Rhône Valley – White wines above 89 Points

Rhône Valley
White wines above 89 Points


PHOTO-1


Known as one of the oldest wine regions in the world with a history of more than 2000 years, the Rhône Valley is also one of the biggest producing regions of France, with its 250 km from North to South. There are 28 appellations representing 27 grape varieties (both red and white) and there is little doubt that almost everyone knows at least one big appellation like Châteauneuf-du-Pape. In the blind tasting sessions organized since 2011 the Rhône Valley ones are particularly interesting. The contrasts between the wines produced in the North and the South give very different identities to the wines and a hard work to Andreas Larsson, Best Sommelier of the World, when it comes the moment to analyze them in blind conditions. Now we want to propose you a ranking of the best white wines from the Rhône Valley, with 55 wines scored above 89 points. Hermitage, Condrieu, Saint Joseph, Ventoux – more than 15 regions are represented in this prestigious ranking. To really understand how Andreas Larsson scores the wines we invite you to have a look on the explanation of his grading scale:

VERY GOOD 89 to 92 it is a very good to outstanding wine generally complex, structured and age worthy with a lot of character and terroir expression. 
OUTSTANDING 93 to 96 it is an outstanding to world class wine which possesses complexity, nuance, terroir expression, age worthiness, concentration and length. 
EXCEPTIONAL 97-100 means that´s one of the great wine of the world – unique and personal with all of the above-mentioned qualities in terms of complexity, density, concentration, length and age worthiness but also unique personality, maturity or potential for incredibly long ageing to become something extremely unique.

Andreas Larsson’s note is generally 3 points under others’ sommeliers and journalists note. This difference is for sure the result of the blind tasting condition. In blind conditions, a Reserva from Argentina can be better scored than a Gran Reserva. Without a label, everything tastes real!
