Winemaker Notes

The vines are located in the Commune of St Génies de Comolas (Gard) on a poor sandy soil with lime-clay subsoil. With elegance and finesse in mind, the Grenaches grown there produce a low yield. The rest of the fruit comes from Travaillan in the Vaucluse and are grown on a stony soil with lime subsoil and produce a powerful wine. The vineyards are naturally worked with sustainable practice in mind. The blend is 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 10% old-vine Cinsault. The wine has aromas and flavors of small red berry fruits, blackcurrant and cherries with slight touch of spices.

Critical Acclaim

Wine Enthusiast
An excellent value, this comes from vines that average 40 years of age. It's unusually complex for the price, offering hints of cracked pepper, clove, leather, plum and mint, all delivered with ample weight and a rich, supple texture. Editors' Choice.

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.
