Every vintage, if you can get your hands on this one, it’s one of the best Roses hands down in Provence. Unfortunately, we couldn’t last year due to the tariffs. But this vintage was worth the wait. Château Revelette is an incredible property set at a crazy elevation north of Mount Saint Victoire in the heart of Provence. Their 2020 release is super bright and focused, delivering high-toned flavors of wild strawberry, ripe peach and melon with plenty of extraction and length. It’s a traditional Provencal blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault.
A perfect Tuesday night wine that delivers value far above its price tag. It’s both juicy and fine loaded with aromas and flavors of red flowers, berries and anise. This is one of those incredibly food friendly wines coming out of the Rhone that seems like striking gold to stumble upon. An old vine Grenache-Syrah blend from vineyards planted at some of the highest points in the Rhône, this is a gift that gives every vintage and even if I have to wait a few years to get my hands on the next vintage, I’m more than happy to do it for a winner like this.
The vines from which the 2019 “Les Galets de la Berthaude” draws its grapes are quite old – the average being 60 years old – with many well over one hundred years old. This year’s 2019 “Les Galets de la Berthaude” is made in the style the Nicholas Wines buyers love best; quite simply 80% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 100% delicious. This is a racy, structured and elegant CdP with the bones to age very nicely for the next decade and a half.

Sourced from 30 to 50-year-old vines in two renowned villages, Ogier’s new Cotes du Rhone release, his 2019 Le Temps Est Venu is the best value in a lineup of 18 outstanding Reds with his bottles being fought over constantly by serious wine collectors and Michelin-starred joints from Paris to New York City.

Standing up to a rack of BBQ ribs is no easy task, but a big yet easy drinking red wine courtesy of superstar winemaker Pete Stolpman always does the trick. His 2019 La Cuadrilla is a Châteauneuf-styled southern Rhone blend that is predominantly Syrah and absolutely delicious. Fresh, vibrant red fruits that taste silky, with great structure and length, this is always one of my favorites. The profits from the wine go directly to the crew who pick the grapes and make it all happen.
91 Points, Jeb Dunnuck
“The 2019 Red Wine checks in as 50% Syrah, 35% Grenache, 12% Mourvèdre, and the balance Viognier, all of which was 85% de-stemmed, and it spent 10 months in neutral oak. Lots of red, blue, and black fruits as well as peppery and spice dominate the nose, and it’s medium to full-bodied, with plenty of fruit, surprising complexity, and good overall freshness. It’s a smoking good red as well as a value.”
90-92 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Xavier Vignon’s highest ever rated CDR 100% from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate was described as, “Rich, velvety and long”. All three adjectives accurately describe what Xavier Vignon believes might be his greatest vintage of winemaking yet. His 100% Cotes du Rhone offers the best value in his impressive arsenal, with big, juicy flavors flooding out of this one and making it the ideal wine to enjoy with most anything at the table or by itself so it can truly shine.

In the historic 2016 vintage, even Xavier will tell you there wasn’t a whole lot he could do but get out of the way and let the wine speak for itself. As he told Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, “2016 was just like a dream. The best autumn I’ve ever seen.” The vintage has received a 99-point score, and its easy to understand why. All the CdPs I’ve tasted from 2016 are great. But with Xavier Vignon, the master always delivers a cut above the rest. This is a winner.
