2015 Southern Rhone - "…a beautiful vintage for Southern Rhône lovers…”

As a vintage, 2015 is a welcome return to more consistent and favourable climatic conditions, after a pair of tricky vintages in 2014 and 2013. Jeb Dunnuck, the Wine Advocate’s Rhône expert, says that “…the quality is incredibly high across all of the appellations, and even across all varieties, which is uncommon.”

Having separately offered the excellent range of wines from Château de Beaucastel, today we look at some of the other fabulous producers from this very special region.

Domaine de la Janasse

A producer in the more traditional style, Domaine de la Janasse has built up a huge following over the years. Jeb Dunnuck says that these 2015s lean more towards a Burgundian style than some of their neighbours – by which he means elegance over power.
