Wine André Brunel, Cuvée Sabrine Côtes du Rhône Villages, 2017
Red - As a complex and layered GSM blend, this wine has received significant recognition for its harmony between vineyard and cellar.
The wine is layered with notes of cherry, prunes, currant, blueberry, and raspberry. This is followed by notes of leather, dark chocolate, and spices, which accompanies its weight and complexity.
The wine is incredibly food-friendly and is considered excellent with comfort food, including roast chicken and grilled meat. Filet Mignon or duck are the ideal choices.
The vines are more than 50-year-old vines that produce low yields but high-quality grapes. The vineyards' soils are rich with fine gravel that creates well-drained conditions.
The wines are produced in a vegan-friendly manner and are a typical GSM blend. The Grenache and Mourvedre are co-fermented and aged in concrete, while the Syrah is made separately and often aged in oak. These wines are aged separately for one year before being blended together 12 months before being released.
Andre Brunel is one of the top names in the region and has received a perfect 100-point score with Robert Parker.
