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.

  3. 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.

  4. Domaine Saint Préfert Châteauneuf-du-Pape

    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.

  5. Élisabeth Chambellan Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vielles Vignes

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#55482

    JD9696 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/3/2021
    Even better, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes Elisabeth Chambellan ranks with the crème de la crème of the vintage. Based on 88% Grenache, 10% Syrah, and the rest Mourvèdre, brought up in a mix of tank and foudre, it has ample red and blue fruits as well as sappy green herbs, garrigue, pepper, and sandalwood. As with the base cuvée, it has a wonderful sense of freshness, medium to full-bodied richness, and a pure, balanced, lengthy style that’s a joy to drink.
    VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2021
    Deep ruby-red. Vibrant, spice-tinged red and blue fruit, exotic spice and floral qualities on the perfumed nose. Juicy raspberry, boysenberry and cherry cola flavors show an appealing blend of depth and energy and a spicy flourish on the back half. Closes very long and subtly chewy, with repeating florality and sneaky, well-judged tannins.

  6. 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.

    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.

    SP8585 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2003

    Moving to the 2018s, the 2018 Côtes du Rhône is another perfumed, elegant, beautifully complex Côtes du Rhône offering a cool-climate-like style in its more raspberry and strawberry fruits as well as white pepper and Provençal garrigue aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, seamless, and beautifully balanced, this is a terrific Côtes du Rhône to enjoy over the coming 3–5 years.

    Cuvée Reservée
    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#55305

    VN9595 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2021
    Brilliant ruby. Smoky, mineral-tinged aromas of raspberry, cherry preserves, garrigue and exotic spices show excellent clarity and acquire a gamy nuance as the wine opens up. At once rich and energetic in character, offering well-concentrated red berry, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors and a sweetening touch of candied lavender. Shows fine definition and finishes gently, spicy and impressively long, with repeating florality and steadily building tannins.
    RP92+92–95 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Aug 2019
    The 2018 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Réservée is full-bodied but quite approachable and easy to drink, loaded with black cherries and plummy fruit and tinged with licorice. A blend of 80% Grenache, 6% Syrah, 4% Mourvèdre and 10% other permitted varieties, it finishes long and silky.
    JD91+91–94 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 10/6/2020
    Not yet bottled, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Réservée continues to show beautifully and is a soft, charming example of this cuvée that’s going to drink nicely right out of the gate. Loads of blackcurrants, peppery herbs, bloody meat, and violet notes emerge from the glass and it’s medium to full-bodied, has a seamless, elegant texture, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It reminds me of an improved 2014, and despite its upfront appeal, it’s going to evolve nicely for 15 years or more. This estate has a long track record of off vintages aging and drinking beautifully far longer than anyone would predict, and I’m sure the same will be the case with the 2018.

  12. Alain Voge Cornas Les Vieilles Vignes

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#56020

    JD9898 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/19/2020
    While not submitted to my tasting (and it wasn’t presented from barrel last year), it would be hard to imagine there won’t be a Les Vieilles Fontaines cuvée. Don’t miss a chance to buy a bottle if you find one. Moving to the 2018 Cornas Les Vieilles Vignes, this beauty is cut from the same cloth as the Les Chailles yet is deeper and richer, with another level of concentration. Black and blue fruits, ground pepper, violets, smoked game, and loads of spring flower notes define the bouquet, and it has a vibrant, almost old school vibe that carries plenty of power yet still stays light and elegant on the palate. This beautiful, singular wine is open and enjoyable today, yet I wouldn’t be surprised to see it close down with a year or two of bottle age. It should see its 20th birthday in fine form.
    VN9595 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
    Opaque ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet displays powerful aromas of black and blue fruit preserves, incense, peony and olive paste. Palate-staining blackberry, boysenberry, fruitcake and floral pastille flavors deepen steadily on the back half. Gains weight and sweetness with air, finishing with a jolt of smoky minerality, sneaky tannins and outstanding persistence.
    RP9494 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 13th May 2021
    The 2018 Cornas Vieilles Vignes blends fruit from some of the top lieux-dits of the appellation: Combe, Patou, La Côte, Les Mazards and Chaillot. Aged 20 months in approximately 15% new oak, it’s a dark, inky-hued wine, but one that retains bright, fresh fruit notes of red raspberries and plums alongside hints of cedar and menthol. It’s full-bodied and concentrated on the palate, with a firm, granitic structure and sense of restraint, fine-grained, almost silky tannins and tremendous length.
    SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 28, 2021
    Dark and winey, with lots of steeped black cherry, plum and blackberry fruit forming the core while light sweet tapenade, rosemary and mineral notes streak through on the finish. Vivid, energetic Cornas. Best from 2022 through 2036. 1,350 cases made, 128 cases imported.

