The Rhône Valley wine brand Les Dauphins has announced the launch of two new wines in the United States.
Focusing on expanding its collection of Côtes du Rhône wines, Les Dauphins will be releasing two prestige Côtes du Rhône Villages offerings in the form of an Organic Côtes du Rhône Villages Rouge 2015 (SRP: $14.99 per 750-ml. bottle) and a Côtes du Rhône Villages Puyméras Rouge 2014 (SRP: $17.99).
With growing interest in village and cru-level classified wines from regions such as Beaujolais, Les Dauphins believes that the timing is perfect for showcasing the Côtes du Rhône Villages appellation, the company says.
