2019 Yann Chave, Hermitage 3x150cl

VM94-96
"A complex bouquet evokes ripe blackberry, cherry compote, licorice and violet, energized by a spicy cracked pepper nuance. Broad and fleshy in the mouth, offering densely packed, smoke-tinged... black/blue fruit, exotic spice and floral pastille flavors that pick up a minerally nuance as the wine opens up. Shows superb delineation and spicy lift on a long, silky finish framed by steadily building tannins. There were five demi-rnuids of this wine in 2019, all of them new." 94-96, Josh Raynolds, www.vinous.com

2020 le Clos du Caillou, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, La Reserve 6x75cl

JR98-100
"Huge intensity of burgundian red-berry fruit. Explodes on the palate. Layers of fruit with oh-so-fine tannins and amazing freshness and length on the finish. Real persistence aromatically. Powerful but elegant and restrained. Huge potential for ageing." 17.5 pts., James Lawther MW, www.jancisrobinson.com

2020 Domaine du Tunnel, Saint-Joseph 6x75cl

An enticing expression of this more 'rustic' of appellations, still starting with a beautifully refined nose of black pepper, spice, bay leaf and mineral notes. On the palate, invigorating streaks of... creamy minerality; juicy black bitter/sweet olive fruit and liquorice that is clean, grippy and lingering. It promises supreme drinking pleasure in 5-7 years' time.

2020 Domaine du Tunnel, Cornas, Vin Noir 6x75cl

Another example of the new and refined direction in which Tunnel take Cornas. No longer the rusticity that had been typically associated with the appellation; rather, an enticingly elegant, polished... nose of black cherry and liquorice; an ultra silkiness on the palate, grippy, dense, dark black fruit and flavours of olive tapenade and corresponding sweet spice. Fresh, clean, powerful length. From 80-100-year-old vines.

JR17+
"90% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre. Aged 18 months in foudres. Organic. Cask sample. Reticent nose with just the semblance of dark and red fruit. Palate rich and intense, the fruit concentrated, the tannins powerful and long. Freshness on the finish. Clearly built for ageing." 17+ pts., www.jancisrobinson.com

2019 Yann Chave, Crozes-Hermitage, Rouvre 3x150cl

RP93
"Blackberries, plums and a touch of oak appear on the nose of the 2019 Crozes Hermitage le Rouvre. Full-bodied and concentrated, it's richly tannic yet fully ripe, with layers of rich, velvety tannins unfolding through the long, licorice-tinged finish." 93 pts., Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com

2020 Jasmin, Cote Rotie, Giroflarie 12x75cl

Ampuis-based Jasmin has the advantage of choosing from 12 different plots for blending this exceptional Cote-Rotie (95% syrah, 5% viognier) which he ages for 18 months. His 'Giroflarie' is... considered by many to be the most 'Burgundian' of cuvées in the appellation, drinking quite deliciously in its youth yet also packing the stuff for a good 20 years of graceful ageing.

2020 M. Chapoutier, Crozes-Hermitage, Les Varonniers 6x75cl

DE94
"Graphite, plum and blackberry aromas. Beautifully silky, this has a good sense of fluidity but also remarkable intensity and concentration. Energetic and driven, with deep fruit and sweet tannin,... there's a mineral straightness that helps to temper that ripe fruit and ripe tannin. The alcohol is quite raised but not unbalanced; this is a cut above most Crozes-Hermitages, more serious in style and texture." 94 pts., Matt Walls, www.decanter.com

2022 le Clos du Caillou, Cotes du Rhone, La Reserve Rouge 6x75cl

RP92-94
"There was no 2021 made, but the 2022 Cotes du Rhone La Reserve, tasted as a blend drawn from the seven demi-muids (one new), is a terrific wine. A co-fermented blend of 70% Grenache and 30%... Mourvèdre, it delivers lush black cherries, refreshing, complex garrigue notes and just a hint of cedar. Full-bodied and rich, it's plush and velvety in feel, with a lingering finish." 92-94 pts., Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com

