Professional Wine Reviews for Brotte Gigondas La Marasque 2015

Rated 90 by Wine Advocate
Tasted as a barrel sample, the 2015 Gigondas la Marasque offers medium to full-bodied, fruit-forward notes of sweet blueberries, raspberries, flowers and spice. Made from 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah, aged all in foudre, it has outstanding potential.
Rated 90 by Vinous Media
Bright ruby. Ripe red berries, cherry and succulent herbs on the nose and palate. Smooth and open-knit, showing good depth and picking up a suggestion of candied licorice on the back half. A white pepper flourish adds finishing spiciness, and dusty tannins lend shape and grip.

Winery Brotte

Region: Rhone Valley

There are few wine regions in the world with a history as long and illustrious as that of the Rhone Valley in France. For over two thousand years, wines have been produced in this region, benefited by the excellent, mineral-rich soils of the region, and the varied climate which allows a wide range of grape varietals to grow. The Rhone Valley is now split into two quite separate regions, with the north part being characterized by its cooler, continental climate and the limited number of grape varietals grown, and the southern sub-region being perfect for growing a wide range of grapes, and producing an exciting number of different wine styles. The Rhone Valley is associated with elegant, flavorful wines, and certain grape varietals such as Viognier and Syrah, which are adept at expressing the finer features of their terroir.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
