2017 and 2018 Northern Rhône

The 2017 vintage in the northern Rhône was marked by unpredictable weather swings, resulting in a short crop of ripe, healthy grapes that produced numerous fruit-forward, highly attractive wines to drink young. Meanwhile, 2018 was another hot year, but the wines show more energy than their 2017 siblings.

Vinous Favorites

2018 Castello di Ama Purple Rose  ($22.00) 90

2018 Castello di Ama Purple Rose , 90 points

Ama’s 2018 Purple Rose is a saignée of Sangiovese fermented partly in a combination of steel and oak (30%). Rich and textured, with lovely depth, the 2018 is silky, perfumed and light on its feet. It has more than enough complexity and depth to drink well with a wide range of foods. (AG)

1959 Domaine Duroché Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaut Saint-Jacques 1er Cru

During last November’s visit, following a tasting of his 2017s, Duroché said that he had something else he wished me taste, and did I have time? Well, the answer to that question is always affirmative.
