"Flat", says Candace. I prefer the word 'dusty'. In fact, I'd argue, this is a good example of Rutherford Dust. "Are you", says Candace, "calling this wine flat?" "No", says I, "I am calling this wine similar in it's attempt to be something it ultimately is not." "And what prey tell is this wine 'ultimately not'? This wine is ultimately not good Beaujolais. Taste it again. And while you are pouring the taste, remind yourself to stop for a moment to ponder the design, look and feel of the bottle itself. The label is not glued on very well. Although I am sure many have been made, The bottle does not look mass produced. It looks like a Burgundy Bottle with a Cock Ring. A cock Ring? yes. A Cock Ring. This wine would like itself to be Charlie Sheen, but it can't, because there can be only one Charlie Sheen, and this is not who this is. Who is this then? This is not the King of Beuajolais. A mighty Count perhaps a Prince; but King, it is not. Color is spot on. Wood is efervescent. The subsequent swallows indicate carbonic maceration. Not that carbonic maceration is a bad thing. But the King would not allow itself to be treated in such crude fashion. The King would require a bit more finesse. Or would he? There's alcohol here, but really too much if it were to call itself King and be worthy of such titles. A true Beujoalis would need not high levels of alocohol to induce servitude; no, rather, a true Beaujolais need rely solely on the merits of the Gamay Grape and the Land from which it Came. Brouilly is not far from the Windmills, but not far is not even close when it comes to Wine Regions and Terroir; still, that does not stop Brouilly from wanting so badly to be thought of as King. Terroir is afterally, not solely a reflection of the land and the sea and the air; but also of the time and place, and of the people and thier culture that harnessed this Nousse of Earth and Sea and Air. And it changes with the will of the People. Terroir is but a reflection of Place. Now taste the wine. Let it sit in your mouth. Feel the earth. The dirt, the dust, the grit and the grain between your teeth. Stems and twigs, leaves and wort. Lustfull Ambition. A Lasting Dessert. Pretty Tannins on the teeth. Like soft wet plaster between my toes in the palm of my cheeks, my rosy red toes wiggle and waffle and send up Chinese Fireworks lighting gold and red writing written directly onto your body, I am struck by the earth of this wine. It overpowers everything else. Classic Brouilly. YES But is this the King of Beaujolais? NO this is not.

Very juicy - nose of cherry and jolly ranchers. Practically zero tannins, enough bit to keep it interesting, but very soft and smooth. The finish has some heat from the alcohol, but overall a very light wine.

Some riesling-esque petrol and minerality on the nose. Red apple, dried leaves. On the palate, some red apple and hints of pear. Interesting nuances. Drinks nice. 11/19/11

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

This ruby-coloured wine is rich in fruit aromas . It is made exclusively out of Gamay , a black grape with a white juice. The vine harvest is handmade according to a very strict selection of the ground provenances.

Funkelndes Rubinrot. Im Bouquet Aromen von Pflaumen, Pfirsich und roten Beeren mit einer dezent mineralischen Note. Eleganter und finessenreicher Gehalt, weicher, fruchtiger Ausklang.

Dunkles Granatrot. Aromen erinnern an schwarze Kirschen und Himbeeren. Breit und voll im Auftakt. Wirkt strukturiert mit anhaltender Aromatik.

A light and fragrant wine, deep purple in color, it is full of the typical berry-like flavors that are hallmarks of the best brouilly.
