WA 96 There are 10,000 bottles of the stunning 2016 Châteauneuf du Pape A la Gloire de Mon Grand-Père, which is good news for lovers of 100% Grenache. Drawn from a single parcel in the lieu-dit of Gardiole (mostly sandy soils), half of the fruit was destemmed. It's full-bodied and concentrated but silky and refined, with scintillating purity of cherry and raspberry fruit, backed by crisp acids and enlivening hints of orange zest on the long, reverberating finish. It's a terrific value that should drink well for more than a decade.JC Sep 2018.
VOTED no 1 RHONE RED, NY TIMES Feb 2019. The Wine Cellar Insider 98/100 (Highest Rating Ever from this publication) WA 97. The all whole-bunch 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Chante le Merle Vieilles Vignes is 85% Grenache, with the balance a mix of Mourvèdre and Syrah. The vines are all 80 to 90 years old, selected from parcels in Brusquières, Gardiole, Mont-Redon and Pignan. Glorious raspberry and cherry fruit picks up hints of mint and some stemmy notes, but they're remarkably well-integrated and should be completely absorbed within a couple of years. Full-bodied, rich and creamy in texture, this tour de force remains lively, silky and long on...
WA 93 A terrific example of this bottling, the 2016 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Tradition is a blend of 75% Grenache, 12% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah and tiny amounts of Cinsault, Counoise and Vaccarèse. About 40% was destemmed in this textbook vintage, the fruit coming from 40 different parcels around the appellation. Floral and raspberry notes emerge on the nose, while the palate is full-bodied but silky textured, ending on subtle shadings of Provence herbs and licorice. It's a relative bargain that's easy to drink now, but it should easily go a decade or more in a cool cellar. JC Sep 2018 The best vintages of Bosquets des Papes are: 2018,...
WA 97 The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape la Folie is a special cuvée that has only been made three times: in 2007, 2015 and 2016. As Nicolas Boiron points out, it's a "modern style" of Châteauneuf, completely destemmed and aged in demi-muids and barriques, with a fair proportion of those barrels being new. Mocha cedar notes mark the nose at this early age, while the flavors resemble caramelized cherries and baking spices. Full-bodied, rich, creamy and undeniably plush, it's still recognizable as Châteauneuf-du-Pape, showing velvety hints of chocolate on the long finish. The assemblage is 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre. JC Sep 2018. The best...
WA 91. A stunning success for the vintage, this enticing St.-Julien reveals notes of lead pencil shavings, sweet raspberries and black currants and a subtle touch of oak. Elegant, restrained yet authoritative and impressively intense, it is a medium to full-bodied, lightly tannic effort will be even better with 1-2 years of bottle age and will keep for 15-20 years. RPJ May 2011.
WE 92, JS 90-91, WA 89. Grand Cru Classe, Graves. The Leveque family has hit pay dirt again with this 2012 Graves. An inky, bluish/purple color, and an equal part blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the wine shows terrific fruit, great purity, graphite and underlying earthy burning ember notes. It has medium body and loads of fruit, depth and light tannin in the finish, showing this wine can be drunk early, or cellared for up to a decade. A sleeper of the vintage.Not surprisingly, Hubert de Bouard is their consultant winemaker. RPJ April 2015.
~ Buy Six Bottles and $55 net per Bottle ~ Same owners as Malartic Lagraviere. WA 91 Deep, rich, red and black currant fruit, plum, soy and Asian spice are present in this inky/purple wine, which is medium to full-bodied with supple tannins, outstanding concentration and very impressive aromatics. Drink it over the next 12-20 years.RPJ April 2015.
Buy 6 or more and pay 49sgd per bottle. James Suckling 93 points. This little family owned gem is located on the hillsides of St Emilion. Only 6000 cases are produced from the 8 hectares of vines, which are planted with 75, 50 and 35 year old vines. The wine is a blend of 75% merlot and 25% cabernet franc. Traditionally made to the same meticulous Grand Cru Classe formula for 6 generations. It spends 12 months in French oak, 30% new before being bottled. Dense ruby color with bluish reflect, signs of a beautiful youth. On the nose, fruity notes or even cooked fruits (strawberry, black- berry, morello cherry) mixed with the freshness of...

