Tasting Notes

This bright and fresh red is joyful and complex. Medium weight with fruit of red and black cherry, plum, blackberry, minerality and garrigue. It is just over medium weight with silky tannins, juicy acidity and a polished texture. This shows both depth and elegance.

 

Xavier Peyraud, grandson of Lulu and Lucien Peyraud of the famed Domaine Tempier in Bandol (Provence, France) together with his wife Géraldine Combes, took over her family vineyards, where they farm nearly 20 acres of vines planted to Grenache, Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and assorted white varieties. While Géraldine's family had originally intended to sell grapes to the local co-op, Xavier and Géraldine saw the beginnings of their shared dream to establish a domaine of their own, and thus was born Mas des Brousses. Since 1997, the couple have handled every aspect of viticulture and winemaking from vine to bottle. They augmented the property size by planting Mourvèdre from Tempier cuttings.


The couple work organically in the vineyards and have never used pesticides or herbicides. Grapes are hand-harvested, wines are fermented with native yeasts and minimal or no sulfur and are bottled unfiltered to capture the intense fruit and garrigue aromas that the terroir has to offer. This cuvée takes its name from the hunters (les chasseurs) who surveille the vineyards in the summer while hunting for wild game.
