Overview

Of the many sites that Gerard Bru farms, the closest in appearance to a classic Châteauneuf-du-Pape terroir is Cante Lebre, named for the hares and partridges that inhabit this vineyard. Predominantly Grenache with small parcels of Syrah and Mourvedre, Cante Lebre is distinct for the galets that cover the surface with clay limestone soils beneath. While the Grenache is aged in concrete tank, the Syrah and Mourvedre is aged in new French oak barrels.
