Tasting notes Château Mourgues du Grès Rose
Beautiful salmon pink hue and a pleasant aroma of small red fruit and ripe apple. The taste is round and full and develops aromatic and tasteful.
In the south of the Rhone Valley, between Nimes and Arles, lies the small wine region of Costières de Nimes. The Mourgues du Grès domain is seen as one of the region's references. François and Anne Collard make their beautiful, organic wines not far from the Rhone 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 (local) 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 returns are naturally low. This improves the taste concentration. The wine is made according to the saignée method. For this, the grapes are first lightly bruised, followed by a short peeling. The juice that flows from the grapes without pressing is intended for the rosé. The short contact between peels and juice results in the somewhat darker rose tint. Apart from shortly before bottling, no sulphite is added to the wine, so that use is limited to an absolute minimum.
The Mourgues du Grès rosé is fruity and elegant with a nice minerality, peppery and structure. This makes it very suitable for drinking with meals. The combination with typical Southern French dishes such as salad niçoise, tuna tartar or fried red mullet with tomato and olives is perfect.
