Michel Gassier Nostre Païs Rouge is a deep red colour with violet highlights. Pure and complex on the nose, the aromas of black fruit, cherry, and hot stones, are released with a bit of aeration. The dense & velvety body fills the palate and reveals notes of cacao, dried herbs and pencil lead. The fresh and fruity finish is heightened by mineral notes and fine tannins.
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.
