Gruaud’s fortunes began to rise in spring 2010 when Robert Parker awarded its 2009 vintage 95 points.

Nonetheless it rose somewhat under the radar, escaping bigger headlines such as the rise and fall of Lafite.

However, its success is not unique among Left Bank properties. The dramatic undulations of the first growths and their second wines and the rise of the Right Banks have provided sexier headlines...

Who Are Wine Counterfeiters Fooling? (A Lot of Folks)

Who Are Wine Counterfeiters Fooling? (A Lot of Folks) | Vitabella Wine Daily Gossip | Scoop.it

More than five years ago, Burgundy's Laurent Ponsot put the brakes on an Acker Merrall & Condit wine auction of more than 100 dubious "old" bottles of Domaine Ponsot, valued at more than a half-million dollars. I remember my reaction well, like a kid in a classroom relishing in the apprehension of a cheater: "Ooooooohh … Busted!!!"

Northern Rhône Wine Dispatches: Dial M For Hermitage (Wine Spectator) | Vitabella Wine Daily Gossip | Scoop.it

The 2012 Ermitage White L'Ermite is a stunner, with laserlike focus, a pronounced chamomile and quinine spine that keeps the core of white peach, blanched almond, honeysuckle, Meyer lemon zest and chartreuse notes tightly coiled for now. The finish is ridiculously long.

Guigal: “quality is astonishing from 2013”

Guigal: “quality is astonishing from 2013” | Vitabella Wine Daily Gossip | Scoop.it
Philippe Guigal has described this year’s fruit from the northern Rhône as “astonishing” in quality, in sharp contrast to reports of a problematic vintage in the southern part of the valley and elsewhere in France. Similarly, Maison M Chapoutier wrote in a vintage report that Grenache in the southern Rhône was “heavily affected” by coulure due to unusually cool temperatures during flowering in May, while thundery weather in July and a fairly dry August led to a “slower rate of growth and ripeness”.

P.Guigal: "For me, Viognier is better young. The Condrieu peaks at six months after bottling and holds for 2 to 3 years. After that it becomes another wine, which is not our philosophy"

This is the estate by which most Americans are introduced to the Northern Rhône, and many stay faithful to it thereafter, with good reason. It's not only the biggest player in Côte-Rôtie, but among the biggest in the Rhône, as well as being among the best. This is a regular stop on my visits through the region, so you can reference numerous past blogs, starting with my notes from my 2011 visit here.