~Buy Six Bottles and Pay $52 net Each ~ WA 90-92. The 2013 Lanessan has quite a punchy, fruit-driven bouquet with well-integrated oak, a Lanessan with more sense of purpose than I have found in recent vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with fine blackberry and raspberry fruit, fine tannin, leading to a smooth and harmonious finish, which lingers nicely in the mouth. You know, this is the best Lanessan for a long time, perchance because Mon. De Bouard is consulting? NM Apr 2016. Floral nose and good firmness and depth.

WINERY NOTES: In the vineyard... The vines are distributed on several parcels located in bottom of the hillside in Nuits Saint Georges. Gently sloping, on deep brown ground of silt and clays, with strong minerals and of 20 years average of age, they represent more than 2 hectares. In the glass... This wine is raised partially out of barrels of one or two wines. Our Bougogne presents with average color, moderately crimson in its youth, then becoming orange ruby after a few years of aging in bottle. The cherry and blackcurrant flavors are marked in its youth, after which appear animal fur and humus mixed with candied fruits.
WINERY NOTES: In the vineyard... Gently sloping, located in the upper portion of the Clos Vougeot, this parcel of 55 ares shows at the same time qualities of exceptional soil and of the grape variety. The vines are 40 years old. The stony and silty-claey soil consists of colluviums limestones of average depth and rests on a marly base. In the glass... Deep red in color, this wine is harmonious, racy and elegant. A breeding from 70% new barrels develops its exceptional aromatic intensity, with red and black fruit flavors, like cherry, blackberry and blackcurrant. Often austere in its youth, you will find that with age the flavors of damp...
Wine Spectator 93 "Sleek and focused, with black currant, blueberry and black cherry flavors tinged by spice, licorice and savory, saline notes. Finely structured and long on the chalky finish. Best from 2021 through 2036. 150 cases made. 93 Points, Bruce Molesworth, March 2018"
Wine Spectator 93 "Effusive aromas and flavors of rose, cherry, sandalwood, vanilla and toast mark this striking red. Starts out silky, ending with firm, well-integrated tannins and a lingering aftertaste. Best from 2022 through 2036. 150 cases made. 93 Points, Bruce Molesworth, March 2018" WINERY NOTES: In the vineyard... This parcel of 46 acres consists of a kind of terrace on a steep slope, in mid slope (275m). The shallow ground of brown-limestone, consists of gravel, clayey silts, on hard limestone. The forty year old vines are of sufficient age to produce balanced and concentrated grapes. In the glass... Cehe name would come from small...
Wine Spectator 95 In the vineyard... Located in northern Nuits-Saint-Georges, this part of the vineyard is situated on brown limestones and stony grounds, with fine texture of clay and silts on the surface, and more clayey underneath. The presence of marls rich in fossil oysters gives this wine its characteristics. The vineyard is rather shallowly inclined, on 41 acres, and the vines are 30 to 55 years old. In the glass... This Premier Cru is not the most characteristic of the Nuits Saint Georges appellation. As its name indicates, it presents great roundness and smoothness, reminiscent of wines closer to Vosne Romanée. It is characterized...
Wine Spectator 95 In the vineyard... On a shallow slope at an altitude of 250m, this parcel of 42 ares is 55 years old. The soil is rather deep, not very stony, with some clay and silt on the surface and clay in depth. It consists of oligocene and plio-pleistocene material. In the glass... One finds in this Vosne Romanée the peony, the rose, followed by leather and, with age, humus. It is beautiful with a flexible and solid structure which is accompanied by delicate mineral notes. It can easily be cellared for ten years. At the table... An elaborate cuisine, such as a subtle fowl with crystallized prunes, a duck in orange sauce, and fine...
Wine Spectator 92 "Expressive and perfumed, this red offers rose, cherry, strawberry and spice aromas and flavors, allied to an elegant profile. Firms up slightly on the lingering finish. Best from 2021 through 2035. 250 cases made. 92 Points, Bruce Molesworth, March 2018" In the vineyard... Resulting from several parcels representing 1.90 ha, one of these is gently sloped to an altitude of 250 m, in ground of rather deep silt on clay, with vines from 35 to 55 years old. The other part, 25 years old, comes from a parcel on the top of the slope (300 with 325m), which is steeply sloping, on humus-bearing black soil, gravelo-stony, very...
Jancis Robinson 15.5/20. "Very fresh forest-floor notes. Some grainy tannins and some suggestion of very slightly stewed fruit, but certainly not overpriced." Winemaker Notes A pretty, pale-ish purple color with a stylish, fragrant nose of flowers and fruit. There is plenty of primary fruit present, but just a little more serious than you may expect at this price point. It is noticeably more structured on the palate though. The fruit stretches out to a medium length finish.
