Costières de Nîmes

Very much Rhone wines, Costières de Nîmes’ reds, rosés and whites reflect the unique character of these wine-lands where everything naturally links back to the Rhône Valley. Costières de Nîmes wines are made from a variety of grapes. Reds and rosés are mainly based on traditional varieties such as Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and, more of a blending grape, Carignan and Cinsault. The whites are based on Grenache blanc, Roussanne, Marsanne, and also Clairette, Bourboulenc, Viognier, Macabeu and Vermentino (Rolle). In all three colours, the blend has to contain at least two varieties.[www.costieres-nimes.org/]
