Bid on this bottle of 2015 Auguste Clape Saint-Peray Blanc.
Starting Bid: $44.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2001 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Châteauneuf-du-Pape "Vieilles Vignes" (96RP, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (400 cases produced) will be the last vintage of this cuvee. A fabulous wine fashioned from 50-100-year old vines (80% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Mourvedre), its dense purple color is accompanied by gorgeous aromas of blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, minerals, and kirsch. As it sits in the glass, notions of pepper and spice also emerge from this unevolved, backward Chateauneuf. It has high levels of extract and richness as well as formidable tannin. The superb purity, immense fruit, and unbridled power of this extraordinary wine should result in something magical in about 7-10 years. However, this is not one of the more forward 2001 Chateauneuf du Papes, so buyers will need patience. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2022+. (RP)" (02/2004)
Starting Bid: $160.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2016 Domaine Pierre Usseglio Châteaunuef-du-Pape (94WE, 93JD, 93JS, 93VN, 92DC, 92RP). Wine Enthusiast: "While voluptuous in body, this rich, densely fruity red offers luscious black-plum and dried strawberry flavors offset by a mineral freshness and subtle notes of porcini mushroom and crushed earth. An enveloping wine, it's seductive already and likely to gain complexity through 2030. (AI)" (12/2019)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2007 Domaine de la Mordorée "Cuvée de la Reine des Bois" Lirac (94RP, 93JD, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The outrageously superb 2007 Lirac La Reine des Bois (equal parts Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Syrah) may be the finest wine Delorme has yet made. Its dense purple color is accompanied by a sumptuous perfume of black fruits, licorice, earth, and pepper. The fruit quality is deep, textured, and pure, and the 35-second finish is superb. This knock-out wine should drink well for 7-8 years. (RP)" (10/2009)
Starting Bid: $100.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2004 E. Guigal "La Turque" Côte-Rôtie (95VN, 94WS, 93RP). Vinous: "Saturated red. Deep, concentrated aromas of kirsch, cola and blackcurrant, with mounting smokiness and Indian spice qualities. Livelier on the palate, offering sweet raspberry and cherry-cola flavors, velvety texture and a strong lashing of cracked pepper. A sweet anise note carries through the sappy, very sweet finish. This wine is already quite seductive. (JR)" (01/2009)
Starting Bid: $411.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine La Bouissiere "Le Font De Tonin" Gigondas.
Starting Bid: $30.00

Bid on this 3-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2009 Domaine du Pegau "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (98JD, 96RP), 1-bottle of 2010 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape ((96-99JD), 98RP, 97WS, 94ST, 93W&S, 93WE), and 1-bottle of 2010 Roger Sabon "Réserve" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (94JD, 94WS, 93RP, 92ST). Of the 2010 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Jeb Dunnuck writes: "More straight and clean, yet with rocking concentration and tannic structure, the 2010 Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée is a beauty! Scheduled to be bottled later this year, it delivers classic aromas of black fruits, mineral, iron, and wild herb qualities on the nose, and what it lacks (at the moment) in complexity, it more than makes up for with brilliant purity, clear, delineated aromas, and awesome focus and length. " (09/2012)

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2017 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (98JD, 96RP, (95-96VN), 94WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "One of the strongest wines in the vintage is the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape from Vincent Avril. This beauty has everything you could ask for. As with the 2018, the blend is heavily shifted toward Mourvèdre, and it offers a mammoth bouquet of black cherries, graphite, cured meats, Asian spices, and assorted garrigue-like nuances. Deep, full-bodied, and concentrated, it stays straight and focused on the palate (whereas the 2016 is more expansive and voluptuous), with a stacked mid-palate, ripe, silky tannins, and fabulous length. You’re going to want bottles of this in the cellar, and comparing the 2007, 2010, 2016, and 2017 over the coming two decades is going to be a treat. 98+" (08/2019)
Starting Bid: $375.00

