Rhône: 2015 Vintage
We often forget that long before the First Growths commanded some of the highest prices of any red wines in the world, there was Hermitage. It’s all too easy: Bordeaux has sought the international spotlight while the Rhône Valley has shrunk from it.
In vintages like 2015, however, it’s hard for the Rhône to avoid the limelight. Indeed, the Rhône saw one of the best vintages in decades, and arguably the North performed better than any other winemaking region in France this year.
