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.

2012 Domaine Courtois "La Grange" Vinsobres Top Pick!
2012 Domaine Courtois "La Grange" Vinsobres

Wine Spectator: "A fresh and racy style, with violet-edged plum and raspberry fruit that drives through the stone-tinged finish. Grenache and Syrah. Drink now. 1,300 cases made." (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.

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.

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.

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. (JD)" (10/2013) 91-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque ruby. Highly perfumed scents of fresh blueberry, potpourri and woodsmoke, with a suave floral q ...Read More »

2012 Domaine de Ferrand Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape is jaw-dropping good! Made from 92% Grenache and the rest a mix of permitted varieties, aged all in concrete tank, it boasts fabulous notes of truffles, damp earth, wild herbs and both kirsch and darker berry fruit. Full-bodied, beautifully concentrated and even voluptuous, it covers the mouth with fruit, has sweet tannin and a hard-to-resist personality. Drink this beauty over the coming decade or longer. Enough can’t be said about the quality coming from this tiny estate, and proprietor Philippe Bravey is fashioning one of ...Read More »

2012 Clos Saint-Jean "Combe des Fous" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

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 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 »

2012 Rene Rostaing "Côte Blonde" Côte-Rôtie

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I think the best wine here (at the moment anyways) is the 2012 Cote Rotie Cote Blonde. More reserved and closed initially, it has subtle, yet seductive notes of black raspberry, blackberry, toasted spice, smoke earth and cured meat that gradually open up in the glass. This is followed by a full-bodied, dense, substantial Cote Rotie that has awesome polish to its tannin, a great mid-palate and a smoking finish. It too needs short-term cellaring, but will keep for 2-3 decades. This was another terrific visit with Rene Rostaing, and he's hit gold in both 2 ...Read More »

2004 Domaine La Roquète Châteauneuf-du-Pape

91 points Wine Spectator: "High-toned at first, with cherry and floral aromas. Yet quickly shows more density, with layers of black currant and graphite and taut, sinewy tannins that drive the finish. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2017. 7,500 cases made." (05/07) This estate belongs to the Brunier family who have worked the property for four generations. The vines are a minimum of 45 years old and the wine is composed of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre, and it is bottled unfined and unfiltered. 14.5% abv.
