A guide to our extensive coverage of the 2022 vintage throughout the Rhône Valley. Above, Viognier grapes harvested in Condrieu (© Bernard Favre).
Alistair Cooper MW spent several weeks in the Rhône Valley this past autumn, both in the north and the south, tasting the 2022s and talking to winemakers. He's been sharing his expert assessment of the vintage and its wines in a series of articles, including tasting notes on over 1,000 wines – starting with the northern Rhône before moving to the south. We detail the coverage below; please also check our tasting note database for any 2022 wines you're interested in, as we're likely to have covered them once Ali's reports are complete, towards the end of November.
