Andre Brunel is such a calm, urbane gent that it is of no surprise to taste that his wines have the same kind of careful consideration and reserve that he does. But he’s deceptively passionate too, and he pours as much of this passion into each of his wines, from his top Chateauneuf’s to this great little number.
The vines producing this cuvée are located north of Orange . The search for low yields as well as the clay-limestone subsoil of the terroir bring elegance and finesse to this wine, the Grenache bringing its fruit and roundness.
Complex and intense with peppery spice, dense berry fruits and hints of raspberry, cocoa and vanilla at the finish. Will cellar for up to 3-4 years with ease.
Try with a cold platter of meats and cheeses, chorizo with lentils, steak, Quorn gammon roast diced with puy lentils, and smoked paprika
