Wine Description:

A tremendous value offering from the Costières de Nîmes, undergoing 3 month aging in new French oak barriques with periodic battonage.

Tasting Note:

The wine is indulgent and creamy, oak apparent, but there’s fruit to match. It’s full-bodied, with ample concentrated juicy nectarine and pear fruit. It has a long, natural, acidic finish.
