Chateau Roustan Rouge Costieres de Nimes 2008
Fresh and fruity. A "thirst-quenching" wine that is a little tannic but mellow.
Barbecue, T-Bone steak, lamb chops, "cevenole" chitterlings sausage, matured cheese.
This wine is the flagship product of the domain. It symbolizes the Castillon family's capacity to extract the most from their soils with an honest to goodness fruity wine.
Aromas of ripe black cherry, mixed red fruit with layers of earthy minerality, and slight note of garrigue. Juicy, fresh and flavorful with lots of dark plummy fruit, dark chocolate, pepper and spice. Medium bodied, quite dense but not overly extracted. Smooth velvety texture and a long finish.
