Winemaker's Notes:

With an intense color, this wine has red fruit aromas which dominate the bouquet along with notes of wild strawberries. On the finish, blackcurrant and chocolate aromas reveal themselves. In the mouth this Beaujolais Cru is meaty whilst being rounded and has an impressively long finish. This is a great Brouilly in keeping with the Fessy tradition.

Pair with bold cheeses, T-bone steak or ribeyes, barbequed red meats, charcuterie and refined hors d'oeuvres.

About Henry Fessy:

Maison Henry Fessy today counts 75 acres under vine scattered throughout the Beau-jolais Cru and Villages appellations, 98% of which is planted with Gamay. The winery entirely redesigned in 2003 and was subsequently purchased by Maison Louis Latour in the winter of 2008. Henry Fessy's wines are exported to 35 countries and are among the best-selling Beaujolas Crus in Paris, the City of Lights! We hope you enjoy the tasting.
