  1. Lafond Tavel Rosé Roc-Epine 2018
    VM90
    $19.98
    Availability:In Stock
    90 Points! Bright orange. Mineral-accented cherry and citrus fruit aromas are complemented by building herb and floral nuances. Concentrated and sappy in the mouth, offering juicy red currant, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors that slowly turn sweeter on the back half. The mineral note returns on the long, penetrating finish, which hangs on with very good tenacity. - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media Learn More
  2. Maison La Berthaude Chateauneuf du Pape Vignes Centenaires Réserve 2016
    JD94
    WA93
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points! On another level, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Réserve des Vignes Centenaires is unquestionably the most sexy, ripe and exuberant in the lineup, offering kirsch liqueur, graphite, garrigue, and ample spice. It's rich, full-bodied, beautifully textured, and sexy. This beauty is based on 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, raised in 30% new French oak. Don’t miss it! - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  3. Maison La Berthaude Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes 2016
    JD91
    WA92
    $24.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92 Points! Hints of cedar and baking spices add modern touches to the full-bodied 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes. It's a big, rich wine, filled with cherries and red berries, turning a bit tannic on the long, cinnamon-dusted finish. - Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com Learn More
  4. Alary Cairanne La Brunote 2016
    JD91
    WA93
    $19.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points! Like the Vieilles Vignes, the 2016 Cairanne la Brunote is looking even better from bottle than it did last year out of tank. It's 60% Grenache, with the remainder a co-fermentation of Carignan and Mourvèdre. Two demi-muids account for approximately 15% of the blend, while the rest of the blend aged in concrete tanks. From older vines and richer clay soils, this is brighter and fresher than the Vieilles Vignes, with perfumed, mixed-berry fruit and just a hint of cocoa. It's full-bodied, richly concentrated and silky in texture, with a long finish that leaves you searching for another sip. - Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com Learn More
  5. Vieille Julienne Chateauneuf du Pape Les Trois Source 2016
    DEC94
    JD98
    $64.98
    Availability:In Stock
    98 Points! The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Trois Sources is straight-up sensational and isn’t far off the more expensive Reserve cuvée in style and quality. Huge notes of blackcurrants, black raspberries, crushed violets, licorice, and incredible minerality, as well as a smoking floral quality, all soar from the glass of this full-bodied, seamless, pure wine that readers should snatch up. With good acidity, awesome purity, and a great, great finish, it's an incredible wine any way you look at it. Drink it anytime over the coming two decades or more. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  6. Vieille Julienne Chateauneuf du Pape Les Haut Lieux 2016
    DEC95
    JD99
    $79.98
    Availability:In Stock
    99 Points! A true 'wow' wine, the deep, concentrated 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Hauts-Lieux (there's 20% Mourvèdre) offers awesome notes of blackcurrants, smoked meats, graphite, crushed rocks, and licorice. Extraordinarily concentrated, perfectly balanced, structured, and long, it's another sensational wine from this estate. It needs 4-5 years of bottle age and will cruise for 15-20 after that. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  7. Vieille Julienne Chateauneuf du Pape Réservé 2016
    DEC96
    JD100
    VM96+
    $289.98
    Availability:Out of Stock
    100 Points! A modern-day legend in the making is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Reserve from Jean-Paul Daumen, one of the greatest young wines I’ve ever tasted. This Grenache-dominated effort was brought up all in foudre and tastes like the essence of this incredible terroir located on the northern edge of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Deep purple-colored, with an intoxicating bouquet of black raspberries, crushed herbs, black licorice, spring flowers, and spice, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a deep, multi-dimensional texture, a huge mid-palate, and a finish that goes on for over a minute. Not far off the style of the Les Trois Sources, yet with another level of concentration, it has a certain accessibility yet won’t be at its best for another 4-5 years, but it will keep for another two decades or more. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  8. Paul Jaboulet Aine Crozes Hermitage Thalabert 2016
    JD94
    JS92-93
    WA93
    VM92-94
    $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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. Giraud Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition 2016 WS Top 100 2018 #31
    WS95
    JD95
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points! Moving to the reds, the base 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a blockbuster, and this is one of those cases where you have to wonder if it’s worth the cost of the special cuvées when this wine is so good. Maire describes the 2016 vintage as a mix of the 2010 and 2007 vintages, and I can’t disagree. This beautiful 2016 offers a terrific nose of black raspberries, garrigue, and peppered meat in a full-bodied, ripe, incredibly sexy, seamless style. It has a boatload of tannins, and despite its intensity and richness, is still elegant and seamless. Buy a case of this, trust me. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  19. Michel Gassier Costieres De Nimes Blanc Nostre Pais 2017
    WS91
    JD92
    WA92
    $15.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92 Points! As always, the 2017 Costières de Nîmes Nostre Païs shines for its purity and finesse. Made from 45% Grenache Blanc, 30% Roussanne, and the rest Clairette, Viognier, and Bourboulenc, it offers abundant notes of white peaches, orange zest, and honeysuckle. With medium body, a bright, vibrant, balanced texture, and building richness, it’s going to be versatile on the dinner table and drink nicely for 3-4 years, possibly longer. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
