I'm back in France's Rhône Valley to taste the potentially stellar 2009 vintage, concentrating on the Southern Rhône domaines this time. Today I tasted the 2009s of the three labels currently charged by Marc Perrin and his family, including Château de Beaucastel. I also visited Domaine de Marcoux and Domaine de Villeneuve, but I started the day at Château de Montfaucon, where a mighty blend is in the cellar.
