2017 Domaine des Rémizières "Cuvée Christophe" Crozes-Hermitage
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 Domaine des Rémizières Crozes-Hermitage
Top Pick!
90 points Wine Spectator: "A bright, racy style, with a beam of violet-infused cassis and cherry fruit flavors laced with a subtle chalky spine. Offers a deliciously unencumbered finish. Drink now through 2020. 2,500 cases made, 400 cases imported. (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...

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 ...

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...

2017 Domaine des Remizières St-Joseph
Top Pick!
92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Aging in 30% new barriques, the 2017 Saint Joseph looks like a sexier, more approachable repeat of the 2015. It's dark and super ripe, with notes of cracked pepper and licorice accenting pristine blueberry flavors. Full-bodied and creamy-textured, it remains fresh, vibrant and long on the finish. (JC)" (12/2018) 91-93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Saint Joseph was brought up in 30% new oak, with the balance in once-used barrels. This deep purple-hued effort has some obvious oak as well as deep, ripe black fr...

This is 100% Syrah from the southern Rhone that is aged six months in neutral barrels and bottled without filtering.
Price: $29.99

93 points James Suckling: "This has some complex, smoked-meat aromas with an array of fragrant spices and peppery notes, as well as ripe, dark berries. The palate is powerful and yet elegant. This delivers a lot of dark-berry flavor in a fresh, sleek and powerful frame." (07/2018) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Inviting, with a core of warm raspberry, fig and blackberry compote flavors inlaid liberally with roasted apple wood and anise notes. Shows brambly grip through the finish. (JM)" (09/2018) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Aged in second f...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The finest vintage to date, better even than the stellar 2010, the 2015 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine De Thalabert is a gorgeous, deep, layered, and incredibly satisfying Crozes. Blackcurrants, olive tapenade, truffles and earthy notes all emerge from this full-bodied, gorgeously textured and seamless 2015. With fine tannin and no hard edge, it can be drunk today or cellaring for 15-20 years." (01/2018) 94 points Vinous: "Inky ruby. Suave, mineral-accented scents of ripe blueberry, black currant and Indian spices, along with a slowly...

A native of the Cornas appellation, Vincent Paris inherited most of his vines from his grandfather and leases other blocks from an uncle for a total of about 8 hectares. Paris has built upon his family's winemaking tradition to make a name for himself as a talented winemaker through carefully managing vineyard yields, fermenting longer and at cooler temperatures and using mostly neutral oak. The Crozes-Hermitage comes from fruit selected by Vincent from a long-time organic grower in Crozes. In multiple parcels, varied exposure, the vines average 30 years...

95 points Decanter: "Only 10% of grapes for this wine were destemmed. It has fresh, sylvan aromas, and is lush in texture with a searching, herbal finish. There is inky concentration to the fruit, while fibrous tannins coat the mouth to give considerable texture and relief. It's wild, almost rustic, and buzzes with life. (MW)" (10/2017) 95 points James Suckling: "Very spicy, complex and alluring aromas of ripe, red cherries, red plums and pomegranate with a wealth of woody spices and a fragrant, peppery edge. The palate is smooth and layered. There’s a...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "An old vine Syrah-dominated blend, brought up all in foudre, the 2017 Ventoux Divergent offers extraordinary notes of black fruits, bacon fat, camphor, and garrigue. Seeming to have one foot in the Northern Rhône and one in the Southern Rhône, it’s a ripe, layered, multi-dimensional Syrah that has a terrific mid-palate, a great texture, and the structure to benefit from a year or two of bottle age and evolve gracefully for over a decade." (08/2019) 92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From Syrah planted in 1955, the 2017...

97-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The most tannic of the 'big three' bottlings this year, the 2018 Côte Rôtie la Côte Blonde features elegant hints of mixed herbs entwined around bold boysenberry fruit. It's medium to full-bodied, with plentiful fine-grained tannins that firm up on the long finish. Embryonic, but oh so promising, it should blossom in another five years or so. (JC)" (12/2019) 98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Just about perfection in a glass, the 2017 Côte Rôtie Côte Blonde is more plush and sexy compared to the La Landonne and has a b...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A wine I’ve been lucky enough to have numerous times recently, the 2003 Cote Rotie Chateau d’Ampuis is an off-the-hook effort that gives up plenty of plum sauce, smoked duck, licorice, tar, vanilla bean and violet aromas and flavors. Never acidified, it has awesome freshness and focus to go with full-bodied richness, a hedonistic texture and a blockbuster-styled finish. While it’s not for those craving delicate-styled aromas and textures, I think it’s a gorgeous effort that will continue to drink nicely over the ...

