Spesialslipp Rhône og Languedoc



Denne gangen er det klart for et slipp fra Rhône og Languedoc med noen få ekstra, blant annet Dunn Howell Mountain som er ett av slippets beste viner. Hvit Rhône er bedre og renere i utrykket enn tidligere, trenden har pågått noen år men selv med relativt lavere syre fremstør vinene nå som relativt friske med mindre gulfrukt og honningaromaer. De røde, særlig i syd sliter med svært modne aromaer, tidvis mer herbale toner også, høy alkohol og et søtladent utrykk. Heldigvis er det perler i nord.

Languedoc  øker kvaliteten, men vinene er dermed dessverre ikke nødvendigvis billige lengre heller. En reise i regionen i våres gav ny innsikt i friskheten særlig hvite begynner å oppnå, noen viste også mineralske undertoner. De røde får bedre og bedre balanse og blir mer helhetlige, så Languedoc kan man ikke bare feie unna lengre. Châteauneuf-du-Pape klarer dessverre ikke å komme seg ut av Parkerhengemyra og enkelte amerikanske journalister hauser fortsatt opp vinene. Dem om det. Blåbærsyltetøy og alkoholisk duft og ettersmak imponerer ikke meg. Og stadig færre forbrukere. Nesten over alt går alkoholprodusenten nedover selv om enkelte årganger er unntaket, men her ser det ikke ut til at trenden snur.
