Southern Rhône Report - Josh Raynolds


According to Josh Raynolds in Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar,"The southern Rhône's winning streak continued through the generally outstanding 2010 vintage, with some estates having produced the best wines I've yet tasted from them." For Valkyrie Selections, we are happy to report that several of our producers - Château Husson, Château de Vaudieu, and Domaine des Bosquets - were included among Josh's Recommended Producers. Of course we anxiously await the arrival of the 2010s later this year, but in the meantime, we have some mighty fine oh-nine available now (and 2010s from Cotes du Rhône and Lirac from above mentioned producers!).

Château Husson Châteauneuf-du-Pape “Les Saumades” 2009 - 90 points
Domaine des Bosquets Gigondas 2009 - 91 points
Château Vaudieu Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2010 - 90-92 points
