  1. Mouton Rothschild Pauillac 1997
    WA90
    $499.98
    Availability:In Stock
    90 Points! Only 55% of the harvest was utilized for the 1997 Mouton-Rothschild. One of the most forward and developed Moutons over recent years, it possesses all the charm and fleshiness this vintage can provide. A blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot, the wine exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, and an open-knit nose of cedar wood, blackberry liqueur, cassis, and coffee. Fleshy, ripe, and mouth-filling, with low acidity, soft tannin, and admirable concentration and length, this delicious Pauillac will be drinkable in 2-3 years, and should age for 15+. It is an impressive effort for this vintage. - Robert Parker, robertparker.com Learn More

    $29.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points! The 2016 Crozes Hermitage Domaine De Thalabert offers a rocking (and classic) bouquet of ripe black fruits intermixed with notions new saddle leather, pepper, garrigue, and hints of bacon fat. This ripe, medium to full-bodied, silky wine has remarkable purity, is already complex, and finishes with serious length. Drink it over the coming 10-15 years. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  3. Paul Jaboulet Aine Crozes Hermitage Blanc Mule Blanche 2017
    WA94
    $29.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points! A barrel-fermented blend of 50% Marsanne and 50% Roussanne, the 2017 Crozes Hermitage Domaine Mule Blanche is a terrific example of what those varieties can do when they're grown in the right location and vinified with care. Gentle toasted grain scents waft from the glass, along with notes of marshmallow and melon. It's full-bodied and richly textured, with notes of pineapple, crème brûlée and citrus on the long finish. - Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com Learn More
  4. Paul Jaboulet Aine Hermitage La Chapelle 2016
    JD95-97
    WA95-97
    VM96-98
    $184.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96-98 Points! Dark purple. A highly expressive, mineral-accented bouquet evokes fresh blackberry and blueberry, candied flowers, incense and exotic spices. Sweet, palate-staining black and blue fruit liqueur and violet pastille flavors are complicated by suggestions of cracked pepper and bitter chocolate; a spicecake nuance gains strength with aeration. Steadily building tannins add shape and grip to the extremely long, incisive finish, which emphatically repeats the floral and mineral notes. I wouldn't be surprised to see this wine turn out as well as the amazing 2015 version. - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media Learn More
  5. Paul Jaboulet Aine Hermitage La Chapelle 2011
    JD95
    JS97
    WA95
    VM94
    $149.98
    Availability:In Stock
    97 Points! A gorgeous intensity of plum, spice and grilled meat on the nose. Cloves and hints of dried spices. This is a big, structured La Chappelle. Full and powerful with chewy tannins and a long, long finish. A bit austere and muscular but gorgeous. Tar, spice, dried meat and asphalt. Needs to be aged for at least another five or six years. This is another 1991 in the making. - JamesSuckling.com, 2014 Learn More
  6. Clos St. Antonin Cotes du Rhone Villages Plan de Dieu 2016
    JD94
    $19.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points! Even better, the 2016 Côtes du Rhône Villages Plan de Dieu has to be one of the great wines from this appellation, which comes from an ocean of vines located on the valley floor between Vacqueyras and Cairanne. Made from 50% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, and 20% Syrah brought up in foudre and demi-muids, it offers awesome notes of cassis, blackberries, spice box, and licorice. Ripe, full-bodied, and powerful, yet also balanced and pure, do your best to latch onto a few bottles. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  7. Gourt de Mautens IGP Vaucluse Blanc 2015
    $59.98
    Availability:In Stock
    Sporting a medium gold color, the 2015 Vaucluse Blanc is a blend of just about every white variety out there, but is largely Grenache Blanc. It offers a rich, backward bouquet of ripe peach, caramelized pineapple, honeysuckle, and pear. Medium-bodied, concentrated, and balanced, with a layered texture, it’s an interesting white that I suspect will be better in 6-12 months and keep for 3-4 years. It’s geared for the dinner table. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  8. Puech-Haut Coteaux du Languedoc Prestige 2015
    WA93
    $19.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points! The 2015 Saint Drezery Prestige is a ripe, sexy beauty that gives up full-bodied notes of black cherries, melted licorice and roasted herbs. Like all the wines from this estate, it has lots of richness and texture, yet stays balanced, lively and pure. It's a year in and year out value that's a no-brainer purchase. It will drink beautifully over the coming 4-5 years (possibly even longer). - Jeb Dunnuck, robertparker.com Learn More

