Welcome to La Madelene : Rhone Wine Holidays

Decanter chooses its top value Rhones

stgayan3.jpgoratoire_dom_st__martin_cairanne.jpgjanesse.jpgThat tireless Rhone taster and author John Livingstone-Learmouth selects his best value Rhone wines in the February issue of Decanter ( www.decanter.com) Magazine. Pleasingly our tastes coincide: amongst the 10 wines that he highlights 8 are from the Southern Rhone and these include some of our absolute favorites, regulars on the dinner table here at La Madelene: Domaine St.Gayan Gigondas ( their Rasteau is top notch too);Domaine de la Janesse Cotes du Rhone “Terre Argiles” ( raved about by me in a previous blog note); Domaine Oratoire St.Martin at Cairanne ( the best Cairanne?) and Chaume-Arnaud at Vinsobres - John name checks their entry level red, for my money their white is even better. John’s full tasting notes are at www.drinkrhone.com
