, it’s a no-brainer purchase that will offer tons of pleasure through 2025. The blend is 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, aged all in concrete tanks.

2016 Domaine de la Janasse "Chaupin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

97-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Made with close to 50% stems (the highest in a while) and brought up in foudre and demi-muids (20% new), the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Chaupin sports deep ruby/purple color as well as sensational notes of kirsch liqueur, black raspberries, crushed flowers, crushed rocks, and incense. Just a huge, rich, unctuous wine, it offers everything you could want from Grenache and is certainly going to challenge the 2007 and 2010 as the greatest expression of this terroir to date." (10/2017) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted from a single foudre representing the La Crau Est lieu-dit, the ...Read More »

Xavier Vignon "SM" Côtes du Rhône

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Côtes du Rhône S.M. is thrilling stuff. Made from equal parts Grenache and Syrah and aged half in concrete and half in barrel, it offers a full-bodied, voluptuous and decadent style to go with overflowing notes of plum and darker fruits, licorice and violets. Gorgeous on all counts, it’s a shockingly good Côtes du Rhône to drink over the coming 4-6 years, although I wouldn’t be surprised to see it last even longer. (JD)" (10/2014)

90 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of 80/20 Grenache and Mourvèdre, from 50-65-year-old vines, the 2015 Cotes-du-Rhone Vieilles Vignes Plan de Dieu is another juicy, forward, delicious wine from one of my favorite estate’s in Gigondas. Black cherries, lavender, garrigue, and hints of earth all emerge from this beautifully pure, elegant, impeccably balanced Plan de Dieu. It will keep for 7-8 years." (11/2017) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Cotes du Rhone Villages Plan de Dieu Vieilles Vignes is essentially the same blend as the Gigondas (80% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre) and is vinified almost identically, alt ...Read More »

2014 Mas de Sainte Croix "Quintessence" Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Valreas (Previously $20)

Jacques Coipel worked in the petrol industry until 2002 when he decided to change career paths and enter the wine business. He purchased an exceptional site in the Cotes du Rhone Village Cru of Valreas. His vineyards sit at around 1200 feet with a mix of clay, limestone and gravel making up the soils. With cooling winds from the north and at this higher altitude, there is a crispness to the wines showing more red fruit qualities in the reds and more vibrant apple tones in the whites. Around the same time Jacques's son, Julien, began studying winema... Read More »

2015 Famille Perrin "Domaine du Clos des Tourelles" Gigondas Top Pick!
2015 Famille Perrin "Domaine du Clos des Tourelles" Gigondas

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The finest vintage to date, the 2015 Gigondas Le Clos des Tourelles comes from a tiny vineyard located just inside the village of Gigondas. Incorporating a touch of Syrah, this Grenache dominated beauty reveals a deep ruby/purple color as well as off the chart notes of black raspberries, black cherries, pepper, garrigue, and tons of that classic Gigondas spice. I wrote “Wow” more than once in my notes and this full-bodied 2015 has ultra-fine tannin, perfect balance, and a stacked mid-palate. Give bottles 2-3 years and drink over the following 15+ years. ...Read More »

2016 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the grand vin, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is backward and dense, with a huge mid-palate, notes of framboise, black cherries, roasted herbs, nori, and spice, a thick, opulent texture, and yet no sense of weight or heaviness. With ripe, polished tannin and a blockbuster finish, it might just be the greatest wine from this estate to date." (10/2017) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In contrast to the Piedlong, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is a darker, richer wine. Yes, there are ripe cherries but also cola, blueberries and spice. Full-bodied and rich, it should easily outdistance ...Read More »

2015 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points James Suckling: "A wine with playful, attractive character. An array of red, blue and purple fruits. Gently spicy, chalky and fragrant, it has a very supple, fleshy and layered palate with a web of fine, smooth and supple tannins. Extremely elegant and composed. A long draw on the finish. Great depth and drive. This will live super long." (8/2017) 95 points Wine Spectator: "This has a lovely, perfumy mix of savory, mint, tobacco, blood orange, cherry and bergamot notes all mixed together, carried by silky but ample structure before ending with a long, mineral- and shiso leaf—infused finish. Finely b ...Read More »

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre, from 40- to 70-year-old vines, the 2013 Rasteau La Fontaine is a gorgeous effort that has classic Rasteau richness and depth, yet also shows a seamless, elegant and classy style. Black raspberry, currants, ground herbs and pepper all emerge from this full-bodied, nicely concentrated effort, and while it has a soft, supple feel, it should evolve nicely for 4-5 years. Located in Rasteau, this small, family run estate was create by Georges Perrot, who bottled his first wine in 2002 while renting cellar space from A ...Read More »
