Rhone Red Wines

A selection of red wines from the Rhone area of France.

The long and narrow Rhone valley is basically divided into two separate sub-regions the Northern Rhone and the Southern Rhone. The Northern Rhone produces it's red wines from the Syrah grape and it's whites from a combination or Roussane and Marsanne, and also Viognier. The Southern Rhone grows a much larger variety of red varietals, however the focus is much more on Grenache, with Syrah and Mourvedre taking second and third stage. Whites are also grown in the Southern Rhone with Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussane and a number of other obscure whites featuring. The Southern Rhone is also home to the famous Chateauneuf-du-Pape which is a blend of up to 19 varieties of wine grapes (ten red and nine white). 

Growers of particular note for Chateauneuf du Pape include Domaine La Solitude, Chateau Fortia and Domaine Grand Tinel. In the Gigondas area we recommend the wines from Domaine St. Damien who do a wonderful job of creating phenomenal wines from small yields with huge concentration and finesse.

The Lirac from Domaine des Cigalounes is one of our most popular red wines, it shows all that can be wonderful about this region with it's silky smooth texture and full bodied mouth feel.
