Varietal: Mourvedre

Mourvèdre is a fascinating and ancient grape varietal, thought to have been introduced to Spain by the ancient Phoenicians over two thousand years ago. Since then, it has found a home in many regions of France, and has gone on to be a key grape varietal in the New World, where it is often blended with Grenache and Syrah varietals to make a beautifully rounded and balanced red wine. The Mourvèdre grape itself is renowned for holding a complex set of flavours, which are often described as meaty or gamey, with plenty of bramble fruit notes. As such, they are often served with dark meats, and are enjoyed in many countries across the globe. The grapes are not the easiest to cultivate, as they require plenty of sunshine alongside well irrigated soil. However, their quality and unique attributes mean that wineries all over the globe continue to persevere with this special varietal.

Region: Provence

There are few places in the world quite as evocative as Provence, famed across the globe for its cuisine and wine culture which stretches back through history for over two and a half thousand years. Ever since the ancient Greeks came to this Mediterranean region of France, it has been prized by several cultures for its fantastic viticultural potential, and remains an important and popular wine producing region to this day. Provence is most famous today for its rosé wines, most commonly made with the Mourvedre varietal grapes which grow in abundance on the rolling hillscapes of the region. Helped by its beautiful Mediterranean climate, Provence proves itself time and time again to be a reliable producer of wonderful rosé wines, as well as characterful red and white varieties packed full of flavor and history.

Country: France

It is widely understood and accepted that the finest wines in the world come out of France. Whether you are drinking a vintage bottle from one of the famed Grand Cru wineries of Bordeaux - such as Chateau Margaux or Chateau Lafite-Rothschild - or a more simple and affordable bottle from one of the lesser known appellations in Burgundy, the likelihood is that the wine is packed full of intense and interesting flavors, and has a fine, balanced structure typical of almost all French produce. This reputation for excellence is taken extremely serious by the French, with dozens of regularly updated laws and regulations ensuring the quality and accurate labeling of wines. Such dedication and passion for fine wine, representative of the region in which it is produced, means customers can be assured that when they buy a bottle from France, they are buying something almost certain to please and delight.
