Lieu-dit "CHAVANNES"


Plot with a moderate to significant slope, made up of very porous surface soil, with a high sand content, favoring deep root exploration. This is a very qualitative terroir, dominated by pink sands from granites. Underground, we observe the appearance of granite alterite around 60 - 80 cm deep, whose friable nature allows the roots to continue their exploration.

Tasting notes

Commented by Olivier Poussier:

Color : A dark ruby ​​with purple reflections.

Nose : The nose is open on black and red fruits. The level is good but suffers a little more from the solar side. A sweeter and more stewed tone defines the fruit which reveals itself like a coulis. The graphite presence is lighter, the wine is more based on the generosity of the fruits.

Palate : The palate is rich, opulent, with a full and pulpy heart. The whole is unifying with well-coated tannins. At this stage of youth, the quality of the fruit quenches the thirst.

Service temperature : 57°F



James Suckling : "The complex and compelling nose of red fruit pulls you inexorably into the concentrated and beautifully proportioned medium-bodied palate of this exciting Cote de Brouilly. At the super-elegant finish, the very fine tannins gently build to a mineral climax"
