Nemausa Rouge 2016 Costières de Nîmes - Domaine de la Patience


Domaine de la Patience is a classic story of a new generation of winemaker, taking over the family estate and turning it into a brilliant success. Before 1994, all grapes were sent to the local Coopérative and that is when Christophe Aguilar decided to start bottling again at the Domaine. He then expended the vineyard, renovated the equipment and finally converted it to organic agriculture. Hard work, real passion for wine and a great terroir were the keys to his achievement.

Nemusa is the classic Costières de Nîmes cuvée produced by the Domaine: an excellent easy-drinking red, with black fruit, spice and animal notes as well as a slighlty liquorice touch on the finish. No need to keep it for ages, it’s made to drink now, with any red meat grilled on the barbecue!

Wine Advocate Robert Parker

90/100 "A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, the Costieres De Nimes Nemausa is a solid, straight forward effort that gives up quality cedar, dried pepper, sandalwood and sweet red and black fruit. Soft, supple and nicely quaffable, enjoy it over the coming 2-4 years." (previous vintage)

Wine Spectator

86/100 "A lighter-bodied, traditional style, with subtle dried cherry and plum fruit notes lined with hints of cedar and bay. A peppery edge livens up the finish. Drink now." (previous vintage)
