French Mourvèdre is a red wine grape variety that’s grown in many regions around the world, but it’s most famous in the Rhône Valley and Provence regions of Southern France. In these regions, it’s often used in blends like those of Bandol and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Mourvèdre wines are typically full-bodied, high in tannins, and have moderate acidity. These wines often showcase flavours of dark fruit like plum and blackberry, sometimes with notes of black pepper, meat, or earth. They are known for their potential to age and develop complex, savoury flavours over time. If you enjoy red wines that are bold, structured, and complex, wines made from or featuring French Mourvèdre could be a great choice for you.
