Chateauneuf du Pape "Les Cailloux" 2012 - Andre Brunel

A family owned Estate comprising of 22 hectares in Chateauneuf du Pape and 11 hectares in the Cotes du Rhone. Andre Brunel makes this wine from Estate grown grapes. Brunel's hallmark is fruit emphasis with balanced tannins and the fruit flavours lingering through to a long finish.

Grape Varieties: 70% Grenache, 10 % Syrah and 20% Mourvedre

Age of Vines: 60 years old for the Grenache vines and 15-25 years old for the Syrah and Mouvedre vines.

Vinification: The grapes are crushed and de-stemmed. Alcoholic fermentation is started by introducing selected yeasts and takes place in temperature controlled vats at 28-32C. Daily pumping over takes place. Part of the Syrah is aged in barriques (1/3 new, 1/3 1 year old and the balance in 2 year old barriques). Only 3% of the total blend spends time in barriques. The different cuvees are blended after having spent 18 months in large oak casks.

Serve: At room temperature with strong flavoured meat dishes, game and cheese.

Tasting note: A deep coloured wine with a hint of cherries, smoke and ripe fruit on the nose consistent through to the palate and finish. A concentrated, complete and elegant wine with smooth flavours lasting through to a long finish.
