Rhône Valley, 1996

1996 was an average to goodish year in the Rhône Valley. It was also an irregular year in terms of quality. A cool, damp summer was followed by a dry September. The Mistral helped prevent rot and grapes were picked late to ensure ripeness.

There were some good concentrated wines made, but in general they lacked a little acidity and made for relatively early enjoyment. Those growers who selected rigorously fared the best.
