"Its beautiful robe mingles deep gold and green hues. The powerful display of complex aromas is layered with a multitude of surprising scents: white flowers, beeswax, sweet spices, star-anise, violet, and vanilla. The incredibly dense body, both soft and rich, delivers fully ripe fruit flavors. The finish is an aromatic bounty that offers a delicate harmony that you will long remember." —winemaker

Blend: 50% Roussanne, 30% Grenache Blanc, 20% Viognier
"The richest and most textured in the lineup, the 2014 Costières de Nîmes Lou Coucardié is a blend of 50% Roussanne, 30% Grenache Blanc and 20% Viognier that saw plenty of skin contact, and fermentation and aging all in 500-liter barrels with plenty of batonnage. Tasking like a top flight Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc with its buttered citrus, citrus oil, white flowers and apple blossom aromas and flavors, it’s medium-bodied, has bright acidity and a similarly tight, fresh profile found in the Nostre Païs. It should show at its best next year and evolve for 2-3 years, possibly longer." —Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate
