A spicy, ripe and velvety Côtes du Rhone, traditional
with a modern twist.
André Brunel's family first settled in Châteauneuf du Pape in the 18th century and
began estate bottling their wines in the middle of the 20th century. They own 22
hectares in Châteauneuf du Pape and 40 hectares in the Côtes du Rhône. André
Brunel makes wines from his estate grown grapes as well as grapes from his
neighbouring growers where he tends the vineyards. His son Fabrice has now joined
the company to continue the family tradition.
A single plot located to the north of Orange which benefits from ideal sunshine,
promoting the ripening of the berries. The average age of the vines is 40 years and
they are planted in clay and calcareous surface soils over a granitic subsoil.
The grapes were crushed and 80% was destemmed followed by a cool maceration
for 24 hours. Fermentation commenced with the introduction of selected yeasts and
took place in temperature controlled vats at 28 to 32°C, lasting 10 to 12 days. After
running off the juice, the must was pressed and the free-run juice was blended with
the press juice.
An elegantly crafted Côtes du Rhône which punches above its weight. Spicy, ripe
and velvety with notes of coffee, this is traditionally styled, but with a modern twist.
A lovely match for grilled red meats and charcuterie.
