Overview

Julien Brechet not only tends vines in Gigondas but he also inherited vines in Beaumes-de-Venise and Séguret. Both are mountain terroirs similar to Gigondas and centered around dramatically beautiful Provencal villages. Séguret lies north of Gigondas, where the Ouvèze turns east, flowing towards the foothills of the Alps and past another picture-postcard town, Vaison la Romaine. The eastern edge of the Rhône valley is famed for its delicate aromatic red wines due to elevation and poor, gravelly soils. In the hands of Julien Brechet, his Séguret has a core of juicy, dark fruit with lively freshness and aromas of wild herbs.
