Costières de Nîmes rouge, Grenache de Bek, Michel Gassier - 2016

2016 is the greatest vintage Michel Gassier has seen in his 23 years as a winemaker! Moderate yields, a hot and dry season with exceptionally cool nights produced perfect grapes. From a great terroir, the wine has a complex bouquet of raspberry, rose and garrigue. Dynamic, with a velvety feel and very fine tannins, it has a long, racy finish. 94/100 Jeb Dunnuck; 17/20 Bettane & Desseauve

Viticulture

Bek is truly a unique terroir, where the classic Rhône soil structure does not exist. Due to a geological loop, the ancient seabed is close to the surface, alternating outcrops of sand and chalk under a thin layer of pebbles. From the oldest Grenache plot overlooking the Camargue, the wine is produced only in exceptional vintages and released only after 36 months of aging.

Oenology

Selection of old Grenache grapes with naturally low yields. Hand-picked with double sorting and incorporation of whole bunches (60%). Fermentation by indigenous yeasts without addition of So2. Long maceration (30 days) and manual punching down by the cap. Aged on lees for 12 months in demi-muid and concrete tanks for a further 6 months. A single bottling without filtration and minimal addition of So2.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Beef aiguillette - Lamb couscous - Grilled meat - Cheese.
