Winery Domaine Houchart

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

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
