2017 Domaine de l'Amandine Côtes du Rhône-Villages Seguret
Top Pick!
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This estate is emerging as one of the more interesting producers of Séguret. The 2017 Cotes du Rhone Villages Seguret, a cement-aged 60-40 blend of Syrah and Grenache, boasts floral, garrigue-like notes, plus ripe cherries and stone fruit. Full-bodied, lush and downright sexy, it's packed with fruit yet remains silky, fresh and long on the finish. (JC)" (11/2018) K&L Notes: L'Amandine was established in 1968 by Jean-Pierre Verdeau who followed the tradition of winemaking in his family. Born in the region, Jean-...

91 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and warm in feel, featuring blackberry and boysenberry puree flavors, supported by a graphite spine and carrying through an anise- and lavender-infused finish, all while the fruit easily keeps pace. Solid. (JM)" (10/2019) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: " Despite its massive body and alcohol, this luscious blend of 75% Grenache and 25% Mourvèdre maintains delightfully crisp blackberry flavors accented by hints of rose, violet and anise. It’s a rich, penetrating wine with silky, integrated tannins cushioning the finish. Drink ...

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...

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.

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Almost too good to be true, the 2017 Narassa is based on 82% Grenache and 18% Syrah, with the Grenache coming from the black slate soils of Maury and the Syrah from the higher elevation, sandy, granitic soils of Saint Martin de Fenouillet. Brought up all in used barrels, this full-bodied, deep, meaty Syrah reminds me a top California GSM blend and has a rocking nose of white pepper, black olives, cedarwood, and ample black fruits. At this quality, they could charge three to four times the price." (04/2019) K&L Notes: Proprietors...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Black raspberries, blueberries, scorched earth and roasted garrigue, with just a hint of oak, all emerge from this 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée des Générations Gaston-Philippe, and it's another smoking good 2015 from this team. Full-bodied, concentrated, rich and textured, it has the fruit to drink nicely today, yet will have two decades of overall longevity. The blend is 40% Grenache and 30% each of Mourvèdre and Syrah that was destemmed and aged 12 months in new French oak. There are just under 600 cases produced. 95+" (10/201...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The rich, tannic 2015 Lirac Baron Louis spent a year in barrel, a year in tank and a year in bottle prior to release. It offers up scents of leather, cedar and vanilla, but it balances out the oak with dark fruit notes of cola, plum and spice. It's full-bodied and velvety on the palate, while hints of licorice emerge on the lengthy finish. This wine has clearly emerged as one of the top Liracs.

Cherries, garrigue and leather notes all come together in this medium to full-bodied but gentle, elegant wine. It's smooth from start to finish, with fine-grained tannins and hints of thyme that emerge on the finish.

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A wine that almost always over-delivers, the 2016 Côtes du Roussillon Bastide Miraflors is, I suspect, the finest vintage for this cuvée to date (it’s in the same league as the off-the-charts 2015). A blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache from Lesquerde and Saint Martin de Fenouillet (both in the northern part of the Roussillon), aged all in older barrels and concrete tanks, it boasts rockstar notes of ripe blackberry fruits, spice, dried garrigue, and hints of chocolate.

Neal Martin writes: "Boekenhoutskloof is another of the few wineries of this scale that has undergone a lot of investment in recent years. I took a brief look at their barrel cellar, accessed through a long tunnel with winemaker Gottfied Mokke. “The first bottling that was done in the new cellar was the 2015,” he told me as I surveyed row upon row of barrels and several tiers high. “They are based on the OXO(2) revolving system so they don’t have to be moved to be racked. This has enabled us to shorten the élevage. The wines used to spend longer time in ...
