Great Value

The blend is 1/3rd each Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Vermentino. From Faugères, 60 miles west of the Rhone Valley. Elevation and rocky schist soils make for wines of concentration and dimension here. This wine is mighty fine. Honeysuckle, orange zest and lemon custard on the nose, then taste peach purée, ripe grapefuit and mango, wrapping up with fresh ginger and chamomile on the finish. Medium body, creamy texture from neutral oak aging and stirring of lees, heartbeat of acidity. Drink this with or without food.

Domaine de Cottebrune is owned, grown and made by Pierre Gaillard of Northern Rhone Valley fame. For lovers of Southern French wines Cottebrune is a no-brainer, especially at the prices for which they’re offered.
