A progressive and forward thinking estate
The winery's unassuming façade in the town of Le Luc gives little away to this high achieving, third generation family estate, run today by the four brothers Brun: Olivier, Jean-Michel, Christian and Frédéric. Specialising in rosé, using only fruit from the family's 120 hectares of estate vineyards across a variety of Côtes de Provence terroirs, and with state of the art equipment, the philosophy here is progressive and confident, the wines contemporary and delicious.
CHÂTEAU DE BRIGUE PROVENCE ROSÉ 2016
40% Grenache, 40% Cinsault, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Screwcap.
Modern in packaging and clean in style, this is the estate's excellent entry wine. A juicy and fruit forward release, it's crisp with red currant and strawberry fruit, a gentle saline tang, easy to drink as ever, and builds complexity once in the mouth. Certainly refreshing, though fans out on the palate with a surprisingly detailed finish of mineral salts. Limited number also available of Magnums (1.5L) and Jeroboams (3L).
"Delicate rose of good, fresh fruit, berry-led aromas and flavours. Has a lift of green herbs, flint-like mineral charm and pretty spice. Washy and lightly crunchy in texture, good length, nice mouthwatering finish. Pristine and clean. It’s delightful." 91 points, Mike Bennie, Winefront
