Vintage Notes by Decanter 3/2022: "At the heart of the Rhone 2020 vintage lies a paradox. If growing conditions were marked by heat and drought--like several of the preceding vintages--then why are the wines so very different in style? There are no conclusive reasons, but the 2020s are fresh, vibrant and deliciously drinkable, with well-defined flavors that faithfully reflect their terroir. Alcohols feel lower this year than in the three preceding vintages, making for better balanced, more approachable wines, and lovers of white Rhones will be thrilled--they have a rare fluidity and brightness."
