Tasting notes

Cherries berries, light spices and floral tones in the nose. The taste is lively, loaded with juicy cherry- and berry fruit. Some spicy notes (clove, cinnamon, liquorice) and minerality in the middle. A lovely, easy drinking red for every season. Chill it a little in summertime. I taking more time than earlier years but certainly a great vintage. [November 2019]

Quote & Reviews

Joe Czerwinski/Wine Advocate :”A facile, easygoing 50-50 blend of Grenache and Syrah, the 2016 Costieres de Nimes features ripe cherries, black olives and some tarry accents. It’s light to medium-bodied, with gentle tannins and a softly dusty finish. You might even serve this slightly chilled in the warmer months.” [juli 2019]
