2010 Domaine Roche Côtes du Rhône

SKU #1120446 90 points Wine Spectator

 Ripe, rounded and juicy, with a delicious core of melted licorice, plum sauce and linzer torte notes. A light tarry edge helps drive the finish. Rock-solid. Grenache, Syrah and Carignan. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.  (11/2011)

K&L Notes

Hand-harvested from 40 year old vines, the 2010 Côtes du Rhône from Domaine Roche is a blend of 60% Grenache, 25% Syrah, and 15% Carignan. Romain Roche, who is not even 30 years old, inherited his 15 hectare domaine in Cairanne from his parents, who had previously sold the grapes from their 40-105 year old vines to negociants. The 2010 vintage marks only the second vintage from this brand new family label. Already overachieving at their price point, we expect to continue to see great things come out of Domaine Roche. 15% abv.

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.
