Exquisite. Clever winemaking, pushing the terroir envelope while also delivering ripe fruit and deftly dosed oak. Smooth tannins, silky texture, plenty of fruit and a hint of mineral, lead-pencil and wet earth in a balanced, medium-bodied package that plays to the strength of this somewhat fragile vintage. Drink now through 2010.

The 2000 Châteauneuf du Pape is pure sex in a bottle. A fragrant bouquet offers up aromas of spice box, cedar, pepper, jammy cherries, and a hint of plums and prunes. Dense, full-bodied, and evolved, but gorgeously succulent, this is a seamless, voluptuous Châteauneuf du Pape. Its fragrance, tactile mouthfeel, and explosive finish make for a sumptuous Châteauneuf du Pape to drink now and over the next 10-12 years.

Deep ruby garnet hue. Moderately full-bodied. Balanced acidity. moderately extracted. Mildly oaked. Mildly tannic. Brown spices, minerals, red fruits. Engagingly aromatic, with a firm and complex palate. Shows a solid integration of wool and fruit notes.

Two brilliant successes are Brunel's cuvees of 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape. The 2007 Les Cailloux Tradition (a blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, 12% Syrah, and 3% other authorized varieties) comes from 60-year-old vines and is aged completely in tank except for the Mourvedre and Syrah components, which are kept in small barrels. Explosively fruity, this dense plum/purple-colored wine displays grilled meat notes intermixed with Provencal herbs, spice box, black cherry and black currant, in addition to having a lush, opulent texture. The finish goes on and on, and the wine is beautifully pure. It can be drunk now or cellared for 12 or more years.

Bright greenish golden hue. Moderately full-bodied. Full acidity. Highly extracted. Minerals, lacquer, tropical fruits. Pleasant, though unusual aromatic lead to a firm and angular palate feel. A concentrated, intense style.

This offers lots of juicy, well-structured notes of garrigue, black cherry, plum, tobacco and olive tapenade, with a smoke- and licorice-filled finish. Ample grip and minerality leaves a rock-solid impression. Best from 2010 through 2025.

Reminiscent of his fabulous 1990, the deep, saturated ruby-hued, full-bodied, fragrant, flamboyant 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape boasts loads of kirsch liqueur, black cherries, plums, figs, currants, and spice box as well as broad, expansive, spicy flavors. An expressive, silky, full-throttle finish possesses copious amounts of glycerin, alcohol, and fruit. Low acidity, huge flesh, and an up-front personality suggest drinking this 2003 upon release, and over the following 12ndash;14 years.
