Mourgues was originally a Proven�al name for Ursuline nuns, the farm originally having belonged to a convent near the village of Beaucaire. With Mont Ventoux visible from the top of the vineyard slopes this is a region that feels closer to Provence or the Rh�ne than the Languedoc. The vineyard site is made up of flat pebbles called Gr�s and is planted with a mixture of Syrah, Grenache, Mourv�dre, Roussanne, Viognier and Grenache Blanc. Les Galets refer to the large stones (also found in Ch�teauneuf) which heat up during the day and release their warmth at night, perfect for ripening those reds (and whites).
