True Brau-mance @ Love that Languedoc Episode 10

I make wine on the outskirts of a tiny French village named Villemoustaussou. This town name is enough to make even French heads spin. In episode 10, I visit Wenny Tari at the only other independent winery that I know of in town, Chateau Brau (pronounced like: “hey, bro, what’s up?)

They are organic growers and have been for a really long time, so it’s not just part of a fad. They have 14 different varietals on just 40 hectares and they make 18 different wines. Very interesting look at how small wineries can scale their business up without losing quality.

Oh and that bubbling sound you can hear throughout the video is a malolactic fermentation, I think.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy! We taste a barrel-fermented Chardonnay and a totally unoaked Cabernet Sauvignon and they’re both interesting.

The wines:
Chardonnay 2008, Domaine de Brau, Vin de Pays d’Oc
PURE Cabernet Sauvignon 2006, Domaine de Brau, Vin de Pays d’Oc
