The Brunier brothers, authors of many a legendary southern Rhône bottling, created the Pigeoulet to satisfy a demand for everyday drinking wine at a good price for even the most modest of occasions. The fruit—mostly Grenache, along with Syrah, Carignan, and Cinsault—comes from two separate vineyards. One is a sandy, clayey parcel located just outside of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, where scorching summer temperatures give plump ripeness and velvety texture. The other is a much cooler vineyard; harvest takes place two full weeks later. Planted at higher altitude on limestone at the base of Mont Ventoux, this plot contributes freshness and aromatics to the blend. The whole is a very delicious table red full of warm, sunny Provençal flavors, to be uncorked any and every day of the week.
