The Wine: Côtes du Rhône Rouge Colline 2020

La Cabotte Côtes du Rhône Rouge Colline is a red wine made from biodynamic Grenache and Syrah grapes grown on chalky Limestone, and gravelly soils in the Rhône Valley, France. Lots of black fruit and spice on the nose, with balanced acidity, this wine is bottled unfiltered.

The Producer: La Cabotte

Burgundian vigneron Gabriel d’Ardhuy first fell in love with this small domaine in 1980 while on a bicycle trip with his grandchildren. He was so taken by the beauty of this 45-hectare property, just outside the village of Mondragon in the Drôme of the southern Rhône, that he bought it. His daughter, Marie-Pierre d’Ardhuy-Plumet, and her husband, Éric Plumet, have run the domaine ever since, slowly bringing the once-abandoned property back to life.

Blessed with old-vine Grenache and lanes lined with mature olive trees, it is a little slice of Provençal paradise. Marie-Pierre and Éric have undertaken the restoration of the domaine in small steps. They rehabilitated the rocky vineyards and built a more modern winery. In 2007, they began using organic and biodynamic farming practices in the vineyards and today are certified in both methods of farming. The vines are situated at 165 meters above sea level in the Massif d’ Uchaux, whose altitude and ideal sun exposure make for a cooler growing area in this part of the Rhône, thereby leaving the grapes’ natural acidity to shine in the final wines. Domaine la Cabotte is named for the small stone shelters and tool sheds used by growers in the vineyards.

Marie-Pierre and Éric grow Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, and Carignan and use the lunar calendar as a guidepost for appropriate natural vine treatments. Keeping the yields low, an uncommon practice in the high-yielding Côtes du Rhône, is paramount to their philosophy. They prune aggressively in the winter, de-bud in the spring and perform a green harvest in the summer. After the harvest, all of the grapes are sorted rigorously (once in the vineyards, another at the winery) and are de-stemmed. Fermentation takes place quickly, and the must is pumped-over twice a day. The wines then go through a post-fermentation maceration of six to seven days to soften the tannins. The wines are aged in tanks and bottled in the spring. Using such labor-intensive methods of quality control in both the vineyard and cellar give the spicy Côtes du Rhônes of Domaine la Cabotte a great value beyond their modest price.

Stress-Free Shipping

At Primal Wine, we like to be transparent about everything we do. When it comes to buying products online, shipping is the most important aspect, and that’s why we take great care in shipping and handling your order using only 100% recycled packaging material. We don't ship to: KS, LA, MS, AL, WI, KY, NH, UT, SD, MI, AR.

Important Compliance Requirements

UPS and other carriers we might occasionally use can only deliver wine to customers who are 21 years or older. Someone must be at the address to receive the package, carriers don't just drop a package and leave. They must ensure the person receiving the wine is 21 or older.

Re-shipping a Package

If a package gets returned to us after three failed delivery attempts, we can only re-ship the wine upon payment of a re-shipping fee to be determined based on shipping address and number of bottles. Shipping wine is extremely expensive, we are sorry about this, but we have no other choice. Please make sure there's always someone at the address you enter as your shipping address.

Re-routing a Package

If you'd like to re-route a package after it's been shipped, we can do so upon payment of a $20 re-routing fee. We cannot re-route a package across state borders.

Canceling an Order

If you'd like to cancel an order after it's been shipped, we can do so upon payment of a small cancelling fee – the amount depends on how big the order is. Carriers charge us a lot of money to recall a package en-route.

Important COVID Update

UPS and FedEx declared that in order to protect their workers and customers, they no longer require a signature on delivery. This does not mean they will drop a wine box at your door. UPS delivery workers will make sure the person receiving the wine is 21 years or older, and will ask for his/her name - only then do they deliver the package.
