Though Costières de Nîmes is one of the oldest viticultural areas in France, it isn’t until recently that it received the recognition it deserves. The 2011 Château Virgile is an exceptional rich and concentrated blend of 60% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 10% Mourvèdre. The nose offers intense black fruit aromas with hints of spice and olive notes. In the mouth the wine is dominated by dense black cherry, plum, and cassis fruit flavors, complemented by hints of black pepper and ripe tannins that give the wine its structure.
