    WINE ADVOCATE 92 - 94 POINTS - "Looking like a future star, the 2016 Gigondas Terrasses de Montmirail is full-bodied, lush and creamy. Black cherry and vanilla flavors finish with savory tannins, an enticing bit of licorice and no heat at all. Very promising."

  2. ALAIN JAUME 2016 LIRAC CLOS DE SIXTE

    Item #: i_350312
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 93+
    WINE ADVOCATE 93 + POINTS: "The 2016 Lirac Domaine du Clos de Sixte is a terrific wine, easily the rival to many Châteauneufs from across the river, starting with its alluring aromas of flowering garrigue and ripe cherries. A blend of 50% Grenache, 35% Syrah and 15% Mourvèdre, this full-bodied wine is lush and concentrated on the palate, then turns velvety on the long finish. I'd treat it like a Châteauneuf du Pape in terms of cellaring: hold it for a few years, then drink it over the next 15. - Joe Czerwinski" - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue 233, October 2017), 93+ pts

  3. ALAIN VOGE 2015 CORNAS FONTAINES V.V.

    Item #: i_345737
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Advocate: 96
    eROBERT PARKER 96 POINTS: "Only produced in top vintages (this is the first since 2012), the 2015 Cornas Vieilles Fontaines comes from 80-year-old vines within the La Fontaine lieu-dit. It's a tough wine to evaluate at this stage, as it's quite closed and reticent on the nose, showing some crushed-stone notes and typical granite-based austerity, but on the palate it shows great purity of fruit and vigor. It's full-bodied but tight-laced, focused on driving through the long finish like a thoroughbred down the stretch. Give it at least 5 years in the cellar"

    Jeb Dunnuck: 92 Points
    WINE SPECTATOR 95 POINTS - "An understated style, but focus and you’ll see just how lovely the cassis, cherry and raspberry flavors are, carried by riveting acidity and flecked with notes of powdered white pepper and violet. An iron girder drives the finish, pulling everything along. This is defined by pure, sleek cut. Best from 2020 through 2035.

  5. ALAIN VOGE 2015 CORNAS VIEILLES VIGNES

    Item #: i_351699
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 95
    WINE ADVOCATE 95 POINTS - "Rich, deep and layered, the 2015 Cornas Vieilles Vignes has it all. Big fruit allied to spicy complexity? Check. Ample tannins that are fully ripe? Check. A finish that extends for days? Check. Oh, you want details? Hints of brown sugar, savory spices and roast meat accent black berry and plum fruit, and while the mid-palate is dense and tannic, those tannins actually turn more supple and approachable on the lingering finish."

    VINOUS 94 POINTS - "Brilliant purple. A highly perfumed bouquet displays ripe, mineral-tinged black and blue fruit, potpourri and incense qualities. Fleshy and expansive on the palate, offering densely packed yet energetic boysenberry, candied licorice and violet flavors enlivened by an undercurrent of juicy acidity. Smoothly blends richness and finesse and closes extremely long and youthfully tannic, leaving behind sexy floral pastille and dark berry liqueur notes."

    James Suckling: 95-96
    JAMES SUCKLING 95-96 POINTS - "Dark, spicy and stony aromas with a smoky and intense mineral edge, some garrigue herbs, blackberries and ripe plum fruits. A sense of deep-set tension in a succulent array of black-fruit flavors with a long driving thread of tannins."

  7. BERNARD GRIPA 2015 SAINT JOSEPH LE BERCEAU ROUGE

    Item #: i_350579
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    100% Syrah.
    The powerful nose is showing black pepper, blackberries and subtle violet flavours. The taste is full-bodied and dense, with silky and firm tannins. It could be paired with lamb, beef and spicy dishes as well as a great array of strong cheeses. It could be cellared for more than 15 years or enjoyed in its youth by decanting for at least an hour before serving.

    Domaine Gripa has named their top Saint Joseph cuvée “Berceau”. It is a selection of their oldest vines from the appellation. There is only one hectare of vines that produce this label. Exclusively planted on terraces, these challenging vineyards can only be maintained by hand. The granite soils of Saint Joseph provide great freshness to the wines, despite their low acidity.

  8. BERTHAUDE 2016 CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE VIEILLES VIGNES

    Item #: i_352031
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 92
    The 2016 Maison La Berthaude is without a doubt our greatest value from Chateauneuf du Pape. When we tasted this wine we immediately knew it had a place in our store. After the price was revealed, we knew we had to grab as much as we could. We taste a lot of wine from the most famous appellation of the Southern Rhone and this wine competes favorably with wine two to three times its price of $24.99.

    The Wine Advocate is also a fan and gave this wine a 92 Point rating, noting it is a "big, rich wine."

    Last year, our customers scooped up the "Tradition" bottling of this wine by the case. That wine was absolutely delicious, but this is a step up in quality. This Chateauneuf is a special old vine cuvee from Berthaude which showcases the brilliance of the 2016 growing season in the Rhone Valley. It also shows the incredible mid-palate persistence one gets from low yielding old vines. Its depth of flavor and generosity of perfectly ripened fruit had us asking for more!

    Xavier Rolin is the 5th generation of winemakers in his family and he is a cousin of the famous Perrin Family of Chateau Beaucastel. His family domaine is based in Chateauneuf du Pape in the district of the Berthaude, thus the name Maison la Berthaude.

    Berthaude's Rhone blend is comprised of 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 15% Mourvedre. The vines are planted on two types of soil. The first is clay and limestone subsoil covered by the famous galets roules (large riverbed rounded stones). The second type of soil contains more sand and fashions wines with higher toned aromatics and finesse. Some of the vines are more than 100 years old and the average vine age at the domaine is about 60 years old. These old vines result in low yields and increased concentration of flavors.

    This has to be the best Chateauneuf available anywhere at this price. It is a fantastic wine that is a definite crowd pleaser which completely over delivers and would be a great one to grab by the case.

    Bright ruby in color. The aromatics alone make this wine compelling with expressive notes of violets, fresh red and black cherries, black raspberry, vanilla and baking spice. On the palate, this wine is full-bodied and lushly textured with layers of fruit enveloping the palate. Richly flavored Kirsch, black raspberry, vanilla, licorice and gentle spices merge and culminate in a long, satisfying finish that showcases the amazing fruit of the vintage.

    ROBERT PARKER 92 POINTS - "Hints of cedar and baking spices add modern touches to the full-bodied 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes. It's a big, rich wine, filled with cherries and red berries, turning a bit tannic on the long, cinnamon-dusted finish."

  9. BERTHAUDE 2016 CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE VIGNES CENTENAIRES RESERVE

    Item #: i_352032
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 93
    Jeb Dunnuck: 94 Points
    JEB DUNNUCK 94 POINTS: "On another level, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Réserve des Vignes Centenaires is unquestionably the most sexy, ripe and exuberant in the lineup, offering kirsch liqueur, graphite, garrigue, and ample spice. It's rich, full-bodied, beautifully textured, and sexy. This beauty is based on 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, raised in 30% new French oak. Don’t miss it!"

    ROBERT PARKER 93 POINTS: "Evidently seasoned with new wood in its élevage, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Vignes Centenaires features aromas of toasted coconut and vanilla over black cherries. It's full-bodied, rich and velvety, with a touch of warmth on the finish. Sure, it's a bit internationally styled, but there's a solid fruit core."

  10. BILA HAUT 2016 COTES DU ROUSSILLON L'ESQUERDA BY MICHEL CHAPOUTIER

    Item #: i_351858
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 94-96
    The wines from Domaine de Bila Haut are undoubtedly some of the greatest values coming out of France. In a region increasingly known for producing crowd-pleasing wines at fantastic prices, these stand out. This is a project from well-known Northern Rhone producer Michel Chapoutier. The Chapoutier team takes full advantage of the abundant sunshine and lower land cost of the Roussillon to deliver an incredible value.

