2017 Moulin de la Gardette "Cuvée Ventabren" Gigondas
Top Pick!
96 points Decanter: "Grown on sandstone and marl, the fruit for this wine is hand-picked, destemmed and fermented with indigenous yeasts then bottled without filtration or fining after maturation in old foudres. It's a beautifully natural expression of strawberry and raspberry fruits, with a juicy slick of crushed berries flowing across your tongue, ending with some massy, textural tannins. A perfectly balanced, joyful and drinkable expression of 2017 Gigondas with incredible purity. (MW)" (10/2018) 95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I loved the 2017 Gigondas Ven...

2017 Domaine de Verquière Côtes-du-Rhône
Top Pick!
The Verquière estate has been passed down from father to son for many generations and is now managed Thibaut Chamfort. Following age-old traditions and sustainable practices, the estate was recently certified organic. The Côtes-du-Rhône is a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah, grown on chalky clay soils with loads of large pebbles in the vineyards. Verquière recently returned to us after a long hiatus and we are pleased to have them back.

2017 Moulin de la Gardette "Tradition" Gigondas
Top Pick!
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...

2017 Mas de Sainte Croix "Passion d'Une Terre" Côtes du Rhône-Villages Valreas
Top Pick!
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) K&L Notes: Jacques Coipel worked in the petrol industry until 2002 when he decided to change career paths and enter the wine business. He purchased an exceptional site in the Cotes du Rhone Village Cru of Valreas. His vineyards sit at around 1,200 feet with a mix of clay, limestone and gravel making up ...

2017 Domaine de la Ganse Vacqueyras
Top Pick!
91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Vacqueyras La Ganse offers the classic ripe yet structured style of the vintage as well as terrific red and black fruits, peppery herbs, and garrigue aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, textured, and with ripe tannins, give bottles another year and it should keep for 7-8." (09/2019) K&L Notes: Coralie Onde is from the winemaking family behind Domaine les Ondines, but opted to start her own project independent of her family estate in 2008. She formed Domaine de la Ganse in Vacqueyras when she purchased some terrif...

92 points James Suckling: "A fresh and gently grassy feel with fragrant lemons and apples, leading to a palate that has baked-pear and pastry-like flavors. Smooth and resolved. Grenache blanc, clairette, roussanne and bourboulenc. From organically grown grapes. Drink now. (NS)" (10/2019) K&L Notes: The Verquière estate has been passed down from father to son for 4 generations and is now managed by brothers Romain and Thibaut Chamfort.

Wine Spectator: "This has a ripe core of cherry and plum compote flavors backed by a light red licorice note on the juicy finish. (JM, Web only-2018)" K&L Notes: Assembled with the help of winemaker Bruno Gaspard, this cuvée is specially bottled exclusively for North Berkeley Imports. The blend of 92% Grenache and 8% Mourvèdre hails from vines averaging 45 years in age. It's vinified in temperature-controlled stainless steel and then aged for a year in a combination of 60% neutral oak and 40% stainless. Aromas of wild thyme, lavender, and rosemary mingl...

Guy Farge is a third generation grape grower, but he is late to the game, so to speak, as a vigneron, having bottled his first cuvée from his own grapes in 2007. Nonetheless, his meticulous and committed approach in the vineyard (where all great wine begins) carries through to his winemaking. With his son, Thomas, running the business side of the domaine, Guy is making incredibly expressive wines from his 22 hectares spread over St-Joseph, Condrieu, Cornas, and Saint-Péray. This wine, his entry-level Syrah, carries a lifted freshness to go along with the...

2016 Domaine de Verquière Côtes du Rhône-Villages Sablet
Top Pick!
92 points James Suckling: "This has such ripe and juicy-fruit appeal; the flavors run so deep and so ripe with a fleshy, succulent and attractively rich palate. Smooth and fluid with some warmth at the finish. Grenache, syrah, cinsault and mourvedre. From organically grown grapes. Drink now. " (10/2019) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A complex blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 15% Cinsault and 5% Mourvèdre, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone Villages Sablet is wonderfully creamy and plush, with waves of ripe cherries and berries accented by hints of...

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...

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An unusual blend of 90% Roussanne with 10% Marsanne, the 2017 Saint Peray Grain de Silex is a perennial star. Honeyed orange marmalade on the nose pick up hints of melon and citrus on the fresh, lively finish. Medium to full-bodied, it's weighty on the palate yet turns zesty and refreshing on the finish. (JC)" (12/2018) Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Saint-Péray Grain De Silex is good value and is predominantly Roussanne with 10% Marsanne. It offers lively spiced citrus, lemon, and sappy green herbs notes as well as a ...

