André Brunel Côtes du Rhône La Bécassonne Blanc

AOC Côtes du Rhône, Rhône

The Bécassonne cuvée comes from a unique plot, particularly suited for this production of white wine. Clay earth on a calcareous subsoil which all lies on a hill exposed to the rising sun but protected from the burning setting sun by a pine forest, allowing the grapes to fully ripen and to give a floral and exotic character to this wine while preserving a real freshness which is fairly rare for the white Côtes du Rhône Blanc.

Tasting Notes

The cuvée is characterized by hints of floral and exotic fruits. The 2016 vintage, with exceptional climatic conditions, allowed the Roussanne to fully express itself. This blend has kept its acidity, freshness, and balance of aromatics and flavor that will deliver with every taste.

    "Very fresh, with star fruit, green almond and verbena notes streaking through. Offers a flash of lemon peel on the slightly brisk finish. Drink now through 2019. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 1,250 cases imported."
