Côtes du Rhône-Villages

Large-scale appellation in the south of the French wine-growing region Rhône. The vineyards cover 7,900 hectares of vines in 95 communes of the four departments of Ardèche (4 communes), Drôme (17), Gard (33) and Vaucluse (41). The wines marketed under this designation are mainly red, but also rosé and white wines. Compared to the regional appellation Côtes du Rhône (which also includes parts of the northern section) there are much stricter regulations. These are, for example, a maximum yield of 45 hl/ha, a minimum of 12% vol. alcohol content and precise regulations regarding the authorised grape varieties. In the case of Côtes du Rhône-Villages with indication of the municipality, there are even stricter regulations such as a maximum yield of 42 hl/ha.
