    WINE SPECTATOR 93 POINTS: Wine Spectator - "A focused, chalk-edged style, with piercing savory and olive notes out front, backed by red currant and bitter cherry flavors. The racy, mouthwatering finish allows the chalky spine to stretch out. Will be a winner when the fruit fills out fully. Best from 2017 through 2027." VINOUS MEDIA/ ANTONIO GALLONI-92 POINTS "Opaque ruby. Vibrant and sharply focused on the nose, displaying intense dark berry and floral scents complicated by suggestions of olive, pungent flowers and smoky minerals. Juicy, concentrated and gently sweet, offering sappy cherry and black currant flavors that become more lively and spicy with air. Shows excellent power and spicy thrust on an impressively long, youthfully tannic finish, leaving notes of dark berry liqueur and allspice behind."

    eROBERT PARKER 98 POINTS: "The Cornas of the vintage is Clape’s 2012 Cornas. An incredible effort, its inky purple/black color is followed by spectacular aromas and flavors of black raspberry, graphite, beef blood, iron, cedar and white pepper (among other things). This is Cornas at its finest, with insane aromatics, full-bodied richness and massive concentration, yet at the same time staying elegant, seamless and gorgeously pure. It’s more approachable than the 2010, but should still need 3-4 years of cellaring and have two decades of longevity."

    eROBERT PARKER 91-93 POINTS: "Pierre-Marie also excelled in 2013, and his Cornas Renaissance offers fleshy, ripe, full-bodied notes of powdered rock, cassis, black raspberry and ground herbs. With time in the glass, it becomes dominated by its mineral-component and it gains mid-palate depth and richness. It will drink reasonably well on release, but have 15 years or more of overall longevity."

    WINE SPECTATOR - 92 POINTS: Vibrant, with a racy, chalky spine leading waves of dark olive, black currant and roasted alder. Fresh bay leaf notes waft through the finish for added nuance. The fruit is a bit more forward than most Cornas, but this still merits some cellaring. 525 cases made. –JM

    VINOUS, JOSH REYNOLDS 90 - 93 POINTS - "Tasted in components: #1, from Patou: Vibrant red berries and fresh flowers on the nose. Spicy and sharply focused, offering good lift and cut on the back half. Quite elegant, with a silky finish and lingering sweetness. #2, from young-ish vines in Reynard: Black raspberry, peppery spice and violet aromas, with a building suggestion of smokiness. Bright, juicy and spicy on the palate, with intense dark berry and floral pastille flavors and a touch of candied licorice. Ample but lithe Cornas with strong finishing grip. #3, from Petite Côte: Wilder and more pungent than the preceding foudres, showing an intense smoke- and game-accented black and blue fruit character and a hint of allspice. Sappy and broad in the mouth, with strong dark fruit and floral flavors and a bracing jolt of acidity. Clings very nicely on the finish, with solid tannins adding shape."

    WINE ADVOCATE 91 POINTS -"The 2014s are more elegant, silky and streamlined, yet offer classic characters and will evolve gracefully. Readers looking for a smoking good Cornas to drink over the coming 7-8 years need to latch onto bottles of the 2014 Cornas Renaissance, which is the estate’s entry-level cuvée. Classic Clape in every way, with its meaty, bloody, iron, crushed rock and violet-tinged fruit, it’s medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and supple, with beautiful fruit. There's plenty of fine tannin here, but it also has a solid density of fruit and a beautiful texture. It's already hard to resist."

    Etienne Becheras’s domaine is polycultural. It extends for 12 hectares principally within the confines of the village of Arras which borders and overlooks the Rhone River on the western side. The domaine farms organically.

    Saint Joseph Rouge Tour Joviac: This special, limited cuvée (approximately 3000 bottles per annum) is produced from two parcels in Arras that are on steep, rocky hillsides. Although from young vines, the excellent position of the vineyards yields a wine of compelling concentration, plum-like fruit and emphatic structure. Vinification is similar to the St. Joseph “Tradition” but the elevage is longer. Again, the wine is neither fined nor filtered.

    eROBERT PARKER 92-94 POINTS - "Not yet bottled, 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."

    eROBERT PARKER 95 POINTS: 'The 2003 Rayas Chateauneuf du Pape has gone from strength to strength and now looks to be the finest vintage since the monumental 1995. Deep ruby to the rim with that classic Rayas nose of flowers, kirsch liqueur, black raspberries, crushed rocks, and minerals, the wine is dense and concentrated, with a broad, savory mouthfeel, sweet yet silky tannin, fabulous persistence, and a blockbuster finish that just goes on and on. This is a reassuringly profound Rayas that seems to suggest that Emmanuel Reynaud has finally figured out this cold-climate terroir in a warm climate appellation. This wine should be given 3-4 years of bottle age, and drunk over the following 20+ years."

