Mourgues du Grès Galets Rouges 2021
This blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre is like a bottled celebration of the Mediterranean climate in the South of France. It’s medium bodied and supple, with fragrant dark fruit and wild herb aromatics. We happily drank it on its own, but get some slow cooked lamb in play and you’ll be truly replete.
Chateau Mourgues du Grès is based in Costières de Nîmes, in the south west of the Rhone valley in France. It’s in the same part of the world as the Pont du Gard, that ancient Roman aquifer you probably studied in high school classics. The Latin motto of this estate is ‘Sine Sole Nihil’ meaning ‘nothing without the sun’. These sundrenched, stony organic vineyards are cooled by the famed winds of the mistral, ensuring the wines are ripe but also fresh.
