External Reviews for Chateau Grande Cassagne Costieres de Nimes Rose
A pure style, with watermelon seed, rose water and white cherry notes lined with a tangy hint and backed by a lingering stony finish. Drink now.
Lurid orange-pink. Zesty red berries and white pepper on the incisive nose and in the mouth. Shows good clarity and decent concentration, picking up a subtle floral nuance with air. Finishes on a tangy note, with lingering spiciness and a hint of orange pith.
The Dardé brothers are well known for their exemplary red wines of deep concentration. However, their best-kept secret may be their Rosé. Made from three grapes, the wine exudes red fruits and a strawberry perfume. This Rosé is a blend of 60% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre and comes from tiny berries of forty-plus year old vines. Fermented a short time on its skins, it retains an electric pink color, soaring aromatics, and fully dry palate. Serve well chilled!
