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 blend is 60% Roussanne, 30% Grenache Blanc, and 10% Viognier. The soil consists of large pebbles from the Durance river which long predates the Rhône and vines average 20 years. Expect a richer palate from the Grenache Blanc and Roussanne, with lovely aromatics from the Viognier. The winery is certified Terra Vitis (sustainable).