This is 100% Syrah from the southern Rhone that is aged six months in neutral barrels and bottled without filtering.

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...

91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Vacqueyras La Ganse offers the classic ripe yet structured style of the vintage as well as terrific red and black fruits, peppery herbs, and garrigue aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, textured, and with ripe tannins, give bottles another year and it should keep for 7-8." (09/2019) K&L Notes: Coralie Onde was from a winemaking family but opted to start her own project independent of her family estate, Domaine les Ondines.

Guy Farge took over the management of his family estate in 1980. Originally he sold his fruit to the Cave de Tain (where he worked) and then to Delas. In 2007, he began producing wines under his own label. Each year, the wines have grown and evolved as has Guy's winemaking prowess. Now working with his son Thomas, each bottling represents some of the best we have seen from his primarily granitic terroirs. The Bouquet de Blanc is an equal parts blend of Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne all fermented using indigenous yeasts. Aged in stainless steel, it is ...

Domaine de Cabasse was a highly regarded producer making wines from the Rhone villages of Sablet, Gigondas and Seguret. The family decided to sell their property in 2012 but there was one lone family member who didn't want to see it go. Scraping together enough money, Nicolas Haeni was able to buy just the Seguret vineyard and make that the focus of his new project, "Malmont." This remarkable site is very difficult to farm and the vineyard itself is named Malmont meaning "bad mountain." When it was developed as a site under Cabasse's ownership, they ...

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Atypically firm and structured for this cuvée, the medium to full-bodied 2017 Crozes Hermitage La Matinière boasts terrific aromas of violets, crushed stone, blueberries and licorice. It looks like a solid repeat of the 2015. (JC)" (12/2018) 91-92 points Vinous: "Bright violet color. Lucid dark berry and floral aromas are complemented by spice and mineral notes that build with air. Clean and energetic in style, offering juicy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors, a hint of olive and a late hint of spicy crac...

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Farge's 2017 Saint Joseph Passion de Terrasses comes from the estate's oldest vines and is aged in old (used for at least five wines) 400-liter barrels. The result is perfumed, with floral-herbal-spicy notes that add seamless complexity to the strawberry and raspberry fruit. Medium to full-bodied, it's silky yet firm, with a finish that's long and vibrant. (JC)" (12/2018) 91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Saint Joseph Passion De Terrasses is a step up in price and has a touch more ripeness as well as notes of...

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The barrel-fermented 2017 Condrieu Legende Bonnetta comes from the estate's oldest vines in the lieu-dit of Côte Bonnette. Pineapple and apricot fruit dominate the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is round and honeyed, then zesty and pithy on the finish. (JC)" (12/2018) K&L Notes: Condrieu is a particularly small region in the Northern Rhone that solely produces Viognier--but not just any Viognier. Simply put, these are the best in the world, and Condrieu is the benchmark by which all other Viogn...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "More closed, yet still loaded with potential, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape La Reserve offers a tight, reserved bouquet of cassis and blackberry fruits intermixed with ample spice box, mineral, and meaty notes developing with time in the glass. Full-bodied, concentrated, and straight on the palate, it has beautiful depth and richness, yet needs 4-5 years of bottle age." (08/2019) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "...Hints of cedar and vanilla from aging in 20% new demi-muids accent ripe black cherries in this full-bodied,...

Le Clos de la Bonnette is a small vineyard located near the heart of Condrieu. The terraced property perched above the river is believed to have produced wine since Roman times. The Cuvee Archette is 100% Viognier from the plane of Condrieu and aged for six months in stainless steel.

96-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "My favorite of the single vineyard cuvées in 2017 is the Gigondas Hominis Fides, which comes from a vineyard just across the street from Le Claux. It has a killer nose of exotic flowers, freshly crushed rocks, new saddle leather, flowers, spice, and violets. Possessing full-bodied richness, an incredibly sexy, seamless, yet powerful style, and an awesome finish, it’s unquestionably one of the wines of the vintage."

91-94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Based on 65% Grenache and 35% Mourvèdre, the 2017 Côtes du Rhône Reserve is the flagship Côtes du Rhône from the estate. It's slightly more purple in color and has darker notes of black cherries, black raspberries, crushed rocks, and garrigue, and minerality. Medium to full-bodied, seamless, and silky, with fine tannin and a beautiful finish, it's a gorgeous wine that I'd happily have in the cellar. " (08/2018) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Cotes du Rhone La Reserve is full-bodied, rich and velvety, ea...

