Rhône 2019 – “Extremely Promising”
Expert Josh Raynolds at Vinous published his Rhône 2019 vintage report in May. His assessment was that 2019 was a continuation of the recent pattern, with a hot and dry growing season with basically no rain in the summer. Despite a little hail in Crozes-Hermitage, the crop was generally in excellent shape. This has led to an excellent vintage and comparisons to the hugely acclaimed 2015:
“Like 2018, 2019 was a hot and dry year, but the wines look extremely promising and show an uncanny blend of depth and vivacity” - Vinous
“A number of producers who aren’t prone to hyperbole told me they think 2019 and 2015 are the most impressive of this recent run of great years” - Vinous
“My strong suspicion is that the 2019 vintage is going to be getting some serious hype, much of it well deserved” – Vinous
