91 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and warm in feel, featuring blackberry and boysenberry puree flavors, supported by a graphite spine and carrying through an anise- and lavender-infused finish, all while the fruit easily keeps pace. Solid. (JM)" (10/2019) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: " Despite its massive body and alcohol, this luscious blend of 75% Grenache and 25% Mourvèdre maintains delightfully crisp blackberry flavors accented by hints of rose, violet and anise. It’s a rich, penetrating wine with silky, integrated tannins cushioning the finish. Drink ...

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...

93 points Wine Spectator: "Bright, with cherry, damson plum and raspberry coulis flavors streaming through, flanked by floral and rooibos tea hints and carrying through a racy, sanguine-tinged finish that is sneakily long. Well done. Best from 2020 through 2035. (JM)" (11/2019) K&L Notes: One of our most popular direct imports, the price-to-quality ratio we've found in these wines year after year is simply unbeatable.

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 ...

2017 Chateau Sixtine Châteauneuf-du-Pape
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...

99 points James Suckling: "This is a stunning Beaucastel. A classic! Has a superb array of fruit, ranging from red, through to blue, darker purple and black. Nuances of dark, stony minerals, spices, wild flowers and herbs. So fleshy. This has impeccable balance, super-silky tannins and an extraordinarily long finish. This has decades ahead of it. Drink or hold." (08/2018) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bottled only a week before my visit, I was blown away by how well Beaucastel's 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape was showing. It's full-bodied, creamy...

90 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Light gold-colored, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc offers a classic bouquet of Meyer lemons, tart peach, and spice. It's medium-bodied, with solid depth of fruit, nicely integrated acidity, and a clean finish. It's very much in the style of this fresher, more moderately concentrated vintage (for the whites) and ideal for drinking over the coming 3-5 years. The blend is 20% each of Grenache Blanc, Picpoul, Bourboulenc, Roussanne, and Clairette, brought up in a mix of vessels." (08/2019) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate...

2017 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Top Pick!
95 points Decanter: "At Beaucastel the Grenache and Cinsault are fermented in cement while the Syrah and Mourvèdre are fermented in foudre. The result features finely pixellated fruits of the forest on the nose, with a full-bodied but mightily fresh and lively palate. The Mourvèdre element is strong this year, bringing vibrancy and power. It's firmly savoury, very dry and dramatic. A very tannic year has produced a seriously structured Beaucastel for the long term. (MW)" (10/2018) 95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape is another sunny, b...

94 points Vinous: "Shimmering ruby-red. A highly expressive bouquet evokes candied red and dark berries, cola, smoky minerals and licorice, and a sexy floral note builds as the wine opens up. Sappy, penetrating and pure, offering palate-staining black raspberry, cherry pie, blood orange and lavender pastille flavors that put on weight and turn spicier with air. Delivers a compelling blend of richness and delicacy and finishes spicy, focused and very long, leaving floral and red fruit preserve notes behind. Once again, this bottling is, perhaps, the top '...

98 points James Suckling: "Impressive, complex array of wild cherries, raspberries, garrigue herbs, lightly spiced pastry and stony, chalky minerals. Super-fresh florals. The palate has superb texture, roundness, completeness, depth and detail. Powerful yet elegant with powdery tannins and essence-like red fruit. Super-fleshy, supple and dense core, then strong at the edges. Layer upon layer peels away on the finish. Resounding finesse and equilibrium, showing the full potential of the plateau La Crau. Drink or hold." (07/2018) 97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "...

91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The two special cuvées include the 2016 Côtes du Rhône Villages Plan de Dieu Henrie Durieu, which has a terrific purity and elegance as well as ripe black cherries, plums, pepper, and spring flowers. While the Plan de Dieu can produce big, rustic wines, this is fresh, silky and complex." (08/2018)

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...

It’s based on 80% Grenache and 10% Syrah and Mourvèdre brought up in foudre and cuve tronconique tanks. More concentrated as well as focused, it's medium to full-bodied, has brilliant concentration, ripe, present tannins, and a great finish. It's another awesome wine from this estate."

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The medium gold-colored 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc is based largely on one-third each of Clairette, Roussanne, and Grenache Blanc, with a splash of Bourboulenc. It has terrific depth and richness in its pineapple, brioche, honeysuckle, and salty mineral-like aromas and flavors. These carry to a medium-bodied white that has beautiful depth of fruit balanced by terrific acidity and tension. It's a beautiful white from this team."

96 points James Suckling: "Immediately a sense of darker fruit in this vintage. The nose has closed up a little since tasting in barrel. It has some reserved, sanguine notes and an essence-like, raspberry core. Some stones and chalk here, too. Very long and focused palate. The grenache is singing here. Dense but soft and supple tannins, the product of thick, healthy skins. Best from 2025." (10/2019) 94-95 points Vinous: "Full shimmering ruby. A complex, highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe boysenberry, Chambord and Asian spices, and a sexy floral nuance...

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another in a string of top vintages, Beaucastel's 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape was produced from Grenache yields of only eight hectoliters per hectare ("normal" is about 28 hectoliters per hectare, according to Marc Perrin). The final blend I was shown is almost candied in its fruity intensity of raspberries and cherries, yet it has a potent underpinning of more savory elements, like tapenade, grilled meat and dried spices. Full-bodied, with fine, silky tannins, this shows tremendous length, reverberating with hin...

Loganberry and bay leaf notes display burgeoning complexity, leading to a very full-bodied and flowing palate with highly polished red berry fruit. It has great finesse in a highly tailored style, with incredible silkiness to the tannins - they're plentiful but super-fine. Captivating and seductive.
