The Best Wine of the World Andreas Larsson speaks about Rhone Valley wines
“The Rhone Valley is not only a vast region, it´s truly a dynamic world leader where traditional, elegant styles works well next to the modern, young and vibrant wines. Apart from the famous appellations like Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas and Vacqueyras there´s such a wealth of both value for money, and great quality within the generic Côtes du Rhône and Côtes du Rhône Villages category. Wines that have what I call a classic French charm and food-friendliness with good drinkability already in their youth but also a fine potential to develop complexity and harmony from further cellaring. ”
Tasting in blind conditions takes on its full meaning when you are looking for the best wine of the world.
