Dear Arthur’s Cellar Wine Club Member:
Sadly, these are the last wines that Sebastien Palon, who was the talented wine maker at Domaine Palon, will craft for us. That is because the Palons were forced to sell the winery due to Sebastien’s ill health. If you would like to find out more, take a look at my article Eulogy for a Winery that appeared in a Gentleman’s Portion blog.
The Domaine Palon Wines on Offer:
We are pleased to offer you these two superb southern Rhônes from Domaine Palon – this time from the excellent but small 2017 vintage - the 2017 Côtes-du-Rhone ‘Cuvée Esparza’ and the white 2017 Vacqueyras ‘Blanc du Bary’. Their red Vacqueyras and Gigondas are not available.
Please let me know if you would like me to place your orders directly with LCBO.com for you.
2017 Côtes du Rhône ‘Cuvée Esparza’ – Domaine Palon – 16.0% Alc./Vol. LCBO Product No. 522929 $19.35 the bottle
2017 Vacqueyras ‘Blanc du Bary’ – Domaine Palon - 13.5% Alc./Vol. LCBO Product No. 523026 $27.20 the bottle
We will soon be off to Provence to meet the new Palon owners and to taste their vinous efforts, including a range of Côtes du Rhône. We’ll also be keeping an eye out for other candidates for Arthur’s Cellar.
Follow My Vinous Adventures on Gentleman’s Portion
I have contributed more than forty posts about my experiences in the wild and wacky world of wine to a delightful lifestyle blog called Gentleman’s Portion. The latest is called Lust Loomed Large at Latour. Please join me and my fellow contributors, Nigel Napier-Andrews and David Moorcroft, as we regale you with a good helping of everything great in life.
It would be most sporting if you would pass this note on to anyone you think might be interested in a couple of very, very good Southern Rhônes.
Many thanks and cheers!
Jim, Hélène and Kate