Malmont is a single-vineyard labor of love. Deeply terraced and steep, with plentiful rocky soil, the Malmont vineyard is no breeze to cultivate - the vineyard's name means "bad mountain." But it produces deeply colored and structured wines that have made the effort worth it for vigneron Nicolas Haeni, who was able to scrape together enough money to buy just the Séguret vineyard after his family decided to sell their property in 2012, and made that the focus of his new project, Malmont.

Stephane Vedeau is the proprietor/winemaker behind critical darling Les Fermes du Mont. In 2010, Vedeau added Clos Bellane from the Côtes du Rhône-Village Valreas to his portfolio. Valreas is the northernmost of the Village level Côtes du Rhônes and Stephane's vineyards sit above 400 meters. This cooler climate and higher exposition lead to bright and vibrant Rhône wines that challenge the notion of big and jammy southern French reds. These are fresh, fruit-filled, and harmoniously balanced wines. The Petite Bellane is young-vine Syrah produced using n...

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Mind blowing stuff, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape is most likely the greatest wine ever from this estate. Still inky colored, it has a powerful, slightly backward feel in its crushed rocks, cassis, kirsch, toasted spice, licorice and dried flower-like aromas and flavors. Massively concentrated, thick, rich and textured, it delivers a serious lashing of tannin, yet nevertheless is perfectly balanced, ultra-pure, precise and long. It's the quintessential Clos des Papes and will have 30+ years of longevity. Note, yie...

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sourced as always from the Les Cassanets lieu-dit, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Quartz offers a slightly darker fruit profile than the Les Safres or Le Caillou bottlings. Boysenberry and cherry fruit is subtly influenced by dried spices and cocoa powder in this full-bodied, rich and concentrated wine. It's another stunning wine from this stellar property.

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A ripe, sexy wine loaded with cassis, graphite, new leather, camphor, and ground herb aromas and flavors, the full-bodied, 2017 Cornas Patou has brilliant concentration, ripe tannins, and a great finish. This rich, powerful Cornas doesn't pull any punches yet stays balanced, pure, and just shines on all accounts." (12/2019) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Cornas Lieu-Dit Patou looks to be a carbon copy of the 2016, with just a touch more precision in its notes of crushed stone, beef blood, cassis and raspbe...

This ripe, sexy example of Marsanne has terrific purity, no hard edges, and good freshness. It’s a terrific value that will keep for 2-4 years.

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Made from 100% old vine Grenache sourced from the Charbonnière and Esquierons lieux-dit, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes showed brilliantly from tank last year, and it certainly didn’t disappoint this go around. In the upper tier of the vintage, it offers a rock star bouquet of pure black raspberries, kirsch liqueur, garrigue, exotic flowers, and Asian spices.

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Crozes-Hermitage Le Grand Courtil was destemmed and brought up in used demi-muids. A brilliant bouquet of crème de cassis, graphite, toasted spice, new leather, and white flowers gives way to a medium to full-bodied Crozes that has a stunning sense of minerality, a supple, seamless, opulent texture, plenty of structure, and a great finish. The quality continues to soar at Ferraton, and this is up with the top four to five wines from Crozes in 2017." (12/2019) 92-93 points Vinous: "Deep, lurid violet color. Deeply perfum...

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."

It has good tannic grip, fine acidity and plenty of fruit for a punchy but well-balanced wine that's a bit of a beast. Drinking Window 2019 - 2026.

Revealing a deep purple color as well as an opulent, full-bodied, layered style on the palate, it has a kiss of barrique as well as loads of deep black fruits, cured meats, pepper, lavender, and gamey aromas and flavors. It will stand toe to toe with the top wines in the vintage. This cuvée is destemmed and spent 12-14 months in 10% new French oak." (12/2019) 93-...

97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "One of the finest barrel samples I was able to taste was the 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes, which, like the 2016, comes exclusively from the Charbonnière and Esquierons lieux-dits and is almost all very old vine Grenache. This full-bodied, incredibly seamless, flamboyant Grenache boasts sensational aromatics (framboise, strawberries, exotic flowers), beautiful purity of fruit, sweet tannins, and truly sensational length. I don’t think it’s going to match the 2016, but it’s certainly not far off." (08/2018)

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 '...

Just a classic Syrah from schist soils, with full-bodied power and richness, it has a stacked mid-palate, plenty of structure, and a great finish."

Stunning black cherries, currants, underbrush, ground pepper, and earthy, rocky mineral notes all give way to a deeper, darker, rich, concentrated wine that’s going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age. It will see its 20th birthday in fine form. 96+" (08/2019) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Drawn from sandy soils in the lieux-dits of La Crau and Pigna...
