Brouilly LA CHAIZE
Magnificent steep slope behind the Château. In the centre of the parcelle, le Clos de La Chaize, surrounded by its protective stone wall since 1676.
Porphyritic granite soil endows elegance and length on the wines made from this terroir.
Alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, in whole clusters and destemmed, depending on the percentages going into the vintage. Wine-making respects each terroir.
Carbonic maceration and pumping-over preserve Brouilly fruit and freshness. Wines then go into the cellar where they spend 18 months in casks.
Deep ruby robe. Shimmering aromas of lily and violet. Fruity juice with notes of damson plum. Delicate, smooth finish. The porphyritic granite gives up notes of sun-drenched stone. Chewy. Good potential.
Very drinkable as of the present time, with 5 to 10 years of good cellaring potential.
Serve between 15 and 16°C, with civet of rabbit, guinea fowl with cabbage, rack of lamb.
