Winemaker Notes: This classic Châteauneuf opens with a voluptuous aroma of black olive and licorice. On the palate, you'll find a firm backbone of tannin, juicy, brambly fruit, and charming floral notes. Blend: 65% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre, 15% Syrah, 5% Cinsault, Clairette, etc.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The final blend of the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape La Crau will include 60% to 65% Grenache, 15% each Mourvèdre and Syrah, with the remainder Cinsault. Boasting complex scents of roses, black tea, raspberries and cherries on the nose, it follows that up with a full-bodied palate that's silky and airy in texture yet flavorful and tremendously long on the finish. It fits perfectly with the Brunier's stated goal of pursuing elegance. Barrel Sample: 94-96"


Jeb Dunnuck - "The grand vin is the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape. It's an elegant version of this cuvée, offering beautiful blueberry, raspberry, crushed violet, graphite, and crushed rock-like minerality. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and balanced, it’s polished and seamless, yet has plenty of tannins as well as richness, and is going to evolve beautifully. Barrel Sample: 93-95"


James Suckling - "This has a lot of red fruit, a lot of personality and a lot of brambly aromas with spicy nuances, too. The palate has a very smooth build and a deep, plum and red-fruit core, framed in long, noble and rich, ripe tannins. The immediate fleshy appeal is high. Wait for the rest. Barrel Sample: 92-93"
