We decided not to make a Rhone  2011 En Primeur  offer, as we did not feel the vintage warranted it. 2012, however, we are pleased to report, tells a very different story.

"As always travelling in the Rhone valley in early March with the promise of Spring is one my highlights of the travelling year. It is always particularly exciting when the vintage is top drawer and exciting to taste. We have tasted all the wines from the offer and disappointment isn’t an option with some of the wines already offering up enjoyment over the next two or three years while others will require patience. All wines are marked individually with drinking windows. Some old friends are back on the list namely, the exquisite wines of Domaine Roger Sabon and a new recruit, the talented Vincent Paris from Cornas. Quality guaranteed"
(James Nicholson,December 2013)
