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.

Vacqueyras, 2007

Caves Saint- Pierre, Preference

Medium to dark crimson in colour. Some almost overripe notes of raw damson juice and a hint of spice. Still vibrant and packed with bilberries and cracked black pepper. A mouthful of vinous joy, accessible now.

Chateauneuf du Pape, 2006

Domaine Font de Michelle, Etienne Gonnet

A profound, smokey, leathery nose with an intriguing aromatic note like sandalwood. Beautiful palate with a gorgeous, silky texture, and a very sweet impression. Intense, wonderfully scented Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Producer Guilllaume Gonnet produces this Châteauneuf-du-Pape from equal quantities of Grenache and Syrah, the vines farmed biodynamically and on average, between 50 and 90 years old. That age of vine leads to an especially intense, pure Châteauneuf-du-Pape, with tonnes of dark fruit aroma, touches of mixed herbs and liquorice. As expected for wines of this area, the alcohol is up around 14.5% but this is still a remarkably versatile food wine.

Chateauneuf du Pape, 2005

Chateau de la Font du Loup

The 2005 Chateau de la Font du Loup opened up delightfully on the 2nd night with loads of liquorice, tobacco and leather around a sweet fruit core. Tannins had melted away and left a deliciously full bodied wine that gives me hope for some good ageing potential.

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.

Chateau de Beaucastel Pierre Perrin

**** 96/100 Robert Parker ****
*** 17/20 Jancis Robinson ***
*** 96/100 - The Rhone Report ***

Château de Beaucastel has long been considered one of the great wines of France. It is unanimously renowned for its balance, elegance and ageing potential. Beaucastel has an extraordinary terroir at the Northern end of the appellation with heavy exposure to the Mistral. All 13 varieties of the appellation have been organically grown here since the sixties.

*** 96/100 - The Rhone Report ***
"Still incredibly youthful and a touch reserved (especially when compared to the ?00), the 2001 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape still needs another 5 years to truly shine.

Hermitage, 2000

Tardeiu-Laurent

There are 250 cases of the 2000 Hermitage, a more elegant, finesse-styled effort compared to the blockbuster 1999 and 1998. The wine is concentrated for the vintage, offering a deep purple color followed by notions of licorice and creme de cassis, sweet tannin, low acidity, and a forward, plump, concentrated style. This well-balanced Hermitage will be drinkable at a younger age than the compelling 1999. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2016.

Saint Joseph, 1999

New

Anais, Domaine du Chene

This is a wine created by Marc Ruviere, an excellent producer of Chavané. Saint Joseph's red wine is made from Syrah. The grapes were harvested in 1999 and the wine displays an impressive flavor with black cherries and dark berry aromas. Vanilla melts in and there is a mature incense of soil and leather. You can enjoy pleasant and smooth texture and graceful astringency.

Chateauneuf du Pape, 1995

La Bernadine, Michel Chapoutier

The La Bernadine is a very good CNDP from the excellent 1995 vintage. The wine still has a deep core. On the nose there is lots of jammy fruit particularly strawberry jam and forest floor. It tastes like strawberry jam, forest floor, coffee and chocolate. The body is medium/full. The wine has round texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has low acidity. Drink now.

Chateauneuf du Pape, 1994

La Crau Domaine Vieux Telegraph Brunier

*** 92 Points - Average Cellar Tracker Score ***

"This is well into its drinking window and had plenty to give. Decanted for 2 hours, it held up well in the glass and had a nose of dried herbs and pepper with a lovely hint of brett, and sweet fruit with a tangy, peppery note on the palate, and a hint of tannin on the finish. Not improving but should be enjoyable for a few more years." Cellar Tracker

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe has been run by our family, the Brunier family, for six generations since 1891 and is now one of the most renowned estates of the Southern Rhône. The estate’s vineyards are large as there are about 45 hectares of red grapevines planted, 60 years old is the average age.

Chateauneuf du Pape, 1990

Chateau de Beaucastel Pierre Perrin

Château de Beaucastel has long been considered one of the great wines of France. It is unanimously renowned for its balance, elegance and ageing potential. Beaucastel has an extraordinary terroir at the Northern end of the appellation with heavy exposure to the Mistral. All 13 varieties of the appellation have been organically grown here since the sixties.

1990 was a fantastic year for Rhone Wines and the Beaucastel has striking colour. The nose is profound and sweet, with black truffle, under-wood, and earthy notes. The mouth is fruity, fleshy and round, with soft tannins. It can be drunk but will improve with time.

Cotes du Rhone, 1971

Chanut Freres

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.

Pere Anselme

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.
