Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe "La Crau" Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge 2016 3.0 LT

96 Wine Advocate
97 Jeb Dunnuck
98 James Suckling
(12/27/2018) "Impressive, complex array of wild cherries, raspberries, garrigue herbs, lightly spiced pastry and stony, chalky minerals. Super-fresh florals. The palate has superb texture, roundness, completeness, depth and detail. Powerful yet elegant with powdery tannins and essence-like red fruit. Super-fleshy, supple and dense core, then strong at the edges. Layer upon layer peels away on the finish. Resounding finesse and equilibrium, showing the full potential of the plateau La Crau. Drink or hold."

Paul Jaboulet Aine "La Chapelle" Hermitage 2015

98 Wine Advocate

(1/24/2018) "Lastly, and a legendary wine in the making, the 2015 Hermitage La Chapelle is reminiscent of the 1990 with its full-bodied, opulently, sexy, yet concentrated style. Offering sensational notes of blackcurrants, smoked herbs, beef blood, and chocolate, it's a huge yet elegant wine that has masses of sweet tannin, incredible purity and finesse, and a killer finish. It's the finest wine from this estate in close to 30 years. Hats off to Caroline Frey and Jacques Desvernois! Maturity: 2026 - 2066."

Domaine Pierre Usseglio & Fils "Cuvee de Mon Aieul" Chateauneuf du Pape 2016

97 Wine Advocate
100 Jeb Dunnuck
(8/28/2018) "Getting more than one exclamation in the notes, the 2016 Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul is a deep, rich yet vibrant red that offers a kaleidoscope of kirsch liqueur, garrigue, crushed flowers, Asian spices, and cured meats. It's more opulent and sexier than the 2010, fresher and purer than the 2007, has deep, full-bodied aromas and flavors, and a huge finish. It's a sensational, heavenly Chateauneuf-du-Pape that tops out my scale. This cuvee is 100% Grenache that was not destemmed and was aged in 20% demi-muids and the balance in concrete tanks. Drinking window 2021 -2041."

Domaine Vincent Paris "La Geynale" Cornas 2013

93 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
91+ Wine Advocate
(11/18/2015) "As normal, the 2013 Cornas la Geynale is the most structured, tannic and age-worthy in the lineup. Coming from the Geynale and Reynard lieux-dits, and fermented with 100% whole clusters, it spent 18 months all in two- to eight-year-old barrels. Its inky purple, mostly opaque color gives way to masculine (classic Cornas!) notes of crushed rocks, charcoal, wood smoke and plums. Big, medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and with plenty of tannin, it needs 2-4 years of cellaring and will drink well for a decade after that."

Chateau Saint Cosme "Le Claux" Gigondas 2016

99-100 Jeb Dunnuck
(10/19/2017) "The 2016 Gigondas Le Claux has slightly more mid-palate depth compared to the Hominis Fides, yet is also more tannic and structure. Damp clay, forest floor, currants spice and huge minerality all soar from the glass and this full-bodied beauty has an unctuous texture that's currently hiding serious amounts of tannin. Forget bottles for 4-5 years and enjoy over the following 15+."

Domaine Grand Veneur "Vieilles Vignes" Chateauneuf du Pape 2016

97 Wine Advocate
100 Jeb Dunnuck
(8/28/2018) "The 2016 Chateauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes is up with the creme de la creme of the vintage and in the same league as the perfect 2010. Awesome notes of blackberries, creme de cassis, charred meats, licorice, and violets all soar from the glass. It's powerful, opulent, and structured, with building tannin, a huge mid-palate, and a blockbuster finish, yet it never loses its sense of purity and elegance. It's an incredible achievement from this estate. The blend is 45% Grenache, 45% Mourvedre, and 10% Syrah, all aged in 55% new French oak."

Domaine Auguste Clape "Renaissance" Cornas 2015

94 Wine Spectator
94 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
96 Jeb Dunnuck
(1/2018) "The 2015 Cornas Renaissance is sensational, and in the same league as the 2010, although it's made in much more forward, sexy and seamless style. While from the younger vines of the estate, we're still talking about 40- to 50-year-old vines, primarily in the Les Sabarotte and Geynale lieux-dits, made in the exact same way as the grand vin. Offering full-bodied richness, moderate acidity, and incredibly polished tannin, it's as drinkable as it gets, yet has plenty of muscle and fat. Huge notes of black cherries, blueberries, scorched earth, pepper, and game literally soar from the glass of this opaque purple/ruby colored gem that can be enjoyed anytime over the coming 20 years or more."

Chateau Pesquie "Cuvee Ascensio" Ventoux Rouge 2015

95+ Jeb Dunnuck
(10/19/2017) "Another new cuvee from this family estate is the 2015 Ventoux Cuvee Ascensio which is mostly Grenache brought up in concrete tanks. This inky colored beauty is a tour de force from the Ventoux and offers smoking good notes of blackberries, currants, smoked earth, lavender, and pepper. Deep, full-bodied and opulent, give bottles 2-4 years of cellaring and enjoy through 2028."

Matthieu Barret "Billes Noires" Cornas 2012

96 Wine Advocate
(12/29/2014) "Coming from the upper part of Cornas and seeing 24 months in 400-500 Liter barrels (none new), the 2012 Cornas Domaine du Coulet Billes Noires is an incredible effort that's up with the crème de la crème of the vintage. Its inky purple color is followed by an awesome bouquet of cassis, bacon fat, olive, peppered meat and iron, with additional minerality coming through with air. Classic in every way, with full-bodied richness, stunning purity and integrated acidity, it's a big, brooding and concentrated effort that's reasonably approachable now due to its fruit and texture, yet won't hit prime time until 6-7 years after the vintage and will have two decades of longevity."
