Rhône Valley wines - Domaine Brunely
Domaine Brunely is the latest addition to our Rhône Valley partners. We really enjoyed tasting the wines from this Domaine, which has been in the same family for over 200 years now and owns vineyards on all the main appellations of the Southern Rhône: Vacqueyras, Gigondas, Ventoux, Cairanne and of course Châteauneuf-du-Pape. All the ingredients of a well-managed estate are here: sustainable farming practice, modern equipment but traditional winemaking techniques and a deep respect for the terroir and the grapes. Great wines, reasonable prices and the personal touch of the winemaker, nothing more!
Our selection from the estate includes their entry-level Ventoux cuvées in red and rosé, both very easy-drinking but extremely well-made. Then the Côtes du Rhône Villages Massif d’Uchaux, which was our "Coup de Coeur" during the tasting and offers a excellent quality for this price range. We've also decided to go for the Vacqueyras Blanc, a rather unusual but exciting white wine that would delight any Rhône white amateurs. Finally the Gigondas and Châteauneuf-du-Pape, that should be great addition to anyone's cellar.
