Domaine de Bréseyme, Brezeme Côtes du Rhône, Rouge, 2018

Terroir

Ever since the Middle Ages vines have been planted on steep slopes facing south. The highest point is Mount Roti at 256m. The soil is composed of clay and limestone. Our vines are located on the localities known as BREZEME EST and BRESEME OUEST. The estate is currently planted with 3.5ha of red and 0.5ha of white.

The vintage

In 2018, we were lucky to have another very good vintage in the Northern Rhône Valley. A generous and qualitative crop despite major climatic hazards that required the greatest attention.

Process

Whole bunch vinification. 15 months of aging in 2-3 year barrels.

Tasting notes

Made from vines located on the steep slopes of the Brezème appellation, this Côtes-du-Rhône has it all! It starts with a beautiful nose with powerful and complex aromas of black fruit and spices. It continues smoothly on the palate with melted soft tannins and a beautiful aromatic persistence. It is advisable to drink this wine within six years
