Region 'Red Rhone' - Year 1977
|drink now||Pallid and astringent from the north, and modest wines from southern Rhone, not for keeping|
The year showed promise, despite an unusually cool summer, and a dry warm September helped the grapes to ripen in the south. But then rain ruined those prospects.
Many wines are light and tart although some good white Hermitage was produced. Most reds from the north were pallid and astringent. Remaining wines should be drunk up. Very modest wines from the southern Rhône, not for keeping. (Condrieu produced light, rather thin wines.)
