Philippe Lebrun

Philippe Lebrun is one of the Languedoc’s crop of dynamic, flexible and forward thinking winemakers, who have responded to the onslaught of wine from the New World with relish. Using the best parcels in the area, the quality of Philippe's wines are truly outstanding and demonstrate just how good wines from this area of France can be. Bringing his experience and know how, and through rigorous selection in the vineyards and perfect control of the winemaking process, Philippe strives for perfection to ensure he delivers the best product possible.

Deep purple with violet hints. Intense and powerful nose, characterised by hints of ripe blackberry and black cherry. A gentle vegetal note brings freshness.The palate is juicy, packed with fruit and a touch of spice and bay, with a fine texture and beautiful tannic structure. Long and powerful.
The grapes are mechanically harvested at night. They are de-stemmed and then undergo a traditional vinification: daily pumping over to extract the colour, tannins and aromas. Fermentation lasts around 2 weeks before running-off, racking and pressing. Maturation is carried out in concrete tanks.

Will Lyons, The Times, 'Six great picnic wines for summer': "This smooth, rich, succulent red has a soft texture and warming notes of blackcurrant and violet."
