92 points and $8

What a fantastic Rhone Value. Sometimes a deal isn't too good to be true. We weren't sure how the 2013 Gassier Nostre Pais White would be holding up so we ordered a case to check. I have to say it is still lovely, over time this wine has developed a wonderful nose, just a hint of petrol, while maintaining a bright fresh fruit profile in the mid pallet and finishes as crisp and clean as the day it was released. Don't hesitate to stock up on this great closeout opportunity.
Check out this price!

2013 Michel Gassier Nostre Pais White....$7.99
Lowest price online is $18.99

One of my favorite whites from the region, as well as a year in, year out value, the 2013 Costières de Nîmes Nostre Païs Blanc is 60% Grenache Blanc (always from the same parcel) and the rest Clairette, Roussanne and Viognier. Fermented one-third in barrel and aged eight months on lees, it offers fabulous notes of stone fruits, buttered citrus, white flowers and honeysuckle to go with a medium-bodied, fresh, lively and pure style. While it doesn’t skimp on texture, the focus is more on freshness and purity.
Rated 92/100 The Wine Advocate
