2019 Château Gigognan Côtes-du-Rhône
Top Pick!
90 points Wine Enthusiast: "In this wine, luscious blackberry and plum flavors are juxtaposed by notes of iron and crushed earth. A Grenache-dominant blend accented with Mourvèdre, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan, it's a forward, penetrating wine with lingering nuances of fur and earth. Framed by fine-grained, persistent tannins and briskly balanced, it's at peak now through 2025.

2019 Xavier Vignon Lirac
Top Pick!
92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An 80-20 blend of Grenache and Syrah, Vignon's 2019 Lirac is drawn from multiple parcels with galets roulés over clay soils. Roughly one-third went into oak, while the rest stayed in tank. It may be the most complex of the various Vignon "Signature" offerings, marrying hints of garrigue and licorice with mixed berries and hints of oak. It's medium to full-bodied, silky and forward, with the same lip-smacking drinkability factor that marks all of Vignon's wines on the finish. (JC)" (09/2020)

Top Pick!
93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Randall Grahm's annual Rhône ode delivers authenticity, beginning with tarry aromas of singed meat, dried red plums, crushed rocks, charred wood and a hint of blood. The blend of 57% Grenache, 17% Cinsault, 16% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah is visceral on the palate with its bloody and dried meat flavors, yet with snappy red fruit that stays vibrant into the rusty finish. (MK)" (07/2021) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Precise and appealingly Old World in style, offering smoky raspberry, spice box and black olive flavors and a hint of ...

90 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Bottled in April, the 2020 Côtes Du Roussillon Villages Bila Haut (55% Syrah and 45% Grenache) offers lots of jammy black and blue fruits as well as peppery herbs. It’s ripe, medium to full-bodied, and opulent while still holding onto a terrific sense of purity." (01/2022)
Price: $11.99

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrahs, and 10% Mourvèdre brought up in tank (the Grenache wasn’t destemmed), the 2017 Gigondas offers a classic bouquet of dark fruits (black cherries, blackberries) spring flowers and sappy garrigue, with a fresh, vibrant style aromatically. These gives way to a medium-bodied, elegant Gigondas that has fine tannins, good acidity, and the class to evolve for over a decade. It’s well worth seeking out!

The palate is intense and richer than usual for this bottling, offering dark berry, black pepper and charcuterie on the finish, as smooth tannins provide just enough bite. (MK)" (07/2021)

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The base 2020 Ventoux has a beautiful, exotic nose of wild raspberries, strawberries, candied violets, and peppery garrigue.

93-94 points James Suckling: "This is very chewy with lots of rich fruit, yet it’s framed by ripe tannins. Solid red." (05/2020) K&L Notes: Following in the footsteps of some of France's greatest cooperatives, Rhonea reestablished itself about a decade ago when the Cave de Vacqueyras and Cave de Beaumes des Venise merged. Though there are some 400 growers in their stable, they make appellation wines that are easily accessible and well represent their respective regions. It's the wines that focus on the single terroirs and domaine bottlings that are ...

This has guts and range. Drink now through 2023. (JM)" (12/2021) K&L Notes: It's unusual to see 100% Syrah coming out of the southern Rhône but this has become one of the signature wines of the prestigious Gigondas producer Château de Saint Cosme.

94 points Wine & Spirits: "Les Crus Faugères is the only cooperative in this appellation, managing 2,223 acres or nearly half of Faugères’ vines. It puts out a vast array of labels, including Mas Olivier, also recommended here, but Baron Ermengaud was the standout for both its 2019 and 2018 reds. Mostly syrah (80 percent), with grenache, carignan and mourvèdre, all of it hand-harvested off schist parcels, the 2019 shines in its combination of earthiness and brightness. Lively acidity and herbal notes give it a just-picked freshness that energizes the red...

Medium to full-bodied, ripe, and incredibly sexy, it offers Provençal notes of blueberries, leather, peppery herbs, and violets. With spot-on purity and good balance, it displays a classic, pleasure-bent style that will be a great drink over the coming 7-8 years." (01/2022) Jancis Robinson: "Tasted blind.
