"Rita" is a very personal wine for Mylène, named after her grandmother. The wine is stored in steel tanks between 15-18 months. The vines are 60 years old, which helps to give the wine a very complex character. Rita has inviting aromas and flavors of cranberry, raspberry, licorice, spices and minerals.
Rita can easily be enjoyed alone or with meals such as fresh tagliatelle with shredded beef sauce, grilled entrecote, squid ink risotto, veal, chicken dishes or chocolate desserts.
René Langdahl: "Farmish, dark berries, blackberries and cherries, juicy, fresh, herbaceous, bitter and rustic, coarse-grained in the funny way, medicinal, full of quinine and wormwood with lots of sweet raspberry in the aftertaste. Reminds a lot of Danish Rune Elkjær's wine from Rhône. Just seems like food wine… damn! Slightly carbonated acidity that lifts the wine.”
Niels Lillelund: "It is an elegant, clean, balanced wine with fine fruit, unobstructed juice, pure drinking pleasure."
Domaine Mylène Bru started in 2008, when Mylène Bru bought 4 hectares of vines. Here she was without water, electricity and generally had very difficult conditions for producing wine. Mylène is a trained oenologist and she really knows what she is doing. It is not experiments that she sends to the market. Everything is done deliberately. She produces top natural wines with a fascinating personality and passion. Mylène's wines express nature, authenticity, daring and honesty. Her wines are enjoyed in several Michelin-starred restaurants in France, and French icon actress Catherine Deneuve is among Mylène's fan base.
