2015 Mylene Bru 'Far-Ouest'
Grape/s: Syrah/Shiraz, Carignan, Cinsault
Her vineyard has never seen machines, but always the horse that pulls the harrow through the corridors between the sticks and incorporates the herbs and grasses into the barren soil of the 15 small plots. Grape processing is also archaic. Mylène Bru foregoes everything modern oenology recommends, no fining, no filtration. Wine becomes what it is: nature makes it fine, opulent, classy and very complex. A wild assemblage of Syrah, Carignan and Grenache. Intense and lively, fresh fruit, cherries and red berries, with spice notes of pepper and thyme, spirited on the palate, dense, accompanied by a lot of freshness, well-dosed, fine-grained. - Les Vins
