2010 Clos Chanteduc Côtes du Rhône

SKU #1090282 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Made from an identical blend, the 2010 Cotes du Rhone Clos Chanteduc is slightly richer and riper with more glycerin, structure and intensity. Aromas of kirsch, black currants, dusty, loamy soil, garrigue and roasted meats make an appearance in this lusty, heady, authentic Cotes du Rhone. It, too, should drink nicely for 5-6 years.

One of many fine Cotes du Rhones on our shelves, this excellent version by Patricia Wells reveals a tapestry of cherry compote, Provencal herbs, sous bois, licorice and black tea on a frame of balanced tannins and appetizing acidity. Lovely, lingering and altogether impressive, especially at this price.
Top Value!

Rhone Blends



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.


- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
