About Mylène Bru
Born in Sète and raised in the Corbières, Mylène has now settled north of the port town of Sète, along the Mediterranean Sea. She started without any electricity, on a small patch of soft, chalky limestone that is completely untouched and shares no neighbors (and so no runoff). Her estate is a small one. The vineyards are covered in a local herb, ‘garrigue’, which imparts an unmistakable savory flavor to her elegant, natural wines. She works biodynamically with her partner Bruno on a mere 5 hectares, where they grow a litany of different varieties like Tempranillo, Carignan, Cinsault, Syrah, Aubun, and Chasselas, amongst others. These grapes are pristine, and Mylène and Bruno foster them into these incredible wines that are the stuff of their dreams. There’s nothing like listening to Mylène and Bruno tell the story of their wines. It’s a love story, through and through, and that’s the criteria that matters most to us. Rita is an ode to Mylène’s grandmother, and to Rita Hayworth. Zulu is a nostalgic nod to Bruno’s childhood home in South Africa. Each and every cuvée has its story.
As a woman, Mylène wasn’t welcome to take the reins for her winemaking family. Her passion and vision is all her own. These wines are her ideas. There are so many great wines out there, but the wines from Mylène and Bruno have something we don’t discuss enough in the natural wine community: a perspective, a human hand and heart that tells us a story about their beautiful place on the foothills of the Pyrenees.
