Costieres de Nimes Mougues de Gres Les Galets Rouge, Organic, red fruits, full bodied Southern French red. 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. The Galets Rouge is predominantly Syrah with Grenache, a touch of Carignan and Mourvèdre. Notes of violets and bubbling with aromatic red fruits.

A full bodied wine of honesty and simple, easy drinking pleasure.
