A family business since 1931, we have been producing and maturing most of the Rhône Valley wines in our century-old oak casks in our cellars in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, from Châteauneuf-du-Pape to Crozes Hermitage, Gigondas and Côte Rôtie, our selections have always come from reliable and loyal partners over many years. Winegrowers on 75 ha, we cultivate, in a modern idea of sustainable development under the Terra Vitis label, our three vineyards: - Domaine Barville in Châteauneuf-du-Pape which produces wines marked by their extreme finesse, their fruit and their beautiful length. Château de Bord in Laudun (Gard), for which the white and red wines have the particularity of preserving a lot of freshness for wines from the southern Rhône valley - Domaine Grosset in Cairanne, a single red wine, powerful, ample and long, marked by liquorice, black fruits and spices.

Our story

Three characters will be the founding members of the Brotte House: Charles and Jean-Pierre Brotte (1st and 2nd generations) as well as Jeanne Laget, wife of Charles Brotte, respectively grandfather, father and grandmother ofLaurent Brotte (3rd generation), today the owner and General Manager since 1998." The Maison BROTTE is the result of my own convictions associated with the heritage of the values of my ancestors. I was born a winegrower, I know the business. Surrounded by professional men and women, Laurent Brotte summarizes his philosophy for the company he has been managing since 1998. He thus launched a "mini revolution" for the coming years." The certification of our estates as Terra Vitis, which can be used from 2014, has been the stepping stone towards a rationalisation and better organisation of our production and consequently of our posture downstream "The team of the Production department headed by Christine Brotte, supported by two oenologists and an agri-food engineer, orchestrates the work in a precise and natural way. The sorting equipment, the limitation of pumping to preserve the freshness of the fruit and the punching down for better extraction of aromas, tannins and colour go in this direction. The ageing cellar is made up of 200 oak barrels and 35 traditional 50hl oak casks, some of which, a few hundred years old, have stood the test of time.

Other little stories

A "tireless" globetrotting business leader, market observer and aware that the time has come to give himself the means to launch a new strategy. For Laurent Brotte, being the heir to the Maison BROTTE is neither a gift nor a burden. Just a necessity to make the right decisions to develop and establish the BROTTE name in a current and future economic dynamic. This need is all the more pressing as he has welcomed his sons, Thibault, 23, and Benoit, 21, representing the 4th generation of the Brotte family, to the company since 2014. Christine Brotte, wife of Laurent, Cellar Master, has also been leading the Viticulture and Winegrower Partnerships activities for eleven years. An experienced taster, she guides the blending and maturing of the different vintages. Cyril Tisopulot, Oenologist, has been managing all winemaking for the past thirteen vintages alongside other executives who have been with the House for many years, such as Emmanuel, production manager and agri-food engineer; Hilde and Jérémy, export and France managers. Finally, Jean-Pierre Brotte, Laurent Brotte's father, attached to the future of the family business, shares the benefits of his own experience with his descendants.
