Decanter article: The New World of the Northern Rhône

I contributed an article to the recent Decanter Rhône Special (July 2014 issue) on Crozes-Hermitage – they’ve since published it online, you can read it here.

I was also on the panel judging a hundred Côtes-du-Rhône-Villages in the same issue – one wine just squeaked into the ‘outstanding’ category: Domaine Les Grands Bois ‘Cuvée Maximilien’ Cairanne 2012. Cairanne 2012s in general are well worth snapping up. The more 2012s I taste throughout the whole of the Rhône in fact, the more I like it.
