2016 Domaine des Senechaux Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Top Pick!
95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "As to the red, rocking levels of kirsch, black raspberries, toasted spices, and garrigue emerge from the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It's full-bodied, concentrated, pure and elegant, with sweet tannin, and an opulent, flamboyant style. Based largely on Grenache, with smaller amounts of Syrah and Mourvèdre, it has fine tannin, impeccable balance, and a great finish. Along with the 2010, it’s the finest wine to date from this estate." (08/2018) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I appear to have underestimated the 2016 Chatea...

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another in a string of top vintages, Beaucastel's 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape was produced from Grenache yields of only eight hectoliters per hectare ("normal" is about 28 hectoliters per hectare, according to Marc Perrin). The final blend I was shown is almost candied in its fruity intensity of raspberries and cherries, yet it has a potent underpinning of more savory elements, like tapenade, grilled meat and dried spices. Full-bodied, with fine, silky tannins, this shows tremendous length, reverberating with hin...

2017 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "Piedlong" Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Top Pick!
94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "From the plateau of Piedlong and a blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Mourvèdre that was only 50% destemmed, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Piedlong offers a sexy bouquet of ripe strawberries, herbes de Provence, licorice, and garrigue that has plenty of sweet fruit and charm. Showing lots of minerality on the palate, medium to full-bodied, a rounded, layered texture, and a great finish, drink it over the coming 15 years or more. In the Brunier family since 1898, Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe lies on the eastern edge of Châteauneuf du Pap...

2018 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Top Pick!
95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A rich, mouthfilling effort, Vieux Donjon's 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape is concentrated and velvety, showing plenty of power and weight. Ripe cherries and raspberries are dusted with clove and star anise, then joined by hints of leather and cocoa on the long, intense finish. This is a beautiful Vieux Donjon that should drink well for more than a decade. The single cuvées of red and white Châteauneuf du Pape produced at this estate continue to impress, with the 2018 red coming across as particularly concentrated wit...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Lastly, and tasted from bottle, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Réservée showed brilliantly, with the beautiful, Provençal character of the vintage as well as classic Pegau notes of red and black currants, smoked herbs, cured meats, new leather, and ground pepper all front and center. More in the style of the 1999 or 2005 than say the 2007 or 2009, it’s medium to full-bodied, has beautiful concentration, ample structure and tannins, and a focused, backward mouthfeel that’s going to benefit from bottle age. This beauty will evol...

2012 Domaine du Pegau "Cuvée Laurence" Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Top Pick!
96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I loved the 2012 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Laurence, a serious wine from this solid, always charming vintage. Saddle leather, currants, garrigue, pepper, and ample spice notes flow to a full-bodied, opulent, concentrated wine that has terrific mid-palate depth. While it's relatively soft and forward on the attack, it has density as well as tannin. It's going to drink nicely for two decades." (08/2018) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Previously unreviewed by The Wine Advocate, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Laurence...

93 points Wine Spectator: "Bright, with cherry, damson plum and raspberry coulis flavors streaming through, flanked by floral and rooibos tea hints and carrying through a racy, sanguine-tinged finish that is sneakily long. Well done. Best from 2020 through 2035. (JM)" (11/2019) K&L Notes: One of our most popular direct imports, the price-to-quality ratio we've found in these wines year after year is simply unbeatable. Our customers have come to rely on this family-run winery to provide great quality, drinkability and value. The 2014 was the first vint...

93 points Wine Spectator: "A gutsy style, with a frame of brick dust around a core of steeped cherry, plum and blackberry fruit. The back end pulls in dried sage, savory and tobacco notes. The finish lingers over a singed chestnut hint. Rock-solid and unabashedly old-school. (JM)" (05/2017) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "According to Laurence Féraud, the 2014 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee was bottled in November 2016. It's already drinking well, with charming aromas of potpourri leading the way. It's medium to full-bodied, rounded out b...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of my favorite wines, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Réservée is a classic. Beautiful on the nose, with notions of ground pepper, wild herbs, minerality and smoked plum and dark fruit, it’s medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and has plenty of tannin that comes through on the finish. Similar in style to a lighter-weight 2010 … (JD)" (10/2014) 93 points Vinous: "Opaque ruby. Heady aromas of black and blue fruits, potpourri and Indian spices, with a smoky element emerging with air. Taut and sharply...

