Tasting Notes

Deep purple red colour, warm nose of black and red confit fruits and cassis on the palate with bitter liquorice and dried herbs. The wine is lighter bodied than you expect and makes it a very easy to drink yet flavoursome red wine. Made of local organic grapes, which were grown on sandstone type of soil to ripen fully and deliver this gorgeous organic red wine.

Food match: excellent with game, duck or rib steak; will pair well with poultry as the wine is medium bodied and will be good with flavoursome veggie dishes.

ABV: 13.5%

Location (village and region): Beaucaire, Costière de Nîmes

Grapes: Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Marselan and Carignan

Certified organic and suitable for both vegetarians and vegans, no allergens used in production 

Mourgues was originally a Provençal name for Ursuline nuns, the farm originally having belonged to a convent near the village of Beaucaire. With Mont Ventoux visible from the top of the vineyard slopes this is a region that feels closer to Provence or the Rhône than the Languedoc.

The sun shines all year long, ensuring that the grapes reach optimum maturity. Two winds adjust the climate; Southern breezes in August refresh the leaves and relieve the vines during the hottest days while the Northern wind, The Mistral, is a precious health-bringing ally for environmentally-friendly vineyards. Cold and dry, it dries out the vines.

Named after “Les Grès” a specific terroir of covered by “galet roulés”, or sandstones, coming from a glacial moraine that was deposited along the Rhône river. Consequently, Costières de Nîmes has a substantial layer of “grès” that superimposed on a subsoil of calcareous clay and limestone.

  • Manual harvest on the steepest slopes, machine harvested on the plateau
  • Destemmed
  • Macerated for 8-15 days
  • Malolactic fermentation
  • Matured for 12 months in concrete tanks
