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 »

2012 J.L. Chave Selection "Mon Coeur" Côtes du Rhône

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Youthful purple color. Ripe dark berry and cherry-cola scents are enlivened by a peppery quality and a hint of violet. Round and fleshy on the palate, offering gently sweet blackberry and cassis flavors and a zesty spine of acidity. Finishes long and spicy, with building sweetness, soft tannins and a hint of smokiness." (3/2014)90 points Wine Spectator: "Bay leaf, olive and iron notes weave around a core of steeped black cherry and black currant fruit, with a sanguine accent leaving a mouthwatering edge on the finish. Drink now through 2016." (11/2014) K&L Notes: 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah.

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."

(JD)" (12/2014) Antonio Galloni: "Ripe peach and melon aromas are complemented by honey and ginger, with a hint of white pepper adding urgency.

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 Delas Freres "Clos Boucher" Condrieu (Pre-Arrival)

This team continues to knockout it out of the park. Run by Jacques Grange and Claire Darnaud, all of these new releases merit serious attention.

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.

2010 E. Guigal "Château d'Ampuis" Côte-Rotie (Pre-Arrival)

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Cote Rotie Chateau d’Ampuis is an off-the-hook effort that easily competes with the more expensive single-vineyard releases. Seamless, gorgeously pure and seriously concentrated and full-bodied, it’s an insanely gorgeous Syrah offers layers of creme de cassis, vanilla bean, creamy licorice and smoked meat aromas and flavors. Still a baby, it needs to be forgotten for 4-5 years, at which point it should offer another two decades or more of longevity. Don’t miss this beauty!

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. According to Marc Perrin, the vines that provide the fruit for this wine are now over 80 years old."

Fleshy and expansive in the mouth, offering juicy red and dark berry liqueur flavors and a suave note of candied violet. Picks up spiciness and smokiness with air and finishes on a sweet dark berry note, with good nervy cut and floral persistence.

Medium to full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, ripe and textured, it gives up terrific kirsch, blackberry, toasted spice and cured meat-like aromas and flavors.

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Just a small step back from the Les Bessards, the 2012 Hermitage Domaine des Tourettes is a stunning effort that exhibits blockbuster notes of toasted spice, leather, peppery herbs and sweet black and blue fruit. Seeing 16 months in 60% new French oak, it's a powerful, concentrated and full-bodied effort that has lots of tannin, but more than enough fruit to handle it. Like the Les Bessards, shorter-term cellaring is advised here and it will have over two decades of longevity. This team continues to knockout it out of the park.

(9/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Lovely, soft berry fruit intermixed with lavender and other Provencal herbs, damp earth and spicy pepper notes give way to a medium-bodied, soft, complex, easygoing red to drink over the next 2-3 years."

Dense, full-bodied and concentrated, with a hedonistic, voluptuous slant, drink it over the coming 6-7 years. Another brilliantly run estate in the Northern Rhône, Eric and Joel Durand have made rich, concentrated and textured 2012s that show the vintage nicely. These should drink nicely on release yet evolve gracefully. Their 2013s follow suit, with their top cuvee, the Cornas Confidence, being the only wine that wil ...Read More »

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

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.

2004 Domaine La Roquete "L'Accent de Roquete" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape l’Accent La Roquete is super-rich, elegant, with beautiful raspberry and kirsch liqueur notes dominating the aromatics, a voluptuous, full-bodied mouthfeel with an almost Pinot Noir-like freshness and flavor profile. This is a beauty that can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15 years." (2/2007)92 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and structured, with blackberry, dark licorice, graphite and truffle notes. The long, solid finish has a nice buried minerality. Grenache and Mourvèdre. Best from 2008 through 2017. 330 cases made." (5/2007) Jancis Robinson: "Fireworks and minerals on t ...Read More »

2012 Vincent Paris "Granit 60 Vieilles Vignes" Cornas Top Pick!
2012 Vincent Paris "Granit 60 Vieilles Vignes" Cornas

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There’s 5,000 bottles of the sensational 2012 Cornas Granit 60 Vielles Vignes. Completely destemmed and aged 18 months in 2- to 8-year-old barrels, its purple/black color is followed by an incredible nose of black raspberry, kirsch, crushed rock and violets. Possessing more tension and depth than the Granit 30, it’s full-bodied, thrillingly rich and has solid underlying acidity and tannic structure. Give it a couple years and drink bottles through 2025. An up and coming superstar of Cornas, Vincent Paris manages his roughly 20-acre estate to produce thr ...Read More »

