Andre Brunel, the renowned producer in Chateauneuf-du-Pape of Les Cailloux maintains this wonderful old vineyard for Guy Dours, in the village appellation of Chusclan, on the western bank of the Rhone River. Chusclan is just north of Lirac and on the same latitude as Gigondas.
This wine is a blend of 75% 40+ year old Grenache blended with 30+ year old Syrah, and a dollop of Mourvedre. The vinification is classic Brunel with 80% of the grapes de-stemmed to ensure the purity and roundness of the Grenache fruit. This tiny cuvée is entirely made in stainless steel tank and fashioned in a supple, open style with a powerful core of fruit.
