The Spring/Summer print edition of Club Oenologique is out now – with a look at the influence of the Rhône Valley. From the pure, unspoilt Syrah of Cornas to the heady blend of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the Rhône has many faces. Oft maligned, sometimes misunderstood, this bastion of French wine holds untold allure for its devotees. We explore its appeal today and its legacy further afield – from California to Australia – with insights from the likes of Oz Clarke, Simon Field MW, Natasha Hughes MW and John Livingstone-Learmonth.

On the spirits side, we consider the ever-increasing array of single malts around the world, from England to India, Australia to Scandinavia; we document Scotland’s new generation of boutique distilleries gaining a cult following; and we chronicle the start-up that has, in less than 15 years, become the curator of some of the world’s rarest – and finest – liquids.

Meanwhile, our lifestyle section sees us travelling around South Africa and Prosecco, while George Reynolds asks if we’ve seen the end of the tasting menu and Victoria Moore questions what makes collectors ­– be it of cars, coins or wine – tick.
