Domaine Berthet Rayne - Wine List


This domaine, run by the brothers Michel and Andre Berthet-Rayne, is based in Cairanne, near Orange, one of the villages on the edge of the extensive sun-baked Plan de Dieu plateau, and now the leading village in the Côtes du Rhone Villages appellation. The domaine produces warming, full-bodied wines, using the typical varieties of the region; Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre. The superb Cairanne is made from old, low yielding vines, and even the entry-level Côtes du Rhone shows plenty of rich, dark fruit.
