2013 Altesino Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $60)

95 points Wine Spectator: "An intense perfume of juniper, bay laurel, sage, rose and berries marks this silky red. The structure is there, yet superb balance and refined tannins help this retain elegance through the long finish. Almost ethereal in its presence. (BS)" (03/2018) 94 points James Suckling: "A wealth of ripe fruit with spice, orange peel and cherry. Full body, fine tannins and a bright and vivid finish. Drink in 2021."

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.

2016 Domaine La Soumade Rasteau "Cuvee Confiance" (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Nearly as great as the Fleur, the 2016 Rasteau Cuvee Confiance is 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah. Raspberry and mint notes appear on the nose, followed by a full-bodied, rich, velvety wine with a never-ending finish. Despite the incredible richness and concentration, the wine remains fresh and fragrant, lithe and agile, turning silky and lingering. It's another tremendous effort from the Romero family.

2016 Domaine La Soumade Gigondas (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Full-bodied without seeming at all heavy, the 2016 Gigondas is a 70-30 Grenache-Syrah blend. Raspberries and crushed stone mark the nose, while the texture is rich and tannic but ripe. The flavors turn darker and deeper on the finish, shading toward plum and mocha. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

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 »

Wonderful length and depth. Better than the 2015." (04/2016) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Tour Saint-Christophe is made up of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.

An extremely long and focused finish. A great wine. Needs four or five years to come together. Try in 2022." (09/2018) 95 points Wine Spectator: "This is full of enticing blackberry, blueberry and plum flavors, with a spine of acidity, iron accents and beefy tannins.

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Bottled at the end of June and brought up in new barrels, the blockbuster 2017 Condrieu La Doriane is up there with the crème de la crème, and just might be the wine of the vintage in the region. Stunning notes of buttered peach, crème brûlée, white flowers, and honeysuckle all literally soar from the glass.

Nothing is out place; instead, in 2016 Larcis impresses with its poise, depth and centeredness.

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 »

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.

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.

Awesome notes of blackberries, blueberries, crushed rocks, violets, and graphite all emerge from this tight, full-bodied, concentrated and backward Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

(04/2017) 97-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Lynch Bages is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot with 13.7% alcohol and an IPT of 95, the highest ever for this property a ...Read More »

2015 Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I tasted this wine after bottling but before its commercial release. The 2015 Barbaresco will hit the market on September 1st. It was scheduled to be released in October, but because Produttori del Barbaresco is already out of stock of the 2014 Barbaresco, they decided to move this release up and shorten waiting times. I mention that because you definitely don't want to pop the cork too early. The 2015 vintage opens to a visibly darker color and thicker concentration compared to recent past vintages. Next to the ...Read More »

2015 Montevertine Le Pergole Torte Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted as a barrel sample, the 2015 Le Pergole Torte is a 100% expression of Sangiovese sourced from the estate's oldest vines (between 30 and 50 years old). Like the other wines from Montevertine, Le Pergole Torte sees both its alcoholic and malolactic fermentations in cement, and the wine later ages in new oak barrels for 12 to 18 months depending on the vintage. After that first phase in barrique, it goes into large botte to complete its integration. This gorgeous vintage opens to a deep, dark appearance wi ...Read More »

2016 Lilian Ladouys, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

93-94 points James Suckling: "Firm and silky with a lovely depth of fruit and polished tannins. Some cedar and berry. Full and dense. Excellent length. Energetic acidity at end. Yes. Better than the super 2014. Best ever." (04/2017) 90-93 points Wine Spectator: "Juicy, with a lively streak of anise running through the middle of the plum and bitter cherry core. The finish has solid, fresh grip. (JM)" (04/2017) 91 points Decanter: "Château Lilian Ladouys has the same owner as Château Pédesclaux, with Eric Boissenot acting as consultant.

