Mourre du Tendre

Mourre du Tendre CDP Tres VV 2017

750 ml
  • Organic

A Châteauneuf du Pape with finesse, good balance and aromatic structure, this sustainably farmed wine is made from organic Grenache and Mourvedre grapes. Pulled from 100 year old vines, the grapes are hand-harvested without de-stemming, and spend 30 months aging in stainless steel vats, and an additional 6 months in bottle. This results in an intense red colored wine, with balanced notes of liquorice, red fruits, and a slight peppery finish. Enjoy now alongside red meat and chocolate, or save for another 20 years. 

Mourre du Tendre

For several generations the Paumel family has farmed vineyards in the Rhône Valley. The current patriarch, Jacques Paumel took control of the estate in 1962 from his father, and in 1988 he and his wife Josephine decided to start estate bottling their own wines using the name of the hill on which their ancient Provençale farmhouse and many of their vines are situated. The estate is now run by the youthful and energetic Paul Vérite, grandson of Jacques and Josephine but he intends to keep things just as they are – which is good news for those who appreciate traditionally made wines in a region that makes flashy cuvées so easy.
