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.

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.

2014 Domaine de la Mordorée "La Dame Rousse" Tavel

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Truthfully, I think the 2014 Tavel La Dame Rousse is every bit as profound as the more expensive Reine des Bois cuvee, and the entry level Cotes du Rhone rosé, while made in a slightly more fresh style, is just as good as well. Sporting similar notes of framboise, orange blossom, white flowers and strawberries, it's a bigger, rich release that might lack a touch of the finesse and elegance found in the Reine des Bois, yet makes up for it with fabulous intensity, depth and length, while still staying clean, classy and pure.

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."

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.

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.

2013 Domaine Remy Nodin "Le Mazel" Crozes-Hermitage

88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Also rock solid, the 2013 Crozes Hermitage Le Mazel has classic gamy, olive, leather and underbrush notes to go with a solid core of fruit, medium to full-bodied richness and integrated acidity. 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)"

2012 Eric et Joël Durand "Lautaret" St-Joseph

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even better, the 2012 Saint Joseph Cuvee Lautaret sports an inky purple color to go with fabulous notes of ripe black raspberry, cassis, licorice, beef blood and leather. Full-bodied, concentrated and textured, with lots of sweet tannin, it’s a serious Saint Joseph that readers need to buy. (JD)" (12/2014)92 points Wine Spectator: "Dark roasted plum and fig fruit is melded with succulent licorice and ganache notes in this red, which is broad and fleshy in feel, with an echo of iron on the finish. Drink now through 2018." (10/2014)

2012 Rene Rostaing "Ampodium" Côte-Rôtie

92 points Antonio Galloni: "Vivid purple. Fresh black and blue fruits and potpourri on the expressive, expansive nose. Highly floral and spicy, with intense dark berry and bitter cherry flavors becoming sweeter with aeration. This precise wine finishes with excellent thrust, sneaky tannins and lingering floral and Asian spice notes. Rostaing pointed out that this is a perfect example of a 2012 that shows wonderfully now but that's set to shut down in 'about six months,' after which it should be left alone for at least three to five years. (JR)" (2/2015)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Starting with Rene's classic C ...Read More »

2008 Domaine de la Janasse "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Wine Spectator: "This is pure, driven and well-rounded, with a beam of kirsch, crushed plum and bright red currant fruit coursing through, backed by lingering red licorice, violet and sweet tobacco notes. The long finish is still tightly wound. Best from 2011 through 2025." (10/2010)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a 1,000-case blend of 70% old vine Grenache (60- to 100-year-old vines) and 30% Mourvedre (a much higher percentage than normal). One of the top half-dozen Chateauneuf du Papes of the vintage, it boasts a dark plum/ruby/purple color, full body, l ...Read More »

2011 E. Guigal Hermitage Blanc

95 points Wine Spectator: "Viscous in feel, featuring citrus and hazelnut oil notes that weave around a core of white peach, verbena, creamed Cavaillon melon and glazed pear flavors. Long and honeyed through the finish, with a thread of bitter almond offsetting the opulence. Drink now through 2029. (Insider)" (8/2014)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "...the 2011 Hermitage Blanc (there was no Ex-Voto produced in the vintage) is a rich, voluptuously textured effort that has knockout purity and focus. Citrus blossom, vanilla creme, white currants and quince all flow to a full-bodied Hermitage Blanc that has great acid ...Read More »

2011 Domaine Calendal "Plan de Dieu" Côtes du Rhône-Villages (1.5L)

90 points Wine Spectator: "Sleek, featuring pure black cherry and black currant fruit, with a lovely graphite frame and a lingering black tea note on the perfumy finish." (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." (6/2012) K&L Notes: This is a blend of half Grenache and half Mourvedre, 15.5% alcohol. Philippe Cambie and Gilles Ferran run the show here.

2012 M. Chapoutier "de l'Orée" Ermitage Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Ermitage Cuvee de l'Oree is still firing on all cylinders, sporting heavenly notes of powdered rock, white flowers, honeyed orange blossom, white currants and a saltiness that keeps you coming back to the glass. Full-bodied, voluptuous and decadent, drink it anytime over the coming 2-3 decades. (JD)" (12/2014)97 points Wine Spectator: "Densely layered, with ginger geleé, creamed pineapple, heather honey and lemon shortbread notes, all offset by a racy salted butter spine. Bright honeysuckle and chamomile accents dapple the finish, which shows terrific length and definition ...Read More »

2012 Roger Sabon "Secret de Sabon" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (stained labels) (Previously $200)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The top wine of the estate, the tiny production 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Le Secret des Sabon is almost all Grenache and was aged in 600-liter demi-muids. Gorgeous all around, with a sexy, voluptuous profile, it gives up notions of sweet blackberries, currants, underbrush, strawberry and mineral on the nose. Full-bodied, rich and brilliantly textured, with a relatively accessible profile, it should still be given a year, or three, in the cellar once released. It should age effortlessly for 15-20 years or more. Drink 2015-2027. (JD)" (10/2013) 93-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby. Bl ...Read More »

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 »

2009 Château des Tours Côtes-du-Rhône

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A gorgeous effort that has fabulous aromatics and textural richness, the 2009 Cotes du Rhone dishes out the classic kirsch liqueur, ground pepper, forest floor, lavender and spice-box aromas that always seem present in Emmanuel’s wines. Full-bodied, silky and seamless, with a voluptuous yet incredibly pure profile, it is an up-front, seductive effort that should continue to shine through 2019. Drink now-2019. (JD)" (10/2013)92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. A powerful, deeply scented bouquet evokes red and dark berries, star anise, cinnamon and pungent flowers.

2013 Domaine Remy Nodin "Guilherand" Saint-Joseph (375ml)

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An impressive 2013 that comes from the lieu-dit Guilherand, the inky colored 2013 Saint Joseph Guilherand has lots of minerality in its blackberry, cracked black pepper, bacon fat and wild-herb bouquet. This is followed by a medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated effort that has vibrant acidity, good underlying structure, and a clean, classical feel on the finish. Give it a year or so and drink bottles through 2023. (JD)" (2/2015)

2012 Delas Freres "Domaine de Tourettes" Hermitage (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2012 Delas Freres "Domaine de Tourettes" Hermitage (Pre-Arrival)

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. Run by Jacques Grange and ...Read More »

2012 Alain Voge "Vieilles Vignes" Cornas Top Pick!
2012 Alain Voge "Vieilles Vignes" Cornas

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Similar in style, yet deeper and richer, the 2012 Cornas Les Vieilles Vignes comes from 8-9 different parcels and sees roughly 20 months in 15% new French oak barrels. It’s a blockbuster-styled Cornas that doesn’t pull any punches in its sexy, ripe and textured personality. Black raspberry, cassis, licorice, ground herbs and sweet oak all emerge from this polished 2012, and while it dishes out plenty of pleasure now due to its wealth of fruit, it will have 10-15 years of longevity. These awesome wines are made by Alberic Mazoyer. They show relatively mo ...Read More »
