In his final review of the region before departing Wine Advocate to launch JebDunnuck.com, Jeb tackled the 2015 Chateauneuf vintage, reporting, "The reds are full-bodied and show beautiful purity of fruit, good concentration and notable, yet ripe and rounded tannin structures." Winemakers were upbeat, too, "Most vignerons I spoke with compared 2015 to a mix of 2007 and 2010..." This certainly applies to the wines I like to offer. Today's group – from my good buddy, importer Peter Weygandt – represents just such a set; wines which you know, have made a part of your personal collections for decades, and which consistently top the charts. Usseglio is a prime example. "Undeniably one of the big successes in the vintage..." Jeb tells us, Usseglio's Imperiale Cuvee is staggering, and it's paired with Peter's personal cuvee – Girard – showcasing the incredible talents at this estate. Two of the finest traditional cuvees on the market today come from the cellars of Ferrand as well as Charvin. Josh Raynolds of Vinous considers Charvin's 2015 "perhaps the best wine ever..." while the 2015 Ferrand is "impressively suave and focused..." Together, here's a group of 2015s you're truly gonna want.

95V

Brilliant ruby. Powerful, mineral-accented aromas of ripe red berries, cherry pit, potpourri and musky rhubarb, backed by a hint of Asian spices. Sweet, concentrated and seamless in texture, offering intense raspberry, cherry and lavender pastille flavors and a touch of licorice. Impressively suave and focused; a powerful jolt of candied flowers carries through the long, palate-staining finish.

93-95 points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous (Mar 2017)
