98 points Decanter: "Very full-bodied with a lovely sweetness to the fruit, fine tannins and great freshness. Really shot through with juicy, sweet, chocolatey tannins and great concentration. Very well balanced however, not heavy or aggressive with a stony minerality on the finish. The most impressive barrel sample of Vieux Donjon I've ever tasted, this is profound stuff. This traditional estate owns 18ha of Châteauneuf, with considerable plantings of old-vine Grenache. Fermented in concrete vats, then aged in concrete and old foudres. (MW)" (10/2020) ...

93 points Wine Spectator: "Bright, with cherry, damson plum and raspberry coulis flavors streaming through, flanked by floral and rooibos tea hints and carrying through a racy, sanguine-tinged finish that is sneakily long. Well done. Best from 2020 through 2035. (JM)" (11/2019) K&L Notes: One of our most popular direct imports, the price-to-quality ratio we've found in these wines year after year is simply unbeatable. Our customers have come to rely on this family-run winery to provide great quality, drinkability and value. The 2014 was the first vint...

98 points Decanter: "Bright and floral on the nose. The tannins are extremely fine, almost imperceptible, but very much present, giving the wine a strong base for long ageing. It's perfectly balanced, long and deep, resulting in a rich but surprisingly classic vintage of Clos des Papes considering the extreme conditions this year. Rich but bright, very complete and pure with no excesses. Vines are typically 30 to 40 years old, spread across 24 parcels. Matured for 12 months in foudres of at least four years of age.

96-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The only 2019 presented, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape La Reine Des Bois checks in 80% Grenache and the rest Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Vaccarèse that was brought up 20% in old barrels and 80% in tank. This inky hued 2019 boasts a beautiful nose of ripe dark fruits, smoked earth, licorice, and garrigue. With wonderful purity (which is a hallmark of the vintage), full-bodied richness, and a decadent, opulent texture, this is thrilling stuff all the way. It’s going to flirt with perfection and evolve for two decades or more." (10/2020)...

96 points Decanter: "There is more Mourvèdre here than an average year as the Grenache was hit relatively hard and it shows in the aromatic profile comprising damson, plum skin, mashed blueberry and liquorice. There's also a floral element and a little cinnamon kick on the finish. The tannins are silky, and the balance of acidity is good. It bears a certain resemblance to the 2015 but a little darker in style, concentrated and ripe, more mulled and more butch in style than a classic year. Just 30,000 bottles made from a yield of 9hl/ha - their smallest e...

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Traces of cacao powder and cinnamon lend spice to dried strawberry and blueberry on the nose of this richly textured blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Terret Noir and Muscardin. It’s an opulent but fresh-fruited wine accented by a crisp mineral lift on the midpalate. Soft, smooth tannins accompany a long finish. Drinks well in youth but should maintain through 2030. (AI)" (02/2021) 92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the reds, the deeply colored 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape offers a rocking bouquet of blueberries, b...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A non-vintage blend of Xavier’s favorite vintage, the NV Châteauneuf du Pape X XII XV is a massive, thick, unctuous beauty that’s almost overflowing with notes of dark fruits, blackberries, truffle, chocolate and crushed rock. You almost need a fork to drink this baby, but man, what a wine! It stays lively and fresh, with building tannin, a stacked mid-palate and a big finish. It will take 5-7 years for the baby fat to fall away, and it will have two decades of longevity. (JD) 95+" (10/2016) K&L Notes: Xavier V...

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Deep ruby-colored and offering a heavenly bouquet of black raspberries, toasted spiced, cured meats, licorice, and cured meats, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Combes des Fous is awesome on the palate, with a silky, seamless profile that just keeps on going. Possessing ultra-fine tannin, no hard edges, and a huge finish, it’s a phenomenal bottle of wine. The fact that it was bottled just one month ago makes this showing even more impressive."

Ripe, powerful blue fruits, violets, plums, and incense notes all flow to a medium to full-bodied, concentrated 2017 that brings the power yet stays pure, balanced, and focused. It’s a beautiful wine. If you’re oak adverse, give bottles 4-5 years. It should be long-lived."

2017 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Top Pick!
95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Lastly, and tasted from bottle, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Réservée showed brilliantly, with the beautiful, Provençal character of the vintage as well as classic Pegau notes of red and black currants, smoked herbs, cured meats, new leather, and ground pepper all front and center. More in the style of the 1999 or 2005 than say the 2007 or 2009, it’s medium to full-bodied, has beautiful concentration, ample structure and tannins, and a focused, backward mouthfeel that’s going to benefit from bottle age."

2015 Domaine du Pegau "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Top Pick!
96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Châteauneuf-Du-Pape Cuvée Réservée is a beautiful, classic wine from the Feraud family that offers powerful notes of blackcurrants, peppered meat, garrigue, and that classic Pégau spice that's hard to find outside of this iconic estate. Possessing a deep ruby/plum color, beautiful complexity, full-bodied richness, and firm tannin, it has closed up slightly since I tasted it from barrel and is going to need 6-12 months of bottle age to bounce back, but this is a concentrated, powerful vintage for this estate that reminds m...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The more modern-styled 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Gaston Philippe gives up more cassis, smoky oak, graphite, and charred earth aromas and flavors. More spice and floral notes develop with time in the glass, it's full-bodied, powerful, and concentrated, with sweet tannin and a great finish. It's not for traditionalists out there but is a brilliant wine that's going to keep for two decades. 95+" (08/2018) 95 points Vinous: "Displays an array of intense black and blue fruit, floral and exotic spice qualities on the deeply perfumed no...

