Domaine Aphillanthes

Domaine Les Aphillanthes is a rising star of the southern Rhône. Proprietor Daniel Boulle, together with his wide Helene, has been tending his vines for many years, and until recently he was happy to sell his produce to the local co-operative. Fortunately for those of us who appreciate the wines of the Rhône, however, Daniel Boulle's friends rightly saw that his fruit was of superb quality, and deserved to be bottled as it stood, rather than absorbed into the wines of the local co-op. So Domaine Les Aphillanthes was born.

R Parker: "spectacularly powerful, concentrated...comparable to the finest Gigondas and Châteauneuf du Papes"
