RATINGS

94James Suckling

What a Beaujolais beauty! Ripe and vibrant with a ravishing, silky texture on the palate, where the interplay of delicate cherries, mineral acidity and gentle tannins is spot on. What a long and refined finish!

92The Wine Advocate

...bursting with scents of blackberries, raspberries and licorice, followed by a medium to full-bodied, fleshy palate that's generous and fruit-driven, with succulent underlying acids...

91Vinous / IWC

Ripe dark berries and candied flowers on the perfumed nose. Pliant black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors show a hint of licorice, and a candied violet nuance adds a sweet touch. The floral note carries steadily through the finish...

17Jancis Robinson

...spicy and peppery...dusty/rocky fragrance... Sweet, ripe, dark-red fruit...so beautifully fresh...flesh on the palate...rich and deep. Becomes lighter and more dancing on the finish.

REGION

France, Beaujolais, Brouilly

Brouilly is the largest of the Beaujolais Cru appellations with 3,000 acres of vineyards. Unlike most of the other Beaujolais Crus, Brouilly is not a specific village. It surrounds the Côte de Brouilly appellation on three sides and in some years nearly 800,000 cases of wine are produced. The region is named for Mount Brouilly, an extinct volcano, and the name comes from “brûlé,” meaning burnt. As in virtually all of Beaujolais, the grape grown here is Gamay.

TYPE

Red Wine, Gamay, Cru Beaujolais

The Gamay grape produces a light, versatile and food-friendly wine. It is best known for making Beaujolais Nouveau, but it is also grown in Loire and Tours. Thankfully the 14th C. Duke of Burgundy’s degree to ban the grape did not spread through all of France.
