Tasting like the essence of these sun baked slopes, the 2019 Rasteau Vieilles Vignes offer a rich, powerful, full-bodied style as well as classic Rasteau notes of black cherries, chocolate, scorched earth, and pepper. Rich, concentrated, and structured, it’s going to benefit from 2–3 years of bottle age and keep for over a decade. (Jeb Dunnuck)

Ripe and well-built, featuring red licorice and singed anise notes guiding the core of juicy raspberry and plum compote flavors along, with good brambly energy through the finish. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2025. 800 cases made, 40 cases imported. (James Molesworth)

Where It's From

Region / Rhone

View more wines from Rhone

Located along the path of the Rhone River, the Rhone wine region in southeastern France is beautiful and very productive. It's typically divided into two sub-regions, the Northern Rhone and Southern Rhone, and the wines produced in these sub-regions are very different from one another.

The southern Rhone is warm and dry, and produces robust, full-flavored red wines, oftentimes blends with Grenache used as the primary grape. Chateauneuf-du-Pape is without question the most celebrated town for wine production in the Southern Rhone region.

Meanwhile, the Northern Rhone features a cooler climate and steep-sloped vineyards. Syrah is the dominant red grape, and the wines are typically tannic, deeply colored, and highly acidic wines (which leads them to get better with age).

Country / France

View more wines from France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.

Domaine Roche’s 2019 Cotes du Rhone comes out of the bottle a bit rubbery and tarry, so give it a brief stint in a decanter before serving. Once it’s had some time, scents of black cherries and black olives emerge. Full-bodied, supple and generous, with ample concentration and attractive hints of licorice on the finish, this ripe, mouth-filling red should be a terrific value; the 2018 retails for well under $20. (Joe Czerwinski)
JD89+89–91 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 3/5/2021
Beautiful black raspberry, peppery herbs, earth, and some chocolate notes emerge from the 2019 Côtes du Rhône. A ripe, pure, beautifully balanced Cotes du Rhone, it has no hard edges and the class to drink nicely for 4–6 years. It’s well worth seeking out and would be one heck of a house red. (Jeb Dunnuck)

Bright ruby. Ripe red berries, cherry pie, lavender and exotic aromas show sharp definition and pick up a smoky mineral nuance as the wine opens up. Sweet and seamless in texture, offering concentrated yet energetic raspberry, cherry liqueur, exotic five-spice powder and floral pastille flavors braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Deftly blends richness and delicacy and finishes extremely long and smooth, with repeating florality and polished tannins that add shape and subtle grip.
JD9595 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/3/2021
Based on 100% Grenache, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Pi is another gorgeous wine from this estate. Lots of ripe black raspberry, cherry, and strawberry fruits as well as violets, pepper, and Provençal garrigue emerge on the nose, and it’s medium to full-bodied, with a round, seamless, elegant mouthfeel, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It will evolve for 15 years in cold cellars. (Jeb Dunnuck)
WE9494 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 5/1/2022
Deep tones of blackberry and preserved raspberry are plump and creamy on the palate of this full-bodied, concentrated varietal Grenache. Ripe yet lifted by veins of crushed salt, stone and peppery spice, this deftly composed, penetrating wine should improve well through 2035.
SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2021
Fresh and racy-edged, with black cherry, damson plum and raspberry coulis notes racing through, lined with bright acidity and a floral edge before ending with a subtle chalky minerality that gives this balance. Grenache. Best from 2022 through 2030. 250 cases made, 30 cases imported. (James Molesworth)

Moving to the reds, the 2019 Côtes Du Rhône is a smoking good effort offering loads of character in its red and black fruits as well as peppery herbs and leathery aromas and flavors. Liquid Provence in a bottle, it’s medium to full-bodied, has a ripe, rounded mouthfeel, and outstanding length. I’d buy it. (Jeb Dunnuck)
SP8585 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 14, 2022
An earthy wine, with sweet cassis and charred cedar aromas that take a smoky turn on the palate, with bacon accents on the slightly chewy finish. Grenache and Syrah. Drink now through 2025. 2,000 cases made, 1,667 cases imported. (Kristen Bieler)

