The Wine
This cuvee gets its name from the countless round pebbles present in the vineyards as well being at the origin of the Domaine’s name. Dominant aromas of red fruits enhanced by a woody touch from the barrel contained Syrah grapes. A great taste of red fruits, leather and undergrowth. The tannins are harmonious and elegant. Long finish in the mouth allowing for even more complex aromas of undergrowth, leather ... the wine allies strength and elegance, complexity of secondary aromas while keeping a fruity freshness.

The Brunel Estate of Les Cailloux at Chemin du Bois de la Ville was established in 1919 and is named after the famous galet roulés (large stones) found in the vineyards of Châteauneuf. The Brunel family has lived in the area since the 18th century, although André's grandfather was the first in the family to turn his hand to winemaking and the tradition has continued since. André joined his father in 1971 and during his career as a Vigneron has turned Les Cailloux into a world-class domaine.
