WINE OF THE DAY 3/9/16 Brotte Laudun Cotes du Rhone Villages $19.99

March 9, 2016

VINEYARD: Built in Roman times, Château de Bord in the village of Laudun belonged to the Vicars of Uzes during the 11th century and later to the Count of Toulouse. It was abandoned after the French Revolution in 1789 and changed hands several times until it was purchased in 1991 by the Brotte family, who saw incredible potential in its surrounding vines. Situated on a south facing hillside, the vineyard is spread over 22ha of terraces. Its soil is a well drained mixture of clay and limestone and is rich in fossils of oysters and other shells left by the retreating sea in the Mesozoic era, some 250 to 65 million years ago.

VINIFICATION: The Syrah is harvested at perfect maturity and the Grenache at a stage of over-maturity. Entirely hand-picked into small cases with initial grape selection being carried out in the vineyard. The fruit is transported quickly to the winery to avoid damage. Gentle removal of the berries from the stalk and final selection by hand (on the sorting table) before the vinification of each varietal separately, using techniques of pump over and plunging of the cap. Finally, the single varietal wines are blended and transferred: 50% into French oak barrels and 50% in oak cask for 12 months. Bottled with light filtration.
