The red Cotes du Rhone from Domaine Saint The Côtes-du-Rhône is made from old vines at Sablet and Seguret, technically this is a Côtes-du-Rhône Villages but Meffre prefers to have only one Villages wine--from his vineyard at Rasteau. Certainly the quality of the Côtes-du-Rhône is that of a villages. It has a deep color, plenty of fruit and a richness that one would never expect in a straight Côtes-du-Rhône.
Winemaking is very traditional at Saint Gayan. Picking by hand. No destemming. Only light 'foulage'; about half the grapes stay intact. A long vinification in cement vats. Maceration lasts three to four weeks. Malolactic fermentation followed by long ageing in vat.
"A good value, the 2007 Cotes du Rhone is one of the finest examples of this cuvee I have tasted recently. Framboise, cherry, herb, and spice box scents jump from the glass of this elegant, medium-bodied, richly fruity 2007. It begs for consumption over the next 2-3 years."
