Brotte Domaine Barville Châteauneuf-du-Pape AOC

Since 1931, five generations of the Brotte family of Maison BROTTE at Châteauneuf-du-Pape have crafted with passion refined wines, distinctively smooth, elegantly fruity and spicy. The Grenache identity, the perfect knowledge of “terroirs” and the arts of vinification and maturation – mainly in 100 year old oak barrels, give such a unique style to Brotte wines.

The 15ha vineyard is situated on the west side of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and is composed of 7 parcels spread over two of the best areas of the appellation: clay and pebbles at ‘Pradel’ and shattered limestone at ‘Beaurenard’. The vines have an average age of 35 years and, at an elevation of 100m, dominate the Rhône River which, with the local wind ‘The Mistral’, brings an exceptional healthy micro-climate. A very warm climate and south facing position are ideal for perfect maturation and concentration of the berries.

Brotte La Marasque Gigondas AOC

Since 1931, five generations of the Brotte family of Maison BROTTE at Châteauneuf-du-Pape have crafted with passion refined wines, distinctively smooth, elegantly fruity and spicy. The Grenache identity, the perfect knowledge of “terroirs” and the arts of vinification and maturation – mainly in 100 year old oak barrels, give such a unique style to Brotte wines.
“La Marasque” : the name of a quality cherry, with acidity, renown for the making of Marasquin liqueur. A tribute to the unique cherry liqueur flavour of the “cuvée”.
The village Gigondas received its ‘cru’ status in 1971, one of only nine villages in the Southern Rhône to do so. Located between Orange and the Mont Ventoux the appellation spreads over the south-west facing hillsides of the “Dentelles de Montmirail”, and its surrounding dales. Sand and blue marl are covered with white stones which increase sun exposure. The intensity of the latter develops the richness of tannins and polyphenols. This asset is crucial to the area as the vineyards can reach an altitude of 400m, which often means a late maturation of the berries.
Great Richness.

Brotte Marandy Saint-Joseph AOC

Since 1931, five generations of the Brotte family of Maison BROTTE at Châteauneuf-du-Pape have crafted with passion refined wines, distinctively smooth, elegantly fruity and spicy. The Grenache identity, the perfect knowledge of “terroirs” and the arts of vinification and maturation – mainly in 100 year old oak barrels, give such a unique style to Brotte wines.
“Marandy” : a tribute to the name and character of the historic Brotte Saint Joseph “cuvée” coming from a so called area.
This delicate and pleasing wine shows in historical records as early as the 16th century. Saint-Joseph (allegedly the protector of scorned husbands) was once lauded by the kings of France as well as Victor Hugo, who mentioned it in ‘Les Misérables’. The majority of the vines are planted on steep slopes. The soil is composed of light schist and gneiss on a granite base. The climate is hot and dry in summer and mild during the other seasons. Syrah finds its perfect balance on this terroir as the poor soils limit yield, and therefore favour the complexity of this great variety.
Rustic character and Honest fruit.

Brotte Viridi Côtes du Rhône AOC

Since 1931, five generations of the Brotte family of Maison BROTTE at Châteauneuf-du-Pape have crafted with passion refined wines, distinctively smooth, elegantly fruity and spicy.

All of Brotte’s Chateneuf-du-Pape know-how has gone into this prestigious Côtes du Rhône organic cuvée.

In Latin, Viridi means green (reference to grass). This name honours the organic grapes and the “cuvee” that displays gourmet fruit and smoothness and the resulting grapes are intense and well structured.
