2017 Domaine de Verquière Côtes-du-Rhône

The Verquière estate has been passed down from father to son for many generations and is now managed by brothers Romain and 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 Pierre Gonon Saint-Joseph Rouge (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Vinous: "Inky ruby. An intensely perfumed bouquet evokes fresh, mineral-accented black and blue fruits, star anise and violet, backed by a hint of olive. Juicy, palate-staining dark berry flavors are complemented by suave floral pastille and spicecake qualities that build steadily with air. Closes with superb clarity and gentle tannic grip, leaving lively floral and blueberry notes behind.(JR)" (06/2018) 95 points Decanter: "A fairly straightforward year for the Gonon brothers despite fairly low yields of 28hl/ha.

2017 Domaine de Fondrèche Ventoux Rouge

91-93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Cassis, blackberries, violets, and an undeniable minerality all emerge from the 2017 Ventoux Domaine, which is seamless and incredibly well balanced on the palate. Pure, layered, and fabulously textured, I suspect it will be a smoking value on release." (08/2018) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted from tank, the 2017 Ventoux Rouge is a promising blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 20% Mourvèdre, with the Mourvèdre the only component that aged in barrel.

2017 Comte Louis de Clermont-Tonnerre (Alain Corcia) Ventoux Vieilles Vignes

Alain Corcia founded his negociant company back in 1983. Originally focused on bottling Burgundy, they expanded their grower relationships to include wines from the Rhone, Bordeaux and even Champagne. Our relationship with Alain goes back over three decades and he and his wife Patricia have supplied us with some of our greatest values from their respective regions. As a negociant, Alain is very hands on with the wines, making each one in its home region and choosing not to blend across appellations, all the better to reflect each wine's true terroir. ...

2017 Cicada by Chante Cigale Vin de France (Previously $11)

Chante Cigale means singing cicada (a type of grasshopper/cricket), and the Cicada red is their early-drinking, everyday Grenache-Carignan blend. The property has been in the family since the 19th century and is currently run by Alexandre Favier, who assumed the reins at the ripe old age of 20. The domaine is planted to 40 hectares of red varietals and 5 hectares of white varietals spread across 45 different parcels throughout the appellation.

2017 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "While it doesn't match the 2016, 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 ...

2017 Domaine Remi Niero "Chery" Condrieu (Pre-Arrival)

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 ...

2017 Domaine Belle Hermitage Rouge (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A barrel sample of the domaine's 2017 Hermitage suggests it will be another strong vintage. Violets, pencil shavings, purple raspberries and baking spices all come together in a whirl of richness. Velvety, intense and long, it should be approachable relatively young yet have the stuffing to age for two decades. (JC)" (10/2018)

2017 M. Chapoutier "Les Granits" Saint-Joseph (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Saint Joseph Les Granits is a step up, with lots of currants and blackberry fruits, scorched earth, gravelly minerality, and leather aromas and flavors. It's deep, rich, and powerful, with ripe yet present tannins, a stacked mid-palate, and a great finish. Completely destemmed and brought up in a mix of Burgundy barrels and demi-muids (25% being new), this cuvée is, year in year out, one of the standouts in the appellation, and the 2017 will be no exception." (12/2018) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The ...

2017 Roger Sabon "Réserve" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sabon's 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve should be a stellar wine worthy of cellaring when it's released. The sample I was shown displayed gorgeous red fruit aromas of raspberries and strawberries allied to darker notes of plum and chocolate. This full-bodied, richly concentrated wine is packed and stacked, loaded with ripe tannins that should guarantee a long life. (JC)" (08/2018) 95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Réserve is largely in the same ballpark and has terrific notes of blackberr ...

2017 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "Immediately a sense of darker fruit in this vintage. Some stony, chalky elements, as well as dried violets and roses. Very compelling, fleshy palate with powerful black fruit and plums and thick, but smooth tannins that will carry it in the cellar. Barrel sample." (07/2018) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Coming from the La Crau lieu-dit, VT's 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape La Crau looks to be another excellent vintage. The aromas are floral and fresh, suggesting roses, tea, raspberries and orange zest. The palate i ...

2017 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne "Lieu-Dit Clavin" Cotes-du-Rhone (Pre-Arrival)

92-94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "From a hot, dry year, the 2017 Côtes du Rhône Lieu-Dit Clavin comes from old Grenache vines planted in the sandy/clay around the estate, which are just a stone’s throw from where the Châteauneuf-du-Papes come from. One of the best Côtes du Rhône in just about every vintage, this beauty offers a rounded, sexy, medium to full-bodied style as well as terrific notes of blackberries, violets, and licorice. I love its purity, it shows more and more floral character with time in the glass and is going to be a great wine that will keep ...
