    Cuvée presentation

    This cuvée originated in 1989 to celebrate the centenary of planting the finest plot of the domain. Its soils and sub-soils are rich in clay and the vines are blessed with optimal sunshine as well as a violent mistral wind which contributes to the concentration of the berries. The wine is only made in noteworthy vintages, for example 2017 or 2010 recently, and nowadays the vines are 125 years old. An explosive aromatic bouquet abounds, from blackcurrant to blackberry. On the palate it has impressive roundness with melted tannins. Its length is testimony to its status as "one of the greats".

    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.