Bid on this bottle of 2012 M. Chapoutier "Le Méal" Ermitage Rouge (98RP, 96WS, 95VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing similar to last year, the 2012 Ermitage le Meal is a blockbuster that's about as voluptuous and sexy as Hermitage gets. Loaded with cassis, black raspberry, leather, dried violets and wild herbs, this beauty is full-bodied, has tons of sweet tannin and brilliant purity of fruit. Given its wealth of material, low acidity and incredible texture, it should drink well all of its life. (JD)" (09/2015)
Starting Bid: $150.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 E. Guigal "Ex-Voto" Hermitage Blanc (97WS, 96VN, 95RP). Wine Spectator: "This shows stunning purity and range of flavors, with blanched almond, chamomile, green fig, persimmon and apricot notes all weaving around a core of heather honey and brioche. The long finish resonates with minerality. *Collectibles* (JM)" (12/2008)
Starting Bid: $250.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 M. Chapoutier "La Mordorée" Côte-Rôtie (96JD, (95-96JS), 96WS, 95RP, 95VN). James Suckling: "A moody and dark-fruited style that has a wealth of richness with red and dark plums on offer. The palate delivers a rich, spicy and alluring array of dark plums and blackberries. Muscular tannins. From organically grown grapes." (07/2018)

Bid on this magnum of 2015 Chimère (Sine Qua Non) Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L) (OWC - 97JD) in original wood. Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Chimère is a selection of Mourvèdre made by the Maurel brothers of Clos Saint Jean, oenologist Philippe Cambie, and Sine Qua Non genius Manfred Krankl. I believe there’s a touch of Grenache in the blend, as well as some Clairette and other varieties, but the bulk of this cuvée comes from the famed la Crau lieu-dit and is brought up all in demi-muids. It offers a beautiful perfume of sweet kirsch and blueberry fruit intermixed with loads of licorice, sweet spice, violets, and crushed rocks. Full-bodied, super intense, sweetly fruited, perfumed, and complex, it’s a gorgeous 2015 that does everything right." (02/2018)
Starting Bid: $772.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Delas Frères "Les Bessards" Hermitage (97WS, 95RP, 94WE, 93ST). Wine Spectator: "Supertaut now, but loaded with racy black currant, fig and suave mocha notes, all pushed by racy tannins. This offers loads of briary grip, but it's sweet and ripe, with a minerality that blazes through on the finish. Should cruise in the cellar. (JM)" (07/2008)
Starting Bid: $200.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2003 Rene Rostaing "Cote Blonde" Côte-Rotie (97RP, (93-96ST), 96WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Seventy percent of the stems were utilized in the 2003 Cote Rotie Cote Blonde. This profound Cote Rotie boasts an exquisite nose of bacon fat, sweet black cherry jam, raspberries, melted licorice, chocolate, and hints of herbes de Provence, licorice, and smoke. Voluptuous and full-bodied. (RP)" (02/2006)
Starting Bid: $390.00

