Tasting note Michel Gassier Nostre Pais
In the beautiful and creamy Nostre Païs you will find no less than five different specific southern French grape varieties: grenache, carignan, mourvèdre, cinsault and syrah. According to owner Michel Gassier, his red wine offers a characteristic terroir expression due to the low yield in the vineyard and the optimal ripeness of the grape. Advisor and winemaker Philippe Cambie, with nicknames such as 'the Pope of Châteauneuf' and 'monsieur grenache', has left his mark on this magnificent Rhone wine.
A small portion of the wine matures in oak barrels and the wine is bottled unfiltered. We do not make the comparison quickly, but we write this with full conviction: the red Nostre Païs competes with a refined châteauneuf-du-pape! In one word: great. Gassier makes masterful copies for a fraction of the price.
The Nostre Païs vineyard has several similarities with those of the famous greats: the large boulders, the grape varieties and the poor soil. The microclimate deviates slightly, with cooler nights in particular, so that the grapes retain a bit more freshness. Highly recommended!
Châteauneuf-du-pape has become one of the best wines in France for enthusiasts worldwide. You can tell by the price: a top-quality bottle now costs at least thirty euros. Fortunately, we have affordable alternatives for you from the same region, such as the costières de nîmes of the talented Michel Gassier. He works closely with Philippe Cambie, one of the best-known advisers to leading châteauneuf-du-pape producers such as Le Clos du Caillou.
