Côtes du Rhône Wine
The Brobdingnag appellation of Côtes du Rhône, which extends from Ampuis in the north to Avignon in south continues to develop its export markets to the envy of other wine producing regions - most notably Bordeaux. Inevitably styles and quality vary considerably across such a vast vine area, but the standard of wine making is generally high and, moreover, is perceived to be so by consumers. People buying a bottle of Côtes du Rhône wine anticipate that they are going to receive a fairly fullbodied and fruity red wine that is immediately accessible and will stand up well to food. By and large they are not disappointed. Competitive pricing of Côtes du Rhône wines and an excellent run of good vintages have also helped.
