About this wine
To produce the Brézème Côtes-du-Rhône Blanc Domaine de Bréseyme, the harvest takes place early in the morning in order to preserve the freshness of the berries and the varieties are pressed together. Fermentation took place in temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks. The wine was aged for 12 months, 50% in tank and 50% in oak barrels, giving the resulting wine a rich texture.
Classified as Côtes-du-Rhône since 1937, Brézème has recently been taking steps to obtain ‘Cru’ status. Domaine de Bréseyme has four hectares split between ‘Brézème Est’ and ‘Brézème Ouest’ lieux-dits. The Côtes-du-Rhône Blanc is made from Viognier and Marsanne, which are planted on steep south-facing slopes and limestone, clay and pebble soil.
Domaine de Bréseyme was founded in 1999 by the Gresse family then it was acquired by Nicolas Jaboulet of Maison & Domaines Les Alexandrins in 2018. Located in the region of Brézème, from which the domaine takes its name, this up-and-coming area sits at the southernmost edge of the Northern Rhône Valley. The domaine currently cultivates four hectares, with a further 16 hectares still to be planted. Classified as Côtes-du-Rhône since 1937, Brézème has recently been taking steps to obtain ‘Cru’ status. With steep, south-facing slopes and limestone, clay and pebble soils, the lay of the land is more reminiscent of the Northern Rhône. Nicolas is very enthusiastic about this project and believes that “this forgotten terroir in the north of the Rhône Valley deserves as much attention as its illustrious neighbours”.
