Féraud-Brunel is a collaboration between 2 great winemakers: Laurence Féraud of Domaine du Pégau and André Brunel of Domaine Les Cailloux. They make an excellent Châteauneuf-du-Pape, but while those wines are in their slumber aging it’s a great opportunity to try their Côtes-du-Rhône. The Côtes-du-Rhône is made from old vine grenache sourced from some of the finest growers in the region.
A Côtes-du-Rhône from a top tier producer of Châteauneuf-du-Pape is one of the best values in the wine world. They are more accessible at a young age but also can be cellared for a while. The 2011 is showing no signs of slowing down. It is full of ripe berry and plum favors with notes of leather and game. A mixed grill of beef and sausages would accompany this wine nicely.
