Join us Sunday to sample some delicious Cotes du Rhone including the first rosé we’ve gotten from the 2015 vintage!

“The Perrin family continues to produce some of the top wines, at numerous price points, in the southern Rhône.”
The Wine Advocate

2015 Famille Perrin Cotes du Rhone Reserve Rose, FrancePerrin Rose
On Sale $8.99
2015 was a magnificent year in the south as well thanks to the mild, wet winter, followed by a relatively hot, dry spring. Following satisfactory flowering, rapid and regular ripening was assisted by rain that fell in August, producing berries rich in flavor. A blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mouvedre, and Cinsault, this is a classic rose for the region with pleasant strawberry, watermelon and tea notes.

2014 Domaine de Mongillon Cotes du Rhone Villages, France
On Sale $11.99…Lowest price in the country!!!
Visan which enjoys one of the higher vineyard altitudes in the Côtes du Rhône. The wines from Visan’s windswept vineyards are generally described as lively and fresh, presenting full ripeness and great balance.
Delectable cherry notes with hints of herbes de Provence, this wine shows good structure and is not at all heavy… an easy-drinking wine vinified in stainless steel and cement tanks to retain its fresh and fruity character.
Winery Notes

“Domaine Les Grands Bois is one of my go-to southern Rhône estates.”
The Wine Advocate

grands bois red2014 Domaine Les Grands Bois Cotes du Rhone “Cuvee Les Trois Soeurs”
On Sale $14.99
Coming for 30- to 60-year-old vines and a blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Carignan and 15% Syrah, Grands Bois’ 2014 Côtes du Rhône Cuvee les Trois Soeurs is a plump, medium to full-bodied, fruit-filled and sexy southern Rhône that’s loaded with notions of jammy blackberries, peppery herbs and licorice. It’s a smoking value and readers looking for a high quality, mid-week drinker that has loads of charm need to buy a case.
The Wine Advocate

Costières de Nîmes is an A.O.C. for wines near the ancient city of Nîmes close to the western Rhônedelta. Ventoux uses most of the same grapes found in the Cotes du Rhone.

2014 Chateau Cornut Costieres de Nimes, France
On Sale $10.99
Half Syrah, half Grenache… juicy plum and cherry flavors spiced with juicy roasted herbs and pepper, this wine is distinguished by its polished, savory texture and a full, rich finish. The wine is aged in stainless steel and cement. Most of the 200-plus acres in production are characterized by ancient riverbed soils, similar to what is found in Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
