Great Article about Wines from the Southern Côtes du Rhône

This is an unusual post for me because I am not including any pictures or personal experience. I just want to tell you that there is a very good article in the New York Times about wines from the Southern Côtes du Rhône especially wines made in Rasteau and Cairanne. These villages are rising stars in the Southern Côtes du Rhône and are very close to Sablet.

I have written previously about our visits to Cairanne and Rasteau and to several of the domaines mentioned in this article. If you are going to be in Sablet or in the Southern Côtes du Rhône, go visit these villages and do some tasting. If you are looking for new wines, look for wines from Cairanne and Rasteau, especially wines from the 2010 vintage.

Thank you friend Bruce from Villedieu for letting me know about the article. Bonne journée mes amis et à bientôt. Have a great day, chat soon!

  2. Thanks for sharing this Michel, can't wait to visit these villages and go tasting as well.

  3. Diane - The wines from Cairanne and Rasteau are very good wines and the article provides a very good overview for those who didn't know about them before.

    Tuula - A visit to the these villages to taste wines is definitely worth while as the best wineries are open for tasting without appointment.
