Costieres de Nimes is the southernmost appellation in the Southern Rhone, just before it turns into the Languedoc. It had originally been part of the Languedoc, but in 1998, the growers’ syndicate petitioned for it to become part of the Southern Rhone, arguing that their wines had more in common geologically with the latter region. The production is mostly red and rose. The red and rose wines are made from Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan, and Cinsaut, with Carignan making up a maximum of 40% of the blend. The few white wines are made from typical white Rhone grapes, such as Clairette, Bourboulenc, and Grenache Blanc. Ugni Blanc is not allowed.
