its massive, deep and layer profile. Possessing brilliant minerality, as well as notions of dry aged beef, cracked pepper, forest floor and sweet black currants, this full-bodied beauty has a stacked mid-palate, big structure and masses of sweet tannin on the finish. The minerality is really something here and this is reminiscent of filling your mouth with granite pebbles. It’s a resounding success in the vintage and will deliver the goods for upwards of two decades."

eROBERT PARKER 94 POINTS - "As with the 2012, the 2011 Cornas Renaissance (22 months in foudre) is more approachable than the straight Cornas. Inky purple Read More...
in color, it exhibits gorgeous black raspberry, cassis, ground herbs, spring flowers and underbrush to go with a rich, full-bodied, voluptuously textured profile on the palate. Still packing a wallop of tannin that emerges on the finish, it will benefit from a year or two in the cellar and cruise for 10-15 years."

town of Ampuis and the world-renowned Côte-Rôtie vineyard area for ten centuries, and today represents the family and astounding wines of Guigal.Château d’Ampuis is made from 7 exceptional vineyards from both sides of Côte-Rôtie, the Côte Blonde and the Côte Brune. It is composed of 93% Syrah and 7% Viognier, and aged in the same manner as the Guigal single-vineyard crus, for 36 months in new barrels that are all made at the estate. The hallmark of Chateau d'Ampuis is an unbelievably seductive perfume full of sweet red fruits, black fruits and spices, and an elegance despite the intense concentration of fruit. Chateau d'Ampuis defines what a great wine should be with its beautiful balance, complexity and length.

of the 2009. Loaded with notions of cassis, smoke, licorice, pepper and assorted background meatiness, this gorgeous effort hits the palate with full-bodied richness and depth, serious concentration and ripe tannin, with everything framed nicely by bright acidity. Comprised of 93% Syrah and 7% Viognier and aged 38 months in 100% new French oak, it’s a serious, age-worthy effort that will require patience."

to be bottled), the 2010 Cote Rotie La Mouline is certainly in the same league. More fresh and focused, with heavenly black raspberry, wild flower, underbrush, crushed rock-like minerality and hints of vanilla, it flows onto the palate with a seamless, pure silk texture that carries awesome concentration, ultra-fine tannin and incredible length. It will need more cellar time than the 2009, and have 2-3 decades of prime drinking."

of the 2009. While it doesn’t have the over the top exuberance of the prior vintage, it offers incredibly pure, detailed and classic aromas and flavors of black pepper, currants, blackberry, mineral and smoked bacon fat. Full-bodied, layered and deeply concentrated, yet also graceful and seamless, this knockout effort should require a decade to come around and have 3-4 decades of longevity."

Guigal before establishing their own vineyard in 1987. Yves Gangloff draws his wine-making experience from the time he spent at the Rhône Domaine Delas.
The intensely fruity Côte-Rôties of Gangloff has won numerous fans, among those many sommeliers, who enjoy matching them with local black truffle dishes. Gangloff labels -usually voluptuous nudes, are painted by Yves' brother. Made with 8% Viognier from small sites centred on Tupins and Combard in the Côte Blonde, this is fleshy, spicy and indulgent, but with finely tailored tannins and beautiful poise on the finish, bearing all the hallmarks of Gangloffian excellence and tempting potential drinkers to an early symposium.

WINE ADVOCATE 90-92 POINTS - “Insiders and shrewd consumers have long realized that the 30,000-bottle Syrah La Rosine Vin de Pays cuvee is a great bargain. Read More...
The 2011 is a 100% Syrah from the steep hillsides north of the old Roman town of Vienne, a few miles up river from Cote Rotie. The soils are largely decomposed granite. The 2011 La Rosine is a serious Syrah displaying lots of tapenade, blackberry, charcoal and fruit. This beautifully made wine sells at a remarkably fair price as it resembles a Cote Rotie from the Cote Brune."

We love it when we can get a good deal to you, especially when it means getting a declassified Cornas at Cotes du Rhone pricing. Such is the case with a wine from the young winemaker, Read More...
Matthieu Barret, who comes from a generation of winemakers (his grandfather founded Domaine du Coulet after WWII), and Matthieu has farmed biodynamically in the Northern Rhone since 2002. His Cornas, Domaine Coulet, demands $50 and above price points and routinely scores 93-96 points from Wine Spectator. James Molesworth of WS called Matthieu “…the future in Cornas (and) ...the single most exciting new domaine in the appellation today.” Had this wine come from a different zip code, the price would change dramatically. But as the old Real Estate saying goes, it’s all about “location, location, location,” and it is you Dear Reader, who benefits from this districting loophole.

The wine we are offering is Matthieu Barret’s 2012 “Petit Ours Brun”, or “Little Brown Bear” Cotes du Rhone. A wine made of 100% Syrah from vineyards which lie between Cornas and St. Joseph, with 40-year-old vines and aged in neutral barrels. This sumptuous wine is generous with violets, boysenberry, and red fruits, and finishes with a smoky meaty character and crushed rock. This is a seamless, complex wine without getting ponderous, and is utterly charming and delicious. This is a no-brainer of a Northern Rhone buy and is definitely a wine to “back the truck” on, or in this case, fill your cave with this “Little Brown Bear.”
