  1. La Bastide Saint Dominique Chateauneuf Du Pape Secrets De Pignan 2016
    WA97
    $54.98
    Availability:In Stock
    97 Points!  All Grenache from the sandy soils of Pignan (nord) and matured in stainless steel, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Secrets de Pignan boasts enormous levels of purple raspberries, plums and apricots. Full-bodied, plush and creamy textured, it delivers waves of supple, rich, concentrated fruit, plus enough spicy-herbal complexity to keep things interesting. An unadulterated expression of ripe Grenache, it's even more compelling than the stellar 2015 version. - Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com

  2. Mas de Boislauzon Chateauneuf du Pape Tintot 2015
    JD98
    $74.98
    Availability:In Stock
    98 Points!  The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Tintot offers more black fruits, olive tapenade, charred meats and graphite, as well as a huge, concentrated, incredibly pure style on the palate. While the Quet is all about opulence and pleasure, this has a more focused, pure style, while not losing a beat on concentration and purity. I'd gladly put this up against Beaucastel's Hommage cuvée. Enjoy this incredible expression of Châteauneuf du Pape anytime over the coming 20-25 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

  3. Chateau Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape 2017 Pre-Arrival
    DEC95
    JD95
    WA95
    $74.98
    95-97 Points!  A tremendous effort, might Beaucastel's 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape outshine even the 2016? I tasted a preliminary blend that Marc Perrin said represented 80% of the wine, and it showed ridiculous floral and fresh aromas of licorice, lavender and spice, all backed by tremendous fruit that went beyond black and red and into hints of exotic stone fruit. The final blend will likely contain more than 10% Counoise, the highest proportion ever utilized at the estate. It's rich and concentrated yet silky and lithe, with a fantastically long, elegant finish. - Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com

  4. Solitude Chateauneuf Du Pape Vin de la Solitude 2016
    VM93
    $89.98
    Availability:In Stock
    Beyond cool. A true 'throwback' wine from Solitude, down to their copying of the original bottle and label from the 18th century!  Solitude's own research showed that the blends were very different back then, a time when the Grenache grape did not dominate.  The wine was made with a large number of cofermented grape varieties. Macerations were longer than they are nowadays. 30% Counoise, 25% hundred year-old Grenache noir, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre, 5% Clairette, 5% Bourboulenc, 5% Roussanne, Clairette rose, Grenache blanc. All grapes were co-fermented and vinified as whole clusters and vinified in tronconic wood vats. Only 944 bottles produced

  5. Solitude Chateauneuf Du Pape Cornelia Constanza 2016
    JD98
    WA95
    $94.98
    Availability:In Stock
    98 Points!  Pure Grenache brought up in a mix of foudre, old barrels, and stainless steel, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cornelia Constanza is up there with the finest versions of this cuvée to date. Huge notes of cassis, kirsch liqueur, crushed flowers, and incense give way to a rich, powerful, yet graceful wine that has no hard edges and a great finish. It’s orgasmic stuff and Grenache lovers shouldn't miss it! - Jeb Dunnuck

  6. Solitude Chateauneuf Du Pape Cuvee Barberini 2016
    WS93
    JD96
    WA94
    $74.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points!  Darker colored and more modern in style, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Barberini is a parcel selection of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 20% Mourvèdre, aged in 40% new oak. Despite the new oak, it stays firmly planted in the southern Rhône and is a rich, opulent, gorgeously layered wine. With some background oak in its blackberries, cassis, toasted spice, and graphite aromas and flavors as well as a touch of chocolate, it's full-bodied, powerful, and concentrated on the palate, with terrific balance and length. It’s approachable today but will be better in 2-3 years and keep for two decades. - Jeb Dunnuck

  7. Domaine Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Cuvee Reservee 2017
    WA93
    VM93
    $59.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points!  A blend of 60% Clairette, 20% Grenache Blanc and 10% each Bourboulenc and Roussanne, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Cuvee Reservee is the best example of this cuvée I can recall. It's medium to full-bodied, with a lush, creamy mouthfeel and ripe flavors of melon and citrus balanced by hints of anise and lime zest. It finishes with freshness, vibrancy and brightness. I've been deliberately conservative with the aging estimate, as I like wines like this young, but it's capable of aging for a decade or more. - Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com

  8. Pierre Henri Morel Chateauneuf du Pape Lieu Dit Pignan 2016 Pre-Arrival
    JD96
    $54.98
    96-98 Points!  The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Lieu dit Pignan is mostly Grenache (there’s 25% Mourvèdre) sourced from one of the great terroirs in the appellation. It is scheduled to be bottled in August of this year. This inky colored beauty gives up a primordial bouquet of blueberries, cassis, violets, lavender, and honeysuckle. Deep, full-bodied, and incredibly pure, with a mountain of baby fat, this awesome effort is going to take 5-7 years to shed some fruit and show nuance, but it's a brilliant effort. - Jeb Dunnuck

  9. Maison La Berthaude Cuvee Tradition Chateauneuf du Pape 2017
    JD90
    $19.98
    Availability:In Stock
    90-92 Points!  A blend of 80/20 Grenache and Syrah, the 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Galets de La Berthaude reveals a healthy ruby/purple color as well as outstanding notes of black raspberries, black cherries, spice, and garrigue. It has a more red-fruited character, medium to full body, moderate acidity, and ample texture, and should be rock-solid. - Jeb Dunnuck

    JD93
    WA93
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points!  ...the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a gem that’s loaded with notions of ripe strawberries, kirsch, garrigue, and spice. It has everything in the right places, a layered, elegant profile, moderate tannins, and impeccable balance. Drink it over the coming 10-15 years. - Jeb Dunnuck
