75cl bottle.

Laudun is currently moving from one of the Côtes du Rhône Villages to become a Cru in its own right.

Complex nose, with a viognier signature. Apricot first dominates and evolves towards green apple and sweet almond. Initial freshness is followed by harmonious smoothness and elegance. Very long, the wine has full body and aromatic complexity, with long lasting citrus and white peach aromas.

Located in Châteauneuf-du-Pape since 1931, Brotte Family Vineyards is owner/vintner of three distinct terroirs and family domains
in the southern Rhone Valley. Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Cairanne and Côtes du Rhône Village Laudun where these wines originate. Since 2014, Brotte wine has carried the TERRA VITIS French environmental label. This reference imposes sustainable agriculture principles, respecting nature from the vine to the glass, as well as within the company. Hand harvested 30 year old vines grown on the right bank of Rhone on exposed slopes – ensures freshness for whites. 5-6 months lees ageing contributes to a richer texture.
