SARL VIGNOBLES ROGER - Château du Prieure des Mourgues, 34360 Pierrerue
We met this producer the first time when we still were in the wine business. The son had just graduated as oenologue (wine maker) and had made his first wine – a Merlot - that impressed a lot on us. It became later a favorite in selected Swedish restaurants.
Today the son is in charge of the business and has developed a small but excellent portfolio of wine. They produce the most beautiful variety wines on Merlot, Viogner, Chardonnay and also one with a mixture of Chardonnay and Viogner, which is very pleasant. These wines are sold under the brand name of Domaine des Aspes and are Vdp d’Oc wines, while the traditional AOP Saint Chinian wine is sold under the label of Château du Prieure des Mourgues. The red prestige wine Grand Reserve is really something to pick up and put into your cellar to forget about for a few years.
