|Beautiful ripe dark fruit, spicy and a full taste|
|Beautiful with leg of lamb or venison, but also just like that|
Trained as a geologist, Anne Collard, together with her husband François, owns the successful Mourgues du Grès wine estate in Costières de Nîmes. In 2018, she bought her own vineyards in the southernmost tip of the Côtes du Rhône.
About six hectares are planted with old vines Grenache (45%), Syrah (25%), Carignan (20%) and Mourvèdre (10%). Anne immediately started working on the vineyard organically – she even makes the wine in a biodynamic way. The vineyard is now in the second year of its three-crop conversion required for official certification.
Anne's ambition is to create a competitive quality outside the established cru areas such as Gigondas and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This is the first crop she thinks is good enough to bottle under her own label. The quality is nothing short of amazing. Especially after a few minutes of aeration in the glass, the clean aromas of 'garrigue' spiciness and ripe dark fruit are very tempting. The taste is powerful and ripe, without sweet notes and with sufficient tension from the tannins present and pleasant freshness.
In our view, this beautiful southern Rhone is a challenger to classically made mid-range Châteauneuf and Gigondas. And that for a price that is no longer feasible in these well-known areas.
Refined, full-bodied red wine to enjoy alone or with spicy dishes such as boeuf bourguignon, pot-au-feu or matured hard cheeses.
Deep ruby red wine with a complex aroma of blackberry, blackcurrant, bay leaf, pepper, toast and cocoa. Powerful and creamy in taste with good freshness and firm, round tannins. The final is persistent, smooth and spicy.
