2012 Costieres de Nimes Tradition, Chateau Vessiere

This exceptional red was chosen for our list over many grander names from the Rhone Valley. The Grenache/Syrah blend of grapes is similar to the blend used in many Cotes du Rhones, but we think that Chateau Vessiere's red offers a little more than its similarly priced neighbours. Most notable is a delicious herbal character which complements the blackberry and damson fruit flavours on the palate. It has a great level of intensity and generous, soft texture.
