Cotes de Toul is a wine appellation in the Lorraine region of France situated in the Meurthe-et-Moselle département near the city of Nancy in the north east of the country.
This appellation is becoming well known for the Vin Gris or 'grey' wines that are produced here. These are a style similar to rose but with the method of production seeing little contact of the grape skins with the juice leading to quite a pale colour of the wine. The 'gris' wines are a mixture of Pinot Noir, the white grape Auxerrois and Gamay. There are also red wines (based on Pinot Noir), white wines (based on the Auxerrois grape) and sparkling wines permitted in the appellation.
Try the wines from Andre and Roland Lelievre for good examples of wine from this appellation.
