André is an iconic brand of American sparkling wine that has been produced by E. & J. Gallo in California since the mid 1960s. The wine was first created to introduce Americans to affordable sparkling wines in an effort to compete with imported Champagne. In fact, André is one of the wines that gave the Champagne district in France impetus to brand themselves, declaring anything other than sparkling wine made in Champagne is just sparkling wine. That said, André remains a popular alternative, and since its inception is now available in a wide variety of styles including rosé and from dry to sweet.  Read less

The beautiful dark ruby/ purple colored 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape exhibits velvety tannins, a splendid opulence, broad, full-bodied flavors, superb purity, and the vintage's tell-tale freshness and vibrancy. Les Cailloux's traditional cuvee of Chateauneuf du Pape is a blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, 12% Syrah, and the rest Cinsault, aged in both tank and small barrels. It is a big wine (much in the style of the 1990), but the freshness of the fruit and aromatic complexity are more reminiscent of a vintage such as 2001. This 2007 should drink beautifully for 12-15 years. The brilliant Andre Brunel, and before him, his father, have done conscientious work in Chateauneuf du Pape for many years. Shrewd consumers have long flocked to Andre Brunel's Cotes du Rhones as they are loaded with personality and quality. Moreover, they sell for a fraction of the price of his Chateauneuf du Papes.

This gushes with blueberry, fig and black cherry fruit, all seamlessly woven with silky, fine-grained tannins. The stylish finish lets spice and incense notes check in, while buried minerality adds length. Drink now through 2019.

Deep, bright red. Pungent, highly complex bouquet evokes cherry-cola, blood orange, fresh flowers and minerals; smells like a Burgundy, and an awfully good one at that. Supple red berry preserve flavors are enlivened by juicy minerality and pick up a wild, smoked meat quality on the finish. Very impressive cuvee classique.

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.

Andre Brunel is one of Châteauneuf-du-Pape's most energetic, competent and talented proprietors. This wine shows a dark ruby/purple color, a super nose of pure raspberry fruit, licorice, herbs, and spice, explosive richness, superb ripeness, an opulent, chewy texture and a long, full-bodied, intense finish with that wonderfully sweet jamminess that characterizes top notch Châteauneuf-du-Pape. From 50 to 107 year old vines at "Les Cailloux," the soft old stones of an ancient riverbed.