95 points Decanter: "A fairly straightforward year for the Gonon brothers despite fairly low yields of 28hl/ha. The 2017 is rich and generous in fruit and ripe tannins, but is so well held together and ushered into shape. It's densely coloured, with beautifully fresh herb aromas and super-fresh, pure blackberries on the tongue. It has plenty of relief and texture, with crisp acidity and a long, mineral finish. (MW)" (10/2018) 94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Saint Joseph showed beautifully and has a slightly more elegant yet sunny profile compared to t...

2015 E. Guigal Côte-Rôtie "Brune et Blonde" (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
96 points Wine Spectator: "Dark and winey, this is youthfully tight, with a core of intense black cherry and black currant preserve flavors, encased within layers of olive, singed alder, juniper and iron. Very focused and driven through the finish. Cellar for maximum effect. (JM)" (09/2019) 94 points Vinous: "Glass-staining ruby. Powerful black/blue fruit, floral pastille, cola, olive and incense aromas pick up a smoky mineral nuance as the wine opens up. Fleshy and expansive in the mouth, offering intense, spice- and smoke-inflected black raspberry, b...

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More closed than when I tasted it earlier this year, the 2010 Cote Rotie Chateau d’Ampuis is an incredible effort that’s made from 93% Syrah and 7% Viognier. Coming from the estate’s top sites and aged 38 months in new oak, it has no problem standing beside the top three single-vineyard releases. Crème de cassis, vanilla bean, smoked meats and licorice all flow to a full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, structured Cote Rotie that needs another 5-6 years of bottle age, but will keep for 2-3 decades. (JD)" (12/201...

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...

Robert Parker writes: "Chapoutier's aim is to produce an exceptionally perfumed, soft, elegant cuvee of Cote Rotie, and a luxury cuvee that takes Cote Rotie's black-raspberry, exotic fruitiness and elegance to the limits of intensity, a la Marcel Guigal's La Mouline."
Price: $269.99

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "From the deeper soils at the bottom of the Le Méal lieu-dit, the 2016 Ermitage Les Gréffieux was all destemmed and saw its normal 18 months in a mix of Burgundy barrels and demi-muids, with just 25% being new. This is a rich, powerful, black-fruited expression of this cuvée, offering up tons of blackcurrants, blackberries, smoked earth, chocolate, and spice. Inky colored, full-bodied, sensationally concentrated, and opulent on the palate, it's a killer bottle of wine that can be drunk today or cellared for 25 years or more." (12/2...




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...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Cornas Champelrose comes from granite soils and was brought up in 25% new French oak. Its deep purple color is followed by plenty of classic granite character in its damp earth, crushed rock, gravelly minerality, liquid violet, and ripe blue fruits. Medium to full-bodied, with beautiful purity, no hard edges, and a great, great finish, this is a Cornas readers should snatch up." (12/2019) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This year, I preferred the Champelrose (which sees less new oak) to the les Eygats. The ...

2003 Dumien-Serrette "Patou" Cornas
New!
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It appears some artificial acidulation was done to the 2003 Cornas since the vintage did not produce wines with this much tart acidity. Once past the high acid, the 2003 reveals pleasant, sweet raspberry and blueberry notes, an elegant attack, and a narrow finish. (RP)" (02/2006)
Price: $49.99

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: " Looking first at his Crozes Hermitage, and a wine that will stand toe to toe with any number of Hermitages, the 2003 Crozes Hermitage Les Varonniers offers thrilling black fruits, saddle leather, spice and cured meat-like qualities to go with a sexy, full-bodied, and layered profile on the palate. It will continue to evolve gracefully, but there’s no reason to delay gratification and I’d enjoy this fabulous Syrah over the coming couple of years. (JD)" (04/2014) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Very ripe, but racy t...

