The Swedes in action in the Rhone valley


Touring yesterday with Swedes from Stockholm- lots of late vendange action and a fabulous haul of wine bought by my guests that nearly grounded the van! Visits to Chateau Vaudieu ( wonderful new “tulip” concrete fermentation cuves); Mourchon ( as ever with Kate on great form); with Fred Chastan at Jaufrette where stocks of the wonderful 2009 Gigondas are still going strong : and finally with Marilou Vacheron at Clos du Caillou- always a great pleasure.
