2015 Domaine de la Janasse Côtes-du-Rhône Reserve Top Pick!
2015 Domaine de la Janasse Côtes-du-Rhône Reserve

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A special cuvée for importer Eric Solomon, the 2015 Côtes du Rhône Reserve is a beauty that’s from a blend of 55% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 10% Carignan, and 5% each of Mourvèdre, 5% Cinsault. Kirsch liqueur, black cherries, ground herbs, and garrigue notes all emerge from this this ripe, sexy, opulent Côtes du Rhône. Balanced and layered on the palate, with some serious oomph, it’s a smoking value!" (02/2018)

2016 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

Nuances of dark, stony minerals, spices, wild flowers and herbs. So fleshy. This has impeccable balance, super-silky tannins and an extraordinarily long finish. This has decades ahead of it.

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Cuvée Romaine is another smoking vintage for this cuvée, and in my view, the best to date, surpassing the 2005, 2007, and 2009. Blackberry, peppery herbs, garrigue and hints of leather all emerge from this ripe, full-bodied, incredibly sexy, opulent beauty. With sweet fruit, a stacked mid-palate, no hard edges, sweet tannin and a great finish, this is rockingly good. Buy a case and drink it over the coming 7-8 years.

Perhaps as a result, it displays ample complexity on the nose and palate, with scents and flavors reminiscent of thyme, lavender and bay leaf alongside cherry and red berry fruit.

2016 Mas de Sainte Croix "Tendresse d'un Climat" Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Valréas

Jacques Coipel worked in the petroleum industry until 2002, when he decided to change career paths and enter the wine business. He purchased an exceptional site in the Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Cru of Valreas. His vineyards sit at approximately 1,200 feet above sea level on a mix of clay, limestone, and gravel. At this elevation, cooling winds from the north lend a crispness to the wines in the form of bright, red fruit qualities in the reds and vibrant apple tones in the whites.

More powerful than the classic cuvée, with killer black raspberries, crushed rocks, garrigue, salty minerality, and iodine, it's deep, full-bodied, concentrated, and sexy, yet has building tannin.

There’s a fruit core of singing lyricism, both vivid and fresh without being acidulous; the wine is tannic enough to give its fruit shape and gravitas but not roughness or austerity; and it has overtones which bring light and shade to the wine via faint notes of smoke, of cleansing bitterness, of the saltiness which is such a hallmark of parts of Crozes, and ...Read More »

2015 E. Guigal Côtes du Rhône

Spicy, peppery, hickory aromas lead off, adding berries up front and then moving into darker fruit and more savory notes of black olive by the finish. This medium to full-bodied wine finishes long and silky, avoiding any of the vintage's hard tannins, while still boasting the concentration to drink well through at least 2023.

2017 Cicada by Chante Cigale Vin de France

Chante Cigale means singing cicada (a type of grasshopper/cricket), and the Cicada red is their early-drinking, everyday Grenache/Carignan blend.

The domaine is planted to 40 hectares of red varietals and 5 hectares of white varietals spread across 45 different parcels throughout the appellation.

Blackberries, plums, cured meats, pepper, and earthy notes all flow from this rounded, sexy, powerful Cornas that has beautiful mid-palate depth and density as well as a great finish. Drink this smoking good 2016 any time over the coming decade." (12/2018) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Cornas Empreintes features hints of cedar, brown sugar and dried spices layered over its plummy fruit (it was aged in 20% new oak, with the bulk in olde ...Read More »

2016 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another perfect wine from this brilliant estate is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, which matches the otherworldly 2007. A classic blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah brought up all in old foudre, this beauty's deep purple color is followed by a mammoth bouquet of kirsch liqueur, black currants, blueberries, Asian spices, and garrigue. Full-bodied, concentrated, and powerful, it nevertheless is as graceful as a ballerina on the palate and has ultra-fine tannins, a silky, seamless texture, and a finish that just won't ...Read More »

2016 E. Guigal Côtes du Rhône Blanc

90 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The normal blend of Viognier, Roussanne, and Marsanne, the 2016 Côte du Rhône Blanc tastes like a mini-Condrieu with its white peach, apricot, spice and citrus aromas and flavors. This medium-bodied, elegant, yet textured beauty over-delivers and will keep for 2-3 years." (01/2018) 90 points Vinous: "Limpid straw-yellow. Fresh pear, orange and white flowers on the fragrant, incisive nose. Juicy and energetic in the mouth, offering focused citrus and orchard fruit and honeysuckle flavors and seamless texture. Closes on a minerall ...Read More »

