Winemaker Notes
Deep red with plum highlights. On the nose, pure and complex, cherry aromas with subtle peppery and flinty notes are released with a bit if aeration. On the palate, the dynamic and velvety body fills the palate and reveals notes of black fruits, dried herbs and pencil lead. The fresh and fruity finish is heightened by mineral notes and fine tannins.

Critical Acclaim
91 POINTS - 2014 - Wine Spectator
One of the bigger, richer versions of this cuvee, the 2014 Nostre Païs Costières de Nîmes (35% Grenache, 25% Carignan, 20% Syrah and the rest Mourvèdre and Cinsault) was fermented with one-third whole clusters and aged in equal parts 500-liter barrels and concrete tanks. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by terrific notes of blackberries, blackcurrants, roasted herbs and licorice. It has serious mid-palate depth, integrated acidity and present, yet ripe tannin, all suggesting it will evolve gracefully for at least 4-6 years.
