Tasting note:The colour is young, sparkly, with golden highlights. The fresh aroma brings notes of pear, pineapple peel, white peach and lychee. The palate is balanced, beautifully rounded and slightly opulent, the subtle spiciness is wrapped in fruity notes with a salty mineral aftertaste, predicting great aging potential.

In 1963, Georges Delille bought what would become Domaine de Terrebrune, a property in Ollioules, just east of Bandol, framed by the Mediterranean and the mountain called Gros-Cerveau (Big Brain), dotted with olive groves and scenic views—an idyllic spot. Mass overhauling and reconstruction of vineyards followed the declaration of A.O.C. Bandol (1941);vignerons were eager to revive the noble Mourvèdre grape. Georges spent ten years just renovating the property, terracing hillsides and replanting vineyards following the advice of Lucien Peyraud. In 1980, his son Reynald joined him, and together they launched their first bottled vintage of Domaine de Terrebrune, which Reynald named in honor of the rich, brown soils they farm.
