More about

This is a lovely Brouilly which gives all that you might hope for. Slightly darker than its northerly neighbours (Brouilly is the furthest south Beaujolais Cru) it manages to be a quite robust and bold wine. Brouilly typically manages to create wines that show off the Gamay fruitiness and spiciness more than the rest of Beaujolais and this wine is no exception.

On the nose the spices are dominant with cloves and cinnamon leading mainly dark plum and black cherry. The aromas continue in the mouth with the fruit reddening slightly and the spices still strongly present.

This is both light and rich, a delightful and elegant powerhouse, a paradox of style and flavour which is a real treat.

Ben says of the 2011 (October 2018): The notes above still stand, although maturity has led to a slight lessening of tannins so the wine is a little lighter than previously. Still lovely aromas and flavours.
