Rhône En Primeur 2017

We will be visiting the Rhône this Autumn to taste the 2017 wines.

Initial vintage report

After two very good vintages in the Rhône, will 2017 follow suit? Early indicators suggest it will. Despite difficult conditions in the Northern Rhône, a very good quality seems to have prevailed. The Syrah, what the region is famous for, looks to be concentrated and in balance.

In the Southern Rhône, the weather proved equally difficult throwing frost, rain and high heat at growers at times, but they have rallied and seemingly produced wines, particularly reds, with concentration ideal for aging.
