Estate

Located in Châteauneuf-du-Pape since 1931, the Brotte Family are the owner and vintner of three distinct terroirs and family domains in the southern Rhone Valley. Here, Grenache the king, flourishes and expresses all of it’s fruit. Their red wines are blended with the addition of Syrah and Mourvedre, adding freshness and structure. Since 2014, their wines carry the TERRA VITIS French environmental label. This is a sustainable agriculture practice certification which ensures respecting nature from the vine to the glass, as well as within the company.

Vineyard

The parcels of vines selected for this wine stretch across terraces around the town of Ampuis on astonishingly steep slopes facing south. The climate shows great contrast between cold winters and hot summers. The schistous soil is perfect for Syrah which develops great complexity. The wine displays distinctive elegance and great character, with a myriad of fruity, floral, spicy and vanilla aromas. A wine of great longevity.

Vinification

The harvest is carried out manually. Then, the grapes are de-stemmed before crushed and be put into stainless steel tanks to initiate the alcoholic fermentation and maceration, which lasts 20 days at temperatures of 28-30 °C. Aged for 12 months in at least two and three year old barrels wines.
