How it's made

AOP Costières de Nîmes, the most southerly Rhône appellation, describes the wine growing area to the south of the ancient city of Nîmes and the Western Rhône delta. Soils consist of gravel deposited on sand by the Rhône and Durance rivers. This southern Rhône classic is made from selected Grenache and Syrah grapes harvested at optimum ripeness and sourced as a result of the enviable relationships Boutinot has built up with a number of growers from the region over the past decade.
