The Côte-de-Brouilly appellation, located on the slopes of Mont Brouilly, is based on soils made up of rocks from ancient volcanism, “blue stones”.
More masculine than the Brouilly cru, the Côte-de-Brouilly improves after a few years of aging, in the order of 5 to 10 years.
Like the ten Beaujolais vintages, only the Gamay grape variety with white juice is authorized.
Eye: Intense ruby color, limpid and brilliant.
Nose: Very expressive, small red fruits, flowers such as violet, iris and peony as well as mineral and peppery notes.
Palate: Round but frank attack, mid-palate balanced between gamay fruits and mineral notes. The finish is very long, fruity, delicious and fresh.
Look at the wine:
The color, the shine, the nuances, the dress.
Smell the wine:
First glass nose immobile, the second nose after agitation and aeration.
Taste the wine:
The attack, the development in the mouth and finally the final note.
