Côtes-du-rhône Wine

ABOUT COTES DU RHONE WINES. LOCATION: The Côtes du Rhône vineyards run along the banks of the Rhône River between Lyon and Avignon in South East France. The region is divided in two distinct parts, North and South. Both areas are primarily known for red wines. The area covers about 100 000 acres of vines (half of the Rhône Valley total acreage) over 171 villages. Grapes can be sourced from one single vineyard or from as many villages as 171. NORTHERN RHONE: The vines benefit from a semi-continental climate between Vienne and Valence, where the Syrah grape variety is at its best. These wines are superb with elegance and subtleness that pair nicely with stews which have simmered for hours, sausages, steaks, creamy cheeses, etc. SOUTHERN RHONE: Between Montélimar and Avignon, the climate is fully Mediterranean with the Grenache grape variety far in the lead. Associated with the Syrah and Mourvèdre grape varieties, it brings spicy notes which enhance southern cooking such as different vegetable Read more »

  • Cuvee Notre-Dame des Cellettes Domaine Sainte-Anne Cotes de Rhone Villages 2009

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this bottle of wine for £10 from the www.cellartrade website. It is from the Cotes du Rhone Villages appellation which was set up in 1953 for red,rose and white wines from 90 communes in the southern Rhone valley. My bottle comes from a small family producer in this area and is a blend of grenache,syrah and mourvrde although IO do not k... Read More

  • La Vieille Ferme Blanc Luberon 2017

    Snoothrank:

    This wine is simply astounding value at about nine dollars US (12 $C in Canada). the nose is quite pungent... with crushed nettle, black pepper and a hint of peach. The entry is smooth, with a hint of used cinnamon bark and lots of good white fruit. Vermentino and Grenache Blanc seem to dominate. For parties at Yuletide, this cannot be beat. ... Read More

  • 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

  • One of the few real bargains left in France are found in the southern Rhone and Bouche du Rhône and fall under the appellation Cotes du Rhône and Cotes du Rhône-Villages.  These wines are delicious whether red or white, and are still affordable at good price to quality ratios.  Their copies in Australia, South Africa, Australia and North America...

  • Interesting choice.  This grape variety is a common ingredient in Cotes du Rhone Blancs - usually, those by reputable but large-scale producers like Louis Bernard who make a tasty example.  I have never tried a pure varietal version such as this Paso Robles example (though the provenance is not surprising - many Rhone-like wines seem to thrive i...

  • Kermit Lynch Cotes du Rhone 2014

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is medium light bodied. Grenache nose. Red fruited on entry with good acidity and finishes very long with some strong but mostly resolved tannin. Nicely balanced. Kermit prefers stem inclusion and that is evident with this wine. It's very much like a pinot noir in body, interesting wine. Wish I had more. Read More
