Tasting note Michel Gassier
Dry white wine from the South of France with an aroma of apple toast and flowers. The taste is powerful and combines very well with freshwater fish poultry or pork.
Nostre Païs white wine has the same flavor profile as the rare white châteauneuf-du-pape. In wine production, less is better!
Gassier therefore selects its oldest vines grenache blanc, roussanne, viognier, clairette and bourboulenc; grape varieties that already have a low yield by nature. Immediately after fermentation, about half of the harvest ripens in small oak casks for six months. The other half retains its freshness in large tanks, giving the final assembly a refined wood dosage.
In our opinion, this is a grandiose southern Rhone wine that is impressive and distinctive both with and without a meal. Sommeliers love it because of its great culinary applications. They make the most beautiful combinations with classics from the French cuisine, such as lobster or fish in cream sauce.
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 advisors to leading châteauneuf-du-pape producers such as Clos de Caillou.
Forty kilometers from the famous wine region, Gassier makes masterly 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!
