  2. COURSODON 2016 SAINT JOSEPH L'OLIVAIE

    Item #: i_322198
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Advocate: 94-96
    ROBERT PARKER 91-93 POINTS: "Sourced from 60-year-old vines and aged in 15% to 20% new oak, the 2016 Saint Joseph l'Olivaie offers a concentrated mouthful of black olive and cherry fruit, a velvety texture and a long, cool finish. This medium to full-bodied wine should drink well on release and for up to decade. Young Jerôme Coursodon now farms 16 hectares in Saint Joseph, centered around Mauves, just outside Tournon. He considers the 2016s more approachable than the dense 2015s."

    JEB DUNNUCK 91-93 POINTS: "Leading off the 2016s from barrel, the 2016 Saint Joseph L'Olivaie comes from the lieu-dit of the same name and vines averaging 60 years in age. It’s a ripe, concentrated beauty that's loaded with notions of black raspberries, scorched earth, spice and pepper. With medium to full-bodied richness, ripe, present tannin and a great finish, it's going to be a great value. I continue to love the wines from the young Jerome Coursodon, who pulls from roughly 16 hectares of vines all in the southern part of Saint Joseph, mostly just outside the village of Mauves. The 2015s are monster, blockbuster styled efforts that I suspect won’t appeal to the traditionalists out there, but are singular wines. The 2016s are more elegant and finesse-driven, yet still pack in more sweet fruit than just about everyone else out there."

  3. GEORGE VERNAY 2016 COTES DU RHONE SAINTE AGATHE

    Item #: i_345433
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Vinous Media: 91
  4. GUIGAL 2015 COTE ROTIE BRUNE ET BLONDE

    Item #: i_300085
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Advocate: 93
    WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "Much more open and inviting than the Hermitage, Guigal's 2015 Cote Rotie Brune et Blonde boasts hallmark aromas of dried flowers, herbs, raspberries and black olives. Medium to full-bodied, it's simultaneously rich and silky, showing fine, balanced acidity on the crisp finish. Considering it may account for as much as a third of the appellation's volume, it's a remarkable achievement and testament to the tremendous quality of the vintage. Even folks who buy and cellar the La Las will want to have some of this in their cellars for early drinking."

  5. SAINT COSME 2017 SAINT JOSEPH

    Item #: i_345167
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    JEB DUNNUCK 91 - 94 POINTS - "As in 2016, the 2017 St. Joseph is slightly fresher and more focused than the Crozes release and offers a terrific perfume of raspberries, violets, spice, and a hint of bacon fat. It’s seamless, medium-bodied, and incredibly elegant on the palate, with plenty of sweet fruit and a great finish."

    WINE ADVOCATE 90 - 92 POINTS - "From granitic soils at the northern end of Saint Joseph, the 2017 Saint Joseph reveals scents of smoke, crushed stone and black olives. Medium to full-bodied, it's nicely concentrated and ripe, with fine-grained tannins lingering in a dusty manner on the long finish."
