I'm back in France's Rhône Valley to taste the potentially stellar 2009 vintage, concentrating on the Southern Rhône domaines this time (I last visited with Northern Rhône vignerons in March, tasting the 2008 and 2009 vintages). On my first day back I tasted the 2009s from Vieux Télégraphe, F. & D. Brunier, Les Pallières and La Roquète with Daniel Brunier, then spent the afternoon at Domaine Font de Michelle. Today's agenda includes Clos des Papes, Moulin-Tacussel, Domaine Giraud and Roger Sabon.
