    Beautiful fragrance and elegance on this stunning southern white. There’s texture and restraint here, and a finish that just makes you want to have another glass.

  • 2017 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Côtes du Rhône “Lieu-Dit Clavin”

    “Moving to the 2017, and more structured and tannic, the 2017 Côtes Du Rhône Lieu-Dit Clavin reveals a deep purple color as well as classic notes of black licorice, blackcurrants, ground pepper, and earth. Medium to full-bodied, with plenty of tannins yet beautiful fruit, it needs 2-4 years of bottle age, but it’s beautiful stuff and I’d wager one of the best Côtes Du Rhône out there. Drink 2021-2031.” 92 points, Jeb Dunnuck

  • 2018 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Chateauneuf-du-Pape “Les Trois Sources”

    “True to form, the 2018 Chateauneuf Du Pape Les Trois Sources is a softer, more elegant wine than the Les Hauts-Lieux and offers a gorgeous perfume of black cherries, black licorice, tapenade, violets, herbes de Provence, and jus de viande. Deep, full-bodied, and beautifully layered, it gains weight with time in the glass and is going to benefit from just short-term cellaring. It doesn’t have the concentration for any long-term cellaring yet my money is on it evolving nicely for a solid 10-12 years. Maturity: 2020 – 2032.” 95 points, Jeb Dunnuck

  • 2017 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Chateauneuf-du-Pape “Les Trois Sources”

    “Leading off the three Châteauneuf Du Papes, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Trois Sources comes from more sandy soils just across the road from the estate. It always shares more stylistic similarities with the Réserve and is more opulent, sexy, and fruit loaded compared to the Hauts-Lieux cuvée. This 2017 is spectacular, offering loads of black fruits, black licorice, ground herbs, violets, and some obvious loamy soil and mineral-like aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, expansive, and multi-dimensional, this is another singular wine from Jean-Paul Daumen that tastes like the essence of this stunning terroir.” 97 points, Jeb Dunnuck

  • 2010 Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Chateauneuf-du-Pape “Les Trois Sources”

    “The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Trois Sources comes from the estate’s vineyards planted in sandy soils. About 10,000 bottles have been produced. One of the great wines of the vintage, this unbelievable Chateauneuf is still extremely young and primary. Its opaque purple color is followed by scents of ink, acacia flowers, blueberries, black raspberries and blackberries. While full-bodied, extremely concentrated and massive, the wine is totally harmonious with beautifully integrated acidity, tannin and alcohol (which is no doubt in excess of 16%). Give this 2010 five more years of cellaring and drink it over the following 20-25 years.” 96 points, Wine Advocate

  • 2016 Domaine Les Aphillanthes Gigondas “Promesse”

    “The 2016 Gigondas Promesse checks in as a blend of 90% Grenache, 6% Mourvèdre and the balance Cinsault, brought up all in concrete. Notes of blue fruits, lavender, and forest floor all flow to a ripe, already complex, concentrated Gigondas that should drink nicely in its youth, yet evolve gracefully.”  90-92 Points, Jeb Dunnuck

  • 2015 Domaine Les Aphillanthes Gigondas “Promesse”

    “Hints of crushed stone and dark, plummy fruits mark the nose of the 2015 Gigondas Promesse. Only the second vintage of the wine to be produced by the domaine, it shows admirable structure and poise, fine tannins and a lingering finish. It’s a blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Mourvèdre, aged partly in demi-muids and partly in concrete.”  90 Points, Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate

  • 2019 Domaine Les Aphillanthes Vin de Pays de Vaucluse

    Red wine. Southern Rhône, France. 45% Syrah, 35% Merlot, 20% Grenache. Biodynamic. Cherry and redcurrant aromas are complemented by a suggestion of musky herbs. Light-bodied and precise, with good clarity and bite to its red berry and bitter cherry flavors. Finishes with good focus and a slightly jammy quality, the cherry note repeating. This would make a fantastic everyday red or a by-the-glass bistro wine.

  • 2017 Domaine Les Aphillanthes Cotes-du-Rhone “Trois Cepages”

    Red wine. Southern Rhône, France. 33% Grenache, 33% Mourvèdre, 33% Syrah. Biodynamic. A beautiful Côtes-du-Rhône Villages with lots of red fruit, earth, and spice. A big and aromatic bouquet—look for plum, pepper, and baking spices. Rich and savory on the palate, with a supple attack and a lengthy finish with rustic tannins.

  • 2017 Domaine de la Charbonniere Chateauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes

    “A blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Mourvèdre from the lieux-dits of La Crau (sud) and Cristia, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Vieilles Vignes is huge in the mouth, full-bodied and expansive, with a rich, velvety texture and tremendous length. Notes of raspberries, black cherries, dark chocolate, cola and licorice are compacted into this dense ball of richness, which somehow avoids feeling heavy or warm, framed by a webbing of fine-grained tannins and surprising acidity. I don’t know if it will age well past about a decade or so, but it’s pretty darn delicious now.” 97 points, Wine Advocate
