RATINGS: 92pts Jeb Dunnuck

The Brunel family has been in the Chateauneuf du Pape region since the 17th century and has been fully committed to making wine for five generations. The first vineyard beginning was purchased from the Bishop of Avignon located in the north of the appellation. In 1971, Andr Brunel took over the reins of the Domaine. We want to produce wines reflecting their region and origin while remaining elegant and wonderfully subtle. The Domaine boasts about 40 hectares in Cotes du Rhone, mostly located to the east of the city of Orange and the rest being in the Gard near Lirac. His endless motivation resulted in rapid growth for the Domaine: repurchasing of Cotes du Rhone and Vins de Pays vines. He also made some considerable changes in the vine management process by being one of the first people to use a ground covering method and take a non chemical approach to wine farming. In 2012, his son, Fabrice Brunel, joined the team so the family history can continue.

Tasting Notes: Jeb Dunnuck 92 points- Apple blossom, citrus, and hints of pear all define Brunel's 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc, and it's richer and more concentrated on the palate than the nose would lead you to believe. Pure, elegant and layered, with vibrant acidity, it's a classic southern Rhone white to enjoy over the coming 3 4 years. This cuvee is made from 80% Roussanne and 20% Grenache Blanc, brought up all in tank..October/2017
