Tasted & Recommended - Rhône

I developed a close attachment to Rhône wines as an importer and retailer, and I have visited the region regularly for a very long time to taste the new vintage. On this page you will find my notes and comments for wines I have tasted recently that I think deserve recognition. Please consult the Tasting Notes & Ratings page for an explanation of my five-tier ranking system. I use the * symbol after the name of the wine, sometimes adding a + to signify higher quality, or (*) to indicate potential quality after further aging.

I attended the Découvertes in March 2015. Here are my tasting notes for the wines of the Northern Rhône. The next report will cover all the Southern Rhône appellations.
