Walls: the best Rhône wines to buy in the UK right now

In advance of his Rhône 2021 en primeur report, Matt Walls recommends a selection of Rhône wines available to buy now from independent UK retailers Lea & Sandeman, Yapp Brothers and Davy's.

In the UK wine calendar, wine merchants concentrate on selling certain regions at the same time every year. For Burgundy, it’s January; Bordeaux starts in April. Others, like the Rhône, aren’t quite so specific, but merchants do seem to agree that autumn is the right time to turn their attention to this part of France.

Following a number of Rhône-focused tastings, and with my full report on the 2021s coming out soon, I have tasted and rated wines that are available to buy in the UK now and my recommendations are below.
