Winemaker 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

WE 88
Wine Enthusiast

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.

Chateau de Pierreux
Chateau de Pierreux, a 190-acres estate in Brouilly with a magnificent chateau winery built during the Renaissance, is one of the finest domains in the Beaujolais region. Our winemaker, Patrice Monternier, has 25 years of direct experience working with this terroir, inheriting expertise from his father, the winemaker before him. Here the sandy, pink granite soil sprinkeld with blue volcanic rocks is perfect for our Gamay grapes with 4,000 vines planted per 100 acres. Using ecologically friendly viticulture, working with vary low yields, selecting the oldest vines, restricting any unnecessary treatment, and using only narrative yeasts in the winery, we produce grapes (and ultimately wine) marked by the authentic character of their terroir.

Nearly synonymous with fine wine and all things epicurean, France has a culture of wine production and consumption that is deeply rooted in tradition. Many of the world’s most beloved grape varieties originated here, as did the concept of “terroir”—the notion that regions and vineyards convey a sense of place that is reflected in the resulting wine. Accordingly, most French wine is labeled by geographical location, rather than grape variety, which can be confusing to the general consumer, who can benefit from a general working knowledge of the major appellations. Some of the greatest wine regions in the world can be found here, including Bordeaux, Burgundy, the Rhône, and Champagne, but each part of the country has its own specialties and strengths.

Pinot Noir and [Chardonnay, always unblended, are the king and queen of Burgundy, producing elegant red and white wines with great acidity, the finest examples of which can age for decades and command astoundingly high auction prices. The same varieties, along with Pinot Meunier, are used in Champagne. Of comparable renown is Bordeaux, focused on bold, structured red wines that are almost always blends of some combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec. The primary white varieties of Bordeaux are Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. The Rhône Valley is responsible for monovarietal Syrah in the north, while in the south it is generally blended with Grenache and Mourvèdre. White Rhône varieties include Marsanne, Roussane, and Viognier. Most of these varieties are planted throughout the country and beyond, extending their influence into both the Old and New Worlds.
