Description

The Brunel Côtes du Rhône 2021 is made from the classic southern Rhône blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks followed by a few months ageing in concrete. Ruby red in colour, the nose is full of red fruits, herbs and sweet spice. The palate is fruity, soft and supple with gentle tannins – a real crowd pleaser.

The winemaking tradition of the Brunel family goes back to the 17th century. Gaston Brunel, a famous négociant, acquired the Château de la Gardine in Châteauneuf du Pape in 1945. The estate is now run by his two sons, Maxime and Patrick with the help of their wives Maryse and Eve and some of their children and grandchildren, Marie-Odile, Philippe, Guillaume and Thibaut. The estate spreads over 52-hectares of vineyards (48 red and 4 white) and 20-hectares of forest, all gathered around the property. La Gardine is famous for its quality wine production and the uniquely shaped ‘Gardine’ bottles which are based on one Gaston found in his vineyard from the centuries before. Around 10 years ago the Brunel family of Château de la Gardine went back to their wine merchant roots to produce the ‘Brunel de le Gardine’ range, allowing them to offer a wide range of both Southern and Northern Rhône appellations. Today around 70% of the total production is exported to about 30 countries.

Food matches: Pairs brilliantly with grilled meats, vegetables and cheese – especially brie or a strong cheddar.
