Details

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. The Syrah vines are more than forty years old; advantageous in hot years such as 2003 and 2005 when the well-established root systems could probe the clay calcareous marl in search of moisture. A full bodied wine of honesty and simple, easy drinking pleasure.

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.

  1. How good is this wine?

    John21/03/2017

    A full bodied wine that goes well with lamb - particularly roast lamb. It comes from Nimes in southern France, which is the home of serge fabric (known as serge de Nimes - shortened to denim) but is much softer than your average pair of jeans. The aromatic Syrah (from old vines) is full of red fruit flavours which go nicely with the meat (and the redcurrant jelly).
