Les Deux Cols, Alize, Cotes du Rhone, 2020
The Kildare-based winemaker is Simon Tyrrell, who has a degree in winemaking from Plumpton College in East Sussex, and has been making wine in the Rhône valley for 10 years now. More recently, with several colleagues in Ireland, he bought three hectares of vines in the southern Rhône. Les Deux Cols is Simon Tyrrell’s own wine producing business, run in collaboration with Charles Derain. Established in 2012, this is a hands-on winemaking venture from grape to bottle with the aim being to make the type of wines that reflect their passion for balance, elegance and freshness whilst also expressing the power of the South.
