Northern Rhone

Northern Rhone

Located in the vast Rhone Valley wine region, the northern Rhone is a famous French wine producing region whose northern point is just below the city of Lyon, and southern point around the town of Valence. Separated from the more prolific southern Rhone by the 45th parallel (and a gap of about 40 kilometres) the northern Rhone is responsible for less than 10 percent of the greater Rhone Valley output, but most of the focus is on premium quality wines. Wine made in the northern Rhone is typically red and almost exclusively produced from Syrah. Even though the output is small the three white wine varieties of the northern Rhone, Marsanne, Viognier and Roussanne, all play a part, either on their own or as a minor blending component in the Syrah.

Historically the appellations of Saint-Joseph, Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage and Cote-Rotie make the most highly regarded red wines of the northern Rhone, while Condrieu is a distinctive white wine appellation, making both sweet and dry wines from Viognier.

  • Domaine Rene Rostaing Cote-Rotie Cuvee Classique

    The cooler weather in the northern Rhone made 2007 a slightly difficult vintage, but the wines from Cote-Rotie fared particularly well. Late ripening and a longer hang time have made this an elegant, medium-bodied 100 percent Syrah from the acclaimed estate of Rene Rostaing, with clean fruit and a delicate silky texture. Aromatic spices, fragrant violets and a long finish complete the picture. Drink now or hold until 2019.

  • Domaine Rene Rostaing Cote-Rotie Cuvee Classique

    2006 was a stellar vintage in the northern Rhone, with great finesse, structure and charm, and markedly different to the robust 2005s. Rostaing's ability to showcase the rich, elegant side of the Syrah grape is in full effect here, its rich dark fruit and cassis flavours deftly lifted by a delicate note of violets and pepper. Drink now, or hold until 2022.

    Yann Chave Hermitage

    Yann Chave

    Yann Chave Hermitage

    Beautifully crafted from Syrah grapes taken from the Chave family's Hermitage vineyards near the village of Mercurol in the northern Rhone. The vineyards' south-west exposure ensures extended sunshine hours, and the wine is aged for 12 months in large 600-litre barrels, so as not to over-oak Syrah's delicate, complex notes. The result is seductive, richly concentrated wine with powerful purple fruit character and handsomely integrated peppery spice. Drink or hold until 2025.
