Château L’Ermitage Rouge ‘Auzan’, Costières de Nîmes 2016

 

Tasting Note

Giving wild thyme on the nose this dark, full-bodied wine has lots of red ripe fruit, sweet liquorice and roasted coffee flavours with peppery, savoury characters from the Syrah and Mourvèdre. Underpinned by chalky tannins the 2016 is less rustic than in some years and just as appealing.

Producer Details

The domaine is in the south of the appellation cooled by the sea breezes of the Camargue and on an ancient raised river bed with galets roulés soil. The vines are 25 years old and yields around 50 hl/ha. Grapes are de-stemmed and fermented traditionally for 15 days to ensure a good balance of fruit and tannins.

Food Recommendations


Côte de Boeuf, lamb cutlets with rosemary, saussison sec, mature hard cheeses.
