2016 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival) Back In Stock!
2016 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

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 ...Read More »

2016 Clos du Mont-Olivet "Cuvée du Papet" Chateâuneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another best to date, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Cuvée du Papet from Thierry Sabon is pure perfection in a glass. 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. It's one of those “iron fist in a velvet glove” wines and continued to gain depth and richness every time I went back to the glass. Old-school, traditional Châteauneuf-du-Pape doesn’t get any better, and readers should ...Read More »

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.

2016 La Ferme du Mont "Côtes Capelan" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Based on 80% Grenache and 10% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre, partially destemmed and aged in old barrel, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Capelan is going to be another blockbuster from this estate. Cassis, roasted plums, licorice and roasted herbs all flow to a massive, rich, full-bodied, unctuous beauty that has serious depth and richness. With sweet tannin, beautiful purity, it's a sensational effort that’s going to have two decades of longevity."

An equal-parts blend of Bourboulenc, Clairette, Grenache Blanc, Picpoul Blanc and Roussanne, made mostly in stainless steel, it finishes long, crisp and mouthwatering.

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The deepest colored of the trio and a true “Wow” wine, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Folie is 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre that was completely destemmed and brought up 10% new barrels, with the balance in demi-muids. An insane bouquet of black cherry liqueur, blackberries, crushed rocks, and pepper garrigue gives way to a full-bodied, incredibly polished, seamless Grenache.

2005 Paul Autard "La Côte Ronde" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A big, dense wine, the 2005 Domaine Paul Autard Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée La Cote Ronde is loaded with smoked cherries, roasted herbs, melted licorice, spice box, and chocolate aromas and flavors. What starts out as a very modern seeming wine, with obvious oak, morphs into a quite Provencal wine with beautiful spice and hints of garrigue. Full-bodied and powerful on the palate, this has real density and depth though the middle, thick, rich fruit, and a structured finish.

It's even better than that, marrying rose and tea-like notes with raspberry and cherry fruit. Silky and concentrated, it's more about elegance than power, yet it still lingers a long time on the finish.

98-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "When one comes across a wine like this in a blind tasting, it's human nature to second-guess the initial reaction. Yet every time I went back to the wine that turned out to be the Brunels' 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Centenaire, I came away astounded by its complexity and balance. Yes, it's full-bodied, but it's also light on its feet, a lithe vinous gymnast, wiry and strong yet graceful and loaded with nuance.

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 Raymond Usseglio Chateauneuf-du-Pape "La Part des Anges" (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dominated by Mourvèdre (70%) and new oak (80%), the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape la Part des Anges is a beauty, as long as you set aside preconceptions about typicity and what you think Châteauneuf should taste like. Toasted cedar and vanilla accent black cherry and cola notes in this full-bodied, rich, plush wine that comes at you in supple waves of generosity and flavor. It's approachable (although primary) right now, but it should really hit its stride in 2-3 years and drink well through at least 2035. (JC)" (08/2 ...Read More »

This Grenache-dominated effort was brought up all in foudre and tastes like the essence of this incredible terroir located on the northern edge of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

While Laurence says her 2015s remind her of her 2010s, I find a certain 2010-like purity in this wine as well as killer notes of black raspberries, blueberries, garrigue, and pepper.

Full-bodied and beautifully concentrated, with tons of structure, it stays fresh and elegant, has sweet tannins, and a blockbuster finish.

The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is a full-bodied, supple but richly tannic blend of 61% Grenache, 22% Syrah and 17% Mourvèdre that spent time in foudres, old barriques and concrete, maturing into a strong, concentrated effort loaded with cherry fruit and spice.

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.

2003 Domaine La Millière "Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Pungent red berry, floral and mineral aromas are reminiscent of Pinot Noir. Deeply flavored but not heavy, with sweet red fruit and floral pastille flavors and an undercurrent of tangy minerals. Showing very good freshness and energy today, with impressive finishing lift and cut. Here's another wine that I would never have guessed was from a super-hot vintage. I rated this 91 points at the outset. (JR)" (12/2008) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I had high hopes that the 2003 C ...Read More »

2003 Patrick Lesec "Cuvée Bargeton" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blockbuster, the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Bargeton was aged 80% in wood barrels and 20% in tank. A blend of 78% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, and a dollop of Cinsault, it offers up huge aromas of garrigue, ground pepper, kirsch, and roasted meats. Dark plum/purple-colored, heady, alcoholic, full-bodied, and enormously proportioned, this 2003 is meant for true hedonists. (RP)" (02/2006) 90 points Vinous: "Dark red. Powerful, rich scents of blackberry, singed plum and blackcurrant. Deep flavors of kirsch and cassis, ...Read More »

