The Rhone Valley’s Glorious 2015s



Aahh… the wines of France’s Rhone Valley, divine from north to south, but our love has hit a new level with these 2015s. So much of what we are tasting is truly exceptional, from basic Cotes du Rhones to high-end cuvées of Chateauneuf du Papes. The wines have a lushness that is alluring but it is their purity and focus that has us hooked.


Check out what Josh Reynolds of the highly respected Vinous Media had to say on the vintage.


“As in Beaujolais and Burgundy to the north, the extended, warm 2015 growing season, which began with an early budbreak, presented growers with ideal conditions for achieving optimal ripeness. But it also delivered fruit with healthy acidity thanks to cool nights leading up to harvest, resulting in a large number of stellar wines that smoothly combine ripeness and energy. Indeed, a number of producers in Châteauneuf appear to have made their best wines in recent memory.


What especially impresses me about the 2015 vintage in Châteauneuf-du-Pape is the consistently high quality of the wines, from entry-level bottlings up to the limited-production special cuvées coveted by collectors. There are striking wines to be had at every price point in 2015, including numerous basic bottlings that deliver exceptional value.”  


I also believe that, because of the harmonious tannins of the wines, the ‘15s will never really shut down hard, which was the case with a number of 2010s and 2005s. If there was ever a southern Rhone vintage worth going wide and long on, ’15 is a winning bet. - Josh Reynolds Vinous Media
