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.

  • Domaine de la Deydiere Valreas Cotes du Rhone Villages Cuvee Maurice 1996


    This shows what cellaring can do for a wine! Garnet in the glass. Minty suggestion to the red fruit, black tea and dried rose on the nose along with fresh lavender. Good structure and acid remaining. Soft tannin. Red dominant with flavors of pomegranate, cranberry and currant. Nice still!92 pts.3/9/13 Read More