    ROBERTPARKER.COM 93 POINTS: "The elegant 2006 Rayas Chateauneuf du Pape is not as powerful as the 2005 or 2007, but it offers a deep ruby color as well as opulent, fleshy, kirsch and black raspberry characteristics along with hints of spring flowers and loamy soil. A sexy, showy, beautifully balanced, silky effort, it is already approachable, and should drink well for two decades."

    eROBERT PARKER 90 POINTS: "The 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape showed beautifully, with medium to full-bodied richness, lots of dark fruits, roasted herbs and peppery aromatics, excellent mid-palate depth and a great finish. Made from 40% Grenache, 35% Mourvèdre and 25% Syrah that was completely destemmed and aged 12 months in a combination of tank and new barrels, it has more richness and depth than most in the vintage."

    WINE SPECTATOR 92 POINTS:"Solid, with a core of dark plum and boysenberry fruit pumping along, studded with anise and warm fruitcake hints and lightly coated with a ganache note on the finish. A solid bolt of graphite adds depth. Best from 2016 through 2024. 1,200 cases made." –JM

    WINE ADVOCATE 95 POINTS - "Checking in as a blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Renaissance is another super-sized, full-bodied, concentrated, and yet pure and polished example of this cuvee. Offering up notions of sweet cassis, blackberries, salt block, violets and vanilla bean, it's enjoyable now in an exuberant, flashy sort of way, yet needs cellaring to show its full potential. Give bottles another 3-4 years and enjoy through 2030."

    The estate has been practicing biodynamic viticulture since 2003, and was certified organic as of 2010.

    Wines from Le Clos du Caillou are Rhône blends at their most intense. Concentrated and richly textured, these organically raised, older-vine wines capture the spice and silk of old-vine Grenache grown on the region’s finest terroirs. Each wine too reflects the native perfumes of the south, the “garrigue” blend of thyme, rosemary and lavender that grows wild among the estate’s vines.
    The estate’s silkiest, most delicate Châteauneuf-du-Pape, composed primarily of older-vine Grenache. ‘Safres’ refers to the wine’s terroir of compacted sand, which in the wine translates as a supple texture and smooth tannins.

    WINE ADVOCATE 95 POINTS - "Coming all from the sandy soils of the Cristia lieu-dit, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a knockout effort that’s up with the top wines in the vintage. Giving up thrilling Grenache-driven notes of licorice soaked blackberries, caramelized meats, chocolate and roasted herbs, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a beautiful texture and superb overall balance and length. In short, it’s a knockout old-vine Grenache cuvée to drink over the coming decade or longer."

    ROBERTPARKER.COM 89 POINTS: "The 2012 Vinsobres is a terrific wine. Made from a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvedre, it gives up a pretty bouquet of sweet black cherry, new leather, crushed rock and pepper to go with a medium-bodied, silky, pure and polished style on the palate. It's well worth its price and will impress for 4-6 years."

    Item #: 345872

    Vinsobres was included in the Cotes-du-Rhone Villages appellation in 1957, but it was not until 2006 that it finally gained its own status as a standalone appellation. Situated northeast of Chateauneuf- du-Pape by some 45 km, Vinsobres is the northernmost appellation in the southern Cotes du Rhone. Nestled in the foothills on the northern flank of the giant Mount Ventoux, it is off the valley floor with vineyards as high as 400 meters above sea level. The hillside vineyards of Vinsobres are planted with Grenache and Mourvedre primarily where they like the more direct sun and protection from the Mistral winds, while Syrah is largely planted on the plateau above where higher elevation and the cool northern winds keep the freshness and spice that the grape can offer. The soils here are a mixture of sand and clay with limestone rocks on the hillsides while the plateau sees the vines rooted in very shallow soils over limestone.

