A virtual Northern Rhone tasting last night with w+a, VinT and bman. A few other forumites joined the festivities a bit later including otw, gman, bomba, xhoser and basecadet.
My contribution: 2011 M. Chapoutier Le Meal Blanc
Deep golden honey colour. Delicious and beautifully balanced. Honeydew melon, pear, vanilla, almond paste, and a judicious level of waxiness.
Sounds great. I have a bottle each of the 2010 and 2012 so you're tempting me to open one. I should have joined in on the tasting.
