HideAway is happy to announce our Special Wine Dinner on December 7th, 2019!
Vertical Wine Tasting + Dinner!
At the HideAway Inn we have a once in a lifetime experience waiting for you!
Showcasing Chateauneuf du Pape,Clos des Brusquieres wines. Vintages ranging from 2004 to 2007. These years being some of the best that the vineyard has produced, all 90 point wines or better.
Clos des Brusquieres can be decanted for about 1 hour, give or take. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.
It is usually better with 2-4 years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage. In the best vintages the wine should be consumed within 3-12 years after the vintage.
With our bottles being some of the last in circulation for their vintage, we want to share this incredible adventure with you and offer an exclusive dinner for all our wine lovers!
Our Chef will be serving either beef, lamb, or duck for the main course. The vineyard itself suggests these classic meat dishes be paired with their unique wine.
Clos des Brusquieres is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift.
Clos des Brusquieres was founded in the early 20th Century in the Southern Rhone Valley. At the time the wine was known as Clos Courtil, being named after the family.
The property is one of the few Chateauneuf du pape producers that makes only one wine. Clos des Brusquieres owns 9 hectares of vines in Chateauneuf du Pape. Most of their vines are situated in Brusquieres, hence the name. Some fans of this estate have nicknamed the wine the poor man’s Bonneau, referring to Henri Bonneau.
This is because the owner is related to Henri Bonneau. Henri Bonneau is the uncle and godfather to Claude Courtil, the owner. Claude Courtil learned much of what he knows about winemaking from Henri Bonneau.
The terroir is mostly rocks and stones in the soil. But you also find other soil types in their vineyards as well. The vines are planted in the les Brusquieres, Pradel and le Tresquoys lieux-dits. The wine is aged different vessels, depending on the grape variety. The Grenache is aged in traditional cement vats.
The Mourvedre and Syrah are both aged in a combination of old and new demi muids. The aging usually ranges from 12 to 18 months depending entirely on the character and quality of the vintage. On average the production of Clos des Brusquieres is close to 2,500 cases of wine per year.
The Courtil family shares a deeply held commitment to natural winemaking: manual vineyard work, traditional aging in large foudres, and bottling without intrusive fining and filtration. With vines as old as 85 years of age, this is truly a special place, and one that is extremely deserving of your attention.
