CHATEAU BRILLETTE, THE ESTATE’S GRAND VIN

Chateau Brillette’s forty-five hectares of vines are planted on an exceptional site on one of the highest points of Moulis-en-Médoc. It is a most singular terroir that allows us to produce a highly expressive wine with great character.
Concentrated and refined, with aromas of ripe berries and spices and a subtle touch of woody notes, Chateau Brillette is the estate’s purest form of expression. Wonderful after only a few years of aging, it is even more exquisite after long cellaring.

HAUT BRILLETTE, The VERVE AND FRESHNESS OF YOUTH

Seductive and filled with energy, Haut Brillette is delicately crafted from the estate’s youngest vines. Haut Brillette’s tantalizing aromas of fruit and lovely structure, supple, silky tannins and wonderful acidity on the palate are best enjoyed when the wine is young and its fruit is at its most flavorful and seductive.

BRIN DE BRILLETTE, OUR VEGAN WINE

Embracing a sustainable approach to winemaking is essential to reducing our environmental impact and respecting the balance of our ecosystem. With the launch of our vegan wine, Brin de Brillette, in 2018, we sought to further limit our impact on the environment, using a lighter glass bottle to improve recyclability, water-based ink to print labels and packaging, grass paper for our labels, plant wax for our capsules and recycled, recyclable cardboard for our boxes.

Balanced and expressive, with a nose of fresh fruit and delicate texture on the palate, Brin de Brillette is perfect for enjoying with friends for a moment of pure delight!
