This wine, courtesy of the new Brotte generation, has been created to meet new drinking expectations. The white grape varieties in this red wine refine the tannins, bringing a touch of modernity. Designed to be served chilled, the SIGNATURE cuvée has taken an eco-friendly approach with a lightweight glass bottle and recycled shipping outers.
Appearance – Ruby hue with purplish tints.
Nose – Very fruity and pleasant. The nose is fresh and luscious with aromas of fresh red fruit, yellow fruit and roses. Very rosé wine-like aromas.
Palate – Surprisingly round and without any trace of dryness. It shows a great deal of softness and subtlety and is best served chilled as you would a rosé. This wine’s light, fragrant style is best appreciated when the wine is still young and fruity.
LOCATION, TERROIR & VINIFICATION
The grapes are sourced from small Rhône Valley wine producers, all of whom have been working in partnership with Brotte for several decades. The winemaking process is where Brotte shows all its savoir-faire and expertise when it comes to the regional grape varieties.
The vines find themselves very much at home in the clay-limestone soils. The viticulture is sustainable and certified High Environmental Value 3. The latter certification is based on strict specifications with four main performance indicators which are water management, fertilisation management, a phytosanitary strategy with quantified environmental measures and respect for communities, with the primary objective of generating biodiversity.
The wine should be opened after at least one hour in the refrigerator and served at 10°C, a temperature that will reveal the exceptional quality and finesse of its tannins.
Enjoy as an aperitif, with a salad of blue cheese and walnuts, grilled poultry or pork chops, pizzas or Asian delicacies (samosas, egg rolls, etc.)
