Located in Costières de Nîmes, south of the Rhone Valley, Michel Gassier strives to produce handcrafted wines that express “the nuances of their soils and the sincerity of their winemaker”. As a winemaker, he believes that the less intervention, the more the terroir can express itself. Working with instinct and intellectual rigor, the goal of Domaine Gassier is to further the understanding of the terroirs, only doing what is essential at precisely the right moment, thinking outside the box and avoiding simplistic recipes. That, for Michel Gassier, is how you can produce great wines. He says it is also a matter of teamwork, a duo that he forms with his wife Tina; together they’ve chosen the exceptional terroirs to have given birth to the wines of Michel Gassier.
The 2019 Côtes Du Rhône from Michel Gassier is a deep ruby red colour. Aromas of ripe black fruit, violet and licorice intermingle harmoniously on the nose. Full and velvety, it reveals flavors of blackberry, cassis and hints of thyme and rosemary. Its finish is endowed with a fine grain of tannin and a pleasant freshness. Enjoy this wine over the next 4-5 years.
