Michel Gassier Costières de Nimes Lou Coucardié 2010
Appearance: Its dark color, almost black, announces a wine of great concentration. Nose: Powerful and extremely complex, it displays a wide array of aromas such as dark berries, spices, eucalyptus and vanilla welded in great harmony. Taste: Rich and velvety, without being heavy, this wine pulls its finish in a aerial display of fresh fruits and ripe tannins.
The nose showed ripe mixed berries, sweet spicy cookie and chalky minerals. On the palate, it was soft like velvet yet juicy. It balanced its 14.5% alcohol very well, as blackberry jam and violet candies massaged the senses. The finish was long and enjoyable with ripe berries and herbs.
