2016 Saint Cosme Côtes du Rhône Top Pick!
2016 Saint Cosme Côtes du Rhône

It's unusual to see Syrah-led blends coming out of the southern Rhone but this has become one of the signature wines of prestigious Gigondas producer Château de Saint Cosme. The fruit comes from the Vinsobres appellation in the northern part of the southern Rhone and the terraces of the Villefranchian subregion on the Gard side of the Rhone River. Imbued with the full flavor and richness that Syrah provides and from this exceptional 2016 vintage, you can't go wrong with this pleasing and intense French red.

Rejoice Tavel! In a time when very high quality rosés line our shelves, when pink wines from Spain, the U.S., South Africa, Italy, and all over the land of France are finally getting some much-deserved attention, we must give Tavel its special due. This is the original dedicated rosé appellation. In fact, so good is the fabled rosé from Tavel, that by law no other sort of wine can call itself Tavel!

2015 J.L. Chave Selection "Offerus" Saint-Joseph Top Pick!
2015 J.L. Chave Selection "Offerus" Saint-Joseph

93 points Wine Spectator: "Intense, with a racy graphite edge driving the core of crushed plum and cherry fruit along. Dried anise, fruitcake and black tea notes run along the edges, adding range and texture. Drink now through 2026. (JM)" (7/2018) 92 points Vinous: "Opaque ruby. Deep-pitched black and blue fruit, floral pastille, olive and smoky mineral character on the nose. Sweet, spicy and penetrating on the palate, offering juicy blueberry and cherry cola flavors underscored by a peppery quality that adds back-end spiciness and cut. Youthfully firm tannins add shape to the finish, which hangs on w ...Read More »

2013 Vidal-Fleury Côtes-du-Rhône

95 points Decanter: "Enjoys a deep nose with white pepper, graphite notes and bright red fruits. The palate is powerful and intense with black cherry and dark, muscular berry fruit, crisp acid and some neat, grippy, slightly salted tannins. The finish is long with berries and spice." (6/2016) Jancis Robinson: "Tank/cask sample. 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 5% Carignan and other varieties. Four months in foudres and stainless steel. Rich and complete. Nice peppery note. An interesting wine." (10/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cotes du Rhone is mostly Grenache and Syrah, and has a classic southern Rhone ...Read More »

2016 Domaine des Bosquets "La Colline" Gigondas (Pre-Arrival)

96-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Utterly sensational, and unquestionably one of the top 2-3 wines in the vintage, the 2016 Gigondas La Colline is 100% Grenache that’s from the La Colline lieu-dit which is close to the domain, at an elevation of 350 meters above sea-level. It was mostly destemmed (there are 20% stems), fermented in concrete tanks and aging all in 2-4-year-old demi-muids. Notes of Camphor, black raspberries, strawberries, crushed rocks, garrigue and ground pepper all flow to an incredibly layered, concentrated 2016 that has sweet tannin, and an opulent, decadent profile t ...Read More »

2016 Domaine de la Janasse "Chaupin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

97-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Made with close to 50% stems (the highest in a while) and brought up in foudre and demi-muids (20% new), the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Chaupin sports deep ruby/purple color as well as sensational notes of kirsch liqueur, black raspberries, crushed flowers, crushed rocks, and incense. Just a huge, rich, unctuous wine, it offers everything you could want from Grenache and is certainly going to challenge the 2007 and 2010 as the greatest expression of this terroir to date." (10/2017) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted from a single foudre representing the La Crau Est lieu-dit, the ...Read More »

2015 E. Guigal Condrieu

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Leading off the 2015 whites, the 2015 Condrieu is a blockbuster that delivers gorgeous notes of apricot, white flowers, tangerine, and crushed rocks. Offering a level of depth and richness normally reserved for the La Doriane cuvée, it’s full-bodied, layered, pure, and straight up delicious." (1/2018) 94 points James Suckling: "This has a wealth of richness and complexity with peach custard and apricot pastry aromas echoed on the plush, smooth and sweepingly attractive palate. Drink now." (9/2017) 93 points Vinous: "Pale gold. High-pitched orchard and pit fruit and floral scents show excellent clarity a ...Read More »

