Well, I'm off to the Rhône. Again.
It's probably no secret that France's Rhône Valley is my favorite wine region, and so while any trip there is technically work, it's always a little bit of fun too. I feel very much at home whether on the rolling plateau of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, along broad terraces of Gigondas in the southern portion of this region or on the steep slopes of Cornas, Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie in the north.
I'll be covering both the south and north this time, as I'm making just this one trip to the region this year. This time around, I'll be focusing primarily on the 2010s, which are just being bottled, and I might get an early look at some 2011s as well.
