Matt Walls’ top 10 fine wines of 2019

Matt Walls reminisces on a year of wine events and tastings and picks his top wines from across the Rhône...

In 2019, I have left no galet roulé unturned. Terroir jokes aside, by Christmas I will have visited 40 appellations in the Southern Rhône. From big names like Châteauneuf-du-Pape, to tiny Côtes-du-Rhône-Villages such as Saint-Pantaléon-Les-Vignes, and calling in at esoteric satellite appellations such as Clairette de Bellegarde on the way – I’ve been everywhere!
