2012 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes, Domaine de la Janasse - 96 PARKER-POINT
"Up in the top handful of wines in the vintage (which should come as no surprise to anyone who follows this estate), the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, rich and layered Châteauneuf that doesn’t put a foot wrong. Made from 85% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre and the rest Syrah, it offers blockbuster notes of blackberry, liquid-violets, spice and serious minerality to go with awesome mid-palate depth and layers of sweet tannin. Like the Cuvee Chaupin, it will be better in another handful of years and thrill through 2027. In case you haven’t been following any of the Wine Advocate reports over the past decade, Domaine de La Janasse, under the leadership of siblings Christophe and Isabelle Sabon, is one of the top two or three estates in the Southern Rhône. In addition to excelling in the top years, this estate also excels in the more difficult vintages. Looking at their 2013s, these were harvested around the October 18th. They have uncommon depth and richness in the vintage, beautifully sweet tannin, and will certainly be some of the top wines in the vintage. The 2012s also check in near the top of the hierarchy."
2012 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Cuvée Papet, Clos du Mont-Olivet - 94 PARKER POINT
"Much more concentrated than the traditional cuvée, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape La Cuvee du Papet is a blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre, from the Montalivet, La Crau, Palestor, Bois Dauphin lieux-dits, that was aged 85% in foudre and 15% in demi-muids and small barrels. Its deep purple color is followed by fabulous notes of black raspberry, currants, crushed rock and peppery herbs. This flows to a medium to full-bodied, structured and classically put together Châteauneuf that has fresh acidity and no shortage of tannin. Give this beauty 3-5 years in the cellar, and enjoy bottles through 2032. This staunchly traditional estate has produced a solid lineup in both 2012 and 2013. Looking at the 2012s, the Cuvee Papet is significant step up over the base cuvee, but both have no shortage of tannin and will benefit from short term cellaring."
2011 Bandol, Domaine du Gros Noré - 94 PARKER-POINT
"Both of the reds are brilliant and most likely the wines of the vintage, the 2011 Bandol comes from 30-year-old vines and is a blend of 80% Mourvedre, 15% Grenache and 5% Cinsault. Aged 18 months in foudre, it’s a dense, concentrated 2011 that offers notions of black cherry, blackberry, earth and ground herbs on the nose. This flows to a full-bodied, gorgeously put together palate that has considerable structure, superb purity of fruit and a knockout finish. Give it another 2-3 years in the cellar and enjoy it over the following 15 years or more. Created in 1997 (they had previously sold their grapes to other domaines) and covering roughly 16 hectares in the appellation of Bandol, Domaine du Gros Nore is run by brothers Alain and Guy Pascal. I was blown away by the quality here and their wines were easily some of the top releases I was able to taste for this report."
2013 Schubert Pinot Noir, Marion's VIneyard, Schubert Wines - 93+ PARKER-POINT
"A beautiful pale ruby color, the 2013 Marion’s Block Pinot Noir has a beguiling nose of crushed cranberries, red currants and lavender with Provence herbs, underbrush and damp soil hints. Light to medium-bodied, it fills the palate with lively red berry and earth laced flavors supported with silky tannins and great freshness, finishing with wonderful length."
2011 Tito Zuccardi, Familia Zuccardi - 93 PARKER-POINT
"The 2011 Tito Zuccardi, named after Sebastian Zuccardi’s grandfather who created the winery, is fashioned from grapes sourced from La Consulta. It is a blend that changes each vintage; in 2011 the break down was 70% Malbec, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Ancelotta. Some whole-clusters are used for the fermentation in cement vats. The nose is pure and elegant, with notes of tobacco leaves, damsons, blueberries and very subtle spice and smoke aromas. The palate is medium-bodied and compact, with fine-grained tannins, freshness and length. Very drinkable and pleasant, with a great sense of harmony, it has the stuffing and balance to age gracefully. Drink now-2021"
2012 Clos La Madeleine, Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé - 92 PARKER-POINT
"This wine showed beautifully in my tasting. From a tiny (29 acres) jewel of a property on the hillsides of St.-Emilion, not far from the big boys of the plateau area (Ausone, Belair, etc), the 2012 is dense purple in color, with sweet black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, some crushed rock and floral notes, medium to full body, not a hard edge to be found, and a lush, well-proportioned, beautifully pure finish. This is impressive wine is clearly a sleeper of the vintage, but quantities are very small. Drink it over the next 15 years. The final blend was 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc"
2013 Meandro do Vale Meão, Douro, Quinta do Vale Meão - 92 PARKER-POINT
"The 2013 Meandro do Vale Meão is a blend of 38% Touriga Nacional, 30% Touriga Franca, 20% Tinta Roriz and 12% miscellaneous grapes aged for 12 months in second and third use Allier barriques. After finishing the first round of tasting, I poured out the glass and took a new one just to make sure I wasn´t mixing this up with the Estate Tinto. This Meandro did eventually become a bit less exuberant with air, but it seems full in the mouth on first taste, certainly relative to this level, and bursting with flavor as it airs out and opens up. All the while, it is very elegant. Everything this winery makes is just that, of course. There´s a bit of a backbone, too. This is a good bargain in most years, but this year perhaps more than most because while the quality may be up, the price is also coming down--a nice twist to the typical story. While the pricing for the Estate wine and the Port has increased, Meandro is now officially one of the better $20 wines (”Suggested Retail Price”) around."
