Rhône Blend, Château Mourgues du Gres 'Equinoxe'
Equinoxe refers to the balance of nature when the sun and the moon share time equally. The harvest of these grapes coincides with this change of season when the old vines offer up perfectly ripe grapes. All the aromatic complexity of their terroir is expressed through their old, low-yield vines (20-25 hl/ha). A distinguished and precise cuvee, it displays elegance and harmony rather than being a simple demonstration of power. Notes of black berries, scent of garrigue, cigar and incense.
Traditional vinification, maceration of 3-4 weeks in concrete vats. 18 months of ageing bring harmony, plenitude and finesse. 50% in 500-litre casks and 50% in 228-litre casks of one wine. No fining or filtration.
