Les Eparpillees ‘La Belle Pierrie’ Costieres de Nimes 2015

Blended Red from France - Other
Review Date : 29-Aug-2017
Full, even, dark ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, youthful in appearance. This has a fresh and moderately intense, but vibrantly fruity nose of lifted raspberries and confectionary notes from whole berry fermentation. Medium-full bodied, the palate has bright, aromatic and intense fruit flavours of dark raspberries and cherry fruit lifted by confectionary, floral and jam notes. The fruit has penetration and reveals spice and dark herb elements that add interest. The sweet fruit is underlined by light, grainy tannin providing texture and linearity, and the wine carries to a moderately long finish of dark raspberries and herbs. This is a vibrant, lively, aromatic Costieres de Nimes with raspberry and cherry fruit lifted by confectionary and jam notes on a grainy, linear palate. Match with antipasto, tapas and Mediterranean fare over the next 3 years. A blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah fermented to 13.5% alc. 25% of the wine aged in oak. 16.5+/20 Aug 2017 RRP $19.99
