- Andre Brunel Les Cailloux Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2010 Product #26359 (In Stock)
Excellent vintage here, on par with 2001 or 1998.
“Assertive, exotically perfumed scents of black raspberry, wild herbs and incense, with a note of lavender in the background. Sweet, ripe, silky and expansive, with a nervy spine of acidity providing focus to the sweet red and dark berry preserve and floral flavors. The seamless finish shows strong spice and floral character.” International Wine Cellar 92 points
“The Les Cailloux 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape possesses a dense ruby/purple color as well as lots of gamy, meaty notes intermixed with bouquet garni, licorice, black currants and kirsch, Spicy, fat, fleshy and evolved and forward for a 2010, this full-throttle, hedonistic and intellectually pleasing Chateauneuf du Pape should drink well for 10-14 years.” Wine Advocate 93 points
- Andre Brunel Les Cailloux Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2011 Product #27669 (In Stock)
A long-time favorite excelled in 2011, making a classy CdP that's delicious right now.
"A fantastic estate that-s run by the talented and incredibly well spoken Andre Brunel, these character-filled efforts are made from his winery located in the southern part of the appellation. His 2011 base cuvee is one of the best in the vintage. The only red produced by the estate in 2011, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape is easily one of the stars of the vintage. Possessing a beautiful nose of sweet kirsch, underbrush, garrigue and subtle floral notes, this medium to full-bodied 2011 has superb mid-palate density, a core of sweet fruit and a great finish. As with the vast majority of 2011s, it won't make old bones, yet will deliver loads of immediate gratification over the coming 7-8 years. Drink now-2021."Wine Advocate 92 points
