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

Presentation

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
Fermentations in vats and aging for 12 months partly in barrels (50%), the rest in stainless steel tanks.
Varietals
Grenache blanc : 60%
Viognier : 60%
Marsanne : 20%
Roussanne : 20%

Tasting advices

Tasting notes
Pretty color with shiny reflections. The very expressive nose develops exotic aromas typical of viognier and an elegant, lightly-toasted touch thanks to the ageing. The palate is full and rich on the mouth with a dominant Viognier, before unveiling the roundness of Marsanne and the beautiful freshness of Roussanne on the finish. A balanced wine.
