"This experimental cuvée represents the essence of my work as a winemaker. I seek to explore uncharted territories, with the hope of finding the most original expression of my terroir. Baptized after an old regional tradition of bull games, 'Lou Coucardié' is that fierce male bull defending a set of horn attributes in a crowded arena. Strong and courageous, he represents the ideal of his race." —winemaker

Blend: 48% Mourvèdre, 30% Grenache, 22% Syrah
"The 2011 Costieres de Nimes Lou Coucardie is composed of 60% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache and 10% Syrah. It reveals the meatiness of ripe Mourvedre blended with the voluptuousness of Grenache, and the color and structure from Syrah. One of the finest wines I have ever tasted from the Costieres de Nimes, it exhibits a dense purple color along with notes of incense, camphor, vanillin, blueberries and blackberries intermixed with hints of truffles and asphalt. Enjoy this super red wine over the next decade." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

"The richest and most concentrated cuvee, the 2011 Costieres De Nimes Lou Coucardie, which was bottled earlier in the year, offers up aromas and flavors of ripe black fruits, chocolate, graphite, licorice and hints of smoked herbs. A blend of 48% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache and 22% Syrah that spent 12-18 months in French oak, it is a serious, layered and textured effort that was hard to spit. While hard to resist now, it should have a broad drink window as well." —Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate
