"One of the most impressive estates in the Costières de Nîmes; a treasure-trove of value-priced wines…" - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
A winding road meandering alongside the slopes of the "Costières" leads you to the picturesque Chateau Mourgues du Gres & its beautiful vineyards in the midst of orchards and garrigue. As a young man; wine maker Francois Collard moved away to Bordeaux to work at the world famous Chateau-Laffite in the Medoc. In 1990, he returned to the family estate with a dream of making the best wines in the region.
The vineyard site is made up of flat pebbles called Grès and is planted with a mixture of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Roussanne, Viognier and Grenache Blanc. Les Galets refer to the large stones (also found in Châteauneuf) which heat up during the day and release their warmth at night. This Galets Dorés, is Grenache Blanc with Roussanne and Vermentino, expressing white flowers and ripe citrus fruits.more ↓ less ↑
