Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Côtes du Rhône is solid, with plenty of Bing cherry, menthol and pepper aromatics, medium-bodied richness, and a sweet, supple and voluptuous style on the palate. Made from a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault that was brought up all in concrete tank, it will drink nicely for 3-5 years.

Valérie Chaume-Arnaud always wanted to be a winemaker, and despite the protestations of her mother, she followed her heart and did just that. After studying oenology and viticulture, she took over the 5 hectares of vines belonging to her parents in 1987 and, along with her husband Phillipe, they continued to expand their holdings bit by bit until today where they now own over 30 hectares mainly in the Vinsobres appellation. Their son, Thibault, has joined his parents and is helping to take the property to new heights of excellence. They have been farming their estate organically since 2002 and moved to biodynamic in 2004 where they are now certified. Located about 45 minutes north and west of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Vinsobres makes wines of elegance and complexity with more Syrah than is typically found more to the south.

Cotes du Rhone Wine

Rhone, France

Typically thought of as a baby Chateauneuf-du-Pape, the term Côtes du Rhone actually doesn’t merely apply to the flatter outskirts of the major southern Rhône appellations, it also includes the fringes of well-respected northern Rhône appellations. White can be produced under the appellation name, but very little is actually made.

The region offers some of the best values in France and even some first-rate and age-worthy reds. Red varieties include most of the Chateauneuf-du-Pape varieties like Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault, and Counoise, as well as Carignan. White grapes grown include Grenache blanc, Roussanne and Viognier, among others.

With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre form the base of the classic Rhône Red Blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. Though they originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley, with some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in other countries. Somm Secret—Putting their own local spin on the Rhône Red Blend, those from Priorat often include Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
