2017 Rhône

Cairanne, Rasteau and neighbours

Although they occupy a central position in the south and produce equally heady, full-bodied wines, these regions still have distinct styles. Cairannes tend to be subtler, the wines of Rasteau bolder and more dramatic, while the flat, stony Plan de dieu, which extends below them, offers some superb value.
