  3. CHATEAU DE SAINT COSME 2018 COTE ROTIE

    Item #: i_350498
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Vinous Media: 92-94
    JEB DUNNUCK 92-94 POINTS: "One of the gems in the Northern Rhône lineup is the 2018 Côte Rôtie, which, as with all of Louis’ wines, wasn’t destemmed and was brought up in 30-40% new oak. Stunning aromatics of black raspberries, olive tapenade, ground pepper, violets, and assorted meat notes all flow to a medium to full-bodied, opulent, seamless Côte Rôtie that has a smoking good texture. Count me impressed."

  4. GEORGES VERNAY 2018 SYRAH FLEUR DE MAI

    Item #: i_353492
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Fleurs de Mai comes from very old Syrah vines planted by George Vernay on the upper plateau. Prior to being planted to vines, the vineyard was a peach orchard, and Fleurs de Mai references a variety of peach. This medium ruby-colored effort gives up plenty of exotic, peppery, almost tropical notes as well as blackberry and black raspberry fruits, medium body, fine tannins, and a sexy, incredibly gulpable style.

  5. JABOULET 2018 HERMITAGE LA MAISON BLEUE

    Item #: i_351949
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 93-95
    Vinous Media: 94
    James Suckling: 94
    Jeb Dunnuck: 96


    JEB DUNNUCK 94-96 POINTS - "The 2,000-case 2018 Hermitage Maison Bleue comes from the eastern side of the appellation and is a much more fleshy, opulent wine compared to the more mineral-laced La Chapelle. Jammy blackberry and cassis fruit, notes of ground herbs, graphite, and violets, full-bodied richness, beautiful concentration, and a great finish all make for a compelling Hermitage. It’s going to benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age."



    WINE ADVOCATE 93-95 POINTS - "The 2018 Hermitage La Maison Bleue offers up aromas of mocha, raspberries and a hint of black olive. It's full-bodied, velvety and plush, with a finish that's marked by hints of maple syrup and a slightly open-knit quality. It should drink well for at least a decade after release."

  7. MONIER PERREOL 2018 ST JOSEPH

    Item #: i_352340
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Rhone legends Jean-Pierre Monier and Phillipe Perreol combined forces nearly a decade ago to meet market demand for their sought-after Northern Rhone cuvées. The duo vinifies pure and soil-driven wines, crafted from biodynamically farmed fruit. Their Saint-Joseph is fermented with 20% whole clusters and aged in cask, leading to a dark fruited wine marked by notes of olives, red currants, black pepper, and wet rocks.

    Handmade wines. Biodynamic approach since 1996.

    The Domaine Perréol produces a very good Saint-Joseph red called Châtelet from limestone over granite soils, its vineyard at the top of a hill partly in the commune of Saint-Désirat, partly in the commune of Andanc. Notably pure wines here.

  9. PAUL JABOULET 2018 HERMITAGE LA CHAPELLE

    Item #: i_353847
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 98-100
    Vinous Media: 96
    James Suckling: 96
    Jeb Dunnuck: 97-99 Points
    WINE ADVOCATE 98-100 POINTS - "Jaboulet's 2018 Hermitage La Chapelle features scents of crushed stone, violets and cassis. It's a classic trio, backed by a wine that's full-bodied, rich and powerful yet also airy, somehow carrying intense plum and black olive flavors without any sense of heaviness or excess weight. Then the wine finishes long and softly dusty, with tannins that accentuate its savory character, picking up delicious hints of licorice at the very end. The proportion of new oak has been trimmed back to a very reasonable 20% and is hardly noticeable in the wine."

    JEB DUNNUCK 97-99 POINTS - "A deep, powerful, primordial wine (which is exactly what you’d expect for a great vintage of this cuvée), the inky hued 2018 Hermitage La Chapelle offers tons of crème de cassis as well as a liquid rock-like minerality, peppery herbs, burning embers, and graphite aromas and flavors. The palate mirrors the intensity of the bouquet and is full-bodied, concentrated, and tight, yet still packs a huge amount of baby fat. The 2018 is a beautifully pure, balanced, massively endowed La Chapelle that will need a decade of cellaring and keep for 3-4 decades with no problems."

  11. RENE ROSTAING 2018 COTE ROTIE COTE BLONDE

    Item #: i_354273
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 97-99
    Vinous Media: 96-97
    Jeb Dunnuck: 97-99
    JEB DUNNUCK 97-99 POINTS -"A wine that’s going to push the upper limits of my scale, the 2018 Côte Rôtie Côte Blonde has a wonderful sense of opulence and elegance paired with huge minerality and power. Giving up primordial notes of perfectly ripe currants, new saddle leather, spice, and wildflowers, it has a magical texture, huge richness and depth, loads of tannins, and a huge finish. It made my pulse jump."

    WINE ADVOCATE 97-99 POINTS -"The most tannic of the "big three" bottlings this year, the 2018 Cote Rotie la Cote Blonde features elegant hints of mixed herbs entwined around bold boysenberry fruit. It's medium to full-bodied, with plentiful fine-grained tannins that firm up on the long finish. Embryonic, but oh so promising, it should blossom in another five years or so."

    Item #: i_352159
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 96-99
    Vinous Media: 96-97
    WINE ADVOCATE 96-99 POINTS - Marked by hints of mint and herbal tea on the nose, the 2018 Côte Rôtie Côte Brune is another terrific effort from this parcel of vines that was replanted in 2000. Raspberries and blueberries surge forward on the medium to full-bodied palate, building in richness and complexity on the firm, palate-coating finish."

  13. RENE ROSTAING 2018 COTE ROTIE LA LANDONNE

    Item #: i_351746
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 99+
    Wine Spectator: 96
    Jeb Dunnuck: 97 Points
    WINE ADVOCATE 96-98 POINTS - "For the 2018 Cote Rotie la Landonne, Pierre Rostaing put together a blend from two barrels. Wow. Toast and mocha notes frame raspberries and blueberries in this medium to full-bodied offering. It's simultaneously rich, silky and concentrated. Packed with flavor and depth, it looks as if it will be approachable within a couple of years yet be capable of evolving for a couple of decades."

    JEB DUNNUCK 96-98 POINTS - "The 2018 Côte Rôtie La Landonne offers the classic meaty, mineral, and masculine style that’s the hallmark of this terroir. It’s powerful and full-bodied, with massive minerality as well as notes of bloody meat, ground pepper, and graphite. It’s another serious, concentrated, powerful 2018 that’s going to demand bottle age."
