2016 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The full-bodied 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is a blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault. While not quite as good as the stellar 2015, it boasts silky tannins, plenty of cherry fruit and a dusting of ground pepper and allspice on the long finish. (JC)" (08/2018) 91 points Vinous: "Bright violet. Ripe cherry and raspberry on the deeply perfumed nose, lifted by suggestions of pungent flowers and cracked pepper. Nicely concentrated but lively as well, offering sappy red berry, candied cherry a ...

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 Domaine Durieu "Lucile Avril" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Lucile Avril is mostly old vine Grenache mixed with roughly 10% Syrah and Mourvèdre. It's another deeply colored effort from this estate that has classic notes of bouquet garni, sweet red and black fruits, new saddle leather, and assorted spicy nuances. It's deep, concentrated, balanced, and has a great finish, and is a no-brainer purchase that’s going to keep for 15+ years."

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 ...

2010 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Performing considerably better than it did prior to bottling, the 2010 Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape is one of the all-time great Vieux Telegraphes I have tasted in the last 3+ decades. I believe it is even superior to the 2007, which I had several weeks ago. The 2010 boasts a dense purple color along with a sumptuous bouquet of spring flowers, boysenberries, black cherries, black currants, nori (the sushi seaweed wrapper), black olives, licorice and pepper. This full-bodied, meaty, thick, juicy effort pos ...

2017 Domaine Saint Prefert "Charles Giraud" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Even better (as well as a perfect wine), the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Collection Charles Giraud checks in as a nominal blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre that was brought up in demi-muids. It reveals a deep purple color as well as heavenly notes of blackberry and currant fruits intermixed with loads of cured meats, spice box, Asian spices, and a distinct loamy soil and minerality. Always more structured and powerful than the Reserve Auguste Favier release (no doubt due to the Mourvèdre component), it hits the palate with ful ...

2016 Baron de Montfaucon Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a single patch of 80-year-old vines in the lieu-dit of les Escondudes, the 2016 Châteauneuf du Pape is 95% Grenache, matured in barrel. Yet it's not oaky at all, revealing scents of black cherries and plums, plus hints of garrigue and dark chocolate. It's full-bodied, creamy and plush yet also vibrant, mouthwatering and long. It should drink well for at least a decade. (JC)" (11/2018) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Intense, with dark fig, blackberry and boysenberry compote flavors streaming through, flanked by ...

2005 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Wine Spectator: "Really tight now, but packed with dark fig, currant, espresso, licorice and chocolate notes. Superfleshy but seriously structured, there's layer after layer of sweet spice, fruit and minerality pumping through the finish, with lots of latent depth and power. Far more backward than the 2003 or 2004 on release, but since this red typically puts on weight as it ages, it should be a monster--à la the 1990--when it reaches its peak. Best from 2009 through 2030. *Wine Spectator #1 Wine of the Year, 2007* (JM)" (12/2007) 96 points J ...

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

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.

2016 Bosquet des Papes "La Folie" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The deepest colored of the trio and a true “Wow” wine, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Folie is 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre that was completely destemmed and brought up 10% new barrels, with the balance in demi-muids. An insane bouquet of black cherry liqueur, blackberries, crushed rocks, and pepper garrigue gives way to a full-bodied, incredibly polished, seamless Grenache. This beauty does everything right and possesses a vibrant, sexy texture, no hard edges, and a blockbuster finish. It will most likely merit a triple-digit ...

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, ...

2016 Bosquet des Papes "A la Gloire de Mon Grand Père" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

Based almost exclusively on Grenache (there’s a splash of Cinsault and Clairette) sourced from the La Gardiole lieu-dit and aged mostly in demi-muids, this heavenly beauty offers awesome notes of garrigue, toasted spices, flowers, licoric ...

Drink now through 2022. 300 cases imported. (JM)" (11/2015) K&L Notes: While 2013 was a year fraught with challenges for many producers, you would hardly guess that from this wine.

It reveals a saturated purple color as well as a super-rich, blockbuster-styled bouquet of blackcurrants, blackberries, ground pepper, truffle, charcuterie, and God knows what else.