JD100100 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/3/2021
The tiny production 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Le Secret Des Sabon is a field blend of mostly Grenache brought up all in wooden tronconique barrels. It’s closest in style to the Prestige Cuvée yet brings another level of opulence and richness without losing any sense of elegance or class. Blackberries, peppery herbs, graphite, crushed violets, and a liquid rock-like minerality all define the nose, and it hits the palate with incredible depth of fruit, full-bodied richness, and ripe yet building tannins. While the acidity is technically quite low (the pH is 3.8), it holds onto an undeniable sense of freshness and purity. It is just a thrilling, magical wine from this estate. While young and unevolved, with 3–5 years of cellaring required, it is a modern-day legend capable of evolving for over two decades. (Jeb Dunnuck)
VN9696 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2021
Shimmering ruby. Powerful, mineral-accented black raspberry and cherry liqueur aromas are complemented by incense, licorice and potpourri flourishes. Juicy, sweet and impressively concentrated, offering palate-staining red/blue fruit, spicecake and lavender pastille flavors braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Brawny yet surprisingly lithe as well, showing outstanding clarity and youthfully chewy tannins on the strikingly long, floral and spice-tinged finish.
SP9696 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2021
Juicy, dense and packed, yet remarkably defined, with a mix of plum and racy-edged blackberry, boysenberry and raspberry reduction flavors, all laced with a licorice snap thread. Black tea, garrigue and humus accents underscore the finish as the fruit sails through with aplomb. A beauty. Drink now through 2038. 125 cases made, 42 cases imported.
WS9494 pts. - Wine & Spirits - 10/21
The Sabon family’s 45-acre estate is in the northeast of Châteauneuf, where the soils are sandy and rich in limestone; the oldest vines date to the early 1900s. They are the focus of this cuvée, mainly grenache with an undisclosed amount of other varieties blended in. The details of its vinification are also kept a secret, until its final destination, a single demi-muid barrel. The clarity of the 2019 suggests a light hand in the cellar: It radiates red fruit like sun filtered through a ruby. Underneath, fine-grained tannins gird the juicy fruit and draw out a meaty spice, the wine steadfast and lively at the same time. This will age well but it’s also delicious now, the balance of bright fruit and substantial spice suggesting a match with a paella studded with merguez sausages.

Almost all Grenache, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape A La Gloire De Mon Grand-Père comes from the La Gardiole lieu-dit and was aged 80% in demi-muids and 20% in foudre. Its deep purple/plum color is followed by a stunning array of black cherry, blackberry, and ripe strawberry fruits as well as candied flowers, orange blossom, and toasted spice. As with the old vine cuvée, the tannins have a firm edge and it’s built with short-term cellaring in mind, yet the purity is brilliant, I love its balance, and this is just a stunning Grenache that’s going to have two decades of pure pleasure giving. (Jeb Dunnuck)
SP9696 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 31, 2021
This is packed, featuring juicy and energetic raspberry, blackberry and dark plum pate de fruit flavors wrapped in licorice root, black tea, singed juniper and incense notes. Everything knits tightly through the finish, with the underlying freshness extending to a lengthy finish as the juniper note leaves a mouthwatering echo. Serious, old school style. Best from 2024 through 2038. 1,500 cases made, 275 cases imported. (James Molesworth)

An up-front, pretty version of this cuvée that leads with its fruit, the 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes Blanc offers lots of honeyed pineapple, white flowers, quince, and subtle toasty notes to go with medium to full-bodied richness and depth on the palate. It shows some classic bitter almond and minerality with time in the glass and has a great texture, good overall freshness, and a great finish. (Jeb Dunnuck)
SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2021
There’s a flashy shortbread aromatic leading off here, but this stays bright and lively thanks to well-defined yellow apple and mirabelle notes. Verbena and quinine underscore the finish, adding focus and length. Delicious. Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Clairette, Bourboulenc and Picpoul. Drink now through 2022. 500 cases made, 50 cases imported. (James Molesworth)

Another killer wine, the 2019 Saint-Joseph Vieilles Vignes reveals a dense purple color to go with loads of red and blue fruits, bacon fat, cured meat, and spring flowers. Offering classic Saint-Joseph minerality, medium to full-bodied richness, and plenty of both acidity and tannins, it’s going to shine for 15 years or more. (Jeb Dunnuck)

Ripe apricots, white flowers, and crushed stone emerge from the 2021 Condrieu, a medium-bodied, elegant Condrieu with good acidity, plenty of fruit, and outstanding length. From a cooler, more challenging vintage, it still brings plenty of richness and is an outstanding 2021 to drink over the coming 4–6 years of so. (Jeb Dunnuck)

