From the Rhône in your glass
In the south of the Rhône valley, between Nîmes and Arles, is the small wine region of Costières de Nîmes. The domain Mourgues du Grès is considered one of the references of the region. François and Anne Collard make their beautiful, organic wines not far from the Rhône River, on the Beaucaire plateau.
Both the name of the domain and the name of this wine refer to the special terroir of Costières de Nîmes. In the vineyards, just like in the famous Châteauneuf-du-Pape vineyards, there are large flat stones called 'galets' or (locally) grès. It is these stones that provide the characteristic minerality in the wines of Mourgues du Grès.
The rosé is an assembly of syrah, grenache and mourvèdre. Due to the poor soil, the yields are of course low. This benefits the flavor concentration. The wine is made according to the saignée method. For this, the grapes are first lightly crushed, followed by a short skin soak. The juice that flows from the grapes without pressing is intended for the rosé. The short contact between the peels and the juice creates the somewhat darker rosé tone. Except shortly before bottling, no sulphite is added to the wine, which limits use to an absolute minimum.
The Mourgues du Grès rosé is fruity and elegant with a beautiful minerality, pepperiness and structure. This makes it very suitable to drink with a meal. A perfect combination with typical southern French dishes, such as salad niçoise, tuna tartare or fried red mullet with tomato and olives.
