When I travel through the Rhône and visit domaines, it's not uncommon for the vignerons I meet to also pour me wines from related domaines, or for them to give me sneak peeks at new domaines that are just starting up. Because I haven't visited these domaines personally or met with the vignerons directly, I prefer to group my brief notes on the wines here in this one post. If, down the road, they develop a track record of quality based on the official tastings I do in my New York office, I will certainly then try and visit them and report in greater detail on their efforts, as I did in my blog posts from my just-completed trip.
