Critic Notes

The 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape les Grenaches de Pierre offers the sexy, forward style of the vintage, yet backs it up with beautiful purity, terrific concentration and ample sweet tannin. Showing plenty of black raspberry, cassis and licorice along with loads of Provencal herbs and flowers, it’s hard to resist now, but will continue to shine through 2026.

A visit from Domaines Barons de Rothschild
This week we were honoured to host our long standing partner Domaines Barons de Rothschild's commercial director Jean-Sebastien Philippe for a very special tasting....

The King of the Southern Rhone
