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

Centenaire 2007 - Decanter - Matt Walls : 95/100


It was 'warm, but not as warm as 2010, which was a bit too warm,' says Fabrice Brunel. Not too much coulure, so more grapes, leading to greater acidity and freshness. It's currently less evolved than the 2010, and showing some spicy, woody hints on the nose. Generous, but not heavy, on the palate with very silky tannins. The acidity is quite marked. Lovely fresh raspberry fruit still. In a good place - not hugely complex, but well balanced and harmonious for a 2007.