"Delectable swirls of strawberries, cherries and red raspberries mark the nose of the 2022 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Safres, a 90-10 blend of Grenache and Mourvèdre from the sandy soils of the les... Bédines lieu-dit. Full-bodied yet silky, this vintage shows even more persistence of flavor on the finish than usual." 94-96 pts., Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com

2022 le Clos du Caillou, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Les Quartz 6x75cl

RP95-97
"The 2022 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Quartz is a return to the blockbuster style of the 2020, yet it retains a sense of freshness. Hints of menthol and crushed stone on the nose accent black cherries... and blueberries, while the full-bodied palate is plush and expansive without being at all heavy. Lush and long, produced from yields under 20 hectoliters per hectare, it's a stunning blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah." 95-97 pts., Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com

DE95
"Beautifully elegant, perfectly ripe and juicy, with incisive acidity. This has great tannic finesse, serious intensity, concentration and structure but is so fresh. A pure, classic example of... Gigondas. Fast becoming one of the landmark wines of the appellation. A proportion of whole bunch is included. Vineyards around the Clos on the southern edge of the village, 4ha parcel." 95 pts., Matt Walls, decanter.com

2022 Famille Perrin, Gigondas, L’Argnee Vieilles Vignes 6x75cl

DE95JR17
"Soft, velvety, approachable and powerful. Remarkable acidity, with intense, searching tannins and driving salinity. A deeply vinous wine. The oak is present on the nose and palate for now but it... should integrate. It’s long and juicy. The alcohol feels well balanced, and this should age with real interest. 1ha plot of pre-phylloxera vines near the village of Gigondas. All aged in demi-muids, half new, half one-year-old." 95 pts, Matt Walls, decanter.com

2020 le Clos du Caillou, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Les Quartz 6x75cl

JR17
"Deepest colour of the four Clos du Caillou cuvées (plenty of Syrah). The aromatics are again restrained but there’s an attractive pitch of fruit and a spicy note that grows with aeration. Rich... and sweet, the fruit really concentrated on the palate. Tannins firm but very fine and completely interwoven with the fruit. Another for ageing." 17 pts., www.jancisrobinson.com

2020 Domaine du Tunnel, Cornas 6x75cl

Cornas in a most refined and invigorating style. Serious polish and elegance here from an appellation more typically known for its rustic edge. Leafy, sweet & spicy black fruit on the nose with... earthy, mineral tones. On the palate, lovely interplay of sweet black olive and bitter tapenade flavours. Good grip; supremely precise, elegant, long finish. Quite superb. (Mr.Wheeler tasting note)

2020 Paul Jaboulet Aine, Hermitage, La Maison Bleue 6x75cl

DE92VM93-95
“Mostly sourced from les Murets, the 2020 Hermitage La Maison Bleue is a solid effort, with appealing notes of blackberries, raspberries and espresso on the nose. It's full-bodied and rich, yet... streamlined and focused, with savory tones of black olives appearing on the softly dusty finish. It should drink well young, yet age well for more than a decade.” 92-94 pts, Joe Czerwinski, www.robertparker.com, (Drink 2023-2035)

2019 Domaine du Tunnel, Cornas 6x75cl

WS95
"This is really packed, offering dense waves of cassis, plum compote and blackberry reduction flavors that stay well-defined as they rumble through, with ample cast iron, sweet tapenade, lavender and... bay leaf accents. There's loads of grip on the back end, but it's well-integrated, so just let this unwind in the cellar. Best from 2024 through 2038." 95 pts., James Molesworth, winespectator.com

JR18
“Leather and spiced notes, pure with good fresh vivacity on the nose. The palate is ripe and seductive, layered with forest fruits, dark spiced figs. Attractive refreshing acidity, red fruits and a... wild garrigue savoury Mourvèdre note – the tannins are supple and silky – dark forest-fruits finish, which is broad, ample and opulent but always with a finesse of tannins and a savoury liquorice mineral note.” 18 pts., Alistair Cooper MW, jancisrobinson.com
