Earthy, mushroomy and truffle filled nose. Hints of black olive. Dark style with espresso, grilled beef and tobacco notes. Big core of black fruits. Tarry finish. Some charred character as well. Feels thin on the mid-palate but there's plenty of flavor. Big and dark. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 6/12/10

This time around, a big nose of peppercorn and sage with big, black fruit. Aromas of crushed boysenberry and blackberry. Flavors of spice, toast, roasted meat jus, graphite, wood spice, and some tobacco. Slight hints of licorice. Big, bold and drinking nicely. Needs food.

Another outstanding Rhone from the infamous 2007 vintage. The nose is extremely fresh and vibrant with notes of raspberries, strawberries, cherries, cranberries and a touch of smoke. There's so much fruit on the nose that you'll anticipate a fruit bomb, but it isn't over the top at all. It's elegant, we'll integrated and delicious. Cherries come through in the mid-palate and the finish is rich and peppery. This is off-the-charts on the QPR scale.

The wine in the glass is a deep garnet color, about what you'd expect from a nice CdP. The nose is very mellow, almost surprisingly so, with hints of lovely fruit, black currant, blueberry, some interesting spice notes intermingled with rose petals and the faintest bit of barnyard. The taste is just sublime, with lovely ripe fruits bursting forth on the tongue, blueberry, ripe plum and a hint of boysenberry, transforming into some lovely jammy notes midpalate balanced with some earthy minerality. The tannins play well creating a long, smooth finish, with lovely flavors or dark chocolate and gravel. For a rather young wine, this one really is drinking quite well right now!

Really shows the ripeness of the vintage, with a wide, almost exotic range of crushed blueberry, boysenberry and blackberry fruit, liberally layered with graphite, woodspice and tobacco notes. The long, racy finish is filled with graphite and licoric... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2007 Feraud-Brunel Cotes du Rhone Villages 750ml

From the hierarchy of wines known as Feraud-Brunel, the 2007 Cotes du Rhone-Villages (70% Grenache and 30% Syrah) is excellent. This beauty displays super fruit, medium to full body, abundant character, and a long finish. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Very round and fleshy, with a big core of raspberry and boysenberry fruit framed by red licorice, mesquite and bittersweet ganache notes. Very juicy through the well-structured finish. Should unwind nicely in the cellar. Best from 2009 through 2023. ... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2006 Feraud-Brunel Chateauneuf du Pape 750ml

The partnership of Laurence Feraud and Andre Brunel began in 1998 and their connections have allowed them to purchase grapes from some of the oldest vineyards of Grenache. The aim in many of their wines is to bring out the interesting terroir flavors in order to create a stunning expression of Cote du Rhone.

Dark red. Superripe, high-toned nose shows a strong nut skin note. Fat, round and dry, with a flavor of walnut. Seems quite clenched today and in need of more freshness. The dryness carries through on the back end.

Bright red-ruby color. Superripe aromas of raspberry, strawberry, red licorice, garrigue and pepper. Then rather wound-up and reduced in the mouth, with hints of leather, black cherry, bitter chocolate, menthol and licorice. A substantial wine that finishes with slightly rustic tannins that dust the tongue and teeth.

This is a promising négociant enterprise formed by André Brunel of Les Cailloux and Laurence Féraud of Domaine du Pégaü. Given their significant contacts in the southern Rhône Valley, their goal is to purchase fruit from old, established, primarily Grenache vineyards. The 2000 Gigondas is a seductive, voluptuous effort displaying terrific notes of blackberry fruit, chocolate, and kirsch. Medium to full-bodied, pure, and soft, this sexy, opulent Gigondas should be enjoyed over the next decade.

Winemaker's Notes:

WINERY: "Feraud-Brunel is a promising negociant enterprise that began in 1998 with the partnership between Laurence Feraud and Andre Brunel of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Brunel is best known for Les Cailloux and Feraud is known for Pegau. Given their significant contacts in the southern Rhone Valley, their goal is to purchase wine from old, established, primarily Grenache vineyards. What sets this venture apart from other negociants is that it is run with the savoir-faire of truly exceptional winemakers working in perfect partnership." "Laurence Feraud & Andre Brunel have selected the terroirs in the Cotes-du-Rhone which they find most interesting and found talented winemakers who work year round with their oenologist, Philippe Cambie. Before the harvest, they work in the same manner as on their own estates in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, setting the yields and farming practives, and closely following the ripening and the sanitary state of the grapes. The fermentation of each wine is adapted to the qualities of the terroir, and when they feel the moment is right, they bring the wines to their cellars in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. After a period of ageing that marries the expression of terroir with a hard core of ripe fruit, the wines are bottled without fining or filtration. The result is a range of Cotes-du-Rhone wines of stunning quality, truly representative of their appellation and vintage." -Importer