Bid on this bottle of 2000 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage (96RP, 95WS, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More forward, open and textured, the 2000 Hermitage is an almost promiscuous effort that’s just hard to resist. According to Jean-Louis, this wine has never shut down and has always delivered plenty of pleasure. It has classic cassis and blackberry fruit, bacon fat, violets and herbs to go with a full-bodied, layered and seamless, if not voluptuous, style on the palate. (JD)" (08/2014)
Starting Bid: $412.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 Auguste Clape Cornas (100JD, 98JS, 98WS, 97RP, 96VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "The grand vin of the estate is the 2015 Cornas, and it's even more inky colored than the Renaissance, with a saturated purple/bluish color. It offers a truly profound bouquet of black cherries, melted asphalt, ground pepper, exotic flowers and graphite, as well as the classic iodine/bloodiness I always find in this cuvée. Full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, and seamless, with sweet tannin and a stacked mid-palate, it has an almost Hermitage-like liquid rock character, shocking elegance and purity, and a huge finish. This is Cornas at its finest – hats off to the Clape family! It's relatively accessible now, yet I suspect it will close down with a few years of bottle age. " (01/2018)
Starting Bid: $340.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2014 Delas Frères "Francois de Tournon" St-Joseph (91RP, 91VN, 91WS). Vinous: "Deep ruby. Bright and energetic on the nose, displaying fresh dark berry and cherry scents and a hint of violet. Expansive bitter cherry and cassis flavors show good depth and become sweeter with aeration. A peppery note adds bite to the long, focused, gently tannic finish, which strongly echoes the floral note. (JR)" (04/2017)
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2003 E. Guigal "Ex-Voto" Hermitage Blanc (96RP, 96ST, 96VN, 96WS). Vinous: "Medium gold. Incredibly complex bouquet of yellow plum, dried apricot, peach, floral honey, yellow Chartreuse, blonde tobacco and anise (among other things). Deeply concentrated and almost surreal in its expression of honeyed, ripe and dried fruits; its sappy, clinging texture; and its powerful impression of extract. The endless finish is surprisingly bright, with no tiring or cloying qualities. This should be served in homeopathic doses, such is its intensity and depth of flavor. (JR)" (01/2007)
Starting Bid: $250.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2010 Xavier Vignon "Cuvée Anonyme" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (95RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The powerful, rich 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Anonyme reveals an off-the-chart level of extract, lots of glycerin (nearly 16% natural alcohol) and copious black cherry, blueberry, forest floor, lavender and graphite characteristics. This full-throttle red requires 3-4 years of cellaring and should keep for two decades.Xavier Vignon, along with Philippe Cambie, are probably the two most highly renowned oenologists in Chateauneuf du Pape as well as some of the surrounding Cotes du Rhone regions. Vignon’s office and laboratory are next to the Auto Route A7, in the same complex as Chateau Husson. (RP) 95+" (10/2012)
Starting Bid: $160.00

Bid on this 4-bottle tasting lot; including 2-bottles of 2011 Château des Tours Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge (91VN), 1-bottle of 2014 Château des Tours Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge, and 1-bottle of 2015 Château des Tours Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge. Of the 2011 Château des Tours Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge, Vinous writes: "Light, bright red. Complex aromas of fresh red berries, candied flowers and five-spice powder, joined by a subtle hint of garrigue. Juicy and precise, offering appealingly sweet raspberry and cherry flavors that tighten up slowly in the middle. Delivers a pretty serious punch of red fruit flavors but comes off lithe, finishing with very good energy and silky tannins that build slowly. (JR)" (06/2016)
Starting Bid: $205.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2015 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (97JS, 97WS, 96JD, 96RP, 95DC, (93-95VN)). James Suckling: "All 13 grapes. This has a dark fruited, blueberry and blue plum nose with wide swinging tannins. Some white peppery elements, violets, brooding dark spices, blue fruits and dark plums. Builds from the ground up. Dark stones. Impressive, powerful wine. *Top 100 Wines of 2017*" (01/2018)

Bid on this bottle of 2012 M. Chapoutier "Les Greffieux" Ermitage (97RP, 95WS, 94VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A wine I've been lucky enough to have multiple times recently, the 2012 Ermitage les Greffieux is a full-bodied, deeply fruited, concentrated and blockbuster effort that's stays elegant, polished and balanced. Exhibiting incredible amounts of bloody meat, olive tapenade, campfire and sweet, expansive fruit, it needs 4-5 years in the cellar, and will drink nicely through 2034. (JD)" (12/2014)
Starting Bid: $80.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2007 Pierre Usseglio "Cuvée de Mon Aïeul" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (100RP, 94ST, 94WS). 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)
Starting Bid: $240.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2003 E. Guigal "Ex-Voto" Hermitage Rouge (100RP, (96-97ST), 97WS, 94WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another perfect wine is the 2003 Hermitage Ex Voto and it's the most over-the-top, decadent and hedonistic Ex Voto ever produced. From Les Bessards, l'Hermite, Greffieux and les Murets and aged 4 years in 100% new French oak, it offers off-the-charts concentration and texture as well as layers of creme de cassis, smoke meats, licorice, spice-box and spring flowers. Voluptuous, sweetly fruited and yet, like all great wines, still lively, fresh and graceful. It will have half a century or more of life. (JD)" (09/2015)

