Chateau Mourgues du Gres is situated in the Costieres de Nimes region of the southern Rhone Valley. The estate is run on organic lines by former journalist Francois Collard who farms 40 hectares of vines in all, producing arguably the best wines in the area. This particular white is from the easy drinking 'Galets' range and is a firm favourite in our Saffron Walden shop. A blend of Grenache Blanc and Roussanne, it is aromatic and fresh and would make an excellent choice for an aperitif. Alternatively serve with seafood or a tart goats cheese.
Pale straw-yellow in colour. The Grenache Blanc provides aromas and flavours of apples with a hint of aniseed. The notoriously temperamental Roussanne grape adds concentrated floral notes and an elegance to the palate. A fresh, floral wine with a crisp finish. Serve with panfried scallops with a lime and ginger reduction, snails in garlic or a salmon mousse.
