2018 J. Vidal-Fleury  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 90

Loads of olives, garrigue, meat and pepper mix with the layers of red fruits, soft, silky textures and kirsch filled finish. The wine is medium-bodied, elegant, fresh and should drink well on release.

2017 J. Vidal-Fleury  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 92

Medium-bodied, elegant, sweet and fresh, with a core of ripe, soft, polished, red, peppery fruits, the wine is round, supple and fruity, with a ripe black cherry, silky textured finish. The wine blends 85% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre.

2015 J. Vidal-Fleury Brune et Blonde  (Côte-Rôtie) 93

Fresh exotic cherries, peppery spice, smoke and herbs pop almost before being asked. It only gets better on the palate as the wine is silky, fresh, forward and inviting. With loads of peppery zest, this is already showing really well, and it is only going to get better from here.

2015 J. Vidal-Fleury la Chatillonne Côte Blonde  (Côte-Rôtie) 95

The deep, purple color looks great in your glass. And that's just the intro as the nose offers spice box, incense, flowers, smoke and red fruits. The sensual texture has no hard edges, instead it's all about the silky tannins, freshness to the fruits and the peppery edge in the finish.

2015 J. Vidal-Fleury  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 90

I am not sure I have ever seen a Chateauneuf du Pape from Vidal Fleury before. Spicy in character, with incense, sweet red fruits and smoke catches your attention. Medium bodied. fresh and forward, with a nice style, there is sweetness to the red fruits here. This will drink well on release.

2013 J. Vidal-Fleury  (Côtes du Rhône) 85

Light in color and fruit, this is also easy to like, due to its sweet, peppery kirsch charm and soft textures. This is a nice, enjoyable, quaffer, that does not pretend to be anything else.

2012 J. Vidal-Fleury la Chatillonne Côte Blonde  (Côte-Rôtie) 92

Luscious, supple-textured, aromatic and filled with sweet, fresh, ripe, juicy, dark cherries, flowers, smoke, olives and thyme, this is already starting to drink quite well.

2010 J. Vidal-Fleury la Chatillonne Côte Blonde  (Côte-Rôtie) 93

With a beautiful floral nose, made even better with its smoke, earth, wild cherry, blackberry, stone, spice and espresso nose. Silky, polished, lively and fresh, medium/full bodied, with sweetness and purity to the dark red and black fruits that is good now, and will be better with age. For a Cote Rotie of this quality, the wine is priced quite fair, as Cote Rotie is an ever increasingly expensive appellation.

2009 J. Vidal-Fleury la Chatillonne Côte Blonde  (Côte-Rôtie) 93

Young, full bodied, bright, vibrant, crisp red berries, flowers, smoke and licorice are found on the front end. Sweet, lush, concentrated and fresh, with opulent textures, the pure, spicy cherry liqueur in the finish really stands out.

2007 J. Vidal-Fleury Brune et Blonde  (Côte-Rôtie) 87

Medium bodied, fully developed, the wine offers wet earth, pepper, underbrush and bright, red berries. Soft, open and fresh, if you have a bottle, I'd pop a cork over the next couple of years.

2007 J. Vidal-Fleury  (Côtes du Rhône) 86

This charming, crowd pleasing wine is made from a blend of 65% Grenache and other Rhone varietals. Soft, round, sweet, medium bodied, with spicy kirsch in the finish. I'd drink this over the next year or two.

1952 J. Vidal-Fleury  (Hermitage) 85

Fully mature, and then some, yet, even though the wine was clearly hanging on to life by a thread, there was still enough, earthy, spicy, fresh, bright red fruits and herbal notes to be interesting, especially considering its age.
