Beautiful Southern Rhone Blend, predominantly Syrah, very clean, vibrant and smooth ripe dark fruit. Pronounced tannins mixed with violet notes and a mineral finish. Very balanced. Like most of the southern Rhône, there is abundant sunshine, the weather is hot and mostly dry, and the Mistral wind helps to keep the vines healthy. The vineyards are covered with galets, the same round, flat stones that are famous in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The Costières de Nîmes is unique within the Rhône region because of the influence of the Mediterranean. The sea cools the nighttime temperature, giving the wines a lot of freshness. Since 2015, the winemaking has been carried out with a low sulfur intake for greater purity and brightness of the fruit. Very light filtration during bottling ensures the stability of the wines. The wine is matured for 7 to 12 months in epoxy-lined concrete tanks in order to best preserve its natural fruitiness. No added yeasts or sulfur during vinification or aging.

Minimal Intervention | Organic Hand Picked 

Alcohol 14.5%
Size 750 ML
Pairings Great with winter barbecue days, and charcuterie when entertaining. Of course, a Southern Rhone blend is good with roast beef or pork, but you can also pair this with family friendly meal options such as shepherd’s pie, grilled eggplant, or burgers. Enjoy now or age up to 3 years to experience its evolution.

About the Producer

Mourgues du Grès is run by Anne and François Collard. François’s father was the first owner and he made wine, but mostly sold grapes in bulk. François started his career in Bordeaux, working in the cellar at Château Lafite-Rothschild. In 1990, soon after the Costières de Nîmes received appellation status, François was inspired by the potential to make great wines from this little known appellation and he moved back to run the family winery. The first vintage bottled under the Château Mourgues du Grès name was in 1993.
