2012 Michel Gassier "Cercius" Vieilles Vignes Côtes du Rhone Rouge (Elsewhere $15) Top Pick!
2012 Michel Gassier "Cercius" Vieilles Vignes Côtes du Rhone Rouge (Elsewhere $15)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A joint venture between Gassier, Philippe Cambie, and importer Eric Solomon, the 2012 Cercius Vieilles Vignes is a year in, year out ridiculous value that also drinks well past its humble price point. Comprised of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah that was aged for 6 months in concrete, it has loads of raspberry, licorice, mineral and Provencal herbs as well as a soft, supple and silky textured feel on the palate. Coming from old Grenache vines (70-90 years in age) located on the Plateau de Domazan - which lies on the right bank of the Rhone river, just west of ...Read More »

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."

2012 Domaine la Colliere "La Fontaine" Rasteau Top Pick!
2012 Domaine la Colliere "La Fontaine" Rasteau

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even more impressive, the estate's old vine cuvee, the 2012 Rasteau La Fontaine, is consistently one of the top 2-3 wines in the vintage. A blend of mostly tank-aged Grenache, with a splash of Mourvedre (aged in demi-muid), this gorgeous effort tastes like the essence of Rasteau. Black fruits, dried spices, garrigue and mineral-like aromas all flow from the glass and this full-bodied, concentrated and blockbuster-styled Rasteau will benefit from a year or two in the cellar, and evolve gracefully for upward of a decade.

Possessing solid mid-palate depth, fine tannin and rocking length, it should be a no-brainer purchase and drink nicely for 7-8 years.

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

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.

(9/2014) K&L Notes: Courtois is a property acquired by the Jaume family in 2003. The winery itself had fallen into disrepair but the vineyards were in remarkable condition.

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. Drink 2015-2030. One of the ben ...Read More »

2012 Raymond Usseglio Châteauneuf-du-Pape "Cuvée Impériale"

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "My favorite of the lineup, and one of the top Châteauneufs in the vintage, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Imperiale is 95% Grenache (5% other varieties) that comes from 100-year-old vines and the pure sand soils of the Piallon (near Rayas) and Girardette (near Charbonnière) lieux-dits. It offers awesome black and blue fruits, violets, licorice and crushed rock-like minerality in its full-bodied, balanced, pure and elegant profile. Impressively concentrated, inky colored and with sweet tannin, it’s capable of evolving for 12-15 years or more. (JD)" (10/2014) ...Read More »

2013 David Givaudan "La Bête" Côtes-du-Rhone

David, started Domaine Givaudan in 2001 when he purchased 20 hectares of vineyards around the village of Cavillargues specializing in Cotes du Rhone and "Vin de Pays" appellations. He has chosen to acquire vigorous vineyards with very specific terroirs (clay & limestone), and generous sun exposure producing grapes rich in aromas and texture. The Cotes du Rhone is named "La Bete" after a mythical Rhone beast "Givaudan" that terrorized the Rhone Valley. (Importer Notes)

2012 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

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 Jean-Luc Colombo "Les Abeilles" Côtes-du-Rhône

Jancis Robinson: "50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 20% Mourvèdre. Destemmed, fermented and aged in stainless steel. pH 3.33. Deep cherry red with a lovely classic Rhône aroma of warm, ripe but fresh fruit, some peppery spice and a gentle savoury element. The palate mirrors those aromas, warm, spicy and rounded with plenty of fruit, no excess sweetness and a spicy finish. Tannins are just slightly chewy but not so much that you couldn't drink this without food - though I would prefer to drink it at the table. Generous but still fresh on the finish. Persistent too with just a touch ...Read More »

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

94-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even better, the 2009 Châteauneuf du Pape Reserve des Célestins is similar to the Marie Beurrier, yet has additional concentration, mid-palate depth and sweet tannin. 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 »

2012 Famille Perrin "Domaine du Clos des Tourelles" Gigondas

94-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another prodigious Gigondas who’s only problem is that there’s not enough of it, the 2012 Gigondas Clos des Tourelles (95% Grenache and 5% Syrah) comes from a vineyard just outside of the village. Slightly darker in character than the Vieilles Vignes, it boasts awesome aromatics of cassis, toasted spice, licorice, ground herbs and massive minerality. This is followed by a medium to full-bodied, rich and concentrated Gigondas that has beautiful tannin structure, notable freshness and building richness that comes through on the finish. Rich and textured, a ...Read More »

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

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Trois Sources comes from the estate's vineyards planted in sandy soils. About 10,000 bottles have been produced. 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%). Give thi ...Read More » 



2013 Clos Saint Jean "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

91-93 points Vinous: "Opaque ruby. Smoke- and spice-accented red fruit and potpourri scents show very good clarity and suggestions of allspice and licorice. Silky, sweet and open-knit, offering intense black raspberry and lavender pastille flavors that put on weight as the wine opens up. Deeply flavored but lively too, finishing with excellent focus; dusty tannins lend shape and grip. (JR)" (4/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes a gorgeous drinker that gives up lots of black cherry, lavender, peppery spice and Provençal notes to go with a medium to full-bodied, e ...Read More »
