Ch̢teauneuf-du-Pape 'Les Cailloux', Domaine Andr̩ Brunel

Concentrated, velvety and harmonious with a wonderful alliance between power and elegance and culminating in a long and savoury finish.
The grapes were partially destemmed, crushed and pressed. Extraction was kept to a minimum to avoid an overly tannic wine. Alcoholic fermentation was started by introducing selected yeasts and took place in temperature controlled concrete vats at 28-32å¡C. During fermentation, daily pumping over took place. The Grenache and Mourv̬dre were vinified and aged in concrete vats for 18 months. The Syrah was aged for 18 months in barriques of first and second use, with the objective of not imparting oaky aromas, but rather to soften the tannins of the Syrah while young. Final blending took place six months prior to bottling.

Three words to describe this wine:
