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.

Le Méal, a broader swathe of the hill at a high elevation (150-200 metres) facing slightly more Easterly, takes its name from the old French word meaning ¿the best¿. The land of sandy gravel, combined with Syrah vines over 50 years old, give a wine characterisedby a supple character, fine balance and deeply intense fruit aromas. Yields are again exceptionally...

The eponymous vineyard grows on very poor granitic and shallow soils surrounding the chapel of ¿Ermite¿ at the top of the hill of Hermitage. The age of the vines averages over 80 years. This wine is the most individual statement in the Hermitage appellation, and the most prized for followers of M. Chapoutier¿s grandest of crus. L¿Ermite traditionally produces the...

This wine comes from ¿lieu-dit¿ Les Bessards, a fine layer of sediment lying on granite slopes. Its 65 year old vines are positioned at a lower altitude band of the Hermitage hill, at approximately 130 metres, above the ruins of a stone house that gives it its name. With tiny yields (20 hl/ha), this is perhaps the most complex of...

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.
