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). The elegant, medium to full-bodied 2 ...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. Packs a serious ...Read More »

2009 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2009 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

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. The opaque purple-colored 2009 exhibits magnificent, rich berry fruit intertwined with cedar, Christmas fruitcake, licorice, charcuterie, roasted meats, smoked duck, kirsch, blackberries and god knows what else. It is an amazingly co ...Read More »

2009 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape is dominated by Grenache with major amounts of Mourvedre, Syrah and other authorized varietals. Its dense ruby/plum color is followed by aromas of smoked meats, roasted Provencal herbs, a gamy character and lots of kirsch, black currant and blue fruits. Rich and full-bodied, it is softer than most young vintages of Vieux Donjon tend to be, and should drink well for 12-15 years." (10/2011)93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid purple. Powerful cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by a sexy floral nuance. Smooth and deep on the palate, offering juicy ...Read More »

2009 Paul Jaboulet Aîné "La Chapelle" Hermitage (1.5L) (Previously $500)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As I wrote last year, the 2009 Hermitage La Chapelle is easily the greatest, most profound La Chapelle since the 1990. Most of this cuvee comes from Le Meal and Les Bessards vineyards, with a touch of Les Roucoules fruit in the blend. It is an opaque purple-colored wine with enormous concentration in addition to an extraordinary bouquet of graphite, creme de cassis, blackberries, licorice, beef blood and a touch of smoked game. Boasting phenomenal intensity, a full-bodied mouthfeel and 50 years of longevity, the only thing that could possibly hold it bac ...Read More »

2009 E. Guigal Hermitage

92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Hermitage possesses a dense purple color as well as lots of creme de cassis, camphor and acacia flowers. Deep, rich and full-bodied, this massive blockbuster will need a decade of cellaring after its release. (RP)" (12/2013)93 points Wine Spectator: "Features a slightly roasted frame, showing espresso and bittersweet cocoa notes, with a rock-solid core of dark plum, black currant and licorice flavors that flow through the grippy, tar- and loam-edged finish. Reveals singed alder and bay accents in the background. Needs cellaring to settle into itself." (2/2015) Jancis Robinson: "Very dark. Spi ...Read More »

2009 Delas Freres "Domaine des Tourettes" Hermitage

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The magnificent 2009 Hermitage Domaine des Tourettes boasts a black/purple color as well as a wonderful nose of creosote, incense, charcoal, blackberry jam, acacia flowers, white chocolate and a hint of espresso roast. Full-bodied and unctuously textured with low acidity and magnificent density, this 2009 can be drunk in 5-6 years or cellared for 30-50 years." (12/2011)93 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and flashy, with lots of roasted fig, plum and blackberry fruit, though it's held in check for now by muscular ganache, maduro tobacco and freshly roasted espresso notes. Very grippy o ...Read More »

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. Opulent and voluptuously textured with moderate tan ...Read More »

2009 Roger Sabon "Prestige" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The monumental 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige is a creative blend of 60% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre, and the rest grapes such as Vaccarese, Muscardin, Cinsault, Terret Noir and Counoise. Most of the fruit is aged in foudre, with the Syrah and Mourvedre components aged in new oak. The fabulous 2009 offers an opaque purple color along with a gorgeous nose of charcoal, burning embers, black currants, soy, Asian plum sauce, blackberries and kirsch. The wine-s complexity is nearly off the charts. Moreover, once it hits the palate, the high gl ...Read More »

2009 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Wine Spectator: "Sinewy and reserved, with a light dusting of cocoa powder over the tangy damson plum, red licorice and cassis notes. The long, supple finish, with a lovely wafting note of Lapsang souchong tea, is packed with minerality and tight-grained tannins that will need time to fully evolve. One of the more backward 2009s, though this should pick up steam in the cellar. Best from 2013 through 2025." (11/2011)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 is showing better out of bottle than it was last year. Gorgeous kirsch liqueur notes, raspberry jam, forest floor, spice box, new saddle leather and a ...Read More »

2009 Domaine Grand Veneur "Les Origines" Châteauneuf du Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Origines (1,500 cases produced) is a blend of 50% Grenache, a whopping 30% Mourvedre and 20% Syrah with the latter two components spending time in new oak barrels. All of the fruit comes from vines that are nearly 70 years of age. A great wine with an opaque ruby/purple color, sensational fruit intensity and notes of graphite, lavender, licorice, lead pencil shavings and subtle smoke, it is full-bodied, rich and powerful with low acidity and sweet, velvety tannins. It should drink well for 15+ years." (10/2010) 91-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque ruby. ...Read More »

2009 Pierre Usseglio "Mon Aïeul" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full ruby. Intense black raspberry and mulberry aromas are complicated by suggestions of Asian spices, licorice and musky herbs. Bright and sappy on the palate, with a seamless texture to the spice-accented red and dark berry compote flavors. Notes of lavender and allspice carry through the long, juicy, nicely focused finish. I suspect that this wine will drink well on the young side." (1/2012)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dark ruby/plum 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Mon Aieul (in most years a blend of 95 to nearly 100% Grenache, aged 90% in cement tanks and the remaining 10% ...Read More »

2009 M. Chapoutier "Croix de Bois" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 535 cases of the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Croix de Bois (100% Grenache from 110-year-old vines planted on the famed small rocks called Galets Roules). It is a classic Chateauneuf with lots of roasted herb, licorice, cedar, resiny pine forest, kirsch liqueur and black raspberry characteristics. It possesses a deep plum/garnet color as well as full body, 15+% natural alcohol and 15 years of drinkability." (10/2011)94 points Wine Spectator: "A lush, captivating, velvety style, with gorgeous mouthfeel to the layers of fig sauce, warm linzer torte and cassis. Hints of pastis, ...Read More »

2009 Clos Saint-Jean "Combe des Fous" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More restrained as well as less intense and powerful, the dense purple-hued 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape La Combe des Fous offers elegant kirsch notes. While it is not quite up to the level of the 2005, 2007 or 2010, it is a rich, well proportioned effort offering notes of pen ink, raspberries, blueberries, sweet cherries and spring flowers. Full-bodied as well as polished and focused (especially for a 2009), it should drink nicely for 15-20 years." (10/2011)94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full ruby. An exotic, highly perfumed bouquet evokes red and dark berry preserves, star anise and a w ...Read More »

2009 E. Guigal "Vignes de l'Hospice" St-Joseph

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Checking in at 13.7% natural alcohol (it’s normally in the 13.5 rage), the blockbuster 2009 Saint Joseph Vignes des Hospice is more open, broad and expansive on the palate than the ’10, yet possesses a similar level of concentration and structure. Giving up plenty of barbecued meat, toasted bread, smoke and black raspberry jam, this puppy is another gorgeous Syrah from this vineyard. It offers plenty of pleasure now, yet will be better in another handful of years and drink beautifully through 2029.

2009 Rene Rostaing "Cote Blonde" Cote Rotie

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Similarly concentrated to the 2010, yet not quite as refined or elegant, the 2009 Côte Rôtie Côte Blonde offers knockout richness and depth to go with notes of graphite, sweet black raspberry, earth, and spice. Possessing exuberant and overflowing levels of fruit, with chewy, rustic, yet ripe tannin, this is a blockbuster to drink over the coming 15-20 years." (2/2015)95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep, vivid ruby. Explosively perfumed aromas of red and dark berry preserves, potpourri, licorice and incense, with intense minerality adding lift and an incisive quality. Black raspberry a ...Read More »
