Notes from the Winemaker:

TERROIR: r
olled pebbles and red clay. AOC Costières de Nîmes.
APPELLATION:
Costières de Nîmes

VINIFICATION:
- selection of parcels of old vines with naturally small yields

- direct press to preserve the acidity
- partial fermentation in barrels (50% of the volume)
- aging on lees during 6 months
- one single bottling run without filtration.

TASTING NOTES:
- Appearance: the pale yellow color tinted in green announces a wine with a great deal of freshness and purity
- Nose: the complex nose reveals floral and mineral notes with accents of fresh citrus fruits
- Taste: lively and fresh, the aromas of flowers and white fruits, blends with flint. The very soft finish evinces a great deal of minerality.

Ratings & Reviews



91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2014 Costières de Nîmes Nostre Païs is another winner. Made from 52% Grenache Blanc, 22% Roussanne, 17% Viognier and the balance Clairette and Bourboulenc, it exhibits outstanding notes of citrus blossom, white flowers, licorice and green apple. Medium-bodied, fresh, pretty and focused, it should be better in the next four to six months (probably by the time you read this) and drink well for 1-2 years." - Jeb Dunnuck (Mar 2016)

90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Lively, with wet straw, white ginger, white peach and apricot notes driving along, carried by a twinge of matchstick through the finish. Drink now. 3,000 cases made." – JM (Feb 29, 2016)
