    Winemaker's Notes:

    Féraud-Brunel is a promising negociant enterprise that began in 1998 with the partnership between Laurence Féraud and André Brunel of Châteauneuf-du- Pape. Brunel is best known for Les Cailloux and Féraud is known for Pegau. Given their significant contacts in the southern Rhône Valley, their goal is to purchase wine from old, established, primarily Grenache vineyards. What sets this venture apart from other negociants is that it is run with the savoir-faire of truly exceptional winemakers working in perfect partnership.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Really shows the ripeness of the vintage, with a wide, almost exotic range of crushed blueberry, boysenberry and blackberry fruit, liberally layered with graphite, woodspice and tobacco notes. The long, racy finish is filled with graphite and licorice. Delicious. Drink now through 2011.

    From the hierarchy of wines known as Feraud-Brunel, the 2007 Cotes du Rhone-Villages (70% Grenache and 30% Syrah) is excellent. This beauty displays super fruit, medium to full body, abundant character, and a long finish. 88-90.

    The inimitable Feraud family, true guardians of the most traditional style of Provence and several Rhone appellations, is increasingly spearheaded by daughter Laurence, but her charismatic father, Paul, is always on the scene, with her mother, running the office. While Pegau’s expanding production should be carefully watched, the talent is certainly there. Forgetting the estate wines, there are three levels of quality and price, including a new Tetra Pak in a liter package that is quite good. There are also the Selection Laurence Feraud, a negociant line of wines, and a second negociant line-up sold under the moniker Feraud-Brunel, which Laurence oversees along with Andre Brunel. 2007 is an undeniably great vintage for the Feraud wines.

    This wine... literally knocked my socks off. I was not expecting what I got. Medium body with an initial sip of raspberry followed by darker fruit falvor and chocolate with a finish that is pleasantly woody. The structure is good, with a mild finish that complements the overall feel of the wine. The tannins are subtle enough to give structure without being aggresive or overly drying and the wine is just acidic enough to be lively instead of flat. I would give this a 91 or 92, and would easily say this is one of the best red wines I have had, especially in the price range.

    Very good. Not as dry as some coste-du-rhones. Nice finish.