  13. Château de Vaudieu Clos du Belvédere Châteauneuf-du-Pape

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#55424

    JD9898 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 10/6/2020
    The 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Clos Du Belvédère Blanc checks in as 100% Grenache Blanc, all from a single parcel of vines around the estate. Brought up all in older barrels, it offers a Grand Cru white Burgundy-like bouquet of caramelized orchard fruits, white currants, wood smoke, scorched earth, and a beautiful sense of minerality. The purity is just about off the charts in this magical wine, which hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a beautiful spine of acidity, flawless balance, and a great finish. It’s unquestionably one of the greatest whites I’ve tasted from the estate and is quite possibly the wine of the vintage in 2019 whites.
    RP9696 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2020
    All old-vine Grenache Blanc grown on galets roulés and red clay, the 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Clos du Belvedere boasts remarkable freshness and verve allied to ample weight and concentration. Scents of mixed citrus mark the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate delivers scintillating notes of tangerine and lime, plus some gently herbal notes on the long, vibrant finish. It’s clearly one of the best varietal Grenache Blancs to have passed this taster’s lips, but I would suggest drinking it over the next several years to be sure to catch it in its youthful splendor.

    RP93+93–95 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2020
    Intoxicating scents of ripe plums, dried spices and dark chocolate emerge on the nose of the 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes, a rich, full-bodied effort that’s undeniably impressive as a pre-bottling sample. Dense and concentrated, it somehow manages to retain a sense of freshness, perhaps the influence of the long, anise-tinged finish.
    JD93+93–95 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 10/6/2020
    A solid step up, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes offers more of everything, with a deeper ruby/purple color, stunning notes of blackcurrants, black raspberries, toasted spices, and Provençal garrigue, medium to full-bodied richness, a beautifully layered mouthfeel, and a great finish. This is another sexy, seamless wine from this team that I would certainly be thrilled to have in the cellar. As with the base cuvée, 20–15 years of prime drinking are ahead of it.

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#53435

    RP9797 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 24th Sep 2020
    Most of the vInes for the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Imperiale were planted in 1902, mainly Grenache, with a few other scattered plants of other varieties. Full-bodied and concentrated, it boasts massive flavors of raspberries and cherries, with just enough herbal intricacies woven into the fabric of the wine to impart a sense of lightness and freshness — it positively tingles on the long, long finish. Produced from biodynamically grown fruit at yields just half the maximum permitted by the appellation (16–18 hectoliters per hectare, versus 35), it’s a tremendous effort.
    JD9494 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - October 6, 2020
    A forward, charming example of this cuvee, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Imperiale is almost all old-vine Grenache that was brought up in concrete tanks. It offers a ruby/purple hue as well as a beautiful perfume of raspberries, candied violets, peppery spices, and flowery incense. With medium to full-bodied richness, an elegant texture, the more moderate concentration and depth of the vintage, and outstanding length, drink this beauty anytime over the coming 10–12 years.
    VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2021
    Deep, shimmering ruby. Mineral-accented raspberry, cherry pie, lavender and exotic spice qualities on the highly perfumed nose. Supple and expansive on the palate, offering concentrated red and blue fruit, spicecake and floral pastille flavors that tighten up steadily through the back half. Finishes with slow-building tannins, a repeating red fruit note and emphatic, mineral-driven persistence.
