Domaine de Bréseyme

Northern Rhône , northern rhone France

New to our list this year is Domaine de Bréseyme, which Nicolas Jaboulet of Maison and Domaines Les Alexandrins acquired 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.

Classified as Côtes du Rhône since 1937, Brézème has recently been taking steps to obtain ‘Cru’ status. With steep south-facing slopes and limestone, clay and pebble soil, the lay of the land is more reminiscent of the Northern Rhône. We are delighted to add to the list both the Côtes du Rhône Rouge, which is 100% Syrah, and the Côtes du Rhône Blanc, a blend of Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne. The red boasts concentrated flavours of blackcurrants, bramble and black pepper, well-balanced with bright acidity and firm tannins on the palate. The white has opulent aromas of ripe stone-fruit and ginger on the nose, with a lovely texture and lifted acidity on the palate. 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”.
