A pure, savoury Chateauneuf with soul. 80% of the vines used for this blend are more than 100 years old, and you really taste the depth of fruit and rich complexity from these noble old vines. They keep the stems in for the fermentation, which adds a bit of freshness and fine tannin which can sometimes be lacking in wines from this sun-baked region. All you need is a large glass and a crackling log fire!

About Chateau du Mourre du Tendre

If you take the Route de la Plaine north from the medieval town of Courthézon in the Southern Rhone, by the time you reach the top of the hill you'll be surrounded by a sea of vines. Known locally as Mourre du Tendre, or ‘the hill of love’. It’s been home to the Paumel family for seven generations.

Today the estate is run by Florence and her son Paul Verité, who farm traditionally, seeking balance and elegance through respect for the natural cycles of the land. In the cellar they use whole-bunch to give structure, and age in both concrete tanks and foudre. The resulting wines are graceful, age-worthy with a freshness that you don't always find in this region.
