External Reviews for Georges Duboeuf Brouilly Château de Nervers
Nice, ripe dark fruits packed in this - cherries, plums, blackberries - along with some muscle. Picks up a smoky note on the firm finish, where the flavors linger. Drink now.
Brouilly is the largest of the Crus. It is named after an inactive volcano, the Mont. de Brouilly, that its extensive vineyards surround. The soil, quite typically, is a composition of several types of granite. The wine offers generous aromas of red fruits and plums with light mineral accents. It is a well-balanced wine that encourages the rich, fruity character of the Gamay grape.
Has ripe, medium-weight black cherry flavors, a touch of chocolate and a round, lively finish. Ideal with salmon or roast chicken. Drink now through 2002.
A robust wine, built with a firm structure very similar to Burgundy's Pommard and features spicy plum and cherry fruit.
A cinnamon spice nose greets you; the fruit is sweet up front, but finishes dry. There are no tannins to speak of, but the structure and balance is fine. Light-bodied and stylish.
Waxy black cherries emerge from the nose of the 2005 Brouilly Chateau de Nervers. A medium to full-bodied effort with impressive depth and concentration of fruit, it slathers the palate with sweet black fruits that linger in its prolonged finish. Rich, powerful, and fleshy, it will be at its peak between 2007 and 2014.
Nice range, with black cherry and raspberry fruit augmented by briar, spice and mineral hints. Good bit of grip on the finish. Drink now through 2007.
