Andre Brunel Becassonne Cotes du Rhone Blanc 2020

Floral and nicely textured, this Southern Rhone blend has
refreshing peach and pear tones through to a zesty,
citrussy finish.
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 Bécassonne cuvée comes from a unique plot, particularly suited to the production
of white wine. It is situated on a hill exposed to the gentle rising sun but protected from
the strong setting sun by a pine forest, which allows the grapes to ripen fully and
imparts a floral and exotic character to this wine, while preserving a real freshness. The
soil is a clay earth on calcareous subsoil. The vines have an average age of 40 years
and yield 40 hectolitres per hectare. The grapes are harvested manually, when they
have reached the optimum maturity for the variety.
Winemaking
Each grape variety was fermented separately in concrete vats at controlled
temperatures of 18°C and lasted between 15 to 20 days. The different cuvées were
blended together and the wine spent six months maturing in concrete vats.
