The winemaking tradition of the Brunel family dates back to the 17th century. Gaston Brunel, a famous négociant, acquired the Château de la Gardine in Châteauneuf du Pape in 1945. The estate is now run by his two sons, Patrick and Maxime with the help of their wives Eve and Maryse and their children Marie-Odile and Philippe. The estate spreads over 52 ha of vineyards and 20 ha of forests, all gathered around the property. In 1998, feeling the potential of the Lirac terroir, they also bought the Château Saint Roch in Roquemaure where a selection of red, white, and rosé wines are produced.
*2016 Cotes du Rhone Chateau St Roch
$5.99btl/$60.00 per case
(Wine Advocate 89)
A wonderfully fruity, forward, black raspberry and floral-scented red, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone is medium-bodied, elegant and ready to go. It’s a rock-solid purchase to enjoy over the coming couple of years.
*2016 Lirac Chateau St Roch
$9.99btl/$96.00 per case
(Wine Advocate 90)
A blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 20% Mourvèdre, the 2016 Lirac delivers plenty of complexity on the nose and palate, with notes of thyme and sage mixing with ripe cherries and mixed berries. Medium to full-bodied, it’s creamy through the mid-palate, then silky on the lingering, herb-tinged finish. It should drink well for another 4-5 years.
