A great introduction to the whites of the Northern Rhone and a super value. This is fat, layered and waxy, but with vibrant acidity to showcase the abundance of ripe stone fruit. White peach, dried apricot and hints of nectarine lead to a mouthwatering, mineral-laced finish that shows just the faintest whiff of ginger.

This is a sultry white from the northern Rhone that has loads of crossover potential for fans of white Burgundy and Chardonnay in general. The Marsanne lends real weight with its creamy texture. The wine has oodles of butter poached pear flavors, some distinct peach pit notes and a smattering of nutmeg and allspice aromas. Lush but with nice acid to balance it all out. A real pleasure.

This well-made blend really demonstrates that Domaine des Remizières is not afraid of oak but able to balance it beautifully with bright acid and fruit: crisp green apple and luscious pear, plus a hint of stone fruit. Textural and just weighty enough, there is still plenty of freshness in the crowd-pleasing 2015. A great discovery.

The Northern Rhone is so well-regarded for its superb Syrah-based red wines that the whites, aside from the long-lived Hermitage blancs, are often overlooked. The Cuvee Christophe, an exemplary blend dominated by Marsanne with a dollop of Roussanne, resonates with aromas of fleshy peaches, Bosc pears and almonds, delivering rich, captivating flavors of pear, kitchen spice and nectarine on the creamy, sumptuous palate. A rewarding wine to pair with roasted Cornish hen or a ham and Gruyere tart.

Country:

France

- 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.

Sub-Region:

Rhone

- 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.
