Producer: Costieres de Nimes
Mas de Bressades is a leading domaine in the Costières de Nimes. It is run by the Marés family, having been established by father Roger Marés in the 1970s. Marés had owned the property since 1965, but only got around to replacing the fruit and almond trees with vines in 1977. His son, Cyril Marés now looks after the property, having first gained valuable experience working for Chalone in California and Bruno Prats in Chile. The vineyards cover 22 hectares in all, with a wide variety of varieties planted, including Viognier, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon alongside the more usual 'improving varieties'. This red from a blend of Grenache and Syrah is a lovely almost Rhone style wine with a peppery nose and palate. An excellent food wine.
