TAKAPUNA WINE CLUB | THE WINES OF THE RHONE
With a winemaking history stretching back to pre-roman times, a long geographical spread encompassing hundreds of communes and a long list of grape varieties approved under AOC regulation, the Cotes du Rhone region produces a truly breathtaking range of wine. Rose, white, red and sweet fortified wines are all made in the Rhone, and in a range from everyday good value table wine right through to some of the most rare and fine wines in the world. Despite this, the wines made there are often overlooked in favour of the more glamourous regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy. In time to celebrate Bastille Day, the July Takapuna wine club will be devoted to exploring some classic examples of Cotes du Rhone, so come and hear and taste why these wines are so deserving of extra attention and acclaim. We will be tasting: Mont Redon Cotes du Rhone Reserve Blanc 2018, Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc 2017, Chateaunuef du Pape Rouge 2015, Lirac Rose 2018, Yves Cuilleron Condrieu Petite Cote 2016, Guigal Cotes du Rhone 2015, Jaboulet Muscat de Beaumes de Venise 2013, Yves Cuilleron Cornas Vires 2008.