2005 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Back In Stock!
2005 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

98 points Wine Spectator: "Really tight now, but packed with dark fig, currant, espresso, licorice and chocolate notes. Superfleshy but seriously structured, there's layer after layer of sweet spice, fruit and minerality pumping through the finish, with lots of latent depth and power. Far more backward than the 2003 or 2004 on release, but since this red typically puts on weight as it ages, it should be a monster--à la the 1990--when it reaches its peak. Best from 2009 through 2030. *Ranked No. 1 of Top 100 Wines of 2007, Collectibles* (JM)" (12/2007) ...Read More »

2015 Domaine Giraud "Les Grenaches de Pierre" Chateauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sourced from sandy soils in La Crau and Pignan, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Grenaches de Pierre is an incredible wine. Full-bodied, with a rich, unctuous texture and yet no sense of excess weight, it offers up scents of licorice and dark fruit, yet it somehow remains fresh through the long, velvety finish. It appears to have the stuffing to age for 20 years. Bravo! (JC) " (10/2017) 97 points Wine Spectator: "Gorgeous, with black tea and warm anise aromas leading the way for a core of ganache, raspberry pâte de ...Read More »

2016 Domaine de la Janasse "Tradition" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the Châteauneuf-du-Pape from bottle, the 2016 vintage was described as having the power of 2010 and similar to yet fresher than 2007. The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape offers a great bouquet of black raspberries, tapenade, crushed violets, and spring flowers, and shares lots of similarities to the Chaupin cuvée (and it’s less expensive!). Full-bodied, incredibly elegant and seamless, it might be the finest traditional cuvée ever produced from this estate."

2005 Domaine du Vieux Lazaret "Cuvée Exceptionelle" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Exceptionnelle has turned out to be significantly better than I thought last year when I tasted it prior to bottling. The greatest wine Quiot has ever made in my opinion, this wine shows a dense ruby/purple color and a gorgeous nose of camphor, blackberry, kirsch, some roast beef and Provencal herbs. Full-bodied with great intensity, beautiful purity, a multi-dimensional mouthfeel, and a spectacular finish of close to a minute, this is a fabulous effort from Quiot and should dri ...Read More »

2017 Chateau de Vaudieu Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc

92 points Wine Spectator: "Lovely star fruit, warmed pear and yellow apple notes glide together, flecked with heather and quinine details. Rounded overall, but with enough freshness to stay engaging through the finish. Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Clairette and Picardan. Drink now through 2019. (JM)" (10/2018) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Partially barrel fermented and matured, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc is a full-bodied blend of 43% Grenache Blanc, 35% Roussanne, 12% Clairette and 10% Picardan.

2006 M. Chapoutier "Barbe Rac" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The deep ruby/purple-tinged 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Barbe Rac reveals a rich, sumptuous perfume of root vegetables, blackberries, cassis, melted licorice, incense, and spice. Chapoutier’s single vineyard Chateauneuf du Papes represent two different areas of the appellation, with the Barbe Rac coming from the western corridor, not far from the Plateau of Mont-Redon. Chapoutier has adjusted the manner in which he ages these cuvees, as they are now completely aged in tank. It is incredibly full-bodied for a 2006, w ...Read More »

2010 Roger Sabon "Réserve" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Wine Spectator: "This is gorgeous, with lush linzer torte, boysenberry pâte de fruit and plum sauce notes that captivate, while anise, Lapsang souchong tea and singed apple wood notes fill in the background. The long finish is fleshy and driven. Best from 2016 through 2030. (JM, Web Only-2013)" 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reserve reveals a boatload of roasted Provencal herbs intermixed with lavender, licorice, cassis, kirsch, cedar, underbrush and pepper.

2016 Domaine de Cristia Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes (Pre-Arrival)

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "One of the gems in the vintage is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes, and it’s about as beautiful an example of old vine Grenache as I could imagine. Sporting a deep purple color as well as a huge perfume of blackberries, black raspberries, garrigue, crushed flowers, and exotic spices, it hits the palate with a wealth of fruit, a stacked mid-palate, awesome purity of fruit, and a finish that won’t quit. Made from 100% old vine Grenache from the sandy soils of the Cristia lieu-dit, aged in one-third new barrels, it has a ...Read More »

2005 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L)

95 points Wine Spectator: "Juicy and spicy, with lots of raspberry ganache and blueberry notes offset by hints of mulled spices, black tea and fig cake. Really picks up steam on the finish, with a racy, mouthwatering minerality. Should age beautifully. Drink now through 2025. *Ranked #3 of the Top 100 Wines of the Year* (JM)" (10/2007) 94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2005 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape shows a dark ruby, almost opaque color as well as a beautiful nose that is fairly perfumed, rich and complex.
