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.

  • Michel Gassier Costieres de Nimes Nostre Pais Blanc 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Lemon meringue, peach and green apple aromas, somewhat simple but pronounced and pleasant. This has a tart, round and creamy palate of grapefruit, lemon and pear with restrained oak spice and zesty acidity yielding to dried herb towards the finish and a slow fading warmth. Read More

  • 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
