Cote-du-rhône Wine

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.

    Bright, jammy fruit with great balance. I very much enjoyed this wine. Actually more so than the Chateuneuf Du Pape we tasted today.-Tasted at Marché Bacchus 11/14/09 Read More

  • Ac Vinsobres Celliers des Dauphins Rouge 2006


    A really solid AC vinsobres with nice ,soft berry fruit and great mouthfeel. I'm sure that a little time in the bottle did not hurt, nonetheless. Strawberries and pepper. Read More

  • Caves Saint-Pierre Cotes du Rhone-Villages 'Preference' 2007


    Really lovely and you can tell the Carignan's presence with the great, ripe red fruit in the blend. Very complex pepper and sweet spice layers too. Read More

  • M. Chapoutier Organic Cotes du Rhone Rouge 2006


    Solid, straightforward if not slightly overpriced CDR. Everything with it seemed right, from balance to fruit and spice, but it never provided that 'aha!' sort of moment. Read More

  • Gabriel Meffre Cotes du Rhone la Chasse du Pape 2007


    Not that the "Reserve" actually means anything, legally speaking, but the wine is a nice little informal bottle of CDR. Not my favorite, but balanced enough and with decent enough fruit concentration and spice. Read More

  • Weird title right?Who pulls Beaujolais from the cellar you might ask. Well I do but I can't say I'm a leader in that field. In fact several of my friends have rather varied assortments of Beaujolais resting in the deep recesses of their cellars and through their generosity I have come to know the wonder of aged Gamay.Wines are strange beasts, th...
