Join us for a special single-evening fine wine tasting of 6 fantastic wines from the Northern Rhône on Friday 27th November 2020 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm.
The Northern Rhône with Jimmy Smith
Join wine school founder Jimmy Smith for a wonderful evening exploring the delights of the spectacular Northern Rhône in France. Jimmy has hand-picked six fine wines that showcase the premium nature of this region focussing on Syrah, Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne from a top-notch list of producers. We’ll taste from famous appellations such as Côte Rôtie, Condrieu, Saint-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage and Cornas from producers such as Closel-Roch, Famile Perrin, Pierre Gaillard, Patrick Jasmin, and Johann Michel.
The Northern Rhône may not be the exact birthplace of where the first Syrah vine appeared (it is only about 35 miles Southeast of this region), however it is the benchmark by which all other Syrah wines are measured. Whether or not French Syrah is ‘the best’ is entirely up to you, but one thing is for certain - The Northern Rhône produces Syrah very unlike other regions in terms of style. This is where tradition, geology, topography, aspect amongst many other factors mean that this region is a real special area for premium quality wine.
