Domaine les Roches Bleues Cotes de Brouilly Reserve des Vieilles Vignes 2010

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from the website www.cellartrade.co.uk for £7.Brouilly is an appellation for red wines created in 1938,although viticulture here goes back to the Romans, from six communes around the extinct volcano of Mount Brouilly some 20 miles south of the town of Macon.Cote de Brouilly refers to a smaller area on the upper slopes and both appellations are 'cru Beaujolais' and made from the gamay grape.My bottle comes from a small family concern and was made from 50 year old vines on the Cote de Brouilly and was aged in oak barrels. I started my bottle last night with my supper of pork chop.There is plenty of a bramble,blackcurant and licorice style fruit with soft tannins but a definite pepper or spicy finish.I thought this a very nice wine and I cannot be the only one to think so because in 2012 this wine got a gold medal at the Concours International de Gamay
