The colour of the wine is dark red, rich, with sparkle. The aroma is expressive, rich waith notes of spices and dark fruits. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, fruity, without too much opulence, with pleasantly firm tannins, delicate spiciness and a long aftertaste. It gains elegance and overall harmony as it matures.
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.