2015 Domaine du Pegau "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Top Pick!
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...

2017 Château de la Gardine Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Top Pick!
92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the reds, the deeply colored 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape offers a rocking bouquet of blueberries, blackberries, spring flowers, and ground pepper. It shows some more meatiness and spice on the palate, has medium to full-bodied richness, ripe tannins, and a great finish. Give it 2-3 years. 92+" (08/2019) 89-91 points Vinous: "Deep shimmering ruby. Powerful, spice-accented dark berries, cherry-vanilla and licorice on the deeply perfumed nose. Warm blackberry, bitter cherry and mocha flavors are sharpened by a suggestion of ...

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the 2018s, all of which were tasted from bottle, the 2018 Châteauneuf du Pape reveals a ruby/purple hue and is slightly opaque. Based on 85% Grenache and 5% each of Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Cinsault, it offers a gorgeous perfume of black raspberries, herbes de Provence, ground pepper, candied orange, and a touch of spiced meat. Pure class on the palate, with medium to full-bodied richness and ultra-fine tannins, it has terrific balance, a layered, elegant mouthfeel, and a great finish. This is one thrilling base cuvee to en...

Clos des Papes "Le Petit Vin d'Avril" Red Blend Vin de France
Top Pick!
This is the 2019 blend. This wine is producer by the owner of Clos des Papes Vincent Avril. It is sourced from vines near the Rhone River and is a bistro-style red that is a kitchen sink blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Mourvedre, Carignan & Cinsault. It is aged 1/3 iun barrel and is a blend of 2/3 current vintage(2019) and 1/3 the previous vintage which is why this is a non-vintage wine. A wonderful, fun and easy-drinking red this is a great value and definitely displays the Clos des Papes lineage.
Price: $23.99

91-94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A solid 2011 that should surpass what the estate did in 2008 (which is no small thing), the 2011 Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée, tasted from multiple barrels, is a perfumed, spice filled offering that oozes sweet red fruits, pepper, garrigue, and licorice aromas and flavors. It is softly fruited and supple on the palate, yet has excellent mid-palate concentration, sound tannic structure, and outstanding length. It should be approachable on release, yet given the track record here, also age gracefully." (09/...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This bottle of the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Chante le Merle Vieilles Vignes was singing at full and amazingly youthful voice this June. Black cherry fruit dominated the nose of this big, rich, tannic beast, which still has years ahead of it. Full-bodied and velvety, with a long, concentrated finish, I could see it aging through 2030. Nicolas Boiron, who runs his family's estate, is a huge man with an equal-sized personality. Quick to laugh and joke, he's a pleasure to spend time with in the cellar, even if his s...

95 points James Suckling: "10 hectares of elevated Châteauneuf-du-Pape, this is an hommage to Grenache with just a hatful of Mourvèdre. Ripe raspberry and red plum pastry aromas. Super silky, plush and layered. Extremely impressive. Shows fluidity and balance, density and lightness. 50% stalks (crushed)." (08/2017) 91-93 points Vinous: "Bright violet. Highly perfumed red fruit liqueur, potpourri, licorice and white pepper scents show impressive clarity and vivacity. Sappy, seamless and precise on the palate, offering intense raspberry and floral pastil...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I was also able to taste the 2016 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Da Capo, which comes mostly from older vines in the La Crau lieu-dit and spends an additional year in a large foudre. The 2016 vintage was truly magical for the region, and this Cuvée Da Capo is unquestionably one of the finest vintages for this cuvée ever made, in the same league as, if not surpassing, the 1998, 2003, 2007, and 2010. Sensational notes of cured meats, crème de cassis, crushed violets, ground pepper, tapenade, truffle, and sweet herbes de Provence all soa...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Hauts-Lieux comes from slightly higher elevation sites and includes more Mourvèdre than the Les Trois Source release. It’s pure, full-bodied, and incredibly structured, with a tight, backward style that’s going to benefit from bottle age. Showing a distinct salty minerality as well as loads of black and blue fruits, it reminds me of the 2015 yet with more elegance. Hide bottles for 4-5 years and enjoy over the following two decades. 96+" (08/2019) 94 points Decanter: "From three high-altitude par...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "One of the whites of the vintage is the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc, a gorgeous, rich, layered effort that stays perfectly balanced and pure. Classic notes of white flowers, honeysuckle, white peach, and ample minerality all give way to a medium to full-bodied white that has loads of texture, good freshness, and a great finish. This is a brilliant Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc that makes a mockery of so many of the overly lean, fresh, so called elegant whites being produced today."

