In contrast to many of the big names of Bandol, the wines of Terrebrune are defined by their elegance, and this is what I love about them.
“There is a more ethereal quality to them, a real freshness.” US wine guru Kermit Lynch.
“Terrebrune makes some seriously great wines, and without a fancier French wine region price tag.” Mike Bennie, The Wine Front.
The 30ha estate is certified organic. In the vineyards manual labour is preferred to machine, and gravity rather than pumps are used in the winery. Wines are bottled unfiltered and unfined.
This wine is made from 50% mourvedre, 25% grenache and 25% cinsault. The grape are handpicked, destemmed and gently pressed in a pneumatic press. Natural yeasts are used in fermentation. Incredibly this wine can age for 20 years - if stored correctly of course.
Incredibly aromatic and intense - this is serious rosé. Red berry and strawberry meld with savoury and mineral notes. Beautifully structured and incredibly long on the finish. This is all about intensity.
