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 ...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Leading off the three Châteauneuf Du Papes, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Trois Sources comes from more sandy soils just across the road from the estate. It always shares more stylistic similarities with the Réserve and is more opulent, sexy, and fruit loaded compared to the Hauts-Lieux cuvée. This 2017 is spectacular, offering loads of black fruits, black licorice, ground herbs, violets, and some obvious loamy soil and mineral-like aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, expansive, and multi-dimensional, this is another singular wine...

93 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and packed, but well-focused, with a broad beam of linzer torte and boysenberry fruit backed by graphite, violet and pastis notes. Picks up plenty of muscle and toasted spice on the finish, showing lots of latent depth in reserve. Very solid. (JM)" (07/2012)
Price: $149.99



97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A brilliant showing, the ’05 Reine des Bois is still fantastically young and dense, showing blackberry, cassis, graphite, roasted herbs and smoke on the nose. There are hints of underlying garrigue and southern Rhône typicity and the wine sports serious depth and richness, all with edgy, focused energy. Full bodied, concentrated, balanced and very long, this needs another 5 to 7 years and then should drink beautifully over the following 20. Quickly becoming my favorite vintage from this producer. 97+" (08/2010) 97 points Robert ...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Hauts-Lieux comes from slightly higher elevation sites and includes more Mourvèdre than the Les Trois Source release. It’s pure, full-bodied, and incredibly structured, with a tight, backward style that’s going to benefit from bottle age. Showing a distinct salty minerality as well as loads of black and blue fruits, it reminds me of the 2015 yet with more elegance. Hide bottles for 4-5 years and enjoy over the following two decades. 96+" (08/2019) 94 points Decanter: "From three high-altitude par...

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Gigondas Classique Vieilles Vignes was scheduled to be bottled the week after my visit, so I tasted the final assemblage, which is 75% to 80% Grenache and the rest Mourvèdre. Scents of crushed stone, pepper and licorice lead the way, followed by intense notes of black cherries and tree bark. It's full-bodied, silky and long, with hints of chocolate that creep in on the finish. It looks suppler than I remember it being last year, and it's for the better. (JC)" (08/2019) 93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The ru...

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 ...

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "As always, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes has a touch more dark fruits, more concentration, and more structure, which makes it less approachable but more age-worthy. Blackcurrants, ground pepper, bouquet garni, crushed rocks, and garrigue notes all emerge from this structured, focused, yet ripe and beautifully textured Châteauneuf Du Pape that's going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age. 94+ *#10 Top 100 Wines of 2019*" (08/2019) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vi...

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...

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...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A bigger, richer, more concentrated wine than the ethereally textured Cuvee Chaupin, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvée Vieilles Vignes is unquestionably one of the wines of the vintage as well as one of the finest Chateauneuf du Papes ever made. Offering notes of cassis, roasted meats, beef blood and licorice, this heavenly 2007 is full-bodied, hugely concentrated and rich yet shows incredible purity, focus and precision, with no sensation of heaviness or weight. It’s still deep purple colored, with no signs of...

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. (JC)" (08/2018) 94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I always love this cuvée, and the 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Quartz offers a terrific perfume of black ras...

2017 Chateau Sixtine Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The only 2017 presented was the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Château Sixtine, which checks in as a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 20% Mourvèdre that spent a year in a mix of barrels, roughly 5% being new. Its deep purple hue gives way to a monster nose of pure black fruits, cured meat, pot roast-like nuances, and hints of chocolate. It's ripe, plush, and expansive on the palate, with full-bodied richness as well as sweet, polished tannins. With fabulous purity of fruit, no hard edges, and a great, great finish, this is unquesti...

Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Côtes Du Rhône By Roger Sabon is a forward, charming effort that has loads of black raspberry and blackberry fruits as well as notes of cured meats, spice, and pepper. It has beautiful fruit, medium-bodied, no hard edges, and loads of upfront charm. It's ideal for drinking over the coming 2-4 years." (08/2019) Wine Spectator: "Bright cherry and blackberry fruit melds with light savory and lavender notes through the fresh, open-knit finish. Moderate in scale, but showing good energy and persistence. Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. D...
Price: $14.99

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...

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Unquestionably the deepest, richest wine in the lineup, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Le Secret des Sabon offers sensational notes of blackberries, cassis, crushed rocks, graphite, and bouquet garni. Full-bodied, ultra-fine, seamless, and pure, it has more elegance and purity than the 2010 and is reminiscent of the 2001. It's a gorgeous, extraordinary, layered, seamless Châteauneuf-du-Pape to drink over the coming two decades or more." (08/2018) 97 points Wine Spectator: "Gorgeous, with warm ganache and steeped plum aromas enlive...

