    Cuvée presentation

    L'Immortelle comes from the vines planted on the rolled pebbles of Diluvium Alpin and the white-pebbled limestone of Urgonien. A full harvest is done (with no destemming) and it is vinified in troconic oak vats. There is minimal human intervention and the different grape varieties are blended as soon as fermentation begins following an ancestral method. L'Immortelle is a powerful and tannic wine. Its bouquet is very dense, bursting with red and black fruit (cherry, blackberry) and spices. On the palate it is also very aromatised, mixing fruity notes with vanilla and the finish is long and fresh.

    Information about domainChâteau de la Gardine

    The Brunel family have been in the viticultural business since the 17th century. In 1945, Gaston Brunel, a well-known negociant, bought Château de la Gardine. The origins of the name Gardine are disputed: some say the name refers to the position of the château as a “guard” looking out over the Rhone Valley while overs believe it comes from the Gardini, the name of a noble family, who possibly owned the estate at one point. Nowadays, the domain is run by Gaston Brunel’s two sons, Patrick and Maxime, and spreads over 52 hectares of vines in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation. 70% of production is exported to around 30 countries. In 1998, anticipating the success of the terroirs of Lirac, the family decided to buy Château Saint Roch, that is, 40 hectares of incredibly good value for money vines. They also run a successful merchant business, thanks to the confidence that Patrick Brunel inspires in the region’s other growers. In the past 20 years, the family has made great effort to respect the environment: they support biodiversity (with a 20 hectare forest surrounding the vines), grass growing between the vines, vinification with minimal use of sulphur and the use of indigenous yeasts.
