Almost all from the estate Bec Vineyard in the southern part of the appellation, the 2016 Costières de Nîmes Nostre Païs is a blend of 55% Grenache, 25% Syrah, and the rest Mourvèdre, Carignan and Cinsault. Orange peel, black raspberries, exotic flowers, spice, and a limestone-like minerality all flow from this elegant, seamless, medium to full-bodied 2016 that has both freshness and richness. It’s a no-brainer purchase and will drink nicely for 5-6 years.

A Grenache-led blend, the 2016 Costieres de Nimes Nostre Pais features compelling aromas of crushed stone, black olive and blueberry. It's medium to full-bodied, with crunchy, fresh fruit and silky but firm tannins. It should drink well through 2025.

Ripe, with a fresh and open feel to the mix of raspberry and red currant coulis flavors, infused with garrigue and tobacco accents on the finish. Features pretty perfume throughout. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignan and Cinsault. Drink now through 2020. 3,000 cases made, 1,200 cases imported.

Made from 55% Grenache augmented by Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignan and Cinsault, this massive, mouthfilling red bursts with black-cherry flavor. It's opulent, with touches of glycerin, but hints of dark herb, smoke and nut lend elegance. The finish is marked by fine, delicate tannins.
