2012 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape Top Pick!
2012 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Jancis Robinson: "Dark and ripe with some savoury character. A cool finish and both very round and mineral. Interesting wine!" Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The straight Châteauneuf du Pape (65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre and 5% Cinsault) comes mostly from rolled-pebble terroir, yet also has a fair chunk from sandy soils as well. A beautiful traditional cuvee, it gives up notions of sweet black cherries, leafy herbs, olive and underbrush to go with a medium-bodied, elegant and textured mouthfeel. Leaning more toward the pretty, finesse-driven end of the spectrum, it drinks beautifully today, but ...Read More »

2013 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc is a fine white that’s made from equal parts Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc and Clairette. Aged 30% in barrel and 70% in tank, it has classic apple, citrus blossom and edgy minerality in its fresh, focused, downright racy style. I love the purity here. It should flesh out well with another year in bottle and drink nicely for 2-3 years. (JD)" (10/2014) Wine Spectator: "This white features a lively edge, with blanched almond and jicama notes framing a core of heather, white peach, yellow apple and melon rind flavors.

2012 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape "Vieilles Vignes"

93-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Brilliant ruby-red. Sexy, expressive aromas of raspberry preserves, cherry compote and potpourri, with a smoky overtone. Lush and pliant, offering juicy red fruit and lavender pastille flavors that become spicier with air. Silky tannins add grip and shape to the long, spice-accented finish, which shows superb clarity and thrust. (JR)" (1/2014)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A step up over the traditional cuvee, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is made from 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre, all destemmed, that was aged 60% in demi-muid and 40% in tank.

2012 Olivier Hillaire Châteauneuf-du-Pape

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Looking at his traditional cuvee, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape (a blend of mostly Grenache) is a thick, massive effort that got a big 'wow!' in the notes. Showing spectacular aromas and flavors of raspberry, spice, licorice and Provencal herbs, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, layers of sweet tannin and fantastic mid-palate depth. Fruit loaded and a hedonistic dream, it should dish out tons of pleasure over the coming decade. Drink 2014-2023.

2010 Xavier Vins "Cuvée Anonyme" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $55.00)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The powerful, rich 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Anonyme reveals an off-the-chart level of extract, lots of glycerin (nearly 16% natural alcohol) and copious black cherry, blueberry, forest floor, lavender and graphite characteristics. This full-throttle red requires 3-4 years of cellaring and should keep for two decades. Xavier Vignon, along with Philippe Cambie, are probably the two most highly renowned oenologists in Chateauneuf du Pape as well as some of the surrounding Cotes du Rhone regions.

2011 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

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.

92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Possibly even better, with a voluptuous, hedonistic slant, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Secrets de Pignan is a blend of 100% Grenache that comes all from the sandy soils of the Pignan lieu-dit. Beautifully fruited and textured, with plenty of dark berry fruit, crushed flowers, violets and sweet spice, this full-bodied, sexy 2012 has a rich, layered feel, low acidity and sweet tannin.

Despite the richness level here, it remains gorgeously fresh and even elegant. Enjoy it over the coming 10-12 years. Drink now-2024.

2012 Domaine de la Janasse "Tradition" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Looking pretty close to the 2009 and 2010 in terms of quality, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape has slightly less Grenache than prior vintages, with 15% Mourvedre, 8% Syrah and the rest Grenache. Violets, underbrush, sweet black raspberry and cassis all flow from this medium to full-bodied, pure and elegantly styled effort. Showing plenty of fruit, good acidity and terrific purity, it should evolve gracefully for 12-15 years. Drink 2015-2027.

An elegant, stylish and polished example of this cuvée, it comes closest in my mind to a lighter-weight 2010. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and with fine tannin, it will drink well for 10-15 years. (JD)" (10/2014) 93-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby.

A blend of approximately 85% Grenache, 8-9% Syrah, and the rest Mourvedre and other varietals from 50-100+ year old vines aged in foudre, it exhibits a dense plum/purple color along with a big, sweet bouquet of beef blood, grilled herbs, barbecue smoke, lavender, sweet cassis and kirsch and a hint of Asian soy.

Gorgeous all around, with a sexy, voluptuous profile, it gives up notions of sweet blackberries, currants, underbrush, strawberry and mineral on the nose. Full-bodied, rich and brilliantly textured, with a relatively accessible profile, it should still be given a year, or three, in the cellar once released.

