Presentation of the vineyard
Château Mouresse is located in the Var department, not far from the village of Vidauban which is widely regarded by certain as "the Rosé wine Mecca". Here are grown seven different grape varieties; Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon for red wines, Cinsault and Grenache for the Rosé and Rolle, Sémillon and Clairette for the white wines. The vineyard is owned by Chrisophe and Hynde Bouvet and represents today 25 hectares of land.
A very beautiful light salmon pink color. A scent of cirtus fruit, red fruit with some floral elements of hawthorn. A round, fruity and harmonious palate with good length. Fits through an entire meal from appetizers to dessert.
