#5 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008
"Brothers Daniel and Frederic Brunier represent the third generation of Bruniers to run this famed estate. With a large (173 acre) contiguous vineyard, a rarity in the appellation, the Bruniers rely heavily on Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah to produce their top red cuvée. Tight and almost gravelly in feel when young, the wine has a proven ability to reward cellaring. The 2005 is a blue-chip bottling from a structure-driven vintage."
