99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "As with the 2017, the 2016 Gigondas Clos des Tourelles comes from vines inside the village. It's noticeably deeper in color than the La Gille and gives up a huge bouquet of blueberries, violets, smoked duck, and crushed rocks. Deep, full-bodied, concentrated, and multi-dimensional, it has building tannin and a huge finish. It needs time, but wow, what a wine. Hats off to the Perrin family for this utterly sensational wine." (08/2018) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Aged entirely in foudres, the 2016 Gigondas Clos des T...

2017 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Top Pick!
95 points Decanter: "At Beaucastel the Grenache and Cinsault are fermented in cement while the Syrah and Mourvèdre are fermented in foudre. The result features finely pixellated fruits of the forest on the nose, with a full-bodied but mightily fresh and lively palate. The Mourvèdre element is strong this year, bringing vibrancy and power. It's firmly savoury, very dry and dramatic. A very tannic year has produced a seriously structured Beaucastel for the long term. (MW)" (10/2018) 95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape is another sunny, b...

96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even better than I remember it being last year, and potentially edging out the L'Argnée this vintage, the 2017 Gigondas Clos des Tourelles is just flat-out terrific juice. From yields around 15 hectoliters per hectare, it's 80% Grenache and 10% each Mourvèdre and Syrah, all aged in foudre. Soaring floral notes of rose petals, violets and garrigue appear on the nose, followed by ripe raspberry flavors that flow almost weightlessly across the silky, full-bodied palate. So fine, so elegant, so long, it nearly lef...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another wine that got better and better over the evening was the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul. I've drunk through my fair share of bottles of this over the past few years. It has never shut down and has always shown well. A ripe, forward and sexy wine, it has lots of kirsch, garrigue, exotic spice and floral notes to go with a ripe, concentrated feel on the palate. It certainly has the vintage's Provencal character and is an exuberant, hedonistic Grenache to enjoy over the coming 10-12 years. (JD)"...

94 points Decanter: "Sourced from lieu-dit Les Bédines, the fruit is destemmed and fermented in concrete, then matured 75% in foudre and 25% in demi-muid. Loganberry and bay leaf notes display burgeoning complexity, leading to a very full-bodied and flowing palate with highly polished red berry fruit. It has great finesse in a highly tailored style, with incredible silkiness to the tannins - they're plentiful but super-fine. Captivating and seductive. (MW) " (10/2018) 94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "More elegant as well as more complex, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du...

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, licoric...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Côte Rôtie Eminence from Niero is another brilliant 2015 that should be snatched up by readers. A blend of 95% Syrah and 5% Viognier sourced from the Valliere and Coteau de Bassenon lieux-dits, aged in 20% new oak, it has a beautiful perfume of black raspberries, dried flowers, incense, and cured meats. Medium to full-bodied and seamless on the palate, it has an elegant, pure, yet concentrated style that’s going to continue evolving gracefully for 15 years or more." (03/2019) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Lavender and vio...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Including more Syrah, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Prestige is 70% Grenache 20% Mourvèdre, and the rest Mourvèdre and other permitted varieties. While it’s brought up mostly in foudre, it has 10% in demi-muids and 30% in cuve tronconique. With thrilling purity of fruit, notes of black raspberries, blackberries, ground pepper, garrigue, and a distinct sense of minerality, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, ripe, sweet tannins, a beautifully opulent texture, and a great finish. It's another rock star of a 2017 from supers...

90 points Wine Spectator: "Very solid, with a juicy core of blackberry and plum woven with cocoa and pastis hints. The smoky, spicy finish has nice length. Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Carignan, Mourvèdre and Counoise. (JM)" (06/2009)


