Amazing Cotes du Rhone Values

We have a soft spot for the wines of the Rhone Valley. Lush and ripe, they seem to pair with just about anything. As a region, they don’t seem to have bad vintages either. The best part? The wines are so affordable!

charvin cote2013 Domaine Charvin “Á Coté” Vin de Pays Principaute d’Orange, Rhone, France
On Sale $15.99
This Grenache-Merlot from Peter Weygandt Selections way over-delivers. Flavors of plum and black cherry mix with notes of tobacco and lavender on the finish. A delightful everyday drinker from one of the best Chateauneuf producers!
Merch Notes

2014 Maison la Berthaude Cotes du Rhone
On Sale $12.99
Maison la Berthaude’s Côtes du Rhône is a beautiful garnet color. It leads with a lively nose of bright cherry, rosemary, and juniper spices. These notes continue on the palate, where they strike a great balance with the darker fruits that emerge.
Importer’s Notes

2013 Chateau Saint Jean Plan de Dieu Cotes du Rhone Villages
On Sale $12.99
Nestled in amongst the great communes of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, and Vacqueyras, Plan de Dieu was given the much sought after “Villages” appellation in 2005. This is a blend of 65% Grenache, 25% Syrah, and 10% Mourvedre, and has become our best selling Rhone wine. The average vine age is 35 years old, and like any southern Rhone, is a great red for the grill!
Merch Notes

2012 Domanine Montirius Gigondas “Terres des Ainees,” Southern Rhone
On Sale $29.99
Brilliant purple. Intense, sharply focused red berry, cherry pit and floral oil scents are complemented by deeper-pitched suggestions of licorice and musky herbs. Stains the palate with intense black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become weightier and spicier with aeration. Nicely plays power off vivacity, finishing smooth, spicy and long, with just a hint of fine-grained tannins.

2012 Domaine Montirius Vacqueyras “Garrigues,” Southern Rhone
On Sale $24.99
Vivid ruby. An intensely perfumed bouquet displays scents of fresh dark berries, pungent flowers and peppery spices, with a pipe tobacco quality building with air. Plush blueberry and black raspberry flavors are framed and lifted by tangy acidity. Finishes sweet and very long, with repeating spice and floral notes and smooth, harmonious tannins.
