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.

Steeped plum and cherry compote notes are the main themes, though chestnut, sweet bay leaf, singed alder and tobacco flavors all make their presence known. Tar and licorice root accents underline the finish, giving this a toothy, old-school edge. A rock-solid, throwback-style Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Best from 2024 through 2038. 2,000 cases made, 400 cases imported. (James Molesworth)
JD9595 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/3/2021
The old vine cuvée, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Chante Le Merle Vieilles Vignes is 85% Grenache and 15% Mourvèdre brought up mostly in foudre, with a small portion in demi-muids. Its deep ruby hue is followed by a stunning array of ripe black raspberry and cherry fruits as well as ground pepper, Provençal garrigue, sandalwood, and exotic spices. Beautiful on the palate as well, it’s medium to full-bodied and has a layered, rich, concentrated mouthfeel, building, firm tannins, and outstanding length. It will benefit from 4–5 years of bottle age and shine for two decades. (Jeb Dunnuck)

Lastly, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Grenaches de Pierre is all Grenache from old vines and sandy soils brought up mostly in tank. A rock star Grenache-driven bouquet of kirsch liqueur, licorice, Provençal herbs, flowery incense, and spice gives way to a full-bodied 2019 with brilliant tannins, a seamless texture, no hard edges, and a great finish. Its balance as well as purity of fruit are just about off the charts, and this is heavenly Châteauneuf du Pape all the way. I think it will offer plenty of upfront charm, but smart money is on 2–3 years of bottle age and following it over the ensuing 10–15 years. (Jeb Dunnuck)

Also pure Southern Rhône goodness, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes has classy notes of red and blue fruits, candied orange, flowers, peppery garrigue, and loads of Asian spices. Beautifully textured, silky, and elegant on the palate, it has wonderful tannins, a notable sense of freshness, and a great, great finish. (Jeb Dunnuck)
SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 28, 2022
Ripe and expressive, with a lovely display of warmed plum, raspberry and blackberry puree flavors infused with red tea and anise notes. Features a solid mineral note that chimes on the finish, while a roasted apple wood frame keeps it all in line as the fruit takes an encore. Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah. Best from 2023 through 2036. 650 cases made, 200 cases imported. (James Molesworth)

Notes of blackberries, cassis, black olives, dried thyme and licorice. Medium-to full-bodied with creamy but structured tannins. Flavorful finish with strawberries. An excellent Gigondas here. Drinkable now, but better from 2023. (Zekun Shuai)
WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 11/1/2021
This Grenache-dominant blend (augmented by a small proportion of Syrah) highlights rich, roasted black-plum and cherry compote flavors accented by streaks of granite and gun flint. Voluptuous in texture and finishing on fine, furry tannins, it’s an immediately enjoyable wine with a spicy char and cinnamon finish. Best now–2026. (Anna Lee C. Iijima)
VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2023
Deep garnet. Displays aromas of cherry and blackberry, along with hints of woodsmoke and black pepper. Gently chewy and broad on the palate, offering bitter cherry, dark berry and licorice flavors and a hint of succulent herbs. Dusty tannins add grip to a long, spicy finish that echoes the cherry note. (Josh Raynolds)
