Diane de Puymorin left a corporate career in Paris to found a wine estate in southern France. A lifelong overachiever, she studied the terroirs and selected the very best for her new home: Domaine de la Petite Cassagne in the Costières de Nîmes. She lost no time in establishing herself as a leader of quality, with her wines among the best in the appellation.
She’s accomplished all of this in a relatively short time and all while diligently practicing eco-friendly methods. The vineyard is farmed organically, the winery is powered through solar energy, she even goes as far as ensuring all of her materials are recyclable and label inks are water-based! Needless to say, details are very important to her and it shows in the quality of her wines.
The Domaine de la Petite Cassagne Costières de Nîmes Rouge 2015 is a blend 40% Grenache, 40% Syrah, 10% Carignan, and 10% Mourvèdre. It opens with aromas of black cherries, roasted chestnuts and dark chocolate which give way to notes of espresso, dark fruits and subtle herbs. This amazingly rich wine pairs perfectly with hearty stews, beef roasts, and nearly any autumn dish.
