I think duck confit works fine with Reynaud's wines.

I had the 08 in 2018. I cannot remember the food because I completely dissappeared in the wine.
It is amazing. I challenge anyone to find a better 08 in Southern Rhone.

Re: The 100 point scale is pretty useless.

The same wine can get 98 points from one critic and 89 from another Both using the 15 points Parker system This might be true (but I wouldn't remember to see such a big difference ever). But that does not mean the scale or the scoring is somehow flawed. Just the the two critics have different taste...

Hi Jeff, To me, Allemand are the most enjoyable of all the Northern Rhones. You actually pay less for more (I don't know if that makes sense).
