2015 Rhône

Languedoc and Roussillon Reds

Persistent drought produced powerful, concentrated wines in 2015 with the best growers able to tame the heat of this vintage. This is the pick of the crop.

Faugères Maison Jaune, Domaine Alquier 2015

A grenache-dominant red with little new oak. Grainy, full and fruity with great finesse. 2019–2027.

Corbières-Boutenac Atal Sia, Château Ollieux-Romanis 2015

A stand-out wine from the Languedoc. Carignan dominated and aged in tank rather than barrel, the wine is black and fruity with notes of blueberry and wet stone. Lots of depth and very suave tannins. 2020–2027.

Montpeyroux Bleu Velours, Domaine La Jasse Castel 2015

Carignan and syrah dominate in this plush, concentrated Languedoc red. The 2015 is dark and spicy, and will need a little time. 2020–2027.

Corbières Cuvée Or, Château Ollieux Romanis 2015

The blend is similar to the delicious Atal Sia but the élevage is different, as here the wine is raised in barrel. The result is more evident concentration, more obvious weight and richness, and succulent, creamy fruit. A winning combination. 2018–2028.

Minervois La Livinière Grand Vin, Château Sainte-Eulalie

This has no oak, but a deliciously pure expression of fruit instead. The blend is 50% syrah, with the remainder comprising carignan and grenache, and the whole is very full and generous in this ripe vintage. 2018–2026.

Coteaux du Languedoc, Prieuré Saint Jean de Bébian 2015

This is one of the iconic estates of the Languedoc with a terroir that is perfectly suited to Châteauneuf-style wines that have great depth and complexity of flavour. The 2015 red is essentially syrah based with 25% grenache, sporting rich flavours of black fruits and graphite. 2020–2030.

Coteaux du Languedoc Puech Noble, Rostaing 2015

René Rostaing is not a master of syrah for nothing, so syrah accounts for about 70% of the blend here. He also loves the mourvèdre grape which can’t ripen as far north as Côte-Rôtie; so he bought a vineyard near Nîmes. The syrah on its own was brilliant enough, but the grenache and mourvèdre add extra complexity. 2018–2026.

Faugères Les Bastides, Domaine Alquier 2015

An outstanding effort in 2015, making use of 70% syrah, aged in barrel and all from old vines. A sort of Côte-Rôtie of the south! Well worth buying. 2021–2030.

Côtes du Roussillon-Villages Vieilles Vignes, Domaine Gauby 2015

A finely balanced syrah-grenache blend from the Roussillon. Inevitably in a full-bodied style in the ripe 2015 vintage – the best at Gauby for some time. 2018–2029.

FC31801 Bottles6 Price£120.00 Type
FC31811

Côtes du Roussillon-Villages Muntada, Domaine Gauby 2015

Immense and exceptional red from one of Gauby’s finest recent vintages. Need we say more?! A must-try. 2021–2035.
