Product Details

Rhône Vintages

An early harvest has produced some intense wines in 2017 for both the North and the South of the region, though uneven flowering in both has reduced yields considerabley. 2016 looks very promising with both northern and southern Rhône have excellent results, the South has it by a whisker this year, the opposite of 2015. 2015 looks terrific here with no problems reported and decent yields too. An ideal growing season, that was even hotter than 2003 in the daytime but with cooler nights and just enough rainfall to prevent problems in the vineyards. Both whites and reds are reportedly excellent. The North probably has the edge overall with better balanced wines. 2014 is not an easy vintage to generalise about but whites are super, reds are very pure with lovely aromatics, and, in the South, as in 2013, Syrah and Mourvèdre have done better than Grenache. In common with most of Europe, 2013 started late but a dry second half of the season resulted in some excellent wines particularly Syrah from the North. 2012 was a return to a broader, richer style across the region, while the 2011s have more elegance and freshness – qualities you’ll find in the southern Côtes du Rhône in particular. 2010 is outstanding, particularly in the South where the balance is glorious. The previous vintage, 2009 was also packed with superlatives, with the North just trumping the South – very pure, rich Syrah with tremendous potential. 2008 was certainly a ‘curate’s egg’, where we were careful to buy only the best. One of the few dips in the ‘noughties’ really, since the fabulous 2007 vintage tops even the outstanding 2006, 2005 and 2004s. A remarkable run, but tasting these wines has been an absolute pleasure in recent years, and these brilliant bottles will last, the top styles easily making 15-20 years, yet having the fresh fruit structure to enjoy in their youth. Otherwise, the hot 2003s are very rich, possibly better in the North. 2002 was rather disappointingly light and 2001 was uniformly excellent.
