Château D’Or et De Gueules  Qu’es aQuo  

This wine is a blend of 90% Carignan and 10% Grenache with a extremely low yield 15 hl/ha

TASTING NOTES: A beautiful dark red color, this wine has a pretty straightforward, floral nose, with soft and silky tannins. Very full and round mouth. Notes of black fruit on the nose, and on the palate a sumptuous mix of red and black fruit. Complex and elegant.
FOOD PAIRING: Beef or lamb

Reviews for 2012 Château D’Or et De Gueules  Qu’es aQuo

91 Points Wine Advocate

Made from old-vine Carignan and aged all in older barrels, the 2012 Costieres de Nimes Qu’Es Aquo sports an inky purple color to go with fabulous notes of blueberries, spring flowers, violets and lavender. These all flow beautifully to a medium to full-bodied, pure, supple and nicely textured 2012 that has excellent freshness, good texture and a great finish. Drink this beauty anytime over the coming 4-6 years.

Solid and gutsy, with licorice snap, blackberry coulis, plum sauce and fruitcake notes that bounce through the juicy, graphite-edged finish. Drink now.

 

Reviews for 2011 Château D’Or et De Gueules  Qu’es aQuo

89-91 Points Wine Advocate

The 2011 Costieres de Nimes Qu’es A Quo may be Diane de Puymorin’s finest cuvee in 2011. It offers lots of dusty, earthy, garrigue notes intermixed with black currants, raspberries, truffles and earth. This fresh, lively, medium to full-bodied 2011 is an impressive wine for the vintage. Both vintages should drink well for 4-5 years. Proprietor Diane de Puymorin fashions these individualistic, seriously endowed, distinctive wines from different blends, and bottles them with Provencal names (which are not that easy for most Americans to pronounce). Except for La Charlotte, all of the wines carry the Costieres de Nimes appellation, and they represent some of the finest wines of that appellation. They are all bursting with the essence of Provence in their spiciness and exuberance.
