Winery Chateau Pibarnon
The MourvÃ¨dre grape varietal has been grown in Europe for well over two thousand years, and is believed to have been brought to Spain by ancient Phoenician tradesman. Since those ancient times, it has been comfortably growing in several regions of France, and in recent years, has become a key New World grape varietal. It is commonly blended with Grenache and Syrah varietals, and lends an intensely fruity flavor to such blends. MourvÃ¨dre is not the easiest grape varietal to cultivate, and requires plenty of sunshine coupled with well irrigated, moist soils. However, it is also quite vulnerable to mildew, and as such presents plenty of challenges to vintners. The grape itself holds some fascinating flavors, often described as gamey or meaty, and with plenty of deep and complex bramble fruit and earthy notes.
