2006 ST JEAN DU BARROUX PIERRES NOIRES
"Although slightly more expensive than most offerings in this report, this wine was just too remarkable not to include. A sensational red, it reveals a grand cru Burgundy-like bouquet of forest floor, black raspberries, and flowers, extraordinarily intense fruit, and a full-bodied yet delicate, layered mouthfeel. I know it sounds ridiculous, but it aromatics reminded me of some top vintages of Cotes de Nuits grand crus, although no oak is utilized. A remarkable achievement, it can be consumed over the next 4-5 years, although it may last even longer."
"A breakthrough effort for the Cotes du Ventoux, this 2006, made by proprietor Philippe Gimel from his bio-dynamically farmed vineyards, is a blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah. (I was not surprised to learn that Gimel apprenticed under Christophe Sabon at Domaine de la Janasse.) Yields were 15 hectoliters per hectare, and the wine was aged in concrete tanks." 94 Points Robert Parker
"The estate's top cuvee and much more reserved, dense, and seemingly serious than the l'Argile, the 2006 Saint Jean du Barroux Cotes du Ventoux La Pierre Noire - 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah, from incredibly low yields and aged all in concrete - yields classy aromas of black currant, crushed stone, graphite, spice, and spring flowers on the nose. Slow to unwind (I followed the bottle for multiple days), this possesses a medium to full-bodied, powerful, yet elegant texture with very polished tannin, solid mid-palate concentration, and a classically styled, clean, dry finish. Whereas the l'Argile is ready to go now, I think this will benefit from 1-2 years of bottle age, and drink well for a decade or longer. Superb stuff and this estate needs to be on every southern Rhone lover's radar." 94 points - Jeb Dunnuck - Rhone Report
"Still fleshy, though the dark plum and blackberry notes are moving to the background, while lightly charry mesquite, incense, black tea and mulled spice notes take over. The finish is weighty, but has range and definition. Grenache and Syrah. Drink now. 100 cases imported. -JM" 90 points Wine Spectator
"Le Barroux is a small Provencal town located in the heart of the Vaucluse. Its twelfth century castle overhangs the stone-built village houses and picturesque alleys. In between the two famous mountains, the Mont Ventoux and the Dentelles de Montmirail, le Barroux is renowned as being an excellent tourist site, providing a magnificent scenic point of view. Nature surrounds the village, forests and fruit trees, intermingled with vines which paint a varying landscape of changing colors. The small estate vineyardsof Saint Jean du Barroux extend over 15 hectares of the hillside, at an elevation of between 300 to 400 meters. It consists of 11 hectares of vines and 4 hectares of fruit trees and forest, on alternating terraces and slopes. Owner and winemaker Philippe Gimel is the heart and soul of this tiny project, working the vineyards by hand in harmony with the environment." -Importer
2008 COLLIERE RASTEAU
"The 2008 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Rasteau exhibits more density as well as a deeper ruby/purple color, and a sumptuous bouquet of black raspberries, black cherries, white chocolate, and pepper, sweet tannin, and none of the rusticity or overbearing body and power of a Rasteau. It should drink nicely for 5-8 years." 88-91 points Robert Parker
"Domaine la Colliere is a small family estate founded by Georges Perrot. He began bottling his own wine in 2003, renting some cellar space from the mad king of Rasteau, Andre Romero of Domaine Soumade fame. Prior to 2003 all the juice went to one of the big negociants. Reknown Rhone enologist Philippe Cambie consults on the project, which is already receiving rave reviews from the press."
"Vineyards: An assembly of parcels in Rasteau, with an average yield of 38 hl/ha. Farming: Lutte Raisonnee. Age of Vines: 60-80 years old. Aging: Aged in cuve beton (concrete)." -Importer
