Winemaker's Notes

Medium purple and ruby color. The nose speaks off blackcurrant, redcurrant, blueberry and other small red fruits. The mouth has sweet tannins and is rich of floral flavors as iris and violet. There is a good balance between a lovely freshness of fruit and velvety of tannins.

Food Pairing: When young accompany with eggs in red wine sauce. In a year or two it will be a perfect match for tender poultry.

Critical Acclaim

"With nearly 200 acres of vines, this is one of the largest Beaujolais estates. This Brouilly is ripe, raspberry-flavored, with fine sweet fruits and a tight core of tannin. The essential acidity is well balanced. "

This was indeed a light wine. I found it a little acid and lacking in body and did not find the complexity of flavor that other reviewers have noted. Not a wine that stands up to a beefsteak.

Learn About Beaujolais

(boe-show-lay) Upon hearing Beaujolais, many think of the large celebration for wine that comes out the 3rd week of November, that year's vintage of Beaujolais Nouveau. But the region of Beaujolais, situated at the bottom of the Burgundy AC, is more than just the nouveau. Some Beaujolais wines can be kept (gasp!) for up to 10 years! Those are usually the Cru Beaujolais and are...

Learn About Gamay

Gamay (gah-MAY) Beaujolais' Baby Gamay is a pale colored grape, best associated with the region of Beaujolas. In fact, few regions or grapes are so wholly intertwined with one another. After being universally rejected by the rest of Burgundy in the 14th century, Gamay found its niche a bit further south, in Beaujolais. Beyond that part of France, Gamay can also be...
