Rhone 2016 En Primeur
20 November 2017

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. Certainly when tasting the wines you get no sense of a stressed season. For these 2016s are flowing and silken. Notable for their incredibly fine tannins, belying a discrete intensity, the wines have a generous, alluring quality to them with enough of a pique of freshness to provide lift. Comparisons have been drawn with 1990, 2007 but most of all 2010. Though it is every bit as good if not better than the latter, we feel it is a very different vintage. Acidities are as fresh as 2010 but the wines feel more charming in 2016 and alcohol, surprisingly, was lower ranging between 14 to 14.5%. Many growers have made their most abundant and what they believe to be their best vintage. A great year to tuck away in the cellar or drink young, avoiding, of course, Châteauneuf’s infamous adolescent period between three and eight years after bottle.    Read More
