Rhône AMA with buyer Marcel Orford-Williams!

A follow up to the earlier Hermitage Grael question - given that the recent price rise puts it not far off La Chapelle, which would you choose and why?


#42

Apart from the regions mentioned, I like Italian wine and Greek wine too.


#43

They’re both very different. Chapelle is finer, always, and Sorrel is more rustic, always - different styles, but quality levels are about as good. If I had to choose, in the long term Chapelle is probably the winner - the fruit is better.


#44

Well, I think this breaks the record for the most AMA questions we’ve answered in an hour - I’m so grateful to @owmarcel for giving us such brilliant insight. But I’m a bit scared for my post-Rhône EP bank balance now…

3 mins left - time for maybe one more question - otherwise I hope you’ve all enjoyed this AMA and there’s plenty of reading to come back to here! :smile:

What does one have to do to go on a buying trip with Marcel ?? :rofl:


#46

You’ve got to ask the boss!


#47

Hi Marcel, could you please let us know what the current plans are for the Exhibition label Rhone wines? In terms of new additions, Hermitage vintages etc.


#48

Fantastic AMA - and thanks for taking the time, Marcel! So much to take in…! :smiley:


#49

Nothing new I can tell you quite yet, but something very exciting is coming soon…! There will also be some older vintages of Hermitage red being released.


#50

Thanks everyone! Buy lots.


#51

And with that, he’s gone!

Spanner in the works, thrown…

Great AMA, many thanks @owmarcel


#54

It doesn’t help with mine - I now want to double the amount and I’m already over budget! :see_no_evil: :joy:


#55

I thought it’s mostly all gone!


#56

Very informative session, thanks Marcel! Thanks to the community for the questions!


#57

Excellent session. I’ve had a quick read through but must do a more thorough one taking notes!


#58

Very interesting. Thanks Marcel.
