Cote Rotie

The northernmost appellation of the Rhône Valley lies on the right bank (i.e., western side) of the Rhône River. Its vineyards face mainly southeast and are vertiginously steep; the terracing, and the use of stone walls to control erosion, is little different from when the Romans worked these hillsides. Côte-Rôtie is planted 95% to Syrah and 5% to the white Viognier, although up to 20% of the latter is allowed in the finished wine. Those who include some Viognier claim that it gives "lift" to the aromas and softens the palate feel of the wine.   More
