Brunnhilde Claux is a young winemaker but already has quite an impressive résumé, working for Roussillon natural legend Gauby as well as Priorat's similarly heralded Terroir al Limit. With that background it's no surprise she is so skilled at working with Grenache. Her Notre Terre wines are made without any use of chemicals in the vineyards or sulfur. She uses the time-honored traditional method of the region, employing whole cluster fermentation in concrete, with little other intervention.
The Notre Terre Rouge is 100% Grenache Noir. Rich and juicy but never feels heavy, with just a little bit of wild, animal notes coming through. Brambly raspberry, maraschino cherry, and herbaceous spice round out the profile. It has a plump immediacy and outgoing personality that is dangerously easy to drink.
Certified Biodynamic, zero sulfur added. [Jonathan Kemp, March 2022]
