Pierre Vidal’s
beautiful expression of the Costières de Nimes appellation, a little-known sub-region at the southernmost edge of the Rhône
valley with a history of wine production that dates back to the ancient Greeks. IA typical blend of 60% Grenache with roughly equal parts of the Syrah and Mourvèdre grapes, this is a fleshy but elegant wine, with an enveloping core of spicy dark berries and a firm grip of tannins. But beyond the fruit, it’s the expression of the soil that gives the wine its true identity.
The Platonic ideal of a “food wine,” this big-boned
red is best appreciated with rich and hearty dishes.
Pierre is both a grower and a nègoçiant. In some years he buys fruit from the neighboring vineyards in St. Gilles, among 24
subzones of the appellation, in which you find a large Benedictine Abbey, stemming from the 7th century – a prolific
winemaking enterprise for its day. Pierre studied at the great winemaking school “Jules Guyot” at the University of
Bourgogne in Dijon. He brings to his winemaking style a sense of precision and elegance. Wines are unfiltered and grown
organically. Sulphur use is at a minimum
