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 Mont-Redon Côtes du Rhône Réserve 2012


    Drank pop and pour. Mixed red and black fruits on the nose. Fruity on the palate but not jammy. Medium acidity as well as a little tannins toward the finish. Second day fruit turned to sour cherry. Easy to drink wine. Read More

  • Feraud-Brunel Rasteau Cru des Cotes du Rhone 2012


    Cheerful red fruit aromas open on the nose showcasing raspberry, cherry and red currant with a touch of licorice and a splash of cream. Light red fruit on the palate is tight and focussed, with a light candied quality that is pleasant and well controlled acidity filling the midpalate. Flavors of ripe raspberry, cherry and a cedar character mingl... Read More

    Opened this nice, inexpensive Rhone white for a little apertif prior to heading to my 35 year service award dinner later this evening. Fairly simple with a nice floral nose, a bit fruit forward on the tongue with lemon, a touch of green melon, decent acidity and a medium finish which has a little cooking spice thing on the back of the throat. T... Read More

  • Coudoulet de Beaucastel Cotes du Rhone 2012


    Excellent Rhone red blend from the Perrin Family (of Beaucastel fame). Decanted for an hour or so and it still opened up more as the evening went on. On the nose there was lots of perfume at the start which blew off fairly quickly being replaced by notes of blackberry and blueberry. On initial taste the syrah really jumps out with layers of ripe... Read More
