About the Wine:
If the Brunier family’s regal and structured Châteauneufs are best suited to a nice tablecloth, low lights, and ribeye or slow-cooked leg of lamb, their bright and juicy Pigeoulet is perfect right out of the ice bucket at your next backyard barbecue. Of course, it has that unmistakably spicy and rocky finish so evocative of the southern Rhône, but this is about as quaffable as the region’s rouges get.

Ratings & Reviews


92 Points - James Suckling: 
" A vivid, juicy yet serious red with notes of cherries, strawberries, crushed raspberries and some roasted black pepper. Medium-bodied with fine tannins. Lively and spicy, with pure fruit character at the center and some dried herbs lifting the finish. Drink now." (June 2024)
