Rhône Valley, 1983

1983 was a very good northern Rhône vintage and a goodish one for the southern Rhône. After initial rains, the summer growing season proved to be long and hot. The south was slightly less successful due to rains during the harvest.

Côte Rôtie and Hermitage made some great wines in the north – rich, fruity, and powerful with structure for ageing. The vintage was more irregular in the south, with some very good, concentrated wines to really quite poor offerings.
