Winemaker's Notes

The Côtes du Rhône-Villages represents the level between the regional appellation and the village appellation. Comprising seventy-two communities, this region became an appellation in 1967.

As an AOC, the wines of the Côtes du Rhône-Villages must conform to certain rules outlined by the INAO, or the Institute Nationale d'Appellation Controllee. These include requiring that the main varietal, Grenache, be blended with Cinsault, Syrah or Mourvedre. The minimum degree of alcohol is higher while the maximum grape yield allowed is smaller than the regional Cote du Rhone.

The soils here vary from red clay with rocks, sandstone covered in gravel, to lumpy sand. The wines produced here have can be of various styles: ample and powerful or light and fruity.

Critical Acclaim

"A soft, juicy, friendly style, with dark plum, toast and cocoa notes, followed by a fleshy, easygoing finish. Drink now."
