La Brulade 2019 du Domaine de La Bégude
Bandol red wine AOC
Bottle (75cl)


Born from an austere and prestigious terroir, this very confidential cuvée reveals the purest expression of the quintessence of Mourvèdre. La Brulade is one of the most beautiful references for the collectors of great Bandol wines!
La Brulade, the well-named, is the plot of all extremes: the most arid, the sunniest and the most exposed to the winds,
on a fiery terroir of ferruginous sandstone. Its 3 hectares divided into 11 terraces are distinguished by a very low yield and produce small, highly concentrated bunches of grapes, allowing the wine to deliver its ripest and most accomplished expression.

Tasting notes
A dense colour, sign of a strong concentration, a spicy nose with notes of garrigue and black pepper. As it ages, La Brulade develops very complex tertiary aromas of leather, menthol, blond tobacco and wild sloe. The mouth, very structured with a beautiful grain of tannins, ends beautifully with a remarkable length and minerality.