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...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: " *Cellar Selection* A big step up from Jaboulet’s La Petite Chapelle, this is on a par with some of Jaboulet’s past efforts. It’s richly concentrated, yet nuanced, with notes of blood and mineral added to ripe cassis fruit and accented by hints of vanilla and spice. The tannins form an almost creamy texture in the mouth, and the finish lingers a good long time. Drink 2012–2025. " (09/2007) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Very juicy, with nice drive to the black currant and boysenberry fruit, which is pushed by dark plum sauce, ...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The inky colored 2017 Ermitage Le Pavillon comes from the biggest, baddest part of Hermitage and was brought up all in 20-25% new French oak barrels. Huge crème de cassis, crushed flowers, graphite, and liquid rock notes all dominate the bouquet, and this massively rich, powerful, yet pure and classic Hermitage builds incrementally on the palate, has a wealth of tannins, flawless balance, and a great finish. Showing the sexy, expressive style of the vintage, it has some upfront charm..." (12/2019) 99 points Robert Parker's Wine...


98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The star of the show in 2013 is the 2013 Ermitage le Pavillon. Coming from the west and eastern edges of the Bessards lieu-dit and aged in 30% new French oak, its sensational black/blue color is followed by the awesome bouquet of cassis, smoked earth, graphite and caramelized meats that could come from no other terroir in the world. Full-bodied, massive, dense, sexy and with a liquid rock-like character that comes out with time in the glass, it has sweet tannin and a blockbuster finish that keeps you coming back ...


93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the treats when tasting through the profound Côte Rôties made by Marcel Guigal was the opportunity to taste all of the bottled 1995's. Reviewed in previous issues, they are even better from bottle than they were during their upbringing (a characteristic of many Guigal wines). The 1995 Côte Rôtie Château d'Ampuis is the stuff of legends and is every bit as compelling as readers might expect. This single vineyard wine will have at least 15 years of longevity.(RMP)" (10/1999) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's Inte...

92 points Vinous: "Brilliant magenta. Expansive scents of fresh blackberry and boysenberry are complicated by suggestions of cracked pepper, olive and pungent flowers. Sappy, appealingly sweet dark berry preserve and cherry flavors show sharp delineation and spice and mineral qualities that build with air. Finishes with strong, energetic cut, well-knit tannins and lingering sweetness. (JR)" (09/2019) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Pure and refined, with alluring cherry and damson plum fruit, lined with violet and sandalwood notes and showing subtle chalky ...

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...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Always the earliest-ripening portion of the Chapoutier holdings on the Hermitage hill, the 2017 Ermitage le Méal is a complete standout. Crème de framboise notes remain fresh and lively throughout, joined by hints of blueberry, baking spices and vanilla, while the tannins are silky, the mouthfeel generous and the overall impression is one of great seductiveness and elegance. (JC)" (12/2019) 97 points Decanter: "Pure blackberry: the fruit, the bush and the leaf. It displays an intriguing spiciness too that's no...

96-98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Scheduled to be bottled just after this visit, the 2015 Côte Rôtie Château D'Ampuis reveals a deep ruby/purple color as well as an extraordinary bouquet of smoked black fruits, caramelized blackcurrants, leady herbs, ground pepper, and earth. It's deep, rich, massively concentrated, and a powerhouse of a wine that’s going to need bottle age, but wow, what a wine! The big news at the Guigal estate is the purchase of Domaine de Nalys in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The family has always wanted an estate in the South, and Nalys is an unr...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The top cuvée from Delas is the 2015 Hermitage Les Bessards, and it's always 100% Syrah from the steep, broken granite soils of the Bessards lieu-dit. Aged 18 months in 30% new barrels, its purple/plum color is followed by a huge nose of blackcurrants, graphite, toasted spice, crushed rocks and saddle leather. Powerful, massively concentrated, and tannic, it has a broad, expansive, heavenly texture, a thick mid-palate (you could almost use a fork for this beauty), and a great finish. Despite the richness level, it stays balanced ...


