Tasting notes

Commented by Olivier Poussier:

Color : An intense primary purple ruby ​​color that shines with its youth.

Nose : The nose reveals red berry and stone fruits. A certain florality sets in with notes of peony and dried roses. The markers for the entire harvest are there. The graphite feel of the granites brings depth. It is a beautiful maturity which is expressed differently from that of the Brouilly crus. The fruit undergoes less ripeness and a mineral freshness gives more elegance.

Palate : The palate is ample with a full and firm heart. The tannin frame is tactilely perceptible from the heart of the mouth, it brings this noble opposition to the richness of the vintage. The aftertaste of flavors is marked by red berries and spices.

Service temperature : 59°F



James Suckling : "This Cote de Brouilly has a haunting bouquet in which a smoky minerality is beautifully interwoven with the violet and forest-berry aromas. Then comes the very graceful palate, which has a wonderful blood-orange freshness that drives the long, lingering finish. Excellent aging potential. "
