Coteaux du Tricastin
A large area, just south of Montelimar, which is a relatively recent appellation, and closest to the northern Rhone. Due to this fact, there is generally more Syrah in the blends, and they have more weight and fullness than their counterparts COes du Ventoux and Cotes du Luberon.
