A mix of the regions 5 permitted grape varities, this is a slightly more fruit forward take on the style with soft brambly fruit dancing with some lighter strawberries and undercurrents of liquorice and cola cubes. Some tannin but overall soft, light, with an autumn leaf detail which, combined with the cola cube, is suggestive of new world pinot.


Tasting Notes

I love this. It's my favourite 'house' wine, although I'm fond of a few, but this has an ethereal aroma that reaches to sky, like you might get in a fine wine. It makes me think about it and dream each time I lift it to my nose, which most wines at this price don't manage. It's a Southern Rhone/ Languedoc blend of Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault and Mourvedre, coming from cool altidude and poor soil of the Causse de la Selle in Terrasses du Larzac, a few Km north of Montpellier, lending the wine a freshness that I love, wiht hints of garrigue.


Press Note:

"On the edge of the Massif Central in the Languedoc, Domaine de Brunet is a small estate of 60 acres owned by the Coulet family since the French Revolution. A mixture of Grenache, Syrah and other Rhone grape varieties, it is best thought of as a bargain version of a Chateauneuf du Pape. Located quite close to Mas de Daumas Gassac, the most famous wine of the Languedoc, Mas Brunet is quite forward with excellent fruit and is so reliable that Robin Davis considersit to be his de facto house wine."
