Bruno Duchene - 2020 La Luna Rouge

2020 La Luna Rouge

Roussillon, France

"This rare beauty is always a silky, sensual delight. Made from Grenache it displays complex aromas of strawberry, black cherry, citrus, violet, plum skin, and earth. Intense fruit on the fresh, medium-bodied palate, with blackberry freshness - on the finish there is a silky texture with lively acidity with suggestions at rose water and fabulous length. Delicious!

Bruno owns just 4 hectares spread over 4 areas, all on decomposed schistose soils at an altitude of around 300m - each parcel differing slightly in exposition. The vineyards in Collioure are extremely low yielding and, as they are planted on terraced hillsides, very difficult to work mechanically. Also making Bruno's wines very hard to get your hands on, as the yield is so small and demand so high." – Andrew Guard, Importer
