2020 Jean-Baptiste Souillard, Marsanne, Vin de France (Ardèche) $27.99 bottle / $159.00($26.50) per six-pack
Marsanne is the noble varietal that is the backbone of Hermitage Blanc (Chave’s Hermitage Blanc is 80%-85% Marsanne). This Marsanne is sourced from a high altitude east-facing vineyard on limestone and Jean-Baptiste’s tendency to pick just before the grapes over-ripen makes it’s incredibly fresh. Heady aromas of brioche, apricot and peach explode from the glass. The medium-full-bodied palate is both nervy and rich with excellent balance between the lush fruit and the refreshing acidity. The rich and delicious palate offers ripe nectarine and peach fruit with a tantalizing hint of grilled pineapple supported by balancing acidity and an underlying vein of minerality.  Satisfying now, but primed for further development over the next five years.

2017 Jean-Baptiste Souillard, Crozes-Hermitage BLANC, Le Tout $49.99 bottle / $282.00($47.00) per six-pack
This is Marsanne from a very steep vineyard planted in the 1930s on pure limestone. With a beautiful yellow color, the nose offers kaleidoscopic complexity with aromas of blood orange, crème patisserie and bees wax. This wine is at once both more powerful and structured than the above Marsanne from the Ardèche while also being more restrained and precise. The volume is turned down a notch on the orchard fruit and up on the mineral notes and structure. This is first class Northern Rhone white that sells for a fraction of what its competition at this level does.

2020 Jean-Baptiste Souillard, Saint-Péray (BLANC), Chalboud $49.99 bottle / $282.00($47.00) per six-pack
100% Marsanne from a tiny vineyard (less than half an acre) on granitic soil at almost 1500 feet elevation. A wonderful expression of both Marsanne fruit and terroir. The nose starts out tight before opening up with aeration in the glass to reveal aromas of baked peaches, apricots and stoney minerals.  The palate is rich and expansive without being heavy while offering a broad stroke of mineral, apricot, Meyer lemon and roasted almonds. Terrific on its own, this wine is extremely versatile at the table.

2020 Jean-Baptiste Souillard, Crozes-Hermitage, Tenay $49.99 bottle / $282.00($47.00) per six-pack
Aromatic fireworks! Very floral with violets, and pure Syrah fruit with a “wild” note. As far as northern Rhone Syrah goes, this wine has it all. The palate offers vibrant fruit with a real sense of freshness that saddles up perfectly to the strong mineral cut. While delicious already, this wine has the structure to improve for 10-15 years in a cool cellar.  A model of Syrah finesse, refinement and elegance. Yes!

2020 Jean-Baptiste Souillard, Saint Joseph Rouge, Janoune $49.99 bottle / $282.00($47.00) per six-pack
This is the only red in the lineup that doesn’t see whole cluster during fermentation. By this point, you know the drill -high elevation and granite “soils” in a cool site relative to the appellation. The nose is very pure with floral notes aside a hint of smoke and mineral earthiness. Pretty blueberry fruit complements a smokey-mineral earthiness. This will only unfold and gain in complexity with time. Drink through 2040.

2020 Jean-Baptiste Souillard, Cote-Rotie, Tartaras $89.99 bottle / $510.00($85.00) per six-pack
Finding great traditionally made Cote-Rotie at a good price is almost unheard of, but Souillard’s 2020 Cote-Rotie Tartaras is just such a wine. Initially tight, the nose reluctantly reveals aromatics that are at once both floral and gamey. The beguiling aromatics segue to a palate that is both incredibly intense and elegant with raspberry and plum fruit, earth, game notes, a strong mineral core and plenty of structure ensuring a long, graceful evolution in your cool cellar. This really needs time, like a great classic Cote-Rotie should. Drink 2028 - 2050.

2020 Jean-Baptiste Souillard, Cornas, Saint Pierre $89.99 bottle / $510.00($85.00) per six-pack
At over 1300 feet elevation, Saint Pierre is one of the coolest sites in the Cornas appellation which works perfectly in modern warm vintages. Saint Pierre is also an incredibly steep site on pure granite “soil.” As you would expect from a young Cornas, the nose is initially tight, but showing glimpses of violets, iron, dusty blackberries and a hint of wild game in the background - hell yeah! The palate is quite intense with lots of tannic structure, good acidity for freshness and incredible balance. While the seductive blueberry and blackberry fruit come to the forefront, it’s the wine’s strong core of minerality and earth-driven nature that take center stage. Classic savage Cornas. Drink 2029 - 2050. Drink 2029 - 2050.

2016 Dom. Jean-Pierre Gaussen, Bandol Rouge, Longue Garde, Provence, France $39.99 / $221.94($36.99) Six-pack
Geek Alert: Fans of old-school Bandol take note - this is the real deal.  This is not one of those gussied up, lipstick sporting glossy juice-ball Bandols.  The 2016 Gaussen Bandol Rouge offers an ethereal nose and the promise of greatness with some additional bottle age.  The palate is tight, structured and balanced with a little dark fruit surrounded by notes of herbs de Provence, leather, a little wild game and a strong soil signature.  In time, this will become the perfect food partner with cassoulet, garlicky lamb dishes and the like.  Enjoy now with hearty fare, or better yet, through 2025-2040 for additional complexity. Awesome Bandol.
