Description

This Cotes du Rhone blend from Andre Brunel harvests grapes from two plots in the east and west of the Rhône (hence the name) imparting the complexity of the different terroirs. Old vine Grenache makes up the majority, with Cinsault and Syrah completing the profile. Maceration and fermentation in tanks, with vinification lasting between 20 and 30 days. Rack and returns and punching down of the cap extracts phenolic compounds for fruit-forward characters. The cuvées are then aged in vats. 

Est-Ouest is a delicious and inviting Rhône style. Spicy and juicy with exuberant ripe raspberry, red liquorice and black plum alongside herbal notes, leather and peppercorn. Framed by good palate structure, rounded tannins and elegant balance. Try with red meats, stews, shepherds pie, or hard mature cheeses. 

André Brunel's family first settled in Châteauneuf du Pape in the 18th century and own 22 hectares in Châteauneuf du Pape and 40 hectares in the Côtes du Rhône. André Brunel’s skills as a winemaker have earned him worldwide recognition for the intensity and concentration of his wines, combining modern technical expertise with the traditional power of the region.
