Rhône 2016

2016 Rhône Vintage Report

The 2016 vintage has proved to be another outstanding Rhône vintage and after being in Southern France last week and speaking to many producers, everyone is in agreement that this is another standout Rhone year across the board. 2016 generally was a hotter year though interestingly despite this, the acidity levels were better than those of 2015, meaning the 2016 vintage has even better ageing potential for the future. 

"another fantastic year for the region, following on from the excellent 2015s" Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

"I've now tasted 15 vintages in the region's cellars, and the 2016 is hands down the best young vintage I have seen. I'm not alone in this thought, either." James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

"One of the most exciting Southern Rhone vintages of my lifetime." Joe Czerwinski, RoberParker.com