2009 Saint Joseph, Offerus, J.-L. Chave Selection - 90 PARKER-POINT
"One of the finest examples of this cuvee Chave has yet made, the 2009 St.-Joseph Offerus is performing fabulously well from bottle. Produced from purchased grapes grown on the hillsides behind the village of Mauves as well as from further north on the hillsides above Tournon and St.-Jean de Muzols, this St.-Joseph reveals copious aromas of licorice, bay leaf, bouquet garni, roasted meats, black cherries and raspberries. It possesses an attractive texture as well as lots of fleshy, fat flavors, and good acidity and freshness. It, too, should drink nicely for a decade."
2013 Fort Ross Pinot Noir, Sea Slopes, Fort Ross Winery - 90 PARKER-POINT
"The 2013 Pinot Noir Sea Slopes gets its name from overlooking the Pacific Ocean at an elevation of 1,200 to 1,700 feet. The wine spent nine months in 10% new French oak prior to being bottled unfined and unfiltered. This wine offers loads of Chinese black tea, pomegranate, floral notes and a hint of raspberry in a medium-bodied, fresh, lively, Côte de Beaune style. Drink it over the next 5-7 years. This small operation boasts Jeff Pisoni as the winemaker and is owned by Lester and Linda Schwartz. They began planting their 55-acre vineyard in 1994, with the first vintage in 2000. The wines are all bottled unfined and unfiltered, with the Chardonnay coming from Old Hyde and Wente field selections. The Pinot Noir is generally an assemblage of clones such as Calera, Pommard, Swan and Dijon 115 and 777. These are impressive Burgundian-style Pinot Noirs that merit serious attention. These are all impressive wines sold at extremely fair prices."
2011 Paxxo Rosso del Veneto, Stefano Accordini - 90 PARKER-POINT
"The 2011 Paxxo is an interesting wine that undergoes a light appassimento from harvest until November. The blend used is 60% Corvina Veronese, 10% Rondinella, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot. Each blending component adds fruitiness, density, structure and softness respectively. It delivers dark flavors of black fruit and spice. Drink 2014-2020. Up the zigzagging strada provinciale 33 beyond the well-visited production zones of San Pietro in Cariano and Fumane is Stefano Accordini, near the sleepy town of Cavalo. In the 1970s, Stefano Accordini planted grapevines in the Bessole and Fornetto crus that make some of the estate’s best wines today. Years later, the Accordini family purchased more vineyards near Cavalo and Mazzurega at 550 meters above sea level. These are some of the highest growing spots in the Valpolicella. The bright acidity of the grapes often peeks through, helping to balance out the natural sweetness inherent to Amarone. Four generations of the Accordini family have been at the helm of this brand."
2014 Côtes du Rhône, A Séraphin, Clos du Mont-Olivet - 89 PARKER-POINT
"The most structured and tannic of the Côtes du Rhône’s from Mont Olivet, the 2014 Côtes du Rhône A Seraphin offers plenty of pepper, liquid rock and assorted darker fruits to go with a medium-bodied, tight, taunt feel on the palate. Possessing good acidity and building tannin, it will have 5-7 years of longevity, but is not for those looking for hedonistic textures or flavors. The wines from Clos du Mont Olivet are always structured and tannic in their youth, but have a great track record with regards to aging. Nevertheless, these latest releases are relatively mid-weight and I suspect best consumed in their first decade."
2013 Cairanne, Côtes du Rhône Villages, Domaine Alary - 89 PARKER-POINT
"More firm and structured than the Carmin cuvee, the 2013 Carianne Vieilles Vignes (70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Carignan) gives up ample dark fruits, licorice and smoke in its earthy, meaty and peppery bouquet. There’s a northern Rhône-like edge here, and I suspect this medium-bodied, nicely concentrated Cairanne will be better in 6-12 months and drink nicely through 2021+. Run by Denis and Jean-Etienne Alary and one of the top estates in Cairanne, Domaine Alary always delivers impeccably made wines that over deliver for the price. They get consulting advice from Olivier Roustang, who also consults for Jean-Louis Chave in Hermitage. This may contribute to the traditional, structured feel in the wines, and they always have solid concentration and firm, tannic backbones. The top cuvees benefit from short term cellaring."
