96 points, Wine Spectator/Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
A tremendous wine from Saint Emilion in the remarkable 2010 vintage in Bordeaux. This wine has dual 96 point scores from Wine Spectator and Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate and was recognized by Wine Spectator as the #2 Wine in the world in their Annual Top 100 Wine list in 2013 when the wine was first released.
The vineyards of Château Reverdi are classic Medoc. The 30 year-old Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot vines are farmed naturally. The wine defines the classic 2016 vintage with a deep, dark color, an enticing, forward bouquet of cedar, lead pencil and cassis, absolutely juicy fruit and a mineral backbone. Drink now-2025.
The 2019 Effet Papillon Rose is made 100% from Grenache (as many of the best Southern French Roses are). Pale salmon in color, it boasts aromas of bright red fruits, orange rinds and a hint of lemon zest. It’s incredibly smooth and dry, making it a great food wine– but this Rose is serious with depth and complexity, making it worthy of enjoying on its own.
Winemaker Marjorie Gallet’s Effet Papillon Rouge is a terrific blend of Grenache, Syrah and Carignane, harvested from the iron rich soil just outside of Rivesaltes at the base of Pyrenees. The nose is all about black fruits and baking spices. On the palate, the wine is so fresh, pure and elegant. It’s a house wine with phenomenal value
Winemaker Patrick Brunet’s tiny Domaine Robert estate consists of 50-60 year old vines, deeply rooted in the granitic soils of Fleurie. 2018 produced concentrated, structured Beaujolais, delicious today but with the bones to improve in the bottle over the next decade. Pretty remarkable for wine that comes in under $20 on cases.
Every grape at Roc des Anges is picked by hand when the temperature is coolest and is kept cool all the way into the press. From there, the effect of the mineral soil takes over, providing great finesse and freshness in every bottle. This white blend has rich fruit, vibrant minerality, and a beautiful bouquet of aromas.

Xavier Vignon’s 2016 Côtes du Rhone 100% is 100% of what a CDR can be….perhaps even more so in 2016 (the best vintage in the southern Rhone in a generation to my taste). Xavier’s 2016 100% CDR is completely knocked-out with superb aromatics, a generous mid-palate and long finish. At today’s price tag, it’s a no brainer-case buy.

“Flowering garrigue notes bring a lovely touch to the full- bodied 2016 Cairanne. This is plush and creamy in texture, rich and warm, with a supple finish that suggests early drinking. Don’t be tempted to hold it past another few years.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
