Returning to the Rhône for Syrah's Northern Lights

Back in France's Rhône Valley, to taste the 2012 vintage and more

Posted: November 4, 2013  By James Molesworth

It's time. Time to head back to the Rhône. It's been a little while since my last trip in June 2012. Prior to that, I worked my way through the Northern Rhône in April 2011. So I wonder: Could I be rusty? Nah, I doubt it ...

My current annual Rhône report is in the Nov. 30 issue and it focuses on the 2011 vintage, now on retail shelves in the U.S. There will be plenty more 2011s to taste, but I am also beginning to turn my attention to 2012, which is the vintage I will be tasting during this trip (though sometimes producers will show other vintages as well.)
