With this wine, Maison Brotte have put all their traditional savoir-faire into the crafting of a prestigious Côtes du Rhône. This is an elegant wine with a typically big character, which celebrates the traditional grape variety, the king of the Southern Rhône Valley: Grenache Noir. In order for this varietal to express its full potential, the soil is worked sustainably with a rigorous pruning of the vine in the winter and green harvesting and leaf thinning to reduce the yield. The grapes are harvested when they reach the right level of maturity.

Pair with a fresh mushroom omelette, a fillet of beef, a homemade burger, veal stew or couscous. Try it with a creamy cow’s cheese such as Romans d’Isère

About Bold Reds

Bold red wines typically have high tannins, opaque ruby colours from high anthocyanin content, and rich fruit flavours. Wines that are bold such as these can be enjoyed on their own or with equally bold-flavoured foods.
