Rhône 2013 – UK merchants making offers


Philippa Wright of Goedhuis took this picture of the merchant's array of vintages of Beaucastel and Clos des Papes (the latter's 2008 was much more forthcoming than the former's last night) at Messum's gallery in London's Cork Street in front of Peter Brown's Breton landscape. Any notes on vintages other than 2013 will be added to our database as standalones – JR

Jancis has likened any attempt to co-ordinate Rhône tastings and en primeur offers from UK merchants to herding cats. That would explain why our usual annual list of merchants is a work in progress and constantly being updated. Last year's list might give you some idea of who will be stocking the 2013s but, in the meantime, these are the UK merchants we know are making offers of the 2013s, even if not all of them have yet formalised them. Where the merchants have provided us with a link to their offer, we've included the link below.
