The Brunier brothers of Vieux Telegraphe fame have produced this special Châteauneuf du Pape from two distinct parcels since 2011. It is a blend of 90% Grenache (70-year-old vines) and 10% Mourvèdre (50-year-old vines). The Grenache is situated on the stony Piedlong plateau in the heart of the Châteauneuf appellation, north of the village and the highest point in the production area (128m). The Mourvèdre comes from the sandy Pignan lieu-dit, east of Piedlong. The wine is aged for 20 months in French oak foudres and there is no filtration or fining. This is a classic Brunier wine with the mineral expression dominating the character although there is plenty of richness and depth too
