Vivid orange. Ripe red berries, orange pith, nectarine and a hint of lavender on the deeply perfumed nose. Silky, seamless and broad on the palate, offering juicy cherry, raspberry and blood orange flavors energized by an undercurrent of juicy acidity.

Winery
Grenache noir 60%, Cinsault 15%, Clairette 9%, Syrah 5%, Grenache Blanc 5%, Carignan 3%, Mourvedre 1%, Picpoul 1%, Bourboulenc 1%. Different parcels are harvested at different times, according to their maturity; the Grenache is harvested a few days before the grapes used in the Cotes du Rhone in order to maximise acidity. Overnight maceration lends color and complexity without detracting fruit and freshness. The grapes are then pressed and blended before fermentation. Average No. cases/year: 20,000

Region: Rhone Valley

The southern French wine region of the Rhone Valley has been home to wine-makers for over two thousand years, with the first grapevines of the region being cultivated in around 600 BCE when the ancient Greeks arrived with their knowledge of viticulture and eagerness to produce more wine. Today, the region is famed around the world for the excellence of its produce, and has dozens of wineries making the most of the wide range of grape varietals which flourish there. In the northern sub-region, the continental climate and brisk winds coming off the Central Massif allow wineries to grow a smaller range of varietals – predominantly Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier, whereas the southern, more Mediterranean sub-region allows far more range. Here, dozens of varietals are grown for the production of white, red and rosé wines, all packed full of flavor and able to express the unique terroir they are grown on.

Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country.
