2010 André Brunel "Les Cailloux" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1121882 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The Les Cailloux 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape possesses a dense ruby/purple color as well as lots of gamy, meaty notes intermixed with bouquet garni, licorice, black currants and kirsch, Spicy, fat, fleshy and evolved and forward for a 2010, this full-throttle, hedonistic and intellectually pleasing Chateauneuf du Pape should drink well for 10-14 years.  (10/2012)

93 points Wine Spectator

 This has a nice old-school edge, with toasted chestnut and singed juniper notes leading the way for dark cassis, blackberry and plum fruit flavors. A strong tarry spine drives the finish, where hot stone, lavender and tobacco lurk as well. For the cellar. Best from 2015 through 2025.  (10/2012)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright ruby. Red and dark berries and fresh flowers on the highly fragrant nose and in the mouth. Juicy and expansive, with a seamless texture and suave floral and spicecake notes clinging to a long, focused finish.  (1/2013)

Rhone Blends



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.


- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