2016 Emmanuel Darnaud "Les Trois Chenes" Crozes-Hermitage

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Crozes Hermitage Les Trois Chênes comes from alluvial and pebbly soils and was mostly destemmed and brought up in demi-muids and tanks. Similarly colored, with lots of blackberry, spice, peppery herbs, and hints of incense, this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a rounded, layered texture, sweet tannins, and a great finish. It's very much in the charming, forward style of the vintage and ideal for drinking over the coming 5-7 years (I suspect it will keep even longer)." (12/2018) 92 points Vino ...Read More »

2016 Domaine Raymond Usseglio "Cuvée Girard" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Girard is blended exclusively for American importer Peter Weygandt and is bottled unfiltered. It's about 90% Grenache and delivers a compelling mix of fragrant raspberries and savory, earthy spices. It's full-bodied and plush, with a long, complex finish that suggests it will age well for a decade or more. It's powerful and concentrated yet feels fresh and lively. (JC)" (08/2018) 93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Girard is a custom cuvée made by the im ...Read More »

2010 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... Today, the Domaine de la Jaufrette is run by Alain’s son Frederic, who has maintained the same traditional winemaking philosophy. Vinification is a slow process - the fermentation occurs naturally in large concrete tanks, where the wine is allowed to sit for up to a year. It is then aged in a mix of used foudres and ...Read More »

2016 Domaine de la Ganse Vacqueyras

Vinous: "Bright ruby. Aromas of spice-accented blackberry, licorice and dark chocolate on the nose, along with a hint of cracked pepper that adds spicy lift. Pliant cherry and dark berry flavors display a smooth, seamless quality and put on weight with air. Shows good clarity on a warm, broad finish framed by harmonious tannins. (JR)" (11/2018) K&L Notes: Coralie Onde was from a winemaking family but opted to start her own project independent of her family estate, Domaine les Ondines.

2015 E. Guigal St. Joseph "Vignes de l'Hospice" (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The most impressive vintage of this wine I can recall tasting, the 2015 Saint-Joseph Vignes de l'Hospice is an awesome Saint-Joseph. Visitors to the region can easily spot the steep vineyard just above the town of Tournon when looking across the Rhône from Tain l'Hermitage. Aged in 100% new oak, the wine still shows hints of cedar and vanilla on the nose but also notes of crushed stone and black cherries. It's full-bodied but kept in check by a touch of granite-like austerity that gives the palate shape and lengt ...Read More »

2016 Les Vignerons D'Estenzargues "La Granacha Signargues" Côtes du Rhône-Villages

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Grenache-based counterpart to the cooperative's Andezon bottling, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone Villages Signargues La Granacha is about 85% Grenache, with the rest being Syrah and Mourvèdre. It's a round, mouth-filling wine that has enough tannin to keep its bold black cherry fruit from seeming flabby or overdone. Thanks to importers like Eric Solomon and Jenny & François Selections and the deft winemaking touch of Denis Deschamps, the small cave cooperative in Estezargues has become a destination for bargain-see ...Read More »

2017 Domaine de l'Ermitage "Victor" Costières de Nîmes Rosé (Previously $11)

Costières de Nîmes is at the southernmost part of the Rhône Valley, on the opposite bank from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. One of our best new finds is Château de l'Ermitage, which produces three terrific values with eminent drinkability. The estate's history can be traced back to the 12th century, when the winery produced wine for the pilgrims of St-Jacques de Compostelle who were traveling the Santiago de Compostela. The property is now owned by the Castillon family, and today Michel and his son Jerome manage the vineyards and winemaking. The "Victor" is named ...Read More »

2016 Domaine Paul Jaboulet Aîné "Domaine de Thalabert" Crozes-Hermitage

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Crozes Hermitage Domaine De Thalabert offers a rocking (and classic) bouquet of ripe black fruits intermixed with notions new saddle leather, pepper, garrigue, and hints of bacon fat. This ripe, medium to full-bodied, silky wine has remarkable purity, is already complex, and finishes with serious length. Drink it over the coming 10-15 years."
