Secret wine: and the result is…

Here is the answer to the blind tasting: all three wines are from the appellation “Costières de Nîmes” which lies in the south of the Rhône Valley region in south-east France.

My guess was definitly in the south of France, with “Vin de Pays des côtes Catalanes” in Roussillon, “Côtes du Rhône village” in the Rhône Valley, and Bandol in Provence. I was not so far away as all these appellations can use the same grape varieties as“Costières de Nîmes” with grenache, carignan, syrah and mourvèdre.

Like traveling, it is not the final destination which is so important in a blind tasting but everything  on the path along the way.
