domaine brusset (600 x 350)

André Brusset started growing grapes in 1929 as was a founding member of the cooperative of Cairanne. André commenced the production of his own wines in 1947 with 13 ha of land in Cairanne. André’s son, Daniel joined him in 1966 and a new concrete vat cellar was installed in 1972.

In 1986, Daniel Brusset purchased 40ha of Gigondas AOC in Dentelles hills. The land required a significant amount of restructuring and terracing with 19ha now planted with vines.

Their Gigondas terroir is south-facing where much of Gigondas AOC is north to north-west facing and the soils are very rocky with high degree of limestone.

André Brusset’s grandson, Laurent started at the domaine in 1989. A new stainless steel cellar was installed in 1999 and André’s original cellar including the submerged vats are now used for ageing.

André Brusset died in 1999. A special Cairanne wine, “Hommage” is produced in exceptional vintages in memory of Laurent’s grandfather.

Today, the Domaine cultivates and produces wines from 19 ha in Gigondas, 38 ha in Cairanne, 23 ha in Cotes du Rhone (near Mondragon) and 5 ha in Ventoux (near Carpentras).
