Domaine Vallot Côtes du Rhône '19

Southern Rhône

Domaine Vallot Côtes du Rhône '19

There is nothing like a really great bottle of Côtes du Rhône. For Francophiles like myself, it evokes memories of dinners in a small bistro, of grilling with friends, of my first wine trip to France visiting the starkly beautiful vineyards of the Southern Rhône. 

This absolutely delicious Côtes du Rhône brought back many of those fond memories.

In their fifth generation of production, Domaine Vallot is a leader in quality in the appellation of Vinsobres. The appellation which first gained AOC status in 2006 sits in the northern part of the Southern Rhône, north of appellations such as Gigondas and Vacqueryas. High altitude vineyards are planted in rocky, limestone rich soil. 

Anaïs Vallot has take over from her father François, and has continued with his rigorous farming practices, working organically since the 1990's and Demeter certified Biodynamic since 2007. 

Anaïs leads off her production with an incredibly fresh, friendly (and downright gulp-able!) Côtes-du-Rhône red, which is a field blend of six grapes all picked and vinified together from the plots surrounding the winery. The vines are an average age of 40 years old, planted in activated calcareous limestone soil. The field blend consists of grenache, syrah, mourvèdre, cinsault, clairette, and bourboulenc, with fermentation and aging in traditional cement vats.

This offers beautiful aromas of wild strawberry, dark cherry, and savory spice notes. This really glides across the palate, offering the depth you come to expect from a good Côtes du Rhône with the freshness that the wines of Vinsobres can offer.

A great Côtes du Rhône is an unpretentious wine meant to be enjoyed with food, and this accomplishes it on every level. Keep this in mind for your Thanksgiving dinner table, and for everyday drinking.
