2017 Guy Farge "Terroir de Granit" Saint-Joseph

95 points Decanter: "Very ripe liquorice, pepper, olive and black fruit nose. The palate is dense, fruity, tight and focused with saline tannins and a powerful, driving and grippy finish. Real terroir expression here. (DWWA 2019)" (05/2019) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Saint Joseph Terroir de Granit lacks some of the vibrant raspberry notes found in Farge's Passion de Terrasses, but it looks virtually equivalent in overall quality. Black olives and black cherries pick up complex herbal-stemmy notes on the nose, while the full-b ...

2017 Domaine des Rémizières Crozes-Hermitage

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 ...

2017 Pierre Gonon Saint-Joseph Rouge (Pre-Arrival)

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. Drinking Window 2021 - 2030. (MW) " (10/2018) 92-94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Saint Joseph is deeper and richer, with notes of blackberries ...

2017 Guy Farge "Passion de Terrasse" Saint-Joseph

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.

2017 Vincent Paris Selection Crozes-Hermitage

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 ...

2017 Domaine Courbis "Champelrose" Cornas (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This year, I preferred the Champelrose (which sees less new oak) to the les Eygats. The 2017 Cornas Champelrose is herbal and complex, with suggestions of orange zest and licorice accenting plummy fruit. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, it's supple, dense and powerful, with a long finish.(JC)" (12/2018) 93-94 points Vinous: "Inky ruby color.

2017 Rene Rostaing "Cote Blonde" Côte-Rôtie (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Decanter: "The winemaking at Domaine Rostaing is now in the hands of René's son Pierre, and it follows the same format for all the Côte-Rôties: four weeks in tank, 18 months in mostly old oak, natural yeasts, and as many stems as possible. A certain spice and perfume is contained within a dark, brooding mass, which has really fragrant, lifted, sweet berry fruit. There's considerable tangy berry acidity and blackberry-skin tannins, and it shows a good sense of refinement despite the remarkably powerful sinew. A very long, well balanced finish. G ...

2017 Clos Bellane "Petite Bellane" Côtes du Rhône-Villages

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 ...

2017 Domaine Paul Jaboulet Aîné "Domaine de Thalabert" Crozes-Hermitage (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "From a scorcher of a vintage that had tiny yields, the 2017 Crozes Hermitage Domaine De Thalabert offers a deep purple color as well as a classic Thalabert bouquet of black fruits, black olive, iodine, and peppery herbs. It’s a rich, rounded, sumptuous beauty that has plenty of sweet fruit, moderate tannins, and a great finish. It’s not going to match the 2015, but it’s a rocking wine I’d be thrilled to drink."

2017 M. Chapoutier "L'Ermite" Ermitage Rouge (Pre-Arrival)

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 ...

2017 Rene Rostaing "La Landonne" Côte-Rôtie (Pre-Arrival)

Full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, and structured, this is one of the few 2017s that’s going to really demand cellaring. " (12/2018) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Cote Rotie la Landonne looks a bit simple at the moment, but it's early days.

2017 Domaine Belle Hermitage Rouge (Pre-Arrival)

Velvety, intense and long, it should be approachable relatively young yet have the stuffing to age for two decades. (JC)" (10/2018)

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."

Thrilling crème de cassis, blueberry, and blackberry fruit notes give way to more ground pepper, granite-like minerality and liquid violet notes with time in the glass.
