Côte de Brouilly "Les Griottes" 2016 75cl cl
£23.72

They still have the fresh grapey fruit, red berry and typical Gamay raspberry, violet and strawberry aromas of the Sept Vignes but are just that bit fuller. I might just be influenced by the name (which means red cherries), but I do get that red cherry flavour on the palate. Again a flexible wine, the ideal companion for regional dishes such as Poulet de Bresse à la Crème or with mushroom-based dishes (especially morels, if you can get them), but will also go well with white meats such as pork, especially gammon and ham.
