Description

From 40 to 60-year-old vines famously grown on “galets roulés”, the Gardine Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2020 is aged for up to 14 months in oak before bottling. Deep purple in colour, the nose is full of black fruit, spice, coffee and liquorice, with a lift of violet at the end. The palate has distinctive notes of tobacco and leather with velvety tannins.

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. Today around 70% of the production is exported to about 30 countries.

Food Pairing: Pair this wine with roasted quail and balsamic reduction, or with a Provencal stew.
