Chateauneuf du Pape, 2012

Chateau Mont Redon

Also tasted out of barrel, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Mont Redon is a blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 8% Mourvedre and a splash of Cinsault. Spending 12 months in equal parts stainless steel and barrels, it offers up a modern profile with plenty of cassis, licorice and hints of vanilla all emerging from the glass. Nicely concentrated, with sweet tannin and solid length on the finish, it has outstanding potential and should have around a decade of longevity.

Presenting a solid lineup of wines, this large estate is located in the northwestern portion of Chateauneuf du Pape and covers over 250 acres.

Delas, 2008

St Joseph Francois de Tournon

The 2008 has a bountiful dark red robe, magenta and black together. The bouquet exudes black berry fruitl. The palate has a good strike of black berry fruit with a lacing of tannin that is ripe; the length is good, and there is richness all through it. A good amount of drinkable bounty here – it is a wine of plenty of depth and well-knit elements. This is clearly a very good vintage. Has a long, clear finish.

Chateauneuf du Pape, 2005

Chateau Fortia

From the outstanding 2005 vintage and scoring 91/100 Parker Points, "I loved Fortia’s 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Baron. Made from 45% Grenache, 45% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre, aged all in concrete tank, it’s loaded with Provencal character and exhibits lots of sweet black cherries, currants, licorice and hints of olive and mint on the nose. Medium-bodied, elegant and supple, with outstanding balance and length, it’s drinking at point now, yet should hold nicely for another 3-5 years." Drink now - 2020.

Hermitage, 2002

Delas Domaine des Tourettes

The most famous of all the northern Rhône appellations, its 120 hectares produce tiny quantities of very long-lived reds. The vines were grown in Roman times, although local folklore claims their origins to be 600 years earlier. The wines are powerful, with a deep colour and firm tannins, and the potential to age for many decades.

1999 Hermitage La Chapelle, 1999

P Jaboulet Ainee (includes leather effect gift box with silk liner- *Not the one illustrated)

This garnet 1999 La Chapelle gives off candied red berry and chocolate grilled aromas, enhanced by an evolving hint of truffle and fur. Its airy and concentrated palate develops red and dark berries, grilled hazelnut, spices, chocolate and Virginia tobacco notes. The 1999 Hermitage La Chapelle possesses a perfect acidity that brings a lingering finish with very delicate tannins. This is a superb vintage for a great Hermitage.

Legendary hill and history built up the mythical reputation of this Grand Cru. 1999 Hermitage La Chapelle is a Syrah single-grape wine of Paul Jaboulet-Aîné. This varietal is planted on poor and varied soils with a great diversity of the terroir, which is the origin of the complexity of this wine.

Chateauneuf du Pape, 1998

New

Domaine Mont Redon

An outstanding wine still with a deep red colour. This hasreally strong bouquet with lovely packing in it; there is charm in the soft red fruits, but power and depth in behind, via some tobacco and rum: all comes in a silken air. This is rich on the palate, backed by good structure and tannin to keep it in shape. Very good length.

Cotes du Rhone, 1969

Les Chais de Beaulieu

Côtes du Rhône is a huge appellation in the south of France encompassing 40,300 ha. Plenty of white and rosé wine is produced in Côtes du Rhône but there can be no doubt that red is king. Usually Grenache will dominate the blend (except in the north where Syrah is allowed to be top dog, but these wines are relatively few) and is normally partnered with Syrah and/or Mourvèdre but a further 18 varieties are also permitted! A cheerful example might be light, soft, fruity and easy-drinking, while the finest examples may be full-bodied, concentrated, intense, spicy and ageworthy. But what they all invariably have in common is a fabulous sense of place and lashings of personality and character.

Chateauneuf du Pape, 1967

Robert Sarrau

The red wines of Chateauneuf-du-Pape blossom and reach their prime between their third and fifth year, but their potential for aging is over ten years and more according to the vintage and storage conditions. Their color changes from intense garnet-purple in the early years to ruby after some cellaring. These wines are structured, with powerful and complex aromas of ripe fruit, mushrooms, truffles, underbrush, spicy notes, and wild animals.

Chateauneuf du Pape, 2006

Domaine de Barroche

Domaine la Barroche has been in the Barrot family since the 16th century, in fact even before that when the Popes came from Avignon and decided to spend their summer vacation in Châteauneuf. Fast forward several centuries and Julien the youngest member of the Barrot has joined his father to help produce some stunning and exciting wines that are receiving world-wide recognition.


Robert Parker
The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Signature is the lightest of the four 2006 cuvees. It exhibits a dark ruby color, rich black cherry and black currant fruit, loads of fruit in the mid-palate, a medium-bodied, elegant mouthfeel, and light tannins.

Chateauneuf du Pape, 2004

Domaine Vieux Telegraphe

***93 Points- Robert Parker***
Classic and aging gracefully, the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieux Telegraphe is a medium to full-bodied, rich and mouth-filling effort, especially in the vintage. Kirsch, blackberry, garrigue, nori (seaweed/sushi wrapper which I seem to always find in this wine) and ample crushed-rock notes all round out the bouquet and on the palate, it’s nicely concentrated, with fine tannin and integrated acidity.
