WINE WHITE - BOTTLE 75 CL CÔTES DU RHÔNE AOC GRENACHE BLANC - CLAIRETTE - BOURBOULENC - VIOGNIER
TERROIR Clay-limestone soil from the southern Drôme and northern Vaucluse areas.
TASTING NOTES This wine has a lovely white gold hue with bright glints and a nose featuring fleshy fruit – white peach and apricot – enhanced by floral notes. The full-bodied, elegant palate is pleasantly refreshing and sustained by a lasting fruit finish.
The grapes are harvested early at cool temperatures, to produce lighter wines limited to 10% alcohol.
TERROIR The profiles of the wines in the 10° À LOMBRE range are formulated through a painstaking selection of the coolest terroirs from the 11 winemakers that belong to Union des Vignerons des Côtes du Rhône. The freshness of these wines is pleasantly complemented by the full body which is typical of the IGP Méditerranée appellation.
TASTING NOTES Red fruit with a touch of spice on the nose. The palate is round and velvety, with prominent ripe fruit. A wine that is easy to enjoy and share.
TERROIR The Cairanne vineyard is located in the sunny Upper Vaucluse region, on clay-limestone soil amidst garrigue scrubland. The vines are selected at the parcel from the best in the appellation and grown using the most environmentally friendly methods. The wines are produced to the highest quality standards – a level of attention to detail that enables the wine to embody the abundance and generosity of its terroir.
TASTING NOTES This Cairanne has a deep garnet red hue, black fruit and Morello cherries on the nose, and an unctuous, elegant palate with spice notes and a touch of licorice.
CELLIER DESDAUPHINS FOUNDED IN 1967, CELLIER DES DAUPHINS IS THE BEST-SELLING BRAND OF AOC WINE IN FRANCE TODAY.
The brand is named after the location of the UNION DES VIGNERONS DES CÔTES DU RHÔNEs first member wine cellars: its original terroir was part of the Dauphiné, a region then given to the Dauphin, the eldest son of the King of France.
Since its inception, the Cellier des Dauphins brand has sported a bottle with an unmistakably unique shape, dedicated to its classic CÔTES DU RHÔNE PRESTIGErange, a full selection of sunny, generous wines that offer excellent value for money.
Although it has changed subtly over the years, the bottle of the CELLIER DES DAUPHINS PRESTIGE has retained its distinctive shape, which aptly reflects its values of simplicity and sharing.
A strong, innovative brand, Cellier des Dauphins has expanded over the years to offer four lines in addition to the PRESTIGE range:
BIO: With over 1,000 hectares of certified organic vineyards, Cellier des Dauphins is one of the leading organic producers in the Rhône Valley.
BALADES EN RHÔNE: French for “Walks in the Rhône”, this wine brand invites us to explore its original terroirs and sophisticated flavours.
SIGNATURE: A truly elegant wine collection with complex sensory qualities. Each vintage is custom-produced through painstaking parcel selection and demanding specifications.
10° À LOMBRE: Light, yet full-flavoured southern wines that are happily enjoyed on a shady terrace with friends when the sun starts to come out.
