Since the Bruniers took over this estate, quality has soared, evidenced by their extraordinary 2007s
The limited production (330cs) is nearly as good as the profound 2007. Made from 100% Grenache from the sector of Châteauneuf-du-Pape known as Les Pialons, and aged one year in tank and one year in foudre, it exhibits a deep ruby/purple-tinged color as well as a perfumed nose of raspberry confiture, kirsch, spring flowers, licorice and a touch of minerality. Full-bodied with sweet, well-integrated tannins, and a long finish, this impressive, opulent Châteauneuf-du-Pape should drink well for 10-15 years.
