Domaine de Conroy Cote de Brouilly 2011

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought two bottles of this wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/76666 for £10.Cote de Brouilly is a small appellation for red wines created in 1938 [ although viticulture here goes back to at least the Romans ] from the slopes of Mount Brouilly an extinct volcano about 20 miles south of the town of Macon. It is one of the 'cru' Beaujolais appellations.Like all Beaujolais it is made from the Gamay grape,a cross between pinot noir and a white grape called gouais introduced by the Romans.My bottle comes from the well established Chateau du Bluizard estate where there are some very old vines [average age is 40 years ] I started it last night with my supper of meat pie and I did enjoy it. There is plenty of a blackcurrant or blackberry style fruit there,the tannins are fairly soft and there is a hint of pepper or spice on the finish.My impresion was that this is a well structured and restrained wine of high quality.It was certainly good value for money.

Chateau du Bluizard:
The building was originally a fortified farm going back to 1260 and it has been in the Saint-Charles family since 1625. Marie and David Ratignier took over the operation of the two vineyards Domaine Saint Charles and Domaine Conroy in 2008 on the retirement of Jean Saint-Charles.. There are 32 hectares and they produce a range of red,rose,white and sparkling wines under the Beaujolais, Brouilly and Cote de Brouilly appellations
