Vignobles Brunier embodies the ensemble of the holdings by the Brunier family, notably Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe, Domaine La Roquète, Domaine Les Pallières (along with Kermit), and Vignobles Brunier. (Click on each domaine name for more specific information.) Vignobles Brunier came to be by brothers Frédéric and Daniel Brunier, the fourth generation of their family to farm the land of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The brothers have worked hard to solidify the legacy left by their father, Henri, and their grandfather, Hippolyte. They have brought their intricate knowledge of the various terroirs of the Southern Rhône to new heights through the expansion of the holdings. Their properties represent a vast variation of soil types, climatic conditions, and grape varietals.
The Bruniers’ vineyards in Châteauneuf-du-Pape are the most pedigreed of the appellation, producing wines of exceptional quality and longevity. The wines of Vignobles Brunier complement their portfolio, offering more affordable, everyday cuvées under the designations of Vin de Pays de Vaucluse and Ventoux, as well as a Châteauneuf-du-Pape from the famed Piedlong lieu-dit. The Vaucluse and Ventoux wines are fresh, rich in fruit, pleasantly representative of their terroir, and are easy to appreciate young. The Châteauneuf-du-Pape Piedlong offers a profoundly mineral wine while balancing elegance and purity with the muscle that is commonly found in wines from this great appellation.
