Pigeoulet rouge 2018
88-90. A blend of mostly Grenache and Syrah (there are small amounts of other red varieties), the 2018 Vaucluse Le Pigeoulet offers a complex style in its kirsch, herbes de Provence, white pepper, and floral aromas and flavors. This beauty is sweetly fruited, with polished tannins, loads of charm, and a great finish.
Mégaphone rouge 2018
89-91. A blend of 66% Grenache and 33% Syrah all from a single vineyard in the Ventoux, the 2018 Ventoux Megaphone is a richer, more serious wine that offers rich black cherry and blackberry fruits as well as plenty of ground pepper and garrigue aromas and flavors. It’s rounded and has good concentration, beautiful tannins, and a great finish. It’s going to keep for 7-8 years.
Le Pigeoulet Vin de Pays Vaucluse rouge 2018
90-91. Ripe red cherries and raspberries with a fine palate that has a very sleek, plush and attractive feel. The palate is sappy and plush. 80% grenache, 10-15% carignan and the balance is syrah. Drink now.
Mégaphone Ventoux rouge 2017
93. Super plush, and opulent, offering notes of sweet red plums, raspberry compote and darker blackberries. The palate is bathed in mixed-berry flavor, as well as dark cherries and dark minerals. Starts really supple, then turns fine and tightens through the finish. Noble tannins and darker fruit. A blend of 80% grenache and 20% syrah. A great vintage for this wine! Drink over the next five years.
Mégaphone Ventoux rouge 2018
91-92. A blend of 80% grenache and 20% syrah, this has a very rich and attractively ripe feel in 2018. Succulent, dense and very plush tannins carry an assertive, fresh and fleshy feel. There’s a salty mineral note, too. Drink on release.

2009 Pigeoulet red
Bistros, brasseries and consumers looking for an easygoing, quaffing wine should check out the Brunier’s Le Pigeoulet, which Daniel Brunier calls a ‘retro’ style of wine (meaning that in the age of power and generosity, this is a lighter, more elegant, fruity, earthy effort meant for immediate consumption). The 2008 and 2009 vintage are cut from the same mold, with the 209 being slightly deeper, with riper fruit. This 5,000 cs cuvee offers considerable value. 85

Gardez-le pour vous, mais derrière le Pigeoulet des Brunier et le domaine Les Pallières se cache le savoir-faire d’un grand nom de la vallée du Rhône : l’équipe du domaine du Vieux Télégraphe.
