Vintage description 1990 South Rhone

Sweltering temperatures prior to the harvest meant a fantastic vintage across all of the appellations in the Rhône Valley. The Côte-Rôtie wines are excellent and at times even extraordinary. Fabulously rich, the Hermitage wines are aromatic, concentrated and boast excellent ageing potential. The Saint-Joseph and Crozes-Hermitage wines are rich and powerful. The Condrieu wines feature a rare level of concentration. In the southern vineyards, all wines were a success. Incredibly rich, tannic and concentrated, the Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines enjoy great ageing potential.
