The appellation of Côtes du Rhône, situated along
the Rhône river, produces mainly red wines, but its whites and its
rosés are also remarkably flavorful. This vineyard, which is two
thousand years old, boasts a palette of terrains, soils, and climates that
together to create authentic and distinctive wines.
The Côtes du Rhône appellation must follow very strict guidelines
concerning grape varieties, yield, and production methods, which make it
an appellation known the world over. The very wide range of wines comprises,
first of all, the "crus," including those of Lirac and Tavel
of the Gard Provençal; the local appellations that have the right
to feature the name of the town on their label, such as Laudun, Chusclan,
and Saint Gervais; and finally, the regional appellation that certifies
the quality of a given land. Whether light and fruity or full-bodied and
intense, Côtes du Rhône wine surprises you with its range,
its strong flavors, and its diversity.
