Costières de Nîmes is at the southernmost part of the Rhône Valley, sitting 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 eminent drinkability. The estate's history traces back to the 12th century when the winery produced wine for the pilgrims of Saint Jacques de Compostelle who were traveling the Santiago de Compostela. The property is now owned by 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 Rouge is a blend of Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache Noir. The terroir consists of large pebbles from the Durance river, which long predates the Rhône. Average age of the vines is 25 years, and the vineyard is about 20.5 hectares. The wine is aged in concrete vats for 6-9 months. This is a terrific barbecue red with plenty of ripe black fruit, peppery spice and pipe tobacco. The winery is certified Terra Vitis (sustainable).
