« A beautiful Syrah, the 2013 Costières de Nîmes Terre d’Argence comes from a mix of limestone and rolled stone soils and spent 18 months in tank. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by abundant dark fruits, chocolate, licorice and peppery herb-like aromas and flavors. These flow to a medium-bodied, balanced and beautifully textured 2013 that has tons of charm, sweet tannin and a great finish. At [this price] it’s a steal. » (Wine Advocate 2016 - Robert Parker)

Wine rated (guide 2016) : 90/100 (Vin formidable)

About this wine : Jolie Syrah, le Costières de Nîmes Terre d'Argence 2013 vient d'un mélange de calcaire et de galets roulés et passe 18 mois en cuves. Sa couleur rubis/pourpre intense est suivi par un fruité noir abondant, des arômes de chocolat, de réglisse et d'herbes poivrées. Ils guident vers une bouche mi-corsée, équilibrée et joliment texturée, avec beaucoup de charme, des tanins doux et une superbe finale. A ce prix, c'est une affaire !

About the vineyard : Véritable pionnier du renouveau qualitatif de l’appellation, ce domaine dispose de terroirs variés dont il joue pour faire des assemblages équilibrés entre finesse et structure. D’un très haut niveau qualitatif, les vins ne cessent de progresser. En été, François et Anne Collard proposent des circuits pédestres et VTT autour de la propriété avec découverte de leur terroir, de la flore et de la faune de la région. Ça mérite le détour!
