The Côtes du Rhône appellation applies to red, white, and rosé wines from vineyards throughout the Rhône Valley, comprising about 90% of the total production of the region. Quality and style can vary widely. By selecting and blending cuvées from a number of top growers, Marcel Guigal produces exceptional examples of all three wines.
The Côtes du Rhône Rosé is an excellent example of the appellation. Produced by saigné from Grenache, Syrah, and Cinsault, this dry rosé is fruity and rich with an intriguing and appetizing bitterness on the finish. There are no better wines to drink with informal buffets, summer outdoor meals, and spicy foods.
