The Rhone Valley lies in southeast France. From the town of Vienne in the north to Avignon in the south the Rhone River runs south for roughly 120 miles. The Rhone Valley is actually two valleys with Syrah being the main varietal grown in the north. In the southern Rhone region the king grape is Grenache, which is usually blended with Syrah, Mouvedre, Cinsault and Carignan.
On this podcast we review five Cotes Du Rhones and two Cru wines from the villages of Gigondas & St. Joseph. Once again we convened a panel of tasters to help us evaluate the wines. Open up a bottle of Rhone wine and join us as we explore the rich red wines of the Rhone Valley.
