Côte-Rôtie & Condrieu 2022: Report and top-scoring wines

Soil type and winemaking techniques played their part in producing the best examples of Côte-Rôtie and Condrieu this year, but the Côte-Rôties may take a while to come round, says Matt Walls

Côte-Rôtie

Young Côte-Rôties are normally fairly easy to read, but that wasn’t the case with the 2022s. Many of them appeared very fruity, with soft structures, lacking energy and aromatic detail. There were some excellent exceptions however, often from those originating from old vines grown on schist and fermented with a proportion of whole bunch.
