Winemaker Notes

The 2012 Chateauneuf-du-Pape exudes very forward fruit, and is a terrific example of a classic Chateauneuf-du-Pape displaying characteristics of cherries and blackberries along side of the classic Provencal spice and herb notes.

Wine & Spirits
Although Brunel uses younger-vine fruit for this bottling (his older vines provide the fruit for Les Cailloux), it has plenty of complexity, from the spicy, herbal fruit to the notes of shiitakes and seaweed that give it a saline, umami depth. It’s mature and savory.

Andre Brunel Les Cailloux Vineyard Winery Image

The Brunel family’s winemaking history reaches back to the 17th century with the purchase of a vineyard plot to the north of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation from the Bishop of Avignon. Numerous generations followed, all working in the vineyards, but it was in 1954 that Lucien Brunel created the name "Les Cailloux" or "The Pebbles" to promote the Domaine’s wine qualities and special geological characteristic of the large oval stones covering his vineyards.

In 1971, Lucien’s son André Brunel took the helm at Domaine Les Cailloux. His endless motivation and eye for quality resulted in a steady expansion of the family’s vineyards with acquisitions in the Côtes du Rhône and select plots of Vaucluse Vins de Pays. In 1989 he launched the now coveted Cuvée Centenaire and continued to improve the vineyard management practices. André was one of the first in Châteauneuf-du-Pape to use tailored ground cover methods and to practice a non-chemical approach to farming his vineyards.

In 2012, André’s son, Fabrice Brunel, joined the team to ensure the family’s history and passion would continue. The pursuit for quality; the utmost respect for the land; and the drive to produce beautiful wines, which are both enjoyable in the immediate present as well as in future years with excellent aging potential, the Brunel family is meticulous in cultivating vineyards, sourcing quality grapes, and winemaking style.
