2010 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $100+) Top Pick!
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." (2/2015)96 points Wine Spectator: "*#8 on Top 100 Wines of 2013* Dark, dense and very closed now, this has a tremendous core of crushed plum, linzer torte and blackberry confiture waiting in reserve.

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 »

2005 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Wine Spectator: "*Ranked #8 on the Top 100 Wines of 2008, Collectibles* Really dense and locked up now, this is packed with dark fig, currant and blackberry fruit shrouded by layers of tar, hot stone, bittersweet licorice and espresso. The long, dense finish has a great tug of iron buried within it. Best from 2011 through 2030." (4/2008)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Reminiscent of the 1995, the 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape is tight, structured and backward, with high acidity and tannin.

2007 Domaine de la Jaufrette Châteauneuf-du-Pape

According to the importer, Paris Wine Company: "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... Read More »

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.

2012 Clos Saint Jean "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from older vines and a tank-aged blend of roughly 85% Grenache and the balance Mourvedre and Syrah, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes has additional levels of kirsch, garrigue, ground herbs and black raspberry as well as a full-bodied, decadently textured profile on the palate. Despite the richness level here, it remains gorgeously fresh and even elegant. Enjoy it over the coming 10-12 years. Drink now-2024.

2012 Bosquet des Papes "Tradition" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bottled in March, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape is ripe, textured and downright sexy wine that has overflowing notes of sweet cherries, raspberry, chocolate and spice all emerging from the glass. This full-bodied, dense, concentrated and layered effort is one of the top efforts in the vintage, and will have upward of two decade of longevity. In my view, no estate has made more qualitative gains in the past 3-4 years than Bosquet des Papes. I still remember being floored by the quality of their 2010s, and they've almost matched those efforts with these inc ...Read More »

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.

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The bottled 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee is as compelling as I thought it would be after tasting it last year. A blend of 85% Grenache with the rest Syrah, Mourvedre and small dollops of the other authorized varietals, this wine tends to come from the estate’s holdings in the eastern sector of Chateauneuf du Pape.

An elegant, stylish and polished example of this cuvée, it comes closest in my mind to a lighter-weight 2010.

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.

2012 La Bastide Saint Dominique "Secrets de Pignan Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The star of the show is the 100% Grenache 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Secrets de Pignan. Coming all from sandy soils, it has a polished, classy style in its blueberry, plum sauce, toasted spice and licorice-dominated bouquet. Seeming to show some oak (although I believe this is aged all in tank) and some modern qualities, it stays beautifully balanced and is medium to full-bodied, thrillingly pure, seamless, and has building tannin that emerge on the finish. It’s a fabulous expression of Grenache to drink over the coming decade. (JD)" (10/2014)92 points Antonio Galloni: "Deep ruby. Ri ...Read More »

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."

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.

Concentrated, long, chewy finish opens in the glass to show an elegant side as well. Should age wonderfully. Drink now through 2020."

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.

Sappy, sweet and broad on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering bitter cherry and raspberry preserve flavors and a touch of licorice. The clinging finish is shaped by silky, even tannins and given bite by a hint of cracked pepper."

2007 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

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 »

A big, massive wine, with decadent roasted herbs, black and red fruits, licorice and scorched earth, this full-bodied, mouth-filling and brilliantly concentrated effort doesn’t lack for texture or richness, yet remains fresh and very drinkable. It should drink well for 15-20 years. Drink 2014-2032. (JD)" (10/2013) 91-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright purple. Deeply pitched aromas of blackcurr ...Read More »

Starting off, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape (roughly 75% Grenache with the balance Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault, Muscardin and Vaccarese) is a fleshy, forward effort that offers up classic aromas and flavors of kirsch, ground herbs, white pepper and licorice, as well as full-bodied richness and depth on the palate.

2007 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Paul Avril was a bigger-than-life vigneron, a visionary, and a great teacher, but Vincent has been in charge for a number of years, and he has rewarded his father with what I believe is the greatest Chateauneuf du Pape made since 1978 and 1990, the 2007. I have not only tasted this wine at the estate, but I purchased it for my cellar, and have now drunk it on three separate occasions out of bottle. It is unquestionably one of the great Chateauneufs of my lifetime, and I suspect it will merit a three digit score after another 3-4 years of cellaring. The b ...Read More »

The 2007 may come closest in style to the 1998, the debut vintage, although the tannins are sweeter and the wine is perhaps fatter and richer in the mouth.

2010 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Looking at the 2010s and a brilliant vintage for Laurence, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape offers up classic Pegau aromas and flavors of ripe dark fruits, garrigue, cured meats, tobacco leaf, saddle leather and hints of game. Full-bodied and beautifully concentrated, it offers a seamless, layered profile on the palate with thrilling mid-palate depth, sweet, yet substantial tannin, and a blockbuster finish that stays fresh and beautifully focused. Quite polished by this estates standards, it nevertheless screams southern France and I doubt it’s possible to h ...Read More »

2005 Domaine La Millière "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The brilliant 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a sexy-styled wine, especially for this structured, masculine, and somewhat restrained and backward vintage.

2009 Clos du Mont Olivet "Cuvée des Papet" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Needing more patience, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Papet (75% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre and the balance Syrah aged in foudre) comes from the estate’s oldest vines planted in such famous sites as Mont Olivet and Bois Dauphin. Usually about 1,000 cases are produced and the 2009, which tops the scales at 15.5% alcohol, is brilliant. A gorgeously aromatic bouquet of dark fruits, kirsch, underbrush, raspberries, licorice, spice box and pepper soars from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-tinged wine.

2007 Domaine Charvin Châteauneuf-du-Pape

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I believe the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape is the finest wine ever made at Charvin. Their wines never achieve a lot of color, but this is one of the most saturated ones they have produced. The blend from the 45- to 50-year-old vines is 85% Grenache and the rest equal parts Syrah, Mourvedre, and Vaccarese, all aged in cement tanks prior to being bottled unfiltered. A terrific nose of kirsch, lavender, licorice, forest floor, and spice box soars from the glass of this full-bodied effort. With fabulous density, a multidimensional mouthfeel, and a 45+-second fin ...Read More »

2006 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As I stated last year, there is no Hommage a Jacques Perrin in 2006, but Beaucastel’s 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape is performing even better from bottle than it did last year. 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 »
