2007 Château Mourgues du Gres "Terre d'Argence" Costiéres de Nîmes

SKU #1048898

92 point from Robert Parker: "The 2007 Terre d'Argence, an unfiltered blend of 90% Syrah and 10% Grenache, possesses rich, ripe blackberry fruit notes intermixed with licorice and garrigue characteristics. Opulent, even flamboyant, this stunning 2007 should drink nicely for 3-4 years. One of the most impressive estates in the Costieres de Nimes (a treasure-trove of value-priced wines), Mourgues du Gres’ reds and whites are all worth checking out by consumers looking to maximizing their buying power." (Feb 09) This is probably the best Costieres de Nimes I have ever tried and believe me I have had many over the years. This region has always equated value and quality but Chateau Mourgues takes it to a whole new level. The Terre d'Argence is a specific terroir on the property from vines that are over 40 years old. This tour de force Syrah is deep, rich, loaded with fruit and has layers of complexity. 14% abv. (Keith Mabry - K&L Hollywood)

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
