Michel Gassier Costieres de Nimes Lou Coucardie Rouge 2009

Member Review by Tyler Worth:

87 points. It’s strawberry red in the glass, with a medium viscosity. There are sweet strawberry aromas that are almost identical to the real thing. An inviting kitchen spice tone and rich vanilla scents open up with a soft spin in the glass. A stronger whirl around opens up lots of lemon curd, rose petal, and melon. This is one of the most complex and interesting aromas that I have found in a rose in this price range, in France, or anywhere else, with its ripeness and perfect crispness. Delicate melon and strawberry flavors greet the palate, followed by soft, peachy tones, and a firm minerality. There is the faintest touch of watermelon, before moving into a core of soft violets and an almost creamy finish. This is a very nice wine with excellent structure and perfectly crisp minerals. This is an impressive wine regardless of price, but at just under $8.00 this is unquestionably worth buying.

Our land – the beginning and the end A family of winemakers for four generations now, we are intimately connected to our land. By striving to live in harmony with nature we achieve a personal equilibrium and give meaning to our lives. The Mediterranean – our culture The Mediterranean is the cradle of our family. We have been nurtured by its strong and unique cultures, passionate and at times unbridled, yet always turned towards humanity. The family rock “We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.” We are but a link in a chain, receiving and then transmitting, following the path of generations past. Solidarity, trust, commitment, and love nurture the human spirit to tackle even the most ambitious projects. Read less
