Appellation of the month: Côtes du Rhône

With Domaine Pegau, we have a new class domain in our range. With its Châteauneuf-du-Pape which Parker already praised when he was still active, but also with two splendid Côtes du Rhône wines. That is why this month the Côtes du Rhône appellation will be highlighted.
It is one of the oldest appellations (created in 1937) and, after Bordeaux, the second largest appellation in France. Production is about 1.2 million hl, of which 97% red. The wines can come from six departments (Rhône, Loire, Ardèche, Gard, Drome and Vaucluse) and the red grape varieties here are grenache, syrah and mourvèdre. Certain secondary grape varieties may be added, but for a maximum of 20% of the assembly. Even white grapes may be added to the red wine, for a maximum of 5% of the total assembly. For the white wines mainly grenache blanc, clairette, marsanne, rousanne, bourboulenc and viognier are used.
Given the large production area, there is a very wide variety in terroirs, with both very generous wines with great power to very elegant, delicious wines of the lighter terroirs. That is why Dom. Pegau names the terroirs and cuves. Sétier focuses more on the finesse and delicacy, while Maclura is more focused on power and intensity. Besides these two splendid wines of Dom. Pegau, we have two other houses that produce beautiful biological wines, namely Dom. de La Mordorée and Dom. Paul Jaboulet Aîné. Of the latter domain we also have a white and rosé Côtes du Rhône in our range. Quickly discover these everyday wines and enjoy our promotion!
