1990 Henri Bonneau "Réserve de Célestins" Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Bid on this bottle of 1990 Henri Bonneau "Réserve de Célestins" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (100RP, 18JR). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the greatest wines ever produced ... anywhere ... is the 1990. Having consistently merited 100 points (if my scoring system went higher, it would be there), it continues to perform like a young wine, yet is accessible enough to be appreciated for its extraordinary combination of power, complexity, and majestic layers of flavor. The color is a dark plum/ruby to the edge. The monumental bouquet offers up aromas of liquified charcoaled beef intermixed with pepper, smoke, creme de cassis, kirsch liqueur, truffles, and new saddle leather. This full-bodied, viscous, prodigious Chateauneuf du Pape must be tasted to be believed. It is more like a food than a beverage. Anticipated maturity: now-2030. (RP; eRobertParker.com)" (01/2003)

1990 Paul Jaboulet Aîné "Thalabert" Crozes-Hermitage
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1990 Paul Jaboulet Aîné "Thalabert" Crozes-Hermitage (90RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at The Arches in London. Very youthful in colour. A lovely, intense, almost “pongy” nose with smoky bacon crisps, then later liquorices and menthol. The palate is quite medicinal with a touch of tinned prune indicative of a hot vintage. Good vigour, nice structure with sappy tannins, very youthful, almost primal towards the liquorices and black olive tinged finish. Very fin. (NM)" (07/2009)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1990 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (96RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: " A big step up, and showing that the warmer, richer years dish out the most pleasure at maturity, the 1990 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reserve is drop-dead gorgeous, and close to my favorite of the night. Possessing a thrillingly complex, mature feel, with full-bodied richness and a layered, textured and seamless mouthfeel, this puppy was singing, with loads of lavender, peppery herbs, game and dried flower-like aromas and flavors. I don’t see it getting any better, and would drink it while it still has this voluptuous, hedonistic slant that makes it such a joy to drink. (JD)" (08/2014)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing surprising richness, the 1994 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reserve is a rock-solid Pegau that has classic and mature aromas and flavors, medium-bodied weight, and an impressive finish. I haven’t had a massive amount of ‘94s, but certainly, this is up there with the best I’ve had. Like the ’97 and ’96 though, I’d drink it sooner rather than later. (JD)" (08/2014)

Less obviously ripe aromas of black cherry, dark berries, cocoa powder, and smoke, plus a faint medicinal nuance. More open in the mouth today than Beaucastel's '97; shows lovely sweetness and texture and very good cut and thrust. Hints of leather and game.

This should be a 20-year wine. (RP)" (10/1997)

2012 Auguste Clape "Renaissance" Cornas
Bid on this bottle of 2012 Auguste Clape "Renaissance" Cornas (95RP, (90-92ST)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The entry level Cornas that gets some young vines, the 2012 Cornas Renaissance is just like the straight Cornas, only slightly softer and more approachable. Cassis, black raspberry, leather, crushed rock and liquid mineral-like qualities all give way to a full-bodied, concentrated, yet elegant and thrillingly pure Cornas that can be enjoyed anytime over the coming decade or more. While it doesn't get any more Cornas than Clape, these wines also speak just as loudly of the domaine as they do of the steep granite slopes of the appellation. There's always something unique in these wines, something bloody, meaty and iron-like, and I've yet to find something similar in other wines. In my opinion, these wines are the epitome of Cornas.

1990 Paul Jaboulet Aîné "La Chapelle" Hermitage
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1990 Paul Jaboulet Aîné "La Chapelle" Hermitage (100RP, 97WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1990 La Chapelle is sexy and opulent. I had the 1990 at the Jaboulet tasting, and again out of a double magnum three months ago. On both occasions it was spectacular, clearly meriting a three-digit score. The modern day equivalent of the 1961, it deserves all the attention it has garnered. The color remains an opaque purple, with only a slight pink at the edge. Spectacular aromatics offer up aromas of incense, smoke, blackberry fruit, cassis, barbecue spice, coffee, and a touch of chocolate. As it sits in the glass, additional nuances of pepper and grilled steak emerge. There is extraordinary freshness for such a mammoth wine in addition to abundant tannin, an amazing 60-second finish, and a level of glycerin and thick, fleshy texture that have to be tasted to be believed. Despite its youthfulness, the 1990 La Chapelle is lovely to drink, although it will be e

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 1,800 cases of the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Mon Aieul (100% tank-aged Grenache). It represents an awesome naked/virginal expression of Grenache from three vineyard parcels planted in sand, clay, and limestone soils. After tasting this wine on five separate occasions, I can state with certainty, it has the most saturated color of any Mon Aieul produced to date. Moreover, its perfume of blueberry liqueur, black raspberries, licorice, roasted meat juices, and lavender is incredible. Full-bodied power, a multilayered mouthfeel, tremendous purity, and awesome concentration put this wine in a class by itself. This sensational Chateauneuf du Pape is still very young, and 3-4 years of cellaring is required. It should be a modern day legend and last for nearly two decades. (RP)" (10/2009)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: " Starting with the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reserve, this wine showed spectacularly on release, closed down for a few years, and has now emerged, at close to full maturity, and is straight-up fabulous. Out of the entire tasting, it remained my favorite. Giving up gorgeous blackberry, currants, garrigue, pepper and beef blood, it hits the palate with a massive, full-bodied texture that carries layers of sweet fruit, awesome concentration and blockbuster length. Tasting like the essence of both this estate and the terroir, it’s an incredible wine that I’m happy to taste/drink anytime. It will continue to evolve gracefully, but I see no reason to delay gratification. (JD)" (08/2014)

A blend of 80% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Mourvedre tipping the scales at 15.5% natural alcohol (which is slightly less than the Chaupin), the wine has an inky black/purple color as well as incredible density and richness, with notes of soy, blackberry, and blueberry liqueur, incense, acacia flowers and licorice.

Bright and sappy, with vibrant, penetrating flavors of black fruits, minerals, pepper and roasted meat. Comes across as sweeter than the Chaillot; this too is powerful, but here the substantial dusty tannins seem riper and more pliant, and make their presence felt much later.

2006 E. Guigal Hermitage
Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2006 E. Guigal Hermitage (92ST, 92WS, 90WE). Wine Spectator: "This has ample cocoa, plum and coffee flavors mixed together, laced with dark spice and charcoal notes. A sanguine edge flitters through the finish, along with hints of sandalwood and singed cedar, lending a rustic hint. Not quite as refined as the top examples, but still very solid. Best from 2013 through 2023. 4,165 cases made." (09/2012)
