Red wine. Southern Rhône, France. 60% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre, 10% Carignan. Organic. "The Cairanne “la Brunote” bottling from the Alary family is made from a rather unique cépages of grenache, mourvèdre and carignan. The grenache is grown in stone terraces in the subsection of Cairanne known as “Terroir Garrigue”, while the mourvèdre and carignan hail from hillside vineyards planted on blue clay and limestone, with all three parcels of vines more than fifty-five years of age. The 2018 la Brunote delivers a fine bouquet of dark berries, spit-roasted game, pepper, woodsmoke, garrigue and a fine base of chalky minerality. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and complex, with an excellent core of fruit, plenty of pepperiness, ripe, buried tannins and fine focus and grip on the long, classic finish. This is first class Cairanne." — 91 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #89 (September/October 2020)
