Rhône Valley’s Historic 2015 and 2016 Vintages with Michael Franz

2 hours • $85

Truly great vintages don’t often occur back-to-back, but that’s exactly what happened in France’s Rhône Valley in 2015 and 2016.  And the good news doesn’t end there:  The two growing seasons produced superb wines in the very different northern and southern Rhône regions, and likewise turned out excellent results among both reds and whites.  To make the wines even more interesting, they show notable differences in style, with the 2015s showing a bit more ripeness, whereas the ‘16s are a bit fresher and more elegant.  Regardless of personal preference, these two stunning vintages offer something for everyone to love, so be among those who survey their excellence…before their richly deserved, lofty reputation clears them from store shelves.