2017 Domaine de la Mordorée "La Dame Rousse" Tavel Rosé

92 points Vinous: "Vivid orange-pink. Pungent red berry, cherry and orange zest aromas are accompanied by hints of anise and lavender. Chewy and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry and strawberry flavors supported by a spine of juicy acidity. Smoothly blends power and finesse and finishes very long and flora; a subtle mineral flourish adds lift and cut. Drink 2019-2023. (JR)" (8/2018)

2015 Clos Saint-Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Coming from an old vine selection and a smaller production release for the US market, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes tastes like the classic cuvée, only on steroids. Kirsch, loads of black and blue fruits, flowers and lavender notes all emerge from this full-bodied 2015 that has fine, fine tannin, solid mid-palate depth and a great finish. It certainly offers pleasure today, yet will keep for 10-15 years. (JD)" (10/2017) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A special cuvée produced for the American importer, Eric Solomon, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is huge. It ...Read More »

2015 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Top Pick!
2015 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A vintage compared to 2010 by Laurence, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape looks to be one of the big successes in the vintage. Possessing ripe, rounded, sexy style backed up by solid density and concentration, it offers classic Pegau notes of currants, pepper, and cured meats. Big, rich, concentrated and beautifully textured, it offers a rare depth of fruit and richness in the vintage. 95-97+" (10/2017) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee (scheduled to be bottled November 2017) is a very fine, elegant example of Châteauneuf du Pape. Garrigue and violet ...Read More »

2016 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the reds, I was able to taste all of the components of the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape and this will unquestionably be another terrific vintage from this estate. All of the samples had inky, purple colors, classic aromatics, good acidity and freshness, and balanced profiles. The Mourvèdre, in particular, was beautiful. The Perrin family continues to knock it out of the park and have produced some of the wines of the vintage in 2015. In addition, I’ve included the Famille Perrin Gigondas releases here as well."

2015 Château de Montfaucon Lirac

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Lirac is more extracted and chewy than the charming Côtes du Rhône, with a full-bodied feel on the palate and some tough tannins on the finish. Black cherries, espresso and cinnamon notes all show up in this blend of 50% Grenache, 35% Syrah and 15% Cinsault. (JC)" (11/2017) Wine Spectator: "Bright cherry and pomegranate fruit is laced with a light lavender thread and lightly dusty tannins. Modest in scale but pretty. Drink now through 2018. 1,720 cases made. (JM)" (11/2017) K&L Notes: An 88-acre estate, Château de Montfaucon sits just across the Rhône River from the esteemed v... Read More »

2016 J.L. Chave Selection "Mon Coeur" Côtes du Rhône

Robert Parker writes: "Jean-Louis Chave owns a small negociant operation that produces two wines, a St.-Joseph from the north and this Cotes du Rhone, a blend of Grenache and Syrah from mostly Rasteau and Cairanne." The 2015 Mon Coeur received 91 points from Jeb Dunnuck, and the 2016 has yet to be reviewed.

2016 Domaine de l'Ermitage "Victor" Costières de Nîmes Rouge Top Pick!
2016 Domaine de l'Ermitage "Victor" Costières de Nîmes Rouge

Costières de Nîmes is at the southernmost part of the Rhône Valley sitting on the opposite bank of Chateauneuf du Pape. One of our best new finds is Chateau de l'Ermitage which produces three terrific values with eminent drinkability. The estate's history traces back to the 12th century when the winery produced wine for the pilgrims of Saint Jacques de Compostelle who were traveling the Santiago de Compostela. The property is now owned by Castillon family and today Michel and his son Jerome manage the vineyards and winemaking. The "Victor" is named for t... Read More »
