Costières de Nîmes Romane

Appellation d'origine protégée

This cuvée comes from a plot selection of Château Grand Escalion and is a lively and generous wine. Its blend of Grenache blanc, Roussanne and Rolle from young vines in Costière de Nîmes will charm you with its freshness and roundness.

Elegant and Aromatic

The year 2021 has had its share of climatic events in store for us: frost, rain – too much or not enough – and lack of sunshine. At Château Grand Escalion, the weather was just as rough with an episode of frost disrupting the vegetative cycle, rain and insufficient sunshine. Despite these climatic events, the harvest took place in a relatively usual way for our whites and our rosés which, with relatively low yields, offer a beautiful aromatic, elegant and fruity palette.

Costières de Nîmes Romane


40% Grenache blanc, 40% Roussanne, 20% Rolle.


The « Romane » parcel is located on clay-rich soil over a thick layer of Pliocene marl, well-adapted to retaining enough water to withstand the summer drought. These conditions are particularly suitable to the development of white grape varieties which benefit from an excellent water resource.


In order to retain all the finest qualities of the grapes, the harvest took place during the night-time and early morning hours on 1st and 2nd September 2021. Once the grapes arrived in the winery, they were immediately pneumatically pressed and the juices blended together. After a 48hr settling in tank at 12°C, fermentation commenced in tank and then finished in barrel. After 7 months in barrel, the wine has been bottled. Bottled on June 15, 2022. 3,967 bottles produced. Vegan Friendly.
