2012 Domaine la Garrigue "La Cantarelle" Vacqueyras Top Pick!
2012 Domaine la Garrigue "La Cantarelle" Vacqueyras

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The most impressive of the trio, the 2012 Vacqueyras La Cantarelle is an incredible blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah that spent 24 months all in concrete tanks. It too is a custom cuvee between Eric Solomon, Philippe Cambie and the Bernard family. Named after a house that’s located in the vineyard, it comes from 100+-year-old vines and primarily limestone soils, and there’s a scant 600 cases to go around. Inky purple in color, it gives up meaty aromas and flavors of olive tapenade, cassis, melted licorice and earth to go with a very full-bodied, volup ...Read More »

2013 Cave de Rasteau "Dame Victoria" Rasteau

An award winner at many French wine competitions, the Dame Victoria is an impressive Rhône red raised not far from the fabled vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Warmly fruited and full of robust, rustic character, the nose offers minerality and blue fruit notes, which are echoed on the palate and joined with berries, berries and more berries. Elegant on the supple finish, this is just the red to pair with chicken, burgers, roasts and cheesy vegetarian dishes.

(9/2014) K&L Notes: Courtois is a property acquired by the Jaume family in 2003. The winery itself had fallen into disrepair but the vineyards were in remarkable condition. What distinguishes Vinsobres is its elevation, with vineyards sitting at 350 to 450 meters, and the latitude being the northernmost of the Côtes du Rhône crus.

Tavel is an appellation of the southern Rhone valley, unique in its specialization in dry rosé wines. The vineyards that produce the appellation's wines are located around the town of Tavel, just southwest of Orange and northwest of Avignon. The soils here are mostly stony and sandy and boast excellent drainage qualities, which force the vines to dig deep, strong root systems in search of water and nutriment. There are areas of limestone which generate the lighter, more-delicate element of the otherwise robust rosés, and patches of red, iron-rich soils ... 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. One of the ...Read More »

2007 Château des Tours Vacqueyras

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Perhaps the finest Vacqueyras Des Tours has produced since the 1989 and 1990 is the 2007. This powerhouse boasts stunning levels of kirsch, garrigue, pepper and framboise, a big, full-bodied mouthfeel and super freshness, purity and overall equilibrium. It will benefit from another several years of bottle age ... At his home estate, Emmanuel Reynaud (who has been producing the Rayas wines since 1997) has nearly 100 acres of vineyards from which he makes a wonderful array of value-priced reds and whites.

2013 Château de Beaucastel "Vieilles Vignes" Roussanne Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Similar in color to the classic white, the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Roussanne Vieilles Vignes is deeper and richer, with more viscosity, glycerin and minerality. Loaded with notes of buttered citrus, flowers, orange marmalade and crushed-rock nuances, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied power, juicy, lively acidity and terrific length. Like the classic white, this does not go through malolactic fermentation, but sees slightly more oak (some new) in its élevage, which always gives it slightly more richness, as well as hints of vanilla in its yout ...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 »

2011 Xavier Vins "Cuvée Anonyme" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The top wine of the estate, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Anonyme is a hidden gem in the vintage! A blend of Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah, Counoise and Vaccarese, from 90-year-old vines and aged in one-third new barrels (although you wouldn’t know it), it possesses fabulous notes of blackberry and currant fruit, big minerality, roasted meats and leather. Full-bodied, with beautiful freshness, big tannin and a layered, thrillingly concentrated mid-palate ... (JD)" (10/2013)

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. Over the next decades, they... Read More »

2012 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Top Pick!
2012 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of my favorite wines, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Réservée is a classic. Beautiful on the nose, with notions of ground pepper, wild herbs, minerality and smoked plum and dark fruit, it’s medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and has plenty of tannin that comes through on the finish. Similar in style to a lighter-weight 2010, drink this beauty anytime over the coming 12-15 years. (JD)" (10/2014)93 points Antonio Galloni: "Opaque ruby. Heady aromas of black and blue fruits, potpourri and Indian spices, with a smoky element emerging with air. Taut and sharply focused on ...Read More »

1998 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "A big, rich wine with huge amounts of fruit oozing out of the glass. Great concentration and intensity, with licorice flavors from the Mourvèdre, finishing with chewy tannins. A great year for this wine, which should age well for 15 to 20 years." (12/2001)95 points Wine Spectator: "Very youthful, with a juicy blast of red plum and fig fruit flavors on a racy frame, this also has plenty of spice, tar, plum cake and mineral in reserve, as the finish shows more structure and slowly darkens with time in the glass. Only just starting to hit its stride.--1998 Châteauneuf-du-Pape retrospe ...Read More »
