Details

Costieres de Nimes Mourgues du Gres Galets Doree Blanc, biodynamic, floral, zesty white wine. Named after the particular stones (galets) that are found in that part of the Rhone valley, this wine is a lovely white full of Southern French charm. Clean and fruity, with a minerality and floral character. The mouth is lively with refreshing acidity, but silky texture. Sulphur is avoided until bottling, and biodynamic principals are followed throughout the winemaking process.

Mourgues du Gres is a medium sized domaine siuated just outside Nimes in southern France. It is certified organic and produces clean fruit forward wines which a heart felt Frenchness about them. 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 vineyard site is made up of flat pebbles called Grès and is planted with a mixture of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Roussanne, Viognier and Grenache Blanc. Les Galets refer to the large stones (also found in Châteauneuf) which heat up during the day and release their warmth at night, perfect for ripening those reds.
