94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fairly exuberant in style for this famous bottling, yet with that rocky frame intact, this vintage's blend of 35% Grenache, 34% Mourvèdre, 17% Cinsaut and 14% Syrah hits the nose with aromas of baked blackberry, toasty Dr Pepper spice and dried meat. The palate is tense with leathery tannins, offering cranberry, dried cherry, hibiscus and black-tea flavors. *Editors' Choice* (MK)"

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Deus-Ex Machina (60/40 Grenache and Mourvèdre) shows more classic Mourvèdre notes, with blackcurrants, Asian spices, crushed violets, cured meats, and graphite all giving way to a power packed, opulent, hedonistic 2017 that does everything right. Incredible depth of fruit, building tannins, no hard edges, and a finish to die for are all part of the package." (08/2019) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "With its more discreet oak and layers of complexity, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Deus Ex Ma...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another magical wine from this estate is the 2019 Côte à Côte, a blend of 34% each of Grenache and Mourvèdre, with the balance Syrah. Brought up in 29% new French oak, it boasts a dense purple color as well as incredible aromatics of blue fruits, smoked game, violets, black pepper, and spring flowers. One of those incredibly complex, nuanced wines that still brings depth and richness on the palate, it’s perfectly balanced, has ultra-fine tannins, and a gorgeous finish. It’s the finest vintage of Côte à Côte ever produced. Drink i...

97 points Decanter: "According to François Perrin this was the perfect year, with rain at the perfect time and an Indian summer in September. This is so graceful, with blackberry aromas and black olive notes. It’s fleshy and expressive, with no lack of grip and tension. The fruit profile on the palate mirrors that on the nose. This masterpiece is vivid and harmonious with a chalky acidity and remarkable length. One to forget in the cellar for at least two decades. (CG)" (11/2017) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "The 2010 Beaucastel is a tour de force, brill...

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The full-bodied 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is a blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault. While not quite as good as the stellar 2015, it boasts silky tannins, plenty of cherry fruit and a dusting of ground pepper and allspice on the long finish. (JC)" (08/2018) 91 points Vinous: "Bright violet. Ripe cherry and raspberry on the deeply perfumed nose, lifted by suggestions of pungent flowers and cracked pepper. Nicely concentrated but lively as well, offering sappy red berry, candied cherry a...

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 ...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Including slightly more Mourvèdre and from a cooler, higher elevation terroir, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Hauts-Lieux has more cassis, game, peppery herbs, and olive notes, as well as the classic violets and black licorice nuances that always seem to be present in the wines from this estate. *2020 Wine of the Year*" (10/2020) 95 points Vinous: "Cherry, blackberry, pungent flowers, allspice and garrigue on the assertively perfumed nose. Sappy and broad on entry, offering appealingly sweet red and dark berry flavors that tig...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Black cherries, blackberries and garrigue all appear on the nose of the dense, concentrated 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes. Yes, the wine boasts some formidable tannins, but they're ripe, and the fruit is vibrant and intense, with all of the ingredients for cellaring up to two decades. With time, it might even approach the performance of the 2009 (99 points) or 2010 (100). (JC)" (05/2022) 98 points Wine Enthusiast: "In contrast to Janasse's varietal Châteauneuf-du-Pape bottlings, this expression of ol...

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Imperiale is undeniably one of the big successes in the vintage. A blend of 95% Grenache and 5% other permitted varieties, partially destemmed and aged all in concrete, its deep ruby color is followed by awesome notes of blackberry jam, crushed rocks, graphite, and garrigue. A big, rich, unctuous wine, it has beautiful purity, integrated acidity, building tannin, and a great, great finish. I wouldn’t touch bottles for another 4-5 years, but it’s a tour de force in Grenache I wish every reader could tas...

2009 Domaine de la Janasse "Chaupin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Back In Stock!
97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Showing spectacularly well and a brilliant vintage for this cuvée, the 2009 Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Chaupin is a textbook Grenache that has an almost cool climate feel in its fresh, delineated aromas of black cherry, raspberry, licorice, mineral, and freshly snipped flowers. While a small portion of the blend is aged in new demi-muids (30% and in ¼ new barrique), you would not know it by tasting it as the wine presents a beautifully pure, classic profile on both the nose and palate. Full-bodied and concentr...

