Natalie's Score: 90/100

Love the cedar-spice notes that wreathe the dark red berry aromas on the nose. Layers of supple, full-bodied flavour. Terrific balance and length. This blend or cuvée is matured in oak for about a year and leads with syrah. Attractive black plums and cedar spice on the finish. Decant 1-2 hours.

Food pairings: lamb cutlets, chicken, beef bourguignon, Tourtière.

Reviews and Ratings

The 2013 Costières de Nîmes is mostly Syrah with a bit of Grenache in the mix. Cedar-spice aromas and full-bodied, juicy dark fruit complete the wine. The wine was matured in oak for less than a year. Decant for an hour prior to serving if you drink it now, but it can cellar another five years to further develop and mature. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
