The vinification is classic Brunel with 80% of the grapes de-stemmed to ensure the purity and roundness of the Grenache fruit. This tiny cuvée is entirely made in stainless steel tank and fashioned in a supple, open style with a powerful core of fruit.
The Andre Brunel 2009 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Cuvee Sabrine, which comes from Brunel’s holdings in Tavaillan, is composed of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre. It possesses more structure as well as more black and blue fruit characteristics. Blackberry, blueberry, lavender, tobacco leaf and meaty notes are intermixed with the tell-tale kirsch component that comes from ripe Grenache. This offering displays slightly more tannin and definition than the Cuvee Sommelongue, and is a big, hefty Cotes du Rhone-Villages that should drink well for 7-8 years.
