About

Product Description:

From 30 year old vines grown on clay/limestone soil. Three-quarters of the Brousse vineyard (the property is about 30 ha) is on the south-facing Castillon slope, and the rest are on the plateau. The yields are kept to a low 35 hectolitres per hectare through careful pruning and the removal of excess buds in the Spring. Fermentation and maceration take place over a period of three weeks in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature. The wine is aged mostly in stainless steel tanks (90%) with the balance in new oak casks. Ch. De Brousse is typically bottled in November of the year following harvest. Ch. De Brousse is an exceptionally rich, deeply colored and mouth-filling wine, with flavors of plush, ripe, spicy black cherries and currants with notes of dark chocolate. The wine is ready for current enjoyment and represents an amazing value.
