    WINE SPECTATOR 92 POINTS This has a lively core of raspberry and bitter cherry coulis flavors, backed by energetic bramble and bay notes. A snap of dried anise and a fine chalky spine enlivens the finish further. Should unfurl with moderate cellaring. Best from 2017 through 2025. 1,250 cases made. –JM

    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."

    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 POINTS: "Another terrific vintage for this cuvee, the Syrah and Grenache-dominated 2014 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Latour de France Occultum Lapidem was harvested between the 12th of September and the 3rd of October with miniscule yields of 28 hectoliters per hectare. Completely destemmed and aged all in concrete tanks, its ruby opaque color is followed by complex notes of garrigue, leather, plums and violets. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and layered, with a great texture, this fruit-forward, balanced Roussillon is already hard to resist, but will continue drinking nicely for 6-7 years."

    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."

  • CHATEAU JUVENAL 2015 VENTOUX LA TERRE DU PETIT HOMME

    Item #: 350047

    This wine benefits from the magic touch of well-known consultant, Philippe Cambie whom wine critic Robert Parker has called, "The God of Grenache." Cambie has earned his reputation by producing numerous 100 Point wines in the Rhone. Under his guidance, Chateau Juvenal is making delicious wines from Ventoux in the Rhone Valley.

    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."

    Perseides is a smaller production wine made of 100% Grenache. This wine boasts great depth and intensity with polished tannins and a seamless texture. It also happened to receive a score of 93-95 Points by the Wine Advocate, which called it "a real tour de force". The review speaks for itself stating, "There are under 300 cases made and it offers an incredible bouquet of jammy blackberries, spring flowers, licorice and rose petals. Full- bodied, voluptuous, rounded and downright sexy, it should knock your socks off right out of the gate."

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.

In short, it’s a knockout old-vine Grenache cuvée to drink over the coming decade or longer."

    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.

  • CIRCUS BEAR 14 COTE DU ROUSSILLON CALVET-THUNEVIN

    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."

It will have a decade of overall longevity, and that’s saying something in 2014."