A textbook Tavel, the 2023 Tavel Vieilles Vignes has a deep amber/ruby hue as well as a ripe, powerful, yet still lively and fresh nose of mulled strawberries, flowers, and a kiss of herbes de Provence. Medium-bodied on the palate, it brings ample richness, a round, layered mouthfeel, a good spine of acidity, and a certain saltiness on the finish. It’s beautifully done and geared for the dinner table. (Jeb Dunnuck)

The smallest production cuvée and almost all Grenache from the sandy parts of la Crau, the 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Spéciale gives up a huge nose of cassis, orange peel, spring flowers, and spice. It’s full-bodied, incredibly pure, elegant, and silky, with no hard edges and remarkable purity. It’s a killer wine and unquestionably one of the gems in the vintage. (Jeb Dunnuck)
RP94+94–96 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Aug 2019
From a parcel of Grenache in la Crau (ouest)’s sandy soils, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Speciale is the pick of the T-L CdP lineup. Yes, there’s hallmark cedar and vanilla touches, but once past those, there’s incredible raspberry and kirsch flavors. Full-bodied, supple and creamy across the palate, it ends silky and long, with intense fruit coming through on the finish.
VN93+93–94 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2019
Deep bright-rimmed violet. Deep-pitched red berry preserve, candied licorice and exotic spice aromas are lifted by a smoky mineral note that gains strength as the wine opens up. Broad and fleshy in the mouth, offering bitter cherry, black raspberry and fruitcake flavors and a touch of spicy white pepper. In a distinctly ample style but not at all lacking for energy. The impressively long, gently tannic finish shows no rough edges and leaves a sappy cherry liqueur note behind.
SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - May 31, 2020
Dark currant, fig and blackberry paste flavors are melded together, carried by a graphite spine and infused with red tea, anise and sweet tobacco notes on the finish. Solidly built. Best from 2021 through 2035. 625 cases made, 20 cases imported. (James Molesworth)

Expressive nose of dark berries, roasted meat, smoke, and dried leaves with baking spices and cold fire-pit undertones. It’s full-bodied with finely grained tannins. Textured with a suave character. Elegant Hermitage here with controlled power at all stages. Focused and concentrated yet it has this brightness of fruit at the center with succulent cherries and wild currants providing freshness and verve. Superb. Drinkable now, but best from 2026.

A big step up, the 2018 Gigondas Vieilles Vignes is a remarkable effort offering gorgeous black raspberries, garrigue, spice, and floral aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, pure, and balanced, with beautiful depth of fruit, it’s up with the top wines in the vintage. This cuvée is 90% Grenache and the balance Syrah and Mourvèdre, fermented with lots of stems, and aged in once- and twice-used barrels followed by a year in foudre. 625 cases. (Jeb Dunnuck)
WE9494 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 3/1/2021
Spicy hits of clove, nutmeg and cinnamon entice on the nose of this full-bodied, luminous red. An invigorating blend of Grenache (80%), Mourvèdre (10%) and Syrah (10%), it offers youthful blackberry and plum flavors etched by hints of lavender, sage and bramble. A lovely, unadorned expression of Gigondas best now–2030.
RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 24th Sep 2020
The 2018 Gigondas Vieilles Vignes is 80% Grenache, with the remaining 20% split equally between Mourvèdre and Syrah. Two-thirds of the fruit was undestemmed, and the wine matured in previously used barrels for 10 months, then in foudre. It’s a top-flight effort, with soaring aromas of herbal tea and red raspberries. Medium to full-bodied, it’s silky in texture, with a long, vibrant finish that ends in a flurry of soft tannins.

Classic notes of quince, crushed stone, honeysuckle, toasted bread, marzipan, and white flowers emerge from the 2019 Hermitage Blanc, a rich, full-bodied white with a dense mid-palate, flawless balance, and a great finish. This is head-turning stuff that has some up-front approachability, yet its tight, backward, concentrated core of fruit suggests that 2–3 years of bottle age are warranted, and it’s going to keep for 30 years or more.

A rich and showy wine, with singed brioche and salted butter notes leading off, followed by creamed yellow apple, mirabelle plum, melon and mango notes all mixed together.
