Cotes du Rhone is the most generic appellation in the Southern Rhone. Its reach is gigantic. Most of the wines are fruity, Grenache-based, and inexpensive. The maximum yields are high -- 50 hl/ha -- and the majority of the wines are, well, bistro wines. There are, however, a few quality-minded producers of Cotes du Rhone, and many more solid, reliable ones. The prices are good, so those wines are well worth seeking out.

  • Morel Cotes du Rhone Villages Signargues 2010


    Red and black fruit on the nose along with herbs and pepper. Black cherry, hints of licorice, damp earth and garrigue. Medium bodied on the palate with gritty tannins, yet an elegance all around. It's spicy and peppery with plum, red and black berry fruit. Some green notes, but in a welcome manner.89 pts. Read More

  • I am not super familiar with Paso Robles and was even a bit apprehensive to go thinking all their wines were the big, over-extracted high alcohol fruit bombs I have had at times before.  A couple friends and I went for the weekend, staying in San Luis Obispo and want to Paso one day and Santa Maria/LosOlivos the second. On day one, we got there ...

  • I opened a couple 2002 Northern Rhone reds (Syrah) last week. TGB Wine Chart tells us that this was a difficult year but the wines can be drunk young. The Cote Rotie and Cornas were very acidic with little structure and light body.The price was reduced to around $30. Great deal! Although not perfect, these wines hit that sweet spot that most Nor...

  • Hospice du Rhone, the brainchild of John Alban, has become Spring's epicenter for all things Rhone.  This global celebration is a warm embrace of all 22 grape varieties that trace their heritage to the lands that surround France’s 505 mile watering hole, 18 years strong, with this year, embarrassingly, being my first.  Well, it took me ten years...
