90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"A blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah that's brought up all in concrete tanks, the 2015 Côtes du Rhône Cercius is a gorgeous, sexy and seamless Southern Rhone that offers loads of sweet cherry, black raspberries, lavender, licorice and Provencal herbs in its medium to full-bodied. hard to resist style. It goes down way too easy, and is a total steal at the price. Buy a case..."
Vinous Reverie Notes
The Costières de Nîmes is politically part of Languedoc but its terroir is part of the Rhône valley and while most of the vineyards Michel Gassier farms are located here he also tends vines further inland and closer to the Rhône river – hence its Côtes-du-Rhône designation. Based on Grenache, with a small portion of Syrah, Cercius comes from a warm terroir of deep limestone soils topped with galets.
