Domaine les Cailloux, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Rouge

AOC Châteauneuf-du-Pape,, Rhône

A Châteauneuf du Pape allying the power of the terroir to the elegance and finesse characteristic of Andre Brunel wines.

Tasting Notes

Dominant aromas of red and black fruits enhanced by a woody touch from the barrel contained Syrah grapes. The tannins are harmonious and elegant. After 5 years, aromas of leather, undergrowth appear while the final note gains in elegance and length.

Red meat - game.

Concrete vat, destemming at 70% for the Grenache, and total destemming for the other grape varieties, racking and return for 5 weeks. Ageing for 18 months in barrels, from 1 to 2 years for the Syrah, ageing in concrete vats for 18 months for the other varieties. Final blending 6 months before bottling.

Grenache (70%), Syrah (25%), Mourvèdre (5%).

This cuvee comes from different plots, each with their own characteristics. Grenache on sandy soils give it’s roundness and fruit, whereas the syrah planted on round pebbles give their tanins and structure. The vines, younger than those of the cuvee « les Cailloux », allow this wine to be drunk young. The use of oak for the syrah gives enough structure and body to this wine to wait at least 3-5 years to let him express its full structure and complexity.
