Hauts de Bonpas, Costières-De-Nîmes
Origin: Nîmes, Rhône Valley, France
Blend: grenache, syrah, carignan
Producer's notes: Located near Avignon, on the Costieres plateau (between Nimes and the Camargue region) at the heart of the Rhone Valley, the fortified stronghold of Bonpas, from the French “Bon passage”, has watched over the safe crossing of the Durance River along the historic route that once linked Rome with Avignon. The estate marks the gateway to the southern Côtes-du-Rhône appellations and opens its gates to the discovery of the region’s terroirs. Its sophisticated, elegant wines embody the terroirs and varietals of this famous region through their power and fruitiness.
Visual: intense garnet in colour.
Nose: lovely notes of fresh red fruit, opening up to aromas of liquorice.
Palate: Soft and full-bodied from the start, with flavours reminiscent of red fruit and mild spices. The velvety tannins support the rich, unctuous aromatic palette of this wine.
