Rhone Wine Week at Red Nose Wine

October 27th, 2016

Rhone Wine Week 2016

Did you know its Rhone Wine week this week – every year at this time, the good people from the Rhone send importers all manner of Rhone themed goodies to tempt people to try Rhone.

You shouldn’t need any other reason than the wines are just superb.

I love this time of year – I really feel that Rhone wines come into their own. The weather is getting colder and the days shorter. See solace in lovely warm wines.

Where is the Rhone ?

The Rhone Valley runs from just south of Lyon down to Avignon. See this great map

But here are loads of other less known villages with great value to be found. We will also have their peachy Cotes du Rhone white.
A blend of Viognier, Grenache Blanc – its style is Round, peachy & tropical. It is a cool, fresh, aromatic white.

Be sure to try our great Lavau Rasteau this weekend.
Rasteau is a great appellation – half the price of Chateauneuf but very similar in style
Grenache & Syrah are the blend here. The style is Silky, elegant & rich
Silky, glossy red with obvious aromas of plum pie, smoky bacon and crushed violets. Smooth and elegant yet concentrated and complex – ripe, round tannins, soft acidity and mouth-coating flavours of hedgerow fruits, vanilla and tapenade.

€16.99 on special for the weekend
