Wine Facts

The 2023 growing season benefitted from a warm summer and some late summer rain. The vines were gently pruned and harvested in late August to maintain freshness and acidity.

After harvesting, the grapes were pressed with limited skin contact to maintain the light color. The wine was fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel to maintain a smooth fermentation process.

One of Châteauneuf’s most revered estates is centuries-old André Brunel, who has been in the region since the 17th century and has been making wine for five generations. Though originally named Domaine Les Cailloux by Lucien Brunel in 1954, its current name is after the fourth-generation owner, André Brunel. Under André’s leadership, the estate expanded rapidly, with vines in the Côtes du Rhône AOC as well as Vins de Pays. In 1971, after André took over, he launched Grenache- dominant Cuvée Centenaire, the estate’s top wine, which solidified André Brunel as a major player in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. In addition, the family is leading the charge in the region for eco-friendly farming practices, eschewing chemicals at every turn. André’s son, Fabrice, is now at the helm of this pioneering estate, overseeing their three appellations.
