Low intervention & Bio-Dynamic
Costière de Nîmes

From the importer: 

Barely twenty years old, Emilie and Brice took on a serious, 27 ha project of abandoned vines in a place close to our hearts, the Gard. In their first year, 2003, they had a vintage, and have been refining ever since - slowing down, paring back, intervening less. They've cut down to 15 ha, hundreds of olive trees are also being planted and all the vineyards have been converted to biodynamic agriculture. Manual work is the priority and the sheep work during the winter. The wines are full of character and have a lift and exuberance completely outside of what I've tasted from Costière de Nîmes. That may have something to do with the influence of their friend and collaborator, Eric Pfifferling of Domaine L'Anglore's fame.
