Much like thier red siblings, Côtes-du-Rhône whites are a great value, with many wines at or under $20 to be found. They must be made from at least 80% of the allowed Rhone white grapes: Clairette, Grenache blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne, Bourboulenc, and Viognier and make ideal summer quaffers.

White wines from this area can vary enormously in quality and typicity from thin and watery to juicy and ripe. The best producers, however, will make wines that are rich and ripe. Côtes-du-Rhône is almost always drinkable upon release and requires no further cellaring.
