André Brunel Côtes du Rhône Villages Cuvée Sabrine Rouge

AOC Côtes du Rhône, Rhône

Tasting Notes

.Full expression of red fruits with elegant and harmonious tannins with a balanced finish and a mouthfeel allowing for the resonant and complex aromas. Cuvée Sabrine combines strength and elegance yet is still easy to sip on its own or as a complement to a meal.

Fermentation takes place in concrete vat after destemming of about 70% for the Grenache and complete destemming for the Syrah and Mourvèdre. Racking and return or 5 weeks.

70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre

Sabrine is the name of the daughter of the previous owner of the land. We decided to keep it because it expresses what we want to achieve for this wine - complexity and power coming from the terroir but also freshness and elegance to make this wine a good transition between our Côtes du Rhône and our Châteauneuf du Pape Les Cailloux. The grapes come mainly from a single plot located north of Orange. The soil is rich and the fine gravel within the first meter of the soil is a perfect draining system keeping the vine in continuous search for water.

A Côtes du Rhône Villages allying the freshness of the Grenache to the complexity of the great terroirs of the Rhône valley.
