Description

WHO?

The name Vaudieu originated from ‘Vallée de Dieu’ (Valley of God), a reference to the beauty of the area. The Château is a splendid 18th century property now run by Laurent Bréchet who has transformed the estate through substantial investment and an obsession with quality. As at Vaudieu in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Laurent Bréchet has extended his commitment to quality to Domaine des Bosquets, his 25 hectares of vineyards in the Gigondas appellation.

WHERE?

Situated northeast of the town, the vineyards surround those of Château Rayas. Spread over 70 hectares the soils vary greatly, from sand to quartz (galets) and clay/limestone outcrops. This diversity of soil and exposure adds complexity to the blend, with the fruit from the sandier soils lending aromatic elegance and that from the galets (famous pudding stones) giving power and intensity. The vines are over 65 years in age and the fruit gains incredible levels of concentration as a result.

WHY?

This gorgeously situated domaine has been stepping up their game exponentially in recent years. The wines vividly show the highly perfumed, floral- and spice-laced character that defines the area, along with real depth and generosity of fruit and velvety texture. Winemaker Laurent Brechet, whose family owns the estate works with well-known consultant Philippe Cambie, and his efforts are steadily propelling these wines into the highest quality level of the appellation.
