La Ciboise is the name of Michel's grandfather’s home which was the energetic centre of Chapoutier family and friends and this wine is intended to be enjoyed with friends and family to celebrate everyday life. Costiéres de Nîmes is the most southerly appellation of the Rhone. The ripe fruit and soft spices come through with pronounced yet soft, delicate tannins.

The soil is made up of pebbles deposited by the Rhône river during the Quaternary Period and referred to locally as “Gress”. The vines develop a very deep rooting system, digging down as far as the layers of clay.

The grapes are picked at phenolic maturity and harvested by machine. After destemming, the grapes are fermented in concrete tanks for three to four weeks. Each grape variety is vinified separately using traditional maceration. After a daily tasting, the wine will either be pumped over or left to rest, in order to gently extract the aromatic components, anthocyanins and tannins. At the end of alcoholic fermentation, the temperature is allowed to increase to 30-33°C to assist the polymerization of the tannins. 6 months in concrete tank.

Spicy, rich, fruit-driven partner for bold beef and chicken dishes with hot, tangy or fruity dark sauces, roast rabbit, Provençal tart or ribs of beef.

"The 2017 M. Chapoutier 'La Ciboise' from the Costières de Nîmes is similarly approachable. A blend of Grenache Noir, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Carignan, it's typically complex and full flavoured with ripe red and dark berry fruit, spice and herbs, enclosed in soft, smooth tannins."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator
