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

    Snoothrank:

    Beef jus and dried herbs, salt and dried leaves on the nose. Some cinnamon spice. Rose petals. On the palate, dusty, dried herbs, meat stock, truffle, dried strawberry and cinnamon disc candy. Nice interesting flavors remain. Interesting what cellaring has allowed this to age to. Read More

  • Anyone noticing how RP is carefully measuring his response to what many agree is the amazing 2010 vintage in the S. Rhone?"The amazing 2010 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Terre d'Argile may be just as good as the 2007. A black/ruby color is followed by abundant aromas of cassis, blackberries, black cherries, licorice and a hint of charcoal. The wine po... Read More

  • Louis Bernard Cotes du Rhone Villages 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Hmmm. I have been following the modestly priced Louis Bernard line for a few years now and have never been disappointed at the quality to price ratio. This CdR Village wine is no exception. There is crushed red fruit and plum on the nose with an almost metallic note. On the palate, there is considerable acidity present for such a good vintage... Read More

  • Domaine Notre Dame des Pallieres Rasteau 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Youthful purple hue. Starts with brooding dark mulberry fruit then mellows out to a more raspberry quality. Intense but rustic and not too richly-fruited, helped along by grippy tannins. There is the expected pepper spice of the region and a long finish. Read More

    This is always a solid bottle. Lots of strawberry and just enough forest floor. Good value. Read More

  • Morel Pierre Henri Signargues Cotes du Rhone Villages 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This wine - sourced from a reputable Chateauneuf du Pape house (Morel) - has the usual approachable jammy nose and entry but has a somewhat off-putting bitterness. This acerbic detraction may abate with 2-3 years of further bottle aging, however. Decent value. Read More
