2009 Château L'Ermitage Costières de Nîmes Blanc

SKU #1062605

From Chateau l'Ermitage in the Costieres de Nimes comes this juicy Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Viognier blend. The smell of fresh white fruits including peaches, pears, litchis and white flowers’ conjers up two words: Spring and summer! Grapes are picked up early in the morning to preserve their fruity aroma. All the harvest is destalked before being weakly pressed. Cooling of the harvest on reception of the grapes. The must is cooled to 6°C to clarify it naturally. The vinification is made at low temperature (16°C) then, the wine is aged on thin lees to accentuate the aroma of the Roussanne and the Grenache grapes. Enjoy this vibrant white on its own, with sushi or a crisp salad from the garden! 13% abv.

Additional Information:

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
