2016 Grenache, Domaine André Brunel, Rhone, France
Complex and intense with peppery spice, dense berry fruits and hints of raspberry, cocoa and vanilla on the palate. The pretty, fleshy strawberry fruits hide serious character.
A stunning match for lamb - whether it be chops or roast.
The Brunel family has lived in the Southern Rhône since the 18th century. Andre Brunel's grandfather established the family winemaking tradition, and Andre himself took over the reins of running the Cailloux estate from his father in 1971. Under Andre's expert direction, Les Cailloux is now widely recognised as a world-class domaine. The vineyard holdings today span 80 hectares throughout the southern Rhône valley.
