Find the Best Rhone Valley Wines

The French wine region known as the Rhone straddles the Rhone river valley from just south of Lyon and ending 125 miles later just south of Avignon near the Mediterranean. There are well over 20 grape varieties used in the production of Rhone wines with each appellation having rules permitting the use of only certain grapes. The major red grape variety in Southern Rhone wines is Grenache followed by Syrah, Carignan, and Mourvedre. The major white grape varieties in white wines of the Rhone are Clairette, Grenache Blanc, Ugni Blanc, Bourboulenc, Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier.

The major appellations (or AOC's) in the Southern Rhone wine region are: Cotes du Rhone (the lowest classification and allowed for use in all 171 communes in the Northern and Southern Rhone), Cotes du Rhone Villages, Cotes du Rhone Villages (with the name of the particular village placed after), Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Vacqueyras, Rasteau, and Gigondas. Most of the red wines in the south are dominated by the Grenache grape. The sweet wines called Beaumes de Venise or Muscat de Beaumes de Venise, and dry rose; wines of Tavel should also be noted.

The major appellations (or AOC's) in the Northern Rhone are: Condrieu, Cornas, Cote-Rotie, Crozes-Hermitage, Hermitage, and Saint-Joseph. The major red grape variety in all Northern Rhone wines is Syrah.

  2. Domaine Grand Veneur Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes

    2009 / 750 ml. | Item#31896

    WE9595 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 7/1/2012
    A prodigious effort, the 2009 Vieilles Vignes from Grand Veneur includes a whopping 40% Mourvèdre in the blend (there’s also 10% Syrah, with the balance being Grenache), which no doubt accounts for its dark flavor profile. This is a full-bodied, lushly textured, expansive wine, with a finish that seems to go on forever. Approachable now, it should age well for 10–12 years at least.
    RP93+93–95 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2010
    The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (a cuvee that was first made in 2006) is a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre and 20% Syrah, all aged in new oak casks. Despite all the new oak, its influence is marginal. Some toasty notes are present, but the wine is very full-bodied with extraordinarily intense aromas and flavors of creme de cassis, kirsch, lavender, licorice and hints of lead pencil shavings and smoke. Dense, full-bodied, tannic and super intense, this is a massive 2009 that begs for 4–5 years of cellaring. It should drink well for 20–25 years thereafter.

  3. Bosquet des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape A la gloire de mon Grand-Père

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#56039

    JD96+96+ pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/3/2021
    Almost all Grenache, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape A La Gloire De Mon Grand-Père comes from the La Gardiole lieu-dit and was aged 80% in demi-muids and 20% in foudre. Its deep purple/plum color is followed by a stunning array of black cherry, blackberry, and ripe strawberry fruits as well as candied flowers, orange blossom, and toasted spice. As with the old vine cuvée, the tannins have a firm edge and it’s built with short-term cellaring in mind, yet the purity is brilliant, I love its balance, and this is just a stunning Grenache that’s going to have two decades of pure pleasure giving.
    SP9696 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 31, 2021
    This is packed, featuring juicy and energetic raspberry, blackberry and dark plum pate de fruit flavors wrapped in licorice root, black tea, singed juniper and incense notes. Everything knits tightly through the finish, with the underlying freshness extending to a lengthy finish as the juniper note leaves a mouthwatering echo. Serious, old school style. Best from 2024 through 2038. 1,500 cases made, 275 cases imported.

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#56809

    SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Web only – 2022
    A big-boned Côtes du Rhône, with warm fig and sappy black fruit and licorice cascading across the palate.

Drink now through 2025. 5,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported.
    JD9090 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/3/2021
    As to the reds, the 2019 Côtes Du Rhône Maclura offers plenty of dark fruits, black olive, and peppery garrigue in its rich, mouth-filling, full-bodied style. It’s a classic, pleasure-bent 2019 to drink over the coming 3–5 years.

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#55106

    VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2021
    Shimmering ruby-red. Expressive, smoke- and mineral-accented red fruit and floral scents show fine definition and pick up a spicy accent with air. Sappy and penetrating on the palate, offering appealingly sweet raspberry, cherry and candied lavender flavors that deepen slowly through the midpalate. Shows solid, spicy thrust on a long, smooth finish framed by velvety tannins. This is an exceptional example of an entry-level Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 31, 2021
    Melted licorice, plum sauce, cherry purée and black tea notes all meld into a silky, suave and seamlessly-textured wine that leaves a subtle echo of lavender at the very end. Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2032. 8,304 cases made, 692 cases imported.
    JD91+91–93 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 10/6/2020
    Starting with the classic cuvee, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape is a sexy, seamless 2019 that has lots of black raspberry and cherry fruits, loads of peppery garrigue and spice, medium to full-bodied richness, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It’s smoking classic cuvée to enjoy over the coming 10–15 years.

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#55899

    VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2021
    Full, vivid ruby. Expansive, mineral- and herb-accented raspberry and cherry aromas are complemented by hints of succulent herbs and flowers. Concentrated yet lithe on the palate, offering sappy, finely detailed red and dark berry flavors and powerful back-end lift. The long, spicy finish features resonating floral and red berry notes and smooth tannins that emerge slowly and steadily.
    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Web only – 2021
    Kirsch, linzer and cherry purée notes stream through in this vibrant and expressive offering, displaying a lovely, silky feel from start to finish. Light iron and shiso hints filter through at the very end, adding range and subtle persistence. Drink now through 2034. 1,000 cases made, 400 cases imported.
    JD9292 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/3/2021
    Moving to the classic 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape, this little gem should be snatched up by readers, as it’s as textbook as they come. Ruby/plum-hued, with a medium to full-bodied, round, elegant mouthfeel, it has ample red and black fruits, notes of peppery herbs and licorice, supple tannins, and a great finish. A wonderful 2019, it will have two decades of longevity.

