from Master Sommelier, Emily Wines


We continue our celebration of Paris and French culture with our Côtes du Rhône red, which is juicy, with flavors of ripe red cherry and black plum complemented by notes of black pepper, lavender, and sage. Although it works well with French bistro classics like lamb sausage, this wine is equally at home with herb-grilled chicken from your backyard barbecue.


Like Côtes du Rhône white wines, the reds are also required to be blends. Grenache brings ripe red fruit flavor and body, while Syrah adds notes of black pepper and tannins. Marselan, Mourvèdre, and Carignan add color, richness, and herbal aromas, respectively. Together, they create a well balanced wine that is juicy, spicy, and very food friendly.


The hills surrounding the Rhône River have been planted with wine grapes for millennia, first by the Greeks, then by the Romans, and finally by the French. This long history of grape growing is partly due to the region’s climate: Warm, sunny days ripen the grapes and, strong winds sweep away vineyard pests. The Romans loved the region’s wines and carved out massive terraces along the riverbanks, cutting into raw granite hillsides to create more space to plant grapes. In fact, Rhône wines from the first century were the first internationally sought-after French wines!
