Côtes-du-rhône Wine

ABOUT COTES DU RHONE WINES. LOCATION: The Côtes du Rhône vineyards run along the banks of the Rhône River between Lyon and Avignon in South East France. The region is divided in two distinct parts, North and South. Both areas are primarily known for red wines. The area covers about 100 000 acres of vines (half of the Rhône Valley total acreage) over 171 villages. Grapes can be sourced from one single vineyard or from as many villages as 171. NORTHERN RHONE: The vines benefit from a semi-continental climate between Vienne and Valence, where the Syrah grape variety is at its best. These wines are superb with elegance and subtleness that pair nicely with stews which have simmered for hours, sausages, steaks, creamy cheeses, etc. SOUTHERN RHONE: Between Montélimar and Avignon, the climate is fully Mediterranean with the Grenache grape variety far in the lead. Associated with the Syrah and Mourvèdre grape varieties, it brings spicy notes which enhance southern cooking such as different vegetable Read more »

    Wine review by doublefantasy


  • Primus the Blend 2012

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a deep indigo in the glass, with brighter garnet along the edges. The nose is a lovely combination of smoke, ripe black fruit, rosemary and clove. The flavor is quite nice, with some sweet fruit notes of strawberry and plum up front that transition nicely to some earthy notes of toasted oak and blackberry midpalate. The tannins ar... Read More

  • Louis Bernard Côtes du Rhône Blanc 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This edition of the Louis Bernard Southern Rhone white blend is consistent with prior vintages - to wit, it has an appetizing nose of citrus fruit, kiwi, and perhaps peach while the flavours are toward the side of gooseberry and other tart white berries or fruit. Very palate cleansing and easy drinking for parties. Great value. 87 points. Read More

  • AOA, I've had fun doing some side by sides with Vacqueyras, Gigondas and Cotes du Rhone Villages, although Chateauneuf du Pape can be a bit of a different beast.To compliment EMarks post above we opened the Apsara Rivers Reach Sauv Blanc this evening. This is not about grapefruit but more subtle and balanced citrus and stone fruit.

  • Le Clos du Caillou Cotes du Rhone 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This Cotes du Rhone is extremely inviting with raspberry jam dominating the nose and good cherry-red colour; on entry there is a flood of raspberry, cherry and a hint of leather. Medium finish with unpronounced tannin. Very tasty if not complex, but well made and as it should be. 87 points. Read More
