  • Domaine Les Aphillanthes Cotes-du-Rhone Villages Rasteau '1921' 2016
    $29.00
    Red wine. Southern Rhône, France. 92% Grenache, 7% Mourvèdre, 1% Carignan. Biodynamic. "I suspect the 2016 Rasteau Cuvee 1921 is the finest wine to date from this estate; it’s unquestionably one of the finest Rasteau I’ve tasted. Flat-out stunning notes of spring flowers, orange blossom, violets, and blueberries all emerge from this full-bodied effort that has ample power and richness, yet beautiful elegance and purity at the same time. It’s going to benefit from a year or two of cellaring and keep for a decade." — 95 Points, Jeb Dunnuck (May 2019)

  • Domaine Les Aphillanthes Cotes-du-Rhone Villages Plan de Dieu Vieilles Vignes 2016
    $25.00
    Red wine. Southern Rhône, France. 80% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre. Biodynamic. "An 80/20 blend of Grenache and Mourvèdre from vines over 60 years of age, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone Villages Plan de Dieu Vieilles Vignes is so promising from tank. It's dark fruited, tight and reserved on the nose but explodes on the palate with power, combining high alcohol, high extract and ample acidity. It should be exciting when it's released and drink well for 5-7 years." — 91-93 Points, Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate (Nov. 2017)

  • Domaine Saint-Damien Gigondas 'La Louisiane' 2017
    $37.00
    Red wine. Southern Rhône, France. Organic. 80% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre, 5% balance of Cinsault and Syrah. "Deeply colored, the 2016 Gigondas La Louisiane comes from single vineyard on the lower plain, not far from the estate, and is 80% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre, and the balance Syrah and Cinsault. It offers a classic bouquet of dark berry fruits, peppery herbs, garrigue, and obvious minerality. Reminding me of the 2010 with its pure, straight style, it’s full-bodied and elegant on the palate, and is going to benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age." — 96 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com (Sept. 2018)

  • Patrick & Christophe Bonnefond Vin de Pays Viognier 2016
    $25.00
    White wine. Northern Rhône, France. Sustainable. 100% Viognier. "Pale gold. Aromas of ripe citrus and pit fruits and jasmine are complicated by hints of honey and ginger. Juicy and seamless on the palate, offering peach nectar and tangerine flavors that show very good clarity and spicy cut. The peachy note carries through the incisive finish, which hangs on with very good tenacity." — 90 Points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous (May 2018)

    $19.00
    Red wine. Southern Rhône, France. Organic. 50% Grenache, 35% Mourvèdre, 15% Syrah. Organic. "I loved the 2016 Cairanne Maximilien and it offers terrific notes of plums, scorched earth, pepper and distinct minerality in a full-bodied, opulent, unctuous package. Made from 50% Grenache, 35% Mourvèdre and 15% Syrah, drink this smoking good red over the coming 6-7 years." —91-94 Points, Jeb Dunnuck (October 2017)

  • Domaine de Ferrand Cotes-du-Rhone La Ferrande Syrah 2016
    $23.00
    Red wine. Southern Rhône, France. Organic. 100% Syrah. "A Côtes du Rhône that needs to be tasted to be believed, the 2016 Domaine de Ferrand Côtes-du-Rhône La Ferrand comes from older Syrah vines around the estate (just to the north of Châteauneuf du Pape) and was brought up in barrel (I think this is the only wine from the estate to see oak). Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a vivid bouquet of blueberries, ground pepper, violets, and floral notes. I’d probably guess Cote Rotie in a blind tasting and it’s medium to full-bodied, has a layered, elegant texture, beautiful tannins, and a great finish." — 93 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, (May 2019)
