Michelin Star Quality

When thinking about the red wines of the Rhone Valley it is easy to get caught up in the robust, full bodied and often highly priced offerings from the South of the region, most notably Chateauneuf-du-Pape. There are however a whole range of wines made throughout the valley which represent varied styles and often exceptional value.

For the December case I have selected a Cotes du Rhone wine of exceptional quality which I recently noticed was the house pour of a Sommelier friend's Michelin star restaurant. It gave me the chance to fall in love with this excellent wine all over again, an opportunity for which I am extremely grateful! La Cave Coteaux du Rhône Sérignan-du-Comtat is a co-operative based at the medieval village of Sérignan du Comtat to the north east of Orange in the southern Rhône. Founded in 1926 their 300 members have vines covering 1100 hectares in many of the villages including Massif d’Uchaux, Vacqueyras and Plan de Dieu with the main part of the production being in Côtes du Rhône and Côtes du Rhône Villages. All the local grapes, Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Viognier, amongst others are grown on the stony soil typical of the area. The grape varieties which make up this particular blend are Grenache, Syrah and Carignan with Grenache being the dominant variety accounting for 60%. The wine itself shows lots of ripe plum and cherry fruits with very fine tannins and would be an excellent partner to robust meat dishes such as game or stew.

  1. Arbouse Jean-Henri Fabre, Massif d'Uchaux Cotes du Rhone

    Arbouse Jean-Henri Fabre, Massif d'Uchaux Cotes du Rhone, 2016 75cl

    This is a cracking Côtes du Rhone. The aroma is crammed full of raspberry and strawberry fruit. On the palate the wine is spicier with firm structure that has a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg. A very well made wine.
