Essence de Fruit Brouilly 2015

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from a local supermarket where it was on special offer for £5. Brouilly is the largest [covering six communes] and most southerly of the cru Beaujolais appellations and is named after the extinct volcano of Mont Broilly on whose lower slopes the vines are planted. The smaller sister appellation of Cotes de Brouilly refers to the higher slopes.My bottle comes from the Cave du Chateau des Loges co-operative group.I started my bottle last night with my supper of turkey breast and as the name of the cuvee suggests there is certainly plenty of fruit. It is a blackcurrant and blackberry style fruit with soft tannins although it is a full-bodied and well structured wine. In short,this is a lovely wine that would match many foods and was good value for money.
