- The Wine
Philippe Deschamps makes a delicious and impressive Brouilly. We're lucky to still have four different vintages in stock which cover two milestone years and an excellent classic year.
2009: Slowly coming into its stride
2010: Drink in 2019.
2011: Fabulous in 2019 and will keep.
2013: Nice to drink now but a touch subdued. Could get a second wind like the 2007
2015: still a baby - but a very ready to drink baby.
Brouilly Cuvée Prestige (2013)0.75 2018-03-14
Very similar to the 2011 but perhaps an easier-drinking wine. The acidity was quite high so it has kept well.
It was as fresh as the morning dew with masses of cherry on the nose and palate and very mouthwatersing in 2017 still
By 2019 I think it needs to get drunk in the next 2 years, unless it rebounds.
Brouilly Cuvée Prestige (2011)0.75 2019-05-01
What a difference a year makes! Unlike the 2010, which is starting to show signs of age in 2019, this is still going strong and very good indeed.
The nose has hints of burnt toffee and stewed plums with other black fruits, mainly cherry, swirling around in the mix. In the mouth this is an acidic cherry hit. It is fabulous.

tasting notes:The time has come to drink this wine before it is too late. still drinkable with pleasure in 2019 but starting to lose a little of it's former glory.

Brouilly Cuvée Prestige 2015, Deschamps
This has it all. Abundant fruit, mineral complexity and freshness with the beginnings of interesting bottle age starting to show but plenty of room for further development. Incredible bargain.
