- Since purchasing the estate with its original 10 hectares of vines, the Brunel family has managed to grow the vineyards into their current 52 hectare size today. Currently, Chateau de la Gardine is managed by Marie-Odile Brunel. While most estates in Chateauneuf du Pape have vines spread out over the appellation, that is not the case with Chateau de la Gardine as most of their vineyards are next to each other in the north-west section of the appellation. The 52 hectare vineyard of Chateau de la Gardine has a terroir of gravel, loam, limestone and pebble soil. The oldest vines were planted in 1925 and 4 hectares are reserved for the white wine. The wines of Chateau de la Gardine are aged in a combination of small, French oak barrels and foudres.
Black cherry, raspberry, and the occasional hint of strawberry all come together in this lovely Cotes du Rhone. Additional notes of woodsmoke, cordite and fine but subtle minerality complete the picture. Excellent, traditionally made Cotes du Rhone.
- "Full of roasted Rhone fruit and showing licorice and black cherries, this is a very good example of Cotes de Rhone from Gardine" - John Livingstone-Learmonth, Wine Jounalist & Author.