2018 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Top Pick!
95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A rich, mouthfilling effort, Vieux Donjon's 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape is concentrated and velvety, showing plenty of power and weight. Ripe cherries and raspberries are dusted with clove and star anise, then joined by hints of leather and cocoa on the long, intense finish. This is a beautiful Vieux Donjon that should drink well for more than a decade. The single cuvées of red and white Châteauneuf du Pape produced at this estate continue to impress, with the 2018 red coming across as particularly concentrated wit...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This bottle of the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Chante le Merle Vieilles Vignes was singing at full and amazingly youthful voice this June. Black cherry fruit dominated the nose of this big, rich, tannic beast, which still has years ahead of it. Full-bodied and velvety, with a long, concentrated finish, I could see it aging through 2030. Nicolas Boiron, who runs his family's estate, is a huge man with an equal-sized personality. Quick to laugh and joke, he's a pleasure to spend time with in the cellar, even if his s...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Leading off the three Châteauneuf Du Papes, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Trois Sources comes from more sandy soils just across the road from the estate. It always shares more stylistic similarities with the Réserve and is more opulent, sexy, and fruit loaded compared to the Hauts-Lieux cuvée. This 2017 is spectacular, offering loads of black fruits, black licorice, ground herbs, violets, and some obvious loamy soil and mineral-like aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, expansive, and multi-dimensional, this is another singular wine...
Price: $79.99

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Hints of violets and lavender appear alongside mixed berries on the nose of the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Prestige. While not overwhelmingly concentrated or dense, it's beautifully balanced, being medium to full-bodied on the palate, smooth and supple in feel and fresh on the cooling and silky finish, where it adds hints of mocha and darker fruit while retaining a sense of etherealness. It should drink well for a decade, perhaps a bit longer. This benchmark estate continues to tick right along under the stewardsh...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Usseglio’s consider the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul to be their greatest to date. I’ve done numerous tastings with the 2010 and 2007 side by side, and more times than not, I think the 2007 is the better wine. Time will tell though, and both are sensational wines that readers should have in their cellars. The inky colored 2010 is 100% Grenache fermented with 30% stems and aged in a combination of older barrels and foudre. More focused and precise than the '07 (and even darker in color), yet sti...

2017 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "Piedlong" Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Top Pick!
94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "From the plateau of Piedlong and a blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Mourvèdre that was only 50% destemmed, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Piedlong offers a sexy bouquet of ripe strawberries, herbes de Provence, licorice, and garrigue that has plenty of sweet fruit and charm. Showing lots of minerality on the palate, medium to full-bodied, a rounded, layered texture, and a great finish, drink it over the coming 15 years or more. In the Brunier family since 1898, Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe lies on the eastern edge of Châteauneuf du Pap...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The flagship is the Grenache-dominated 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Imperiale, which comes from vines planted in 1902 and was destemmed and aged in concrete tanks. Awesome notes of blackberries, blueberries, crushed rocks, violets, and graphite all emerge from this tight, full-bodied, concentrated and backward Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Possessing incredible purity of fruit, a concentrated yet fresh, structured profile, and a huge finish, it just needs time to shine. 97+" (08/2018) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Almost en...

Clos des Papes "Le Petit Vin d'Avril" Red Blend Vin de France
Top Pick!
This is the 2019 blend. This wine is producer by the owner of Clos des Papes Vincent Avril. It is sourced from vines near the Rhone River and is a bistro-style red that is a kitchen sink blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Mourvedre, Carignan & Cinsault. It is aged 1/3 iun barrel and is a blend of 2/3 current vintage(2019) and 1/3 the previous vintage which is why this is a non-vintage wine. A wonderful, fun and easy-drinking red this is a great value and definitely displays the Clos des Papes lineage.

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Even better (as well as a perfect wine), the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Collection Charles Giraud checks in as a nominal blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre that was brought up in demi-muids. It reveals a deep purple color as well as heavenly notes of blackberry and currant fruits intermixed with loads of cured meats, spice box, Asian spices, and a distinct loamy soil and minerality. Always more structured and powerful than the Reserve Auguste Favier release (no doubt due to the Mourvèdre component), it hits the palate with ful...

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I loved the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape, and I’d certainly be happy with a case in the cellar. Offering a pure, elegant, incredibly Grenache-driven profile of sweet black raspberries, incense, violets, and garrigue, it’s medium to full-bodied, ethereal, and elegant on the palate. It’s already hard to resist yet will keep for 10-15 years.

96-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Lastly, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes is more classic, with a fresh, vibrant, full-bodied style that carries seriously dense black and blue fruits, graphite, scorched earth, and peppery garrigue like aromas and flavors. Rich, powerful, and with plenty of structure, it’s going to need bottle age but is certainly a tremendous wine in the making. The blend is 45% each of Grenache and Mourvèdre, with 10% Syrah, that was vinified in stainless steel and aged in 55% new barrels and the balance in concrete tanks." (10/20...

Displays fine delineation and finishes with superb clarity and emphatic, red-fruit-driven persistence. Raised for 17 months in large oak foudres.

96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape La Reserve is actually just under 50% Grenache. With the rampant mildew this vintage, Mourvèdre accounts for the majority of this wine, which is normally a 60-40 blend favoring Grenache. Despite that, it remains dominated by red fruit. Raspberries and cherries are accented by hints of tree bark and cedar (it's aged in demi-muids, 20% of which are new) on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is silky and lush, rich yet airy.
