Rhône 2016

vintage report Rhône 2016

As flippant as the title may seem, Rhône is certainly on a very serious roll. 2016 will go down as another great Rhône vintage. As hard as it may be to believe, this vintage is as good as and, in many cases, better than, 2015.

There is no hesitation from Southern Rhône growers: Vieux Télégraphe describe it as “magical”, Beaucastel as “idylllic and exceptional,” while Barroche’s Julien Barrot recalls picking berries at harvest: “Cinema grapes, they were so beautiful to look at!” So why all the excitement? It was a dry rather than an excessively hot vintage. By and large days were sunny and nights cool. Flowering was successful so the crop was of good size and ripening homogenous. Rain in mid-September ensured that the vines completed their ripening cycle before harvest at the end of the month.
