Costières de Nîmes has more in common with the Rhône Valley across the river than it does with the wines of Languedoc immediately neighbouring it. A blend of Grenache and Syrah, this wine has a delicious scented nose with herby aromas, lashings of juicy forest fruits and spicy, rich berry flavours with hints of spice and dark chocolate on the palate and a good, smooth finish.
A blend of Ugni Blanc, Colombard, Melon and Sauvignon Blanc from the south of France; specifically from the areas around Charentes and Gascogne. Light and straightforward, with an up-front nose of citrus fruit, tinged with a subtle leafy character, this really is a wine built for summer sunshine. With the soft citrus and green leaf flavours following from the nose to the palate, the finish is crisp and dry, with plenty of refreshing acidic bite.
This wine is made from grapes sourced from a number of growers in the local cooperative from a blend of Grenache and Carignan, two varietals that appear in the majority of Languedoc and Southern French wines.
Supple and inviting on the nose there is plenty of red fruit flavour and a hint of spice. On the tastebuds, this wine blends the soft and jammy raspberry fruit of ripe Grenache with the firming influences of Carignan’s blackberry flavours and robust tannin.