Bid on this bottle of 2012 M. Chapoutier "L'Ermite" Ermitage Blanc (100RP, 98WS, 95V). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "White wine simply doesn't get any better than the 2012 Ermitage l'Ermite Blanc. A massive, concentrated, yet insanely pure and focused effort, it has an incredible bouquet (almond paste, orange rind, caramelized peach), full-bodied richness, no hard edges and finish that just won't quit. Of all the 2012 whites, this has the most minerality, purity and precision. I'd happily drink it anytime over the coming 3-4 decades. (JD)" (12/2014)
Starting Bid: $170.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2016 Coudoulet de Beaucastel Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge (94JS, 92DC, 92JD, 92RP). James Suckling: "This has a very plush, luscious and generously fleshy feel. Cherry compote, raspberries, blackberries and plums. Tarry elements, too. Smooth, velvety, pure and even. Succulence, elegance and clarity. Such value here. Drink or hold." (08/2018)
Starting Bid: $134.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Auguste Clape Cornas (99RP, 97WS, 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I can’t say the same thing about the 2010 Cornas, as it’s crazily backwards, concentrated and structured, and needs some bottle age to round into form. Nevertheless, the incredible quality is present in its purity, focus, full-bodied richness and awesome finish. Give it another 3-4 years and enjoy it over the following 15-20 years (if not more). (JD) 99+" (08/2014)
Starting Bid: $579.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2003 Domaine des Remizières "L'Essentiel" Hermitage (98RP, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Only 3, 000 bottles of the 2003 Hermitage l’Essentiel were produced from the most concentrated, port-like, atypical, but extraordinary barrels. A remarkable black/purple color to the rim is accompanied by a wine of tremendous unctuosity, surprising minerality and definition, prodigious concentration and glycerin, and high alcohol (15.6%) for Hermitage. Representing the essence of wine, it should drink well in 3-4 years, and last for three decades or more. Once all the baby fat falls away, it should be regarded as classic, although nothing like this has ever emerged from Hermitage in any vigneron’s lifetime. (RP)" (02/2006)
Starting Bid: $200.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Thierry-Allemand "Chaillot" Cornas (94WS, 93VN). Wine Spectator: "A really dark, grippy style, with boysenberry and macerated currant fruit laced with pastis, violet and iron notes. The long, structured finish is pushed by a bright iron note and superfresh acidity. Hard to resist now, but will only blossom more with time. Best from 2010 through 2022. (JM)" (02/2009)
Starting Bid: $667.23

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Auguste Clape Cornas (96WS, 93ST, 91RP). Wine Spectator: "This is the Rock of Gibraltar vintage. A brick house of a wine, with a tremendous core of racy red currant and black cherry fruit that's locked behind a wall of dense but sleek tannins. Still very taut, but so pure and racy, with the minerality blazing through the finish. Wait, wait, wait. (JM, Web-2010)"
Starting Bid: $381.01

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (96JD, 95ST, 94WS, 92RP). Jeb Dunnuck: "After tasting the 2005 Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée two separate times from varying casks and barrels at the domaine, this was my first taste from bottle and I certainly wasn't disappointed. Surprisingly, this doesn't possess the same meaty and burly Pegau aromas but showed a pure, clean and precise character. Bright raspberry, cherry and mineral aromas shows up at first but with air, more earthy, peppery and tar laced aromas show up. The palate is awesome with beautiful balance, tension and texture that lead into a long, tannic finish. It wasn't until the last sip that this showed more of the subtle meat and leather aromas that I'm use to getting from these wines. Outstanding. " (03/2008)
Starting Bid: $260.00

Bid on this bottle of 2003 Paul Jaboulet Aîné "La Chapelle" Hermitage (96JD, 96RP, 94JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Hermitage la Chapelle is a stunner! From a scorching-hot year that may never be repeated, this behemoth took two months to ferment dry and hit 14.1% natural alcohol. In addition, while in a big year they can produce 80, 000 to 90, 000 bottles (or more in the case of the 2000), they only made 50, 000 bottles of the '03. Locked and loaded with notions of plums, Asian spice, olive tapenade and sweet cassis, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a massive mid-palate and layers of sweet tannin. This blockbuster is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and will drink beautifully for another 15-20 years. (JD)" (09/2015)
Starting Bid: $135.00

