2012 Michel Gassier "Cercius Vieilles Vignes" Côtes du Rhone Villages Visan Rouge Top Pick!
2012 Michel Gassier "Cercius Vieilles Vignes" Côtes du Rhone Villages Visan Rouge

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."

Showing its Syrah component, with sappy black and blue fruit flavors sharpened by a spicy nuance. A sexy floral note comes up on a gently tannic finish that lingers with very good persistence. As usual, this wine punches well above its category and should reward at least another four or five years of patience.

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 »

2012 Château Pesquié "Le Paradou" Grenache Vin de France

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Côtes du Ventoux Le Paradou is an awesome value! Made from 100% Grenache (75-year-old vines) and aged 7 months in concrete tank, it offers up a naked expression of Grenache with meaty black cherry, pepper, dried Provencal herbs and earth all soaring from the glass. Medium to full-bodied, brilliantly pure and fresh, it has enough tannin to allow it to evolve gracefully for 3-4 years. It’s a knockout value and this crowd-pleaser should not be missed!

Suave, lush and seamless, offering concentrated, palate-staining flavors of black and blue fruits and lavender pastille are braced by tangy acidity.

92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Looking at the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape, I was able to taste the individual components, with each showing fantastic depth and richness. The Mourvedre is the star of the show and had blockbuster levels of concentration and depth, with perfectly ripe tannin. While certainly not a Grenache year, even this variety showed well here, and it’s obvious that the multiple passes through the vineyard during harvest and then multiple sorts in the winery paid off. This should come together beautifully in bottle and be one of the vintage's strongest efforts. One of ...Read More »

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.

Densely packed but lithe too, with juicy black and blue fruit flavors and a touch of lavender adding lift. Dusty tannins shape the finish, which clings with impressive tenacity and subtle spiciness.

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

This full-throttle red requires 3-4 years of cellaring and should keep for two decades.

The purity here is truly something, and it has fabulous mid-palate concentration, building tannin and massive texture. Given all of the fruit and texture here, it will no doubt drink well in its youth, but it should still be alive and kicking after two decades as well.

2012 Domaine de la Mordorée "Reine des Bois" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Top Pick!
2012 Domaine de la Mordorée "Reine des Bois" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the blockbusters in the vintage, the inky-colored 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape La Reine des Bois – 80% Grenache, completely destemmed and aged 12 months in 80% stainless steel and 20% old barrels – offers fantastic richness and depth in its blackberry liqueur, graphite, wood smoke and crushed-rock-like aromas and flavors. 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.

2008 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Wine Spectator: "Dark, inviting and very alluring, with captivating black tea, charred mesquite and kirsch aromas and flavors allied to a remarkably silky mouthfeel.

2012 Domaine Saint Damien "Vieilles Vignes" Gigondas

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Gigondas Vieilles Vignes is a gorgeous effort that’s made from 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre that comes from three terroirs, the Louisianne, La Moutte and the Souteyrades lieux-dits, all of which are located on the lower plateau near the estate. It offers impressive kirsch, blackberry, toasted spice and licorice to go with a medium to full-bodied, sexy, supple and hard to resist style on the palate. Readers need to buy this by the case and drink it over the coming decade. (JD)" (1/2015) 90-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated ruby. Ripe plum and cherry on the nose, along wit ...Read More »

2005 Tardieu-Laurent "Cuvée Speciale" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

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." (4/2008) 92-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The deep ruby/purple colored 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Speciale reveals notes of tree bark, blackberry, kirsch, licorice, pepper, and roasted meats. It is full-bodied, tannic, has zesty acidity, and a gripping, mu ...Read More »
