Rhone 2019 En Primeur

2019
After a rainy winter hot weather was the norm from June to September. There was very little rain during the summer, and this is reflected in low yields and small berries giving dark and concentrated wines.
The North 2019
Another superlative vintage with exceptional amounts of sunny days resulting in rich and full wines. Fortunately, there was some rainfall in August helping with balance in ripeness. The wines have huge potential for ageing and the best will be worth keeping for 10 to 20 years. Many have alcohol levels above 14% but the structure and acidity easily handle the warmth of the vintage. The whites also benefitted from the August rain and when picked at the right time they convey enough acidity to supplement the rich fruit.
The South 2019
A much easier year than 2018 with a long hot period lasting from June to mid-September. The wines are generally more concentrated and structured than the 2018s; the acidity and tannins are also concentrated, and the best wines are those handled gently without too much extraction. The cooler terroirs have also helped; the northern and eastern part of Châteauneuf du Pape, Gigondas and some fringed regions like Ventoux have done particularly well. The whites are also a great success, especially as more producers are improving their wine making for white wines.
For many producers the wines are close to their 2016s with a little less ripeness and great structure and acidity.

Clos du Caillou

Team Caillou consists of owner Sylvie Vacheron, winemaker Bruno Gaspard and larger than life consultant Philippe Cambie, with their game plan involving consistency and greatness in equal measure. Their Châteauneuf du Papes show plenty of concentration and weight that can lend themselves to well over a decade’s ageing. The Bouquet des Garrigues bottling is the one for those looking for more immediate pleasure, but still showing the spiced black fruit house style.

Daniel & Denis Alary

Though Cairanne does not have the cachet of some of the more well-known southern appellations it is arguably the best of the Côtes du Rhône Villages. The Alary family have been farming their estate for many a generation and now under Denis’ stewardship the wines have quietly obtained best-in-area status. Predominately Grenache-led (apart from the Syrah dominant Font d’Estevenas) these supple and unassuming wines are brilliant value for money.

Domaine de la Charbonniere

The Maret family at Domaine de la Charbonnière is now into their fourth generation, with sisters Véronique and Caroline now the driving force along with enology consultant, the ubiquitous Philippe Cambie. The estate now consists of 30 hectares in total, with 19.5 of them in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and six in Vacqueyras. Like many vignerons in the Southern Rhône, they are using whole clusters more and more- 35-50% in the top 3 Chateauneuf-du-Pape's, resulting in more complexity and freshness into the wines.

Domaine Grand Veneur

Alain Jaume is less involved now, but his sons Christophe and Sebastien are taking the domaine to higher heights and regularly garnering top scores and accolades. However, he has still kept his pricing feet on the ground under this attention onslaught. Yet this doesn’t mean that the wines are any easier to get your hands on, with his stable of thoroughbred Châteauneufs still likely to have the masses fighting over limited allocations. There is a balance and purity that makes these extremely exciting wines. All thoroughly recommeneded, though the Origines may be the star buy. Please note ordering across the board will help us spread the allocation of the Vieilles Vignes, preference will be given to those buying across the range.

Domaine la Soumade

A magnificent range from the superstar of Rasteau. André Romero is a great character and arguably he and his team are making the best wines of the region. This was a really strong showing, the Grenache being so perfumed and fresh. The Rasteau Cuvée Prestige is probably the value pick, from old vines, it's a full rich style, ripe black fruits and spice to the fore. The Confiance and Fleur du Confiance are as you would expect, seriously impressive, age-worthy wines from a great vintage.

Domaine Lionel (Philippe) Faury

Philippe and his son Lionel are now making some of the best wine in the region. They are certainly very good value.

Domaine Mordorée

Having featured in his own French TV programme Christophe Delorme is well and truly a superstar winemaker. But it was not for his rugged good looks or charming family that he was chosen, though he has both. Christophe is also one of the very best vignerons in the country (and the world according to a rather influential Baltimore-based writer) and makes beautifully supple and complex wines from Lirac and Châteauneuf du Pape. Beware, limited quantities and waiting lists lie ahead.
As ever we don't get much of the Châteauneuf du Pape Reine des Bois and it helps to buy other wines to get an allocation. The red wines are very successful in 2017. The Lirac La Dame Rousse is a great value, it has a lovely core of ripe berry fruit with spice and ripe tannins. Both the Reine des Bois wines are really super, full and rich with gobs of sweet fruit and spice, the Lirac will be delicious in a few years, the Châteauneuf du Pape needs more time but will be sensational. Likewise the super value Châteauneuf du Pape 'La Dame Voyageuse' a touch closed at present, savoury and meaty with great potential.

Domaine Roger Sabon

“Jean-Jacques and his family continue to produce reference point wines at all different levels as thus is one of the top estate in Chateauneuf du Pape.” Robert Parker

All their cuvees are very impressive from ‘Le Secret’ made in tiny quantities, 2000 bottles, from vineyards of over 100 years old to the cuvee ‘Les Olivets’, which must be one of the best value wines produced in the appellation.
The Chateauneuf's were all extremely impressive, the Olivets has a lovely balance, and the Reserve really fine, big and powerful yet with good acidity. The Prestige is juicy and dense, red and black fruits, almost a bitter-sweet character with meat and spice, powerful yet already it's beautifully balanced. These will age very well.
Secret de Sabon is likely to be a max of 3 bottles per customer, and ideally to be ordered with other wines.
