Costières de Nîmes: Château Roubaud Rouge 2022
The red Costières de Nîmes wine from Château Roubaud is made from a blend of roughly-equal parts Syrah, Grenache Noir and Carignan. Bursting with ripe garrigue fruit over earthy tannins and scrubland scents, this crowd-pleasing, chest-thumping red wine is the perfect foil for robust, rustic dishes - cassoulet or pot au feu spring to mind.
This is a classic, red Costières de Nîmes wine - alluring garrigue berry aromas and an earthy, dark, autumnal fruit palate with warming, spicy undertones and supple tannins.
