2015 Rhone

2015 Rhone
The hits just keep on coming, 2015 is spoiling us with great wines from all over the world, but few Regions knocked it out of the park like the Rhone Valley in this historic vintage.Check out some of our latest and greatest releases:

2015 St Cosme Gigondas....$39.99
A textbook version of the brawny side of Gigondas, this offers a grippy alder bass line underneath layers of dark currant and fig fruit, while lots of tobacco, rosemary and bay fill in throughout. Muscular and energetic, this is built for the cellar
Rated 95/100 The Wine Spectator

2015 Janasse Chateauneuf du Pape Chaupin...$65.99
Pretty, with cassis and warm raspberry puree notes carried by silky but persistent structure, while rooibos tea, blood orange and incense accents fill in the background. The streamlined finish pulls everything together, letting the silky, perfumy feel sail on.
Rated 95/100 Wine Spectator

2015 Janasse Cotes du Rhone Terre D Argile...$19.99
Blue fruits and flowers on the nose. The freshness and open-knit structure make a compelling combination of generously fleshy and flavorsome style. Plums and blackberries throughout.
Rated 91/100 James Suckling

2015 Janasse Chateauneuf du Pape VV...$89.99 / 750ml 

2015 Janasse Chateauneuf du Pape VV...$182.99 / Magnums
Ripe and focused, with a delightful mix of cassis, blood orange and cherry coulis flavors streaming through, backed by black tea and apple wood accents. Finely beaded acidity lets the fruit stretch out, while a light mineral edge adds range. Shows an echo of licorice snap at the very end. Dense, but there’s remarkable grace here.
Rated 97/100 The Wine Spectator
