     Clos du Caillou
A top CNDP estate, making excellent wines, with depth and finesse.
     
7 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.

CORNAS wines - Highly Recommended.
     
12 75cl CORNAS
'Les Eygats'
Domaine Courbis

RP/Jeb Dunnuck -
Even inkier-coloured than the Sabarotte, the 2015 Cornas les Eygats is another single vineyard release that comes from a site located on the northern edge of the appellation. Aged in 50% new French oak (the balance is in once-used barrels), it offers sensational notes of plums, blueberries, crushed violets, pen ink and barbecue smoke in an utterly profound, decadent, layered, heavenly profile. There's ample tannin here, but they're sweet and polished, and it has an awesome finish. Don't miss it!

18 75cl CORNAS
Domaine Du Tunnel

RP/Joe Czerwinski-
I tasted from several barrels destined for the 2018 Cornas. While they showed a spectrum of fruit flavours ranging from red currant to cassis, they all revealed ample concentration and depth framed by ripe, silky tannins.

    DOMAINE  DU GRAND MONTMIRAIL
An excellent Domaine making
lovely Gigondas wines - Highly Recommended.
     
12 75cl GIGONDAS
'Le Couteau de Mon Reve'
Domaine Du Grand Montmirail

RP/Joe Czerwinski-
With the 2017 Gigondas le Coteau de Mon Reve, Yves Cheron has taken his flagship property to another level. A blend of 75% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre, it's full-bodied and rich yet remains exceptionally fine and elegant. Mouth-watering raspberries and blood orange notes are joined by star anise on the long, silky finish. Drink it anytime over the next decade.

MONTIRIUS

organic GIGONDAS wines - Highly Recommended.
     
20 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.

75cl PIC SAINT-LOUP
'Clos du Pic'
Coteaux du Languedoc

Chateau Puech-Haut

RP/Joe Czerwinski - My favourite of the various parcel selections from this outstanding estate was the 2016 Pic Saint Loup Clos du Pic, a Syrah-Mourvèdre blend. It reveals classy aromas of baking spices, crushed stone and violets, backing those up with flavours of raspberries, strawberries and plums. It's full-bodied but complex, with a long finish framed by fine-grained tannins.

75cl COTEAUX du LANGUEDOC
'Bosc Negre'
Chateau Puech-Haut

Jeb Dunnuck/Jeb Dunnuck.com
- The 2016 Bosc Negre is the Mourvèdre dominated cuvée of the estate (there’s 10% tank-aged Grenache), destemmed and brought up in new barrels. It’s another rich, powerful wine from this estate that stays beautifully balanced. Classic notes of kirsch, blackberries, ground pepper, bouquet garni, and smoked earth all flow to full-bodied 2016 that has terrific purity, building tannins, and a layered, multi-dimensional texture that ranks with the best wines out there.

75cl COTEAUX du LANGUEDOC
'Cante Lebre'
Chateau Puech-Haut

Jeb Dunnuck/Jeb Dunnuck.com
- Another heavenly barrel sample is the 2016 Cante Lebre, which is a huge, incredibly rich wine based on 40% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 20% Mourvèdre. The Grenache is brought up all in concrete tanks and the Syrah and Mourvèdre are aged in new French oak. Black raspberries, currants, smoked herbs, melted licorice, and violets notes all flow to a rich, opulent, incredibly sexy wine that’s going to flirt with perfection on release.

75cl COTEAUX du LANGUEDOC
'Quercus'
Chateau Puech-Haut

Jeb Dunnuck/Jeb Dunnuck.com
- Possibly the gem of the lineup, from a lineup packed with incredible wines, the 2016 Quercus is a blend of 100% Grenache that spent 16 months in concrete tanks. Full-bodied, insanely pure, rich, yet incredibly elegant and ethereal, it offers layers of ripe red and black fruits, violets, white chocolate, and graphite. I suspect it may be the finest Grenache – ever – from the Languedoc.

75cl PIC SAINT-LOUP
'Les Glorieuses'
Coteaux du Languedoc
 Clos Marie

RP/David Schildknecht - Representing co-fermented, 100% vendange entier Syrah-Grenache, and tasted from the 1,300-liter Stockinger round and 1,500 litre oval foudres in which its totality matures, the Clos Marie 2010 Coteaux du Languedoc Pic Saint-Loup Les Glorieuses delivers a floral profusion (rose, wisteria, iris); saliva gland-liberating salinity; deeply rich red meatiness; and detonative, reverberative interaction of concentrated dark berries with peat and stone that left me practically dizzy. Nut oils, herbal essences, iodine, and iron filings add to the dazzling complexity on exhibit in this finely-textured example of the dynamic equilibrium of richness and vivacity, density and refinement that is singularly possible in 2010. Look for the better part of two decade’s attentive enjoyment and wonder.

2010 £60.00
