If you are 'Rhone Ranger' then this wine is for you. Georges Darriaud's brilliant Cote Du Rhône Villages - looks expensive, smells expensive and tastes expensive but is not expensive.
This small-production wine represents everything you want to impress your guests at Christmas. From the heavy weighted bottle to the classic and sophisticated label following through to the rich concentration of well balanced red and black fruit.
Cotes du Rhône Villages is an appellation from certain villages of the Rhone region of France. Wines made under the Cotes Du Rhone appellation must meet higher standards than those of the plain Cotes de Rhone title and are from areas that show potential to produce distinctive wines of good quality.
The wines are widely accepted as providing a good balance of value and quality, as they are unaffected by the costly prestige associated with names such as Chateauneuf du Pape and Darriaud's wine perfectly encapsulates this.
