2012 Gris des Bauries "Duo des Achaux" Côtes du Rhône

SKU #1269710

In 2004, four friends from vastly unrelated fields--a brick layer, a baker's daughter, a psychologist and an economist--got together with big dreams of making wine. Today, they organically farm 12 hectares in Taulignan, in the rolling hills east of the Southern Rhône Valley. Their wines continually win awards, and the four are still loving the winemaking life. According to the winery, the Duo des Achaux is "a balanced blend of Syrahs and old Grenache that grow on a plateau within the appellation Côtes du Rhône Villages. It combines a subtle intensity and delicate flavors of red and black berries, and more."

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.
