Rh么ne Valley wines are well represented on the 400-plus label list. The emphasis is French, focusing on classic producers as well as rising stars. Even when sourcing a wine from outside of France, it鈥檚 always considered from the French perspective.

鈥淥ur sommeliers are obsessed with the Rh么ne Valley. Rh么ne wines are spectacular, full of ripe fruit with an underlying earthiness that keeps them from being too jammy. Of course, a sommelier is never far from his or her Champagne, and ours are no exception.鈥 鈥擟hef Georges Perrier
