Written By Treve Ring Libations / Red Wine Sep 23, 2009 Chateau Mourgues du Gres – Les Galets Rouges 2007 SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter PinterestCostieres de Nimes AC, France $18.99 BCLSI love, love, love it when I find a wine that drinks way beyond its price point. So I was pretty happy when I tried this little gem. This blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and old vine Carignan is from the Southern part of the Rhône Valley, and the vineyards are a few short miles from the Rhône River. The wine takes its name from the numerous galets – round, flat stones – that make up the terrain. And the minerality of the region comes through in the flavours of this wine, along with aromatic ripe, dark fruit, waves of floral notes, cocoa and peppery spice.Nice acidity throughout with a full body and lingering and satisfying finish. Tastes much more expensive than it is. Lovely to drink now – especially with braised meats or sausages – but will continue to gain complexity over the next couple of years.
