Alchemy of wine

From the stainless steel tank to the concrete tank, from the oak barrel to the lightning just delivered, from the terracotta amphora to the stoneware jar, everything contributes to extracting the greatest potential from the grapes. The earthen containers revive the ancient memory of a vineyard already renowned in Gallo-Roman times. But the science of wine and the finesse of the experience make Domain of Brin a high place of wine alchemy.

Everything fits together to forge a path for the future in this cellar where the taste of well-kept vines finds its full expression in the passion for aging explored in all its nuances.

To the extreme

The winemaker's philosophy, benevolent with the vine and an active pragmatism in winemaking and aging, leads him to produce wines with a strong personality. It sparkles on the fruit and the flower with the sparkling cuvée D Bubbles that the ancestral method brings to light. It asserts itself on red wines, with the cuvée Vendemia which marries Duras and Braucol or Anthocyanins whose deep purple robe carries the colors and flavors of Braucol and Syrah. It is played with patience during the aging in barrels of Strand of Time. It captivates by the balance it brings to sweet wines that testify to the mastery of maturation, with a 100% Out of the Eye and a captivating Touch of madness which pushes the resources of a 100% Cabernet sauvignon to the extreme. Among the areas shaping the future of Gaillac wines, Domain of Brin, that is to say the winegrower Damien Bonnet, calls for the utmost attention.
