2007 Château d'Or et de Gueules "Les Cimels" Costières de Nîmes (Previously $15)

SKU #1062732

The Château d’Or et de Gueules is situated in the doorstep of the Camargue region, 4 kms from the village of Saint Gilles on the southern slope of Nîmes. The red stony soil and the exceptional climatic conditions (251 days of sun every year) give the grape a maximum maturity, allowing the production of fruity wines with velvety tannins. Blended from Syrah, Carignan and Grenache at controlled yield levels, this wine has a deep purple colour and offers notes of red fruit and sweet spice. It is supple and elegant. 14% abv.

Holiday wine at its best, it even has the appropriate packaging! Round accessible fruit backed up with just the right amount of spice. Perfect with a wide range of foods, delicious by itself.

While very good wish it was a bit more restrained. My guess is id prefer this in a less big vintage. 88.

Rhone Blends

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.

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.
