Tasting Notes: Fresh red and dark berry scents are complemented by suggestions of lavender and allspice. Juicy black raspberry and licorice pastille flavors show a hint of smokiness, and a peppery note adds lift and cut. Closes gently sweet with sneaky tannins and very good, floral persistence.
Winery Notes: Vignobles Brunier embodies the ensemble of the holdings by the Brunier family. Brothers Frédéric and Daniel are the fourth generation of their family to farm the land of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. They have worked hard to solidify the legacy left by their father, Henri, and their great-grandfather, Hippolyte. In 1986, the family complemented their portfolio, offering more affordable cuvées that showcase the diversity of terroirswithin their holdings. Megaphone is one of these offerings - and a tremendous value!
