2017 Guy Farge "Terroir de Granit" Saint-Joseph Rouge

95 points Decanter: "Very ripe liquorice, pepper, olive and black fruit nose. The palate is dense, fruity, tight and focused with saline tannins and a powerful, driving and grippy finish. Real terroir expression here. (DWWA 2019)" (05/2019) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Saint Joseph Terroir de Granit lacks some of the vibrant raspberry notes found in Farge's Passion de Terrasses, but it looks virtually equivalent in overall quality. Black olives and black cherries pick up complex herbal-stemmy notes on the nose, while the full-b ...

2016 Domaine des Rémizières Saint-Joseph

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Saint Joseph is a winner. Coming from 40-year-old vines, granite soils, and brought up in 30% new oak, it has straight-up classic notes of blackberries, crushed violets, pepper, and obvious minerality to go with a tight, medium-bodied, concentrated style on the palate. Possessing a rare level of purity and finesse in its tannin, drink this beauty any time over the coming decade." (12/2018) 91 points Vinous: "(50% new oak) Bright purple.

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the 2016, all of which were tasted from bottle, the 2016 Crozes Hermitage Cuvée Christophe is a rich, powerful Crozes in the vintage. Brought up in 70% new French oak, it offers a rich array of crème de cassis, jammy blackberries, toasted spice, and subtle oak.

The 2017 is rich and generous in fruit and ripe tannins, but is so well held together and ushered into shape. It's densely coloured, with beautifully fresh herb aromas and super-fresh, pure blackberries on the tongue. It has plenty of relief and texture, with crisp acidity and a long, mineral finish.

2018 Guy Farge "Bouquet de Syrah" Ardeche Rouge

Guy Farge is a third generation grape grower, but he is late to the game, so to speak, as a vigneron, having bottled his first cuvée from his own grapes in 2007. Nonetheless, his meticulous and committed approach in the vineyard (where all great wine begins) carries through to his winemaking. With his son, Thomas, running the business side of the domaine, Guy is making incredibly expressive wines from his 22 hectares spread over St-Joseph, Condrieu, Cornas, and Saint-Péray. This wine, his entry-level Syrah, carries a lifted freshness to go along with the ...

2015 M. Chapoutier "Le Pavillon" Ermitage Rouge 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another perfect wine, the 2015 Ermitage Le Pavillon comes from the Bessards lieu-dit on Hermitage, which is pure granite soils. I've said it before, but will say it again, this is unquestionably the finest, most singular vineyard for Syrah in the world. Cassis, graphite, smoked herbs, liquid rocks and violet aromas give way to a huge, concentrated, opulent and off-the-charts beauty that just hints at its ultimate potential. I wouldn’t think about opening bottles for at least a decade, after which it will keep for 4-5 decades." (0 ...

2017 Domaine Jamet Collines Rhodaniennes Syrah

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 IGP Collines Rhodanienne Syrah comes from a parcel grown on mica schist near the winery and a parcel on the plateau de Condrieu grown on granite. Unlike most of the reds here, it's destemmed. The wine then spends eight to ten months in used barrels (10-15 years old) prior to bottling. Scents of struck flint and crushed stone accent raspberry fruit on the nose, while the medium-bodied palate (the wine is only 12.5% alcohol) is supple. It finishes silky and bright, a sort of mini Côte Rôtie for early drink ...

2015 Domaine Paul Jaboulet Aine "Domaine de Thalabert" Crozes-Hermitage (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The finest vintage to date, better even than the stellar 2010, the 2015 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine De Thalabert is a gorgeous, deep, layered, and incredibly satisfying Crozes. Blackcurrants, olive tapenade, truffles and earthy notes all emerge from this full-bodied, gorgeously textured and seamless 2015. With fine tannin and no hard edge, it can be drunk today or cellaring for 15-20 years." (01/2018) 94 points Vinous: "Inky ruby.

It shows that same unfathomable depth and richness married to a sense of weightlessness and elegance that marks the La Landonne, and it also shows those wonderfully pure raspberry flavors.

Inky colored, medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated, and beautifully textured, it shows more and more complexity with time in the glass as well as an alluring floral quality. It's already approachable, assuming you don't mind ripe tannins, but will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring and cruise for 10-15 years." (12/2018) 93 points ...

2017 Alain Graillot Crozes-Hermitage

Joe Czerwinski writes: "This year, both of Alain's sons - Antoine and Maxime - were on hand when I visited the estate. As always, the red wines here are fermented with their stems. "It's the style of the winery," said Antoine. "And, it's easier. We're not always asking ourselves, 'Is it 20%, 40%?' It's always 100%." Not much changes here, but the brothers do say the wines are spending a little longer in vat both before and after spending a year in barrel. The 2017 reds will be bottled in March 2019.

Burning embers, ozone, saddle leather, beef blood and a liqueur of rocks bouquet gives way to a full-bodied, silky, awesome Crozes-Hermitage that's undoubtedly the greatest vintage ever for this cuvée.

2017 Vincent Paris Selection Crozes-Hermitage

A native of the Cornas appellation, Vincent Paris inherited most of his vines from his grandfather and leases other blocks from an uncle for a total of about 8 hectares. Paris has built upon his family's winemaking tradition to make a name for himself as a talented winemaker through carefully managing vineyard yields, fermenting longer and at cooler temperatures and using mostly neutral oak.

A captivatingly pretty floral fragrance can be coaxed out along with aniseed and blackberry notes, but it's tightly wound for now. The rounded palate is dense, with good concentration of red fruit and delightfully perfumed juniper. Soft tannins coat the mouth, and oak is present but well judged. There's good balancing acidity and a lovely, gently mineral seam leads onto a long, saline, savoury, piercing finish. Real detail and precision. (MW)" (10/2017) ...

This is haute couture at its finest and is pure class that could come from nowhere else. As with most 2016s, it's going to be relatively accessible in its youth, yet this is one Hermitage that's not going to hit maturity for another 8-10 years and will keep for three decades."

This is a rich, powerful, black-fruited expression of this cuvée, offering up tons of blackcurrants, blackberries, smoked earth, chocolate, and spice. Inky colored, full-bodied, sensationally concentrated, and opulent on the palate, it's a killer bottle of wine that can be drunk today or cellared for 25 years or more." (12/2 ...

Serious thrust and soaring energy, this is white-knuckle stuff. This was made from 70-year-old Syrah vines planted on a high bank of decomposed granite and granitic sands, lieu-dit L’Ermite. Yields of 22 hl/ha. Comple ...
