External Reviews for Domaine André Brunel Côtes du Rhône
Bright and juicy, this is still quite primal, with ebullient cassis, linzer torte and blackberry fruit pumping out, before more serious tar and ganache flavors harness the back end. Thereandrsquo;s a good juicy feel through the finish. This should settle in nicely in the cellar. Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah and Cinsault. Best from 2014 through 2024.
The Les Cailloux 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape (70% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre and the rest Syrah and other permitted grape varieties) may be the finest regular cuvandeacute;e produced at this estate, even eclipsing the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape. A beautiful deep, plum/garnet color is followed by notes of ripe figs, licorice, tobacco leaf, sweet herbs, pepper and sumptuous quantities of kirsch and blacker fruits. Intense and full-bodied with silky tannins as well as a plump, sexy, voluptuous style, it begs for consumption now and over the next 10andndash;15 years.
The Brunel Estate of Les Cailloux at Chemin du Bois de la Ville was established in 1919 and is named after the famous galet roulés (large stones) found in the vineyards of Châteauneuf. The Brunel family has lived in the area since the 18th century, although André's grandfather was the first in the family to turn his hand to winemaking and the tradition has continued since. André joined his father in 1971 and during his career as a Vigneron has turned Les Cailloux into a world-class domaine. This wine is deep vivid ruby in colour with deliciously ripe, christmas cake Grenache fruit. The palate is still very youthful with hints of black-cherry Syrah on the finish. This has lovely composure and builds beautifully to a velvety finish. Ideally this shoud be decanted or pre-poured for an hour before serving. 75% Grenache, 15% Cinsault and 10% Syrah on 40 year old vines
