I had one bottle of the 1998 vintage which we opened at a restaurant on a Friday evening last spring. It absolutely reeked of barnyard and was completely undrinkable. It sat in a decanter all night long and never became approachable. I poured the wine back in the bottle and took it home, and enjoyed a very nice wine 2 days later after the aromas of rotting vegetation and animal poop blew off.

Moral of the story is that Marcoux is a very traditional producer and you might have to make some allowances for that. Banana
So far I have gotten the following wines...

Cuvee Papet Clos du Mont Olivet
Domaine De Giraud Tradition
Domaine De La Janasse Chaupin
Domaine De La Janasse VV
Domaine Grand Veneur Les Origines
Domaine Pierre Usseglio Cuvee de mon Aieul
Domaine Pierre Usseglio Domaine Raymond Cuvee Imperiale

Domaine St.-Préfert Collection Charles Giraud
Domaine Tour Saint Michel Feminessance
Le Vieux Donjon

Futures ...
Domaine Giraud Les Gallimardes
Boisrenard Beaurenard
Clos des Papes
Chateau De Beaucastel
Vieux Telegraphe

Most likely will also get some Charvin

I have been thinking about the Boisrenard Beaurenard lately. Have you had a taste yet?
Despite promising myself that I was going to resist buying any more young wines, I found a couple 2010 Rhones that were just too hard to turn away:

- Beaurenard Boisrenard X12
- Donjon X5

That will be it.

Jonanator, the Boisrenard is powerful, with superb, delicious fruit.

The 2010 is just starting to arrive in the US, so no, I have not tasted it yet.
I picked up a case of Beaucastel and almost 2 cases of the Donjon. I am still waiting for the Telegraphe and I passed on the Clos des Pape because it was just too much money at this point in my collecting life. I'll keep my eyes peeled for others that make their way into BC.

This is my first experience of RP's affect on the wine I buy.

Looking forward to drinking this in 10+ years


Has anyone tried the Chante le Merle? Worth the hype? or is it another parker dud?
A mix of older and newer styles, I enjoy both, and some pure Grenache.

Call me a point whore but I picked up some Domaine Saint Préfert Châteauneuf-du-Pape Collection Charles Giraud and some Réserve Auguste Favier. Trying to find some Beaurenard Boisrenard right now. Heard too many good things about it to not pick some up. I'm really tempted by the Bosquet des Pape Chante le Merle as well, but the price has gone up to ~$73CDN/btl up here.

What kind of prices are you guys paying for the Usseglio Cuvée de mon Aïeul?

Where in Canada are you? Most of these wines make it into BC, but you need to act quickly, because in some cases, they are gone in a day. I have developed a good relationship with some of the product consultants at the BCLDB and they send me an email when something interesting comes in.

I'm in Alberta. I've missed out on a few producers, but I've been talking to a distributor lately that has some interesting stuff coming in so at the end of the day, I might just end up with too much which seems to happen far too often Bang

So, basically, for the most part, y'all buying the same wines as previous CdP vintages. Same old. Anything new?


The new one I picked up half a case of was
Château de Vaudieu Châteauneuf-du-Pape Amiral G

Has anyone tried this yet?