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. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028." (10/2008) ...Read More »

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The smoking good 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape La Combe des Fous (60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and the rest Muscardin, Vaccarese and Cinsault) is a structured, serious wine that gives up notions of blackberry, currants, melted licorice and assorted meaty nuances that flow to a full-bodied, seamless wine that has terrific fruit intensity, masses of fine tannin and a blockbuster finish. Give it 3-4 years in the cellar and drink it through 2032. Drink 2016-2032. Always one of the highlight visits during my time spent working in the Southern Rhone, Clos Saint-Jean, ...Read More »

2012 Domaine de Marcoux "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even better and showing plenty of similarities to the 2011, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a 3,000-bottle lot of roughly 100% Grenache that was brought up all in stainless steel (this is due to not having enough juice to fill a larger barrel). Per Sophie, this cuvee was difficult to taste early on (which is a comment I heard often with regards to the 2012s) but had just recently turned the corner. Seamless, layered and textured, with overflowing Grenache generosity, this full-bodied effort gives up plenty of pure raspberry, black raspber ...Read More »

2005 Les Cailloux "Cuvée Centenaire" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Wine Spectator: "Richly layered, with currant paste, Black Forest cake, espresso, mesquite, date and incense notes. Ripe and lush, this is far more supple than most of its 2005 peers. The finish is long and dense, but very silky, with lingering notes of macerated fruit and black tea. Drink now through 2025." (4/2008)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Centenaire is dense ruby to the rim and exhibits an almost explosive nose of kirsch liqueur intermixed with spring flowers, spice box, and some roasted herbs and a subtle whiff of oak. It is dense, pure, full-bodied, relative ...Read More »

2004 Domaine de la Janasse "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque ruby. Incredibly powerful bouquet encompasses cherry, blackberry, cassis, candied plum, dark chocolate, licorice and garrigue Positively mouthfilling, with potent, liqueur-like dark fruit, licorice and mocha flavors, but also with surprising freshness and cut. As weighty as this is, there's a sense of elegance, too. Finishes juicy, sweet and impressively long, with persistent cassis and blackberry flavors. Wow!" (2/2007)94 points Wine Spectator: "Packed with dark plum, boysenberry and blueberry fruit, along with graphite, black tea, sweet smoke and licorice. Long finish show ...Read More »

2012 Clos du Mont Olivet "Cuvée des Papet" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Top Pick!
2012 Clos du Mont Olivet "Cuvée des Papet" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94-96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Brilliant ruby. Spice- and mineral-accented red fruits and lavender on the intensely perfumed nose. Juicy, focused and pure, with excellent depth to its raspberry and cherry compote flavors. Puts on weight with air without any loss of vibrancy. The mineral element carries strongly through the finish, which features silky tannins and a strong red fruit quality. Extremely elegant Chateauneuf, balanced to age." (2/2014)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Much more concentrated than the traditional cuvée, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape La Cuvee du Papet is a blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 1 ...Read More »

2007 Domaine de la Jaufrette Châteauneuf du Pape

The wines of Domaine de la Jaufrette are resolutely old-fashioned, as the domaine has refused to change the winemaking style since the André and Paulette Chastan moved to Orange in the 1950s. The couple both came from winemaking families in the Southern Rhone (André from Vaqueyras, Paulette from Gigondas), but they wanted to create their own doamine, so as a young married couple, they purchased land just on the edge of Chateauneuf-du-Pape and planted 5 hectares of Cotes-du-Rhone. Over the next decades, they took over the nearby family vineyards in Vacqu... Read More »

2007 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Back In Stock!
2007 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Vieux Telegraphe may be the greatest wine made at this property since the 2005 and 1998. Dense ruby/purple-tinged with an exquisite nose of salty sea breezes, licorice, ground pepper, jammy black cherries, black currants, figs, and plums, this is a full-bodied, rich, Provencal-styled offering with lots of sweet, ripe tannin. It is surprisingly accessible for a Vieux Telegraphe (this wine normally shuts down several years after bottling), but it should have great longevity (25+ years) given its power, full-bodied mouthfeel, and enormous length an ...Read More »

2007 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Bid on this bottle of 2007 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (96RP, 96WS, 94ST, 94W&S). Wine Spectator: "**Collectibles** This extremely dense red delivers layers of melted fig, mulled boysenberry and black currant fruit, all laced with notes of charred mesquite, hoisin sauce and Kenya AA coffee. The long, silky mouthfeel belies the latent power in reserve and there's a lot of it, with waves of grip driving the finish. Best from 2010 through 2030." (12/2009)
