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 our
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.
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.
