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 have 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.

    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).
