About the Estate:
Féraud-Brunel began in 1998 with a partnership between two celebrated winemakers: Laurence Féraud of Domaine du Pégau and André Brunel of Domaine Les Cailloux. At their own estates, they make highly regarded Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Through the Féraud-Brunel label, they source old-vine Grenache from the best growers in the Côtes-du-Rhône, turning them into some of the best-value wines in the region.Laurence and André work as diligently for the Féraud-Brunel label as they do for their own estates. After harvest, Féraud-Brunel wines are fermented and aged at André’s cellar in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and bottled without fining or filtration.
The partnership of outgoing Féraud and soft-spoken Brunel takes the best of both their personalities — and their exceptional winemaking — to produce wines that are fruit-driven, well-structured and true to their terroirs. These Côtes-du-Rhône wines over-deliver on every level. - Importer
