2016 Domaine Pierre Usseglio "Réserve des Deux Frères" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A deeper, darker color compared to the Mon Aïeul, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Reserve des Deux Freres is also 100% Grenache that was completely destemmed and brought up all in wood, with 20% being new. This cuvée is always a cellar selection of the best lots in the cellar. Crème de cassis, blackberries, white flowers, candle wax, cured meats, street market and spice nuances all soar from the glass of this awesome wine. Deep, incredibly full-bodied, and powerful, yet also light on its feet and graceful, with elegant tannin, it's an extraordinary wine tha ...Read More »

2015 Domaine de Fontbonau "La Lence" Côtes-du-Rhône Blanc (Previously $16)

Jeb Dunnuck: "This has fresh cream and melted butter on the nose, a touch of honey and orchard fruits. It’s rich and rounded on the finish, with a good persistent nougat flavour. Drinking Window 2017 - 2019 (panel tasting)" (5/2017) Jancis Robinson: "Big-boned. Quite rich and hefty. Lots of personality but this will need careful food matching. Lobster? To be taken in small doses. Really quite sweet on palate entry. But well balanced. (JR)" (3/2017) K&L Notes: 90% Roussanne and 10% Viognier

2016 Bosquet des Papes "A la Glorie de Mon Grand Père" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I was questioning if the top cuvées were worth the money after tasting the traditional cuvée from winemaker Nicolas Boiron, then I tasted his 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape A La Gloire de Mon Grand-Père and decided that, yes indeed, the special cuvées in 2016 can certainly be worth the uptick in price. Based almost exclusively on Grenache (there’s a splash of Cinsault and Clairette) sourced from the La Gardiole lieu-dit and aged mostly in demi-muids, this heavenly beauty offers awesome notes of garrigue, toasted spices, flowers, licorice and loads of sweet Gre ...Read More »

2016 Mas de Sainte Croix "Tendresse d'un Climat" Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Valréas New!
2016 Mas de Sainte Croix "Tendresse d'un Climat" Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Valréas

Jacques Coipel worked in the petroleum industry until 2002, when he decided to change career paths and enter the wine business. He purchased an exceptional site in the Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Cru of Valreas. His vineyards sit at approximately 1,200 feet above sea level on a mix of clay, limestone, and gravel. At this elevation, cooling winds from the north lend a crispness to the wines in the form of bright, red fruit qualities in the reds and vibrant apple tones in the whites. Around the same time, Jacques's son, Julien, began studying winemaking in Swi... Read More »

2016 Roger Sabon "Réserve" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The same blend as the Les Olivets (80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre), the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Réserve is similarly inky ruby/purple-colored and gives up a more dense, serious, backward style in its blackberry, melted licorice, roasted herb, and graphite aromas and flavors. With terrific minerality, full body, sweet tannin, and beautiful purity, it's a seriously good 2016 that's going to benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and drink nicely for 10-15." (8/2018) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Full-bodied and velvety, Sabon's 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve is a step up fro ...Read More »

2015 Domaine de l'Amandine Côtes du Rhône-Villages Seguret Top Pick!
2015 Domaine de l'Amandine Côtes du Rhône-Villages Seguret

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Cotes du Rhone Villages Seguret is firmly built and a trifle austere, but it shows lovely fruit and complexity. Hints of stone fruit blend easily into cherries while garrigue scents wander in and out, adding attractive lavender, thyme and bay leaf notes. Give it a year or two to soften, and drink it over the next 5 years. (JC)" (11/2017) K&L Notes: L'Amandine was established in 1968 by Jean-Pierre Verdeau who folllowed the tradition of winemaking in his family. Born to the region, Jean-Pierre continues to work in the vineyards and now joined by his son-in-l... Read More »

2016 E. Guigal "La Doriane" Condrieu Top Pick!
2016 E. Guigal "La Doriane" Condrieu

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The flagship 2016 Condrieu La Doriane also shows the freshness and more classical style of the vintage. Citrus blossom, crushed rocks, honeysuckle, and orange blossom give way to a medium to full-bodied, incredibly elegant Condrieu that gains depth and richness with time in the glass. It will be better this time next year and keep for 7-8 years." (1/2018) 95 points Vinous: "(aged for eight months in new oak barrels) Light bright yellow. Expansive aromas of ripe nectarine, pear liqueur, candied fig and pungent flowers, along with a smoky mineral nuance that builds in the back ...Read More »

2016 Domaine Grand Veneur Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes is up with the crème de la crème of the vintage and in the same league as the perfect 2010. Awesome notes of blackberries, crème de cassis, charred meats, licorice, and violets all soar from the glass. It's powerful, opulent, and structured, with building tannin, a huge mid-palate, and a blockbuster finish, yet it never loses its sense of purity and elegance. It's an incredible achievement from this estate. The blend is 45% Grenache, 45% Mourvèdre, and 10% Syrah, all aged in 55% new French oak."

2015 Xavier Vignon Vacqueyras

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the standouts in the portfolio is the 2015 Vacqueyras and it’s a full-bodied, charming, even sexy blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Grenache and 10% Mourvèdre that’s aged in a combination of one- to three-year-old barrels. Giving up loads of black raspberries, plums, spice box and garrigue, it hits the palate with an expansive, rounded and ripe profile that just begs to be drunk. I expect it will benefit from a year or two of bottle age and shine through 2025. (JD)" (12/2016)

2016 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2016 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another perfect wine from this brilliant estate is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, which matches the otherworldly 2007. 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. Full-bodied, concentrated, and powerful, it nevertheless is as graceful as a ballerina on the palate and has ultra-fine tannins, a silky, seamless texture, and a finish that just won't quit. Hats off to vignero ...Read More »

2016 Coudoulet de Beaucastel Rouge (Pre-Arrival)

94 points James Suckling: "This has a very plush, luscious and generously fleshy feel. Cherry compote, raspberries, blackberries and plums. Tarry elements, too. Smooth, velvety, pure and even. Succulence, elegance and clarity. Such value here. Drink or hold." (8/2018) 92 points Decanter: "Plenty of juicy Grenache strawberry fruit on the nose. It is full-bodied, expressive and athletic on the palate, really juicy with ample acidity and ripe tannins. Not hugely complex, but really concentrated and well balanced, putting many lesser Châteauneufs to shame. Drinking Window 2018 - 2023.

2014 Domaine des Bosquets Gigondas (Previously $30)

90 points Vinous: "Bright violet. An expressive bouquet evokes ripe red and dark berries, peppery spices, potpourri and a hint of_ garrigue_. Coats the palate with juicy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter and more lively with air. Rich but energetic, displaying good finishing focus and gentle tannic grip. (JR)" (5/2016) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Offers a polished, pure feel, with high-pitched cherry and damson plum fruit at the core, inlaid with violet and lavender notes. The sleek, focused finish shows a bright iron hint. Drink now through 2022. (JM)" (10/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Leading off the 20 ...Read More »
