2020 André Brunel Cailloux Châteauneuf du Pape

$69.95

Clean and elegant, the nose features red fruits typical of Grenache with pepper and spice from Mourvèdre and Syrah. The spices are more pronounced on the palate, enhanced by a touch of oak. The palate is fruit-driven than classic Châteauneuf-du Pape, showing its savory side through along finish.

James Suckling

This traditional style Chateauneuf has a complex nose of leather, dry earth, candied orange peel and licorice. More red-berry fruit on the expansive yet delicate palate, where there’s a wonderful interplay of super-fine tannins and restrained richness through the very long, silky finish.