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the 2017s and starting with the base Châteauneuf Du Pape, it's a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah that was brought up mostly in demi-muids. Revealing a ruby/purple hue as well as notes of black raspberries, kirsch, garrigue, incense, and loamy soil and earth, this beauty hits the palate with beautiful depth of fruit, a layered, rounded, sexy texture, no hard edges, remarkable purity, and just tons of charm. Drink it any time over the coming decade or more." (08/2019) 91-92 points Vinous: "Deep red. Highly perfumed r...

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Including more Mourvèdre, the 2018 Côtes du Rhône La Reserve checks in as 75% Grenache and 25% Mourvèdre that was brought up all in demi-muids. Almost opaque ruby, with a blockbuster nose of Bing cherries, black raspberries, flowery incense, toasted spices, and dry-aged beef, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a seamless, elegant texture, loads of fruit, and a great finish. The level of purity as well as finesse in this wine, paired with plenty of richness, is something to behold. It way over-delivers for a Côt...

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The magnificent 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes continues the string of successes under this label. While a bit less expressive on the nose than the other cuvées, it's impossibly voluminous on the palate. Full-bodied and expansive in the mouth, it's also rich and velvety, with ample tannic structure to support its almost overwhelming generosity. A whirl of mixed raspberries and blackberries join with salted licorice and dark chocolate, culminating in a long finish that combines more-ish salinity with the...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A terrific vintage for this bottling, the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape les Olivets seamlessly combines intricate, complex herbal notes of garrigue with oodles of ripe black cherries and plums. Full-bodied, supple and admirably concentrated, with a lush, creamy mouthfeel and a lingering finish of espresso and licorice, this tank and foudre-aged blend of 80% Grenache and 10% each Cinsault and Syrah is a beauty for drinking over the next 5–7 years. This benchmark estate continues to tick right along under the stewardsh...

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. Full-bodied, expansive, and multi-dimensional, this is another singular wine...
Price: $79.99

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Hints of violets and lavender appear alongside mixed berries on the nose of the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Prestige. While not overwhelmingly concentrated or dense, it's beautifully balanced, being medium to full-bodied on the palate, smooth and supple in feel and fresh on the cooling and silky finish, where it adds hints of mocha and darker fruit while retaining a sense of etherealness. It should drink well for a decade, perhaps a bit longer. This benchmark estate continues to tick right along under the stewardsh...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Château Sixtine is the finest vintage of this cuvée ever made, surpassing the 2003, 2007, and 2010. Deep purple/ruby-colored, with a full-bodied, deep, powerful bouquet of blackcurrants, ground pepper, crushed violets, and spice, it's full-bodied, has a voluptuous, powerful texture, sweet tannin, and a great, great finish, all while staying light and graceful. A blend of 50% Grenache and 25% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre, it’s going to keep for two decades." (08/2018) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Sappy a...

This cuvée is brought up in a mix of stainless steel, wooded tanks, foudre, and barrels, with just 5% new oak. Deep ruby purple-colored, with beautiful black cherry and blackberry fruits, it has loads of licorice and garrigue aromas, medium to full body, beautiful concentration, and considerable elegance and purity.

