It is a sun-drenched land, a land marked by water. The AOP Costières de Nîmes is part of the Rhône Valley vineyard with a production of 50% red wines, 40% rosés and 10% whites. This is the singularity of this AOP with three colours, where the winegrowers showcase their know-how with passion. Some 70% of the appellation’s wine production bears the Organic and HEV (High Environmental Value) designations. The 2022 vintage expresses great quality with a nice freshness in the whites and rosés, while the reds are still marked by a pretty colour, very tempting aromas and tannins.
Beautiful bottles make great gifts! There’s still plenty of time to build up your cellar in anticipation of the Christmas holidays. Meanwhile, enjoy a glass or bottle at the table of the Costières de Nîmes "ambassador" chef restaurateurs. Vincent Croizard, the talented Nîmes chef suggests remarkable food/wine pairings.
Take note! Raw and cooked mushrooms from the undergrowth are combined with miso in a clear Petits Paris broth, and a creamy egg, to be served with the “La Muse” (2021) white from the Gallician Signature cellar. The "Les Agapans" (2019) red from Domaine de Poulvarel is perfect on a beef fillet marinated in Panniyoor pepper, then roasted in a clear hay juice, accompanied by a creamy sweet and sour tartlet, with "green and purple" beans in a hearty sauce.
For the grand finale, try the pumpkin pie with pecan crumble or the pumpkin sorbet with orange zest and a pumpkin seed biscuit, all delicately accompanied by "Idole" (2021), a Château Beaubois white wine made from four Rhone grape varieties. A full festive menu! Many other delicacies are awaiting you, lovingly prepared by artisans of taste, the creators of emotions, on this Camargue soil caressed by the majestic Rhône River.
