Three Ripe Rhone Reds from Wine Direct

12-Oct-2012
Alastair Pope and Ryan Quinn of Wine Direct import an excellent selection of some of the most user friendly and accessibly priced wines as well as an array of the some of the world's best and most expensive. They've recognised the quality and value of the wines from Southern Rhone as winners for wine enthusiasts. Michel Gassier Gassier is one of their picks as suppliers. Based at Costieres di Nimes, the southernmost growing district of the Rhone, and regarded as part of the Languedoc, Gassier owns the 70 ha Chateau de Nages, which forms part of a large portfolio of quality wines. Domaine de la Mordoree is a highly-regarded organic Rhone producer based at Lirac with 55 ha with a new-wave and very modern outlook. The Chateauneuf-du-Pape ‘Cuvee Reine des Bois' is arguably the flagship. www.winedirect.co.nz
