"Gorgeously textured" Highly Rated Rhone Red
Rhone Report 92-94
"Offers up a complex bouquet of ground pepper, underbrush, spring flowers, and assorted meaty qualities that are supported by a rock solid core of black and blue fruit. Full-bodied, gorgeously textured, and very long, with fine tannin showing more and more with air, this blockbuster 2011 will be approachable on release, yet will also age gracefully."~Jeb Dunnuck
Robert Parker 92
"The 2011 Costieres de Nimes Nostre Pais is even better. Made from an intriguing combination of 30% Grenache, 20% Carignan, 15% Mourvedre, 15% Cinsault and a handful of other varietals, it offers up an opaque ruby/purple color as well as a sweet perfume of spring flowers, blue and black fruits, exotic Asian spices, earth and incense. This pure, fruit-driven, beautifully textured, complex effort should drink well for 5-6 years."
