Rhône Valley, 2002

2002 was an average to poor Rhône vintage.

It was a very difficult year for growers in both the northern and southern Rhône with hail, flooding, poor flowering and rot (particularly in the north), and many producers lost around half their crop.

The best wines come from the top producers and old vines. Southern reds are typically light and for early drinking, while the best northern Rhônes may have up to 10 years ageing potential.
