Rasteau, Cairanne & Vinsobres 2019: Report and top scoring wines

Matt Walls found mixed results when tasting the 2019 wines but says there are consistent, fresh and expressive whites to be found in Cairanne and balanced reds in Vinsobres.

Overextraction is a common problem in Rasteau this year, which is particularly regrettable since it’s avoidable. The result is a lot of very burly, unfriendly tannins.

Some wines will come round in time – many I tasted were only part-way through barrel maturation after all, so will further soften before bottling.
