Côtes-du-Rhône, Coudoulet de Beaucastel Rouge 2017

The vines may fall outside the official Châteauneuf boundary, but the style is the same, and very much in keeping with Beaucastel’s signature, with its large proportion of the mourvèdre grape. There is also an old variety of cinsault which adds a note of finesse to this rich and dense vintage. Drink from 2020 to 2028. 14%

RH51421 Bottles6 Price£70.00 Type

Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Terre d'Argile, Domaine de la Janasse 2017

RH52701 Bottles6 Price£70.00 Type

Côtes du Rhône Rouge, Quartz, Clos du Caillou 2017

Neighbouring Rayas, Clos du Caillou has two peculiarities. It has vines that are both inside and just out of the Châteauneuf appellation and has underground cellars. The wine has weight and sweetness of flavour and considerable finesse. Drink from 2022 to 2029. 14.5%

RH53431 Bottles6 Price£82.00 Type

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Tradition, Domaine la Boutinière 2017

A great-value Châteauneuf-du-Pape in a superb vintage for the region. There is everything here: bright spicy fruit, almost fruitcake-like notes, complexity, finesse and length. Drink from 2020 to 2029. 14.5%

RH53301 Bottles6 Price£87.00 Type

Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Château Mont-Redon 2017

This estate has shot up in quality over the last few years and 2017 is another fine vintage at Mont-Redon, with great density of ripe, black fruit, plum and spice. Drink from 2022 to 2034. 14.5% Magnums (RH52724 @ £187 per six) available.

RH52721 Bottles6 Price£92.00 Type

RH52731 Bottles6 Price£110.00 Type

Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Le Bosquet des Papes 2017

Full, spicy and quite splendid, this is an old-school style of Châteauneuf. A generous helping of old-vine grenache adds extra weight and concentration to this dark, spicy and long-flavoured blend. Drink from 2022 to 2029. 15%

RH52751 Bottles6 Price£112.00 Type

Côtes-du-Rhône Réserve, Clos du Caillou 2017

Another wine that is Châteauneuf-du-Pape in all but name; yet this one would have been had the family not been opposed to the creation of the appellation back in 1936! Very ripe, spicy and very full-bodied. Drink from 2022 to 2030. 15%

RH52691 Bottles6 Price£115.00 Type

Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Crau de Ma Mère, Mayard 2017

Françoise Mayard makes the excellent Society’s Exhibition Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This, also from the Mayard family estate, comes from older vines and includes grapes that come from the fabled La Crau plateau. Glorious in 2017. Drink from 2021 to 2030. 14.5%

RH52771 Bottles6 Price£122.00 Type

Côtes-du-Rhône Les Garrigues, Domaine de la Janasse 2017

A tiny crop in 2017, meaning that this 100% grenache is very full, richly flavoured, heady and concentrated. Drink from 2023 to 2033. 14%

RH52741 Bottles6 Price£130.00 Type

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Tradition, Domaine Giraud 2017

Marie Giraud pretty well nailed her 2017s. 100-year-old grenache vines are at the heart of this estate, and this wine combines undoubted power with a certain elegance and freshness. Drink from 2022 to 2030. 14.5%

RH52761 Bottles6 Price£147.00 Type

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Mourre des Perdrix, Domaine de Charbonnière 2017

An outstanding vintage for Mourre des Perdrix. The eponymous vineyard is just below the more famous La Crau, but on mainly sandy soils and owned entirely by this rejuvenated estate. A blend of 60% grenache, 20% syrah and 20% mourvèdre, this has lots of weight but also ripe, soft tannins – almost caressing! Drink from 2022 to 2033. 15%

RH52781 Bottles6 Price£155.00 Type

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Piedlong, Brunier 2017

Piedlong is on sandy soils so the wines are marked by elegance and round textures. Dominated by 90% grenache with mourvèdre making up the remaining 10%, this is a relatively pale-coloured wine (due to the absence of syrah). Nevertheless, it’s a powerful and concentrated statement in 2017. Drink from 2022 to 2031. 14.5%

RH52791 Bottles6 Price£155.00 Type

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Le Bois Pointu, Blagden and Gonnet 2017

Yorkshire and Provence combine in a fantastic joint effort! The vines are tended by Charles Blagden and the wine made by Guillaume Gonnet of Font de Michelle. They include an unusually high amount of the counoise grape in this blend, together with mourvèdre which gives the wine lift and elegance. Drink from 2022 to 2032. 14.5%

RH52811 Bottles6 Price£225.00 Type

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Quartz, Clos du Caillou 2017

Wonderfully fragrant with dark fruit, kirsch, spice and herbs, this is nevertheless still quite tight and in need of time in bottle. The use of 15% syrah in this cuvée deepens the colour and accentuates the sense of structure. More backward in style than Clos du Caillou’s Réserve wine. Drink from 2024 to 2031. 14.5%

RH52821 Bottles6 Price£225.00 Type

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Chaupin, Domaine de la Janasse 2017

A ripe, figgy and plummy wine, nearly 100% grenache from north-facing slopes on the sandier parts of La Crau, resulting in a very fat and richly flavoured Châteauneuf. Drink from 2023 to 2036. 14.5%

RH52831 Bottles6 Price£250.00 Type

Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Château de Beaucastel 2017

As well as dark-fruit flavours of blackcurrant and cherry, there is a wonderfully deep, richly layered texture in the 2017 Beaucastel which at this early stage reminded me of the great 2007. Drink from 2025 to 2040. 14% Magnums (RH51364 @ £502 per six) available.

RH51361 Bottles6 Price£250.00 Type

Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe 2017

Only half a crop in 2017 due to drought, this is a concentrated and weighty Vieux Télégraphe with tannins that are present but not aggressively so. A very accomplished vintage. Drink from 2024 to 2039. 15% Halves (RH51612 @ £279 per dozen) available.

RH51611 Bottles6 Price£275.00 Type

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Barbe Rac, Chapoutier 2017

Chapoutier has been a landowner here for many years, selling under the Bernardine label. This
wine comes from an individual plot of 90-year-old grenache and no oak is used so the flavour is of fruit in abundance. Truly sumptuous in 2017. Drink from 2021 to 2037. 14.5%

RH50931 Bottles6 Price£320.00 Type

Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Clos des Papes 2017

Tiny yields in this vintage have produced a Clos des Papes with plenty of concentration yet with tannins that while present, are ripe and rounded. There is wonderful sweetness of fruit yet a feeling of freshness that leaves the palate wanting more. Drink from 2022 to 2035. 15% Magnums (RH51574 @ £339 per three) available.

RH51571 Bottles6 Price£337.00 Type

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes, Domaine de la Janasse 2017

This is a splendidly rich Châteauneuf in 2017. Fat and long with great intensity of fruit. Drink from 2025 to 2037. 14.5%

RH52841 Bottles6 Price£340.00 Type

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Réserve, Clos du Caillou 2017

A remarkable cuvée of Châteauneuf in a great vintage, made from grenache with a hefty slug of mourvèdre and mostly coming from the area known as Pignan. Black-cherry fruit and full, very rich and weighty yet with wonderful lift. Drink from 2023 to 2038. 15%
