History

  • Wines have been produced in the region since pre-Roman times. In the mid 17th century the right-bank district of Côte du Rhône had issued regulations to govern the quality of its wine and in 1737 the king ordered that casks of wine shipped from the nearby river port of Roquemaure should be branded with the letters CDR to introduce a system of protecting its origin. The name was changed to Côtes du Rhône when the left-bank wines were included in the appellation some hundred years later.

Strong chemical taste probably a bad bottle

1 stars

This wine tastes strongly of chemicals. I am assuming it must be a bad bottle and I am taking it back as it was so revolting no-one could not bear to drink it. I hope all the other bottles do not taste like this one!

Very good indeed

5 stars

This has been available to buy in-store for a few months and has now made it to Tesco online. Excellent! Don't be put off by the relatively low price as this is a very acceptable Cotes du Rhone without any sharp edges or nasty surprises. Pop it into a crystal decanter and it seems to get even more classy after developing in the air for an hour. I shall be buying many, many cases of this and suggest you do the same. Good luck.
