VRAC Ctes du Rhne
is made from fruit grown in the southern Rhne valley. 90 of the fruit is de-stemmed, with the
remaining 10 left as whole clusters. Fermentation occurs in open concrete and stainless steel vats. After pressing, the
wine is aged in steel tanks.
In the old-school approach, a Ctes du Rhne red wine would almost always have seen some barrelthe same barrels
sometimes used for too many vintagesleaving the opportunity for brettanomyces or other unfavorable bacterial life to
flourish and become part of the aromatic profile, often noted as barnyard. But in the new school of winemaking, every
attempt is made to capture the freshness of fruit while leaving room for the stony minerality to show through, so no oak is
used at all. The result is a delicious, fresh wine that delivers a true sense of place.

Superior party wine

"Yes, lots of jokes about box wine but this Cotes du Rhone is an excellent party wine and is vastly superior to many bottled competitors of twice the cost. As some detractors have noted there are gross lees in the last glass but, really, is that enough to dissuade you from the purchase. Give it a try."
