Wine Spectator:

"Features some briary grip and slightly chewy edges around a dense core of plum and bitter cherry fruit. Sage and chestnut accents fill in on the finish. A solid, gutsy version in need of a little unwinding. Best from 2016 through 2020. 270 cases imported."

Product Description:

WINERY: "Feraud-Brunel is a promising negociant enterprise that began in 1998 with the partnership between Laurence Feraud and Andre Brunel of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Brunel is best known for Les Cailloux and Feraud is known for Pegau. Given their significant contacts in the southern Rhone Valley, their goal is to purchase wine from old, established, primarily Grenache vineyards. What sets this venture apart from other negociants is that it is run with the savoir-faire of truly exceptional winemakers working in perfect partnership." "Laurence Feraud & Andre Brunel have selected the terroirs in the Cotes-du-Rhone which they find most interesting and found talented winemakers who work year round with their oenologist, Philippe Cambie. Before the harvest, they work in the same manner as on their own estates in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, setting the yields and farming practives, and closely following the ripening and the sanitary state of the grapes. The fermentation of each wine is adapted to the qualities of the terroir, and when they feel the moment is right, they bring the wines to their cellars in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. After a period of ageing that marries the expression of terroir with a hard core of ripe fruit, the wines are bottled without fining or filtration. The result is a range of Cotes-du-Rhone wines of stunning quality, truly representative of their appellation and vintage." -Importer
