2015 Clos Saint Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $40)

SKU #1323830 90-92 points Vinous

 Brilliant ruby. Pungent dark berry, licorice and garrigue aromas are energized by a hint of white pepper. Chewy and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry, cassis and blood orange flavors that show very good structure and depth. Closes long and spicy, displaying lingering dark fruit character, building tannins and a touch of succulent herbs. (JR)  (3/2017)

 Leading off the 2015s from bottle, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape sports a vibrant ruby color as well as an elegant, classic, pure style that just begs to be drunk. Garrigue, dried herbs, dried flowers, currants and kirsch-like aromas and flavors all emerge from this outstanding beauty that can be drunk today with plenty of pleasure or cellared for a decade. I’ve written so many glowing reviews on the wines of Clos Saint Jean I sometimes feel like a broken record. Nevertheless, this estate continues to go from strength to strength and has yet to make a misstep since I’ve been reviewing the wines. (JebDunnuck.com)  (10/2017)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is an intense, powerful wine that shows a touch of alcoholic warmth on the finish. That said, it's still a fine effort, bursting with scents of garrigue and loaded with red plums. The tannins are supple, so there's no need to age this one. (JC)  (10/2017)

Rhone Blends



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