2016 Domaine La Bastide Saint Dominique "Les Hesperides" Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Top Pick!
95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I think even better, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Hesperides reminds me a great vintage of Beaucastel’s Hommage A Jacques Perrin. A blend of equal parts Mourvèdre and Grenache, all from the les Bédines lieu-dit (this is all sandy soils), it offers sensational notes of blueberries, plums, peppery herbs, licorice, and violets. Full-bodied, decadent and layered, with an incredible opulence that makes it almost impossible to resist, I suspect it will shut down shortly after bottling, yet emerge with 4-5 years of cellaring and k...

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 ...

95 points Vinous: "Bright violet color. Wildly complex scents of black raspberry, cherry compote, sassafras, allspice and licorice. Lush and palate-staining, with noteworthy intensity to its open-knit dark berry, spicecake and floral pastille flavors. Silky tannins come on late and meld smoothly with the deep, sappy fruit, which refuses to let go of the palate. I underestimated this powerful, vibrant wine last year. (JR)" (01/2012) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve des Deux Freres is probably the softest, mo...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Reserve le Clos du Caillou is a classic example of this cuvee. Made from 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvedre, aged all in demi-muid, it offers ample dark fruits, chocolate, bouquet garni and licorice in its full-bodied, supple, forward and elegantly styled profile. As with all of the 2012s here, the tannin is wonderfully ripe, the wine has solid concentration and everything is perfectly balanced. While it’s hard to resist already, it will be better with short-term cellaring and have 15+ ye...

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: " Shockingly, the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Combe des Fous is almost as good. From a vintage that flies under the radar, it boasts a classic Clos Saint Jean profile of kirsch liqueur, ripe black raspberries, ground herbs and sweet garrigue to go with full-bodied richness and depth on the palate. Always slightly more elegant and silky than the more powerful Deus ex Machina, this thrill ride of a Chateauneuf will continue to drink well for another decade. (JD)" (08/2014) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Win...


96 points James Suckling: "Astounding purity and depth. This wine emanates old vine concentration with deep raspberry and red plums, spicy complexity and a sappy, bracken-like edge. Powerful and elegant tannins, reminiscent of great Barolo! Drink from 2023." (08/2017) 94-96 points Vinous: "Lurid ruby-red. Sexy, highly perfumed raspberry, boysenberry and floral pastille scents are complemented by hints of musky rhubarb and Asian spices. Palate-staining sweet red and blue fruit and spicecake flavors show power as well as superb vivacity thanks to a spine...

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "One of the silkiest and most seamless wines of the vintage (and that I’ve ever had), the 2007 Domaine Pierre Usseglio & Fils Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée de mon Aïeul is 100% Grenache (90% from Les Serres Vineyard with the rest from La Crau and Esquirons) and exhibits drop dead gorgeous aromas of toasted spice, kirsch, raspberries, incense, roasted meat, licorice and who knows what else. Just complex, perfumed and intense with stunning purity and precision, the palate is utterly profound with a perfect, seamless, silky texture, amazi...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A killer wine as always, the 2018 Saint Joseph Les Granits Blanc reveals a medium gold color as well as powerful notes of white currants, toasted spices, brioche, quince, and crushed rock. With beautiful richness, medium to full body, no hard edges and a great finish, it's consistently one of the great whites in the appellation." (12/2019) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Ripe and round, the 2018 Saint-Joseph Les Granits Blanc is a lovely example of this cuvée, combining full-bodied richness with citrus zest and fres...

2001 Domaine du Clos du Caillou "Réserve le Clos du Caillou" Châteauneuf-du-Pape
New!
100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An off-the-charts effort that was one of my wines of the trip, the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Le Clos du Caillou is a spectacular effort that doesn’t put a foot wrong. Getting a bevy of incredible, spectacular, and a few other adjectives (i.e. expletives) in the notes, this rock-star-of-a-Chateauneuf boasts off-the-hook notes of blackcurrants, saddle leather, beef blood, pepper, spring flowers and licorice. Possessing full-bodied richness on the palate, with beautiful underlying structure and depth, this i...

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...

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A tank-aged blend of Clairette and Roussanne, the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc is medium to full-bodied, with a plump, appealing texture and modest flavors of pear and pineapple. It's a delicious, easy-drinking white Rhône to drink over the next few years, seemingly without the gravitas of some other recent vintages. (JC)" (09/2019) K&L Notes: Le Vieux Donjon is a staple producer in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, but what sets them apart is their concentration of extremely old-vines on their smallish, 18-hectare estate...

