Tasting notes for southern Rhône whites from the 2018 vintage. For a guide to our coverage of the Rhône 2018 vintage, see this article. For a more in-depth look at the vintage, see Lifting the lid on 2018 in the Rhône.

If big, glutinous whites are your preference, then there's a lot to enjoy in the 2018 vintage of whites from the southern Rhône. Ch de Beaucastel have excelled, as have Dom de Cristia and Dom Georges-Lombrière. In fact, there's no shortage of decent whites to choose from, although that proviso about style should always be remembered.
