Rhône 2015 Vintage Report
2015 was a very great vintage year throughout the Rhône valley from the humble Côtes du Rhône’s to the great wines of Hermitage & the Côte-Rôtie.
All represent spectacular value for money compared to any other fine wine region in France and indeed the World. After nearly perfect weather, with summer days that could be compared to the very hot year of 2003, the grapes ripened beautifully with concentrated fruit flavours. The rainfall in late August and cold nights throughout meant that the structure and acidity of these wines is absolutely perfect, balancing those fruit flavours and producing extraordinary tasting wines with great structure. Generally, Syrah in the North and Grenache in the South produced wines of intense colours, with bursting flavours and rich tannins.
This is the best Rhône vintage in over 10 years in our opinion and nearly all the wine critics too, without doubt, this it the year to buy Rhône.
