CHATEAU GRANDE CASSAGNE
Saint-Gilles, Rhône Valley
Costières de Nîmes AOC
45% Grenache, 45% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre
Lean and earthy, the climate of Costières de Nîmes is cooler than its neighbors in the Rhône, producing reds with great freshness and energy. The aromatics are expressive with dark red fruits, black pepper spice, and earth. With classic Syrah notes of bacon and soy sauce, the palate is lean and medium bodied followed by a dry finish.
POINTS OF INTEREST
Once considered part of the Languedoc region, these wines express sort of a hybrid between the rustic styles of the coast and the fruit drive styles of the southern Rhône. The Dardé brothers practice rigorous sustainable farming (HVE), with some parcels certified organic, while still maintaining great affordability and freshness. This fresh, unoaked style improves for three to six years after the vintage.
