Tasting 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 can be traced 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).

    This dry, light salmon-colored rosé is a wonderful and delicious treat. Pretty floral aromas lead to light, soft, clean and crisp flavors. It will drink well alone or with light foods. The only problem with this wine is that it might be too easy to drink.
