Côtes Du Ventoux, Southern Rhône

Domaine du Bon Remède

Les Vignes Rousses Ventoux Carignan 2019

Vintage 2019 | Made from 50 y old Carignan (60%), Grenache (30%) and Syrah (10%). 18 months barrel aging. That gives a solid wine with expressive smell (red summerfruit) quite frivolous, and a surprisingly powerful taste. Iron fist in a velvet glove. Really good. Paired it with venison steak. Good starter for the quest to Ventoux @Daniel M — 17 days ago

Demazet Vignobles

Cyparis Ventoux Red Rhone Blend 2017

Cyparis Ventoux 2017 - domaine demazet

Very nice CDR. Blackberry and olive and garrigue on the nose. There is a bit of red fruit too like Raspberry. The palate is very well balanced with a good acid drive, a good width, a silky, milky mouthfeel, a good tannins wall with a drying effect and a good finish with that drying effect, a big bright blackberry note and a tiny bit of bitterness. This is a cheap wine with a huge value

This one has good value but overall it seems there are some hidden gems within the appelation.

E. Guigal

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2016

Dark and inviting, this is another great showing for Guigal’s multi-million bottle basic Côtes du Rhône. The generous nose comes across very southern Rhône-like, with aromas of blackberry, liquorice, lavender and fresh tar, while the palate adds flavours of plum and smoked bacon, with a spicy finish. This really is remarkably good stuff for the money. — 3 days ago

Domaine du Pegau

Chateau Pegau Côtes-Du-Rhône Blanc White Rhone Blend 2019

Chateau Pegau (love this producer) Lone Cote du Rhône White is an interesting blend of Clairette (40%), Borboulanc (30%), Grenache Blanc (20%) and Ugni Blanc (10%). Aromas and flavors of white peach and lemon with notes of minerals, white flowers and herbs. Straw gold color, medium body and refreshing. Long and lingering finish. Excellent! — 3 days ago

Château Rayas

Château Des Tours Réservé Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2012

I bought this bottle 5 years ago for 16 EUR and I'm not sure about the current pricetag but man what a bargain it was. I had to dig deep into my cellar to pull this one but I'm so glad I did..
This is unlike anything I know from that region.
The nose is blood orange and olive and garrigue. The palate is magnificent. A very strong acid backbone, a very dry mouthfeel with those blood orange notes all along. A huge width and an soft mouthfeel, a power house of a mid palate with carressing tannins which create a drying layer, and eventually a very long, everlasting finish with that blood orange note which turns into blood orange peel in the end with a tiny bitter twist. This is greatness before my eyes (and tastebuds)
