2015 Southern Rhone - "…a beautiful vintage for Southern Rhône lovers…”

As a vintage, 2015 is a welcome return to more consistent and favourable climatic conditions, after a pair of tricky vintages in 2014 and 2013. Jeb Dunnuck, the Wine Advocate’s Rhône expert, says that “…the quality is incredibly high across all of the appellations, and even across all varieties, which is uncommon.”

Having separately offered the excellent range of wines from Château de Beaucastel, today we look at some of the other fabulous producers from this very special region.

These wines are offered En Primeur and will be available for delivery mid-late 2017



Domaine Roger Sabon

Despite being one of the great names of the region, Roger Sabon’s holdings are actually quite small. When young, these wines are powerhouses but, given time, they develop into more elegant offerings. The Cuvée Reservée has to be one of the best value wines in this offer and the Secret de Sabon has a fanatical following.

Le Vieux Télégraphe

One of the most recognisable names in the region, Le Vieux Télégraphe built their fame on making honest, well balanced wine with little intervention that reflects the vintage and the land. Classic is often a word associated with their interpretation of Châteauneuf and these are wines that tend to age extremely well.
