E. Guigal 'Rose' Cotes du Rhone 2014
90  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 90 " One of the best roses is Guigal's 2014 Cotes du Rhone Rose, which checks in as a blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Cinsault and 10% Syrah. Sporting a lighter raspberry color (this cuvee normally has a slightly darker color), it gives up lots of sweet cherry, strawberry, honeysuckle and

Domaine Charvin Chateauneuf Du Pape 2012
93  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 93 "The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape came across as classic and very traditional on this showing, with a firm, structured feel that will benefit from short term cellaring. Offering up notes of kirsch, Asian spice, licorice and ground herbs, it has bright acidity, solid concentration and
