Costières De Nîmes, Southern Rhône

Domaine de Poulvarel

Les Perrottes Costières-de-Nîmes Red Rhone Blend 2017

A GSM with the Syrah as top dog. Complex aroma of river bank, damask rose, strawberries, melons, and banana laffy taffy. Lots of wet forest too. Flavors are dense, intense and unfamiliar. Slightest hint of dried high acid bananas like they have in Brazil. Bloody steak from the Syrah. Herbal as well. A lemon thyme or tarragon hit. Very dry and chewy. This is a lovely Rhône blend. Rich, elegant and confounding in a good way like an old French film. — a month ago

Vignobles du Soleil

Saveurs du Temps Costières-de-Nîmes Rosé Blend 2017

Faint strawberry and raspberry on the nose yield consistently mild fruit and a hint of acid at the finish. Nice complement to lamb, but a little thin on its own. — a month ago
