Great Rhone Cru: Domaine Brusset Les Travers Cairanne 2020

It’s not the first time when a Brusset red amazes me. A top producer in the Southern Rhone for sure.

Purity, purity, purity. What a refined Southern Rhone red, with ripe regional character but also with freshness and an ethereal, Burgundy-like charm. Perfumed, nuanced, shows some red fruits besides the expected black currents. Full yet delicate. Balanced tannins, just what’s needed for the structure, not more, no hard edges here. Masterfully crafted, not a hair out of place. Beautiful, outstanding wine, easily CdP quality. For its weight: 10/10. 92+ points. Best buy, really over-delivers for €13. Stockist: Vinatis and many more throughout Europe, UK.
