Wine of the Week - Saint Cyrgues Costières de Nîmes Rosé

Whether you're celebrating Easter or not, we have the perfect wine for your weekend. Our wine of the week is the very first rosé of the 2018 vintage - the Saint Cyrgues Costières de Nîmes Rosé. Light-bodied and fresh, this Syrah and Grenache blend is bursting with notes of spring-time flowers, wild cherry, and raspberry. This quaffable wine is perfect for your Easter brunch or for any sunny afternoon!

Costières de Nîmes (which loosely translates to ‘the slopes of Nimes’) sits at the nexus of the rocky hills of Provence and the sandy alluvial plains of the Camargues. Many of its areas feature the larger, flat, galets, the signature stones of Chateauneuf du Pape. Among the many value driven wines in the Langdon Shiverick portfolio, Chateau Saint Cyrgues stands out as offering very inexpensive product that punches well above its weight class. Located in Saint Gilles, which borders the Camargue region at the mouth of the Rhone River, Chateau Saint Cyrgues was built on the ruins of the Church of SaintCirice de Marge in 1654. Jean-Pierre Ferraud and his son Loic Ferraud now run the domaine, which has begun to practice 100% organic viticulture and vinification.
