Grenache

This delicate, dry, fruit forward rosé is extremely fresh with notes of citrus, and red berries - strawberry. Extremely limited production.
 
Domaine de Courbissac was established in 2002. At the end of 2013, Reinhard Brundig partnered with the talented Brunnhilde Claux, a young vigneronne with an impressive resumé. Brunnhilde got her start at Domaine Gauby where she learned how to handle the natural exuberance of grapes grown in the generous Mediterranean climate. From there she moved on to Terroir al Limit in the Priorat where she worked with Dominik Huber for three vintages before Reinhard tapped her to lead Domaine de Courbissac.

With her training and experience making wines at Domaine Gauby and Terroir al Limit, Brunnhilde takes a decidedly hands-off approach at Domaine de Courbissac. She has continued the biodynamic farming practices instituted in 2002 and she harvests each plot and variety separately and manually. The grapes are transported in small bins where they are sorted at the winery. The younger vine fruit is usually destemmed while older vine fruit is left mostly intact. Fermentation are in concrete vats and well-seasoned, open top wooden fermenters. If Brunnhilde is fermenting with whole clusters, she will gently layer the fruit in the vat and by foot, press out any air between the bunches. This process releases a small amount of juice, and once the vat is full she covers it and leaves it to ferment with the natural yeasts present on the grape skins. After 9-12 days of maceration she presses the wine. Fermentation finishes in the respective aging vessels– mainly 40hl foudres. Unless necessary, SO2 is not used until right before bottling.
