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 »

  • Chateau Unang Ventoux 2010

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in Kent [www.dickenshousewine.co.uk ] for £12.50. I bought it because I had previously had a bottle of their special 'La Gardy ' cuvee a couple of years ago and was impressed although this is a more basic offering. It is a blend of grenache,syrah and cinsault though I do not know in what proportions.I sta... Read More

  • Château Pesquié Quintessence 2009

    Snoothrank:

    The 2009 Quintessence is a fine wine with balanced, structured flavors of sage, eucalyptus and cherry and notes of smoke and spice on the nose. Elegant, smooth and still capable of a few more years in the bottle, this Ventoux is highly recommended - if you can find the vintage. Though somewhat different in style, better value than many Chateau... Read More
