2016 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Back In Stock!
99 points James Suckling: "This is a stunning Beaucastel. A classic! Has a superb array of fruit, ranging from red, through to blue, darker purple and black. 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. Drink or hold." (08/2018) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bottled only a week before my visit, I was blown away by how well Beaucastel's 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape was showing. It's full-bodied, creamy...

2017 Moulin de la Gardette "Tradition" Gigondas
Top Pick!
93 points Decanter: "Grown on clay-limestone and marl, the fruit is hand-picked with no destemming, and is aged in old foudres. The wine is pretty, bright and open, with raspberry, strawberry and violet fruits. It's barely medium-bodied, but has a lovely expression of fresh and easy red berry fruits, accompanied by a juicy berry acidity and gentle blackberry-skin tannins on the finish. An easy-going and highly drinkable Gigondas. Just lovely. (MW)" (10/2018) 93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The classic 2017 Gigondas Tradition cuvée from this estate is a real wi...

2017 Domaine de Verquière Côtes-du-Rhône
Top Pick!
The Verquière estate has been passed down from father to son for many generations and is now managed by brothers Romain and Thibaut Chamfort. Following age-old traditions and sustainable practices, the estate was recently certified organic. The Côtes-du-Rhône is a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah, grown on chalky clay soils with loads of large pebbles in the vineyards. Verquière recently returned to us after a long hiatus and we are pleased to have them back.
Price: $10.99

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A greater proportion of Syrah than Grenache lends freshness and vitality to this crisp, medium-bodied red. Beautifully perfumed it offers loads of fresh rose-petal and black-cherry tones. Concentrated but invigorating, it finishes long on cutting red-cherry acidity and fine, feathery tannins. (ALI)" (05/2019) 91 points Decanter: "Fresh, breezy, aerial scents of raspberry and red cherry. A medium-bodied style that's fresh and lively, with some dried herbes de Provence among the Victoria plum fruit on the finish. A balanced, d...

2017 Domaine de Verquière Rasteau
Top Pick!
91 points Decanter: "An assemblage of two different terroirs: yellow marls overlaid with large pebbles at higher altitude, and clay-limestone on the plain. The fruit is all hand-harvested, destemmed then fermented with gentle extraction. The wine is aged in large oak foudres for four months before bottling. It's deep and juicy, with appealing plum and blueberry fruits. There's more blackberry on the palate, along with dense tannins. It's very well balanced and well structured, with good length. A good value pick among the 2017 Rasteaus. (MW)" (10/2018) ...

91 points Wine Spectator: "Open and rounded in feel, with flashes of salted butter, macadamia nut, white peach and creamed yellow apple fruit. A light blanched almond hint on the finish keeps this fresh. Clairette, Viognier and Grenache Blanc. Drink now through 2020. 375 cases made, 130 cases imported. (JM)" (11/2018) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Mostly Clairette, with up to 20% Grenache Blanc and Viognier (combined), the 2017 Cotes du Rhone Blanc features alluring scents of honey, tangerine and lime. Medium to full-bodied, it's silky in t...

95 points Decanter: "Very ripe liquorice, pepper, olive and black fruit nose. The palate is dense, fruity, tight and focused with saline tannins and a powerful, driving and grippy finish. Real terroir expression here. (DWWA 2019)" (05/2019) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Saint Joseph Terroir de Granit lacks some of the vibrant raspberry notes found in Farge's Passion de Terrasses, but it looks virtually equivalent in overall quality. Black olives and black cherries pick up complex herbal-stemmy notes on the nose, while the full-b...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An unusual southern Rhône blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache, the 2015 Lirac offers bright, juicy acidity and medium-bodied richness. Giving up lots of peppery notes, olive and darker fruits, it has good concentration and impressive purity. (JC)" (12/2016)

Jancis Robinson: "Grenache, Cinsault, Carignan. Rather pretty perfume and light red fruit. Dancing tannins and crackling freshness. A snap of energetic fire-engine-red fruit, ripe but lean, and pepper sprinkled right across the finish.

2016 Château de Montfaucon Lirac
Top Pick!
91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault, the 2016 Lirac was bottled just a couple of weeks before my visit. Perhaps as a result, it was somewhat reticent at first but later opened to reveal opulent, velvety notes of cola and dried spices. It's medium to full-bodied, with dark fruit and a long, rich finish. (JC)" (11/2018) 90 points Decanter: "Ripe, earthy nose. Structured, fresh and quite intense in the mouth with well-managed tannins and a long, floral finish. (2019 DWWA)" (05/2019) K&L Notes: An 88-acre est...

