Winemaker Notes

Lou Coucardié Rouge is about 50% Mourvedre, a variety that Michel Gassier is championing in the Costières de Nîmes for its ability to produce elegant wines in even the ripest of vintages, with the remainder Grenache and Syrah.

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Seeing just under two years in barrel, the 2013 Costières de Nîmes Lou Coucardie is 50% Mourvèdre, with the balance Grenache and Syrah. It was fermented with 40% whole clusters and aged all in 500-liter barrels and demi-muids. Tight, structured and tannic, with medium to full-bodied richness, it offers notions of liquid blackberries, leather, chocolate, graphite and crushed rock. It’s good, but it needs 2-3 years of cellar, at which point I suspect it will merit an even higher rating. It will have 10-15 years of longevity. Rating: 93+ Points.

Michel Gassier Winery Image
In the northern Vaucluse, on the right bank of the Rhone river lies the village of Visan where the legendary mistral winds of Provence sweep over the vines. The Latin name for these north-northwest winds is CERCIUS – the defining feature and raison d'etre for partners Michel Gassier, Philippe Cambie and Eric Solomon to launch this new project. Between the brisk winds and an elevation of 400 meters, the grapes' freshness is protected and then preserved during vinification in concrete tanks.

Gently rolling hills covered by large, round stones on south-facing slopes, Costieres de Nimes is a substantial IGP zone that was formerly considered part of the Languedoc. Today it is included as a section of the southern Rhone; its climate, topography and wines put it more in line with that appellation. Grenache is its most important red variety, along with Mourvedre, Syrah and Carignan. Half of the production here is rosé.