2015 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Back In Stock!
98 points Wine Spectator: "This offers a drop-dead gorgeous core of cassis and raspberry pâte de fruit flavors that hold center stage but still allow notes of Lapsang souchong tea, anise, incense and shiso leaf to chime in. Very long, with a sublime feel through the mineral-tinged finish. So seductive already, but this should cruise in the cellar. *Collectible, Ranked #14 in Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2017* (JM)" (11/2017) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bottled in May, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is a floral, elegant, unbelievably complex wi...

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A wine that might rival the 2001 when all is said and done, the 2010 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée de La Reine des Bois is an incredible effort that does everything right. Possessing a voluptuous, decadent and super-rich profile, it stays graceful and perfectly balanced, with beautiful freshness, a stacked mid-palate and a blockbuster finish. Opening up in the glass, with copious blackberry, cassis, graphite, violets and spring flower-like nuances, it needs another 2-3 years of bottle age, and will have upward of thr...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another perfect wine is the 2016 James Berry Vineyard Rocket Block, which always comes from a single block of the oldest Grenache vines in the James Berry Vineyard as well as around one-third of Mourvèdre. Its deep ruby/purple hue is followed by incredibly complex notes of black fruits, chocolate, cured meats, flowery incense, and assorted spicy, meaty, Mourvèdre-dominated nuances. Full-bodied, voluptuous, and perfectly balanced, with that rare sense of intensity paired with elegance, it has some upfront appeal, but do your best ...

2012 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Back In Stock!
97 points Decanter: "Soft and juicy with flattering, bright red fruits. The alcohol is showing through just a little bit but it's countered by precise acidity. Starting to show really nicely when tasted in 2019, taking on cedar and tobacco leaf. This is a happy, juicy style, full of life - flamboyant but stylish. (MW)" (10/2019) 97 points Wine Spectator: "A stunner, with a gorgeous cassis aroma that soars from the glass, reinforced by a core of cassis, cherry and plum pâte de fruit, hoisin sauce, warm ganache and well-roasted apple wood notes. Hefty, b...

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is considered by many observers in Chateauneuf du Pape to be the wine of the vintage, and it can most certainly be counted among the finest. A blend of 80% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Mourvedre tipping the scales at 15.5% natural alcohol (which is slightly less than the Chaupin), the wine has an inky black/purple color as well as incredible density and richness, with notes of soy, blackberry, and blueberry liqueur, incense, acacia flowers and licorice. The layered,...

1995 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Wine Spectator: "Very youthful, with a ripe core of red currant and raspberry fruit and licorice flavor surrounded by creamy tannins. Plenty of smoke, mineral and tobacco notes chiming in, but this still has a ways to go, with plenty of grip still on the finish. (JM)" (03/2006) 94 points Decanter: "The 1995 vintage was hot and dry, with good weather through to the end of the harvest. It's matured beautifully with 22 years now under its belt. It has a highly spiced nose of star anise, incense, raspberry and poached strawberry. It's beginning t...

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...

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Laurence was set to be bottled in November 2021, just after my visit. It boasts restrained aromas of leather, plum and garrigue but compensates for the slightly more sedate aromatics with a supple, complete and rounded feel on the palate. It's full-bodied, silky and long, ready to drink on release or anytime over the next decade and a half. My tastings during my evening visit to Domaine du Pegau included a number of other wines, both from Chateau Pegau and Selection Laurence...

95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A classic wine from this terroir, the 2018 Côte Rôtie La Landonne has a powerful, smoky, minerality style as well as rocking cassis and black raspberry fruit, full body, the plush, sexy, opulence of the vintage, and a great finish. It has a wealth of fruit yet stays balanced and pure. This is a gorgeous wine in the making." (12/2019) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dark-hued 2018 Cote Rotie La Landonne remains one of the stars of the Delas stable. Hints of thyme and sage appear on the nose alongside deep mocha s...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Basically all Grenache from a single parcel of sandy soils in the center of this hallowed appellation, the 2010 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenaches de Pierre is an otherworldly wine that offers incredible power and richness as well as sensational purity and elegance. Black cherries, cassis, spring flowers, violets, and garrigue all emerge from the glass, and it’s heavenly on the palate as well, with full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannin, a stacked mid-palate, and a huge finish. It’s a tour de force in wine and hats off to Marie Girau...

