Profile

Smell

Bright fruit – mostly cherry, blueberry and plum – with a touch of pepper. The wine is a bit closed at first, but reveals cedar, pipe tobacco and vanilla as it opens up in the glass, so don't be afraid to take your time and savour this classic red!

Taste

A medium-bodied wine, again with cherries and blueberries, some vanilla and dry leaves. Light, silky tannins give structure to this elegant Southern French wine.

Pairing

For an unexpected (and delicious) match, serve with a homemade beef and broccoli stir fry with lots of ginger, garlic and soy. The wine also loves grilled red meats.

Aromas and Flavours

Cherry

Fresh B.C. cherries out of the back of a truck, all eaten before you can get them home!

Blueberry

Eating handfuls of berries straight from the bush, your fingers stained purple for days to come.

Plum

Sweet, fruity and sensual, similar stone fruit aromas to a peach, but without the 'fuzziness.'

Tobacco

The smell of a freshly rolled cigar, slightly sweet, and earthy - just like Grandpa's hugs.

Cedar / Oak

An intriguing mix of clove, sandalwood and resin - the smell of your favourite wooded trail.

Description

The Côtes du Rhône appellation in the southern Rhône Valley produces some of the best-loved 'everyday drinking' reds from France. While their reputation is humble and rustic wines have some merit, there are also much more complex, terroir-specific examples. A step above the general Côtes du Rhône designation, Villages-level wines must come from one of the 95 authorized communes in the region. Of these, a small group of 22 specific villages are allowed to append their own name to Côtes du Rhône-Villages – each providing a fascinating look at the possible nuances in this historic region. Visan, the home village of this wine, is known for bright red fruit and warm spice.

The winery, Terroir Daronton, produces wines throughout the Rhône valley, seeking to capture the regional variation through the lens of the Rhône's famous grapes. In this case Grenache, Syrah, and Carignan are 100% organically cultivated on clay-limestone soils. The wine can be enjoyed now or over the next 4 years at about 18 ºC.
