Red Rhône Blend, Château Mourgues du Grès 'Terre d'Argence'
This wine is predominantly [70%] Syrah based from vines that are over 45 years old, complemented by old-vine Grenache [15%] and 15% Mourvedre. The vineyard has a perfectly full southern exposure, with a subsoil of marl and calcareous limestone and a substantial surface layer of galet stones provides exceptional ripening conditions for these vines year in and year out.
After a gentle maceration for 3-5 weeks, the wine is aged in concrete vats [65%], wooden vats [35%], and, for the fruit from the most-structured plots, barrel [5%]. No yeasts or sulfur are used during vinification or aging. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
