Natalie's Score: 93/100

Produced by Michel Gassier, Lou Coucardié 2016 is a dry, full-bodied, smooth and intense red wine blend of 50% Mourvèdre, 30% Grenache and 20% Syrah. Look for ripe and dense blackberry, deli meat, anise, nutmeg and cracked pepper spice flavours long and harmonious on the palate. The wine was matured two years in 500-600 litre oak barrels. A Rhône red from the Costierès De Nîmes from a great vintage. Pour with prime rib.

Rouge food pairings: pork tenderloin, roast chicken, goose, grilled game sausages.
