Cotes du Forez wine appellation in the Loire region of France It is the first appellation in the Loire when you trace the river from its source in the Ardeche mountains.
In fact, although it is considered part of the Loire it probably has a closer geographical affinity to the Burgundy region. The vineyards are planted at 200 to 350 metres above sea level on granitic soil which, of course, favours the Gamay grape which is the only permitted variety in the appellation.
Cotes du Forez was promoted from VDQS to full AOC status in 2000.
