Winery Notes:
Vignobles Michel Gassier joins our ancestral estates in a single desire: make captivating wines that express the essence of our grapes & their terroirs that nourish them. Currently in conversion to organic farming, our Rhône valley vineyards are counselled by Philippe Cambie. Discover award winning wines that express the passion of their wine maker at Château de Nages & Domaine de Molines.

On the southern edge of the Rhone Valley near the ancient city of Nimes the legendary mistral winds of Provence sweep over the vines and out to the Mediterranean Sea. The Latin name for these north- northwest winds is CERCIUS – the defining feature and raison d’etre for partners Michel Gassier, Philippe Cambie and Eric Solomon to launch this project. The brisk cross winds protect the grapes freshness which is preserved during vinification in concrete tanks.

Tasting Notes
Straw yellow with soft green highlights. Very aromatic, predominantly aromas of citrus, flowers, and flint. Medium bodied and crisp, pairs well with roasted monkfish, paprika grilled game hen, and goat cheeses.