This offers the classic profile of Châteauneuf, with complexity and length bred by world-class terroir. (JM) " (03/2006) 93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "In complete contrast to the sweet fruited, easy drinking 1999 Clos des Papes was the masculine and slightly austere 1995 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Crau.

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes, which achieved 16% natural alcohol, possesses an inky/purple color. It is slightly tighter and more restrained than the 2010 Chaupin, but it has enormous volume as well as incredible glycerin, richness and fat. A huge bouquet of pure blackberry and black currant fruit intermixed with charcoal, incense, truffles and spring flowers is followed by a prodigious, full-bodied wine that is capable of 20+ years of evolution. I hope Chateauneuf du Pape enthusiasts can find so...

98-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Still aging in demi-muids (the blend was made and moved to demi-muids when the other single vineyards were bottled), the 2017 Côte Rôtie Belle Hélène reveals a deep purple color as well as a huge, powerful full-bodied style that's just begging for a decade of cellaring. This classic effort comes from the Côte Rozier and La Landonne lieux-dits and offers serious meatiness and masculine characteristics as well as ample black fruits, smoked earth, graphite, and toasted spice. It's a brilliant wine in the making, but not for those...

97 points Wine Spectator: "Intense, with a Turkish coffee note out front before the core of steeped plum, black cherry and fig fruit starts to unfurl, while extra hints of singed alder, garrigue and warm earth develop, adding length and range on the finish. Delivers muscular power and perfumed grace that work together perfectly. (JM)" (10/2020) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Boasting the darkest fruit of the three 2018s from Saint-Préfert, the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Collection Charles Giraud delivers notes of black cherries and dark chocol...

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2016 Bosquet des Papes "Chante le Merle" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes (97RP, 96JD, 95VN, 95WE, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The all whole-bunch 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Chante le Merle Vieilles Vignes is 85% Grenache, with the balance a mix of Mourvèdre and Syrah. The vines are all 80 to 90 years old, selected from parcels in Brusquières, Gardiole, Mont-Redon and Pignan. Glorious raspberry and cherry fruit picks up hints of mint and some stemmy notes, but they're remarkably well-integrated and should be completely absorbed within a couple of years. Full-bodied, rich and creamy in texture, this tour de force remains lively, silky and long on the finish. With 1,000 cases produced, it should be reasonably priced and reasonably available—an increasingly rare combination in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. (JC)" (08/2018)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010 Domaine Ferrand Châteauneuf-du-Pape (97JD, 96RP, 94ST, 93WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "A brilliant Châteauneuf-du-Pape that oozes class and finesse, Bravay’s 2010 Domaine de Ferrand Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a traditionally made blend of close to 97% Grenache, with the remainder an assortment of varieties. Aged all in tank, it boasts a complex array of sweet red berry fruits, white pepper, wild flowers, and licorice that flows to a full-bodied, seamless, and elegantly put together wine that has beautiful concentration, incredible purity, and very fine, polished tannin that frame the finish. Lovers of traditionally made Châteauneuf-du-Pape should not miss this and it is the essence of Grenache when made in a more feminine, elegant style. It is certainly superb now, yet will be even better in 3-5 years, and shine for 15-20 years. " (09/2012)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2001 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (96JD, 96JS, 96RP, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Beaucastel has been on a terrific qualitative roll over the last four vintages, and the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape (which Francois Perrin feels is similar to the 1990, although I don’t see that as of yet) is a 15,000-case blend of 30% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, 10% Counoise, and the balance split among the other permitted varietals of the appellation. This inky/ruby/purple-colored cuvee offers a classic Beaucastel bouquet of new saddle leather, cigar smoke, roasted herbs, black truffles, underbrush, and blackberry as well as cherry fruit. It is a superb, earthy expression of this Mourvedre-dominated cuvee. (RP)" (02/2004)