  10. Bernardins Beaumes de Venise Rouge 2017
    DEC94
    $17.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points! Aged for 10-12 months in stainless steel, this has intense juniper and rosemary notes on the very rounded and savoury palate. The tannins are robust but ripe and will need time to settle, and the acidity is fierce. It's very powerful but balanced overall, retaining freshness. An impressive wine with tremendous focus and seething energy. Another excellent vintage for one of the best value wines in the southern Rhône. - Decanter Magazine Learn More
  11. Maucoil Cotes du Rhone Villages Vieilles Vignes 1895 2017
    $19.98
    Availability:In Stock
    ...the 2017 Côtes du Rhône Villages 1895 is a beauty! Deeply colored, concentrated, full-bodied and layered, it has a modern style but terrific purity and depth of fruit. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  12. Pesquie Cotes du Ventoux Terrasses 2017
    JD94
    WA91-93
    $11.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points! Longtime readers will know that I love this cuvée, which is year in, year out, one of the great value buys out there. The 2017 Terrasses is even better than the 2016 and ranks with the finest vintages I’ve tasted, matching the stunning 2010. The essence of kirsch liqueur, wild strawberries, and wildflowers flow to a full-bodied, plump, deep, beautifully layered and sexy wine that has medium to full body, ripe tannins, notable minerality, and a great finish. A blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah that was all destemmed and brought up in concrete tanks, this is a raw, naked expression of this fabulous terroir located just south of Mount Ventoux. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  13. Domaine La Garrigue Vacqueyras La Cantarelle 2014
    VM92
    Special Price $14.98 Regular Price $29.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92 Points! Vivid ruby-red. Expansive aromas of red fruit preserves, lavender and cola, and a hint of garrigue in the background. Silky, smooth and sweet on the palate, offering sappy black raspberry and boysenberry flavors and a touch of candied licorice. Fine-grained tannins give shape to the penetrating finish, which leaves behind a suave floral pastille note. These vines are reportedly between 80 and 100 years of age now. - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media Learn More

  16. Berliquet Saint Emilion 2018 Pre-Arrival
    JD93-96
    JS94-95
    WA93-95
    $46.98

    93-96 Points! A rough blend of 78% Merlot and 22% Franc made by the team at Canon (Thomas Duclos also consults here), the 2018 Château Berliquet sports a deeper purple color as well as a complex, layered style in its black raspberry, white flowers, dried earth, spice, and forest floor aromas and flavors. It's medium to full-bodied, has a rounded, expansive texture, beautiful tannins, and brilliant freshness and purity as well as a serious kick of minerality on the finish. Coming from a smaller 10-hectare terroir located on the clay and limestone soils on the upper plateau, it will spend 16 months in 45% new French oak. Tasted twice. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com

    93-95 Points! This was really Nicolas Audebert’s first vintage at Berliquet, since the property was acquired by Chanel in the autumn of 2017. The most significant, immediate change from 2018 came from noticing that blocks of the vineyard had Merlot and Cabernet Franc interplanted. These used to be harvested together. This year the different cultivars were flagged and harvested separately so as to achieve optimal ripeness for both varieties. The 2018 Berliquet is blended of 78% Merlot and 22% Cabernet Franc and has 14.5% alcohol. Deep purple-black in color, it leaps from the glass with bold kirsch, blueberry compote and Black Forest cake with touches of cloves, lavender, menthol and lilacs. Medium to full-bodied and elegant, with lovely freshness lifting the densely packed blue and black fruit flavors, it has a velvety texture and long, earthy finish. Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
