Chateauneuf du Pape - Vins - Domaine André Brunel - Les Cailloux

Centenaire 2005 - Decanter - Matt Walls : 93/100


This is 'similar to the '07 in terms of vintage, very warm,' says Fabrice Brunel. In the glass it still looks very young, deeply ruby red. Aromatically it's not the cleanest by today's standards, a little animal hint, slightly roasted, with a touch of benevolent decay in the background. Rounded, generous and juicy. The alcohol is quite raised here. Not the most complex but warming and long on the finish.
