LOU COUCARDIE 2009 COSTIERES DE NIMES

ROBERT PARKER 90-93 POINTS - "The outrageously complex, dense purple-hued 2009 Costieres de Nimes Lou Coucardie is fashioned from a blend of 60% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache and 10% Syrah aged in French oak on its lees for at least 12 months. The most limited offering, its blue/purple color is followed by aromas of toast, white chocolate, bay leaf, black currants, blackberries and a hint of coffee. This full-bodied, deep wine admirably demonstrates the potential of Mourvedre in the Costieres de Nimes. It should drink well for a decade or more.

Costieres de Nimes is a treasure-trove for value hunters. Moreover, there are a lot of high quality vignerons and domaines in that sun-drenched, Mistral-blown appellation just south of Chateauneuf du Pape. Michel Gassier is one of the stars of this appellation and he makes a number of cuvees that all merit attention."
