97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Crozes-Ermitage Les Varonniers is another Hermitage look-alike with extraordinary notes of blackcurrants, toasted spice, new saddle leather, burning embers, and bacon fat. With full-bodied richness, awesome depth of fruit, and building tannins, it will mostly likely be the wine of the vintage from Crozes Hermitage." (12/2019) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sumptuous cherries line the medium to full-bodied palate of the 2018 Crozes Hermitage les Varonniers. Underneath—for the moment—are stony notes of gr...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A killer wine as always, the 2018 Saint Joseph Les Granits Blanc reveals a medium gold color as well as powerful notes of white currants, toasted spices, brioche, quince, and crushed rock. With beautiful richness, medium to full body, no hard edges and a great finish, it's consistently one of the great whites in the appellation." (12/2019) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Ripe and round, the 2018 Saint-Joseph Les Granits Blanc is a lovely example of this cuvée, combining full-bodied richness with citrus zest and fres...

98-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As usual, Chapoutier's 2018 Ermitage l'Ermite is a standout among standouts. Crushed stone, blueberries, even a touch of herb feature on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is cool and crunchy but also ripe and generous. It's rich and long, with a firm, granitic structure that should enable two-plus decades of aging. This has it all. As has become my habit, I scheduled a full morning with Michel Chapoutier and his team to taste through the company's wines from the Northern Rhône. The fascination here with...

93-94 points James Suckling: "Extremely fresh and aromatic with sliced berries and hints of orange peel. Medium-bodied yet dense and deep with ripe, firm tannins and a flavorful finish. Shows energy and vibe. Solid length. Formerly called La Parde de Haut-Bailly. Second wine." (03/2019) 90-93 points Vinous: "The 2018 Haut-Bailly II is the newest incarnation of Le Parde de Haut Bailly. The wine is the same, only the name has changed, which the château did to link the wine more closely to the property and also eliminate ambiguity in a name that created c...

95 points John Gilman: "The 2018 Hermannshöhle Spätlese from the estate has no intention of being upstaged by the Brücke this year, as this too is a brilliant wine. The nose jumps from the glass in a complex blaze of fresh pineapple, pungent citrus zest, apple, a beautiful base of slate, wild yeasts and a topnote of white flowers. On the palate the wine is pure, complex, medium-full and beautifully suave on the attack, with superb mineral undertow and a laser-like and electric finish. Equally stunning juice. (Drink between 2025-2075) " (04/2019) 95 poi...

97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Also inky colored, the 2018 Ermitage Le Méal is another monster of a wine that has over-the-top notes of black raspberries, cassis, graphite, new leather, ground pepper, and incense. Massive, rich, full-bodied, and about as opulent as they come, it's another borderline perfect wine in the making." (12/2019) 96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Ermitage le Méal is denser than the les Greffieux, boasting layers of blackberry fruit. It's full-bodied, rich, concentrated and tannic, with a long chewy finish that h...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another truly flawless wine from this dream team is the 2018 Ermitage L’Ermite Blanc, which comes from a vineyard located at the top of Hermitage Hill and was brought up in 20-25% new demi-muids. Offering a magical bouquet of liqueur of rock, quince, poached pears, orange blossom, and honeysuckle, it's a powerful, super-rich, expressive, full-bodied white that could come from nowhere else in the world. It's approachable today (it needs plenty of air) yet won't hit prime for another 7-8 years or so." (12/2019) 98-100 points Robe...

95 points Decanter: "The 1.1ha vineyard of Brücke is a monopole of the estate. The vines are planted in loess loam soils over a slate bedrock, and its sheltered location down by the river is perfect for producing spätlese. The 2018 has a ripe green apple character on the nose, joined by notes of white flowers and a touch of honey. The palate is incredibly intense and limey, sweet yet elegant and balanced. It almost appears to be drier than the Leistenberg Kabinett at this early stage, such is its impeccable harmony, absorbing its 85g/l of residual sugar ...

95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc Roussanne Vieilles Vignes is all Roussanne and comes from a three-hectare parcel of vines planted in 1901. It offers a heavenly bouquet of white currants, white flowers, honeysuckle, and toasted bread that opens up beautifully with time in the glass. Rich, full-bodied, powerful and concentrated, it stays perfectly balanced on the palate and has that rare sense of richness paired with freshness that’s the hallmark of truly great wines." (08/2019) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "T...

