Rhone Valley Wine Legend Michel Chapoutier Using Bioresonance Therapy For His Vines

When it comes to new leaps in science there are always debates whether the good of such advancements outweigh the bad. One such leap in science is CRISPR, a powerful tool that “can target and cut sections of DNA like a pair of molecular scissors”. Besides helping to improve crops by preventing genetic defects and disease, it has become a subject that is currently being widely debated among the scientific community as a necessary tool to lessen human suffering. But there is a moral conundrum when opening the can of worms of such a tool justified by preventing diseases and disorders as it leaves an opportunity wide open for unethical people in power to promote a misguided ideal in the human race and intentionally wiping out a large swath of the diversity of the world.

Grapes of the Rhone Valley: Vaccarèse

Grapes of the Rhone Valley: Vaccarèse

There's not much that's more fun for us here at Tablas Creek than getting to explore new, rare, and little-known grapes. So last year, when we harvested three grapes for the first time ever, was a bonanza for us. Two of these grapes (Bourboulenc and Cinsaut) are fairly well known in France, with Cinsaut even achieving enough success to have been brought to regions as diverse as Spain, South Africa, Australia and California. But much less is known about the last of the three new grapes, Vaccarèse. One of the rarest grapes in Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation at just over 10 acres1, Vaccarèse accounts for just 0.3% of the appellation's acreage. There is little more outside Chateauneuf, with just 28 acres recorded in France as of 2016 and none, until we brought in ours, elsewhere in the world2. We've now picked two vintages of this grape, and while we don't know a ton yet, we're excited enough that I thought it would be fun to take a deep dive into what we have learned.


Dat zal Harry Karis goed doen dat hij weer eens wordt genoemd.

Grapes of the Rhone Valley: Bourboulenc

Grapes of the Rhone Valley: Bourboulenc

It's been an exciting couple of years for us getting to discover new grapes. Ten days ago, Muscardin became the fourteenth and final grape in the Beaucastel Chateauneuf-du-Pape collection to make it into the cellar at Tablas Creek. I wrote about it on the occasion of its grafting into the vineyard last June, and we're hoping to ferment maybe 10 gallons this year. I've written this summer about two red grapes that we harvested for the first time in 2019: Vaccarèse and Cinsaut. These are both sitting quietly in the cellar, awaiting bottling next year. But somehow I haven't yet written about Bourboulenc, which we've already put into bottle and even sent out to the members of our white wine VINsider club this fall. It's particularly egregious that I haven't taken up Bourboulenc given that it was the grape my dad was the most excited about when we decided to import seven obscure Chateauneuf du Pape grapes in 2003. So, let's dive in.

Vineyard irrigation is becoming a priority for the Côtes-du-Rhône

Faced with the “recurring problem of securing income”, solutions involve enhancing the price of the wines and better yields, claimed Denis Guthmuller, the new chairman of the Côtes du Rhône winegrowers’ organisation, on January 27 during a video press conference. To support sales of AOC Côtes-du-Rhône and Côtes-du-Rhône Villages, the organisation has its sights clearly set on ensuring 70% of its vineyards are certified organic and/or High Environmental Value/HVE by 2025. To reach production potential, Guthmuller is prioritising access to water.

The Rhone’s North and South divide

The Rhone’s North and South divide

“As a collector I would be wary about generalising about ‘the Rhône’ – it’s really two distinct regions. The Southern Rhône and the Northern Rhône rarely enjoy the same quality or style in any given vintage and the wines age differently.” – Matt Walls, Liv-ex Interview

Wine Guide | The Rhône Valley (2/2)

It’s difficult to let the name Châteauneuf-du-pape pass you by, since it’s one of the world’s most famous appellations. But have you heard of Beaumes-de-Venise, Rasteau or Lirac? In this second part of our guide to Rhône wines, we’re looking to the south of the region. An overview of the terroir that produces some of the finest wines on the planet, without you needing to break the bank.

Love Gamay? Here’s Why You Should Be Paying Attention to Carignan

Love Gamay? Here’s Why You Should Be Paying Attention to Carignan

Certain wine grape varieties come onto the scene and strike international gold (think: your Cabernets, Merlots, and Chardonnays). Others, such as Carignan, have had a bit of a tougher time. Despite its longstanding history in France’s soils, this hearty grape had garnered itself a pretty bad rep among industry folk and vignerons alike. High yields, low- quality fruit, and a reputation for astringency caused it to be ripped out and replaced with easier-to-farm varieties, as well as those that could garner a heftier price on the international market.

Rhone wines open Chinese promotion office

After scaling back its activities in 2020 due to Covid, the Rhone Valley wine marketing board (Inter Rhone) is re-launching structuring projects in a bid to gain market shares in France and export markets, according to its chairman Philippe Pellaton at the organisation’s AGM on June 4 in Avignon. The Chinese market continues to be a strategic destination and Inter Rhone is therefore planning to open a representative office in Shanghai at the end of the year to relaunch its promotional thrusts.
