Brotte Bouvencourt Vacqueyras 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.
“Bouvencourt” : a tribute to the name and character of the historic Brotte Vacqueyras “cuvée” coming from Vacqueyras, a small village of southern Rhône situated between the famous crus of Gigondas and Beaumes de Venise. It was honoured with its own ‘cru’ status in 1990, hence joining the nine crus of the South Rhône Valley. The Vacqueyras appellation spreads over red clay and sandy soils covered with small pebbles allowing for a low yield and high concentration of colours and aromas. The climate is dry and warm and sees its effects amplified by the powerful Mistral wind.
Generous and Warming.

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.

Château Grand-Puy Ducasse Pauillac Grand Cru Classé AOC

Three large plots in the best parts of Pauillac form the vineyard of this classified growth, an unusual configuration and a direct inheritance from the estate’s founder, Pierre Ducasse, an eminent lawyer. In the 18th century he gave a single name to a fine vineyard holding, which was put together through inheritance and purchases. When he died in 1797, his son, Pierre, inherited a 60-hectare exploitation, named Ducasse-Grand-Puy-Artigues-Arnaud, of which two third were planted with vines. The estate was classified in 1855, under the name of Artigues Arnaud.
Thanks to impeccable harvesting and tailor-made winemaking, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot produced a wine renowned for its aromatic complexity, glorious structure and ageing capacity, all true to the classic Pauillac style.