92 points Robert Parker: "TThe 2007 Nadal (50% Grenache, 40% Syrah, and 10% Mourvedre, all from vines over 70 years of age) is brilliant. Deep ruby/purple, with kirsch liqueur, licorice, spring flowers, and black raspberries, the wine is dense, medium to full-bodied, and despite being aged in small barrels, displays virtually no evidence of any wood. The freshness of the acids buttress this substantial, rich wine, which should drink well for 4-6 years. Both of these wines actually showed even better this year than they did last year." (10/09) 14.5% abv.

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...

93 points John Gilman: "For current consumption, the 1994 Chave has been one of my favorite vintages for the last few years. It is not yet ready, but the forward and opulent fruit of this vintage have allowed the wine to drink well since its release. This bottle, like the last few, was superb, soaring from the glass with scents of crushed red and black raspberries, black pepper, grilled venison, hot stones, medicinal syrah tones, a bit of tar, herbs and a touch of toasty new oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and complex, with flawless bala...

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...


91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Côtes du Rhône Samorens Blanc checks in as a mix of Roussanne, Viognier and Clairette brought up in stainless steel. It's fresh, vibrant, and crisp, yet has plenty of heft in its peach, tangerine, and citrus aromas and flavors. With bright acidity, outstanding balance, and a great finish, drink it over the coming 2-3 years." (08/2018) James Suckling: "Spiced-apple, pear and green-melon aromas lead to a palate that has straightforward, crunchy, bright, crisp texture. Nice and fresh, simple white for immediate drinking." ...

96 points James Suckling: "Aromas of dried roses, garrigue herbs and red fruit with terrific purity and freshness. Lithe raspberries on the bright, even and crisp palate. Fabulous, fresh acidity, depth, length and power here. A kick of bitter herbs on the finish. Classic. Drink or hold. " (07/2018) 93-95 points Vinous: "(raised in concrete tanks) Brilliant ruby. Powerful, mineral-accented aromas of ripe red berries, cherry pit, potpourri and musky rhubarb, backed by a hint of Asian spices. Sweet, concentrated and seamless in texture, offering intense r...

91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "More golden fruits, Meyer lemon, and some exotic tangerine notes, as well as green almonds, emerge from the 2017 Saint-Péray Le Mialan, which had 20% of the blend brought up in demi-muids. 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. (JD)" (12/2018) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Features lemon and pineapple gelée flavors darting through, followed by pear and melon notes, with a bright verbena streak on the lightly toasted finish. (JM)...

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...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "...the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape is a beautiful, elegant wine that also makes the most of this terrific vintage. Deep, rich, yet fabulously pure notes of blackcurrants, ground pepper, garrigue, and crushed flowers all emerge from the glass, followed by medium to full body, a stacked mid-palate, flawless balance, and a great, great finish. It's still backward and holding things a little close to its vest, yet it's a magical wine in the making. Give bottles 3-5 years of cellaring (although it's far from unapproachable today) and enjo...

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The sensational 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Barbe Rac comes from a sandy clay terroir located in the western portion of the appellation. A massive, deep, full-bodied wine, with a huge nose of blueberry liqueur, crushed rock, violets, and garrigue, it has no hard edges, a thick, unctuous texture, sweet tannin, and a finish that just won’t quit. It’s the greatest vintage of this wine ever made (surpassing the 2007) and will be a candidate for perfection in a few years and keep for 15-20 years." (08/2018) 94 points Vinous: "Glistening...

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Bottled at the same time, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Vieilles Vignes gives up more cassis, tapenade, underbrush, cured meats, and earth, and it’s a slightly more dense, backward wine compared to the Chaupin. Full-bodied and beautifully concentrated, with tons of structure, it stays fresh and elegant, has sweet tannins, and a blockbuster finish. It's an incredible, borderline perfect wine from this estate that will keep for two decades or more." (08/2018) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Time will tell if this wi...

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 ...

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Roasted red fruits and milk chocolate on the nose. Lush and dense in the mouth, with leather, coffee, dark chocolate and garrigue flavors, a lightly animal syrah character, and a strong oak component. Finishes fat and lush, with strong roasted wood tones. Quite Languedoc in style. (ST)" (01/2001)

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another perfect wine from this brilliant estate is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, which matches the otherworldly 2007. A classic blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah brought up all in old foudre, this beauty's deep purple color is followed by a mammoth bouquet of kirsch liqueur, black currants, blueberries, Asian spices, and garrigue. Full-bodied, concentrated, and powerful, it nevertheless is as graceful as a ballerina on the palate and has ultra-fine tannins, a silky, seamless texture, and a finish that just won't ...

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...
