    Domaine Les Aphillanthes, France
    Domaine Les Aphillanthes Winery Image
    Domaine Les Aphillanthes from Travaillan, just northwest of Gigondas, has the special capability of jolting you into appreciation of the Côtes du Rhône region. Grower and winemaker Daniel Boulle’s terroir driven southern Rhône wines are exemplary models of perfect fruit and minute yields. The roots of their vines grow as deep as 30 meters, (about 100 feet)! His approach is to focus on the quality of the fruit in the vineyards together with minimal intervention in the winery. Fermentation is in concrete vats; the wine is moved about by gravity. No filtration. Daniel, the 4th generation at the Domaine, inherited the estate’s 10 hectares in 1987 and has increased it by acquiring exceptional parcels, inclduding one in Rasteau planted in 1921.
    Since 2003, the estate has followed Biodynamic principles and since 2007, the Domaine has been certified as Biodynamic (Biodivin) and Organic (ECOCERT). Deemed by Robert Parker as "one of the finest estates in the southern Rhone, making which may be the richest Côtes du Rhône I have tasted." The Boulles do not try to emulate other growers. Terroir expression and balanced fruit qualities can be felt in all Aphillanthes’ wines.

    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.

    Full-bodied and flavorful, white Rhône blends originate from France’s Rhône Valley. Today these blends are also becoming popular in other regions. Typically some combination of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier form the basis of a white Rhône blend with varying degrees of flexibility depending on the exact appellation. Somm Secret—In the Northern Rhône, blends of Marsanne and Roussanne are common but the south retains more variety. Marsanne, Roussanne as well as Bourboulenc, Clairette, Picpoul and Ugni Blanc are typical.
