Wines of the Rhône Case & Book Offer
A six-pack Rhône masterclass.
Matt Walls has been writing about wine for over a decade, his first book 'Drink Me' sold over 10,000 copies. After moving his family to the Vaucluse for 2 years to research his excellent new 'Wines of the Rhône', he's back in the UK writing for Decanter, Foodism and Club Oenologique. Whatever your motivations for buying the book and bottles combination, you will greatly increase your understanding of this fabulous region by dipping into either, preferably both. Quotes below are all Matt's own – from either Decanter magazine or the book.
"After 50 years, Yapp still has one of the best Rhône selections in the UK."
This mixed case contains one signed copy Matt Walls' book 'Wines of the Rhône' (2021), along with one bottle each of:
Crémant de Die: Domaine Achard-Vincent Brut
"A highly-recommended source of Diois sparkling."
Collines Rhodaniennes: Domaine Georges Vernay 'Le Pied de Samson' 2020
"Winemakers in Côte-Rôtie and Condrieu often make some IGP Viognier and IGP Syrah in order to extend their range. Some examples, such as Domaine Georges Vernay ‘Le Pied de Samson’ Viognier ...are outstanding wines that can easily be mistaken for grander appellations, so for those looking for value in the Northern Rhône, this is the best place to start.”"
Tavel: Domaine Maby 'La Forcadière' 2020
"Medium-bodied, good acidity and vibrancy. Cleansing finish, with a touch of tannic grip. 90/100."
Châteauneuf-du-Pape: Le Vieux Donjon Rouge 2017
"Full bodied but not massive, there's a little touch of raisin to the rich plum fruit. Though very ripe, there's plenty of vibrancy and acidity on the palate... 94/100."
Crozes-Hermitage: Alain Graillot Rouge 2019
"There’s no lack of winemaking talent at this address."
Côte Rôtie: Patrick Jasmin 'La Giroflarie' 2017
"Powerful now, but highly enjoyable; will improve. Try from 2026. 95/100."
