Bressy Rasteau Rouge Gourt Mautens 2009

Bressy Rasteau Rouge Gourt Mautens 2009  is a blend of Grenache Noir, Carignan, Mourvedre, Sryah, Vaccarese, Terret Noir and Counoise grown on chalky clay marls with north-west and south-west exposure.

Hand picked, sorted in the vineyard and agin in the winery. Crushed with natural fermentation in truncated wooden vats. Ages in casks, demi-muids and concrete vats for between 24 and 36 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.


Also incredible, the 2009 Rasteau has a similar, decadent feel in its black raspberry, licorice, smoked earth, chocolate and saddle leather. A blend of 70% Grenache and 30% other permitted varieties, aged in a combination of demi-muid, foudre and concrete tank, it has full-bodied power, massive, yet sweet tannin and blockbuster levels of depth and richness. Drink it anytime over the coming decade or more.- Wine Advocate 96 Points

Mordoree Chateauneuf du Pape La Reine des Bois 2012

Mordoree Chateauneuf-du-Pape La Reine des Bois 2012 is made from 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre, 5% Syrah, 2.5% Vaccarese, 2.5% Counoise.

60 year-old vines
Aged in 50% oak barrels.
Deep ruby red color, red fruits aromas leading to leather, black truffles and coffee notes. Fat and concentrated on the palate, with liquorice and dark fruit flavors.
Pairs well with game and red meats, cheeses.


"One of the blockbusters in the vintage, the inky-colored 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape La Reine des Bois – 80% Grenache, completely destemmed and aged 12 months in 80% stainless steel and 20% old barrels – offers fantastic richness and depth in its blackberry liqueur, graphite, wood smoke and crushed-rock-like aromas and flavors. An elegant, stylish and polished example of this cuvée, it comes closest in my mind to a lighter-weight 2010. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and with fine tannin, it will drink well for 10-15 years. - Jeb Dunnuck"

Grand Veneur Chateauneuf Du Pape Blanc La Fontaine 2013

Grand Veneur Dom Chateauneuf Du Pape Blanc La Fontaine 2013 is made from 100% Roussane.

Yellow-gold color. The nose is rich in aromas of citrus fruit, tropical fruit, quince and honey, with a touch of vanilla. On the palate, the same aromas appear together with a fatness combining exotic fruit and vanilla : the wine is rich, generous and elegant, with extraordinary length. "La Fontaine" is often considerated to be one of the best Châteauneuf du Pape white, and it is by definition a superb gastronomy wine.

Best between 1 and 8 years.



Their top white is the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape La Fontaine Blanc. A blend of 100% Roussanne that’s aged 10% in small barrels (the majority is in stainless steel), it’s a classy, balanced and medium to full-bodied beauty that gives up classic buttered citrus, white peach, melon and spice. Like the classic cuvée, this will gain a touch more richness and flesh with another 6-12 months in bottle, and drink nicely for 3-4 years at a minimum.

This estate, under the leadership of Sebastien and Christophe Jaume, continues to be one of the reference point producers for relatively modern styled Châteauneuf du Papes. In addition to their top tier efforts, the portfolio is loaded with smoking values at just about every price point. I’ve listed domaine wines under Domaine Grand Veneur, and the negociant wines under Alain Jaume, which I believe might also include some vineyards owned by the Jaume family as well. Regardless, the quality here is superb across the range. In addition, they’ve excelled in both 2012 and 2013. Wine Advocate 93 Points

Tamarack Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Reserve 2010

Dark and chocolatey, spiced with pretty notes of allspice and clove, this wine is round and rich, bursting with ripe berries, combined with an earthy complexity and a velvety finish.

made from 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot,  25% Cabernet Franc. 

The wine spent 22 months on 75% new French oak with the remaining 25% second vintage French oak. Select barrels from the best forests of Taransaud, Boutes, Quintessance, and Vicard cooperages.



A ripe, vibrant and refined red, with slightly gritty tannins around a plush, focused core of cherry, raspberry pie, cinnamon and clove flavors, coming together harmoniously as the finish persists. Best from 2016 through 2020. 136 cases made. Wine Spectator 93 Points

Loring Mateo Chardonnay 2014

Mateo is the fruit of the friendship between two winemakers (José Ignacio Cuenca & Brian Loring), two countries (Spain & the US) and two worlds (the Old & the New). This wine is a unique blend of California's finest Chardonnay grapes and is dedicated to José Mateo Cuenca Anderson.

This wine has bright lemon on the nose with a supple palate of lemon, graham cracker, and toast that continues through the finish.

Valsacro Dioro Rioja 2005

The latest step in the project is Valsacro Dioro. The earlier Valsacros were made from a field selection of the older vineyards. Now, thanks to the new facility Amador has been able to build an upmarket version of Valsacro with a four-stage selection process that includes an initial field selection of the fruit followed by a second table selection as the grapes come into the winery. After fermentation wine from selected tanks is transferred to new French oak barrels for 12-14 months of barrel age. Finally, the best barrels are set aside for Dioro and the remainder used to "upgrade" the normal Valsacro.

"(aged in new French oak): Glass-staining ruby. Extremely perfumed, oak-accented nose displays cherry-vanilla and blackberry preserves, with a sexy floral note and building spiciness. Full-bodied and velvety, offering palate-coating flavors of macerated cherry, dark berries and vanilla bean. Finishes very long and sweet, with persistent spiciness and a hint of smoke. An extremely attractive and balanced example of the modern style."
- Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Sept/Oct 2011), 92 pts

"The 2005 Dioro was produced from a stricter selection and was aged in new French oak for 12-14 months. A saturated purple color, it displays a brooding bouquet of wood smoke, pencil lead, espresso, truffle, and blackberry. Dense and loaded on the palate, it has gobs of ripe black fruit, excellent balance, and a lengthy, pure finish. It will continue to blossom over the next 3-4 years and have a drinking window extending from 2014 to 2025."
