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 »

2012 Domaine de la Cote de L'Ange "Tradition" Chateauneuf-du-Pape

91 points Wine Spectator: "A dark, slightly brawny style, with fig and plum fruit studded with licorice root, Turkish coffee and tar notes. Sage, bay leaf and lavender details line the fleshy finish. Drink now through 2022." (10/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape checks in as a blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 15% Mourvedre that’s aged in a combination of foudre and tronconique tanks. It has classic and old-school notes of ground pepper, saddle leather, garrigue and bouquet garni to go with a medium-bodied, tight, firm and tannic feel on the palate.

2012 Bosquet des Papes "Chante le Merle Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A remarkable effort, the blockbuster 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Chante le Merle Vieilles Vignes comes close to the 2010 in terms of quality. Coming from a selection of the top plots and old vines of the estate, co-fermented, and with no destemming, it offers off-the-charts notes of cassis, chocolate-covered cherries, garrigue, licorice and toasted spice. Possessing massive richness and depth, with tons of glycerin, texture and length, it stays remarkably elegant, balanced and pure on the palate, with building tannin and yet no hard edges.

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 »

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. (JR)" (1/2014)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A step up over the traditional cuvee, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is made from 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre, all destemmed, that was aged 60% in demi-muid and 40% in tank.

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

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Vieux Telegraphe may be the greatest wine made at this property since the 2005 and 1998. 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 »

2003 Paul Autard "Cuvée La Côte Ronde" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Wine Spectator: "Beautifully pure blackberry and raspberry fruit is woven with toast, grilled herb and tar flavors, all buttressed with a firm, tannic spine. Concentrated, long, chewy finish opens in the glass to show an elegant side as well. Should age wonderfully. Drink now through 2020." (9/2005)93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Spicy and energetic on the nose, with vibrant blackberry, cherry and sweet floral aromas. This displays more energy and vivacity than the 2004 version today. Sweet, velvety and round, with lush dark berry, mocha and coffee flavors that build and expand through the fin ...Read More »

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.

2012 Bosquet des Papes "Tradition" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

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 »

2009 E. Guigal Châteauneuf-du-Pape

92 points Antonio Galloni: "Deep red. Potent cherry, redcurrant and floral scents are given a musky, earthy touch by a hint of rhubarb. 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." (4/2015) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape appears to be a beautiful wine, although perhaps not at the level of the 2007 or 2010 (which will not be released for another two years).

Aged in a combination of concrete tank and older, larger barrels, it’s a drop-dead gorgeous 2012 that reveals tons of sweet red and black fruits, lavender, pepper, licorice and hints of garrigue.

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

The long finish is still tightly wound. Best from 2011 through 2025."

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.

The long, tarry finish really pounds it out authoritatively, with fruit and minerality to burn. Has the power of the previous vintages, but with far better definition. Best from 2009 through 2030." (10/2007)96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby. Smoky raspberry and creme de cassis aromas, with a surreal array of spice, floral and mineral qualities building in the glass. Palate-saturating red berry preserve flavors show a liqueur-lik ...Read More »

2005 Les Cailloux "Cuvée Centenaire" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Wine Spectator: "Richly layered, with currant paste, Black Forest cake, espresso, mesquite, date and incense notes. Ripe and lush, this is far more supple than most of its 2005 peers. The finish is long and dense, but very silky, with lingering notes of macerated fruit and black tea. Drink now through 2025." (4/2008)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Centenaire is dense ruby to the rim and exhibits an almost explosive nose of kirsch liqueur intermixed with spring flowers, spice box, and some roasted herbs and a subtle whiff of oak. It is dense, pure, full-bodied, relative ...Read More »

2012 Domaine Pierre Usseglio "Mon Aïeul" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Usseglio's 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Mon Aieul is a beautiful wine that comes mostly from three terroirs: Les Grand Serres (96-year-old vines) in the south, la Crau (78-year-old vines) in the eastern portion of the appellation, and La Guigasse (75-year-old vines), which is roughly in the middle/north central portion of the appellation near Rayas and Pignan. Coming from 100% Grenache and miniscule yields of 22 hectoliters per hectare (which is basically nothing), it offers gorgeous black raspberry, black cherry, herbes de Provence, pepper and Asia ...Read More »

2012 Chateau Sixtine "Manus Dei" Chateauneuf-du-Pape

92 points Wine Spectator: "Powerfully rendered, with layers of dark fig, blackberry and boysenberry fruit allied to a strong, racy graphite spine. Ganache, licorice and plum sauce notes fill in through the finish. Shows plenty of heft but this drapes wonderfully. Best from 2015 through 2030" (10/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Moving to the 2012s, the Châteauneuf du Pape Manus Dei offers pretty red fruits, kirsch, licorice and dried flowers to go with a medium-bodied, rounded and nicely textured feel on the palate. It’s a mid-weight Châteauneuf that’s best consumed over the coming 3-5 years." (10/2014) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid r ...Read More »

2007 Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A breakout vintage here, these 2007s are pretty much spectacular across the board. Starting out, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape is an incredible wine in every way (including value). Possessing a classic Southern Rhone style in its blackberry, cassis, licorice, roasted herb and cured meat-styled aromas and flavors, it has full-bodied richness, no hard edges and blockbuster length. Count yourself lucky if you purchased a bunch of this on release. (JD)" (8/2014)92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated ruby. Powerful scents of dark berry preserves, incense and smoky herbs. Weighty blackberry ...Read More »

2012 Chateau de Vaudieu "Val de Dieu" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A knockout bottle of wine, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Val de Dieu is made from 78% Grenache, 13% Syrah and 9% Mourvedre, is completely destemmed, and aged 18 months in new demi-muid, of which every trace is soaked up. Showing fabulous sweetness and purity on the nose, with black raspberry, black cherry liqueur, crushed flowers, white pepper and hints of licorice, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, solid mid-palate depth and ultra-fine tannin. I think it will age beautifully, but given its polish and seamlessness, it’s a superb drin ...Read More »

1990 Henri Bonneau "Réserve de Célestins" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Back In Stock! Top Pick!
1990 Henri Bonneau "Réserve de Célestins" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

100 points 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-bod ...Read More »
