A blend of Grenache with about 10% Mourvèdre, from younger vines planted on gravelly clay-limestone soil. Hand-harvested, the whole clusters are pressed gently and slowly to extract the pale color, followed by an indigenous fermentation in concrete. Aged for up to six months in concrete tank.
Reinhard Brundig, a successful film producer from Germany, founded Domaine de Courbissac in 2002. What drew him to this property located in the La Livinière sub-zone of Minervois was three-fold: established and well-tended vines, the complexity of the soils, and the proximity to La Montagne Noire. At the heart of Domaine de Courbissac are 90-year-old Grenache, 70-year-old Carignan, and 70-year-old Cinsault, as well as some solidly middle-aged Syrah and Mourvedre around 40 years-old. Farmed biodynamically since 2002, Reinhard has expanded the size of the vineyards, now totaling 30 hectares, by planting some additional Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre.
