A delicious assembly from Coteaux du Pont du Gard
Full dry white wine from the South of France. Full color, powerful aroma with nuances from ripe to overripe yellow fruit and honey. The taste is full, round and persistent, with mild acidity and a long, aromatic finish. Ready to drink from at least 1 year after harvest, easy to keep for 3 to 4 years.
The old sticks from Terre d'Argence
François and Anne Collard from Domaine Mourgues du Grès make their wines in Costières de Nîmes, between the Rhône and the Camargue. The grapes for their Terre d'Argence line come from old vines vineyards, providing richness and concentration. The name Terre d'Argence refers to this, as well as to the silver shine of the rustling leaves of the olive trees in the vineyard.
The blend for the white Terre d'Argence is special: it is a combination of Rhône grapes viognier and rousanne and the aromatic Sud-Ouest grape petit manseng. Because the latter grape is not allowed in the AOC Costières de Nîmes, the wine is 'declassified' to IGP Pont du Gard. However, it is anything but a lesser wine!
Because the sticks are old, the yields are low and the grapes are therefore very concentrated in taste. After the fermentation, in which no sulphite is used, the wine matures for another year, one third in wooden barrels. It gives a luscious, rich white wine, with ripe fruit, roundness and minerality. Drink it preferably with meals, from poultry and white meats to curries and spicy cheeses.
