Henri de Constance

AOP Costières de Nîmes

Details of the wine



The soils are highly typical of the appellation with large smooth stones from alluvial deposits from the Rhone and Durance rivers on a clay-limestone subsoil.


Grapes varieties

The varieties are typical of the appellation: 75% Syrah and 25% Grenache.



The grapes are harvested when perfectly ripe then destemmed. Maceration lasts 18-20 days with perfect temperature control and careful extraction of the aromatic and polyphenolic elements (pumping-over and delestage). When malolactic fermentation is complete, the wines are racked twice and blended. Then they are left to mature in vats for 8 months.


Tasting notes

This is a wine to love for its deep colour highlighted with purple, its bouquet of small red fruit like raspberry and blackcurrant and its full generous mouth. Serve at around 18°C. Goes well with white meat and barbecues.
