Brouilly Vieilles Vignes
Saint Vincent de Combiaty
Brouilly is the southernmost of the Beaujolais Crus. The hill was named after an officer under Caesar's command called Brulius. This famous, much enjoyed wine has a forthright attack with rounded blackberry and blackcurrant aromas.

The grapes are carefully hand picked on around 10th September when the grapes are fully ripe. 12-day semi-carbonic maceration allows all the colour and body to be released from the terroir into the wine, making it powerful and generous.
Maturing, bottling and tasting notes
A garnet-robed wine that is a harmony of ripe black berry fruit. The attack is fruity and heady, waking the taste-buds. On the palate the flavours are structured and well-balanced. This wine makes the perfect match to red meat and cheese.
