2009 Clos du Mont Olivet "Cuvée du Papet" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Needing more patience, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Papet (75% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre and the balance Syrah aged in foudre) comes from the estate’s oldest vines planted in such famous sites as Mont Olivet and Bois Dauphin. Usually about 1,000 cases are produced and the 2009, which tops the scales at 15.5% alcohol, is brilliant. A gorgeously aromatic bouquet of dark fruits, kirsch, underbrush, raspberries, licorice, spice box and pepper soars from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-tinged wine. Opulent a ...

2016 Xavier Vignon "Cuvée Anonyme" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Anonyme is the flagship and is mostly Grenache that was sourced from numerous terroirs throughout Châteauneuf-du-Pape and brought up in a mix of tank and barrels (some new). It offers a rocking bouquet of black raspberries, blueberries, lavender, Asian spices, and graphite. Like all of Xavier's 2016s, it has purity, freshness, and richness, yet still packs ample richness and depth. Give this full-bodied, elegant red another few years, and it will keep for a decade. 95+" (08/2018) 95 points Robe ...

2016 Domaine Durieu Châteauneuf-du-Pape

It shows lovely cherry-raspberry fruit aromas, ample weight and richness on the palate and a creamy texture. The tannins are supple, and the finish is long, picking up hints of cola and dried spices. A solid choice for drinking over the next decade. (JC)" (10/2018) 89-91 points Vinous: "Deep red. Ripe red berries, succulent herbs and pungent flowers on the high-pitched ...

2017 Le Clos du Caillou "Les Safres" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Decanter: "Sourced from lieu-dit Les Bédines, the fruit is destemmed and fermented in concrete, then matured 75% in foudre and 25% in demi-muid. 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.

2015 Chimère (Sine Qua Non) Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L)

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Chimère is a selection of Mourvèdre made by the Maurel brothers of Clos Saint Jean, oenologist Philippe Cambie, and Sine Qua Non genius Manfred Krankl. I believe there’s a touch of Grenache in the blend, as well as some Clairette and other varieties, but the bulk of this cuvée comes from the famed la Crau lieu-dit and is brought up all in demi-muids. It offers a beautiful perfume of sweet kirsch and blueberry fruit intermixed with loads of licorice, sweet spice, violets, and crushed rocks. Full-bodied, ...

Spice strawberries, kirsch, dried herbs, flowers, and ample sandy, stony notes all emerge from this fleshy, medium to full-bodied, structured wine that has the classic weightless texture of the estate.

It’s almost too good and certainly not far behind the Pure cuvée. A blend of 62% Grenache, 18% Mourvèdre, and the rest Cinsault, Syrah, Vaccarèse, and Clairette Rose, brought up in foudre and demi-muid, it sports a head-turning bouquet of kirsch liqueur, blackberries, crushed herbs, and pepper.

Sporting a deep purple color as well as a huge perfume of blackberries, black raspberries, garrigue, crushed flowers, and exotic spices, it hits the palate with a wealth of fruit, a stacked mid-palate, awesome purity of fruit, and a finish that won’t quit.

I've drunk through my fair share of bottles of this over the past few years. It has never shut down and has always shown well. A ripe, forward and sexy wine, it has lots of kirsch, garrigue, exotic spice and floral notes to go with a ripe, concentrated feel on the palate.

I don’t think it hits the heights of the 2010, 2007 or 2001, but it’s still a singular expression of Grenache that could come from nowhere else, and is distinctly different from the three prior Châteauneufs.

93 points Vinous: "(raised in a combination of concrete tanks and old foudres and barriques): Vivid red. Intense red fruit and floral scents are complicated by suggestions of allspice, smoky minerals and garrigue. Vibrant raspberry and bitter cherry flavors show superb clarity and very good depth, picking up a bit of lavender pastille and an exotic blood orange nuance with aeration. Juicy acidity adds spine and lift; fine-grained tannins shape a strikingly long, focused finish that leaves behind sweet floral pastille and red berry notes. (JR)" (04/2016) ...

2016 Clos du Mont-Olivet "Cuvée du Papet" Chateâuneuf-du-Pape

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another best to date, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Cuvée du Papet from Thierry Sabon is pure perfection in a glass. More powerful than the classic cuvée, with killer black raspberries, crushed rocks, garrigue, salty minerality, and iodine, it's deep, full-bodied, concentrated, and sexy, yet has building tannin. It's one of those “iron fist in a velvet glove” wines and continued to gain depth and richness every time I went back to the glass. Old-school, traditional Châteauneuf-du-Pape doesn’t get any better, and readers should ...

1996 Chateau de la Gardine "Cuvee des Generations" Chateauneuf-du-Pape

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The opaque-colored, slightly internationally styled 1996 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Generations exhibits toasty new oak and plenty of black currant fruit. The wine is surprisingly powerful and structured for a 1996, as well as dense and backward. This intense, impressively-endowed Chateauneuf needs several years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2012. (RP)" (02/1999) Wine Spectator: "Fairly racy, but also shows vanilla, mocha, smoke and toasty accents. Dark-colored, extracted, with supple tannins and plenty of ...

2004 Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing even better than when I tasted it for the 2004 retrospective earlier this year, the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is about as rich and textured as they come in the vintage. Blackberry, licorice-laced cherries, sugared garrigue and crushed flowers all emerge from this full-bodied, supple and yet beautifully balanced wine. As with the Chaupin, it’s entering its prime drink window, and will continue to evolve gracefully. I’ll say again though, it’s drinking beautifully now. (JD)" (08/2014) 95 p ...

2015 Domaine de Ferrand Châteauneuf-du-Pape

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 ...
