Kicking off February, nothing alludes to the month of love quite like a smooth shade of rouge like Le Creuset’s latest shade: Rhône.

Taking note from the French wine region of Côtes du Rhône, this latest shade from the stoneware brand introduces a plum-red collection to kitchens, which perfectly pairs with a special vintage you have been saving to open for a special occasion.

Rich in French heritage and flavour, visions of roaming hills of vineyards and aromatic slow-cooked meats are perfectly distilled within the Rhône collection. Take shape in a wide range of Le Creuset’s products, you can find the classic Dutch ovens, heart-warming tea mugs, soup pots, and many more. Cast iron pots are also elegantly capped with a luxe gold knob, which perfectly pairs with the sumptuous red. Both will improve with age, making for a splendid shade pairing.

How to Pair with Your Other Le Creuset Pots

Like great wine, tapping the perfect pairing of Rhône with your pre-existing Le Creuset products.

Since taking inspiration from finest wines in the world, Rhône is a sophisticated red, cultivated with notes of smooth elegance. This pairing the boldness of Rhône with the vibrant energy of brighter Le Creuset shades like honey-like Nectar or soft Chambray, a grey-toned blue.
