Domaine Clos des Mourres
Vaucluse, Rhône Valley, France
Growing up, winemaker Jean-Philippe Bouchet would gather the wild greens, the mourres, with his grandfather to make humble meals with other treats from the family farm. That spirit guides his current tie to the land, the 15 hectares he farms with his wife Ingrid in the Côtes du Rhone and Vaucluse. The grapes are biodynamic and the wines are faithful and sulfite free.

Ask us about:
2016 Pompette Blanc
Translating roughly to “tipsy,” Pompette is made for the crowd, when it’s time to settle into that feeling of lightness and ease. Made with equal parts Grenache Blanc, Clairette and Bourboulenc, the wine is juicy with green apple and pear fruit, alive with its floral and mineral notes. The supple palate has a touch of weight and a flash of acidity in perfect balance.
2015 Pompette Rouge
Perhaps the strange mix of grapes in the Pompette rouge is the perfect metaphor for the wine’s party-like nature: a mingling of Tempranillo and Aubin, an antique Vaucluse varietal, with a touch of Grenache. Similar yet clearly different from anything else in this area, it’s tangy with bright red fruit, cassis and floral notes, medium bodied and gluggable.
