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 »

  • Perrin & Fils Rasteau l'Andeol 2011


    This village wine from the Cotes-du-Rhone is always quite consistent - although a bit thin this time round. Very Grenache - on the lesser side of life with light colour, leafy cherry flavour and little power for a village wine. No comparison with the 2009 and 2010, but good everyday wine for the patio - without coarseness - but lacking in fruit... Read More

  • Xavier Vignon Cote du Rhone Rouge 2010


    This Xavier Wine I am enjoying tonight was tasted at Marquis Wines Vancouver BC served by the blender of the wine (when he was in the south of France), John Clerides, proprietor. I don't know John well, but he's a clever guy: the eclectic blend of minor grape varieties along with the usual Grenache base is delicious - with a twist; the bright c... Read More

  • Famille Perrin Cotes du Rhone Reserve 2012


    flows very nicely off of the palate yet something seems flat and earthy so this makes it mildly less inviting to think a bout another bottle. Read More

  • Cuvee de 3 Messes Basses Blanc Rhone Valley France 2014


    There's a bit of green melon on the nose, on the tongue is some lemon pith, a touch of lime sherbet, decent acidity and a medium finish which has a little cooking spice thing on the back of the throat. The 2014 is a blend of 50% Clairette and 50% Grenache Blanc. Still a great QPR for around $14. Read More

  • Gabriel Meffre Plan de Dieu Cotes du Rhone Village "Saint-mapalis" 2013


    This elegant, modestly priced wine from the Plan de Dieu region of the southern Rhone valley is perfect café fare. Scented with cherries and crushed cranberry plus a touch of garrigue (or maybe sage), it is inviting. Entry is gentle, somewhat light (thinner than 2012) and refreshingly clean. This is a real find for the student or the person on... Read More