97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Côte Rôtie La Mordorée comes from the La Côte Brune and the Côte Blonde lieux-dits and is brought up in demi-muids, roughly 35% being new. Black raspberries, currants, cured meats, new leather, and Asian spice notes all define the bouquet. Full-bodied, powerful, and opulent on the palate, it has lots of tannins, loads of fruit, and a great finish." (12/2019) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Always a blend of the Côte Blonde and Côte Brune lieux-dits, the 2018 Cote Rotie la Mordorée features scents of penc...

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...

99 points James Suckling: "A dense and layered white with minerals, salt, white pepper, chalk, dried lemon and subtle pears. Pumice. Wow. Tiny film of oil. Creamy and insane. What a wine. Magic. One for the cellar. Drink or hold." (09/2019) 95 points Decanter: "From a site of slate and porphyry facing the Nahe river and from Cornelius Dönnhoff's capable hands, this is an expression of stone and sun. A very scented nose of citric ripeness sets the tone. The palate is mild and fresh at the same time, pristine and vivid but beautifully balanced and ripe. ...

93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc takes it up a notch, offering rocking notes of white peach, quince, crushed rocks, and honeysuckle. It’s medium to full-bodied, with a beautiful core of sweet fruit, a layered texture, and a great finish. It’s unquestionably another beautiful wine, and while 2018 was challenging for the whites, you wouldn’t know it by tasting this." (08/2019) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A terrific example of Beaucastel's white, the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc boasts lavish aromas of honey...

97-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Is le Méal the most complex and complete lieu-dit on Hermitage, when considering both red and white wines? The 2018 Ermitage le Méal Blanc certainly makes a case for the white, offering honeyed, complex notes of mixed citrus, pineapple, pear and melon, structural notes of crushed stone, ample weight and richness on the palate and a long, vibrant finish. Just terrific. As has become my habit, I scheduled a full morning with Michel Chapoutier and his team to taste through the company's wines from the Northern R...

97-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Always with an almost southern character, the 2018 Ermitage Les Greffieux comes from a lieu-dit just at the base of the Méal hillside. Its deep black color is followed by a killer bouquet of black and blue fruits, cured meats, ground herbs, chocolate, and graphite that opens up beautifully with time in the glass. Deep, rich, and just straight-up massive on the palate, it has sweet tannins, thrilling purity of fruit, and a monster of a finish. Is this going to match or surpass the 2006?" (12/2019) 95-97 points Robert Parker's...

94 points John Gilman: "The 2018 Felsenberg GG is also absolutely outstanding this year. The bouquet is impressively expressive at this early stage, soaring from the glass in a blaze of pear, tart orange, a beautiful base of slate minerality, wild yeasts, a touch of fleur de sel and a potpourri of floral scents in the upper register. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and seamless, with outstanding mid-palate depth, powerful mineral drive and great cut and grip on the long, perfectly balanced and youthful finish. This will be show stopping ju...

97-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Ermitage Le Pavillon is just as good yet has a more liquid rock-like character that needs to be tasted to be believed. Revealing an inky purple/blue color as well as incredible notes of blueberries, cassis, crushed rock, liquid violets, and new leather, this off-the-charts barrel sample has massive richness and depth, building tannins, and a finish that won't quit. It’s not for those looking for instant gratification but is a legendary Hermitage in the making." (12/2019) 96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "...

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Leading off the single vineyard Hermitage whites, the 2018 Ermitage De L’Orée is all Marsanne, from the Les Murets lieu-dit, brought up mostly in used demi-muids. Orange blossom, crushed citrus, spice box, white flowers, beautiful minerality, and vivid charcoal notes emerge from the glass of this beautiful, concentrated, opulent Hermitage, which has a stacked mid-palate and a level of structure fitting for a red wine. It's a brilliant wine that's going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for 20+." (12/2019) 96-98 po...

97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Côte Rôtie Neve comes from the more schist soils in the northern part of the appellation and is also brought up in demi-muids. It has a slightly more vivid purple color as well as racy notes of crème de cassis, vanilla, crushed violets, and ample minerality. It's always more focused, chiseled, and structured than the Mordorée. Both 2018 Côte Rôties from Chapoutier are brilliant wines in the making." (12/2019) 95-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Chapoutier's 2018 Cote Rotie Neve features stunning scents of vi...