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Saint Joseph is a winner. Coming from 40-year-old vines, granite soils, and brought up in 30% new oak, it has straight-up classic notes of blackberries, crushed violets, pepper, and obvious minerality to go with a tight, medium-bodied, concentrated style on the palate. Possessing a rare level of purity and finesse in its tannin, drink this beauty any time over the coming decade." (12/2018) 91 points Vinous: "(50% new oak) Bright purple. Black and blue fruits, olive and licorice on the deeply perfumed nose. Sweet and bro...

88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Vacqueyras Bio is a big, fruit-bomb effort that offers lots of plum, blackberry, ground herbs and pepper in a forward, delicious and gulpable style. It will be ready to go on release. (JD)" (12/2016)

Alain Corcia founded his négociant company back in 1983.

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! Drink through 2022." (02/2018)

2017 Coudoulet de Beaucastel Côtes-du-Rhône
Top Pick!
92 points James Suckling: "Abundant, rich and ripe red fruit with lightly spiced pastry and quite brambly complexity. The palate has a super fleshy, bold and upfront-tannin shape. Fresh and easy." (10/2019) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Still not yet bottled for my June visit (it was scheduled to be bottled at the end of the month), the final blend of the 2017 Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet de Beaucastel was showing plenty of garrigue and dried-spice notes layered over cherry fruit. Full-bodied, silky textured and long on the finish, it should...

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Lirac checks in as 70% Grenache and the rest Mourvèdre, Syrah, and other permitted varieties, with the Mourvèdre and Syrah brought up mostly in demi-muids. Blackberries, garrigue, peppery herbs, licorice, and earth characteristics give way to a full-bodied, pure, elegant, beautifully textured 2016 that has remarkable purity and length. It’s one of the finest Liracs out there." (08/2018) 92 points James Suckling: "Bright flowers and sappy, purple-berry aromas. Some cassis, too. There’s a smooth, elegant and fresh core to...

2016 Xavier Vignon "Cuvée Anonyme" Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Top Pick!
95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Anonyme is the flagship and is mostly Grenache that was sourced from numerous terroirs throughout Châteauneuf-du-Pape and brought up in a mix of tank and barrels (some new). It offers a rocking bouquet of black raspberries, blueberries, lavender, Asian spices, and graphite. Like all of Xavier's 2016s, it has purity, freshness, and richness, yet still packs ample richness and depth. Give this full-bodied, elegant red another few years, and it will keep for a decade. 95+" (08/2018) 95 points Robe...

2017 Domaine de la Ganse Vacqueyras
Top Pick!
91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Vacqueyras La Ganse offers the classic ripe yet structured style of the vintage as well as terrific red and black fruits, peppery herbs, and garrigue aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, textured, and with ripe tannins, give bottles another year and it should keep for 7-8." (09/2019) K&L Notes: Coralie Onde is from the winemaking family behind Domaine les Ondines, but opted to start her own project independent of her family estate in 2008. She formed Domaine de la Ganse in Vacqueyras when she purchased some terrif...

2017 Domaine des Rémizières Crozes-Hermitage

Drink now through 2020. 2,500 cases made, 400 cases imported. (JM)" (11/2018) K&L Notes: The Desmeures family of Domaine des Remizières are fourth-generation winemakers who originally sold grapes to the local cooperative. After completing their winery in 1974, the family began production at their new property. The estate is now managed by Phillipe Desmeures, his daught...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The impressive 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is a blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre, 3% Cinsault and 2% Counoise, all aged in concrete. It shows lovely cherry-raspberry fruit aromas, ample weight and richness on the palate and a creamy texture. The tannins are supple, and the finish is long, picking up hints of cola and dried spices. A solid choice for drinking over the next decade. (JC)" (10/2018) 89-91 points Vinous: "Deep red. Ripe red berries, succulent herbs and pungent flowers on the high-pitched ...

2017 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Top Pick!
95 points Decanter: "At Beaucastel the Grenache and Cinsault are fermented in cement while the Syrah and Mourvèdre are fermented in foudre. The result features finely pixellated fruits of the forest on the nose, with a full-bodied but mightily fresh and lively palate. The Mourvèdre element is strong this year, bringing vibrancy and power. It's firmly savoury, very dry and dramatic. A very tannic year has produced a seriously structured Beaucastel for the long term. (MW)" (10/2018) 95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape is another sunny, b...

Chante Cigale means singing cicada (a type of grasshopper/cricket), and the Cicada red is their early-drinking, everyday Grenache-Carignan blend. The property has been in the family since the 19th century and is currently run by Alexandre Favier, who assumed the reins at the ripe old age of 20. The domaine is planted to 40 hectares of red varietals and 5 hectares of white varietals spread across 45 different parcels throughout the appellation.

90 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Blackberries, currants, Asian spice, and licorice notes all emerge from the 2017 Côtes Du Rhône Villages Plan De Dieu, and it's a fleshy, nicely textured, balanced red. The blend is 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah brought up all in concrete tanks. Drink it over the coming 6-7 years." (08/2019) Wine Spectator: "Charming, with a stream of cherry and red currant fruit carried by light sandalwood and tobacco accents. Drink now through 2020. (JM, Web Only-2019)"

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.