Bid on this bottle of 1998 Château Rayas "Pignan Reserve" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (91ST). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Sappy, liqueur-like aromas of raspberry, red cherry and pepper, lifted by a floral quality. Lush, suave and mouthfilling, with wonderfully sweet flavors of peppery red fruits and iron. A faint porty quality contributes to its complexity. Finishes fruity and very long, with fine tannins and late notes of pepper and strawberry jam. (ST)" (01/2001)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 Booker "Fulldraw" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (96JD, 95RP). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Fulldraw comes from a site located just beside Jensen’s estate Booker Vineyard and is 50% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre and 20% Syrah. It has a gorgeous, Châteauneuf du Pape-like (it reminds me of Domaine de Marcoux’s Vieilles Vignes cuvée) perfume of red and black fruits, spice-box, incense, fennel and cured meats. Ethereally textured and elegant, yet also ripe, powerful and concentrated, it has ripe tannin, it’s an incredible wine that builds with time in the glass." (08/2017)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Château de Beaucastel "Hommage à Jacques Perrin" Chateauneuf-du-Pape (OWC - 99JD, 99RP, 97WS, 96ST) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Shockingly good, the 2009 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage À Jacques Perrin offers an off-the-charts bouquet of Provençal herbs, truffle and wet-dog-like qualities intermixed with classic blueberry, blackberry and cassis fruit. Massive and full-bodied on the palate, with a sheer density and decadence that’s hard to believe, this is a pedal-to-the-metal effort that has the fruit to drink beautifully today, yet the concentration, mid-palate, tannin and balance to age for 3-4 decades. Made from a blend of 60% Mourvedre, 20% Syrah and the rest Counoise and Grenache, this is one of the wines of the vintage. (JD)" (02/2015)

Bid on this magnum of 2015 Chimère (Sine Qua Non) Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L) (97JD). 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)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2007 Domaine du Clos du Caillou "Reserve les Clos du Caillou" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (98RP, 95VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The largest scaled and most concentrated in the lineup is easily the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape La Reserve, which is 70% Grenache and 30% Mourvèdre that was raised all in demi-muids. Just a flat out sensational bottle of wine, it offers tons of black currants, licorice, roasted meats and toasted spice aromas and flavors in a full-bodied, seamless, perfectly balanced style that’s drunk well since release. It’s great today, but has another decade or more of longevity. (JD)" (02/2017)

Of the 2010 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Wine Spectator writes: "Lots of cocoa powder and coffee frame a massive block of dark plum, black currant and fig fruit, while massively endowed tannins stride from start to finish. Cassis, anise and Lapsang souchong tea notes hang in the background for now, but should emerge more with extended cellaring. The very dark, almost brooding finish is dominated by charcoal-coated grip, but the purity still wins out in the end. A very, very large wine. *#4 on the Top 100 Wines of 2012* (JM)" (10/2012)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2007 Domaine du Pegau "Cuvée da Capo" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (100RP, 96VN, 96WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A deeper, richer version of the Cuvee Reservee, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee da Capo is one of the more youthful, concentrated wines of the vintage. Coming primarily from the la Crau lieu-dit and over 90% Grenache, aged in an old foudre, its deep ruby color is followed by a bonafide smorgasbord of Provencal aromas and flavors of garrigue, cured meats, incense, beef blood, black currants and pepper. While a full-bodied, incredibly concentrated, rich and unctuous wine, it carries its wealth of fruit and mid-palate density with incredible elegance and purity, with a seamless texture, no hard edges and a finish that won't quit. The 2007 is more elegant and seamless than both the 1998 and 2003, with an incredible sweetness of tannin. (JD)" (02/2017)

Bid on this bottle of 1990 Henri Bonneau "Cuvée Spéciale" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (97JD, 96JG, 96RP). Jeb Dunnuck: "The late harvest, 16.5% alcohol (w/ 3 grams residual sugar) 1990 Henri Bonneau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Spéciale shows fantastic, Amarone like aromatics of grilled meat, blood, roasted herbs, liquefied stems and leather nuances all supported by borderline overripe plum and prune fruit. Full bodied on the palate with stunning balance, decadent fruit and a seamless texture, this picks up a chocolaty richness on the blockbuster finish. The alcohol is certainly noticeable on the tail end of the finish but this remains an absolutely stunning, unique bottle of wine!" (04/2009)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Willow Creek District Rhône Blend (100JD, 97WS, 96RP, 96VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "One of the greatest GSM blends to ever come out of California is the 2016 James Berry Vineyard, which is 55% Grenache, 24% Mourvèdre, 13% Syrah, and 8% Counoise. This sensational wine reminds me of the 2016 Mon Aïeul from Pierre Usseglio with its awesome perfume of sweet blackberry and cassis fruits, smoke meats, exotic spice, licorice, and garrigue-like aromas and flavors. Deep, rich and layered on the palate, with a massive core of sweet fruit, this beauty builds with time in the glass and has incredible purity of fruit, a mix of richness and elegance that's hard to describe, sweet tannins, and a huge finish. It's every bit as impressive as the 2007 was on release. Hats off to Justin Smith for this incredible wine! I finished my note with 'the greatest GSM blend from California, ever.'" (11/2018)

Bid on this magnum of 1988 Chateau de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L) (94JG, 92JD, 92RP). John Gilman: "Château de Beaucastel, along with Château Rayas, was formerly one of the two greatest estates in the region, but it has changed its style in recent times and lost its way. However, back in the late 1980s, this domaine was at the absolute top of its game and their 1988 bottling is drinking stunning well at age 30, with a complex bouquet that wafts from the glass in a complex and tertiary mix of red and dark berries, sous bois, roasted venison, pepper, balsam bough and a topnote of bonfires. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and perfectly balanced, with a fine core, stunning soil signature, modest tannins and a very long, very complex and stellar finish. “Exhibit A” of just how great the top wines of Châteauneuf du Pape used to be!"

Of the 2015 Next of Kyn (Sine Qua Non) "Cumulus Vineyard No. 9'' Central Coast Red Blend, Vinous writes: "The 2015 No. 9 Cumulus Vineyard is off the charts gorgeous, just as it was from barrel last year. Tasted from bottle, the 2009 is a bit closed, but all the aromatic depth, soaring intensity and energy that it showed from barrel is there. Time in the glass brings out the wine’s sensational pedigree. Dark cherry jam, mocha, grilled herbs and leather are some of the many notes that develop with time, but it is the wine’s overall structure that truly elevates into the realm of the divine.

Jeb Dunnuck: "Another perfect wine from this family is the 2010 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin, an incredibly concentrated, powerful, backward wine that’s just now starting to shed its baby fat and tannins. Massive notes of black and blue fruits, black truffle, ground pepper, and a beautiful sense of minerality all flow to a full-bodied, deep, awesome wine that has a huge mid-palate, riveting purity of fruit, and a finish that won’t quit."

Of the 2007 Saxum "Broken Stones" Paso Robles Rhône Blend, Jeb Dunnuck writes: "The 2007 Broken Stones is 71% Syrah, 18% Grenache and 11% Mourvèdre that also saw plenty of stems in the ferments. It too is incredibly elegant, with more plums, violets, incense and peppery aromatics. Full-bodied, silky and pure on the palate, with a killer texture, it's still youthful, but is drinking beautifully. It has another decade of longevity." (07/2018)

Bid on this bottle of 2015 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Willow Creek District Rhône Blend (97RP, 97VN, 96JD, 95WS). Vinous: "Glass-staining ruby. Heady aromas of mineral-tinged dark berry liqueur, incense and roasted coffee, with a suave floral nuance adding brightness. Smoky, appealingly sweet and focused, offering palate-staining black and blue fruit and candied licorice flavors that are braced by juicy acidity and a late flourish of five-spice powder. Closes with outstanding clarity and floral-dominated persistence, leaving suave floral pastille and spicecake notes behind, eventually. (JR)" (11/2017)

