Rasteau, Cairanne & Vinsobres 2021: report and top-scoring wines

Matt Walls navigates the intricacies of the difficult vintage and pinpoints the key wines to try from Rasteau, Cairanne and Vinsobres in 2021.

Vinsobres

Though it often sits in the shadow of Cairanne and Rasteau, Vinsobres performed relatively well this year, and many of the wines have a good sense of freshness.

The characteristic angular tannins are quite marked, however, so give them a year or two, which will also help to further integrate any new oak, which has frequently been applied liberally here.
