Château Gassier

Esprit Gassier Côtes de Provence Rosé Blend 2017

This is awesome. Tons of strawberry and peach on the nose with the little bit of herb. I was worried that the palate would be overly sweet, but it is absolutely not. Beautifully balanced. Probably my favorite rose so far — 3 years ago

Really nice nose and decent depth. Crisp and dry like it should be. Bottle went by nice and easy. Yes! — 3 years ago

Syrah

Total Wine and More - $14.99; highly recommended: 2/3/17 - nice every day. Fruit forward and light at the start. Finishes strong with some light complexity. — 6 years ago

Château de Nages

Reserve Costières-de-Nîmes Rosé Grenache Blend 2015

Outstanding value that over-performs. For $10 you get balance, acidity, and crispness. Grapefruit zest and cotton candy on the nose and the pallet exhibits strawberries, cranberries, lemon, and a refreshing finish. Great for this time of the year! To add to it, everything Michael Gassier is making under this label is receiving high accolades.

Cheers!

Les Halos de Jupiter

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2014

This pops with vibrant strawberry and kirsch, but continues reverberating with incense, citrus peel, damp chalk, and licorice. I would happily spend $15 again, but this gives me the confidence to trade up to Halos Gigondas or Chateauneuf du Pape the next time around.

Finally trying this label... Considering the esteem to which I hold Philippe Cambie and my love for Grenache, it's been a long time coming. Cambie, along with a Michel Gassier, produce Grenache-focused bottlings from nearly all the Southern Rhone AOCs under the Halos de Jupiter label. To Cambie, Grenache is the king of all grapes, thus the comparison to Jupiter (Zeus in Greek), forming the basis of the label. The halo symbolizes the appellations that best express the personality of Grenache. http://www.philippecambie.com/en/les-halos-de-jupiter/

@Tom Casagrande But Parker stopped reviewing Southern Rhone, handing the reins to Jeb Dunnuck, so maybe Cambie's wines are now Jebberdized or Dunnucked 😜 But seriously, I get your point and while I might disagree with term, his wines are certainly extracted fruit bombs. Whose Grenache from Southern Rhone do you prefer?

Any wine made by a member of the Reynaud family! . . . if you can find them. Chateau de Tours CD-R is probably the least hard to find. Fonsallette CDR (not the Syrah one) is the bomb, but $$$ and hard to find. As an appellation, I find Gigondas to have a lot of traditionally made Grenache predominant wines at reasonable prices.

@Tom Casagrande Indeed, Rayas lights it up top to bottom.
