Mégaphone des Brunier 2020 12 x 75cl

MEGA035
Produced from a single plot in the area of Caromb, nestling on the southern slopes of the Dentelles de Montmirail. It is a little paradise. Just three hectares of vines, but their situation and aspect prompted the Bruniers not to include these grapes in the classic Pigeoulet blend and instead to make a wine in its own right.
This is an En Primeur wine and special conditions apply.

Domaines Brunier

This classic Châteauneuf estate was bought by the Brunier family of Vieux Télégraphe in 1986 and investments in the winery and vineyard soon followed. The result is over 30 hectares of top Châteauneuf terroir with vines approaching full maturity, vinified in a modern winery.

Tasting Notes

A blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah, Rhone Valley enthusiasts will be delighted with this rich, earthy wine. Filled with black cherry fruits, it is beautifully balanced by a fresh spiciness on the finish.

Vinification

The vines are 25 years old on average, harvesting is by hand and the grapes are de-stemmed before being gently pressed. Vinification in temperature controlled cement cuves for 15 to 20 days. The wine goes through a full malolactic fermentation and is then aged in huge (50 hectolitre) oak vats for 10 months.
