Description
  • The name and reputation enjoyed by Brouilly, a Cru du Beaujolais, is a fairly recent phenomenon. The Brouilly is produced from grapes grown on the ideally situated southerly facing pink granite slopes which gain maximum exposure to the sun's warming rays. As a result the Gamay fruit produced reaches maximum ripeness. Once harvested, by hand, the fruit is fermented in whole bunches of grapes in open vats. Brouilly is a soft, perfumed wine which marries tenderness with richness.

    The Brouilly 2011 is of a lovely garnet colour. On the nose as well as on tasting, there are aromas of berries, in particular strawberries and blackberries with spicy notes. It is a round and perfectly balanced wine.
