Chateau des Ferrages 2019 Mon Plaisir Awarded 91 points by Jeb Dunnuck


Jeb Dunnuck’s latest report is out: “The Southern Rhône Valley continues to produce an amazing amount of incredibly delicious, Provençal wines with the 2018 and 2019 vintages.”

91 points: Château des Ferrages 2019 Mon Plaisir Sainte-Victoire Côtes de Provence

The 2019 Mon Plaisir Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire is a classic Provençal rosé from this appellation. It has an incredible sense of minerality as well as terrific notes of white flowers, tart strawberries, orange blossoms, and redcurrants. More medium-bodied, with a light, refreshing, crisp texture as well as dry finish, this classic rosé is ideal for drinking over the coming 6 months or so.” – J. D.

Pierre Brut Nature Mauzac 2016 receives 90 points from Wine & Spirits

Wine & Spirits – December 2019

2016 Pierre Blanquette de Limoux Brut Nature Mauazac

90 points – ”Juicy, spicy, limey, floral – this packs a lot of flavor for $21, and delivers it on a clean, brisk wash of fine bubbles. It’s the sort of sparkler to keep in the fridge for weeknight dinners or lazy Sunday lunches.”

Wine & Spirits names Cluster M45 Shiraz 2012 as Top 100 Best Wine of the Year 2019

Wine & Spirits – October 15, 2019
Top 100 Best Wines of the Year
95 points | M. Chapoutier & Laughton 2012 Victoria Cluster M45 Shiraz

”Michel Chapoutier joined forces with Ron Laughton of Jasper Hill to grow this wine in Heathcote’s Cambrian soils, where they dry-farm the vines under biodynamics. Their 2012 is a delicate beauty, a wine of cool refinement, light in weight while driving forward with complexity and gamey savor. The deep ruby color mirrors the wine’s concentration and transparency; the scent of black olives and leather and the black-peppercorn spice of its fruit tannins will keep drawing you back to the glass. This sustains its freshness over the course of days, attesting to its bright future, with years of development ahead if you’re patient enough to cellar it.”

Bila Haut L'Esquerda 2017 receives 91 point rating from Wine Enthusiast

Wine Enthusiast – October 2019

Buying Guide

91 points – ”There’s an earthy edge to the nose on this wine, with tones of cigar box, tobacco leaf, leather, cured meat, licorice and blackberry bramble. The palate is bold and filling, with robust, gripping tannins that provide a strong frame for the dense black-fruit-skin flavors. After the fruit subsides, notes of leather, tobacco and tilled earth ride through to the lingering close, while a hint of iron unfolds on the back. Drink 2021-2025.” – L.B.


Bila Haut Occultum Lapidem 2016 receives 91 point rating from Wine Enthusiast

Wine Enthusiast – October 2019

Buying Guide

91 points – ”This wine is initially quiet and reserved, with light blackberry paste and black-cherry tones that are spiced by hints of dark chocolate, licorice and turned earth. The palate boasts a firm, tannic structure and bright acidity, with flavors of tobacco, chocolate, black plum and blackberry. Herbal and spicy root overtones linger on the close” – L.B.