94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As expected, the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Quartz is a ripe, exuberant effort. Plum, figs, licorice, roasted herbs and roasted meats are just some of the nuances here, and it has full-bodied richness, good concentration and sweet tannin. Drink it over the coming couple of years. (JD)" (08/2014) 91-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Soaring aromas of red berries, Asian spices and pungent rose oil. Thick and creamy on the palate, with flavors of kirsch, spicy strawberry and plum...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "One of the whites of the vintage is the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc, a gorgeous, rich, layered effort that stays perfectly balanced and pure. Classic notes of white flowers, honeysuckle, white peach, and ample minerality all give way to a medium to full-bodied white that has loads of texture, good freshness, and a great finish. This is a brilliant Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc that makes a mockery of so many of the overly lean, fresh, so called elegant whites being produced today." (08/2019) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Bright, wit...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The white of the vintage in Saint Joseph is the 2014 Saint Joseph les Granits Blanc. Coming all from one of the top terroirs in the region, the granite soils of the lieu-dit Saint Joseph, this 100% Marsanne release boasts terrific aromas and flavors of buttered citrus, poached pears, honeysuckle, spice and caramelized pineapple. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and textured, yet also elegant and silky, it should be a must buy by anyone who loves northern Rhône whites. (JD)" (12/2015) 93 points Wine Spectator: "R...

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Hermitage Cuvée Emilie Blanc (100% Marsanne) was brought up in 60% new barrels, with the balance in once-used. It has a ripe, tropical bouquet of pineapple, spiced melon, crushed rocks, and exotic flowers. Possessing a full-bodied, rich, sexy mouthfeel, a distinct salty minerality, and sensational purity, it will be better in another year and keep for 10-15+ years. It’s an awesome Hermitage Blanc!" (12/2018) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Displaying a pale copper color that is a bit atypical, this offers gentle citrus oil, ...

94 points Vinous: "Deep violet. Enormous, room-filling bouquet encompasses the full range of red and dark berry tones, along with an intense garrigue component. Powerful and quite sweet, with dense dark berry and cherry flavors framed by solid tannins. The fruit expands on the building finish, penetrating every nook of the palate and finishing solid and chewy. Pretty stunning stuff. (JR)" (02/2007) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More dense and concentrated, the superb 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Du Papet checks in as a blend of 80% Grenac...

97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Crozes-Ermitage Les Varonniers is another Hermitage look-alike with extraordinary notes of blackcurrants, toasted spice, new saddle leather, burning embers, and bacon fat. With full-bodied richness, awesome depth of fruit, and building tannins, it will mostly likely be the wine of the vintage from Crozes Hermitage." (12/2019) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sumptuous cherries line the medium to full-bodied palate of the 2018 Crozes Hermitage les Varonniers. Underneath—for the moment—are stony notes of gr...



93 points Wine Spectator: "A fleshy, ganache-driven version, featuring mulled plum and blackberry fruit inlaid with anise and Turkish coffee notes. Fresh fruit hangs on the finish. More bass than treble here, but the effect is rock-solid. Best from 2013 through 2020. 92 cases made. (JM)" (11/2012) K&L Notes: Louis Barruol is an indefatigable force in the Rhône. He is the fourteenth generation in his family to be making wine in this sixteenth-century domaine in Gigondas. On what was once the site of a Roman villa, Louis’ cellars show spectacular remains...

89-92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2011 Domaine de Marcoux Châteauneuf-du-Pape, a blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre, 7% Syrah, and 3% Cinsault aged in concrete and large oak tanks, has outstanding potential and offers up the typical Marcoux finesse and perfume, with framboise, strawberry, spring flowers, and rose petal qualities all emerging from the glass. It is medium+ bodied, very supple, textured, and has excellent ripeness through the mid-palate and to the tannin. It should be approachable on release and drink well for a decade." (09/2012) 92 point...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Condrieu Chery offers slightly more stone fruits, white flowers, and crushed citrus, with plenty of spice and obvious minerality coming through with time in the glass. Its vibrant, fresh and elegant on the palate, with perfect balance. It's another high-quality white from this estate." (12/2018) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Niero's 2017 Condrieu Chéry comes from vines around 70 years old. It's floral and ripe, with apricot and pineapple flavors in a full-bodied but balanced format. Rich and plush on the pal...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "With more of everything, the 2010 Les Origines is a serious effort that has thrilling richness and depth. A blend of 50% Grenache and equal parts Syrah and Mourvedre that’s aged for 18 months in new oak, it has a deep, rich bouquet of blackberry, crème de cassis, licorice, leather, graphite, and spice-box that gives way to a full-bodied, perfectly balanced Châteauneuf-du-Pape that builds on the palate, with fantastic richness, ripe tannin, and a finish that won’t quit. Despite its stint in oak, it barely shows and the overall impr...