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A non-vintage blend of Xavier’s favorite vintage, the NV Châteauneuf du Pape X XII XV is a massive, thick, unctuous beauty that’s almost overflowing with notes of dark fruits, blackberries, truffle, chocolate and crushed rock. You almost need a fork to drink this baby, but man, what a wine! It stays lively and fresh, with building tannin, a stacked mid-palate and a big finish. It will take 5-7 years for the baby fat to fall away, and it will have two decades of longevity. (JD) 95+" (10/2016) K&L Notes: Xavier V...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Demeter-certified biodynamic 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc includes the six authorized white varieties of the appellation, including the rarely seen Picpoul and Picardan.

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I loved the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape, and I’d certainly be happy with a case in the cellar. Offering a pure, elegant, incredibly Grenache-driven profile of sweet black raspberries, incense, violets, and garrigue, it’s medium to full-bodied, ethereal, and elegant on the palate. It’s already hard to resist yet will keep for 10-15 years.

96 points Wine Spectator: "A real powerhouse, with muscular layers of fig and black currant compote, backed by braised beef, chestnut, tobacco and tar flavors. The long, mesquite-filled finish lets additional bittersweet cocoa and dark fruit notes linger, with lots of garrigue. Best from 2008 through 2025. *#12 Top 100 of 2007, Collectibles* (JM)" (05/2007) 94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I’ve always loved the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape from Pégau, and it’s drank beautifully since release.

98 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine shows complexities of cocoa, leather, rose petal and earth that juxtapose mouthwatering blackberry and plum flavors. Its fruit is at the forefront but anchored by a mineral undertow that should intensify with age. It's a beauty already, framed by fine, chalky tannins. (AI)" (12/2019) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In years in which there's no Cuvée da Capo, Feraud produces a Cuvée Laurence, which is similar to the Cuvée Reservée, but with extended aging (usually around four years) in foudre. The 2014 Châ...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As usual, the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Chaupin displays more red fruit than the main bottling, being 100% Grenache from sandier soils. Raspberries and cherries appear on the nose alongside subtle hints of garrigue. The full-bodied palate is almost airy in feel, supported by a latticework of silky tannins and bright acids, while simultaneously adding bass notes of dark chocolate and licorice that linger on the finish. It's an impressive effort. (JC)" (10/2020) 95 points Wine Spectator: "This bursts forth with de...

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Tasted five years after bottling, this wine still shows a core of dried strawberry and cherry flavor, but it's shaded by umami tones of balsamic, leather and mushroom. It's intoxicatingly rich on the palate but balanced freshly, edged by delicate tea tannins. This complex wine shows its savory side elegantly.

It's full-bodied, deep, seriously concentrated, has ample tannins, and a huge finish. This is another brilliant Grenache from Chapoutier that delivers everything you could want from the variety. Surprisingly, it’s less approachable than the Barbe Rac (which is normally the more structured wine) and will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age. 96+ " (08/2019) 94-9...

Giving up terrific notes of spice-box, cured meats, garrigue and mature Grenache fruit, this beauty is full-bodied, rich, concentrated and mouth filling, with serious amounts of fruit and texture. Like the '99, it's fully mature, but should hold nicely, although there's no need to delay gratification. In 2000, this incorporated a new parcel of sa...

It has great vibrancy of fruit coupled with real depth of integrated structural tannins and all matched with a gently throbbing acidity. It’s very ripe but not oversweet, and the finish is very long indeed. It's very well-tailored, and expertly fashioned, a real essence of Châteauneuf - very silky in style, and clearly a very crafted expression rather than a 'natural' one - but crafted with consummate skill. Grown half on large pebbles, half on sand in lieu-dit Les Cassanets, destemmed,...

Ripe, powerful blue fruits, violets, plums, and incense notes all flow to a medium to full-bodied, concentrated 2017 that brings the power yet stays pure, balanced, and focused. It’s a beautiful wine. If you’re oak adverse, give bottles 4-5 years. It should be long-lived."
