Description:

‘One to match the best years of the 20th Century in the Northern Rhône,’ writes John Livingstone-Learmonth. In the Rhône, 2015 was the hottest vintage since 2003, although it was not nearly as punishing. After a wet winter, the water table was ready for the hot, dry summer that was ‘almost too perfect’. The nights were fairly fresh, especially in the north, which helped retain flavour and colour. The resulting wines are rich and exotic.

Taste 14 top wines from 7 appellations including wines from Graillot, Perret, Chapoutier, Grand Veneur, Verzier, Clape and Jamet! Rhone lovers should not miss this!
