Northern Rhône Wine

 

The northern Rhone is a section of the river of the same name in the southeast of France. Here, the Rhone Valley is steep and narrow, and the powerful mistral wind blows through it. The best vineyards are on terraced slopes. Syrah is the most important grape variety, and some of the red wines made from it stand with the best of Bordeaux. The following appellations produce mostly red wines made from Syrah, as well as a small amount of white wine: Cote Rotie (no white), St-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage, Cornas (no white), and Hermitage. Condrieu and Chateau Grillet both make unique wines from Viognier. Chateau Grillet is a monopole -- an entire appellation that belongs to only one producer. There are also sparkling white wines made in St-Peray from Marsanne and Roussanne.

  • Eric et Joël Durand "Les Coteaux" Saint-Joseph 2012

    Snoothrank:

    This needed a good hour of decanting before drinking and it evolves as you drink. Blueberry, currant, pepper, gamy notes with additional layers of nuance lead to a medium tannin finish. Easily has a couple of years left. Paul 92 points. Read More

  • Guigal Crozes Hermitage 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Pop and pour it was a bit shy on the nose but black and blue fruit were there. Good fruit on the palate and a bit earthy. Mid palate balancing acids took over and finished with enjoyable tannins. Old world in style, nice enjoyable wine but not particularly complex. Read More