2017 M. Chapoutier "L'Ermite" Ermitage Rouge (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
100 points Decanter: "Compelling fragrance despite its youth, remarkably fruity and open for a L’Ermite wine at this stage: lavender, orange, mint and fresh blackberry. Medium to full bodied, rich and mouth-coating yet sublimely fresh. Sprightly, saline tannins, super-fine but weighty. Very well balanced, with juicy acidity and hugely long. Serious thrust and soaring energy, this is white-knuckle stuff. This was made from 70-year-old Syrah vines planted on a high bank of decomposed granite and granitic sands, lieu-dit L’Ermite. Yields of 22 hl/ha. Comple...

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...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The greatest wines Chave has produced since 2003 are the two cuvees of 2009 Hermitage. The 2009 Hermitage exhibits a black/purple color along with a sumptuous nose of roasted meats, ground pepper, black currants, blackberry jam, and subtle smoke and licorice. The extraordinary bouquet is followed by a wine of extravagant intensity as well as tremendous focus and precision. While not as powerful as the blockbuster 2003, the amazing 2009 may turn out to be a modern day version of their magnificent 1990 (which is d...

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Aged 36 months in new oak, the colossal 2015 Hermitage Ex Voto is up with the finest vintages of this cuvée to date and is certainly in the same ballpark as the 2009 and 2010. This deep, powerful, muscular Hermitage boasts a saturated purple color to go with its huge nose of crème de cassis, freshly crushed rocks, incense, charcoal, and spring flowers. Full-bodied, with good acidity and huge richness and density, it requires 5-7 years of cellaring and should drink well for 40+ years. (JD)" (12/2018) 96 points Robert Parker's Win...

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Farge has done well in 2017. Exhibit A is this magnificent sample from the Reynard lieu-dit. The 2017 Cornas Reynard takes scents of crushed stone, violets, tea, black raspberries and blueberries and condenses them down into a rich, full-bodied wine that's intense and complex, featuring dusty tannins and hints of espresso and silk on the long finish. (JC)" (12/2018) 96 points Decanter: "Thomas Farge took over the estate from his father earlier in 2018. This is the first vintage of a new special cuvée by this...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I loved the 2017 Côte Rôtie La Landonne, a magical expression of the Grand Cru terroir. Deep purple-hued with killer notes of black raspberries, bacon fat, ground herbs, and obvious minerality, this beauty is full-bodied, has ultra-fine tannins, a deep, concentrated mid-palate, and a finish that won’t quit. Do your best to hold bottles for 4-5 years. 97+" (12/2019) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In tank and awaiting bottling when I tasted it, the 2017 Côte Rôtie la Landonne has smoothed out and added complexity in ...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Côte Rôtie Le Viallière isn’t part of the single vineyard boxed set and will be released on its own. After tasting it, I certainly understand why as it’s an incredible wine. Possessing awesome purity in its blackberry, blackcurrants, charcoal, meat, and dried flower aromatics, it’s full-bodied, concentrated, and sexy, yet also perfectly balanced, seamless and elegant. It’s a complete, classic Côte Rôtie that will benefit from 3-4 years of cellaring and keep for two decades." (01/2018) 96 points Wine Spectator: "Features...

97 points James Suckling: "The 2017 Hermitage is another gorgeous 2017 from this domaine. Revealing a deep purple hue as well as knockout notes of crème de cassis, liquid rock-like minerality, toasted spice, and graphite, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a deep, layered mid-palate, and a great, great finish. It's young and primordial, yet still offers pleasure due to its balance and purity. Do your best to hide bottles for 4-5 years and enjoy over the following two decades. This wine comes from the more limestone and sandy portions of Hermit...

2017 Guy Farge "Harmonie" Cornas
Top Pick!
92-94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Also not destemmed, the 2017 Cornas Harmonie was brought up in used barrels and is the classic Cornas cuvée of the estate. Its saturated purple color is followed by textbook notes of blackberries, plums, green olives, violets, and chocolate. It's a fleshy, full-bodied, textured barrel sample that has loads to love." (12/2018) 93 points Decanter: "From 30-year-old vines planted on granite, with a hand-picked yield of just 22hl/ha. It's 100% whole-bunch fermented, and matured in 5-year-old 400l oak barrels for 12 months. Detail...

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.
