A rich substantial and serious red the 2009 Michel Gassier Costières-de-Nîmes Lou Coucardie is a blend of 60% Mourvèdre 30% Grenache and 10% Syrah that was aged for close to 18 months on lees in French oak barrels. The wine exhibits a deep inky color as well as brilliant rich aromatics of crème de cassis spice graphite chocolate and earth. While decidedly rich and leaning into the decadent realm this stays beautifully fresh and focused. Full-bodied on the palate and structured with layers of fruit and texture impressive balance and a classic clean finish this superb wine can be enjoyed now but should evolve positively for 2-4 years and have 10-12 years or more of prime drinking.
