The right blend of grape varieties produces a wine well-balanced in the nose and mouth, heading towards juicy forest fruits, roasted peppers and spices.
A good companion for meat starters, stewed meats, wild birds and ripening cheeses.
Some of the oldest produced wines in the world come from the Rhone Valley. The Greeks grew grapes near Marseille in the 4th century BC. These vineyards were then taken over by the Romans in the first century B.C.E. In the Middle Ages, the Church had a huge influence on the wine industry in this region. In the fourteenth century, after the papacy moved from Rome to Avignon, French popes intensively planted vines around the vast area of the city. The most characteristic red grape varieties grown in the Rhone Valley are: Syrah (northern areas), Grenache (southern parts) and Mourvedre.
The wine is produced by the family company Brotte, founded in 1931 in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The confirmation of Laurent Brotte's aspirations in pursuit of further development of the company in harmony with nature are the "Terra Vitis" certificates obtained in 2014 for family properties located in various parts of the Rhone Valley.