Bid on this bottle of 2010 Thierry Allemand "Chaillot" Cornas ((95-96VN), 95RP). Vinous: "Opaque ruby. Heady, smoke- and spice-accented aromas of dark berries, potpourri and minerals. Sappy, penetrating and pure, offering expansive black raspberry and boysenberry flavors that are lifted and sharpened by juicy acidity. Shows superb clarity and power on the finish, which is firmed by fine-grained, harmonious tannins. The balance here is remarkable. (JR)" (03/2013)
Starting Bid: $311.23

Bid on this bottle of 2016 E. Guigal "Lieu Dit" Saint-Joseph Blanc ((93-95JD), 94RP, 93DC). Jeb Dunnuck: "A bigger, richer wine, the 2016 Saint Joseph Lieu Dit Saint Joseph Blanc is still in barrel, but it certainly shows lots of potential. Caramelized peach, flower oil, tropical fruits and hints of oak all emerge from this full-bodied, rich, concentrated beauty that stays focused and crisp on the palate." (01/2018)
Starting Bid: $43.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2004 M. Chapoutier "L'Ermite" Ermitage Blanc (100RP, 97ST, 97WS, 95WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A compelling, profoundly great wine is the 2004 Ermitage l’Ermite blanc. This is extremely limited in availability, but the light gold color offers up a liqueur of pears, wet rocks, and honey. Citrus oil, viscosity, extraordinary richness, and acidity make this wine (like all of these Ermitages, made from 100% old-vine Marsanne) just exquisite. There is nothing like these wines anywhere in the world, and the fact that the single vineyard Ermitages are aged in 100% new oak, yet show no trace of oak whatsoever is mind-boggling. This is exquisite wine that you either drink in its first 3-4 years or forget for two decades. (RP)" (04/2007)
Starting Bid: $470.00

Bid on this bottle of 2005 M. Chapoutier "L'Ermite" Ermitage Rouge (99RP, 98WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Lastly, from the very dome of the granite hill of Ermitage is the 2005 Ermitage l’Ermite. An extraordinarily powerful wine that probably needs 10-15 years in the bottle (last year I thought 20 was probably conservative), this is a 100-year wine and probably best appreciated by our descendants rather than anyone currently over the age of 30. Dense purple to the rim, with notes of crushed rock, charcoal, roasted meats, and enormous quantities of blue and black fruits, this wine is almost painfully rich and thick, with mouthsearing levels of tannin and zesty acidity. Monumental! (RP) 99+" (02/2008)
Starting Bid: $170.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 E. Guigal "La Doriane" Condrieu (94RP, 93VN, 93W&S, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The brilliant 2005 Condrieu La Doriane (aged in 100% new oak) boasts a classic Condrieu nose of buttered almonds, marzipan, lychee nuts, white peaches, and tropical fruits presented in a full-bodied, unctuous format with excellent acidity, depth, and earthiness. (RP)" (02/2008)
Starting Bid: $140.00

Bid on this 12-bottle lot of 2013 Michel Gassier "Le Fervent" Costières-de-Nîmes .
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this bottle of 2013 Auguste Clape "Renaissance" Cornas ((91-93RP), (91-92VN)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pierre-Marie also excelled in 2013, and his Cornas Renaissance offers fleshy, ripe, full-bodied notes of powdered rock, cassis, black raspberry and ground herbs. With time in the glass, it becomes dominated by its mineral-component and it gains mid-palate depth and richness. It will drink reasonably well on release, but have 15 years or more of overall longevity. (JD)" (12/2014)
Starting Bid: $77.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2006 Clos du Mont Olivet Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
Starting Bid: $50.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (96RP, 95WS, 94W&S, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "What I think might end up being the best Beaucastel since the 1990 or 2001, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape offers a full-bodied, decadent style to go with awesome black and blue fruits, garrigue, licorice, crushed flowers and violets. The purity here is truly something, and it has fabulous mid-palate concentration, building tannin and massive texture. (JD)" (10/2014)
Starting Bid: $234.00

