“If Burgundy and Bordeaux stand as two poles of French wine tradition, the Rhône represents the third, the great other.” - Jon Bonné, Author of The New French Wine
Southern Rhône, with its Mediterranean inland climate and flatter landscape brings wines of intense perfume and broad structures. Châteauneuf-du-Pape over shines many other appellations with its brand and its finest producers such as Château Rayas and Clos Des Papes. This is where Grenache has delivered its best expressions and where producers perfect the meticulous process of blending. The white wines for this region comes from Grenache Blanc, Clairette, and Roussanne, producing full bodied and textural wines that are worth cellaring for 10-15 years.
