RHONE

The Rhone Valley stretches almost 500 miles from North to South and is home to some of France's oldest vine plantings that were first cultivated in Roman Times. The region is split into Northern and Southern Rhone, both of which are very contrasting regions. From the North, the appellations of Hermitage and Cote Rotie produce some of the most famous and rare wines from Syrah, harvested from the very steep slopes carved into the hillsides. It is also here that the world's best Viognier is produced from the Condrieu appellation.

Heading to the warmer South and a sizeable 13 grape...

varieties are permitted in the appellations, with Grenache appearing as the predominant red varietal, most famously celebrated in the wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The range of grapes grown also provides refreshing alternatives to Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Pinot, Cabernet and Merlot.

When compared to the wines offered from France's other leading winemaking areas, the wines of the Rhone Valley are comparatively cheap. As well as offering plenty of diversity from North to South, the area therefore produces some of the best value wines in the world. This, coupled with an incredible run of excellent vintages over the past 10 years, makes the Rhone Valley one of the most exciting and attractive wine producing regions in the world.

TASTING NOTES

The cuvée is characterized by hints of floral and exotic fruits. The 2014 vintage, less hot than the previous ones, coupled with a harvest made with no excess of maturity allow this wine to keep acidity and freshness necessary for enjoying its very aromatic and rich flavours.

TASTING NOTES

A solid effort, the Grenache-dominated 2013 Côtes du Rhône reveals a healthy ruby color as well as Provençal notes of peppery herbs, saddle leather, licorice and ripe cherries. Medium-bodied, fresh and focused, it has lots to like and will have a decade of overall longevity

2013 Côte Rôtie Réserve, Domaine Ogier

Bottle 75cl £44.60 £36.20

Image of wine Côte Rôtie
BUY
TASTING NOTES

The 2011 Cote Rotie Classique, which included 20-30% stems in the fermentation, exhibits an opaque purple color along with a big, sweet bouquet of roasted meats, lard, graphite, cassis, black raspberries and a hint of black olives. Medium to full-bodied with terrific fruit purity, texture and length, this velvety 2011 should drink beautifully for the next 10-12 years.
