Winemaker notes

The 2016 vintage in the souther Rhône is being heralded as a "near perfect" vintage. Ideal conditions, similar to 2015, were offset by cooler nights, allowing acidities to remain elevated as harvest approached. James Molesworth of Wine Spectator has noted "producers are likening it to the classic 2010, with its powerful fruit but greater emphasis on structure and spine."
