Vieux Télégraphe Chateauneuf du Pape White 2015
Ripe and rich, but focused, with verbena, bitter almond and wet stone notes threading through the core of creamed yellow apple, pear and melon flavors. Very long, with a gorgeous salted butter echo. 95pts J. Molesworth Wine Spectator Sept 2017
Challans free range duck breast, Jerusalem artichoke, Bianchetto spring truffle, jus (MK, MST)
Domaine Les Pallieres Les Racines Gigondas 2013
Deeper and richer that the Terrasse du Diable. Has impressive minerality in its dark fruits, pepper and garrigue aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, ripe and nicely concentrated, it’s a smoking 2013 that will drink well for a decade. 89-92 pts. Jeb Dunnock Wine Advocate Oct 2014
Vignobles Brunier, Chateauneuf-du-Pape Piedlong Rouge 2013
The 2013 Piedlong is a spectacular showing from the Brunier Family. It instantly opens with gorgeous aromas of dark cherries and black plums, layered with exotic spices, lavender and fresh minerals. This continues to impress on the palate with its wonderful richness and depth, backed by beautifully concentrated flavors of dark fruits, spices and lavender, which carry on well into the finish. Overall, this is a stunning wine which is already extremely appealing, and also shows the potential to evolve for years to come. Composed of 90% Grenache from the Piedlong plateau with the addition of 10% Mourvèdre from the district of Pignan 93 pts. Joe d’Angelo International Wine Report Nov 2015
Chateaubriand & Slow cooked beef, onion, wild garlic, Allium flowers (MST, MK, SDS, CL)
Vignobles Brunier Télégramme Chateauneuf du Pape 2015
One of the finest and most elegant and classy examples of the cuvée I can remember, the 2015 Télégramme Châteauneuf du Pape is more a mini Vieux Télégraphe at this point than the more fruit-forward Télégramme examples of the past. Framboise, currants, dried earth and garrigue all emerge from this medium-bodied, elegant and finesse-driven wine that’s ideal for drinking while you wait on the top cuvée. 89+pts. Jeb Dunnock Wine Advocate Nov 2016
Vieux Télégraphe La Crau Chateauneuf du Pape 2015
A wine with playful, attractive character. An array of red, blue and purple fruits. Gently spicy, chalky and fragrant, it has a very supple, fleshy and layered palate with a web of fine, smooth and supple tannins. Extremely elegant and composed. A long draw on the finish. Great depth and drive. This will live super long. 96 pts James Suckling Aug 2017
