Côtes du Rhône Villages ‘Domaine Grosset’ (France)

Cotes-du-Rhone-Villages-Maison-Brotte

 12,00

The word ‘Villages’ on a Côtes du Rhône label indicates a step up in quality. Cairanne used to be one of the best villages in the Southern Rhône (enjoying a similar soil and climate to Châteauneuf-du-Pape), so early 2016 it is promoted  to an individual appellation: AOP Cairanne. ‘Domaine Grosset’ shows its potential so well. Ripe, rich and fleshy juice with a spicy touch. Oh, and it screams for meat!

Aroma:
Lush velvety fruits as plum and berries, with spice and herb notes.

Taste:
Unctuous with warm spices, hints of coffee, leather and a chocolately long finish.

Maison Brotte
Maison Brotte, an independent family business, -now in its third generation- has always been at the forefront of innovation. The founder, Charles Brotte, was one of the first to begin estate bottling in Châteauneuf du Pape in 1931. In 1954 he released his famous non-vintage (and weird bottle-shaped) cuvée ‘La Fiole du Pape’. The estate has always enjoyed a reputation for great quality and, under the guidance of Charles’ grandson Laurent, the Maison “has improved dramatically” (said by Robert Parker).

Sustainability
Today Brotte owns four estates throughout the Rhone Valley: Domaine Barville in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Chateau de Bord, Domaine Grosset in Côtes du Rhône Villages Cairanne and Domaine de l’Aube. All of these are sustainably farmed.

Laurent Brotte has run the company since 1998. Its historic base is in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. His wife, Christine, manages the estates. Their two sons, Thibault and Benoît, aged 23 and 21, recently joined them in order to support sales development and advances in quality within the company.
