Costières de Nîmes is the Rhone Valley’s most southern vineyard, descending to where the Rhone River meets the Mediterranean Sea. Here we benefit from the moderating effect of sea breezes. Freshness and purity of fruit is preserved and full maturity is guaranteed, especially for late ripening varietals.
Located close to Nîmes, our lands overlook the “miniature French Rome” and its watch tour, the Tour Magne, one of the oldest vestiges of the city.
Our vineyards sit upon the largest Villafranchian terrace in Europe. The top layer of our terroir is made up of stony deposits from the Rhone called “Gres” (to a depth of 5 to 25 meters). Below are red iron-rich clay beds which retain water and help the vineyards in times of drought. Thanks to the composition the Costières de Nîmes subsoil, our deeply rooted vineyards are incredibly well-draining. Its northern exposure, facing the prevailing winds (the Mistral), and its “coastal” location, generate late ripening while maintaining freshness and acidity in our fruit and transmitting remarkable aromatic intensity.
