Brotte, Esprit Cotes du Rhone Blanc 2023

Get to know: Brotte, Esprit Cotes du Rhone Blanc

Tasting Note

This is a fabulous introduction to the white wine of the Rhone Valley. Made up predominantly of Grenache Blanc, picked early to capture aromas such as citrus fruits and exotic fruits. Viognier and Clairette bring their complexity with touches of peaches and white flowers. The wine has wonderful complexity with excellent freshness and length.

Serve as an aperitif or enjoy with barbecued shellfish, seafood and citrus fruits salad, chicken dishes, sweetbreads with morilles or alongside desserts of candied fruits, vanilla millefeuille or apricot pie

Kate Says

"The Rhone Valley may be more famous for its red wines but don't miss out on the white wines. They offer fabulous aromatic, refreshing wines with little more weight and texture. This from the Brotte family is a great example. I'd enjoy it with a crayfish salad."

Producer Info

Since 1880, five generations of the Brotte family have been making wines with passion and authenticity. The fruit for this wine comes from selected small wine producers in the Rhône Valley, all of whom have been partners of Maison Brotte for several decades. The vines are planted on a very beautiful clay-silt terroir and which benefit from a lot of sunshine. The hot and dry climate therefore favours the ripening of the grapes and the good health of the vineyard. The grapes are lightly crushed by a pneumatic press before cold settling overnight at 10°C. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks at a low temperature between 16 – 18°C to preserve the freshness. Maturation on fine lees with regular stirring in stainless steel vats for 6 months adds body and texture.
