Roussanne, Grenache and Viognier. The powerful display of complex aromas is layered with a multitude of surprising scents: white flowers, beeswax, sweet spices, star-anise, violet, and vanilla On the palate, the incredibly dense body, both soft and rich, delivers fully ripe fruits flavors. The finish is an aromatic bounty that offers a delicate harmony that you will long remember.

Wine AdvocateThe 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. Tasting 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.