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2015 Domaine De Saje '1600' Chateauneuf du Pape (93RP, 90JD). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A rarity in Chateauneuf du Pape, Domaine de Saje's 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape 1600 features Counoise as the largest varietal component (42%), followed by Grenache (20%) and Mourvèdre (20%). The balance consists of tiny amounts of the other permitted varieties. Given Counoise's ability to retain acid and ripen at relatively low brix, could this be one possible way forward for an appellation struggling with high alcohol levels? The wine is complex, blending notes of cherry, cracked pepper, garrigue and clove, but also full-bodied and silky in texture, with a long finish. Impressive! (JC)" (10/2017)

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2017 The Third Twin (Sine Qua Non) "Nuestra Señora del Tercer Gemelo" Central Coast Red Blend (OWC - 98JD, 98RP, (94-96VN)) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is the second edition of this single-vineyard cuvée from The Third Twin estate in Los Alamos, as a follow-up to last year’s “Nuestra Senora Del Tercer Gemelo, ” but this time the core of the blend is Grenache as opposed to Mourvèdre. Due to a possible trademark dispute, this wine may get a name change prior to release, potentially to be called, “The Other Lady.” The small proportion of Viognier in this blend was co-fermented with red grapes, but interestingly, because it ripens earlier than the reds, the white berries were frozen and added to the reds at the time of fermentation.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2007 Domaine du Clos du Caillou "Les Quartz" Châteaunuef-du-Pape (97JD, 95RP, 95WS, 94VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "In the same mold as the 2009, the 2007 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Quartz is an incredibly, sexy, Provençal, crazily perfumed beauty that could come from nowhere else. Lots of kirsch liqueur, blackberries, garrigue, licorice, and incense notes dominate the bouquet. Full-bodied, opulent, and powerful on the palate, it has sweet tannins, remarkable purity, and a great, great finish. It’s another tour de force from this estate that’s drinking at point today."

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Château Rayas "Réservé" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (96RP, 96ST, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing the more structured, savory and austere side of the vintage, the 2005 Rayas Chateauneuf du Pape will be a 20-30 year wine. Offering up lots of darker fruits, gunpowder, ground pepper, truffles and licorice, it has full-bodied richness, a beautiful texture and no shortage of tannin or acid, both of which make themselves known on the finish. This is a wine to hide in the cellar for at least another 4-5 years, and it will still be going strong in 2030+. (JD) 96+" (02/2015)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2001 Pierre Usseglio "Cuvée de Mon Aïeul" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (99RP, 97JD, 93ST, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More precise and focused than the more exuberant, sexy and rounded '00, the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul is borderline perfection (I seriously considered adding a point here) and a monumental Chateauneuf du Pape that is drinking at point. Kirsch, olive tapenade, roasted meats, tobacco and assorted mature Grenache characteristics give way to a full-bodied, massively endowed, concentrated, gorgeously layered wine that's just about as good as it gets. I kept coming back to this over the evening and it got better and better with air, so while fully mature, it's not going anywhere soon. (JD)" (09/2015)

Bid on this bottle of 2007 Pierre Usseglio "Réserve des Deux Frères" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (100JD, 100RP, 95VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the wines of this incredible vintage is unquestionably the 300-case 2007 Châteauneuf du Pape Reserve des Deux Freres from the Usseglio brothers. A big bruiser of a wine that has a huge core of cassis and black currant fruit, it gets more and more elegant with time in the glass and offers complex notes of roasted meats, garrigue, beef blood, licorice and truffle. Made from 100% Grenache aged mostly in new barrels, it’s absorbed every trace of its elevage and is just a sensational Chateauneuf du Pape to drink over the coming 10-15 years. (JD)" (02/2017)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2003 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (97JD, 97RP, 97WS, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "While I've always loved the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape, it was extremely controversial in its youth due to its exuberance and ripeness. Yet today, with the wine at maturity, all of that controversy has been put to bed and I know of no one contesting the beauty of this wine - the 2007 vintage in Chateauneuf du Pape will be the same. Looking at the 2003 vintage, Paul-Vincent told me that they started harvest on September 5, but quickly had to stop due to rain on the September 7. They waited for the vineyards to dry out and the last plots weren't brought in until October 4! As to the wine, this beautiful 2003 offers a kaleidoscope of kirsch liqueur, Asian spices, ground herbs, blackberries and incense. (JD)" (09/2015)
