Domaine de Nizas - $13.00

Domaine de Nizas Overall Rating: Value:

A lovely rich blend with nice body as well. Bouquet is intense (Viognier) with aromas of citrus, rosemary honey, white peach and fennel. On the palate it's well-balanced, clean and crisp. The Rousanne sees a touch of oak but its very subtle. A great wine with chicken, white meats or fish, grilled but also great with an herby cream sauce.

History Domaine de Nizas is located in the South of France, on the outskirts of the village of Nizas near Pézenas, in the heart of the historic Languedoc region. The estate was purchased in 1998 by John Goelet, descendent of the distinguished family in Bordeaux. He identified the exceptional terroir of Pézenas as the ideal site to craft high-quality artisanal wines that express the spirit of the Mediterranean.

  • Tintero Moscato

    #2 Tintero Moscato

    Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible. (behind by 11 bottles)

  • Bonavita Red

    #3 Bonavita Red

    Made from four grapes harvested later than usual to achieve a greater ripeness and smoothness. A deep and inky wine, with ripe plum and blackcurrant aromas. Nice ripe fig and cherry with chocolate and licorice flavors. Just enough oak to give it some backbone. (behind by 4 bottles)

  • Castelfeder Pertico Rosso

    #4 Castelfeder Pertico Rosso

    Such a pretty little wine! Deep, ruby color and a intense aromas of cherries, tobacco, blackberry. Just a little oak to mellow things out . The Cab and Merlot bring just a touch of richness and licorice but the Lagrein has the leading role with its bright red fruit flavors. (behind by 6 bottles)

    Lightly sparkling, fruity and sassy, Poquito is small in size but big on taste. Delicate floral aromas combine with a sweet yet refreshing palate of ripe peaches, pears and apricots.
