Description

A family estate in the south of the Rhône Valley, Château Mourgues du Grès is nestled between vineyards and orchards, at the foot of the Costières de Nîmes. The ‘Galet’ are reminiscent of the terroir of rounded stones known as ‘grès’. Modelled by the moraine of the Rhône glacier in the Quaternary Pe-riod, they characterise the Costières de Nîmes in the south of the Rhône Valley.A former agricultural estate of the Ursulines de Beaucaire since the 16th century, the estate owes its name to the nuns called ‘Mourgues’ in the Provençal language.

TASTING NOTES

Deep ruby, with purple hues while it’s young. Profound and vibrant, with notes of blackberries and
crisp blackcurrant. Generous and gourmand. Smooth, harmonious tannins in a wine where red berries, liquorice and violet mix. A mineral finish that contributes to the balance of the wine.

FOOD PAIRINGS

Grilled meat, tagine, rabbit with prunes and cheese.
