Brennus, Merlot, Bergerac, 2016, 75cl.
A chieftain of the Senones who invaded Rome in 390 B.C. JC, a designer, Pierre de Coubertin, and an engraver, Charles Brennus, founder of the French Federation of….. rugby!
The Brennus Shield, as most people know, is awarded each year to the winners of the French rugby championship.
For our Group’s winemakers, the product had to reflect the spirit of the name and packaging. Therefore they produce the wine in vintages with a strong build and impact, vintages with big, broad shoulders!
Grape Variety: 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc
Tasting Notes: violet red colours. The nose is complex with aromas of cooked prunes, caramel and vanilla.
The palate is powerful with melted tannins. Overall, it is a lovely wine with round character, a great deal of fruit, and a touch of oak.
