Overview

The Costières de Nîmes is politically part of Languedoc but its terroir is part of the Rhône valley and while most of the vineyards Michel Gassier farms are located here he also tends vines further inland and closer to the Rhône river – hence its Côtes-du-Rhône designation. Based on Grenache, with a small portion of Syrah, Cercius comes from a warm terroir of deep limestone soils topped with galets.
