Côte-Rôtie : The ‘roasted’ side

By Claire on Sat 18 Aug

Literally translated that is what Côte-Rôtie means and it refers to a very small area along the Rhône from Vienne to Condrieu where the sun beats down on the slopes.  Here a very dry red wine is produced from a combination of Syrah and Viognier grapes that are grown in terraces linked by steps.  We actually preferred the white wine (called Condrieu) produced from Viognier grapes alone but, as production of both wines is labour intensive as well as only available in such a small area, they come with quite a price ticket (£28 a bottle)!
