Rhône 2015 case

Case of 12
One of the many benefits of being a member of The Wine Society is that, as a member-owned co-operative with no external shareholders to please, we can buy fine wines on release and mature them in the ideal conditions of our cellars until our buyers are satisfied that they are at their best. Now, with a new name – Museum Release – we’ve put together a global exhibition of a vintage that shone in wine regions around the world: 2015. Six years on, many are open for business and a joy to drink. Rhône buyer Marcel Orford-Williams hailed 2015 as a vintage of ‘opulence and splendour’, and this case of six Rhône reds backs up that opinion.

Reviews

Wines included

Beaumes de Venise, Domaine de Boussières 2015

Although the Rhône’s Beaumes de Venise is better known for its sweet muscat, the grenache-dominated reds are very good too. This is similar to Gigondas but maybe a little gentler. Full and generous with thick spicy plum flavours, will certainly pack the necessary punch on a cold autumn or winter day.

France £16.00 per bottle

Côtes-du-Rhône Reserve Wine Society, Paul Jaboulet Aîné 2015

An exclusive blend from this great Rhône name, partly from Plan de Dieu and part Cairanne, with some very ripe grenache and syrah. This is full-flavoured and rich, and perfect for drinking now.

France

Côtes-du-Rhône Villages, Notre Dame des Cellettes, Domaine Sainte-Anne 2015

Domaine Sainte-Anne is one of the remarkable estates of the southern Rhône. The Stenmaiers, originally from Burgundy, were pioneers, introducing viognier, syrah and mourvèdre to the area. Both of the latter grapes are used here though the majority is grenache. Full-flavoured and rich with lovely soft fruit, made from 40-year-old vines.

France £13.95 per bottle

Cairanne, Domaine Roche 2015

From a new estate in Cairanne with a good inventory of vineyard, this is a lovely grenache-dominant blend, fruity, round and generously flavoured.

France £11.95 per bottle

Crozes-Hermitage 'Les Pierelles', Domaine Belle 2015

A perfumed and finely grained northern Rhône syrah with violets, ripe plum and herbal notes on the medium-bodied palate and a lovely long finish. Ready to enjoy now, especially if allowed an hour in a decanter.

France

Massif d'Uchaux Côtes du Rhône Villages Vieilles Vignes, Château Saint Estève 2015

A splendid barrel-aged Rhône made from 50-50 grenache-syrah. This is full-bodied and richly flavoured in the outstanding 2015 vintage, packed with fig, blackberry, black olive and spice. Perfect with a Sunday roast.

France £15.50 per bottle
