A winding road meandering alongside the slopes of the "Costières" leads you to the CHATEAU MOURGUES DU GRES, in the midst of orchards and garrigue. This former estate belonged to the Convent of the Ursulines before the French Revolution. In Provence, "Nuns" is "Mourgues" and "Grès" is "Pebbles". In the courtyard is a sundial with the motto "SINE SOLE NIHIL" (Nothing Without Sun) meaning that the sun ripens the grape to optimal maturity to produce balanced wines. Agricultural Engineer and Oenologist, I made my debut at Château-Laffite in the Médoc. In 1990 I decided to come back to the family estate to promote the local varieties of grapes in combination with the diversity of the soil. Our first red vintage wine bottled in1993 was the result of both traditional and innovative methods. Then our variety of wines was completed by a fine rosé, a drink that has become popular ever since. In 1999 I bottled my first white vintage. In 1995 my wife Anne gave up her career in urban planning to join me in this adventure and develop the marketing. National and foreign press regularly recognizes the quality, originality and consistency of our vintages. "One of the most impressive estates in the Costières de Nîmes; a treasure-trove of value-priced wines…" Robert Parker. This stimulating gratitude encourages me to continue the yearly challenge and to produce wines of Terroir, passion and pleasure.
