Côte de Brouilly - BRULHIER
0.5 hectares of vines on a steeply-sloped small parcel on the southern slope of Mont Brouilly.
The vines grow between 400 and 425 metres altitude, with an average slope of 28% and full southern exposure.
Soil is composed of Brouilly Diorite (andesite) also known as “Bluestone”.
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 down into the cellar where they spend 18 months in casks.
Deep ruby-red robe. The nose is redolent of iris and heirloom roses. Tender, mouth-watering juice distills fresh fruit all the way through to the finish.
Excellent when the fruit is youthful, however this wine can also be cellared for 4 to 5 years.
Serve between 15 and 16°C, with grilled beef, oven-roasted rack of lamb, goat cheese.
