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.

  • Tortoise Creek le Charmel Costieres de Nimes 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Inviting smoky aromas have a red fruit character of cherry and some plum and blackberry with a floral framing that keeps the whole nose quite light. In the mouth it's juicy and earthy in the same breath, with more cherry and blackberry fruit, excellent balance and acidity, well integrated oak and good spice. Still quite youthful and vibrant, an ... Read More

  • Louis Bernard Costieres de Nimes Blanc 2014

    Snoothrank:

    This very modest white from the mouth of the Rhone is made from a combination of typical grape varieties of the Val du Rhone. Pepper is evident on entry along with tropical fruit such as pineapple and pear. This wine has a slight hardness associated mostly with youth, but is tasty and an excellent bargain - having been reduced to half price by... Read More

About a third of the production are rosés and some fabulous food-friendly rosés (or rosé d'assiette as the French call them) are produced in this area. See here f...

  • Tortoise Creek le Charmel Costieres de Nimes 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A bit peppery on the nose and while oddly jammy this comes off as slightly under-ripe aromatically with aromas of leather and herb laying over the spicy currant base notes. Smooth and soft in the mouth, this really floats across the palate with that same slightly under-ripe quality found on the nose. I happen to like this more savory side of Syr... Read More
