Les Courtilles Cotes du Rhone
"A juiciness, a more-ishness"

Les Courtilles Cotes du Rhone

2013, Rhone Valley France

BBQ Beef/Steak Pizza Lamb
  • From the Rhone Valley, southern France
  • Classic French red blend of Syrah and Grenache (with a splash of the lesser known Carignan in there too)
  • "Medium bodied and savoury, with soft tannins and easy drinkability" (90/100 - Ralph Kyte-Powell, Sydney Morning Herald)

Sacre Bleu! We've had a few Frenchies in our time (wines that is) and this red rates up there for sheer value.

If you're new to Cotes-du-Rhone let's bring you up to speed eh? From the Rhone Valley in the south of France "Cotes-du-Rhone" is one of the most famous styles of French red, it's a blend of Syrah and Grenache (and sometimes other grape varieties, like a splash of the little known grape Carignan in this one) and is loved all over the world for it's medium bodied, spicy, warm-hearted style and all year round drinkability.

From a village winery in the Rhone valley (on the right bank nestled between the towns of Orange and Avignon for the Rhone know it alls) and produced from 35 year old vines. Winemaker Bernard Schurr has named the wine after the small courtyards in the village (Les Courtilles).

We're not the only ones totally digging this wine...

91/100 (Sam Kim, Wine Orbit)
- "Flavoursome palate that is beautifully ripe and generous"

91/100 (Campbell Mattinson, WineFront)
- "Great package at an excellent price. Has a brightness, a juiciness, a more-ishness."


90/100 (Ralph Kyte-Powell, Sydney Morning Herald)
- "Medium bodied and savoury, with soft tannins and easy drinkability"


A great style with or without food - if you're looking for the ideal match with grub you can't go past pizzas, pastas and slow cooked red meats. Or how about going a La Francais and whipping up a Beef Bourguignon? Bon appetite!
