Pierre Gaillard Marsanne 2015 Product #31210 (In Stock)
Pierre Gaillard Marsanne 2015 Pierre Gaillard Marsanne 2015

Pierre Gaillard’s more famous for his blockbuster Cornas and Northern Rhone reds, but he’s got a fine touch with whites as well.  This is 100% Marsanne – one of the building blocks of white Hermitage – that’s loaded with creamy stone fruit flavors and a touch of wet stone.  Very rich, round, and deep but with enough acidity to shine with food.  If you enjoy Viognier or any kind of white Rhone, you’ll love this. Tastes much more luxurious than the modest price suggests!

Dom Des Pierres Seches Ardeche Syrah 2014 Product #30927 (In Stock)
Dom Des Pierres Seches Ardeche Syrah 2014 Dom Des Pierres Seches Ardeche Syrah 2014

A sneaky fine Syrah from Ardeche, the catch-all appellation surrounding the Northern Rhone.  Pop and pour and you'll find a juicy, ripe, and very fun bistro red, a wine showing the fruitiness and texture of a good Beaujolais with a touch of Crozes-Hermitage Syrah violet and black fruit.  Fresh and fun at first, give this some time in decanter and it takes on weight and loads of meaty, smoky, stony Syrah character emerges to complement the blueberry/blackberry fruit.  Either way, it's a lot of wine and loaded with food-friendly character at a very attractive price.

Guigal Crozes Hermitage Rouge 2013 Product #31675 (In Stock)
Guigal Crozes Hermitage Rouge 2013 Guigal Crozes Hermitage Rouge 2013

Another "textbook" example of this great value Northern Rhone Syrah region.  Plenty of ripe fruit with a tangy, food-friendly, finish.

"This has a solid core of dark plum and raspberry fruit, lined with lightly tarry tannins and driving through a licorice- and tobacco-edged finish. A textbook example of Crozes. Drink now through 2019. 3,000 cases imported."Wine Spectator 90 points

Vincent Paris St Joseph Les Cotes 2015 Product #31682 (In Stock)
Vincent Paris St Joseph Les Cotes 2015 Vincent Paris St Joseph Les Cotes 2015

The Wine Advocate review does about as much as we could to explain what this stunning, 100% Syrah, smells and tastes like.  Except we think it’s even better than what the words convey.  Ours is the lowest price you’ll find in the USA and we don’t have much (although more will come later this Spring).  If you don’t like this, then Northern Rhone Syrah just isn’t your thing.  But we think you will…

"The young Vincent Paris has turned out brilliant wines in 2015 that readers to need to snatch up. In addition to his Cornas releases, Paris releases a terrific St Joseph. The inky black-colored 2015 Saint Joseph les Côtes was completely destemmed and aged in a mix of tank and barrels. It offers a gorgeous perfume of violets, black and blue fruits, pepper and hints of mint in a full-bodied, layered and elegant style. The tannin quality here is beautiful, it has top-notch purity and a great finish."Wine Advocate 92 points

Dom Des Pierres Seches St Joseph 2014 Product #30928 (In Stock)
Dom Des Pierres Seches St Joseph 2014 Dom Des Pierres Seches St Joseph 2014

Sylvain Gauthier is a young winemaker to watch in the Northern Rhone.  Born in Lorraine, trained in Burgundy, and since 2007, making his own wines from Syrah in and around the Northern Rhone.  As far as we can tell, Olivier Daubresse is the first to import Sylvain's wines to the US, but the Wine Advocate managed to track down a bottle of the 2013 St Joseph last year and awarded it a very nice 90 point rating.

From the cooler 2014 vintage, this is a ripe but elegant take on St Joseph Syrah, with a nice touch of barrel for complexity and richness.  Ripe black berry and plum scents gain complexity from notes of roasted meat, smoked stone, and spicy oak.  Plenty of depth and richness here, but no excess weight and outstanding freshness through the long, mouthwatering, lip smacking, finish.  Enjoy right now with grilled lamb and keep some to continue to enjoy for another 4-8 years as it gains complexity and earthy depth.
