Natalie's Score: 91/100
Château De Nages 2015 is medium-plus red wine blend of mostly Grenache with Syrah and some Mourvèdre grapes from "vielles vignes" in the Costières De Nîmes, Rhône wine region. Produced by Michel Gassier, it's juicy, smooth and layered. The grapes were de-stemmed and both the Syrah and Mourvèdre components were matured for 1 year on the lees in French oak barrels. The Grenache portion is kept in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness. This AC wine was bottled without filtration. Incredible value from this estate.
Food pairings: roast leg of lamb with rosemary and garlic, grilled meats, tourtière.

|Cherie Cole rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Beautiful Southern Rhone blend comprised mostly of Grenache (75%), this wine presents delicious dark cherry, licorice and baking spice. Medium-bodied with medium tannins and a long, smooth finish, I would pair this wine with roasted red meat or lamb.
|Produced by Michel Gassier, Château De Nages 2015 is a great value under $20 spicy blend of mostly Grenache, along with Syrah and some Mourvèdre grapes from "vielles vignes" in the Costières De Nîmes, Rhône wine region. Wine grapes are de-stemmed and both the Syrah and Mourvèdre components are matured for 1 year on the lees in French oak barrels. The Grenache portion is kept in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness. This Costières de Nîmes Vielles Vignes has ripe black raspberry and cake spice flavours on the palate and finishes with wild violets and dried herbs. Alain Jaume and family have been making wine since 1826 from various terroirs in the Rhone Valley. The wines are only lightly filtered to preserve most natural deposits that add richness and concentration to the wine, but are harmless (decant). - Community Wine Reviews|
