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.
Price: $10.99

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The silky 2016 Côtes du Rhône is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise. Cherries, garrigue and leather notes all come together in this medium to full-bodied but gentle, elegant wine. It's smooth from start to finish, with fine-grained tannins and hints of thyme that emerge on the finish. (JC)" (11/2018) Wine Spectator: "Gently mulled cherry and plum fruit glides through, with hints of warm fruitcake and melted red licorice. Offers a fruit-filled, modestly juicy finish. Drink now.

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...

91 points Decanter: "An assemblage of two different terroirs: yellow marls overlaid with large pebbles at higher altitude, and clay-limestone on the plain. The fruit is all hand-harvested, destemmed then fermented with gentle extraction. The wine is aged in large oak foudres for four months before bottling. It's deep and juicy, with appealing plum and blueberry fruits. There's more blackberry on the palate, along with dense tannins. It's very well balanced and well structured, with good length. A good value pick among the 2017 Rasteaus. (MW)" (10/2018) ...

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.

Top Pick!
93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The only 2017 presented, the 2017 Crozes-Hermitage Cuvée Christophe comes from older vines (65- to 70-year-old vines) and was brought up in 70% new French oak. Its saturated purple color is followed by a ripe, powerful bouquet of blackberries, blackcurrants, ground pepper, saddle leather, and leafy herbs. With subtle background oak, full body, ripe tannins, and terrific balance, it's a big rich, stacked Crozes Hermitage that will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for a decade or more. 93+" (12/2018) 92 points James S...

2017 Baron de Montfaucon Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Top Pick!
93 points Wine Spectator: "Bright, with cherry, damson plum and raspberry coulis flavors streaming through, flanked by floral and rooibos tea hints and carrying through a racy, sanguine-tinged finish that is sneakily long. Well done. Best from 2020 through 2035. (JM)" (11/2019) K&L Notes: One of our most popular direct imports, the price-to-quality ratio we've found in these wines year after year is simply unbeatable. Our customers have come to rely on this family-run winery to provide great quality, drinkability and value. The 2014 was the first vint...

91 points Wine Spectator: "Open and rounded in feel, with flashes of salted butter, macadamia nut, white peach and creamed yellow apple fruit. A light blanched almond hint on the finish keeps this fresh. Clairette, Viognier and Grenache Blanc. Drink now through 2020. 375 cases made, 130 cases imported. (JM)" (11/2018) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Mostly Clairette, with up to 20% Grenache Blanc and Viognier (combined), the 2017 Cotes du Rhone Blanc features alluring scents of honey, tangerine and lime.

2015 Château de Montfaucon "Baron Louis" Lirac
Top Pick!
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The rich, tannic 2015 Lirac Baron Louis spent a year in barrel, a year in tank and a year in bottle prior to release. It offers up scents of leather, cedar and vanilla, but it balances out the oak with dark fruit notes of cola, plum and spice. It's full-bodied and velvety on the palate, while hints of licorice emerge on the lengthy finish. This wine has clearly emerged as one of the top Liracs. (JC)" (11/2018) K&L Notes: An 88-acre estate, Château de Montfaucon sits just across the Rhône River from the esteemed...

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...

Just across the Rhône river from the esteemed vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, this 88-acre estate is owned and operated by Rodolphe de Pins, a UC Davis graduate and former member of the winemaking staff at Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe.

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A special cuvée for importer Eric Solomon, the 2015 Côtes du Rhône Reserve is a beauty that’s from a blend of 55% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 10% Carignan, and 5% each of Mourvèdre, 5% Cinsault. Kirsch liqueur, black cherries, ground herbs, and garrigue notes all emerge from this this ripe, sexy, opulent Côtes du Rhône. Balanced and layered on the palate, with some serious oomph, it’s a smoking value! Drink through 2022." (02/2018)

(JM)" (11/2018) K&L Notes: The Desmeures family of Domaine des Remizières are fourth-generation winemakers who originally sold grapes to the local cooperative. After completing their winery in 1974, the family began production at their new property. The estate is now managed by Phillipe Desmeures, his daught...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An unusual southern Rhône blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache, the 2015 Lirac offers bright, juicy acidity and medium-bodied richness. Giving up lots of peppery notes, olive and darker fruits, it has good concentration and impressive purity. (JC)" (12/2016)

2018 Domaine de Fondrèche Ventoux Rouge
Top Pick!
92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Ventoux Domaine is another winner that should be snatched up by savvy readers. A blend of 50% Grenache and 25% each of Syrah and Grenache, brought up in one-third each foudre, barrels, and concrete eggs, it offers a vivid bouquet of violet, ground pepper, bouquet garni, and both red and blue fruits. Medium to full-bodied, rounded, and polished, it has the fruit-forward charm of the vintage yet still packs ample concentration. Drink it over the coming 4-6 years (or more).

91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The two special cuvées include the 2016 Côtes du Rhône Villages Plan de Dieu Henrie Durieu, which has a terrific purity and elegance as well as ripe black cherries, plums, pepper, and spring flowers. While the Plan de Dieu can produce big, rustic wines, this is fresh, silky and complex." (08/2018)

2015 E. Guigal "La Mouline" Côte-Rôtie
Top Pick!
98-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "On another level, and unquestionably the best of the three vintages, the 2015 Côte Rôtie La Mouline sports an inky purple color as well as an off-the-charts bouquet of black currants, smoked herbs, spring flowers, gamey meats, and acacia flowers. Massively concentrated, opulent, and as sexy as wine gets, it reminds me of the 1978 La Mouline and has perfection written all over it. If you can afford it, this is a magical, legendary wine in the making that will keep for 4-5 decades." (12/2018) 99 points James Suckling: "A very ...

Alain Corcia founded his négociant company back in 1983.

The fruit for Chante Cigale's old-vine Côtes du Rhône comes from hand-harvested, 50-year-old vines in the Plan de Dieu, one of the finest lieux-dits in the CdR AOC. Composed of 70% Grenache, 20% Carignan, and 10% Syrah, the wine shows noble but restrained red fruit character along with notes of game and subtle spice. This is as serious as Côtes du Rhône AOC wine gets with the potential for aging up to 10 years in proper storage. It is ideal to pair with hearty country cuisine like Ratatouille, and it stands as one of the finest values in the store.

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of the 2015 and 2016 vintages, the NV Côtes du Rhône S M checks in as the same equal parts Grenache and Syrah raised in tank and barrel. A huge nose of cassis, ground black pepper, garrigue, and olive tapenade gives way to a ripe, rounded, medium to full-bodied effort that has good acidity, building tannin, a seamless, light texture, and a great finish. It's a singular wine that has a big kiss of Northern Rhône Syrah with a touch of the rounded, sexy, opulent style of the south. It's going to drink nicely for a decade." (0...

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...
