Graves Red

Château du Mouret is adjacent to Château Boyrein, formerly called ‘Château des Seigneurs de Gourges.’ The estate bears the name of a locality in the municipality of Roaillan and covers 22 acres of white and 10 acres of red wine varieties. Facing south and south-west, the vineyard is located on a gravel hilltop. Dormant for decades, it has been gradually restored by the Medeville family since its acquisition in 1973.

Grapes are destemmed and pressed before vatting. Wine batches are pumped every day during the fermentation. Temperature control. Vatting lasts 10 to 20 days. Then, after filtering, the wine is aged in vats and partially in oak barrel before being bottled.

Tasting notes
Garnet-red colour with shades of crimson, the nose reveals aromas of dark fruits such as blackberry and morello cherry. A supple attack opens in the mouth, succeeded by round tannins. This wine has volume and richness.

Suggested dishes
A good match with beef tartar or a duckling fillet with black fruits and a potato galette.
