Brouilly Wine

 

Brouilly is an appellation created in 1938,although viticulture here goes back to at least the Romans, for red wines from six communes around the extinct volcano of Mount Brouilly some 20 miles south of the town of Macon.Cotes de Brouilly refers to a smaller area on the upper slopes and both appellations are 'cru Beaujolais' and like all Beaujolais made of the gamay grape. Gamay is a cross between pinot noir and an ancient grape called 'gouais' Brouilly is the largest of the crus of Beaujolais. Like the others, it is located on the high-quality vineyard land in the hilly, northern part of the region. It produces comparatively robust, richly textured wines, the best of which can improve for years in bottle.

  • Georges Viornery Côte de Brouilly Vieilles Vignes Cuvée Unique 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Nose is reminiscent of pink flowers. Nice perfume. Great black cherry, blueberry, and other bigger flavors than the delicate nose would indicate. Nice creamy finish, lush and pleasing.Tasted at Marché Bacchus 10/2/10 Read More

  • Chateau Thivin Côte de Brouilly Cru Beaujolais Was 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Very tight nose, but slight greenhouse-like bouquet. Deep, marrow-like sense on pretty red fruits with minerality and light acidity. Lots of wet stone.- Tasted at Marché Bacchus 9/11/10 Read More

  • Jean-Claude Lapalu Cuvee Vielles Viegnes 2009

    Snoothrank:

    On 6-26-2010. Undecanted from a preservation machine. Had a creamy round and sweet fruit nose with hints of juniper or mint. In the mouth the balance favored sweet fruit and "meat pie" with a background of slight bitterness, with bitter wood in the finish. Needs decanting, probably. Off-dry, body medium plus, acid medium minus, tannin medium minus. Read More
