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.

Tasting notes

The Grenache expresses all its qualities through the wine: exuberance of red fruit, roundness of tannins. The Syrah and the Cinsault bring their structure and elegance. The 2016 vintage, with exceptional climate conditions, makes this wine the perfect choice for enjoying memorable moments with your friends as well for relaxing evenings at home. Pairing with red meat and charcuterie.
