Languedoc-Roussillon

Secondly, there are wines for every budget; at every level we believe these wines continue to offer terrific...

Mas des Brousses

Brousses translates as bush, or brush; this is, literally, the farm in the brush.

Amidst the rolling scrub-covered hills around Puéchabon and the pebble-strewn terrasses near the Hérault river lie the domaine’s plots of vines.

Mas des Brousses, Chasseur des Brousses, IGP Saint-Guilhem-Le-Desert, 2020

The recipe for this successful marriage of Bordeaux and the south has changed over recent years; in this vintage it’s based on young vine Mourvèdre with old vine Merlot, plus a little Syrah and Grenache. Aromas of plum, blueberry and blackcurrant leaf. Juicy, sappy red cherry and strawberry flavours – spiced by a little of Mourvèdre’s savouriness. This feels crunchy and vital - very moreish and perfect for spring and summer drinking. The merest rasp of rusticity. Great with strongly flavoured sausage or cheese. Now-2025

Brousses translates as bush, or brush; this is, literally, the farm in the garrigue. Amidst the rolling scrub-covered hills around Puéchabon and the pebble-strewn terrasses near the Hérault river lie the domaine’s plots of vines. Tall Géraldine Combes (from a family who have inhabited Puéchabon, near Gignac, since 1525) tends the vines whilst husband Xavier Peyraud, grandson of the legendary Lucien Peyraud of Domaine Tempier, is the winemaker. What stands them apart from other estates in the Terrasses du Larzac is the high proportion of Mourvèdre, the vines coming from Xavier’s carefully transplanted cuttings from Tempier in Bandol. They have been organic in practice for years (with 2019 the first certified vintage) and now largely eschew sulphur in winemaking.

Great choice of good-value wines in the January sales. The website is really easy to use to make up an order. Delivery, as is often the case, was within 24 hours and, as usual, was well-packed.
