2017 Rhône

Cabernet-Dominated Wines

The great grape variety of bordeaux’s left bank does well in the south of France too, and made beautiful wines in 2017. This is a small section of cabernet-dominated wines that were too good to miss.

Domaine de Perdiguier, Cuvée en Auger, Vin de Pays des Coteaux d’Ensérune 2017

Delicious proof of how well cabernet and merlot can work in the Languedoc. That French word, sucrosité, headed my tasting note for this very accomplished claret-like red, displaying as it does a lovely sweet blackcurrant flavour, complemented by oak and a lick of spice. Drink from 2021 to 2030. 13.5%

Mas de Daumas Gassac Rouge 2017

April frosts saw the crop at this pioneering Languedoc estate much reduced. But if quantity is an issue, quality is definitely not! A super-ripe, richly flavoured, fleshy 2017 with a very long finish, this is very distinguished indeed. Drink from 2022 to 2034. 13.5% Magnums (FC36094 @ £139 per three) available.

Domaine de Trévallon, Vin de Pays des Bouches du Rhône Rouge 2017

A magnificent 2017 from Trévallon, made from a 50:50 split between cabernet sauvignon and syrah. Very expressive, ripe-tasting and very long on the finish. Drink from 2023 to 2037. 13.5% Magnums (RH51554 @ £189 per three) available.
