Dulwich Wine Society tasting. Ten wines from the Southern Rhône, eight red and two white. For me, the stand out wines include the extremely pure and fruity Côtes du Rhône from Domaine de la Charité, Domaine de Mourchon's mature and mellow 1999 Séguret and the Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2007 Blanc from Domaine de Cristia which came as a refreshing, fruity finale after all the rich reds.
