Tasting notes

Commented by Olivier Poussier:

Color : A beautiful dark ruby ​​color with purple reflections.

Nose : The nose is open on a ripe and fresh fruit; the aromatic whole is juicy on the burlat cherry, morello cherry, pits and a hint of ground pepper. The nose is also marked by a graphite imprint of the soils which brings depth. The aged patina is nuanced and subtle.

Palate : The palate opens up with quality amplitude, a luscious heart with a powdery tannic structure that stretches the palate. The power is diffuse and the fruit quenches the thirst. It is a beautiful retro-flavors that associates the fruit of Gamay with the minerality of the soils. It is a sapid and fine whole that makes us forget its natural richness.

Service temperature : 59°F



James Suckling : "What a deep nose of sour cherries and forest berries this remarkable Brouilly has. The touch of forest-floor character will surely expand as it matures in the bottle. Simultaneously silky and vibrant on the medium-bodied palate. Wonderful freshness and precision through the long finish. "
