Le Clairon des Anges Costières de Nîmes, 2018
Clarion des Anges - the call of the Angels to this heavenly Southern Rhône red made possible as a result of Boutinot's thirty years of experience sourcing and making wine in the Southern Rhône.
60% Grenache Noir, 40% Syrah
|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.
Distinctive balsamic aromas lead to a herbal palate. Notes of liquorice, sweet spices and dry leaves on the finish.
Perfect with hearty casseroles or try with cheeses.