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Full-bodied, yet silky-airy-lacy in texture, the 2016 Châteauneuf du Pape La Crau Ouest is a marvel of elegance and finesse. Wonderfully detailed notes of ripe cherries, dried spices, rose petals and back tea expand on the palate, revealing great intensity, complexity and length. (JC)" (08/2018) 94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Reminding me of a Grand Cru red Burgundy, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Crau Ouest (all Grenache from sandy soils) offers up a big blast of red fruits, spice, white flowers, and graphite. It...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Deeply colored, the 2017 Saint-Joseph Les Granits is all Syrah from that appellation’s namesake vineyard and was brought up in just 20% new French oak (a mix of demi-muids and barrels). It has a stunning bouquet of blackcurrants, blackberries, ground pepper, scorched earth, and graphite. This carries to a rich, medium to full-bodied, powerful Saint Joseph that has beautiful depth, no hard edges, and a great, great finish. " (12/2019) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Saint-Joseph Les Granits is packed with licor...

93 points James Suckling: "There’s a lot to like in this 2016. Pepper-dusted, red berries, strawberries, red plums and raspberries. Refined herbs on offer, too. The palate is succulent, fleshy and soft with tangy, red berries and cherries. This has a more approachable feel than the Reserve bottling from here. " (07/2018) 93 points Vinous: "Deep bright-rimmed ruby. Assertive blackberry, candied licorice, bacon and potpourri scents are complemented by a smoky mineral overtone. Seamless and energetic in the mouth, offering deeply concentrated dark fruit a...

93 points Vinous: "right purple. Assertive raspberry, licorice pastille and potpourri scents are complemented by a lively mineral overlay. Seamless and focused on the palate, offering deeply concentrated red/blue fruit liqueur, candied violet flavors and an energizing jolt of exotic spices. Finishes with strong mineral, smoke and red fruit character, with well-knit tannins and very good tenacity.(JR)" (04/2018) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Ogier's entry-level Côte Rôtie is concentrated, ripe and rich this vintage. The 2015 Cote Rotie Villa...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Saint Joseph Les Granits Blanc is beautiful and continues to be one of my favorite white wines coming from this appellation (if not the entire Rhône valley). This light gold-colored effort offers up a classic, mineral-laced bouquet of crushed citrus, white flowers, toasted almonds, and spice. Rich, medium to full-bodied, concentrated and incredibly elegant, it's a thrilling white wine that can be drunk today or cellared for over a decade. This cuvée is 100% Marsanne aged in 15% new demi-muids." (12/2018) 93 points Decan...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Cornas Les Eygats offers a more granite-driven bouquet of bloody blue fruits, liquid rocks, violets, game, and smoked meat. With full-bodied richness, integrated acidity, plenty of tannins, and more than enough fruit and pure opulence on the palate, this beauty needs 4-5 years of bottle age but is a singular, brilliant wine in every sense. This cuvée was destemmed and brought up in 50% new barrels. 96+" (12/2019) 94-95 points Vinous: "Dark purple. Heady, smoke-accented black/blue fruits, licorice, vanilla, peony and oli...



