Domaine Les Cailloux André Brunel
Côtes du Rhône, France
“Our family has been in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region since the 17th century and has been fully committed to making wine for five generations.” - André Brunel.
André Brunel’s wines fall under the Les Cailloux Domaine, which was created in 1954 to promote the uniqueness of the wines produced from these plots of land. André Brunel officially took over in 1971 and is a crucial component in Domaine’s wines’ success.
André Brunel was one of the first to introduce a ground covering method, which was an excellent alternative to chemical use in the vineyards. There is an unmistakable sense of thoughtfulness and care throughout the winemaking process, which has led to praise from consumers globally.
Interestingly, the estate is divided into three appellations: Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes du Rhône, and Vins de Pays. In each of these appellations, a unique set of varieties is grown to highlight each area’s uniqueness and the quality they are capable of.
