by the Cabirau 2011 Cotes du Roussillon Malgre les Functionnaires proof against any negative effects of its nearly 15% alcohol. Tar, Latakia tobacco and black pepper incisively accent this smoky, rich blend of Grenache with roughly 20% Syrah and 15% Carignan, leading to an infectiously juicy and positively mouth-shaking finish. Here is a wonderful example of the vivacity and energy that can be conveyed by ripe Roussillon fruit, not mention an exceptional value. I expect it to drink well through at least 2017."

ROBERT PARKER 96 POINTS: "Rich, powerful and almost port-like, Brunel’s 2003 Cuvee Centenaire is locked and loaded with notions of kirsch liqueur, garrigue, Read More...
roasted meats and licorice that flow to a full-bodied, concentrated Chateauneuf du Pape that possesses a core of sweet fruit, gorgeous texture and a heady finish that seems to go on and on. Fully mature, with completely integrated tannin, it is certainly not for the low alcohol crowd, yet offers up a thrillingly rich drinking experience. I don’t see any upside here and would enjoy bottles over the coming handful of years."

ROBERT PARKER 96 POINTS - "Two brilliant successes are Brunel’s cuvees of 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape. His limited cuvee of approximately 500 cases of Read More...
the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Centenaire (made from 80% Grenache aged in foudre, and the balance Syrah and Mourvedre aged in one- to three-year-old small barrels) comes primarily from a parcel of 120-year-old vines in the northern part of the appellation in the lieu-dit known as Farguerol. This cuvee has only been made in vintages such as 1989, 1990, 1995, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2006, and now 2007. Deep ruby/purple in color, the wine exhibits very up-front, precocious, sexy plum, black currant, and sweet cherry notes intermixed with some floral hints, licorice, and garrigue. It is dense, full-bodied, much more supple and silky-textured than the 2005 or 2001, but seemingly more concentrated than the 2000 version of this wine. It is a brilliant, full-throttle, seamless Chateauneuf du Pape capable of lasting for up to two decades, although few people will be able to resist its exuberant youthfulness. A moderately-sized estate for Chateauneuf du Pape (just under 44 acres), this is always a benchmark for the quality of any given vintage thanks to the energetic and very talented proprietor, Andre Brunel. He produced two of the best 2008s I tasted."

ROBERT PARKER 98+ POINTS: "The newest special cuvee (introduced in 2006) is the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (50% Grenache, 40% Mourvedre, Read More...
and 10% Syrah). Made from 50- to 100+-year-old vines and aged 18 months in small oak barrels, it is potentially one of the longest lived wines of the vintage. This exquisite, dense purple-colored effort reveals intense but restrained notes of cassis, kirsch, lavender, licorice, and graphite. A wine of great intensity as well as remarkable finesse and elegance, is a full-bodied Chateauneuf that will require plenty of patience. Give it 3-4 years of bottle age, and drink it over the following 25-30."

ROBERT PARKER 94 POINTS - "Another shocker in the best sense is the 2008 Chateauneuf du Pape La Combe des Fous. As I wrote last year, this is one of Read More...
the most complex and concentrated wines of the vintage. An extraordinary perfume of white chocolate, roasted Provencal herbs, lavender, licorice, black cherries and sweet black currants is followed by a broad, expansively flavored wine with a superb full-bodied texture, terrific purity and a 40+ second finish. In fact, the tannins are such that 1-2 years of bottle age may be beneficial. This 2008 should evolve for 15 years. It is almost impossible to believe that something like this could have been achieved in this vintage."

The southern Rhone has seen some very good vintages over the past few years. Robert Parker rates 2007 as a 98 point vintage, 2009 a 93 point and 2010 another 98 pointer. Clos Saint Jean has been one of the top performers in all of those vintages. They have been given outstanding scores for their 3 top bottling’s. Sanctum Sanctorum, Deus Ex Machina, and La Combe Des Fous have grabbed an amazing nine 99 or 100 point scores from 2007 thru 2010 combined. Unfortunately there is never enough wine to go around (only 1 case and a few mags for the entire year). When we tasted the 2008 La Combe Des Fous, there was only one thing to say “we’ll take it all!”

Lost between the 100 point 2007 and the 99 point 2009 is the absolutely stunning 2008 La Combe Des Fous. This Cuvee is made from a single plot of mostly Grenache in tank and 20% Syrah in demi-muids. This is a pure, clean, full bodied beauty. Don’t miss your chance to treat yourself to one of Chateauneuf Du Pape’s finest wines. Take one home for the upcoming holiday feast.

ROBERT PARKER - "The Brunier brothers have turned out a very fine 2008 Chateauneuf du Pape (what they call a -vintage of freshness-). This classic Read More...
effort possesses more stuffing than most of its peers. It reveals this estate-s tell-tale notes of earthy garrigue, herbs, licorice and seaweed, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, soft tannins and more depth than many 2008s. Nevertheless, it will not be a long-ager, so readers are encouraged to drink it over the next 5-7 years."

ROBERT PARKER 90-92 POINTS: "The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape appears to be a beautiful wine, although perhaps not at the level of the 2007 or 2010 (which Read More...
will not be released for another two years). The elegant, medium to full-bodied 2009 displays lots of cedary, berry fruit intermixed with notes of garrigue, Christmas fruitcake, kirsch and spice. It is best consumed in its first decade of life."

