Dominant aromas of red and black fruits enhanced by a woody touch from the barrel contained Syrah grapes. The tannins are harmonious and elegant. After 5 years, aromas of leather, undergrowth appear while the final note gains in elegance and length.

"Sumptuous and delicious, the outstanding 2013 André Brunel Châteauneuf-du-Pape takes honors as one of the best wines I have enjoyed this month. This wine explodes with gorgeous ripe red and black fruit aromas and flavors. Its generous and well-built palate is inviting an evening with a savory homemade beef stew." -94pts, Wilfred Wong


"Brunel’s 2013 is traditionally styled. The aromas are peppery and ferrous, leaning toward sour plum, while the palate is medium-bodied, taut and silky, ending on notes of black olive and espresso. Drink it over the next 5–8 years." -Rated 90, Wine Enthusiast