Bid on this bottle of 2014 Auguste Clape Cornas (95WS, 94VN, 93RP). Wine Spectator: "Solidly packed, with a bramble-edged core of dark plum, bitter cherry and black currant fruit, inlaid with bay leaf and savory notes. The serious chalky grip through the finish will need some time to stretch out. Shows terrific interplay between the grip and fruit. (JM)" (03/2017)
Starting Bid: $131.02

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2006 Delas "La Landonne" Côte-Rôtie (95RP, 93ST, 93WS). 95 points Robert Parker: "The compelling 2006 Côte-Rôtie La Landonne is sensational. Gamy black cherry and black currant fruit interwoven with notions of graphite, licorice, and scorched earth aromas jump from the glass of this dense, full-bodied, rich, pure 2006. This is a stunning wine with terrific minerality as well as laser-like focus. It, too, will benefit from 3-4 years of cellaring, and should last for two decades." (04/09) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ruby-red. Deep cassis and kirsch aromas are complicated by smoked meat, dark chocolate, roasted coffee and violet. A bright note of black pepper emerges with air and carries onto the palate, adding vivacity to the deep dark fruit and bitter chocolate flavors. Finishes strong, with bright mineral tang and a hint of blood orange." (Jan/Feb 2009)
Starting Bid: $150.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2004 E. Guigal "La Mouline" Côte-Rôtie (95RP, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More open and evolved, yet still a textbook and perfumed example of the cuvee, the 2004 Cote Rotie la Mouline possesses beautiful spice, potpourri, pepper and cured meats to go with plenty of red and black fruit, medium to full-bodied richness and an overall beautifully balanced feel. Drinking nicely now, it has another 10 to 15 years of evolution. (JD)" (08/2014)
Starting Bid: $526.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Thierry Allemand "Reynard" Cornas (96WS, 95VN). Wine Spectator: "Densely packed, with tar, olive and maduro tobacco notes up front, holding the massive core of braised fig, plum sauce and tar at bay for now. The muscular finish shows flashes of iron, garrigue and graphite. (JM)" (02/2009)
Starting Bid: $850.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2004 E. Guigal "La Landonne" Côte-Rôtie (95VN, 95WS, 94RP). Vinous: "Inky purple. Intensely perfumed, sexy aromas of Asian spices, cherry-cola, violet, yellow rose and black tea. Fresh cherry and dark berry flavors envelop the palate, with zesty minerality providing added lift. Gains sweetness with air, picking up bitter chocolate and candied floral character. Finishes broad, sweet and seemingly endless, with the cola and spice notes repeating. (JR)" (01/2009)
Starting Bid: $420.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2004 Pierre Usseglio "Cuvée de Mon Aïeul" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (95RP, 94JD, 94WS, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There was no Reserve des Deux Frères made in 2004, so the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul received all of the top grapes. Still youthful and lively, with less density and depth than the '03, it offers classic notes of garrigue, mushrooms, olives, dried spice, kirsch and blackberry. Full-bodied and concentrated, especially in the vintage, it has plenty of sweet fruit, fine tannin and a great finish. There's a lot of similarities here to the '99, and I expect it will evolve similarly. (JD)" (09/2015)

Bid on this bottle of 2012 M. Chapoutier "La Mordorée" Côte-Rôtie (97RP, 96 WS, 94VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "While I loved Michel's 2012 Cote Rotie la Mordoree from barrel, it blew me away from bottle, and I think bares more than a passing resemblance to his 1991. About as elegant and seamless as they come, it exhibits incredible notes of violets, peppery spice, spring flowers, rose petal and darker berry fruit. This is followed by a full-bodied, sweetly fruited, expansive Cote Rotie that's perfectly balanced, has beautiful mid-palate density, and ultra-fine tannin that emerge on the finish. It's a blockbuster effort to drink over the coming two decades. (JD)" (12/2014)
