From steep, south-facing slopes in the recently rediscovered region of Brézème, situated at the bottom of the Northern Rhone, this is a blend of Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne with vibrant stone fruits and a hint of ginger on the palate.
Boasting aromas of fleshy white peach, ginger and hints of almond on the nose. On the palate it is richly textured, well-balanced with racy acidity and concentrated flavours of orchard fruit, which linger on the finish.
Nicolas Jaboulet of Maison and Domaines Les Alexandrins acquired Domaine de Bréseyme 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. Founded in 1999 by the Gresse family, the domaine currently cultivates four hectares, with a further 12 hectares still to be planted. Nicolas is very enthusiastic about this new project and believes “this forgotten terroir in the north of the Rhône Valley deserves as much attention as its illustrious neighbours”.
