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.
In 2018 the region was blessed with harvest conditions of cool and sunny weather, a perfect Mistral and very little humidity. As a result the grapes harvested were perfectly healthy with an ideal maturity. The reds are bursting with fruit, have moderately deep color and extremely silky tannins. The 2018 vintage will be accessible early in a very seductive style.
