Axel Prüfer Brutal

Axel Prüfer Brutal


Country: France

Region: Languedoc

Grapes: Grenache

Vintage: 2018

Based deep in the Languedoc in hills just north of Béziers, Alex Prüfer has built a reputation as an alchemist of sorts, working with vineyards in one of the hottest and driest parts of France to create delicate and ethereal wines steeped in rugged charm.

In the spirit of the Brutal label this is Alex's most experimental cuvee, made from whole bunches of his finest Grenache macerated with skins for 11 months in stainless steel with no interference. It's more structured and full than the rest of his wines with fleshy Grenache fruit, plenty of savouriness and a touch of volatile acidity.
