     Clos du Caillou
A top CNDP estate, making excellent wines, with depth and finesse.
     
36 75cl Cotes du Rhone
'La Reserve'
Clos du Caillou

RP/Joe Czerwinski -
The pick of the Côte du Rhône lineup is the 2015 Cotes du Rhone La Reserve. A blend of 65% Grenache and 35% Mourvèdre aged in demi-muids, it shows hints of vanilla and baking spices to go along with red plums and black cherries. It's supple on the mid-palate and velvety on the finish, showing ample richness and length.
2015 £29.00 RP/JC91
2017-27

Great Value - Highly Recommended

           
     Chateau Pesquie
RP - Easily one of my favourite estates from the up-and-coming Ventoux region, Chateau Pesquie is run by the talented brothers, Alexandre & Frederic Chaudiere. The wines sell for a song, yet always deliver high-quality, loads of character and impeccably made profiles.
     
7 75cl Cuvee Artemia Rouge
Cotes du Ventoux
Chateau Pesquie

RP/Jeb Dunnuck -
Shockingly good, the 2009 Cotes du Ventoux Cuvee Artemia is in the top handful of wines I've tasted from this appellation. Just insanely perfumed, with tons of incense, Provencal herbs, garrigue, smoked meats and violets, this full-bodied beauty has a stacked mid-palate, building, sweet tannin and a killer finish. Hello beautiful, why didn't I buy more of you.
2009 £34.00 RP96

    CHATEAU PUECH-HAUT
A Bio-Dynamically farmed estate, making really wonderful wines; which represent Top Value for the price!

RP - Easily one of the top estates in the Languedoc (if not southern France), Chateau Puech Haut lies just outside the village of Saint-Drezery and is owned and run by Gerard Bru, with consulting help from Philippe Cambie. They produce a number of cuvees, with their entry level efforts representing superb values, and their top cuvees being able to stand toe to toe with the greatest wines in the world.

   
Wonderful value wines - please try a bottle!

75cl Coteaux de Languedoc
Saint Drezery
 Prestige Rouge
Chateau Puech-Haut

JebDunnuck.com - The 2016 Prestige is made from 55% Grenache and 45% Syrah that’s from 65- to 80-year-old vines aged all in concrete tanks. It's a huge, opulent, sexpot of a wine that offers crazy good notes of black licorice, roasted herbs, peppered meats, and ripe, black and hints of blue fruits. While this is no doubt a big, rich wine, it has remarkable elegance and purity, and is the finest vintage I’ve tasted to date. Drink it over the coming 4-5 years. This cuvée was first made in 2009 by owner Gerard Bru, consultant Philippe Cambie, and Eric Solomon, and it has knocked it out of the park in every vintage to date.

2016 £16.00 JD94

    DOMAINE 
MONTIRIUS

This is a Top Domaine making
organic Gigondas wines - Highly Recommended.
     
23 75cl Gigondas
'Confidentiel'
Domaine Montirius

RP/Jeb Dunnuck -
The 2015 Gigondas Confidentiel is the smallest production cuvee and is 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre brought up all in concrete. It has beautiful purity in its ripe plum and blackberry fruits, violets and mint aromatics. These give way to a medium to full-bodied, rounded and beautifully textured Gigondas that will benefit from a year or two in bottle and keep for a decade.
2015 £39.00 RP/JD92

    DOMAINE 
SANTA DUC

RP - One of the reference points of Gigondas as well as one of the model winemaking estates in the southern Rhone
     
15 75cl Gigondas
'Tradition'
Santa Duc

RP -
The 2009 Gigondas Tradition, a blend of 75% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre and the rest Syrah and Cinsault, tips the scales at about 16% alcohol, so there’s nothing wimpy about this wine. Loads of blueberry, smoky blackberry, kirsch, licorice and hints of toast and earth all make an appearance in this voluptuously styled, evolved wine, which is already drinking beautifully. This wine has low acidity and velvety tannins, so there’s no need to wait to enjoy this gorgeous red, which is drinking well now and should continue to do so for at least another 10-12 years.
