Overview

In pursuit of more terroir-based cuvées from his 70 hectares of vines, Laurent Brechet created L’Avenue, a Châteauneuf-du-Pape made from 100% Grenache grown primarily on a sandy terroir of decomposed red sandstone. This terroir makes for an expressive and vibrant style of Grenache and one when tasted along side Amiral G, is a masterclass in seeing how terroir in Châteauneuf-du-Pape really matters.
