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 »

  • JD, left my cell in a cab in Tokyo a dozen years back (that kind of booboo is ... rubble pieces--an obscure Cotes du Rhone, with steak and mustard greens and sauteed taters. Frankly it makes the Guigal version seem wondrous. And the Guigal CdR to me is like Heineken. It's a brand I can find in dozens of countries, is basically reliable so I kn... Read More

  • Gabriel Meffre Plan de Dieu Cotes du Rhone Villages "Saint-mapalis" 2012

    Snoothrank:

    This regular Southern Rhone offering has an excellent sweet cherry nose exuding the essence of Grenache; on the palate, there is more of the same with withering red fruit flavors, some stem-like acerbity and soft tannin on the finish. This is slightly above the usual café style in (say) Gigondas. 85- 86 points. Read More

  • Whoa! This really is a bit too generic for a thread; I realize that we have an opportunity for everyone to have a say, but a bit more dispersion might generate something more "pithy".But I actually don't care all that much, so let me say that I am drinking a very quaffable Cotes-du-Rhone white.  I believe, like many who participate here, in stro...

  • Gabriel Meffre Cotes du Rhone "Saint-Vincent" 2012

    Snoothrank:

    This "entry level" white Cotes-du-Rhone from a well-known Gigondas producer hits well above its price-point; I love the white garden flower nose and tisane-like notes (Roussanne) on the palate along with sweet pear. There is a youthful stem acerbity, but some cellaring may offset this feature of the wine. Very impressive for the price! 88 points. Read More

  • picked up the 2011 Quimay PN this morning and had a glass at 1.  Thought ... fine rendition of a Guigal Cotes du Rhone circa 1984..... So sad to have to taste through so many weeds hoping for a rose; or whatever mixed metaphor I'm trying for. &nbs Read More

  • Philippe Borlais Tete du Rhone Cotes du Rhone 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Very nice southern Rhone white blend of Rousanne, Marsanne, Grenache Blanc and Viognier. Ripe peach, some floral notes, medium acidity and a decent finish make for a good mid-week break for the usual white wine suspects. This is not overly complex but nicely balanced and easy to enjoy.
