Château de la Chaize Brouilly 2004
Light strawberry aromas add a distinct whiff of toasted white bread. Fruit is more forward on the palate, juicy red berries and a squirt of lemon, and the toasty aromas segue into a plesant earthy minerality to add flavor interest. FOOD MATCH: An offbeat match, curried summer squash soup, is just okay at first, palatable but not compelling, but the combination suddenly draws a gasp of pleasure when a sip of wine taken after a swallow of soup bursts on the palate like a perfect ripe strawberry.
A real barnyard nose - very woodsy and musty in the mouth. A deep and brooding gamay wine, but fantastic. Darker fruits than most gamay's. A mineral and mushroom finish. Tasted as part of a Beaujolais Boat Cruise
Started with a sharp acidic and ethyl attack, but mellowed shortly thereafter. Slightly woody with plums and mineral dominating in the mouth. - also tasted during the Beaujolais boat cruise
Nose was nice but a bit runny. Detected a hint of walnut along with a banana/strawberry flavor near the front of the palette. Went well with fish and dumplings.
