Grenache & Grenache Blends
Red Table Wine
A blend from low-yielding hand-picked vines comprising 70% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, and 10% Cinsault. Two thirds is fermented in vats, the balance in two-to four-year-old demi-muids (600 litre oak barrels native to the region).
The wine boasts a deep carmine colour and ripe red fruit aromas with a touch of mineral and vanilla. The palate is generous and full-bodied with silky tannins and an exceptionally well-integrated finish.
“I continue to absolutely love the wines from Brusset, and both 2020 and 2021 are strong vintages here. Starting with the 2021 Gigondas Tradition Le Grand Montmirail, it has bright cherry and darker berry fruit, medium body, an elegant, balanced mouthfeel, and lots of Provençal garrigue and peppery nuances. It lacks the concentration of the special cuvées but will drink nicely right out of the gate. This is 70% Grenache and 10% each of Cinsault, Mourvèdre, and Syrah, aged 60% in vats and 40% in 2- to 4-year-old demi-muids.”