This is a rich and powerful wine derived from 30 year old vines (1.17 ha). 20% new oak, natural yeasts, minimal filtration.
Tim Atkins 90 points. Jancis Robinson Wine Reviews: Cask sample. Light to mid crimson. Riper and more expressive than the Clos Rousseau. Lifted, fragrant, full of spiced fruit and vitality. Well balanced, easy-going. (JH) Drink 2017-2022 16

WA 93 Seemingly fully mature, Michel and Dany Rolland’s seductive 2000 Bon Pasteur reveals a dark garnet/plum color along with a big, sweet kiss of soy, cedar, roasted herbs, blackberries, caramelized black cherries, and hints of smoke and kirsch. This fleshy, full-bodied Pomerol reveals low acidity, a savory, broad mid-palate, and a decade of life ahead of it. RPJ June 2010.
Aloxe-Corton Premier Cru wines are those made under the strictest conditions of the Aloxe-Corton appellation, from grapes exclusively grown within officially classified Premier Cru vineyard sites. Aloxe-Corton's vineyards were classified in 1982 by the INAO, the French government organization responsible for the country's appellation system. About one-third of the vineyard land within the Aloxe-Corton commune has been granted Premier Cru status, resulting in the creation of 15 climats. Given that more than half of the commune had already been marked as Grand Cru, this is a respectable proportion.
Le Clos du Roi is a climat of the Corton Grand Cru appellation in the Cote de Beaune district of Burgundy. This walled site is located high on the eastern slopes of the Montagne de Corton hill, and is characterized by pebbly, marlstone soils rich in iron oolite. Wines from the Clos du Roi are known for having an excellent balance of power and finesse.
Pommard is for many the most familiar Burgundy appellation. The village itself lies approximately 2 miles south of Beaune, and the total appellation is fairly extensive, covering 300 hectares, flanking a narrow valley which leads back into the Côte d'Or hinterland. The wines of Pommard are quite different from those of the neighbouring villages. They tend to be deeper and more concentrated than Beaune or Volnay wines and have a sumptuous perfume and bite without being too tannic.
Les Chaumes is a large Premier Cru climat located at the southern end of the Vosne-Romanee appellation in the Cote de Nuits. This vineyard, which is lower on the Cote d'Or than many of the appellation's most famous vineyards, is planted entirely to Pinot Noir. Les Chaumes Premier Cru wines are full bodied and supple, but not as refined as their Grand Cru neighbors.
Dark ruby colour, with purple reflections Intense nose of macerated cherries and licorice. In the mouth the wine is full-bodied with a generous attack, a pleasant freshness and elegant tannins. This well-balanced wine shows a typical expression of southern Rhône wine with thyme and rosemary aftertaste.
Winery Notes: The reds are quite dark in colour, their shades varying from deep rubythrough crimson to garnet. While young, the wine’s aroma suggests a spring garden with small red fruits (raspberry, strawberry) and black fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry). These intensify with age and evolve into peony and jasmine, preserved and brandied fruits, pistachio, prune, leather, truffle, mushroom and cinnamon. The deep soil begets a vigorous, full-bodied Pinot Noir, robust yet refined. Tender and fruity, this wine reaches its peak after 3 to 5 years in the cellar, revealing a firm and well-built body, richly chewy and with pleasing tannins.
WA 91 Made from 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, with a saturated ruby/purple color and dense black cherry and plum-like fruit pushing ripeness to the limit, on the palate the wine is medium to full-bodied, pure, ripe and nicely textured, with soft, round tannins. This is a very successful effort from Rol Valentin that can be approached early on or drunk over the following 10-15 years.RPJ April 2015.
WA 96 The 2012 is another truly great wine from Troplong Mondot. It’s always sentimental to taste this wine, realizing that proprietress Christine Valette (the larger-than-life heart and soul behind this estate) has passed away. She was one of the bright, shining stars of Bordeaux. Nevertheless, her legacy is certainly well-established, and the quality of this wine is beyond reproach. Inky bluish purple, its great notes of cassis, blackberry, licorice are followed by a full-bodied, opulently textured wine with stunning concentration, purity and overall balance. It should drink well for 20-25 years and turn out to be one of the great...
