More about this 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: Fruitier and fresher than the 2009 and 2011. A classic Brouilly that should delight everyone.

2011: Ben says (August 2017): Light and lovely, this wine has now come into its own. The years of waiting have been well worth it as this is now splendid. 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.

2013: Very similar to the 2011 but perhaps an easier-drinking wine. Ben says(July 2016): "The acidity is still quite high so keeping it a while longer would be a sensible decision. I would estimate a couple more years at before it reaches it's full potential. Having said that, it is very drinkable now. As fresh as  the morning dew with masses of cherry on the nose and palate. It is, of course, very mouthwatering so pair it with the right food and that will be balanced."
