Chateau Grande Cassagne Rose Costieres de Nimes 2008
Working in Costieres de Nimes, just past the western edge of the Rhone valley, the Darde brothers produce rich, structured, Rhone-styled wines that come with refreshingly low price tags.
The best bottlings rely heavily on Syrah. The rose is also a consistent winner. Also look for the Cuvee Cassanus, a blend of Roussanne and Marsanne.
