Introduction

Without question, Côtes du Rhône is one of France’s most important – and diverse – appellations. Encompassing over 30,000 hectares of vineyards in the northern and southern Rhône, it is the region’s leading exporter of premium labels that don’t cost the earth; red, white, and rosé wines all fly under the AOC banner. In the 20th century, however, wide quality variations and some heavy over-production damaged the area’s reputation in the eyes of consumers. But, thanks to hefty amounts of capital and raw talent, this bourgeoning appellation now offers a treasure trove of delicious wines and original flavors. Reliability has become its middle name.