    The deeply fruited Rhone blend, L'Esquerda delivers the goods with lush, perfectly ripened grapes showing off what this legendary producer is capable of. L'Esquerda showcases the stunning quality of the 2016 vintage with uncommon depth and complexity. The Wine Advocate awarded this a potential score of 96 Points and stated "there are not many values like this out there today."

    This outstanding wine is based on Syrah and Grenache grapes sourced from granitic soils. The term, "L'esquerda" is derived from Catalan and means "the fault in the rock." The result is a faithful expression of the personality and identity of a region which provides great pleasure.

    This wine from Bila Haut by Chapoutier is a no-brainer which over-delivers at a fantastic price. It is a great wine to stock up on and would make an excellent purchase by the case.

    WINE ADVOCATE 94-96 POINTS - "Sporting a deep purple—almost blue—color, the sensational 2016 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Lesquerde l'Esquerda has a northern Rhône-like minerality as well as notes of classic black and blue fruits, crushed flowers, ozone and licorice. Made from 60% Syrah and 40% Grenache, all from granitic soils, it’s a rich, structured, full-bodied and age-worthy red that will drink nicely through 2026. The quality of this release continues to soar and there are not many values like this out there today."

It’s a big wine, yet stays balanced, silky and even elegant on the palate, with notable tannic grip. It will keep for 15+ years."

  12. BOSQUET DES PAPES 2016 CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE

    Item #: i_351456
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 93
    Jeb Dunnuck: 93 Points
    Tasting through the stunning line-up from Bosquet de Papes re-affirmed the brilliance of this estate and reinforced our belief in the strength of the 2016 vintage in Chateauneuf du Pape. The wines from top to bottom are stunning and appear to be the best this great estate has made to date. Shockingly, the wines continue to offer an amazing quality to price ratio. Where else in the world can you find such critically acclaimed wines at such compelling prices?

    Consider the following quotes from critics who review Rhone wines for a living:

    "The wines here seem to be going from strength to strength" - Wine Advocate

    "Today this estate unquestionably produces some of the top wines in the appellation" - Jeb Dunnuck

    'This is a property to buy from before pricing jumps" - Wine Advocate


    Nicolas Boiron is the gregarious, larger than life personality who has led this family owned domaine to its greatest heights. Each of these wines has its own personality, but the common thread is they all display delicious, full-bodied fruit flavors enveloped in silky smooth tannins.

    WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "A terrific example of this bottling, the 2016 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Tradition is a blend of 75% Grenache, 12% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah and tiny amounts of Cinsault, Counoise and Vaccarèse. About 40% was destemmed in this textbook vintage, the fruit coming from 40 different parcels around the appellation. Floral and raspberry notes emerge on the nose, while the palate is full-bodied but silky textured, ending on subtle shadings of Provence herbs and licorice. It's a relative bargain that's easy to drink now, but it should easily go a decade or more in a cool cellar."

    JEB DUNNUCK 93 POINTS - "A true gem of a wine, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape checks in as 75% Grenache, 12% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah and the balance a mix of permitted varieties. This classic cuvée comes from a multitude of sites throughout the appellation and is partially destemmed and brought up in concrete tanks and demi-muids. Terrific notes of peppery garrigue, new leather, and sweet red and black fruits all give way to a silky, seamless, full-bodied Châteauneuf-du-Pape that has no hard edges and a great finish. The classic cuvées are so good in 2016, it makes you wonder if the more expensive special cuvées are worth it."

    JEB DUNNUCK 97 POINTS - "I was questioning if the top cuvées were worth the money after tasting the traditional cuvée from winemaker Nicolas Boiron, then I tasted his 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape A La Gloire de Mon Grand-Père and decided that, yes indeed, the special cuvées in 2016 can certainly be worth the uptick in price. Based almost exclusively on Grenache (there’s a splash of Cinsault and Clairette) sourced from the La Gardiole lieu-dit and aged mostly in demi-muids, this heavenly beauty offers awesome notes of garrigue, toasted spices, flowers, licorice and loads of sweet Grenache fruit. Voluptuous, flamboyant, and sexy, yet also elegant and seamless, with a weightless texture, this is Grenache at its finest and is going to knock your socks off over the coming 10-15 years."

