Blanc de Noir Carignan, Bruma 'Ocho'
Eight partners (“Ocho”) launched Bruma with the intention of establishing the premier wine brand in Mexico. It’s fair to say that they dared to envision a project beyond the scope of the general perceptions that existed at the time they broke ground.
In addition to the winery (Bruma), they created the finest lodging (Las Villas & Ocho Casitas) while also operating one of Valle de Guadalupe’s top dining destinations (Fauna). To insure long term success they recently named all-star winemaker, Lulu Martinez Ojeda and superstar chef, David Hussong as partner in Bruma and Fauna respectively.
The property is located in the Northern most end of Valle de Guadalupe. Approximately 40% of Bruma’s total production comes from estate-grown fruit. The remaining fruit is sourced from Lulu’s uncle who is a legendary grape grower in Valle de San Vicente.
Pale straw color, clean and bright. Subtle and elegant nose, with an aroma of lemon tea, citronella, magnolia, green melon and mineral hints. Full circle attack and half of the palate creamy, with a live and fresh final. Floral and fruity with hints of peach aftertaste. Persistent in the mouth. This Blanc de Noirs is made from black carignan, inspired in the techniques of Champagne. It’s a surprising white wine that takes you to unknown paths.
