RHONE VALLEY, FRANCE 2019
It’s no secret that the Rhône’s Domaine Brusset has become one of our perennial favorite producers for their ability to deliver captivating wines at modest price-points—a distinction that has sky-rocketed them into "cult status." As noted by James Molesworth of Wine Spectator, wineries of the southern Rhône Valley produce "something for every wine lover...from big, muscular wines to more stylish" and the wines of Laurent Brusset, taking over for his father Daniel, "lead this group." Simply put, we cannot get enough. Given that our previous Brusset offers have sold out in a matter of days, we're thrilled to have an allocation of four wines from the estate’s 2019 vintage to feature today. Garnering up to 93 points with discounted Concierge prices at sub-$20 per bottle, these wines are the best bang-for-your-buck you can find in the Rhône.
Domaine Brusset, located in the heart of the southern Côtes du Rhône valley, was founded by Laurent Brusset's grandfather in 1947. The Domaine has since expanded from 13 to 70 hectares, with vineyards spread across five of the Southern Rhône's most prestigious appellations, including Gigondas and Rasteau. As one of the first estates in the region to introduce small barrels for aging their top wines, they have honed the marriage between fruit and wood to perfection. Producing compelling wines from some of the most sought out land in the region, Brusset produces wines that stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the region’s best—often at a third or quarter of the price.
The Rasteau ‘La Bastide’ is a blend of Grenache and Mourvèdre, all hand picked, that boasts tremendous dark fruit character interwoven with layers of herbs and sweet spice. 'Laurent B.' is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, and Mourvèdre from vines planted in Cairanne and the Plan de Dieu. Fresh and juicy with blueberry and cherry fruit, the wine is exuberant and extremely drinkable. The Cairanne Vieilles Vignes is a richer expression, produced from grapes grown in the heart of the estate. With old-vine Grenache and Syrah, this full-bodied wine has loads of fresh raspberry and cassis fruit. And finally, the Cairanne ‘Les Travers Blanc’ is composed of Clairette, Grenache Blanc, Viognier, and Roussanne. The white is shimmering in the glass and richly textured on the palate, offering up notes of white flowers, exotic fruits, and vanilla. Each of today’s wines are unbeatable in terms of price and quality. Don't miss this opportunity to secure your order with Mix & Match pricing!
