About this winery
From its humble beginnings in 1898, Vignobles Brunier has become one of the great family domaines of the Southern Rhône. Fourth generation brothers Daniel and Frédéric Brunier now oversee a very impressive array of properties, including La Roquète (Chateâuneuf-du-Pape), Les Pallières (Gigondas), and Le Pigeoulet (Vin de Pays de Vaucluse) as well as the legendary flagship Le Vieux Télégraphe. They have even expanded their activities to Lebanon, where they are now winegrowers at Massaya...

Notes about product
The grapes are sourced from young vines under 30 years old, plus older parcels not located on the Plateaux of La Crau or Piedlong, in an area of approximately 75 acres.
Grapes are hand-picked, then destemmed, followed by 25-30 days’ traditional fermentation in temperature controlled vats, pneumatic pressing, then systematic malolactic fermentation. Aged in vats for 10 months, then in French oak foudres for about 7 months. Bottled at 15-16 months and released at 18 months.
A Châteauneuf-du-Pape seriously dominated by Grenache, demonstrating a particular suppleness and roundness.
