2017 Domaine de l'Amandine Côtes du Rhône-Villages Seguret
Top Pick!
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This estate is emerging as one of the more interesting producers of Séguret. The 2017 Cotes du Rhone Villages Seguret, a cement-aged 60-40 blend of Syrah and Grenache, boasts floral, garrigue-like notes, plus ripe cherries and stone fruit. Full-bodied, lush and downright sexy, it's packed with fruit yet remains silky, fresh and long on the finish. (JC)" (11/2018) K&L Notes: L'Amandine was established in 1968 by Jean-Pierre Verdeau who followed the tradition of winemaking in his family. Born in the region, Jean-...

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.

Costières de Nîmes is at the southernmost part of the Rhône Valley, on the opposite bank from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. One of our best new finds is Château de l'Ermitage, which produces three terrific values with eminent drinkability. The estate's history traces back to the 12th century when the winery produced wine for the pilgrims of St-Jacques de Compostelle who were traveling the Santiago de Compostela. The property is now owned by the Castillon family, and today Michel and his son Jerome manage the vineyards and winemaking. The "Victor" is named for the...

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...

90 points Wine Enthusiast: " Crisp blackberry and plum flavors are edged by earthen nuances of bramble and forest floor in this full-bodied blend of 75% Grenache and 25% Syrah. It’s juicy but briskly concentrated, framed by ripe, integrated tannins. Enjoy this mouthfilling but easy-quaffing red while it’s young. (AI)" (05/2020) Wine Spectator: "Fresh and direct, with a violet and lilac frame around a core of cherry and cassis flavors, all carried by a warm stone note on the finish.

Smooth and fluid with some warmth at the finish. Grenache, syrah, cinsault and mourvedre. From organically grown grapes. Drink now. " (10/2019) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A complex blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 15% Cinsault and 5% Mourvèdre, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone Villages Sablet is wonderfully creamy and plush, with waves of ripe cherries and berries accented by hints of...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Black raspberries, blueberries, scorched earth and roasted garrigue, with just a hint of oak, all emerge from this 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée des Générations Gaston-Philippe, and it's another smoking good 2015 from this team. Full-bodied, concentrated, rich and textured, it has the fruit to drink nicely today, yet will have two decades of overall longevity. The blend is 40% Grenache and 30% each of Mourvèdre and Syrah that was destemmed and aged 12 months in new French oak. There are just under 600 cases produced. 95+" (10/201...

Wine Spectator: "Bold cherry and strawberry fruit flavors are focused and fresh in this rosé, with a racy tobacco streak on the finish. A rosé for food and even fall. (JM)" (08/2019) K&L Notes: Rejoice Tavel! In a time when very high quality rosés line our shelves, when pink wines from Spain, the US, South Africa, Italy, and all over France are finally getting some much-deserved attention, we must give Tavel its special due. This is the original dedicated rosé appellation. In fact, so good is the fabled rosé from Tavel, that by law no other sort of win...

2018 Domaine des Girasols Côtes du Rhône-Villages Rosé (Previously $15) (Previously $15)
Top Pick!
It's never too late for the latest vintage of Côtes du Rhône rosé! Domaine des Girasols' 17 hectares of gnarled, old-vine Grenache are found on a rocky, hillside vineyard protected from the Mistral winds on terraces and slopes with clay, calcareous soils covered with rounded stones (much liked the famed hot rocks of Châteauneuf-du-Pape). The reds made from these grapes are full-bodied, concentrated rich and burly wines with black fruit flavors, spice and plenty of garrigue. The rosè is a lighter, fresher version of the reds, with pink fruit flavors (you ...

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).

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.

Raised exclusively in concrete vats and foudres, it's a juicy, mouthwatering mixed bowl of blueberries and cherries that should please most palates. Medium to full-bodied, it features a plump, appealing texture and silky tannins. Despite pumping up the blend with other varieties, the shortage of Grenache this year means that production was ...
