2012 Domaine la Garrigue "La Cantarelle" Vacqueyras Top Pick!
2012 Domaine la Garrigue "La Cantarelle" Vacqueyras

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The most impressive of the trio, the 2012 Vacqueyras La Cantarelle is an incredible blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah that spent 24 months all in concrete tanks. It too is a custom cuvee between Eric Solomon, Philippe Cambie and the Bernard family. Named after a house that’s located in the vineyard, it comes from 100+-year-old vines and primarily limestone soils, and there’s a scant 600 cases to go around. Inky purple in color, it gives up meaty aromas and flavors of olive tapenade, cassis, melted licorice and earth to go with a very full-bodied, volup ...Read More »

2013 Cave de Rasteau "Dame Victoria" Rasteau

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.

Getting more than one "Wow" in my notes, this is one barrel sample I can’t wait to taste from bottle. It should be ready to go on release and evolve gracefully for 7-8 years. (JD)" (12/2013)

(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. What distinguishes Vinsobres is its elevation, with vineyards sitting at 350 to 450 meters, and the latitude being the northernmost of the Côtes du Rhône crus.

2014 Château de Trinquevedel Tavel (375ml)

Tavel is an appellation of the southern Rhone valley, unique in its specialization in dry rosé wines. The vineyards that produce the appellation's wines are located around the town of Tavel, just southwest of Orange and northwest of Avignon. The soils here are mostly stony and sandy and boast excellent drainage qualities, which force the vines to dig deep, strong root systems in search of water and nutriment. There are areas of limestone which generate the lighter, more-delicate element of the otherwise robust rosés, and patches of red, iron-rich soils ... Read More »

A blend of Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah, Counoise and Vaccarese, from 90-year-old vines and aged in one-third new barrels (although you wouldn’t know it), it possesses fabulous notes of blackberry and currant fruit, big minerality, roasted meats and leather. Full-bodied, with beautiful freshness, big tannin and a layered, thrillingly concentrated mid-palate ... (JD)" (10/2013)

1998 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "A big, rich wine with huge amounts of fruit oozing out of the glass. Great concentration and intensity, with licorice flavors from the Mourvèdre, finishing with chewy tannins. A great year for this wine, which should age well for 15 to 20 years." (12/2001)95 points Wine Spectator: "Very youthful, with a juicy blast of red plum and fig fruit flavors on a racy frame, this also has plenty of spice, tar, plum cake and mineral in reserve, as the finish shows more structure and slowly darkens with time in the glass. Only just starting to hit its stride.--1998 Châteauneuf-du-Pape retrospe ...Read More »

2012 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Top Pick!
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 Antonio Galloni: "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 »

2010 Château des Tours Côtes du Rhône

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A beautiful effort, the 2010 Cotes du Rhone is loaded with sweet framboise, kirsch, white pepper, lavender and incense-like aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, seamless and elegant, it opens up beautifully in the glass, has fine tannin and good acidity. Great now with a short decant, it will have over a decade of longevity. (JD)" (1/2015) K&L Notes: Emmanuel Reynaud oversees three of the most prestigious properties in the Rhône Valley, Chateau des Tours, Château Fonsalette, and Château Rayas. Château des Tours was passed to him from his father, Bernard, in 19... 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 Château Rayas Réserve Châteauneuf-du-Pape Back In Stock!
1998 Château Rayas Réserve Châteauneuf-du-Pape

93 points Wine Spectator: "This continues to evolve, and always benefits from a lot of air time in the glass (or decanter), which allows its lilting, perfumy aromas and light color to become more concentrated and darker. Cherry, rose petal, pine forest, spice and mineral notes hang on the supple frame with deceptive grip on the finish.--1998 Châteauneuf-du-Pape retrospective." (9/2007)

1998 Domaine de la Janasse Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes

94 points Wine Spectator: "Dark and surprisingly brawny, with bacon fat, prune, cocoa and toast notes leading the way. Hints of cedar and beef chime in on the slightly chewy finish, which shows a roasted edge. Has impressive power, but the note of torrefaction is atypical for the vintage.--1998 Châteauneuf-du-Pape retrospective. Drink now through 2020. 1,000 cases made. –JM" (9/2007)

2005 Tardieu Laurent "Cuvée Speciale" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Wine Spectator: "Stunning, with a terrific range of fig sauce, blackberry confiture, blueberry and linzer torte flavors layered with spice, mesquite, fruit cake and sweet earth notes. The long finish is riveted by minerality. So lush and accessible that this may be burning the candle at both ends, but it does so beautifully. Drink now through 2023. 725 cases made." (4/2008) 92-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The deep ruby/purple colored 2005 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Speciale reveals notes of tree bark, blackberry, kirsch, licorice, pepper, and roasted meats. It is full-bodied, tannic, has zesty acidity, an ...Read More »

2012 Rene Rostaing "Ampodium" Côte-Rôtie

92 points Antonio Galloni: "Vivid purple. Fresh black and blue fruits and potpourri on the expressive, expansive nose. Highly floral and spicy, with intense dark berry and bitter cherry flavors becoming sweeter with aeration. This precise wine finishes with excellent thrust, sneaky tannins and lingering floral and Asian spice notes. Rostaing pointed out that this is a perfect example of a 2012 that shows wonderfully now but that's set to shut down in 'about six months,' after which it should be left alone for at least three to five years. (JR)" (2/2015)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Starting with Rene's classic C ...Read More »

2000 Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vielles Vignes

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is even better, with another layer of texture and depth. Chocolate-laced fruits, cured meats, spice, crushed rock and sweet spice all show from this perfumed, up-front, sweetly fruited Chateauneuf, and it still has a core of concentrated fruit and solid tannin structure. I see no reason to hold off, but it too will thrill over the coming 3-5 years. (JD)" (8/2014)93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark red-ruby. Distinct surmaturite on the nose: roasted red fruits, roasted herbs, chocolate, earth and minerals. Lush, sweet and layered, with classi ...Read More »
