Plenty of Goedhuis Rhône wines mentioned in Decanter April 2011…..they have flown off the shelf. You have to be quick off the mark to bag some Burgundy EP but apparently you have to be even faster for the Rhone…

Cornas Vieilles Vignes Domaine Alain Voge *****18.5
Shy nose, crunchy fruit, has scope. Grounded, broad, balanced. Great fruit and outlook. Drink 2014-2028.

Unfortunately, we are sold out of the 09′ but have some 2008 Cornas Vieilles Vignes Domaine Alain Voge in stock.

Hermitage Domaine de Colombier*****18.5
Handsome nose, ripe sweetness, smoke. Generous, well-proportioned; tasty tannins, flamboyant length. Drink 2013-2026.

Hermitage Bernard Faurie*****18.5
Ripely curved bouquet. solid palate, more fine than robust, with grip and lithe notes. Drink 2014-2027.

We are out of the 2009 in this also now but have some 2008 Hermitage Domaine du Colombier in.

Fine But Rare:
Côte Rôtie Belle Hélène Michel and Stéphane Ogier****18 All gone :(
Abundant fruit nose of red cherry. Tight-knit palate showing variety with complexity to come. No hurry to drink this. Drink 2014-2028.
