2015 Ermitage "Victor" Costières de Nîmes Rosé

SKU #1252853

Costières de Nîmes is at the southernmost part of the Rhône Valley, on the opposite bank of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. One of our best new finds is Château de l'Ermitage which produces three terrific values with imminent drinkability. The estate's history traces back to the 12th century when the winery produced wine for the pilgrims of St-Jacques de Compostelle who were traveling the Santiago de Compostela. The property is now owned by the Castillon family, and today Michel and his son Jerome manage the vineyards and winemaking. The "Victor" is named for the first member of the Castillon family to own the property. The Rosé is a blend of 50% Syrah, 30% Grenache Noir, and 20% Mourvèdre. The soil consists of large pebbles from the Durance river which long predates the Rhône. Full of fresh fruit and lively acidity this is great for spicy or exotic cuisines. The winery is certified Terra Vitis (sustainable).

A few shades deeper than many of our roses, yet not quite a Tavel, this pretty, utterly delicious rose from Ermitage develops nicely in the glass, imbued with harmonious tones of nectarine, cherry and succulent red berries, played out against a scaffolding of delicate spice and bright acidity. A nice aperitif for the holidays, it can edify any table and add to the merriment of those who gather around it. Cheers!

Located in Costieres de Nimes, right across the river from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, this impressive rosé is crafted from Syrah (50%) Grenache (25%) and Mourvedre (25%). Robust flavors of fresh red berries and a slight pepper spice combine with a creamy texture and the perfect acid finish. So good…so refreshing!

Costieres de Nimes is directly across the river from Chateauneuf-du-Pape and the vineyards consist of large pebbles just like that famed appellation, yet the wines are far more affordable. This is crisp, very complex, super refreshing and amazingly food friendly. Here is a juicy, spicy easy to gulp summer bottle to buy by the case.

The best Rose value of the summer is back! For just $10 this gem made from a classic Rhone blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre shows tons of fresh but ripened red berry character, and true to its roots, a peppery, spicy edge that lends complexity and verve. Pair with BBQ chicken or wood-planked salmon for the perfect summer meal.

Rhone Blends



- 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.


- 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.
