More information about Lou Coucardié Rouge AOP - Michel Gassier

The Lou Coucardié Rouge AOP Costières de Nîmes from Vignobles Michel Gassier presents itself inky, almost black in the glass and unfolds its powerful and complex bouquet. This convinces with a harmonious interaction of black berries, spices, eucalyptus and vanilla.

This red wine cuvée from the Rhône has a full and velvety body, yet does not seem heavy and perfectly combines power and elegance. The silky, perfectly integrated tannins lead into a long finish with plenty of freshness and fruit.

Vinification for the Lou Coucardié Rouge AOP Costières de Nîmes by Vignobles Michel Gassier

This cuvée is made from hand-picked grapes of the Mourvedre, Grenache and Syrah varieties, which come from certified organic farming. 

The grapes are cold macerated and fermented by adding native yeast. Before aging on the lees for 24 months, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation. Bottling is done without prior filtration.
