K&L Notes

Costières de Nîmes is at the southernmost part of the Rhône Valley, on the opposite bank from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. One of our best new finds is Château de l'Ermitage, which produces three terrific values with eminent 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).

    The uniquely high iron content of the stony gravel and pebbly soils, coupled with the proximity to the Mediterranean creates wines of greater depth and concentration that would be expected in a region that straddles both the Rhone and Languedoc. After discovering the remarkable value found in the Ermitage Rouge for several vintages, the rosé proved just as delectable, flavorful and vibrant, framed with notes of ripe peach, strawberry and spice, with enough luscious acidity on the crisp, inviting finish. Open this delightful rosé on a picnic with cold roast chicken or a mouthwatering paella!
