Wine Description:

Between Macon and Lyon, in the heart of the Beaujolais vineyards and at the foot of Mount Brouilly we find this beautifully renovated, magnificent building, located in an exceptional setting in the middle of the vines. Brouilly is very pleasing when young but also drinks well after a few years cellaring.

Tasting Note:

Juicy, quenching red currant, wild raspberry and dried strawberry bristles with acidity and potent finely textured minerality in this old vine Brouilly, with vine age averaging 60 years. Tannins are taut and grippy/gritty through to the lingering cherry and dried floral finish.
