2010 Michel Gassier Nostre Pais Costieres de Nimes Blanc. Drinkable sweetheart.
Pale yellow with a light green tint, indicating purity and freshness. The floral nose also has a hint of citrus and tropical fruit with minerality. These follow through in flavour, with fresh floral notes, juicy peach, a slight bit of grapefruit and minerals. Stylistically light but complex and well made.
90% Grenach blanc, 5% Roussanne, 5% Viognier. Grown in a terroir of pebbles and clay. Old vines. Manual harvest. 50% fermented in barrels and aged on lees during the 6 months in wood. Unfiltered.
