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! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 20 days ago
Tasted blind. Light gold color. Dirty nose. Notes of citrus, stone, a little honey, some petrol and some leesy funk. Rich and elegant in the mouth, with lots of power that ramped up over the night. Toasty. More and more acidity. The dirty nose is a trigger for my guess (90 Niellon Batard) and while the "dirty" turns a little towards being corked over the night, the stuffing of this wine suggests it's one of the best old man Niellon has made in the last few decades.

Really hit the spot. Small pours to savor the fine bubbles. Bright front, long finish of fresh baked bread — 9 days ago
2018. Pale straw color. Light citrus aroma. Very crisp, tart and mineral with flavors of citrus and apple/pear. Moderately long finish. Hugely drinkable as a summer wine (or anytime)! — 2 days ago
