Costières de Nîmes

La Croix du Chêne

AOP Costières de Nîmes

 

Terroir

The soils are highly typical of the appellation with large smooth stones from alluvials deposits from the Rhone and Durance rivers on a clay-limestone subsoil.

 

Grape Varieties

75 % Grenache and 25 % Syrah.

 

Winemaking

The grapes are harvested when perfectly ripe then destemmed and cold-macerated for the time required to achieve the depth of colour wanted. After pressing adapted to the different types of grape, followed by settling, the must is fermented at controlled temperatures to enhance the expression of the fruit. When alcoholic fermentation is complete, the wines are racked twice and blended. Then they are left to mature in refrigerated vats for 4 months before bottling.

 

Tasting Notes

A delicate rose-petal pink with bright highlights, this rosé develops floral aromas and notes of citrus fruit in the nose. The mouth is supple and balanced. A rounded wine ready to drink. Accompaniment advices: Barbecues, cold meat and exotic food. Serve at around 10°c.

 

Ageing Potential

To be enjoyed withing a year of bottling.
