André Brunel Côtes du Rhône Rouge

AOC Côtes du Rhône, Rhône

The vines, grouped in 2 plots and situated east to west of the Rhône, gather all the complexity of the Rhône terroirs.

Tasting Notes

The Grenache expresses exuberance of red fruit roundness and of tannins. The Syrah and the Cinsault bring structure and elegance.

Maceration takes place over 20 to 30 days. With rack-and-return and punching-down of the cap daily during the alcohol and fermentation temperatures are controlled at around 28°C.

70% Grenache, 20% Cinsault, 10% Syrah

This wine comes from two terroirs with complementary qualities allowing the Grenache to reveal all of its potential: elegance and finesse thanks to the small yields and clay-limestone subsoil of the Saint Geniès de Comolas terroir in the Gard and power and hardiness thanks to the round pebbles and clay subsoil of the Travaillan in the Vaucluse.

The vines, regrouped in 2 plots located to the east and west of the Rhône, gather all the complexity of the Rhône terroirs.