    WINE ADVOCATE 97 POINTS - "There are 10,000 bottles of the stunning 2016 Châteauneuf du Pape A la Gloire de Mon Grand-Père, which is good news for lovers of 100% Grenache. Drawn from a single parcel in the lieu-dit of Gardiole (mostly sandy soils), half of the fruit was destemmed. It's full-bodied and concentrated but silky and refined, with scintillating purity of cherry and raspberry fruit, backed by crisp acids and enlivening hints of orange zest on the long, reverberating finish. It's a terrific value that should drink well for more than a decade."

Aged in foudre and demi-muids, it offers textbook notes of black raspberries, kirsch, garrigue, pepper and leafy herbs, as well as full-bodied richness, ripe, polished tannin and a great finish. I’ve found this cuvée to be a touch rustic in the past, but recent vintages show another level of purity, elegance and finesse."

    WINE ADVOCATE 97 POINTS - "The all whole-bunch 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Chante le Merle Vieilles Vignes is 85% Grenache, with the balance a mix of Mourvèdre and Syrah. The vines are all 80 to 90 years old, selected from parcels in Brusquières, Gardiole, Mont-Redon and Pignan. Glorious raspberry and cherry fruit picks up hints of mint and some stemmy notes, but they're remarkably well-integrated and should be completely absorbed within a couple of years. Full-bodied, rich and creamy in texture, this tour de force remains lively, silky and long on the finish. With 1,000 cases produced, it should be reasonably priced and reasonably available—an increasingly rare combination in Châteauneuf-du-Pape."

    JEB DUNNUCK 96+ POINTS - "The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Chante Le Merle Vieilles Vignes is much more classic in style when compared to the La Gloire de Mon Grand-Père. It’s a non-destemmed blend of 86% Grenache and the balance equal parts Mourvèdre and Syrah, aged in a mix of foudre, concrete tanks, and demi-muids. Classic notes of black fruits, smoked herbs, seaweed, licorice, and pepper as well tons of minerality all emerge from this powerful, full-bodied, structured 2016 that has the purity of fruit and balance that’s the hallmark of this great, great vintage. Forget bottles for 4-5 years and enjoy over the following two decades."

    WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - "The 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape is one of the few inky colored wines in the vintage. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and ripe with notable tannin, it offers beautiful notes of blackberry, shitake mushrooms, licorice and pepper meats. It plays in the 2014 vintage’s forward, supple nature, but has real depth and concentration. I don’t think it will be the longest lived Beaucastel, but it will have 15-20 years of overall longevity."

    Wine Advocate: 97
    James Suckling: 99
    Jeb Dunnuck: 96 Points
    Chateauneuf du Pape doesn't get much better than this. In fact, Rhone blends don't get much better than this. The legendary Chateau de Beaucastel needs almost no introduction and is a benchmark of quality for the appellation. Consistently earning high praise from critics, it has previously won Wine Spectator's Wine of the Year award. The 2016 Beaucastel only deepens the legacy with a wine that knocks it out of the park. Combining the perfectly ripened fruit from the great 2016 vintage with the winemaking prowess of the Perrin family, Beaucastel has created a legend in the making.

    Rarely do you see such unanimous praise from critics across the board. Chateau de Beaucastel in 2016 is as much of a sure thing as you can get. Consider the following quotes:

    "I was blown away by how well Beaucastel's 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape was showing" - The Wine Advocate

    "This is a stunning Beaucastel. A classic" - James Suckling

    "A ripe, sexy, rounded style" - Jeb Dunnuck

    The palate on this wine is full-bodied and laden with tremendous concentration and depth of fruit. This fantastic wine is youthful and its charms will continue to evolve for years to come. This is the type of wine to buy several bottles of and marvel as it evolves and gains complexity over time. Exuberant in youth, remarkably poised after a few years and a confident, welcome friend at 10 plus years of age, this is a stunner to enjoy at every stage of its development.

