"I've always loved the wines of this incredibly old-school domaine, and their 2018 Chteauneuf Du Pape looks to be another solid effort. Loads of garrigue, pepper, incense, saddle leather, and sweet red and black fruits all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, supple, seamless red that has ripe tannins, good mid-palate depth, and just loads of upfront charm.

"I've always loved the wines of this incredibly old-school domaine, and their 2018 Chteauneuf Du Pape looks to be another solid effort. Loads of garrigue, pepper, incense, saddle leather, and sweet red and black fruits all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, supple, seamless red that has ripe tannins, good mid-palate depth, and just loads of upfront charm. It's not going to be the longest-lived, but it's beautifully done and is going to offers tons of pleasure over the coming 10-12 years."

The Wine
80 Grenache, 10 Syrah 5 Mourvdre, 5 Cinsault
Owner and winemaker Claude Courtil is the godson of Henri Bonneau
He was an apprentice to Bonneau before taking over Brusquieres
70+ year old vines, indigenous yeasts, unfined and unfiltered
Aged in a combination of cement and demi-muids

The Estate
At only eight hectares in size, this miniscule, ultra-traditional estate produces tiny quantities of just one wine: no luxury cuve, no specialty blend, just a stunningly pure and complex Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Owner Claude Courtil is the godson of none other than Henri Bonneau, one of the most legendary and revered producers in the region, and he learned everything he knows about winemaking from his godfather. Henri and Claude share a deeply held commitment to natural winemaking: manual vineyard work, traditional aging in large foudres, and bottling without intrusive fining and filtration. With incredibly old vines that average 60 years old, this is truly a special domaine, and one that is extremely deserving of your attention.

About Clos des Brusquieres
At only eight hectares in size, this miniscule, ultra-traditional estate produces tiny quantities of just one wine: no luxury cuvee, no specialty blend, just a stunningly pure and complex Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Owner Claude Courtil is the godson of none other than Henri Bonneau, one of the most legendary and revered producers in the region, and he learned everything he knows about winemaking from his godfather. Henri and Claude share a deeply held commitment to natural winemaking: manual vineyard work, traditional aging in large foudres, and bottling without intrusive fining and filtration. A reserved, introspective man, Courtil sold his entire production to negociants until the 1996 vintage, and he has been producing steadily more impressive and complete wine ever since -- though the '96 is an extremely gorgeous Chateauneuf in its own right! This is truly a special domaine, and one that is extremely deserving of your attention.

The blend consists of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre.
