Winemaking
Selected in the heart of Costières de Nîmes’ terroir, this vintage -70% Grenache and 30% Syrah– concentrates the aromatic richness and bounty of the vineyard in this area. Mediterranean climate and exceptionally rich soils bring structure and balance to this wine, while preserving its delicacy. After complete destemming, Syrah and Grenache varieties are vinified the traditional way, in a controlled-temperature environment. Maceration takes place over a fortnight. A small quantity of the Syrah variety undergoes carbonic maceration in order to enhance the fruity potential.

Tasting Note
The nose reveals a wide range of berries, spices and violets. This is a strong-bodied, generous wine, which releases blackcurrant, blackberry and raspberry aromas. Its long-lasting tannins provide a silky sensation on the palate, with a final persistence characterized by spicy hints.

Serving Suggestion
You may enjoy this Costières de Nîmes with spicy cuisine, grilled meat or strong cheese. Serve between 16 and 18°C.
