2017 Le Clos du Caillou "Les Safres" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Decanter: "Sourced from lieu-dit Les Bédines, the fruit is destemmed and fermented in concrete, then matured 75% in foudre and 25% in demi-muid. Loganberry and bay leaf notes display burgeoning complexity, leading to a very full-bodied and flowing palate with highly polished red berry fruit. It has great finesse in a highly tailored style, with incredible silkiness to the tannins - they're plentiful but super-fine. Captivating and seductive. (MW) " (10/2018) 94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "More elegant as well as more complex, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du ...

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."

2017 Chante Cigale "Extrait" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc

94 points Vinous: "Pale gold. Powerful, mineral-accented Meyer lemon and pear nectar scents show excellent clarity and complicating suggestions of fennel, iodine and smoky lees. Minerally and precise on the palate, offering concentrated citrus and orchard fruit flavors; deeper suggestions of honeydew melon and peach emerge on the back half. Shows impressive depth as well as energy and finishes pliant and extremely long, with a suave floral note hanging on.

2017 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

98 points 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.

93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc is another brilliant white from this team that hasn't put a foot wrong in the past decade or more. Buttered citrus, honeysuckle, flower oil, and white flowers all flow to this rich, beautifully layered, fresh and vibrant white that's impeccably balanced. Scheduled to be bottled shortly after my visit, it’s unquestionably another great vintage for this wine. One of the old guards of the region, Château de Beaucastel is nevertheless one of the most progressive and forward-thinking estates out t ...

2017 Domaine des Senechaux Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I’ve always loved the white from this estate, and the 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc doesn’t disappoint. Based on 36% Roussanne, 30% Clairette, 25% Grenache Blanc and the balance Bourboulenc, this medium-bodied, fresh, vibrant white excels on its purity and elegance and offers classic notes of white peach, pineapple cream, and white flowers."

2017 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

Deeply colored (more so than normal) with powerful notes of blackberries, currants, ground pepper, leafy herbs, and hints of seaweed wrappers (think sushi wrappers), it hits the palate with a full-bodied concentrated, powerful style that carries polished tannins, ample fruit, and a great finish. Marking a subtle shift in style here, this red will benefit from 3 ...

2017 Roger Sabon "Secret de Sabon" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L)

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "On another level, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Le Secret Des Sabon is stacked and packed and ranks with the top 2-3 wines in this great vintage. A huge nose of blackcurrants, melted licorice, graphite, garrigue and pepper gives way to an uber-full-bodied, concentrated, massively endowed wine that has an insane level of opulence and decadent, sweet tannins, and a huge finish. This is a tour de force in wine that readers need to taste to believe. Given its wealth of fruit and texture, it’s already approachable, yet a solid 4-5 years ...

While it’s brought up mostly in foudre, it has 10% in demi-muids and 30% in cuve tronconique. With thrilling purity of fruit, notes of black raspberries, blackberries, ground pepper, garrigue, and a distinct sense of minerality, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, ripe, sweet tannins, a beautifully opulent texture, and a great finish.

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.

It’s pure, full-bodied, and incredibly structured, with a tight, backward style that’s going to benefit from bottle age.
