North-facing parcels make a ‘cool’ terroir in the Mediterannean climate, which gives a lot of vivacity to the wine. Similarly, controlling the temperatures during the entire cycle of fermentation and ageing allows the wine to conserve its fruitiness and freshness. The wines are vinified without sulphur for more purity and fruitiness. A slight addition at bottling to assure the stability of the wine. Fruity and fresh full of Sunshine.

 

Notes on the producer

A former agricultural estate of the Ursulines de Beaucaire since the 16th century, the estate owes its name to the nuns called ‘Mourgues’ in the Provençal language.‘Grès’ comes from the rounded rocks of the Costières de Nîmes that give our wine their character. All their actions, be it in the vineyard or the cellar, are guided by the mindfulness of nature, and respect for the terroir and the environment being certified organic since 2004. The ‘Galet’ are reminiscent of their terroir of rounded stones known as ‘grès’. Modelled by the moraine of the Rhône glacier in the Quaternary Period, they characterise the Costières de Nîmes in the south of the Rhône Valley.
