Miscellaneous Northern Rhônes V: Allemand, Accoles/Leriche, Entrefaux/Tardy, Faury, Ferme des Sept Lunes/Delobre, and Gonon

At their best, 2012, 2013, and 2014 are strong vintages, but there is inconsistency and one has to be careful in selecting, even from some of the best names. 2014 has gotten a bad reputation because there was some rain; it may make the wines a little less powerful than those of the other two vintages, but the best of them make up for it with remarkable precision.
