Tasting notes

A floral scent which is both fruity and honey-like, a mineral taste with viscosity in the finish, this wine will surprise you by its complexity and evolution of these aromas all throughout the tasting. The 2018 vintage, with its historical low yield but exceptional quality, allowed the Roussanne to fully express itself: elegance, finesse and length are the main characteristics of these unique vintage and wine.

Estate

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.
