Alain Jaume Ventoux Les Gélinottes

2019 / 750 ml.

Item #: 56719

JD89+89–91 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 10/6/2020
From an appellation on the uptick, the 2019 Ventoux Les Gelinottes is another high-quality wine from this estate. Bright, medium-bodied aromas and flavors of black cherries and peppery, sappy herbs all emerge from this nicely textured, fresh, focused 2019 that has good concentration. The Ventoux is a cooler region, and this shows the wines more lively, fresh aromatics and focused texture. It will evolve for 5–7 years. (Jeb Dunnuck)

The Maraschino cherry and garrigue-scented 2019 Ventoux Les Gelinottes is a juicy, mouthwatering effort. It’s medium-bodied, silky and fresh, with hints of pine resin and tree bark on the largely savory finish. Drink it over the next few years.

JD95+95–97 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 12/14/2020
Also pure Southern Rhône goodness, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes has classy notes of red and blue fruits, candied orange, flowers, peppery garrigue, and loads of Asian spices. Beautifully textured, silky, and elegant on the palate, it has wonderful tannins, a notable sense of freshness, and a great, great finish. (Jeb Dunnuck)
SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 28, 2022
Ripe and expressive, with a lovely display of warmed plum, raspberry and blackberry puree flavors infused with red tea and anise notes. Features a solid mineral note that chimes on the finish, while a roasted apple wood frame keeps it all in line as the fruit takes an encore. Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah. Best from 2023 through 2036. 650 cases made, 200 cases imported. (James Molesworth)

Domaine Vincent Paris Cornas Granit 30

2021 / 750 ml.

Item #: 53731

JS9696 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, May 22, 2023
The moment you move the glass close to your nose the extraordinary perfume of this great Cornas is overwhelming. Deep, meaty and smoky, yet brimming with blue fruits and violets, how can you resist? What grace and elegance this has on the pristine and light-footed palate. Really concentrated, but only medium-bodied (13% alcohol) this is a masterpiece of filigree at the breathtakingly fresh and precise finish. Drink or hold. (Stuart Pigott)

The 2020 IGP Collines Rhodaniennes Domaine Des Gardes Syrah is a juicy, peppery, violet-scented Syrah that’s medium-bodied, has a supple, light, elegant mouthfeel, and soft tannins. Drink this charming, forward, enjoyable Syrah over the coming 4–5 years. (Jeb Dunnuck)

A fragrant and intense nose of dark cherries, plums, dried lavender, spice and cigar box. A full-bodied Chateauneuf with solid, fine-grained tannins that build on the palate with a grip at the end. Focused and flavorful with real harmony. Drink or hold. (Zekun Shuai)
JD9090 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/3/2021
Blackberries, ripe cherries, graphite, and peppery herbs all emerge from the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Caparaçon, a medium-bodied, nicely balanced, classical Châteauneuf to drink over the coming 8–10 years. (Jeb Dunnuck)