    Once inside the winery at Chaume-Arnaud, one thing visitors will notice is the absence of any wood barrels or vats. Here, all the wines are vinified in tanks. The results are wines that are pure, clean, and without makeup allowing their terroir and varietal to express themselves entirely.

    There is a range of wines produced here, but the majority of the production is the Vinsobres rouge which is typically a blend of 60% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Cinsault, and 10% Mourvedre. In addition, there are two wines under the Côtes-du-Rhône appellation, “Petit Coquet”, which is 80% Grenache and 20% Cinsault from younger vines found below the hillside, and a wine simply labeled Côtes-du-Rhône that has 20% Cinsault and 20% Syrah along with Grenache from younger vines in the Vinsobres appellation. The two top wines of the estate are the “La Cadène” cuvées. The La Cadène rouge is equal parts Grenache, Mourvedre, and Syrah from the oldest and best plots of the estate. Production here varies depending on the vintage from a mere 3,000 bottles to as much as 9,000 in really extraordinary vintages. The La Cadène blanc is made from 50% Marsanne and 50% Viognier planted on the plateau.

    We are excited to present the inaugural release of the 2014 Circus Bear, another fantastic value priced wine from distributor/importer Kimberly Jones. You have enjoyed many of her wines although you may not have realized she was the one behind the label. Most recently, our customers snapped up cases upon cases of the Arbalest, her value priced Bordeaux. Kimberly has been successful in developing relationships with talented winemakers to bring high quality wines to consumers.

    Circus Bear is a collaboration with Jean Roger Calvet of Calvet-Thunevin. It is a blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Carignan from 60 year old vineyards of schist. These low-yielding vines produce grapes with excellent concentration and wonderful texture. This wine is full-bodied and boasts tremendous purity of fruit with very little oak influence letting the grapes speak for themselves. The bold label is an homage to the great fighting bears of the Pyrenees. The majestic Pyrenees Mountains tower over Maury and form the natural frontier between France and Spain.

    This delicious Rhone style blend is made in Maury in Southern France and carries the Cotes du Roussillon Villages appellation. Maury recently gained attention when Dave Phinney (who created Orin Swift wines including The Prisoner, Abstract and more) purchased vineyards in the area. Phinney now makes the popular Shatter and D66 wines here. The dry and sunny climate enable the grapes to achieve optimum ripeness. Winds from the Atlantic moderate the temperature and cool the grapes to ensure the wines have balance.

    There is limited availability in the USA for this inaugural release. Enjoy this crowd-pleasing wine while we have it!

    From 60-year-old vines planted in the black schist soils of Maury. A blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Carignan. The wine displays aromas of purple flowers, deep red berry fruits, anise and baking spice. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and polished with a seamless texture. The fruit forward flavors of black cherry and dark raspberry are augmented with notions of licorice and garrigue on the long finish.

    eROBERT PARKER 91-93 POINTS: "Looking at the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape, which is still aging in foudre, Paul-Vincent normally does four separate blends and keeps them in separate foudre (one with more Mourvedre, one with more Syrah, etc.) before blending everything together prior to bottling. However, due to the miniscule crop in 2013, he was only able to do a single blend. Nevertheless, I was able to taste it from multiple foudres (and unsurprisingly, each showed dramatically different), with most rating in the low to mid-90s. From excruciatingly low yields and hitting 14.8% alcohol, it’s clearly an outstanding wine and has pretty, complex aromatics, excellent concentration, medium to full-bodied richness and lively acidity. There’s a slight Burgundian feel here, and I suspect it will be reasonably approachable in its youth, with 10-12 years of overall longevity."

    ROBERTPARKER.COM 100 POINTS: "The two special cuvees are both as good as wine can get. The 2007 Châteauneuf du Pape la Combe des Fous is the more pure, elegant and seamless of the two, but it’s still a huge wine that has overflowing notions of smoked meats, ripe black currants, toasted spice, liquid smoke and garrigue. It’s utterly seamless on the palate, with fine tannin, no hard edges and incredible purity of fruit. It’s firing on all cylinders but certainly has another decade or more of prime drinking."

The juicy, focused finish is given shape by silky, harmonious tannins and leaves behind a gently sweet dark berry note."
