eROBERT PARKER 95 POINTS: "Moving to the current releases that are in bottle, the 2011 Cornas belies the vintage’s forward, mid-weight stereotype with Read More...
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."

The Guigal family have spent 15 years restoring Château Ampuis, a historic property whose oldest sections date to the 11th century. The Chateau d'Ampuis has been the symbol of the Read More...
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.

a medium dark plum/ruby color, and a gentle roundness and lushness. By the time this cuvee is in bottle, I suspect it will be better than it was showing in Guigal’s cellars."

labeled Biodynamic wine at a price that anyone can afford and lets tell our story on the back label. Hence the Natural Selection Syrah. A lush, plush blend of Syrah, Grenache and Carignan that does not contain a single chemical.

Vinification : Vinified in oak and cement. Extraction from punching of the cap and light pumping over during a four week maceration.

Ageing : 30% in new oak barrel and 70% in old oak for 12 months.

Appearance : Very deep and even red and garnet appearance with hints of deep purple.

Nose : Open and expressive with great complexity. There are ripe black fruits (blackcurrants, elderberries) alongside more spicy characteristics (pepper, herbs)

Palate : Very attractive in the mouth with firm yet silky tannins. Aromatic, spicy with a fabulously generous weight. The finish is long and delicate.

tea and alder notes glide through. Finely beaded acidity stitches it all together. Drink now through 2015. 15 cases imported.”

Ogier is one of the great names of the Côtes-Rôtie, but this wine is labeled with the rather tricky Vins de Pays “Les Collines Rhodaniennes.” The total area of the famed Côtes-Rôtie is only 450 acres and the “Rosine” bottling comes from an adjacent parcel that is outside the appellation, but shares the same granite soils as the AOC. La Rosine is 100% Syrah and shows classic Northern Rhône firmness and spice with a texture that more closely resembles Burgundy than New World Syrah.

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.”

up a liqueur of rocks intermixed with black cherries, oak, lavender and black as well as red fruits. This is a long-term proposition, so forget it for 3-4 years and drink it over the next 15 or so."