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.

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The top wine of the estate is the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape le Secret de Sabon, and the inky-colored 2012 is a brilliant effort. 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. Possessing a sweet nose of ripe raspberries, kirsch, garrigue and licorice, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, tons of glycerol and texture, sweet tannin and mode ...

2000 Domaine du Caillou "Les Quartz" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Wine Spectator: "Thanks to its beautiful polish this manages to beguile despite a powerful core of raspberry ganache, sweet toast, mineral, violet, mocha, tobacco and aged fruitcake. Long, juicy finish resonates with pure, dark, vivid fruit. Beautiful. Drink now through 2015. (2004)" 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The brilliant 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Quartz is more evolved as well as spicier than the floral, mineral, and black fruit-dominated 2001. Full-bodied, with high glycerin, and a heady concoction of minerals, black rasp ...

2016 Roger Sabon "Secret de Sabon" Châteauneuf-du-Pape 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Unquestionably the deepest, richest wine in the lineup, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Le Secret des Sabon offers sensational notes of blackberries, cassis, crushed rocks, graphite, and bouquet garni. Full-bodied, ultra-fine, seamless, and pure, it has more elegance and purity than the 2010 and is reminiscent of the 2001. It's a gorgeous, extraordinary, layered, seamless Châteauneuf-du-Pape to drink over the coming two decades or more." (08/2018) 97 points Wine Spectator: "Gorgeous, with warm ganache and steeped plum aromas enlive ...

1998 Domaine du Caillou "Cuvée Unique" Chateauneuf-du-Pape

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Roasted red fruits and milk chocolate on the nose. Lush and dense in the mouth, with leather, coffee, dark chocolate and garrigue flavors, a lightly animal syrah character, and a strong oak component. Finishes fat and lush, with strong roasted wood tones. Quite Languedoc in style. (ST)" (01/2001)

2016 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another perfect wine from this brilliant estate is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, which matches the otherworldly 2007. 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 ...

2001 Domaine Charvin Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L)

96 points Wine Spectator: "Dark and dense, this very powerful Châteauneuf oozes dark chocolate, black currant, tar, mineral, grilled beef and roasted chestnut flavors that just won't quit. Yet despite its exotic range of flavors, it has a pure, silky core of fruit that remains steadfast through the extremely long finish. An awesome young wine. Best from 2006 through 2024. *Top 100 of 2004, Highly Recommended* (JM)" (05/2004) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More open and exuberant than the 2000, with a sweeter core of fruit, the 2001 Chateaune ...

2016 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A wine that’s going to rival or surpass the 2015, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée shows the quality of this awesome vintage with its deep, powerful, concentrated style. While Laurence says her 2015s remind her of her 2010s, I find a certain 2010-like purity in this wine as well as killer notes of black raspberries, blueberries, garrigue, and pepper. Possessing both power and finesse, full body, sweet tannins, and a great finish, don’t miss this beauty." (08/2018) 96 points Wine Spectator: "A singed chestnut accent ...

2017 Roger Sabon "Prestige" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Including more Syrah, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Prestige is 70% Grenache 20% Mourvèdre, and the rest Mourvèdre and other permitted varieties. While it’s brought up mostly in foudre, it has 10% in demi-muids and 30% in cuve tronconique. With thrilling purity of fruit, notes of black raspberries, blackberries, ground pepper, garrigue, and a distinct sense of minerality, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, ripe, sweet tannins, a beautifully opulent texture, and a great finish. It's another rock star of a 2017 from supers ...

2006 Domaine La Roquete "L'Accent de Roquete" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Clos La Roquete new luxury cuvee, the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape l’Accent de Roquete, is fashioned from 90% old vine Grenache grown in Les Pialons (situated high on the plateau) and 10% Mourvedre from the sandy soils of Pignan. Sadly, there are only 400 cases of this sensational 2006. Deep ruby to the rim, with vibrant black raspberry and sweet black cherry scents interwoven with notions of incense, lavender, spice box, and licorice. Full-bodied with fabulously intense, succulent fruit, a layered texture, and a hea ...
