One of the best-kept secrets of the southern Rhône is the town of Nîmes. Just 30 miles from the Mediterranean, the town enjoys the coastal influence in the midst of Roman architecture, including a small coliseum still in use. This family estate is located in the Costières de Nîmes between Nîmes and Avignon. After managing the winemaking at a local cooperative for a decade, Christophe Aguilar began to make his own wines, organically farming 60 hectares of vines in the same soils his grandfather farmed 50 years ago. The estate name refers to “la patience”, an aromatic wild herb growing throughout their vineyards. Bright notes of red berries, rose petals, crushed herbs, and citrus zest dance across the palate, finishing clean and dry. Certified organic.
