The Jaumes have farmed their estate in Vinsobres for 100+ years. Their old vines thrive on the high elevation, mineral soil of Vinsobres, one of my favorite villages for Tuesday night wine in the southern Rhone. Richard Jaume’s bottled 2018 Côtes-du-Rhône is both juicy and fine, loaded with flavors and aromas of red flowers, rosemary and berries.
Matt Cline knows he’s extremely fortunate to be making wine from vines that date back almost 130 years. While he is most known for his dazzling single-vineyard offerings of Zinfandel, Carignan, Mataro and Petite Sirah, his Old Vines Field Blend might offer the best value. The 2016 OVFB is an absolute powerhouse and is a wine like none you’ve ever tasted. Think Amarone meets CDP!

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
89-91 Pts, Parker’s Wine Advocate
The ‘mad scientist’ Xavier Vignon returns in the absolutely ridiculous 2017 vintage, which Wine Spectator gave a staggering 99-point score to. In what could be the French bargain of the year, Xavier’s CDR in 2017 was called “somewhere between silky and velvety” by Parker’s Wine Advocate.
