Michel Gassier

Nostre Pais Blanc Costières-de-Nîmes White Rhone Blend 2013

On this Sunday night I have opened the 2013 Michel Gassier Nostre Païs Rhone White Blend. A blend of 60% Grenache Blanc, 20% Clairette, 15% Roussanne and 5% Viognier. From Costières-de-Nïmes, France.

On the nose there is lemon curd, yellow apple, citrus, honey, beeswax, licorice and minerals.

On the palate there is lemon, white peach, pear, honeydew melon, fennel, limestone and wet gravel.

This wine is medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel, medium+acidity and a long citrus mineral finish. I hope everyone is doing well? Let's make the week ahead a beautiful one. Please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

Château de Nages

JT Costières de Nîmes Roussanne Viognier 2017

Deep minerality that carries into the finish. Strong notes of stone fruits and citrus. Subtler notes of fresh-cut grass and honey. Bright acidity but not overpowering, which also gives way to a medium body and a lengthy finish. A bit austere compared to other Viogniers I've had, but unsure if that's the style, the Rousanne, or the vintner. — 14 days ago
