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 »

  • E. Guigal Cotes du Rhone Rose 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Candied watermelon and strawberry aromas with hints of cherry on the nose. This is juicy and chunky in the mouth with mostly red fruit character of cherry and strawberry and hints of baking spice. There's a zip of good acidity as well towards the refreshing approachable finish. Read More

  • J.L. Chave'Mon Couer' Cotes-du-Rhone 2014

    Snoothrank:

    2nd in the Flight; Interesting aromas of Barbecue and roasted Green Chile. Dry, but soft in the mouth with well balanced Tannins and Acidity. Becomes more nuanced as it sits in the glass, with more herb and earth. Not bad at all $10 a glass, but retail is $21. Very surprising a 2014 so well rounded and enjoyable. Definitely a 'go to' wine out an... Read More

  • Le Coq Bleu Cotes du Rhone 2014

    Snoothrank:

    A Tasting Room quarterly selection. Pale Ruby Red medium opacity in the glass. Opens with a bit of baking yeast, then a dusty cherry plum; then cranberry and baking spice.Finishes with a bit vanilla, Most of these carry over to the palate, but more earth, mushroom, and black berries. Medium high Tannins and Acidity that smooth out after sitting ... Read More
