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 »

  • +1 on the St. Cosme.  That immediately came to mind when BLM mentioned Cotes du Rhone.I'll put a shameless plug in for Washington wines.  We have lots of good quality choices in the 15-20 dollar price range.  The problem is with distribution.  Many of our wineries are too small to have significant distribution outside the state.Here is a label t...

  • Gabriel Meffre Plan de Dieu Côtes du Rhône Villages "Saint Mapalis" 2015

    Snoothrank:

    The 2015 Plan de Dieu (St. Mapalis) from Meffre is even better than the previous vintage with a sage-infused cherry nose and gritty, wild cherry on the palate. Slightly rustic and invigorating, this wine makes for exceptional value. 89 points+And, as I am not often wont to say, "a steal"... Read More

  • Gabriel Meffre Cotes-du-Rhone Blanc "Saint-vincent" 2015

    Snoothrank:

    A great aperitif for winter or late fall parties (Thanksgiving comes immediately to mind) that is tasty, easy quaffing and good for the budget. That describes this Gabriel Meffre Cotes-du-Rhone Blanc to a tee...with an orange rind and tisane nose and a follow-up panoply of flavours that include ginger, peach, honey and herbal tea. Finish is on... Read More
