Classification and terroir of the Côtes du Rhône appellation


This region could compete with Bordeaux the place of second major French wine region because it extends over about 40,000 ha. The appellation includes 171 municipalities and more than 5,000 producers, cooperatives and traders. The wines are classified into 3 levels:
- premier niveau AOC Côtes du Rhône

- second level AOC Côtes du Rhône village which is subdivided into two according to the appellation area of the communes

- and higher level wines called "crus" such as AOC Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Taste and price vary depending on the ranking. The appellation allows winemakers to choose from 21 grape varieties, the majority of which are red grape varieties. Wines can be vinified into rouge, rosé, blanc. The colour of the wine must respect the number of grape varieties and their blend. The crus are planted in the best mountain granite terroirs of the north and the rocky valleys of the south. Note that the word raw does not often appear on the labels of vins du Rhône. The classification Côtes du Rhône Villages, meanwhile, represents vineyards with a limited yield according to the various specifications and a higher alcohol content. These are wines at affordable prices and cut for ageing. They go perfectly with dishes like a leg of lamb or a duck fillet.
