The Controlled Appellation of Cotes du Rhone Villages was established in 1966 in the south east France. Exclusive to the Southern Rhone, Cotes du Rhone Villages wines covers 95 villages, of which 18 have the right to include their name on the label. TERROIR: The soil types are the same as in Cotes du Rhone, but the climate and soil criteria accepted, are far more strict, due to the production rules for this Appellation. As a rule, stony argilo-calcaireous soils produce full-bodied complex wines, deeply colored with a powerful bouquet. Dry stony soils produce more refined wines, renowned for elegance, finesse and fruitiness. GRAPE VARIETIES (red): Primary: Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre Secondary: Carignan, Cinsault, Counoise, Muscardin, Camarese or Vaccarese, Picpoul, Terret TASTING & DRINKING: The full-bodied red wines are the ideal compliment for game (venison, wild boar, hare), Provencal stew, and a myriad of stuffed vegetables dishes and truffle seasoned specialties. The white wines, with their Read more »

    Snoothrank:

  • Gabriel Meffre Plan de Dieu Côtes du Rhône Villages "Saint Mapalis" 2016

    Snoothrank:

    The 2016 edition of the Gabriel Meffre Plan de Dieu (Saint-Mapalis) is an excellent bargain for those buying for everyday drinking with some quality to spare: the nose is redolent of sweet cherry - perhaps a little raspberry poking through, with a smooth entry perfect for meats and stews, with good grip and light tannin. Finish has a slight puc... Read More

  • Kirkland Signature Cotes du Rhone Villages 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Very pretty wine, plumish in color and nicely pure. When first opened the syrah was front and center with lots of blue and black fruit finishing with some acid and some noticable tannin. With air the grenache stepped forward and offered some cherry with a soft finish. This is the third vintage of this wine I've drank and if you enjoy cotes du rh... Read More