This cuvee is 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre brought up in concrete and foudres for a minimum of three years before release. " (02/2018)

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of the 2015 and 2016 vintages, the NV Côtes du Rhône S M checks in as the same equal parts Grenache and Syrah raised in tank and barrel. A huge nose of cassis, ground black pepper, garrigue, and olive tapenade gives way to a ripe, rounded, medium to full-bodied effort that has good acidity, building tannin, a seamless, light texture, and a great finish. It's a singular wine that has a big kiss of Northern Rhône Syrah with a touch of the rounded, sexy, opulent style of the south. It's going to drink nicely for a decade." (0...

Rejoice Tavel! In a time when very high quality rosés line our shelves, when pink wines from Spain, the U.S., South Africa, Italy, and all over the land of France are finally getting some much-deserved attention, we must give Tavel its special due. This is the original dedicated rosé appellation. In fact, so good is the fabled rosé from Tavel, that by law no other sort of wine can call itself Tavel! Layers of wild strawberries collide with a spicy note, a dash of citrus acidity, and so much fruit and flower aroma, it is almost too much. But then, when pa...

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "As with the 2017, the 2016 Gigondas Clos des Tourelles comes from vines inside the village. It's noticeably deeper in color than the La Gille and gives up a huge bouquet of blueberries, violets, smoked duck, and crushed rocks. Deep, full-bodied, concentrated, and multi-dimensional, it has building tannin and a huge finish. It needs time, but wow, what a wine. Hats off to the Perrin family for this utterly sensational wine." (08/2018) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Aged entirely in foudres, the 2016 Gigondas Clos des T...

2017 Domaine des Rémizières "Cuvée Christophe" Crozes-Hermitage

Just loaded with fruit, this full-bodied barrel sample has remarkable purity, a voluminous, expansive texture, lots of sweet tannins, and a great finish. It's a rock star Crozes that will have 10-15 years of overall longevity." (12/2018) 92 points James Suckling: "This has rich, dark-plum and chocolate aromas and flavors wit...

It may be late summer, but it's never too late for the latest vintage of Côtes du Rhône rosé! Domaine des Girasols' 17 hectares of gnarled, old-vine Grenache are found on a rocky, hillside vineyard protected from the Mistral wind on terraces and slopes with clay, calcareous soils covered with rounded stones (much liked the famed hot rocks of Châteauneuf-du-Pape).

The 2017 Terrasses is even better than the 2016 and ranks with the finest vintages I’ve tasted, matching the stunning 2010. The essence of kirsch liqueur, wild strawberries, and wildflowers flow to a full-bodied, plump, deep, beautifully layered and sexy wine that has medium to full body, ripe tannins, notable minerality, and a great finish.

Guy Farge is a third generation grape grower, but he is late to the game, so to speak, as a vigneron, having bottled his first cuvée from his own grapes in 2007. Nonetheless, his meticulous and committed approach in the vineyard (where all great wine begins) carries through to his winemaking. With his son, Thomas, running the business side of the domaine, Guy is making incredibly expressive wines from his 22 hectares spread over St-Joseph, Condrieu, Cornas, and Saint-Péray. This wine, his entry-level Syrah, carries a lifted freshness to go along with the...

90 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Light gold-colored, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc offers a classic bouquet of Meyer lemons, tart peach, and spice. It's medium-bodied, with solid depth of fruit, nicely integrated acidity, and a clean finish. It's very much in the style of this fresher, more moderately concentrated vintage (for the whites) and ideal for drinking over the coming 3-5 years. The blend is 20% each of Grenache Blanc, Picpoul, Bourboulenc, Roussanne, and Clairette, brought up in a mix of vessels." (08/2019) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate...

The fruit for Chante Cigale's old-vine Côtes du Rhône comes from hand-harvested, 50-year-old vines in the Plan de Dieu, one of the finest lieux-dits in the CdR AOC. Composed of 70% Grenache, 20% Carignan, and 10% Syrah, the wine shows noble but restrained red fruit character along with notes of game and subtle spice. This is as serious as Côtes du Rhône AOC wine gets with the potential for aging up to 10 years in proper storage. It is ideal to pair with hearty country cuisine like Ratatouille, and it stands as one of the finest values in the store.

The 2010 boasts a dense purple color along with a sumptuous bouquet of spring flowers, boysenberries, black cherries, black currants, nori (the sushi seaweed wrapper), black olives, licorice and pepper. This full-bodied, meaty, thick, juicy effort pos...

Winery notes: "What characterizes this vintage 2015 is its freshness in the mouth, red fruits, blackcurrant and blackberry. It should be served on grills and some fish and crustaceans with a spicy tomato sauce. It is also a wine for the aperif a little fresh."