WINE ADVOCATE 91 - 93 POINTS - " The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes comes primarily from two sectors of Chateauneuf du Pape, La Crau Read More...
and Mont Olivet. It is a dense ruby/purple color, with plenty of garrigue, lavender, black currant, black cherry, sandy, loamy soil notes along with underbrush. A quintessential wine of Provence – full-bodied, powerful, yet at the same time, elegant and very complex – it can be drunk over the next 15+ years." Wine Advocate #191 Oct 2010

ROBERT PARKER 94 POINTS: "A sensational effort, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee La Cote Ronde reveals a touch of toasty oak in the aromatics, but Read More...
it is beautifully integrated with kirsch, roasted Provencal herb, espresso and black currant aromas. This full-throttle, masculine and rich wine possesses sweet tannins as well as good integration of structure and acidity. It is built for the long haul, yet can be drunk in 2-3 years or cellared for two decades."

WINE SPECTATOR 93 POINTS: "This isn't shy, with flashy mocha, toasted raisin, cinnamon and pastis aromas rushing forth, but there's sleek, integrated structure and solid layers of linzer torte, plum pâte de fruit and bramble to fill it out. A tarry edge lingers on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2026. 700 cases made." –JM

VINOUSMEDIA 91+ POINTS: "Opaque purple. Ripe, smoke-accented aromas of blueberry, cassis, violet and vanilla, with a peppery topnote. Lush, deeply pitched dark fruit flavors pick up a bitter chocolate nuance in the glass, along with a hint of licorice. Dusty tannins build with air and add firm grip to a long, spicy finish. This wine possesses strong material but needs some time to stretch out." -- Josh Raynolds
CHATEAUNEUF 10 BARBERINI

ROBERT PARKER 91 POINTS: "The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Barberini is virtually two-thirds tank-aged Grenache with the balance Syrah and a little (Read More...
about 10%) Mourvedre, the latter aged in small oak barrels. It exhibits a dense ruby/purple color and a more modern style than the traditional cuvee or the 100% Grenache cuvee Cornelia Constanza reviewed below. Despite its so-called -modern leanings,- which some people deplore, this is a beauty. Dense purple, with elegant blueberry and blackberry fruit as well as hints of garrigue, vanillin and spice box, it is dense, full-bodied, yet wonderfully precise and fresh, given the vintage's liveliness and vibrancy. In light of some noticeable tannins, give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 15-20+ years."

Jean-Claude Vidal is the uncle of Jean-Marc Espinasse (see Rouge-Bleu above). An engineer by profession, he has lovingly tended his pocket-sized domaine since inheriting it twenty Read More...
years ago. A fierce traditionalist, he makes a wine that will bring tears to the eyes of any nostalgists who believe that Châteauneuf’s best days are behind it. Making just 500 cases a year, he proves that it is possible against all odds to harness the benefits of today’s climate to the aesthetic standards of yesteryear.

cherry fruit. Singed wood and warm stone notes hang in the background, leading to an echo of garrigue on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2024. 2,500 cases imported." –JM

ROBERT PARKER 89 POINTS: "Leading off and a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape La Bernardine is a solid, workhorse-styled effort that offers up notions of sweet red cherries, licorice, garrigue and earthy notes on the nose. Medium-bodied, lively and fresh, with an overall elegant, supple profile, it won’t make old bones, yet is a joy to drink and will dish out plenty of pleasure over the coming 5-6 years. Drink now-2019."

eROBERT PARKER 95 POINTS: "A step up, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Collection Charles Giraud is a smoking wine that’s up with the top wines of the vintage. Read More...
Made from 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvedre, it has perfumed kirsch, black raspberry, licorice, dried flowers and roasted meat-like qualities soaring from the glass. As with the Reserve Auguste Favier, this has put on more mid-palate weight, has beautifully sweet fruit, and ripe tannin that emerges on the finish. It can be consumed anytime over the coming 10-12 years."

WINE SPECTATOR 94 POINTS: "This features a dark, warm ganache spine that holds the cherry compote, plum sauce and steeped currant fruit together. Smoldering charcoal and tobacco notes line the finish. Shows solid muscle for the vintage. Best from 2015 through 2025. 650 cases made." –JM

I remember. Giving up loads of blackberry, licorice, smoked herbs and toasted spice, it possesses medium to full-bodied richness, beautiful mid-palate density and a beautiful core of sweet fruit. Already drinking beautifully, it will have a solid 10-12 years of ultimate longevity."

WINE SPECTATOR 92 POINTS: "Shows good depth for the vintage, with a full, fleshy feel to the cherry, red currant and raspberry fruit, lined with singed mesquite, pepper and warm paving stone notes. A flicker of shiso leaf appears on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2022. 915 cases made." –JM

in 2011 (not La Crau), it offers up plenty of dusty soil, ground pepper and leather that’s grounded by a solid core of darker berry fruit. Medium to full-bodied, with beautiful mid-palate density and depth, this pure, very well put-together 2011 will have upward of 8-10 years of longevity. Drink 2014-2021."
