Under its original label, this gorgeous Rose has scored 91-points from Jeb Dunnock every year since 2016. His review of the 2019 pretty much sums up the program: The 2019 Costières De Nimes Vieilles Vignes Rose is rocking stuff, and possibly the finest rosé I’ve tasted from the Costières de Nimes...I’d put it up against any Provençal rosé out there.
As I have mentioned previously, 2021 (which is the wine on offer today), was an all-around fantastic vintage for whites, reds and rose so you'll just have to trust me on this one.
Sourced from 80+-year-old, head-trained Grenache and Mourvedre vines, this beautifully structured Vielles Vignes Rose is crystalline and gorgeous, as well as fantastically mouthwatering.
Blood orange and white peach are complexed with perfumed lavender, lemongrass and orange blossom. Generous and elegant on the palate this wine has a core of fleshy white peach encased in a steel beam of chalky, mineral-laced acidity sprinkled with grenadine, lilac and a fantastic white pepper retro-nasal blast. Mouthwateringly delicious with perfect fruit acid tension, this dynamic Rose will knock your socks off!
100% estate, organically farmed, 80-year-old vines.
85% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre
