Dauvergne Ranvier Wines
Dauvergne Ranvier is one of the top up-and-coming producers in the Rhône Valley and it was not surprising that so many of you have been asking to see them again here. Your Sommelier is not the only one to believe in their potential. Tim Atkin and Matt Walls, two of the most influential British wine critics, have ranked them number one of the “Top ten producers to watch” in their 2012 Rhône Special Report, which is quite a distinction!
François Dauvergne and Jean-François Ranvier are two winemakers who are passionate by the Rhône Valley. They have a very original approach, as they select grapes in the best parcels of the region to elaborate their wines. They work together with the winegrowers to give the best possible care to the vines, including the manual harvest and a separate grape tasting for each parcel.
Their wines are all aromatic and complex, and are becoming more and more sought after. They all brilliantly express the different grapes and terroirs they are coming from. Definitely one of the best names in the Rhône Valley, and willing to keep moderate prices!
