Lucia discovered Domaine de Brunet while she was on holiday in the Languedoc back in 2009 and was bowled over by the value of this, their entry level wine. It’s made in a lighter style than one might expect for a southern French red, with wonderful garrigue flavours of hillside herbs, olives, fennel and warm figs, but held in a lighter, daintier frame than its peers, who often hold their flavours in too tight a fist. This is wonderfully expressive and the fruit notes lean more towards cherry and strawberry and orange and less towards the typically dark and brooding fruits of the region, finishing with Brunet’s telltale hint of smoky tea. In fact, it has more of the flighty elegance of a Pinot Noir, even though it is a classic Languedoc blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Carignan. Great with simple grilled chicken or a lamb tagine. 13.5% alc. Drink now-2020.
