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 Domaine de Verquière Côtes-du-Rhône

2015 Mas de Sainte Croix "Passion d'Une Terre" Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Valreas Top Pick!
2015 Mas de Sainte Croix "Passion d'Une Terre" Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Valreas

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A tank aged blend of equal parts Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre, the 2015 Valreas Passion d’Une Terre looks to be outstanding, with lots of creamy fruits, licorice and spice, medium to full-bodied richness and a ripe, textured, polished profile. 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. These were both tasted as barrel samples, but they certainly have fabulous potential. (JD)" (4/2016) K&L Notes: Jacques Coipel worked in the ... Read More »

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)

It's richly concentrated yet velvety, with a long, peppery finish. It looks to be a beauty. Daniel Brunier said that all of the estate's 2016 reds are 15.5% alcohol or more, yet I didn't find excessive heat in any of them—a testament to the richness of the wines and the balance achieved in this vintage.

(JR)" (3/2017) 91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Leading off the 2015s from bottle, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape sports a vibrant ruby color as well as an elegant, classic, pure style that just begs to be drunk.

2015 Domaine Saint-Damien Côte du Rhône-Villages Plan de Dieu Vieilles Vignes Top Pick!
2015 Domaine Saint-Damien Côte du Rhône-Villages Plan de Dieu Vieilles Vignes

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 »

2016 Vincent Paris "La Geynale" Cornas (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Decanter: "From vines of over 100 years old grown on south facing granite soils. Some stemmy aromas bring fresh thyme, rosemary, star-anise and white pepper freshness to the aromatics, and a deep menthol coolness, an effect of not destemming. It is full-bodied, rich and concentrated in fruit with wonderful freshness. Very lively too, with citrus and berry acidity woven through the deep, juicy blackberry and damson fruit. A touch of crème de mûre on the palate, and some spicy notes on the finish. This is a relatively light Geynale in fruit, not as darkly-fruited as ...Read More »

2015 Baron de Montfaucon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Top Pick!
2015 Baron de Montfaucon Châteauneuf-du-Pape

91 points Wine Spectator: "Youthfully taut, with singed alder and cedar notes framing the core of red currant and cherry fruit paste flavors. Light savory and sanguine accents emerge steadily through the finish. A light echo of brick dust at the end keeps this in the old-school camp. Best from 2018 through 2025. (JM)" (11/2017) K&L Notes: One of our most popular direct imports, the price-to-quality ratio we've found in these wines year after year is simply unbeatable. Our customers have come to rely on this family-run winery to provide great quality, drinkability and value. The 2014 was the ... Read More »

2016 Domaine de Cristia "Renaissance" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Surprisingly, no classic cuvée was submitted, but both special cuvées showed brilliantly. I suspect this will be the best vintage to date for this family estate. For example, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Renaissance (60/40 Grenache and Mourvèdre) is easily the finest vintage of this cuvée I’ve tasted and it’s loaded with awesome notes of cassis and blackberry fruit intermixed with notions of crushed flowers, cured meats and hints of vanilla bean. With full-bodied richness, gorgeous purity, a stacked mid-palate and building tannin, it’s going to need 4-5 ...Read More »

2014 J.L. Chave Selection "Offerus" Saint-Joseph

91 points Vinous: "Deep ruby. Powerful aromas of blackberry, candied violet and woodsmoke, plus a hint of olive that emerges with aeration. Sweet, densely packed and seamless in texture, offering juicy black and blue fruit and licorice flavors given lift and spine by a core of juicy acidity. Spreads out and becomes spicier on the long, sweet finish, which features subtle tannins and a sexy floral nuance. (JR)" (7/2017) K&L Notes: The vineyards used for Offerus are located in two distinct St. Joseph areas. The communities of Mauves, Tournon, and St. Jean de Muzols yield over 80% of the ...

2016 Ferraton Père et Fils "La Source" Saint-Joseph (Pre-Arrival)

91-93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Leading off the Saint Joseph releases and from multiple vineyards throughout the appellation, the 2016 Saint Joseph La Source offers loads of burning embers, blackberries, licorice and roasted herb characteristics. With medium to full-bodied richness and ripe, present tannin, it's another balanced, classic wine from Ferraton to drink over the coming decade." (1/2018)

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. Try after 2020. (NS)" (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—inf ...Read More »

2015 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

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." (8/2017) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bottled in May, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is a floral, elegant, unbelievably complex wine. Roses and violets, cherries and stone fruit, cinnamon and allspice and more are carried across the full-bodied yet ...Read More »

2013 Domaine la Colliere "La Fontaine" Rasteau (Previously $30)

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 »

2013 E. Guigal Côtes du Rhône

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Côtes du Rhône, which is scheduled to be bottled in November, is a bigger, richer wine than I remember and has tons of ripe Syrah characteristics. Black olives, smoked earth, pepper and plenty of dark fruit all emerge from this inky-colored, straight-up impressive Côtes du Rhône. (JD)" (12/2016) Wine Spectator: "Plush and forward, with a core of creamed plum and warmed fig notes backed by a hint of baker's chocolate. Shows a little more heft than purity, but this will have fans. Drink now through 2017. 60,000 cases imported. (JM)" (11/2016)

2016 Domaine Grand Veneur Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes is sensational, with notes of blackberry jam, blueberries, crushed flowers, licorice, and graphite all soaring from the glass. Deep, rich, unctuous and still structured, with masses of tannin, it's a beast of a wine, yet stays impeccably balanced, pure and clean. It's going to need 4-5 years of cellaring. 96-99+" (10/2017) 95 points Decanter: "A remarkable combination of freshness, concentration and lightness of touch. Very long, with vivid aromatics and lovely balance. It's hard to fault really, but is painfully young at this stage ...Read More »

2015 Ferraton Père et Fils "La Source" Saint-Joseph

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another huge, sexy wine is the 2015 St Joseph La Source, which at this quality, sells for a song. Black raspberries, cassis, red currants, licorice and graphite all emerge from this full-bodied beauty that has sweet tannin and a stacked mid-palate. It will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and drink well for over a decade. Twenty-eight bucks? More please. The quality (and number of cuvées) from this estate continues to soar, and this is easily the finest lineup up of wines I’ve tasted from this team.
