Still in demi-muids (they're pushing the élevage with this cuvée), the 2016 Costières de Nîmes Lou Coucardié is a blend of 50% Mourvèdre, 30% Grenache, and the rest Syrah. It boasts a rich, full-bodied yet incredibly elegant and seamless profile that’s every bit as good as just about anything you can find in the Southern Rhône in 2017. Offering lots of cassis, black raspberries, toasted spices, and cured meat notes, this beauty has solid mid-palate depth and sweet tannins, and while it’s going to drink nicely right out of the gate, it’s also going to age gracefully for over a decade.
