Wine André Brunel, Vaucluse, 2018
Red - Using merely Grenache in this wine, the richness and intensity of single-variety wines from Southern Rhone have been captured.
The nose offers intense blueberry and blackberry aromas with a hint of vanilla and pepper. The palate shows intense fruits and creates a pleasant, easy-drinking feel.
Lamb is a perfect partner for this wine since it isn't too heavy and overwhelming for this easy red. Game birds, like duck or goose, would be an excellent second choice.
No pesticides or herbicides are used in the vineyard, and ground-covering is used to stimulate ground-life. Manual harvesting is done at optimal ripeness.
All the wines are vegan-friendly, and the grapes are macerated for extended periods. They are produced in a style best to be enjoyed immediately.
Andre Brunel was the first in Chateauneuf du Pape to introduce a non-chemical way to grape-growing.