2010 Alain Voge "Vieilles Vignes" Cornas

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Cornas Vieilles Vignes has off-the-charts richness as well as an extraordinarily precise nose of blackberry and blueberry jam intermixed with cassis, charcoal, lead pencil shavings, pen ink and acacia flowers. A wine of exceptional intensity with a multidimensional mouthfeel and a 55-second finish, this quintessential Cornas should drink well for 20-30 years. ...The three 2010 Cornas represent the pinnacle of Voge's winemaking. They are the finest wines I have yet tasted from this estate (and I've been tasting their wines since the late sevent ...Read More »

2009 Château des Tours Côtes-du-Rhône Back In Stock!
2009 Château des Tours Côtes-du-Rhône

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(65% grenache, 20% syrah and 15% cinsault): Deep red. A powerful, deeply scented bouquet evokes red and dark berries, star anise, cinnamon and pungent flowers. Packs a serious punch but there's no excess fat here; the intense raspberry and blackberry flavors show excellent clarity and a hint of candied lavender. Finishes bright and precise, with the raspberry and floral notes carrying through. This wine transcends its category and will appeal greatly to those who prize balance over brute force."

2005 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Laurence" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Laurence appears to be the finest example of this wine since the 1998. Wonderfully rich, concentrated notes of roasted Provencal herbs, jammy black cherries, new saddle leather, and loamy soil are present in this stunningly rich, full-bodied wine. With excellent concentration, moderate tannin, and fabulous length as well as intensity, it should be released in 2009-2010, and will keep for 20-25 years." (10/2008)96 points Wine Spectator: "This old-school version shows the dense, grippy profile of the vintage, with a great tannic backbone running thr ...Read More »

2005 Domaine La Roquète Châteauneuf-du-Pape

90-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Domaine La Roquete Chateauneuf du Pape has a deep ruby/purple color and a beautiful, sweet nose of ripe Grenache (think kirsch liqueur) along with raspberries, licorice, pepper, and some Provencal spiciness. About 30% stems were used in the making of this wine, and it is both powerful and elegant, with zesty acidity and moderately high tannin. It is an attractive wine that can be drunk early on or cellared for 12-15 years.

2012 Raymond Usseglio Châteauneuf-du-Pape "Cuvée Impériale"

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "My favorite of the lineup, and one of the top Châteauneufs in the vintage, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Imperiale is 95% Grenache (5% other varieties) that comes from 100-year-old vines and the pure sand soils of the Piallon (near Rayas) and Girardette (near Charbonnière) lieux-dits. It offers awesome black and blue fruits, violets, licorice and crushed rock-like minerality in its full-bodied, balanced, pure and elegant profile. Impressively concentrated, inky colored and with sweet tannin, it’s capable of evolving for 12-15 years or more. (JD)" (10/2014) ...Read More »

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.

2012 Vincent Paris "Granit 30" Cornas

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Paris’s entry-level cuvee that comes from some of the lower slopes, the inky colored 2012 Cornas Granite 30 is a great bottle of wine that’s been an incredible value in the past couple of vintages. Classic Cornas, yet with a more approachable feel than the other cuvees, it has lots of wild herbs, saddle leather, garrigue, beef blood and currant-like fruit on the nose. Medium to full-bodied, impressively concentrated and ripe, it stays fresh, nicely focused and has enough structure to evolve for upward of a decade."

This has outstanding potential and is a beautiful Syrah. (JD)" (2/2015)90 points Wine Spectator: "The dark bramble and macerated blackberry fruit flavors pump along, with singed cedar and mesquite notes lining the finish. An iron flash adds a nice tangy hint. (Web-2015)"

2010 E. Guigal "Ex-Voto" Hermitage Rouge (Previously $400)

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "At the risk of sounding like a broken record, the 2010 Hermitage Ex Voto is as good as it gets. Following some of the most concentrated, rich Cote Roties ever made, it still ratcheted up the concentration level with its massive, palate saturating levels of gamey dark fruits, cassis, licorice, chocolate, graphite and powdered rock. It this beauty doesn’t make fireworks go off in your head, I don’t know what will.

At once rich and lively, showing excellent back-end power. #2, from Rocoules: Intense, mineral-accented citrus and orchard fruit aromas, with a sexy floral nuance building with air. Bright, focused and mineral-driven, with a strong Meyer lemon quality lingering on the tangy finish. #3, also from Rocoules: Showing more emphasis on orchard fruit than the first Rocoules tank, with pow ...Read More »