94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A big step up over the classic cuvee, the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Quet is a blockbuster blend of 65% Grenache and 35% Mourvèdre that spent 14 months in tank and foudre. A big, rich, unctuous and concentrated effort, it offers lots of black raspberry, currants, olive paste and a kiss of graphite on the nose. Needing time in the glass to show at its best, enjoy it anytime over the coming decade. (JD)" (03/2016) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Very rich and polished, with layers of black Mission fig, bitters...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Niero's top cuvée comes from selected parcels and sees just a bit more oak than his other bottlings (around 50%). The 2017 Condrieu Heritage is full-bodied and rich, a lush, silky sexpot. Floral notes mark the nose, while the ripe fruit ranges from melon to apricot and pineapple, all underscored by a potent note of wet stones and a lingering finish. Too bad there are only 1,200 bottles. Rémi Niero's tiny family domain amounts to just eight hectares: four in Condrieu, two in Côte Rôtie and one each in Saint-Jos...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "All from the Dionnieres lieu-dit, the 2017 Hermitage Les Miaux Blanc is 100% Marsanne brought up in 80% demi-muids, with the balance in stainless steel. Its medium gold color is followed by a beautiful perfume of liquid rocks, flowers oil, tangerine, and citrus blossom. It has a certain exotic quality aromatically yet is classic Marsanne on the palate with medium to full body, bright acidity, plenty of fruit, and a clean, balanced finish." (12/2018) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Solidly built, with ripe white peach, yellow apple an...

96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Rich, full-bodied and creamy-textured while simultaneously appearing almost weightless, the 2016 Châteauneuf du Pape Les Saintes Vierges looks even better than last year. Cola, spice and stone fruit notes provide plenty of flavor interest, lingering on the long, lush finish. (JC)" (08/2018) 92-94 points Vinous: "Brilliant violet. Mineral-accented cherry and raspberry preserve scents show excellent clarity and suggestions of garrigue and allspice. Silky and seamless on the palate, offering appealingly sweet r...

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The concentrated, rich 2017 Crozes Hermitage Roche Pierre looks terrific from barrel. Full-bodied and velvety, it's very much Hermitage-like in its power and length. Licorice, plum and dark chocolate notes all linger on the finish. (JC)" (10/2018) 94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Brought up in 30% new French oak, the 2017 Crozes-Hermitage Roche Pierre is also brilliant, with the exuberant, forward, sexy style of the vintage. Christmas spice, forest floor, new leather, dried herbs, and assorted darker berry fruits all...




91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of 80% Roussanne and 20% Bourboulenc, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc is a beautiful effort that has classy notes of white currants, honeysuckle, white peach, and some white flowers. It's medium-bodied, elegant and seamless, with a great finish. The white from this estate is a year-in, year-out no brainer purchase." (08/2019) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc comes from the domaine's single hectare of white grapes, planted to 80% Roussanne and 20% Bourboulenc. One-third is fe...

96 points James Suckling: "A wine with playful, attractive character. An array of red, blue and purple fruits. Gently spicy, chalky and fragrant, it has a very supple, fleshy and layered palate with a web of fine, smooth and supple tannins. Extremely elegant and composed. A long draw on the finish. Great depth and drive. This will live super long. " (08/2017) 95 points Wine Spectator: "This has a lovely, perfumy mix of savory, mint, tobacco, blood orange, cherry and bergamot notes all mixed together, carried by silky but ample structure before ending ...

94 points Vinous: "Shimmering ruby-red. A highly expressive bouquet evokes candied red and dark berries, cola, smoky minerals and licorice, and a sexy floral note builds as the wine opens up. Sappy, penetrating and pure, offering palate-staining black raspberry, cherry pie, blood orange and lavender pastille flavors that put on weight and turn spicier with air. Delivers a compelling blend of richness and delicacy and finishes spicy, focused and very long, leaving floral and red fruit preserve notes behind. Once again, this bottling is, perhaps, the top '...

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A candidate for the wine of the vintage in Cornas, the 2017 Cornas La Sabarotte knocks it out of the park with its awesome bouquet of blackcurrants, blackberries, toasted spice, graphite, crushed violets, and scorched earth aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, massively concentrated, and opulent, it has a wall of tannins under its fruit, a deep, concentrated mid-palate, and a great finish. It needs 4-5 years of bottle age and will cruise for 15-20 years. This cuvée comes from a granite terroir and was fermented and aged all in new Fre...

2007 Domaine Durieu "Cuvee Lucille Avril" Chateaunuef-du-Pape
New!
95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah and Mourvedre, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Lucille Avril receives the same upbringing as the regular cuvee, but is made from some of the estate’s oldest vines. Even better post-bottling, its saturated ruby/purple color offers up notes of cassis, jammy cherries, smoke, camphor, licorice, meat juices, and roasted herbs. Full-bodied, pure, broad, layered, and exceptionally long and silky, it can be drunk now or cellared for two decades or more. Bravo! (RP)" (10/2009)

2017 Paul Jaboulet Aîné "Le Chevalier de Sterimberg"  Hermitage Blanc
New!
94-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Jaboulet's 2017 Hermitage Blanc Le Chevalier de Sterimberg is approximately two-thirds Marsanne and one-third Roussanne. Subtle notes of crushed stone and pencil shavings frame honey, pineapple and baking spices, all wrapped around a tensile core of tangerine and lime. In a year when no La Chapelle Blanc is being made, this is the top white Hermitage from Jaboulet, and it's a beauty, with a silky texture and a long, mouthwatering finish. (JC)" (10/2018) 94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Brought up just like the Crozes...

98 points Decanter: "60% Marsanne, 40% Roussanne Tasting notes: This is a tricky white to argue with but an easy one to drink. Resplendent vanilla, toast, peach and pastry perfume. Very rounded, with oak silk on the palate and a very long and regal nutty-cashew finish. Satisfying, mouthfilling wine. Needs food, but won’t fail to impress. Textbook stuff. " (06/2019) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bottled only a week before I tasted it, Domaine Belle's 2017 Hermitage Blanc is a superb effort. Deep straw in color, it's a 60-40 blend of Marsann...

94 points Wine Spectator: "This is very solidly built, nearly bristling with briary energy along the edges while the core of steeped plum, cherry and currant fruit cruises through. Mouthwatering savory, tobacco and olive notes score the finish, all set against a lovely floral accent in the background. (JM)" (02/2019) 93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the 2016s and starting with the 2016 Côte Rôtie Ampodium, this beautiful, silky, incredibly elegant wine has classic notes of red and black fruits, spring flowers, hints of bacon fat as well as green olive...

95 points Wine Spectator: "Richly rendered, with lots of ganache and espresso notes leading off, followed quickly by waves of dark currant, plum and blackberry paste flavors. Singed tobacco and alder elements fill in on the finish. Features grip and drive to balance the heft. Well done. (JM)" (12/2019) 94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The flagship 2017 Saint Joseph Lieu-Dit Saint Joseph comes from one of the top vineyards in the appellation and spent 12-14 months in oak. It's another saturated purple-colored 2017 that has beautiful minerality to go with notes o...

95 points James Suckling: "This comes from the schist section, in the north of the appellation, and has a very complex and spicy edge to the dark berries and cherries. The palate has a succulent, savory and very powerful, expressive feel with latent spices and roasted meat, through a very intense core of black fruits. Ripe grapes and whole bunches here. Intense and juicy with strapping tannins. Drink over the next decade or more." (10/2019) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Notes of smoked meat and cold fireplace mark the nose of Saint Cosme...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Deeper colored, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Chaupin comes mostly from the Chaupoin lieu-dit yet always has small parts from La Janasse and a sandy part of the La Crau lieu-dit. Blackberries, ground herbs, graphite, and new leather notes all emerge from this concentrated, rich, powerful wine that stays tight, focused, and elegant on the palate. It's a killer wine, but it's going to need time. 97+" (08/2019) 93-95 points Vinous: "Brilliant magenta. Ripe red and blue fruits, potpourri, incense and Moroccan spices on the deep...

2016 Domaine Gourt de Mautens Vaucluse Rouge
Top Pick!
97 points Decanter: "No special cuvées this year, just a red and a white. Very small yields of just 10 hl/ha in 2016 - a year he compares to 1990 or 2007. This was a tasting of three different parcels that go into the final red blend. The vines from the slopes give a deeply fruited, juicy but fresh wine, full-bodied but not massive, with a distinctly resinous seam and fairly low acidity. The vines from the foot of the hill provide a vibrant and elegant raspberry scented wine with a powerful mineral undertow. The higher altitude old vines provide the deep...
