Rhône 2020

Vintage Report Rhône 2020

For the charm, balance and youthful beauty of its wines, 2020 is an unmissable vintage. Overall, it was a sunny year characterised by drought and a good-sized crop (for the majority of producers), with less extreme heat and higher yields than its predecessor, 2019. As a result, the wines feel less powerful, but more immediate and even-keeled. Make no mistake, though, the best 2020s have sufficient depth and the right balance to ensure excellent ageing potential. These are sun-kissed but juicy, harmonious wines with less alcohol than the 2019s, a difference in some cases of up to half a degree. Producers across the length and breadth of the Rhône extol the vintage’s virtues, with Domaine Clusel Roch describing 2020 as like a balance of 2018 and 2016 but better than either; or Jolivet who considers it “juicy and elegant”, whilst in the south Barroche compare it to the great 2012 in that the ‘20s are “similarly round but fresher”. Beaucastel go the whole hog and call it “one of the all-time classics,” referencing the great 1990 and 2010 vintages as comparisons.

Rhône 2020 Producers

From up in the roasted slopes of Côte Rôtie, to the hallowed, historical terroir of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, via the ubiquitous staple of the Côtes du Rhône, the winemakers of the Rhône valley come in many shapes and sizes and each have something utterly delectable to offer everyone - this is a region that requires exploring.

Appellations of Rhône

Appellations likes Hermitage and Cornas are household names in the homes of wine-lovers the world over. A quick delve into the fruits of the areas and it’s not hard to see why - sumptuous Reds, rewarding Whites, vociferously coveted Rosés – the wines of the Rhône Valley - both north and south - continue to bewitch, beguile and simply bowl us over.

Grape Types of Rhône

Well-renowned for its powerful, almost bullish, Syrah and Grenache blends, the Rhone Valley has much more to offer. The Viognier found here is second to none and the Condrieu wines it produces are a pleasure to get lost in. Look to the region for lip-smackingly luscious Rosés too.
