Domaine de Brin is found in the rolling countryside near the towns of Gaillac and Cordes-sur-Ciel in that quiet part of Southwest France where Occitan can still be heard in sleepy village restaurants. Winemaker Damien Bonnet is firmly dedicated to fully organic and biodynamic farming and minimum intervention in the winery, convinced that a healthy, polycultural vineyard yields better wines. Damien considers everything that grows on the estate, from lentils to sunflowers to the oak forests that ring the vineyards, to be essential to the character of the wines, and while his winemaking always comes with a light touch, he is constantly experimenting with different aging vessels and techniques. For this skin-contact cuvee, he put Mauzac in sandstone vessels for three weeks to see how a small, unregarded yellow grape variety would respond. Color us convinced, because this wine has the combination of intensity, structural depth, and complexity so long assumed to be the sole province of red wine. On the nose, the Brin Mauzac offers up black pepper, Bergamot tea, and lime zest; apple, peach, and apricot fruits with oak leaf underbrush and gardening soil earthiness. The palate is unambiguously full bodied, defined by a sturdy tannin structure, gentle acidity, and bold flavors of orange, apricot, lime, and a strong clay-lined earthy note. The finish leaves behind impressions of dried fruits and tannins that demand an earthy, savory food pairing like french pea soup, tikka masala, or hearty sausage dishes.