    JD9292 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/3/2021
    Bottled just a month before this tasting, the 2019 Côtes Du Rhône Coudoulet De Beaucastel is showing brilliantly, with a rich, medium to full-bodied, textured style that displays the ripe, sexy style of the vintage. Offering lots of both black and blue fruits as well as truffly earth and garrigue notes, it can be enjoyed any time over the coming 10–12 years.
    SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Web only – 2021
    Solidly built, with a core of steeped plum and blackberry fruit that pumps along nicely, supported by dark licorice and warm earth notes, with flashes of worn leather. Offers some eye-opening stuffing for its designation. Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Cinsault. Drink now through 2029. 5,000 cases made, 200 cases imported.

  11. Domaine de Cristia Châteauneuf-du-Pape Renaissance

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#46229

    SP9696 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 28, 2018
    This has an intense core of crushed plum, raspberry and boysenberry fruit flavors, draped with melted licorice notes and backed by a wave of warm fruitcake. Hedonistic for sure, but accents of anise, violet and singed apple wood dart around, adding extra facets of intrigue to hold your attention. Grenache and Mourvèdre. Best from 2020 through 2040. 600 cases made.
    RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Oct 2017
    The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Renaissance is a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre. It’s a super ripe and plush wine, loaded with dark cherries, cola and baking spices like cinnamon and nutmeg (the Mourvèdre component is aged in oak). With its soft tannins and touch of warmth on the finish, it should be consumed relatively young.
    VN92+92–94 pts. - Vinous - Mar 2017
    Deep ruby. Vibrant aromas of blackberry, cherry pit, licorice, potpourri and spicecake carry a smoky mineral overtone. Juicy, concentrated and sharply focused, offering dark berry liqueur, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors that show excellent clarity and mineral lift. Impressively lithe for its power, finishing with building tannins, resonating spiciness and outstanding persistence.

  12. Domaine de Marcoux Châteauneuf-du-Pape

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#47667

    JD9595 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - August 28, 2018
    Bottled in March, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape (80% Grenache) was brought up in a mix of concrete (mostly) and foudre. It gives up sensational notes of kirsch liqueur, white flowers, graphite, candle wax, and spice. This rich, full-bodied, yet seamless Châteauneuf-du-Pape has a powerful, balanced style that’s going to keep for 15–20 years. It’s a gorgeous wine.
    RP93+93–95 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Oct 2017
    The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape weighs in at 15.5% alcohol by volume yet doesn’t show any heat. Blueberries, spice, cherries and stone fruit come in full-bodied, velvety waves and finish rich and long. This looks to be a stellar effort while the fruit lasts.
    VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Jul 2018
    Brilliant red. Highly perfumed red fruit liqueur, potpourri and Moroccan spice scents show impressive vivacity and focus. Sappy, alluringly sweet and precise, offering palate-staining raspberry and floral pastille flavors and a hint of spicecake. Closes very long and smooth, displaying excellent focus, even tannins and emphatic, floral-tinged persistence.

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#56035

    JD92+92+ pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/3/2021
    The classic release from this great estate, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Julien Barrot is 60% Grenache, 19% Mourvèdre, and the rest Syrah and other permitted varieties. Black cherries, blackberries, graphite, peppery garrigue, and ample chalky minerality define this beauty, and it’s medium to full-bodied, with a wonderful mid-palate, building structure, and outstanding length. It’s a great 2019 that needs 2–4 years of bottle age to integrate its structure but will have 10–15+ years of prime drinking.

  14. Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape Chaupin

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#54919

    WE9898 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 10/1/2021
    This Grenache is sourced from the sandy soils of two prized vineyards, La Janasse and La Crau. Redolent of rose petals, smoky tea leaves and black cherry, the deeply penetrating wine pulsates through a long, long finish. Matured 12 months in large-format wood, it’s pure in fruit and satiny on the palate. Stunning young, the wine should gain complexity through at least 2040 and hold much further still.
    JD96+96–99 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 10/6/2020
    The 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Chaupin looks to be a magical wine in the making. It has everything you could want from this region as well as from Grenache. Revealing a medium ruby/purple, almost opaque color as well as a gorgeous bouquet of kirsch liqueur, wild strawberries, loamy soil, peppery garrigue, and flowers, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a seamless, multi-dimensional texture, ultra-fine tannins, and a blockbuster of a finish. This is one of those incredible wines that delivers serious intensity and richness yet stays weightless and is as elegant as they come. It’s going to be approachable with just 2–3 years of bottle age yet will have 20 years or more of longevity.

    RP88+88–90 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 12th Dec 2020
    Plums, black cherries and hints of garrigue mark the nose of the 2019 Cotes du Rhone les 3 Soeurs, a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. It’s medium to full-bodied, with soft masses of ripe tannin that impart a plush mouthfeel and linger easily on the finish. As always with this cuvée, I’d opt for drinking it on the young side.
