Located at the domaine, La Brunelle is Roty's unofficial Monopole. Larger and deeper, characteristic of the wine's origin, La Brunelle maintains red fruit aromas with smoke and animal notes with the structure and finish to provide great aging potential.
"Medium red. Deeply pitched aromas of redcurrant, mocha and rust. Fat and sweet, with some new oak to go with wild smoke and game notes. I wanted a bit more lift but this youthfully closed wine is not yet displaying its personality."

"Here too there is noticeable reduction so give this some air if you're tempted to try a bottle soon. There is good richness and mid-palate concentration to the suave and mouth coating medium-bodied flavors that possess good punch and detail on the long if only moderately complex finish that evidences enough structure to suggest 6 to 8 years of upside development potential."
