K&L Notes

Dauvergne-Ranvier is the work of Jean-Francois Ranvier and Francois Dauvergne, two dynamic frenchmen with a love for wine and a respect for the origins from which they come. Working with a network of consciencious growers throughout the Rhone Valley, the team produces a range of wines that never belie their sense of place and inherent character. Whether it be a Cote-Rotie, Hemitage, Chateauneuf-du-Pape or Luberon, wines from Dauvergne Ranvier never display power and girth at the expense of finesse. Their "Vins Gourmands" range is meant to imbibe and inspire. Fresh, snappy and by southern Rhone standards light on it's feet at a respectable 13.5%abv, this grenache based red can accompany just about any mediterranean fare that strikes your fancy. Try it slightly chilled with a tuna nicoise salad, vegetarian lasagna or pork chops with sauteed shallots and potatos. 13.5% abv. (Mulan Chan, K&L Rhone and French Regional Wine Buyer)

This is a delightful, berry-scented and juicy Luberon red that shows the lighter, brighter side of Grenache. It's vibrant and fresh, the kind of wine you can open and enjoy with just about anything, from picnic to pork shoulder. With subtle varietal spice accents and pure flavors, this is immediately drinkable, and just might even refresh on a hot day if you give it a little chill.

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.
