Clos des Mourres is the project of Ingrid and Jean-Philippe Bouchet, who work in both Cairanne (a premier Cotes du Rhone village site) as well as 10 hectares in Vaison la Romaine - where this bottling hails from.
Our latest yummy and surprising hybrid - 2/3 white and 1/3 red - great at cellar temp or with a touch of a chill. Crisp aromatics of tart red currant and underripe cherries, the palate may lean a touch closer to a white wine with bright acidity. Delicate and energetic. From the sandy soils of Vaison la Romaine.
