Mourvèdre

Said to be of Spanish origin, Mourvèdre arrived on the French coasts in the Middle Ages where it found a climate it could thrive in. It is a highly esteemed southern grape variety that is grown exclusively along the Mediterranean coast, between Perpignan and Fréjus, where it yields some of the region’s finest wines.
It requires sunshine, heat and proximity to the sea in order to achieve its full potential. Mourvèdre is above all a finicky grape whose cultivation is tricky. The red wines it produces are of excellent quality and boast deep colour. They are aromatic, spicy and structured, suitable for ageing. When vinified as a rosé, it yields structured, complex wines.

  • TastingGorgeous, intense red in colour with crimson nuances, Les Jamelles Mourvèdre starts off with very fruity flavours of strawberry, peach and currants on the palate.
    It features spicy aromas reminiscent of wild Mediterranean herbs, notes of marzipan, honey, lavender, thyme and bay leaf along with a hint of roasted meat. On the palate, it is surprisingly long and full bodied with well-balanced tannins. The finish is almost sweet, giving an impression of velvety smoothness. The spicy and herbal notes are present from start to finish. This is a wine that boasts a great deal of character and power.
  • Food & WineServe at 18°C. Catherine Delaunay likes pairing our Mourvèdre with a lamb tajine, steak with pepper sauce, game or moussaka. It is also excellent with cheese, especially goat’s cheeses.
