OLIVIER COSTE
Winemakers for 9 generations
Since his childhood, Olivier's favourite places to play have been the vineyards and the wine cellar at his family's wine estate founded in Pézenas. With this upbringing, he developed a passion for nature and Languedoc and South of France Wines. 
This 4-bottle bundle is the collection of his creation of single varietal wines from grapes typically grown in the Southern France.  These varieties are either rare, such as Carignan Blanc, or mostly hidden in the blends. By making them as single varietals, wine enthusiasts now are able to taste them in the authentic varietal manner, although it means some of the beautiful creations have to be downgraded to "Vin de France" without mention of their original terroirs. 
Fresh, fruit-forward and aromatic, these wines are made with love for those who enjoy wines for pleasure, or share with others. 

Originated from the South of France. Often confined to  rosés. Its versatility is proven with this red wine. This fruit-forward red wine comes from low-yield vines, which give concentrated and aromatic grapes. 

Vintage: 2019

ORIGIN: Valros, Hérault, IGP Pays d’Oc

GRAPES: Cinsault

SOILS: Villafranchian pebbles

TASTING: The best way to savour our wines is to invite friends over, open a bottle and enjoy the moment ;-).  This wine has fresh red fruit aromas and a hint of pepper on the fresh finish. Fresh and low tannic ( closer to Pinot Noir), it's an ideal wine for picnic or easy-going social gathering. 

Alcohol Content: 14%

OLD STAR- CARIGNAN NOIR

Carignan Noir is one of the great Mediterranean grapes. Today it may not be widely known. In old times, it was a Star in the Languedoc.

To capture the essence, yields are limited by growing vines on stony soil with traditional gobelet pruning. It gives rich dark fruit and spice notes with ample freshness.

VINTAGE:  2020

ORIGIN: Roquessels, Hérault, IGP Pays d’Oc

GRAPES : Carignan Noir

SOILS : Schist

ALCOHOL :  13.5%

TASTING: Carafe the wine for 15-20 minutes before drink.  The 2020 vintage has elevated aroma with heaviness tannin, yet remains fresh with lasting finish. This wine displays tranquil dark chocolate colour, aromas of rich dark fruit and spice, a very delightful wine after letting the wine breathe for a while. It pairs very well with dark chocolate for leisure, stir-fried black pepper beef, or your daily meals. Chill the wine before serving.

ILLEGAL -MOURVEDRE

"This wine comes from a small appellation that we love, but 100% Mourvèdre is illegal there. To allow you to discover it, we had to declassify it to "Vin de France.“ Et voilà! Now you can taste this wine full of fruit, spice and character."

                                                                                                           --  Olivier Coste

VINTAGE: . 2019

ORIGIN: great red wine terroir but illegal to talk about it. 

GRAPES:  100% Mourvèdre

SOILS:  illegal to talk about it

ALCOHOL:  13%

TASTING: Let the wine breathe for 10-20 minutes before drinking. Dark ruby red, a very clean wine. The nose of blueberry, violet, smoke, rose. Fresh, spicy but not spiky. Smooth on the throat. Layers of minerality in the mouth. Mourvedre can be "dangerous", thanks to the vigneron for making this wine 13%.  A pleasant red wine for leisure that goes well with snack bites or your daily meal. Chill the wine before serving.

RARE- CARIGNAN BLANC

Carignan Blanc is a rare Mediterranean grape varietal. Only 250 hectares remain, mostly in Languedoc. RARE-Carignan Blanc comes from a 70-year-old plot planted next to the sea.

We like it for its originality, vivacity, floral aromas and long finish.

VINTAGE: 2021

ORIGIN: Castelnau-de-Guers, Hérault, Vin de France

GRAPES: Carignan blanc

SOILS: Limestone

Alcohol Content:  12.5%

TASTING:   "The colour is pale and bright with a very faint greenish tinge and it has quite a delicate nose – lightly floral with pears and a whisp of herbs and citrus. The palate is rounded and supple, almost a little oily in texture like Vermentino or Sémillon, but with a backbone of citrus acidity and minerality to carry the juicy pear fruit and streak of green apple and white pepper.

It opens up in the glass, so give it swirl and allow it time to relax, then enjoy it as an aperitif or with sushi, fish, including fritto misto, or squid, light pasta dishes or salads and vegetables sprinkled with dukkah or served with walnut tarator sauce." - by Joanna Simon, a Wine & Food writer in U.K, author of "World of Fine Wine". 

This wine is fresh and floral with great minerality, a rare white varietal that matches vegetable salad well. It goes with white fish, seafood, poultry too.  Chilled for better experience.
