TASTING NOTE: An 80-20 blend of Grenache and Mourvèdre, the 2017 Costieres de Nimes Rose Vieilles Vignes is a zesty, dry wine that shows the affinity these two varieties have for rosé production when grown in proximity to the Mediterranean. Medium-bodied, it delivers scents of red berries, barely ripe melon and citrus, underscored by bright acidity and a distinct, briny-citrus zest edge to the finish. Drink Date: 2018.
