A Côtes du Rhône for Stews and Roasts

Here, wine experts reveal their favorite bottles costing less than $17. Many of the selections are lesser known but absolutely worth the search.

Who: Mike Robertson, wine buyer, Greene Grape, Brooklyn

What: 2012 Domaine de Servans Côtes du Rhône, $13

Why: “This is a super-drinkable Côtes du Rhône that is very versatile with food, especially the stews and roasts I enjoy at this time of year,” says Robertson. “It’s the kind of wine that I like to keep a few bottles of on hand at all times, just in case. You never know when you’ll need a delicious bottle of red that isn’t too special to just pop open.”