    The previous vintage (2015) was an amazing wine, but the 2016 appears to be even better! Chateau de Beaucastel is a wow wine, which is a must have for wine lovers.

    JAMES SUCKLING 99 POINTS - "This is a stunning Beaucastel. A classic! Has a superb array of fruit, ranging from red, through to blue, darker purple and black. Nuances of dark, stony minerals, spices, wild flowers and herbs. So fleshy. This has impeccable balance, super-silky tannins and an extraordinarily long finish. This has decades ahead of it. Drink or hold."

    WINE ADVOCATE 97 POINTS - "Bottled only a week before my visit, I was blown away by how well Beaucastel's 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape was showing. It's full-bodied, creamy, lush and rich, with layers of raspberry fruit, garrigue and spice that unfold across a seamless palate. No doubt it will go through cycles of being open and closed throughout its lifespan, but it would be a mistake to simply order a case, put it into storage and forget about it without trying one first and swooning over the sheer lusciousness and youthful complexity."

    JEB DUNNUCK 96 POINTS - "Being bottled the day of my visit, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape checks in as a blend of 30% Mourvèdre, 30% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Counoise, and the rest a mix of permitted varieties. It offers a ripe, sexy, rounded style that quickly shows more structure, minerality, and tannin with time in the glass. Blackberries, blueberries, smoked earth, violets, and garrigue all give way to a full-bodied, deep, structured Beaucastel that's going to benefit from 5-7 years of bottle age and keep for two decades. It reminds me of the 2001."

Impressively blends concentration and energy and finishes with impressive, gently tannic persistence."

    WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS - "The 2016 Lirac Cuvee Reservee (that's the American label, elsewhere it's just labeled Lirac), a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 10% Cinsault, is a terrific value for consumers looking for an authentic Southern Rhône. It’s medium to full-bodied, with scents of ripe cherries, licorice and cracked pepper. The tannins are a bit firm, but they add a pleasantly rough edge to the long, spicy finish. Drink it over the next 5-6 years."

This full-bodied blend is fabulously concentrated and lush, with ripe fruit flavors of raspberries and stone fruits, an intriguing hint of almond paste and a rich, long finish tinged with licorice. It should drink well for up to a decade."

    Bright and intense ruby color robe. The nose has a very pleasant complexity, opening on notes of grilled mocha, menthol and clove. When moved, it releases fresh scents of red fruits and scrubland. The palate is well-balanced, the attack is strong and fresh. It is followed by a very wide and complex structure. The tightly knit tannins are definitely present but in a noble way. The finish is lasting and slightly woody. This wine will develop hints of chocolate and leather after aging 5 years.

    Ventoux is a wine growing appellation in the southeastern part of the Rhone with vineyards blanketing the south and west-facing slopes of Mount Ventoux. This optimal location is blessed with intense sunshine which allows the grapes to achieve a good level of phenolic ripeness, while the cooler temperatures moderate this effect and allow the grapes extended hang time. The results show in the perfectly ripened fruit which maintain remarkable freshness.

    The Grenache/Syrah blend called La Terre du Petit Homme received a 91-93 Point score from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate with the review calling the wine a "Head turner" and a "Smokin' good effort." We simply call this wine an incredible value, which completely over delivers at less than $16.00 per bottle.

    WINE ADVOCATE 91-93 POINTS - "Tasted out of barrels, the 2015 Cotes du Ventoux la Terre du Petit Homme is a head turner. Made from equal parts Grenache and Syrah, it’s a full-bodied, incredibly pure red that offers ample notes of black raspberries, wild strawberries, garrigue and crushed flowers. It has a touch of oak to integrate, beautiful mid-palate depth and a great finish. It’s a smokin’ good effort that will have a decade of longevity."
