A truly exceptional rosé by the singular Brunhilde Claux! How she makes such elegant and fun-to-drink wines in the heat of Minervois - we'll never know... but we do know we love them. Stones and fresh crunchy coastal fruit!
Brunnhilde Claux was chosen by Rheinhard Brundig of Ch. Courbissac (her main gig)due to her excellent record working for Gérard Gauby, where she learnt the skills needed for growing vines naturally in a Mediterranean climate, and then with Dominik Huber for three vintages.
Yet Claux’s main drive has been to work the vineyards in order to achieve ripeness at the lowest possible Baume – her aim being to capture as much freshness as possible. This work, combined with Claux’s gentle winemaking–infusion rather than extraction–and the complete absence of new oak, has already produced a range of wine that are appreciably livelier, more seductive and fragrant than what we had come to expect of this excellent producer and the Minervois appellation in general.
