Tasting note Michel Gassier Nostre Pais
In the beautiful and creamy Nostre Païs you will find no fewer than five different grape varieties specifically from the south of France: Grenache, Carignan, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Syrah. According to owner Michel Gassier, his red wine offers a distinctive terroir expression due to the low yield in the vineyard and the optimal ripeness of the grape. Consultant and winemaker Philippe Cambie, nicknamed 'the Pope of Châteauneuf' and 'monsieur grenache', has left his mark on this magnificent rhone wine.
A small part of the wine is aged in oak barrels and the wine is bottled unfiltered. We are not quick to make the comparison, 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 vineyard of Nostre Païs has several similarities with those of the well-known greats: the large boulders, the grape varieties and the poor soil. The microclimate is slightly different, with cooler nights in particular, so that the grapes retain a little 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: in the meantime, a top-quality bottle costs at least thirty euros. But luckily we have affordable alternatives from the same region for you, 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.