2015 Fontodi "Vigna del Sorbo" Chianti Classico Riserva (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Fontodi "Vigna del Sorbo" Chianti Classico Riserva (Pre-Arrival)

97 points James Suckling: "What a nose of clay, earth, crushed stones, rose petals, red licorice, baking spices, tar and Chinese spices. The level of sophistication to the red-fruited core, laser-sharp acidity and polished tannins, which grip and caress the palate, make this the greatest Chianti Classico ever made by Fontodi. From organically grown grapes. A long, long finish. Drink in 2022." (09/2018) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo (100% Sangiovese) is a wine that inspires a deep, dee ...Read More »

2015 E. Guigal "Ex-Voto" Ermitage Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Hermitage Ex Voto Blanc is certainly in the same league as the 2009 and 2010, and it’s going to be interesting to compare these vintages over the coming 2-3+ decades. The 2015 has all the hallmarks of a great vintage with its huge bouquet of quince, toasted almonds, brioche, liquid rocks, and honeysuckle as well as touch of licorice. Sensationally concentrated, opulent, and multi-dimensional on the palate, it has bright acidity and an awesome sense of minerality that keep the wine chiseled and focused on the palate. It h ...Read More »

2015 Casa Lapostolle "Clos Apalta" Red Blend Colchagua Valley (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Casa Lapostolle "Clos Apalta" Red Blend Colchagua Valley (Pre-Arrival)

100 points James Suckling: "There is a subtle complexity on the nose with currant, berry, fresh herb and wet earth aromas. Cut fresh flowers, too. Full body, dense and powerful. Incredible character here with such purity and polish. It goes on for minutes. Formed, sculptured yet soulful. A monumental wine for Chile. Unbelievable. More powerful than the 2014 which was 100 points. A blend of 46% carmenere, 30% cabernet sauvignon, 19% merlot and 5% cabernet franc. Made from biodynamically grown grapes. Better in 2022."

2017 Domaine Coquard Loison Fleurot Clos de la Roche Grand Cru (Pre-Arrival)

94 points John Gilman: "The 2017 Clos de la Roche from Domaine Coquard Loison Fleurot was really singing at the time of my visit and this is clearly going to be an outstanding wine when it has had a chance to blossom. The nose jumps from the glass in a fine blend of cherries, beetroot, a touch of blood orange, venison, mustard seed, coffee and spicy oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and impressively soil-driven in personality, with a sappy core of red fruit, ripe, seamless tannins and excellent length and grip on the long, focused and vibr ...Read More »

2017 Domaine Coquard Loison Fleurot Echezeaux Grand Cru (Pre-Arrival)

92-95 points Vinous: "The 2017 Echézeaux Grand Cru, which comes from two lieux-dits, has a lilting bouquet of dark berry fruit, brown spices and quite potent undergrowth, almost mushroom-like aromas that develop with aeration. The precise, detailed palate is very well balanced, with fine acidity and impressive weight and grip toward the finish. This is an Echézeaux of substance and should age well over the next 20 years. (NM)" (01/2019) 93 points John Gilman: "The Echézeaux from Domaine Coquard Loison Fleurot hails from three of the climats that make u ...Read More »

2016 Eric & Joël Durand "Lautaret" Saint-Joseph (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Saint Joseph Lautaret is a richer, medium to full-bodied, ripe Syrah that has tons of classic spiced red and black fruits, licorice, violets, and roasted, peppery herbs. This voluptuous, layered, meaty effort has the charming, fleshy style of the vintage yet still packs some serious oomph and density, and is a rocking wine." (12/2018) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The terrific 2016 Saint Joseph Lautaret is concentrated and tannic, one of the few 2016 Saint Josephs I'd recommend for short-term cellaring.

(03/2017) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Blended of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Haut-Brisson is quite oaky on the nose with underlying plum preserves, baked cherries and dried mulberries plus wafts of bay leaves, damp soil and cigars. Medium to full-bodied, it has firm, rounded tannins, seamless freshness and plenty of m ...Read More »

2016 Canon, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Decanter: "This vintage delivers a beautiful, classic style of Canon that is right at the top of what St-Émilion can offer. Compact and dense without being hard, it is finely structured both in terms of the texture of the cassis and blackberry fruits and in the shape of the tannins. It demonstrates a clear minerality and a feather-brushing of violet notes. This is less obviously sexy than 2015, but is a wine that offers a masterclass in what limestone terroir can convey - salinity, succulence, hints of austerity and reserves of power. I retaste ...Read More »
