Where It's From

Appellation / Cotes du Rhone

View more wines from Cotes du Rhone

Cotes du Rhone is the official name of the Rhone Valley. If you see it on a bottle of wine, that typically means it comes from the southern half of the Rhone Valley (since most Northern Rhones are classified as "Cru" and sold at higher prices under the names of their villages). The Cotes du Rhone appellation is best suited to red wines, and that's where a bulk of the area's wine production lies.

Region / Rhone

View more wines from Rhone

Located along the path of the Rhone River, the Rhone wine region in southeastern France is beautiful and very productive. It's typically divided into two sub-regions, the Northern Rhone and Southern Rhone, and the wines produced in these sub-regions are very different from one another.

The southern Rhone is warm and dry, and produces robust, full-flavored red wines, oftentimes blends with Grenache used as the primary grape. Chateauneuf-du-Pape is without question the most celebrated town for wine production in the Southern Rhone region.

Meanwhile, the Northern Rhone features a cooler climate and steep-sloped vineyards. Syrah is the dominant red grape, and the wines are typically tannic, deeply colored, and highly acidic wines (which leads them to get better with age).

Country / France

View more wines from France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.

While not yet bottled, the 2016 Vacqueyras Les Ceps D’Or appears to be one of the top wines from the appellation. Made from mostly Grenache, with a splash of Mourvèdre, it boasts sensational notes of red fruits, flowers, forest floor, and hints of limestone-like minerality. This medium-bodied, finesse-driven effort has more than a passing resemblance to a Grand Cru Red Burgundy and does everything right. It’s going to drink beautifully for over a decade. (Jeb Dunnuck)
VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Feb 2020
Brilliant ruby. Fragrant aromas of fresh red and blue fruits, spicecake and candied flowers, along with an emerging smoky element. Silky and seamless in texture, offering concentrated and surprisingly energetic black raspberry and boysenberry flavors braced by a core of juicy acidity. Closes sweet, gently tannic and impressively long, delivering emphatic red fruit and a clinging floral pastille note.
RP90+90–92+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Aug 2018
The prospective blend of the 2016 Vacqueyras les Ceps d’Or contained an elevated level of carbon dioxide, which made it difficult to evaluate. I expect it will perform better from bottle. It’s full-bodied and concentrated, with a rich mouthfeel and complex spice notes layered over ripe fruit.

The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape boasts scents of roses, raspberries and mint and follows those up on the palate with flavors of cherry, rosemary and thyme. It’s full-bodied and creamy in texture, pairing a lot of green notes with balanced red fruit and a long, silky finish.
VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2019
Limpid ruby-red. Ripe red and blue fruits, candied flowers and a hint of garrigue on the fragrant nose. Juicy and energetic on the palate, offering gently sweet raspberry and boysenberry flavors sharpened by a snap of spicy white pepper. Supple tannins add gentle grip to a long, spicy finish that echoes the blue fruit note. Aged in a combination of concrete vats and demi-muids.

Bottled in March, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape (80% Grenache) was brought up in a mix of concrete (mostly) and foudre. It gives up sensational notes of kirsch liqueur, white flowers, graphite, candle wax, and spice. This rich, full-bodied, yet seamless Châteauneuf-du-Pape has a powerful, balanced style that’s going to keep for 15–20 years. It’s a gorgeous wine. (Jeb Dunnuck)
RP93+93–95 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Oct 2017
The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape weighs in at 15.5% alcohol by volume yet doesn’t show any heat. Blueberries, spice, cherries and stone fruit come in full-bodied, velvety waves and finish rich and long. This looks to be a stellar effort while the fruit lasts.
VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Jul 2018
Brilliant red. Highly perfumed red fruit liqueur, potpourri and Moroccan spice scents show impressive vivacity and focus. Sappy, alluringly sweet and precise, offering palate-staining raspberry and floral pastille flavors and a hint of spicecake. Closes very long and smooth, displaying excellent focus, even tannins and emphatic, floral-tinged persistence.

A whiff of violet introduces ripe but pristine blackberries and cherries in this fleshy but delightful blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. It’s sleek and silky on the palate yet anchored by firm granite tones and fine, taut tannins that reverberate through an extended finish. Irresistible already it is likely to gain finesse and depth well through 2035.
SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - May 31, 2020
Densely fruited, with layers of red currant, raspberry and plum fruit paste flavors that stretch out slowly, unveiling notes of cedar, garrigue, brick dust and incense. A warm stone detail drives the finish, accented by well-buried acidity that keeps all the elements fresh and defined within the old-school rubric. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Best from 2021 through 2036. 3,700 cases made, 800 cases imported. (James Molesworth)
JS9191 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Wednesday, August 29, 2018
Mellow, rich aromas of red fruit and berry pastry with garrigue, raspberry liqueur and sweet, berry cream. The palate has a suave, long and succulent core of powerful tannins. Long and dense. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
JD9191 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 8/28/2018
A blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre brought up in a mix of stainless steel and old barrels, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Clos du Roi is a ripe, sexy wine. Dried cherries, blackberries, loamy soil, and hints of cured meats give way to a rounded, supple, elegant 2016 that has moderate tannin and good length. Drink it over the coming decade. (Jeb Dunnuck)
VN9191 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2019
Vivid ruby. Highly perfumed red fruit scents are complicated by suggestions of garrigue, licorice and white pepper. Spicy and focused on the palate, displaying vibrant raspberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors along with a building smoky nuance. Finishes with resonating spiciness, a suggestion of Chambord and youthfully chewy tannins.

