André Brunel Est-Ouest Côtes du Rhône 2018

Delicious and inviting Rhône style showing warm, juicy
and spicy black plum flavours with herbal echoes of the
South of France garrigue.
Producer Note
André Brunel's family first settled in Châteauneuf du Pape in the 18th century. They own
22 hectares in Châteauneuf du Pape and 40 hectares in the Côtes du Rhône. André
Brunel’s skills have earned him worldwide recognition for the intensity and
concentration of his wines, combining modern technical expertise with the traditional
power of the region. His son Fabrice has now joined the company to continue the
family tradition.
Vineyard
The vines are grown in two plots located to the east and west of the Rhône (hence the
name) and impart the complexity of the different Rhône terroirs. The complementary
qualities from these two terroirs allow the 35 year old Grenache vines to reveal all their
potential: elegance and finesse come from the small yields of 35 hectolitres per hectare
and clay-limestone subsoil of the Saint Geniès de Comolas terroir in the Gard, while the
round pebbles and clay subsoil of the Travaillan in the Vaucluse impart structure and
power to the blend.
Winemaking
The grapes were 100% destemmed and crushed prior to being pressed. Maceration
and fermentation took place in temperature controlled tanks. Vinification lasted
between 20 and 30 days, with rack and returns and punching down of the cap,
extracting phenolic compounds and resulting in more fruit-forward characteristics. The
cuvées were aged in vats to preserve the freshness and purity of fruit.
Tasting Note
Spicy with exuberant ripe red fruit framed by a good structure, rounded tannins and a
lovely balance. A delicious and approachable Rhône blend with an elegant finish.
