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 »

  • I probably would've chosen this image instead. ... represents the Guigal Cotes du Rhone of the avocado world. It's good, and fatty and grows all year around on lower, plump, easy-to-harvest trees. The Nabal above is like a 1989 Beaucastel or better yet an '89 Chaves Hermitage. The best tasting avocado I've ever encountered. Note the size using ... Read More

  • Domaine du Pere Caboche Cotes du Rhone 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Fresh and slightly creamy on the nose with lovely aromas of blueberry and raspberry candy framed by hints of hay, paprika and ink along with a light stewed tomato note. Soft and easy on the palate, this shows off that slight stewy tomato note early on the palate but the savory aspects, along with dried floral tones and herbal notes, help to fram... Read More

    A touch leafy on the nose then filling with dark raspberry/blackberry aromas along with lovely spicy, herbal base notes and a touch of licorice. Showing a hint of flesh on entry, this fills out gently in the mouth with soft tannins and good supporting acidity supporting clear and fresh red currant and blackberry flavors. Theres a little inheren... Read More

  • Pierre Henri Morel Signargues Cotes du Rhone Villages 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Reticent on the nose with clear notes of candied strawberry and blackberry fruits wrapped in hints of leather, dried herbs, grilled meat and licorice. Smooth and moderately rich in the mouth, this really could use a bit more acidity for my palate, though many will appreciate the wines seamless character and slightly weight feel. On the palate on...

  • Château Beauchene Cotes du Rhone Grande Reserve 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A hint of leathery funk greets the nose followed by lovely layered aromas of dried mushroom, baking spice, candied violet, strawberry, juniper and beef blood. A little weighty and plush in the mouth, this feels just a bit clumsy while it delivers light if fresh flavors of red fruits, raspberry and strawberry with hints of rhubarb and almost a be...

  • Marrenon Grand Toque Luberon 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Tight and focused on the nose with Syrah driven aromas of blue fruit, fine gently meaty spice notes hints of warm red fruit, cracked pepper and baking spice. Lighter bodied in the mouth than the nose suggest, this shows a lovely transparency on the palate with flavors that like the aromas, are driven by the slightly spicy and gamy nature of Syra...
