Les Cailloux Rouge has an elegant and clean nose that features red fruits typical of Grenache (strawberry, cherry, raspberry), combined with spice and pepper from Mourvedre and Syrah. The spices are more pronounced on the palate, enhanced by a touch of oak from Syrah that is aged in the same barrels where its fermentation takes place. In the mouth, the wine is less fruit-driven than classic Châteauneuf du Pape, showing its savory side through a long finish. It is approachable now and will continue to evolve for five to eight years.

The Brunel family has called the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region home since the 17th century, making wine for five generations. In 1971, André Brunel took the helm of the Domaine, growing rapidly and launching the infamous Cuvée Centenaire. In 2012, André’s son Fabrice joined to continue the family legacy. André Brunel wines reflect their region and origin while remaining elegant and subtle. The main grape variety grown is Grenache. Seventy percent of their vines are planted to Grenache followed by 17% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, and 3% Cinsault.