Enticing, with bright, engaging raspberry, cherry and red currant fruit infused with gently roasted sandalwood and apple wood, garrigue and licorice root notes. A swath of tobacco underscores the finish, giving this an old-school hint. Best from 2020 through 2040. 2,500 cases made, 550 cases imported. (James Molesworth)
RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Aug 2018
Made from 50- to 80-year-old vines, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape offers tremendous purity for an entry-level cuvée. Pine and rosemary notes accent bright cherry fruit in this full-bodied, creamy textured and lush example of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The assemblage is 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre. Enjoy it over the next decade.

Green-tinged straw. High-pitched, mineral-driven aromas of fresh orchard fruits and lemon balm, plus a touch of white flowers in the background. Taut and distinctly lively on the palate, displaying densely packed orange, pear and nectarine flavors and a deeper note of honey that arrives with air. Finishes extremely long and precise, with resonating florality, good clarity and nervy, mineral lift.
JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Friday, October 11, 2019
This has superbly fresh, apricot and white-peach aromas with gentle ginger and spice notes. Very floral and pure. The palate has a smooth array of peaches and apricots and super fresh and very discreet oak. Matured in demi-muid and concrete eggs. Succulent finish. Drink now.
JD9292 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - December 12, 2019
White flowers, orange blossom, and hints of honeyed spice emerge from the 2018 Condrieu Les Grands Amandiers, another beautifully textured, medium-bodied, concentrated, yet straight and focused white. It’s balanced, soft, and forward, yet superb. (Jeb Dunnuck)

JD94+94–96 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - December 12, 2019
The 2,000-case 2018 Hermitage Maison Bleue comes from the eastern side of the appellation and is a much more fleshy, opulent wine compared to the more mineral-laced La Chapelle. Jammy blackberry and cassis fruit, notes of ground herbs, graphite, and violets, full-bodied richness, beautiful concentration, and a great finish all make for a compelling Hermitage. It’s going to benefit from 4–5 years of bottle age. (Jeb Dunnuck)
VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
Inky violet color. Deeply pitched cherry, blueberry, licorice and candied violet aromas are complemented by hints of baking spices, incense and smoky minerals. Succulent and penetrating on the palate, offering deeply concentrated black/blue fruit, spice and floral pastille flavors that become more energetic as the wine slowly stretches out. Weighty and broad yet lively as well, finishing with sharp delineation, mounting tannins and outstanding, floral- and mineral-driven persistence.
JS9494 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, August 3, 2020
A red with impressive depth and richness, yet it’s always in focus and balanced with very polished, fine tannins that tie up the berry, smoke and chocolate flavors, not to mention tar. It’s full-bodied, yet creamy and round-textured. Drink in 2022 and onwards.
RP93+93–95 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 19th Dec 2019
The 2018 Hermitage La Maison Bleue offers up aromas of mocha, raspberries and a hint of black olive. It’s full-bodied, velvety and plush, with a finish that’s marked by hints of maple syrup and a slightly open-knit quality. It should drink well for at least a decade after release.

This is two-thirds marsanne and one-third roussanne and it sees some demi-muid elevage. Very fresh, peach and pear aromas with a focused, ripe and juicy palate that wields glycerol and smooth fruit flesh. Long finish with pears, white peaches and melon. Very even. Drink or hold.
VN9494 pts. - Vinous - May 2020
Diaphanous gold. Expressive, mineral-tinged orchard and pit fruits on the highly perfumed nose, with floral and lemon curd nuances building in the glass. Shows very good depth as well as energy to the sappy, mineral-accented tangerine, Anjou pear and honey flavors, which steadily tighten up through the midpalate. The floral element comes back on the lively, focused finish, sweetened by a discreet honey accent.

Lavish yet impeccably light on its feet, this Muscat vin doux naturel offers intensely ripe, concentrated tangerine and honeysuckle notes offset by whiffs of fresh, green herb. It’s a silky, sweet wine anchored by a lingering thread of minerality and integrated alcohol. Enjoy now–2024.
