Critic Notes

Even better, yet with only a minuscule amount made, the 2011 Cotes du Rhone les Garrigues is 100% Grenache, aged all in foudre, that comes from the same region as the Terre d’Argile. Loaded with strawberry, garrigue, roasted meats and mulled spices, it is medium to full-bodied, seriously endowed and gorgeously textured. Despite dishing out loads of fruit and texture, it remains remarkably fresh and elegant. Don’t miss a chance to latch onto a couple bottles if you can. Drink now-2018. Oct 2013, www.robertparker.com

Score: 92-/100Jeb Dunnuck

Another killer wine, although little was made because of some problems with the Grenache crop, is the 2011 Cotes du Rhone Les Garrigues (only 250 cases produced). In many vintages, this is one of France’s finest Cotes du Rhones. The 2011 exhibits terrific fruit as well as classic notes of loamy, sandy soil, balsam wood, kirsch, lavender and roasted Provencal herbs. It should be consumed over the next 2-3 years. Drink: 2012 - 2015. Wine Advocate #203 Oct 2012

The Northern and Southern Rhone are joined by the synonymous river, a spot of Syrah in Chateauneuf du Pape blends and, to be honest, little else. In the north, the Rhone is one of the most impressive stretches of water one will see: a truly grand river.  By the time it gets to Chateauneuf it is more dual-carriageway than multi-lane ...

Joseph Colin - The new Domaine on the Cote de Beaune Block
The family name Colin is a hard one to escape in the Cote de Beaune, with a handful of prolific producers dotted around Saint Aubin, Puligny and Chassagne Montrachet all sharing the name. Consumers could be forgiven for getting a little confused over which one is which! We caught up with Joseph Colin, the newest Colin to go solo, following ...

The King of the Southern Rhone
“For nearly 20 years I have been advocating the best wines of this appellation as something of an insider’s secret – decadent, hedonistic, complex and full wines that are frightfully under-priced and underestimated.” Robert Parker, Wines of the Rhone Valley 1987 While the wines of the Rhone may not be so much of an ‘insiders secret’ anymore, the top wines of ...

A Taste of The Northern Rhone
The northern and southern Rhone, from a vinous point of view, are essentially two quite different regions with a shared name. Some weeks back we covered the southern Rhone in a previous workshop, via its King: Chateauneuf du Pape.  We ended last week with a workshop on the north. This 40-mile stretch of steep, sloped granite hillsides is one of ...

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.... It is not every day that one has the opportunity to taste a line up of wines from all of DBR's Bordeaux properties; in fact even individual tastings rarely take place outside of Bordeaux, so we ...
